Stayed here 4 nights.. Nice location close to cable cars and Union Sq. Had a very nice room on the ground floor with private bath. The owners really sweet and nice personnel. The dog Cookie and the cat Pip really nice asset to the place :)... Good breakfast in the morning. Would love to come back again.

the owners and staff were incredibly warm and welcoming. The atmosphere was like home away from home. It felt cozy, friendly yet we had our privacy. It was very clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was delicious and elegant. Great afternoon homemade cookies and tea were a nice break in a day of sight seeing. Great location. We will be... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in May. The location is fantastic - walking distance to many attractions and transportation. Our room was very comfortable and we slept well. Fresh coffee and croissants and muffins were served in the little dining area which was a very civilized way to start each day. Service was very friendly. I... More

We selected the Golden Gate hotel due to its location, which is just off the cable car line and central to transportation and easy walk to many sights. The Golden Gate Hotel is a nicely remodeled 100 year hotel with a friendly and responsive staff and a good breakfast of coffee and croissants (and usually muffins). The staff's advice on... More

Extremely pleasant old style hotel. Excellent and friendly service. Continental breakfast was most adequate and enjoyable. Comfortable rooms. Very centrally situated too. If you like walking it is a pleasant walk to Fishermans Wharf as well as Lombard Street and the Chinese sector. I would definitely stay her again.

I have been staying at the Golden gate since 1985. My last visit was for chrismas with my entire family this time. My daughters 19 and 20 years old loved it too.. Great location with very friendly staff. I highly recommend chatting with the owner over tea in the afternoon and having the european style breakfast with the cat welcoming... More

This was a beautiful B&B which mirrored my expectations of everything it should be....friendly, quaint, authentic. Very friendly family run accommodation, clean and tidy rooms and facilities. Shared bathrooms not an issue. Quiet location although central and close to all shops and attractions and sights. Couple couldn't do more for us....on our last day we had an early start to... More

The Golden Gate Hotel was everything we needed in a place to stay. All the staff were helpful and friendly. We arrived well before the stated check-in time but our room was ready and we could move our luggage in right away. We had a queen w/ private bath, very light and comfortable. We overlooked the street, which we enjoyed.... More

A nice and historic hotel walking distance to all key sites in San Francisco. Very comfortable bed / bedding. Quiet. Friendly staff. Parking conveniently located across the street ($ 30/night). Breakfast includes really nice (European style) croissants and muffins with fresh orange juice and strong coffee (unfortunately no espressos available). Would stay here again.
