Hey guys this is a blast from the far distant past. It is a really special experience to stay in a place like this. I am so glad this place has been so lovingly preserved and kept up. Think cozy and small scale for the physical environment but a warm and loving emotional vibe. It was fun to look at... More

Thanks for your fabulous review Mariepsych from San Jose! You figured us out and only after one session on our massage chair! Hope we were able to provide you with some relaxation therapy in the fog. You coined a new term "charm-glore" for the San Remo, couldn't find it in Webster's, sounds like a good thing. You could be a... More

What a great value! All I needed was a clean, safe place to sleep. There is too much to do in SF to hang out in your hotel room! This place has it all! Close to Pier 39, Ghiradhelli Square, Lombard Street, & quite possible some of the best Italian food I've ever had in the ground floor of this... More

Thank you Iluv2ogoaway, and so do we. The next best thing to getting away is to be around our lovely guests who are away. We're glad we were able to meet your accommodation needs while you were in San Francisco. The San Remo does have a strategic location just a block off the beaten path from all the iconic attractions... More

What a perfect place to spend a few nights in the city! Conveniently located near Fisherman's Wharf, cable car line, & Buena Vista. Felt like being in a warm European home instead of a cold hotel. Definitely an A+ place!!!!!

Note: we actually went here in Oct '13 but it won't let me review that far back! Booked this guesthouse based on price and location and it was fab. As long as you understand it is a guesthouse and there is no en suit or restaurant then you'll love it. Victorian style bedrooms with shared very clean showers and toilets.... More

Thanks for your kind words Soton--Russ and we are happy you enjoyed our Victorian eclectic decor. We do have a restaurant though! it's right below us with a great Oak bar that came around the horn. It's got a great happy hour and jazz several times a week by the Mal Sharpe Big Money Jazz Band with frequent guest singers.... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times before. Can't believe I have not written a review. Tucked away on Mason Street, just three short blocks from Fisherman's Wharf, is San Francisco's best kept secret. Amazing hotel. Pristine clean rooms. Most friendly staff you'll find anywhere. The rooms are lovely, and decorated 50's glam. Feels like you've stepped back 60... More

Hi Jackie K from Sacto, Don't feel too guilty about not having reviewed us, better late then never, I've never reviewed a hotel on TA either, although I guess I review the San Remo everyday and pay attention to what our lovely guests, from around the world, like you have to say. Thanks for staying with us so often, we're... More

San Remo was recommended to me by my daughters boyfriend and it didnt disappoint. It was the opposite of a travelodge. The rooms were furnished and decorated with 'vintage' items, lovely brass beds in some, wooden ones in others. The communal areas were festooned with plants and the walls were covered with interesting pictures. We were there on 31st October... More

Thank you SarahK from the UK for staying with us and thank your daughter's boyfriend for the recommendation! We're glad you appreciated that we keep our unoccupied room doors open for folks to view their diversity in decor. We're mostly Victorian, but some pieces are deco to waterfall 40's, no two rooms are alike. It sounds like you were in-house... More

So I relocated and booked in this place at the last minute because I was disappointed by the last hostel. Warm, and antic interior decoration - vintage typed look. Great location, very close to the Fisherman's Wharf, all the best places in San Francisco etc. Lots of great breakfast places around too!

Thank you for the kind words Josephine from Perth! Glad we were able to fill in in the breach and accommodate your stay in San Francisco. We're looking for a Mini Moke maybe a Californian that you'll made down in OZ for many years, to use as a donkey for the hotel. Thinking of electrifying it into a mini screamer,... More

The San Remo is a lovely old building and this adds to the interior charm - attractive decor and quaint rooms! But it won't be for everyone. The bedrooms are very small and only have a sink, with showers and toilets found at the end of the hall - only two of each so at peak cleansing times there can... More

Thank you for sharing the good and the not so good, we will fix the not so good. We will look into the door slamming issue, sometimes folks aren't always aware of their surroundings and that occasional gust of wind. Now that it's the off season we will put some weatherstripping around the doors to cushion the blow and look... More

From booking our room to check out, the staff here are simply the best. The employees here have superior customer service skills that are rarely seen let alone experienced anymore. When booking our rooms the gentleman on the phone was more than helpful, he was patient and polite when answering any questions I had. The front clerk was helpful in... More

Thank you so much for your lovely words, we never get tired of hearing them, Our staff does do a great job of trying to make all our guests feel that the San Remo is their home away from home. We think we could make the Queen of England happy--maybe--we do have heated towels on racks next to our showers.... More

We stayed at the San Remo for 2 nights. The location was fantastic. Right near fisherman's wharf and the cable car. The staff were really friendly and it felt like a safe place. The shower room is small and can be busy; it feels more like a hostel. There were shops really close and there is a great cafe very... More

Thanks for staying with us! We are a bit difficult to pigeon hole, we got thrown into the TA category with hostels and other specialty lodgings in SF. We think we are an historic hotel and built in 1906 we probably are. Our walls are lined with paintings, pictures, posters, old maps and memorabilia of our area's history. There are... More
