4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It is tough to find a reasonable hotel in San Francisco, but we were lucky with this pick. The room was small, but I imagine that is typical for this city. The shower and bathroom are shared down the hall which was an experience. We were only here one night so it was ok, but can't imagine a few days... More

Small older style hotel, shared bathrooms but I never had to wait. Nicely decorated, comfortable rooms. A little noisy from the restaurant kitchen downstairs but didn't really bother me much. Free hot drinks and iced water in reception. Wifi is free and good. It's possible to book a reasonably priced airport shuttle from here. I enjoyed my stay

The hotel is in a great location for lots of different areas (and great value for the areas too)- very close to Fisherman's Wharf and east walking to China town, cable cars and coit tower. We has previously stayed in downtown and this area was better for pretty much everything (only exception - shopping). All the staff we spoke to... More

The place is amazing, it feels like taking the time machine and going back 50years without missing out on any essential comfort (ok, there's no tv in the room, but who needs it really, when you are in such a city?!). The room and restrooms are very clean and there's tea and coffee all day free in the lobby. Very... More

This hotel was great for my husband and I on our honeymoon. The location is great and you can easily walk to many attractions. The atmosphere is laid back and everyone we encountered was very friendly. The price really can’t be beat for San Francisco. It didn’t make much of a difference for us not having our own bathroom or... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in San Remo. The location is perfect if you plan to hang around the fisherman's wharf area. The hotel is small, as are the rooms, however it has that cosy feel to it. The rooms are cleaner daily and there is an almost constant supply of tea, coffee (plus flavourings and toppings), muffins and sweets,... More

Me and my boyfriend spent 3 nights in this lovely, quaint hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful which made our stay so pleasant. Although the hotel doesn't serve breakfast, the endless supply of tea/coffee and lemon infused water in the lobby was a great touch. Before we booked the hotel we knew that the bathrooms were shared (which... More

We appreciate your comments about our staff and hotel.

We do have Family Suites that allow you to have more space and privacy while remaining affordable. Our great location... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
