We stayed one night at the San Remo and then repeated the experience a few days later when we returned to San Francisco. It won't be your cup of tea if you like a modern, en-suite, characterless, could-be-anywhere hotel stay. But for something different in a great location just a few blocks from Fisherman's Wharf and bus and cable car... More

Over all we enjoyed our stay in this quirky hotel and I would recommend it, if this is all you can afford. The location is great, esp for the price, you are in walking distance of a lot things, e.g. Alcatraz pier, where you catch the ferry to the island (book at least 2 weeks in advance if you want...

My brother and I spent 3 nights in San Francisco at this hotel. We loved it! It was relatively cheaply prices, especially for its location! Only a couple blocks walk to Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Lombards corkscrews and the Powell, Market cable car turnaround was just a block away! Perfectly placed! Even a Safeway and Walgreens a block away, where... More

My mom and I traveled to San Francisco for our first time and stayed at the San Remo Hotel. It is a very unique hotel and a great value compared to the prices of other hotels in this area. The only downside is how small the rooms are and the shared bathrooms. We spent most of our time exploring the... More

Stayed two nights Oct. 19 & 20, 2015 based on reviews I read. My friend was a little skeptical when I mentioned that it's one of the best budget hotels in San Francisco -the main caveat are the shared bathrooms. "Just trust me on this" is all I would say. We were completely charmed and amazed with the San Remo.... More

Thank you for your very kind words, it is always a good feeling to know that you were elated with your choice and that your friend “trusted your instincts”.

Spent two great nights at our favorite SF Hotel. Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms cozy-big suitcases can be a problem-but comfy. Everything is clean and fresh. Never had a problem with a messy toilet or showers-and since these are shared, that's a plus. Never had to wait to use either toilets or showers either. Reasonable prices and a great... More

We've loved this place for many visits, many years! The small rooms and shared bathrooms only add charm in our way of looking at it. The location, as other reviewers note, is excellent. Fisherman's wharf at the doorstep, and the #30 bus nearby takes you either downtown thru Chinatown, or out to the Presidio. [Just $1 for seniors like us]... 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.
