I have never stayed at a place where i share bathrooms and showers with other people. BUT this hotel is beyond the cleanest hotel i have ever stayed in, EVER.

Thank you for your review. Our housekeeping works hard to maintain the property clean, your comments will certainly make them very happy. We like to celebrate the holidays, we usually decorate the hotel according to the time of the year, we believe this makes the hotel more festive and vibrant. The massage chair is a sample of what we do... More

Randomly found this hotel via a google map search and it was a great find. Perfect location and way more affordable then the avg hotels in the area. Stayed 3 nights w/my daughter (age 20) and we were both very pleased. I cannot say enough about how helpful the girl at the front desk was during our first night and... More

You can walk here to anywhere you please which is good because finding parking in San Francisco is not an option. Very quaint and unique. Be prepared for the communal wash rooms as it is unlike any hotel.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and found us to be accommodating. If you do bring a car to San Francisco, we have a great agreement with a parking lot close to the hotel that charges $20.00 per night, a real bargain for our city. We look forward to serving you again in the future. Thank... More

We stayed at the San Remo for 2 nights whilst seeing the sights of San Francisco. It is incredibly convenient for the Fisherman's Wharf area of town and nothing beat getting up at 7am and walking down to pier 39 in the morning sunshine with nobody around....amazingly convenient! The staff were always polite and friendly and the little easter treats... More

We just finished a six night stay at the San Remo Hotel and loved it. The hotel is a refreshing change from the cookie cutter rooms of many modern "chain" hotels. Having travelled Europe extensively we are used to pensione style hotels with bathroom amenities "down the hall". Our room, the bathrooms, and the hotel were very clean and well... More

It was my first time traveling in San Francisco and not only will I always remember the city how I saw it first, I will always remember this gem of a hotel.

Thank you for staying in our hotel and for your review. The quiet street of our hotel does make you feel like a “local” in San Francisco, far from the noise and commotion of Fisherman’s Wharf, yet just a few blocks away. We love to hear that you found our hotel to be reminiscent of a musical set. If you... More

One of the main reasons people travel is to experience something different. Our hotel with its authentic style, layout and decor offers exactly that.

Charming hotel close to the wharf, bus line, downtown San Francisco. Bathroom down the hall, but you can choose rooms with sinks, which helps. I never had to wait in line for a shower or toilet. Helpful staff, and the guests are often global travelers willing to say "hello". I'll gladly stay there again.

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.
