Rooms are small, but charming some with in room sinks. Only one suite on the top floor which was booked. My family and I only needed a place for 2 nights before we could get into the apartment we rented and this was a good place for that length of time. Any longer and we would have been tired of...

We had a great stay at the San Remo! The hotel is very quaint and well maintained. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and the beds were very comfortable. We had no issues with noise, the hotel was very quiet as was the street our room opened to. The location is ideal for tourists. It's right by the heart... More

If you want all the amenities like fridge, micro, aircon, private bathroom, etc this is not for you. However if you like to experience old world facilities that are clean , comfortable and handy to all things "Fishermans Wharf" then this place is perfect.

Thank you for your review. We are very glad that you liked the hotel, and found it to be in a very good location. We cannot emphasize enough that San Francisco, like many other big cities (Paris, Rome, London) is very expensive and that our prices are very reasonable. We’ve been working on the speed and signal strength of our... More

Very inventively/originally furnished. The bathsrooms are shared and none looks like the others :-) They also have an isolated bath tub. Friendly staff <3 Within Walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf.

Thank you for your review. Our historic hotel is unique in many ways, each room has a different feel, some rooms have oak beds, other brass beds with carefully chosen matching rugs and art work. Thanks for choosing us and we hope you come back again when your travels bring you to our lovely city. :) More

We spent four nights at the San Remo hotel and were very pleased with our stay. The stuff was very polite and friendly, the rooms rather small but cosy. The hote's location is great: only a few minutes walk away from fisherman's ward and downtown is also not far away. If you're used to modern designed rooms with loads of... More

Fantastic hotel minutes from the wharf. Does have shared bathrooms but was not an issue and more than reflected in the price. If this is an issue for you there is a Sheraton down the road for another $50 a night! Would not hesitate to stay in this clean well run hotel again. The 2 free massage chairs were an... More

Love this place. Right out of history but in a nice way. Rooms are relatively small but big enought to be comfortable. Very friendly staff, clean, tidy. Free tea, coffee and iced water which is good. A pleasure to be staying here.

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.
