Fanatic historic hotel with such character and charm. Amazing value for the price. Yes the rooms are small and there isn't a breakfast and you have shared bathrooms for the floor but I loved every second of my visit. Perks: amazing location! free earplugs, soap, raisins in room. Shampoo and conditoners in shower. Towel warmers in the hall. And my... More

Upsides were the cozy character of the hotel and the friendly staff. Sharing bathroom was also no problem here, cause it was clean and good logistics with many small bathrooms. Down sides were the small room and a weird bell tower playing this kid song over and over, crazy annoying. If they somehow broke the bell playing this song I... More

San Remo was one of the cheaper, better rated hotels I could find in San Fran. And what a find! Although rooms are small, they're absolutely spotless. They have their own sink too. Shared showers on second floor are spacious and cleaned more than twice a day I would say. They're always clean. They have disposable bath mats, shampoo, conditioner... More

We have a reputation for being in a wonderful location, close to many of the most desirable attractions and necessities, like pharmacies and supermarkets, yet in a quiet neighborhood, a real San Francisco experience. We are not a modern Hotel and we take great pride in keeping an old world charm of this 1906 Hotel by maintaining its historic authenticity,... More

This place is great. Yes, the rooms are small. But this place makes up for it elsewhere. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, the space is used very efficiently, the facilities may look Victorian era, but are very functional, the location can't be beat (especially for the price), and the all-around atmosphere was great. Our window overlooked an alley... More

I had to book a room last minute for a conference. Only room I could find under $200 was San Remo. It is a great location, staff were extremely helpful. Room and shared spaces are old and tight (narrow hallways, small rooms) but clean, comfortable and very satisfactory. It would be nice to have tea and coffee before 8 am... More

We stayed for 3 nights at San Remo. First impression, the hotel is really unique. There are many intricate knick knacks, vintage furnitures and lots of brochures relevant for tourists. Check in was quick and fuss free. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our room is at level 3 and it is really small. The bed took up 2/3 of... More

San Remo is absolutely charming! I can't imagine a better location, rooms are quaint and cozy, very reasonably priced, spotless restrooms & showers down the hall and we never had to wait, excellent staff, daily maid service, beautiful old building, interesting photos on the walls, and a kind and friendly owner. Maybe it's not for everyone, for whatever reasons they... More

My stay at the San Remo was amazing! The location was perfect: a quiet neighborhood that is definitely within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Square and a plethora of restaurants (including the one below the hotel where San Remo guests receive a 15% discount!). Aside from the location, the staff were always amazing, helpful, courteous and incredibly friendly. The... 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.
