San Remo is definitely not for the high maintenance guest. However, it has all the bare essentials you need to get by with. My husband and I stayed 2 nights in a 10x10 room which included a full size bed, an antique armoire like cabinet to store our belongings and 2 night stands with table lamps. There is no AC... More

Heavily researched San Francisco hotels and just kept coming back to this one. Of course there are higher standard hotels but this is pound for pound the best one around. Loads of character, small but adequate rooms, helpful staff and a really good location. Save your money on the accommodation and spend it in the fantastic bars and restaurants throughout... More

I've stayed at the San Remo Hotel a few times because it's inexpensive compared to other hotels in the city and is within walking distance of a lot of great restaurants and sights. If you're looking for luxury, this isn't the place for you. The bathrooms on each floor are shared and the rooms are bare-bones: no television, no phone,... More

If you can cope with shared bathrooms and showers, this is a superior european style pensione. It is in a charming early 1900's hotel with abundant daylight and houseplants. We often meet europeans staying here- they understand the small room,no phone/tv, concept. Who needs more if you are there to get out and see the city? The staff is incredibly... More

I stayed here for three nights at Thanksgiving with my two teenagers. I had read the reviews and trusted that tripadvisor would not steer me wrong. It was WONDERFUL!! Quiet, safe, cozy. Felt as though it was near everything, but the block it's on is redesigned residential homes and nice apartments. Quiet! Pros: near Trader Joe's, Safeway, Walgreens, Barnes &... More

What a beautiful building this is - you feel like you are visiting a Historic Home, except they let you stay! I spent two nights in a tiny room with no external windows, and had expected something fairly ordinary for the price, but was really surprised to find there was an internal window onto the passage, with pretty curtains, attractive...

Felt like a homey boarding house in Victorian England. If you don't mind shared bathroom it's perfect. Bring your shower shoes and enjoy this charming little place. 1 block from sushi, Trader Joe's, 2 blocks from parking (extra charge) and 4 blocks from the wharf. I will stay here again for sure.

This is basically a room rental, a very small room rental. We were worried about sharing the bathrooms and showers with the rest of the hotel, but it really wasn’t an issue. The bad part was waking up at 3 a.m. having to go to the restroom (too much wine downstairs at Fior d’Italia!) and it was a pain trying... More

This is a no frills hotel where you share use of the bathrooms and showers with other guests. We were a little bit worried about that part of it, but for the price, thought it would be worth a try. We did opt for a sink in our room, which was convenient for brushing our teeth, putting in contacts, and... More

Pros: Very clean, helpful staff, hotel has a lot of character. Excellent location and great price. Beds are very comfortable and the shared bathrooms are more private than I originally imagined. I would stay again or recommend to friends & family. Cons: No A/C. Which was not needed for temperature but for a little back ground noise. Rooms are over... 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.
