The hotel location is great, within the heart of the North Beach community and Chinatown and the Union Square not to far either. The hotel beautifully depicts the late 50's and early 60's era that takes you back in time. The rooms are spotless and comfortable. Overall, a good hotel if you're in the vicinity. -- A drop of ink...

The hotel is beautifully maintained and the rooms are cozy and tidy. This is a real "old time hotel" with charm and personality. Others have mentioned the stairs and they are no joke! But don't let that discourage you if your looking for charm and a great location. There are so many options on places to eat and your steps...

Great little hotel right in the heart of Little Italy in North Beach. Great base to explore SF. Fishermans Wharf, Chinatown, Union Square all short walks. North Beach great bars and restaurants, and of course Beat Generation bookshop City Lights. Staff were friendly, rooms small but comfortable and nicely decorated. A nice change from the US chain hotels. Nice touch...

The host was friendly and the room was clean which might be enough for some visitors, but coming from overseas and carrying a lot of luggage I was disappointed to find that we had to walk up a number of stairs to get to our bedroom. The room was very small with an even smaller bathroom . During the night...

We picked Hotel Boheme because we expected to spend most of our time walking around the North Beach area. If that is our focus as well, this is an excellent choice. The room was small but very comfortable, especially the bed. Staff very nice. This is not the Ritz, but if you want to experience North Beach, this is a...

Overall we liked this hotel. Its a tiny place with about 10 rooms right in the heart of the Little Italy area in North Beach in San Francisco. The tiny rooms are decorated with colorful paint and posters from the 1960s. The rooms are exceptionally clean and the staff are super friendly and helpful. At the street level there is...

Visiting from Australia we chose a boutique experience over the big chains and Hotel Boheme ticked all the boxes. Quaint bohemian and spotlessly clean we absolutely loved this place and would thoroughly recommend to anyone seeking a slightly different hotel experience. It is situated in a great area of north beach restaurants on your doorstep. Be prepared for no elevator...

Visited seven years ago, liked it as much as we did then! Great location, quirky upstairs location, restaurants within walking distance every way you turn, Clean but small rooms, within walking distance of Pier 39' Fishermans Wharf and all the local attractions, would visit 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.
