Very cozy little B&B in a very nice neighborhood. We were worried that street noise would disturb our sleep (and they do provide ear plugs) but it turned out not to be a serious problem. Would gladly stay there again. You can have your breakfast brought to your room, although you do need to decide the night before at what... More

A great place to spend a few nights in San Francisco - the Inn has true character, is in a lovely and bustling setting (North Beach is getting kinda cool these days), and the people from reception to housekeepers were super-friendly and helpful. I think this place may be family-run. Breakfast, cookies and wine hour in the lobby was a... More

This small boutique hotel is in a fun location in San Francisco, North Beach. It is a bustling neighborhood, not a downtown tourist spot, which makes one feel at home. The hotel's rooms are tiny, with the exception of a few of their "suites", which are pretty much the size of a regular room elsewhere. While it does have some... More

Shabir made my stay!! His service was over the top, great! Because of him, I will be staying at the Washington Square Inn whenever I visit San Francisco. The Washington Square Inn is charming. He is the best and it is the best.

We stayed 3 nights there. Lovely place, room beautiful. Everything you need. The location is central, step outside and you are in North Beach with restaurants, bars etc. Buses on the Square to take you anywhere, 15 minutes to the Wharf. Would certainly return.

This B&B fell short of our expectations based upon its inclusion in Select Registry - Exceptional B&B's, Innns, and Hotels. Nothing about this Inn would have qualified it as exceptional. It really was not even marginal. We had booked 2 nights. We were so disappointed we chose to move on for our second night even though our payment was non-refundable.... More

We really enjoyed our stay. The location is great. Complimentary 'happy hour', very enjoyable, great breakfast. Little things make the difference, full length mirrors, special make up towels and ear plugs! Beautiful bedroom furniture. Would stay again.

This was a last-minute reservation, at a time where there were no places to stay closer to Union Square. But what a great surprise! The staff were friendly, the room was spacious and very clean, and it was the best WiFi I've had in a hotel, unexpected in an old Victorian. Really, really a nice place, with great proximity to...

I love this hotel! We always stay there when we are in San Francisco because of the staff, the breakfasts, and the location. The rooms are luxurious, although some are small, but every room we have tried is quiet and comfortable. We sent our son there for his honeymoon. Wonderful!

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.
