The Golden Gate is a charming hotel, very conveniently located, with wonderful hosts. Breakfasts were included and they were excellent Principle tourists sites were within walking distance. This will be our hotel of choice for our next visit to San Francisco.

I stayed here on a recent business trip, and made my decision based on price. I admit I was nervous before I got there -- how could a place with this location stay so affordable? This place exceeded my expectations. It was very clean and very well kept. It was also quiet and welcoming. Tucked in-between larger buildings, this 4...

I arrived mid-evening after a long trip. The lovely gentleman at reception took my bag up to my room then delivered a pot of hot tea and home-baked biscuits. This made me very happy indeed – that and the upgrade on the room. Thank you very much! The bed was the most comfortable I've slept in and the shower was...

My daughter and I spent three days at this cosy, charming boutique hotel that is very well located near the prime San Francisco shopping district of Union Square. This was my first visit to San Francisco and I will always remember it for its beautiful bridge, fantastic shopping, multiple sights, and the Golden Gate Hotel. We had a room with...

This is a really nice peaceful place to return to after a hectic day in the city. Close to cable car and Bart. The room is well equipped and very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Pip the cat is the USP. She is so friendly, often sitting next to me at breakfast (wanting a piece of my croissant!) The tea at...

Incredible Location. Few hotels have this hospitality. Had the tea from 5 pm to 7pm and share experiences with different nationalities people. Administration is formidable and the look inside the rooms makes you fill a hundred years ago. A lot of good taste in decoration, PEP (Adorable pet) welcomes you every time you go to the entrance of the hotel....

This is a wonderful gem of a hotel located within walking distance of Union Square. We stayed for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The ambience and the room were wonderful. It was easy to get to cable cars and the BART. There were very good little restaurants and cafes around us. Enjoyed the morning pastries and coffee and...

We stayed here for four nights on our first trip to San Francisco. The hotel was built in 1913 and retains many original features including the lift. There is a Manx cat called Pip who patrols the reception area and, one day, miaowed outside our door with a view to inspecting our room. The staff are charming and helpful and...

This is an excellent place to stay in SF. There is a parking garage across the street to park your car. The place in small and cozy and the staff are very nice and friendly. We walked from the hotel to nearby tourist sites like Chinatown and Union Square. It was a short drive to Golden Gate Park and Haight-Ashbury....
