I've mostly stayed in hotels which are somewhere in the border region between budget and mid-range. This one is quite firmly in the mid-range category and in general has a higher standard than I'm used to, though I did choose the more budget option of a room with a shared bathroom. The bathroom was shared by three rooms, though I... More

I found the Golden Gate Hotel on Trip Advisor and was attracted by the excellent reviews and its convenient location. I can understand why so many people have enjoyed staying there. it is a small, quiet and friendly hotel, close to Union Square, the cable cars and Chinatown. Breakfasts were great and the breakfast room was a good place to... More

We booked this hotel as we didn't want to stay in a large chain of hotels plus it came highly recommended on trip advisor. The hotel staff and owner were very pleasant and helpful and the afternoon tea and cookies were just what was needed after a day out. The rooms were small but very well equipped and the beds...

Great location, excellent management! A terrific value! We enjoyed the continental breakfast with perfect coffee, hot croissants and FRESH JUICE! Our room was comfortable (great bed) and very tastefully furnished.

1 block from the cable car line, 2 blocks from Union Square. Parking is across the street. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. There is a resident cat. They had cookies at tea and the opportunity to share tables at breakfast so we meet people. Great atmosphere. It is very hard to find family rooms in San Francisco, and they... More

Beautiful hotel in the heart of San Francisco. We stayed there for 2 nights and had a really great time. The room was very nice, clean and very quiet. The breakfasts and afternoon teas were delicious and the staff always helpful. Great place to stay at.

Very friendly, convenient and affordable hotel in a convenient location near Chinatown. Reasonably priced parking garage is right across the street. My husband comes here frequently on business trips. Unfortunately, a room with a private bath was not available, so we needed to share a "toilet", but we had a small shower and sink in our room. The room was... More

This boutique hotel is well located near Chinatown and the main shopping district but the rooms are cramped. They offer twin rooms with shared bathrooms that turn out to have a single 3/4 sized bed, so it's a good job our kids are small. Breakfast is just croissants and muffins with juice and coffee, no fruit or eggs, and the... More

We had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Golden Gate on 3 occasions totalling 8 nights recently on our visits to San Francisco. The positive reviews we had read are all true. We stayed in a queen bed with private facilities at the rear of the building which was quiet. The rooms are cosy and the private bathrooms small... More

The BEST hotel experience and a heartwarming memory that will stay with me for a long time. What's not to like about this place? Adorable old-fashioned rooms, the antique elevator, immaculate bathrooms, carefully selected fresh flowers every day on the tables, museum-like displays on the walls, cute croissants and coffee breakfast, perfect location right downtown...But of course the best part...
