Having stayed at many hotels over the US, I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The staff are really friendly, old fashioned lift and pip the cat. Breakfast is lovely crossiants, muffins and coffee, and even in the afternoon they offer cookies, tea and coffee. Location is good, not far from Union square and Chinatown. Also not far to get...

We had a family room and a double room, they were both very clean and very spacious. As soon as we arrived, Spencer warmly greeted us and made us feel relaxed in a city we'd never been to before. He outlined some points of interests and local restaurants on a map for us, which was really useful; he couldn't have... More

My 15-year-old daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights in June, 2016. The hotel exceeded our expectations. The place has a character not found in most chain hotels. The staff were uniformly warm, friendly, and helpful. The facilities and amenities were all well-kept and everything worked as expected. The building itself was quaint and appealing, from the cat ('Pip')... More

This is a fantastic hotel with beautiful decor, comfortable beds and quiet rooms. Best of all, the hotelier was exceptionally welcoming and someone for whom nothing was too much. He made our stay in San Francisco special.

Greatest asset is the hotel cat. He loves the lounge area and likes company. The hotel has a lift from the 1920's which is cool to try once or twice - it's got a cage double door. The rooms have an open window over looking the interior private fire escape well. The room had a washing sink and shared a... More

We had a very enjoyable stay here - liked the decor, the friendly cat and dog, afternoon cookies, croissant breakfast and antique lift. Our room was small but comfortable with good storage. We had a shared (small) bathroom but that did not cause any problems. Everyone working there was friendly and helpful. Room has small tv and no fridge which... More

Looking for affordable options we ran into this hotel. We used the shared bathroom but did not have to wait just once to get into the shower, perfect! The atmosphere is relaxed and homely with the local house cat bouncing around. Location is central to all the touristic attractions. Only positive comments about the Golden Gate hotel!

Ok it's small, but right from the warm welcome (incl a purring cat!) to the Antique lift to the smallish bedroom with the most comfy of beds (slept like a log) it Oozes character. Located just a 6 or 7 min walk to Union sq (hop on hop off tour buses located here plus many bars & restaurants) plus the... More

We had a lovely 2-night stay at this charming bed and breakfast. We stayed in a room with a private bathroom so I cannot comment on the community bathrooms. The room itself is small but very cozy. The breakfast and tea offered every morning and afternoon is a wonderful way to get to know your fellow travelers. The hotel cat... More
