This hotel is an excellent option in the Union Square area - it's well-run, well-maintained, clean, conveniently located and reasonably priced. My room (shared bathroom) was small but comfortable and pleasant. The hotel is quite quiet, though any noise does have the potential to carry in such an old building (floors are a bit creaky, etc.). The staff and proprietors...

We booked our stay at GGH after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. We had never been to the city and were a little unsure of our surroundings our first night. Spencer at the front desk assured is that we would be safe walking after dark in search of dinner and gave us recommendations. The room was comfortable as was the plush...

The building itself exudes character and charm makiing your stay quite homey. All of the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, and they go way beyond what one might expect from a city hotel.

The Golden Gate Hotel definitely qualifies as interesting and unique. A big part of the charm comes from the cat, Pip, and dogs that greet you when you arrive. The building itself is one of a kind and includes an old birdcage elevator that you probably won't find elsewhere. The location is central and near the major transportation routes. Our...

The Golden Gate Hotel is a charming establishment near Union Square in San Francisco. It's very near the cable car line, within walking distance of the BART station, and surrounded by a number of cafes and Asian restaurants. Like many guests, I was first drawn to the Golden Gate because of the resident pets. Pip the chamberlain takes his job...

This is a special place. It is a charming, welcoming hotel in a fantastic location only 5 minutes from Union Square. The staff are extremely friendly and the hotel has a real homely feel to it.

We had a brief stay at the Golden Gate Hotel, and we were completely happy with our choice. The Man and I made a last-minute reservation for the lowest cost room (double bed with a shared restroom), which contained an in-room shower, wash basin, and closet. While the room had modest dimensions, based on its tasteful design and sensible layout,...

My wife and I stayed at the Golden Gate Hotel after receiving a recommendation from one of our American friends.

We arrived early Saturday afternoon and were warmly welcomed by Spencer at the front desk and Pip, the cat. Pip checked us over and accompanied us in the antique elevator to show us our room.

I am a film director and my work takes me all around the country. I was fortunate enough to come across the Golden Gate Hotel when I was filming in San Francisco.
