The hotel is located in Fisherman's Wharf. We navigated the BART and then the F tram getting off at Pier 39. First glimpse of Alcatraz which was great. The hotel is a short walk up Mason. The reception is up a flight of stairs, this is where you're first introduced to the hotel's character. The rooms are shared bathrooms, these... More

This hotel will become your home in North Beach, a haven for hedonists and culture hounds. Count on style, cleanliness, and comfort. Helpful staff and a great price. Easy access to public transportation, or walk a bit and you are downtown or on fisherman's wharf.

My husband and I spent 3 separate nights at the San Remo Hotel. It's a quirky place (in a POSITIVE way, with loads of character), within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39, and is exceptionally good value for money. The staff and general manager are friendly and extremely helpful, and our experience was that if they can possibly... More

The San Remo Hotel oozes charm. The rooms are very small, some have sinks and some don't. The shared showers and toilets (and there are plenty - I didn't have to wait long for a shower) are kept very clean. As this was our last hotel on our US trip, I wasn't looking forward to sharing these amenities. But the... More

Thank you very much for your review. We are a historic hotel and work hard to maintain it faithful to the way it was built back in 1906. This year marks the 110 anniversary of its construction. The layout and style remain the same, but we bring more modern necessities like free wi-fi and refreshments throughout the day. The set-up... More

The reviews on here all seem clear and fair but for the avoidance of doubt - the rooms in this hotel are very small (as in you can't fit much more than a bed and luggage in them), there's no glamorous lobby or elevators, the bathrooms and toilets are shared and at the end of the hallway.

Thank you for taking the time to write about our hotel. Our rooms are cozy and small, but our prices are more than proportional.

We spent two nights in downtown San Francisco in this quirky old hotel. Built after the 1906 fire, it has definitely been updated but retains its old world charm. A couple blocks from Fisherman's Wharf and the Powell St. trolley stop, it's quite convenient. It is NOT your average, cookie-cutter hotel. The lobby area(s) are decorated in a kitschy, flowered-wallpaper... More

This is a great place to stay in central San Fransisco. It's a 2* hotel with shared bathrooms and toilets. The staff are really friendly, the rooms are small but the beds really comfortable and the shared facilities immaculately clean. Fantastic value.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a family-owned historic boutique pension-style hotel located in North Beach, one of San Francisco's oldest and most popular tourist destinations, and only a few blocks from Fisherman's Wharf. Built in 1906, our hotel maintains an atmosphere of Old-World charm and ambiance with specially selected antique furnishings - no two rooms are alike. The walls of the hotel are filled with a collection of memorabilia and history. Our style is simplicity and sanctuary - there are no room telephones, no televisions, and on the order of European pensions, shared baths which are meticulously cleaned daily, and are private when in use, but for all guests to use. Our rooms are cozy and small, our prices are proportional. Our staff is available while our Front Desk is open to help you find anything your heart desires. A truly unique, non-standardized hotel experience. ... more   less
