San Remo hotel has excellent location with walking distance to Pier 39 and Fisherman's wharf. The area around is 2h free parking with free overnight parking, so no need to pay 20$ for the garage parking. The hotel itself is very interesting. The rooms are small, but with their special charm. It is surprising how they fitted so many antique... More

To start with - the hotel is amazingly presented, its beautiful and the lobby staff are friendly and helpful, with the drinks station a nice touch. My two main gripes with the hotel is the noise from the other rooms and the noises the mattress makes when you move on it. When we arrived our original room has the double... More

Me and my buddy had a pleasant stay at San Remo hotel. It was very cozy and relaxing to stay here. The area was quiet but yet in walking distance to Fisherman's Warf and other sights. The only negative was that our room was in the middle of the building with no window to the outside world. It got really... More

Great location for tourists. Clean. Quiet. Free coffee. I would describe the place as old and tired. Small room. Old uncomfortable bed. Good massage chair. Thin walls so have to be quiet between 8pm and 8am.

Thank you for your review, and for mentioning that we are located in a good location as well as our free massage chairs and coffee. Our historic 1906 building is old, yes, but not tired. It has been lovingly restored and impeccably maintained by the owners for the past 45 years. We are sorry you did not like the mattress;... More

We were looking for a low-cost hotel, in a good location in SF. We booked hastily, but were delighted with what we found. This was an unusual hotel for us. It's like a collection of private bedrooms, each apparently unique. Colourful bedding and decor. No TV or private washrooms. But the toilets and shower facilities are all maintained very well....

Lovely hotel in a great location - a short walk to Fisherman's Wharf, Lombart Street, Safeway and China Town. We had a vehicle so received discounted parking at the top of the Rd ($20 per day instead of $36).

Thank you for staying with us. The San Remo Hotel was built in 1906 after the earthquake primarily for working men and sailors to help rebuild the city. To maintain our unique personality and set ourselves aside from cookie cutter hotels, we chose not tear down walls and changed its configuration. That is what makes the San Remo an authentic...

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
