Certificate of Excellence
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.

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.

Stayed here for 5 nights for our honeymoon from Scotland. Room is small but it’s fine. Shared toilets/showers I was worried about but they were clean and you never saw anyone using them. The shared showers you walk in a small room and lock the door then the shower is in a next

I fell in love with this hotel the second I walked in! The check-in staff were very nice and gave us advice on location, breakfast places where to rent bikes, etc. The hotel is historic and so unique I loved all the plants growing throughout the hotel and all the historic decor.

This hotel is in a great location if you would like to to walk to the piers and Lombard Street. Parking wasn't available on site but you are able to park at the nearby north point center (1 minute drive from hotel). You can get a discounted rate of $20 for 24 hours if you get

Thank you so much for such an incredible review. We are delighted to hear that you found our hotel to be excellent that you liked our staff and location. It is great to hear that you found the shared bathrooms always available and very clean. Fodor's Guide featured us in the past as:" 10 Stylish Hotel for under $150 a night; a refreshingly affordable gem in pricey San Francisco." Thank you for mentioning that we have the right proportion between price and comfort. The restaurant downstairs is The Fior d'Italia is America's oldest Italian restaurant, and they are downstairs. We will be waiting for your return.
