We booked the San remo after seeing the great reviews on tripadvisor & struggling to find accommodation at a reasonable price in San Francisco.
On the positive side, it's in a great location, near fishermans wharf. The staff were really friendly & helpful. There were unexpected touches like fresh iced water with lemon available through the day. There are coffee & breakfast places (inc good old starbucks) within minutes. The hotel is lovely, I loved the old fashioned decor & furniture- it really feels like a quirky old fashioned guest house! Everywhere was clean. Showers & toilets clean & working well, fresh towels always available.
On the negative side, the rooms are small - we knew this on booking but with 2 suitcases there was little room for movement! The one real issue I had is that the bed was soft, extremely soft. With 2 people sitting on it, the middle almost touched the floor. I love the quirk of the hotel & the decor is in keeping with its age, but I have no idea how old that mattress was & I think it's reasonable to expect a comfy bed with no backache.
Given the price & location, I think I'd stay at the San remo again. If budget was not an issue, I may stay elsewhere for more space & a comfy bed!
