We stayed at the San Remo for 5 days in september 2006.
For the positive points, we enjoyed being up in North Beach, with quick acces to Fishermans wharf. The F trolley line, over on Beach street ( a few minutes away), got us around downtown. Cable car station is also a block or so away.
Many beautiful Italian restaurants nearby . Theres also a Safeway up the street, and Trader Joes.
The hotel was beautiful and it was a treat to roam around and browse in. We shared the toilets and showers, and found them to be cean.
Our room was also clean, and was visted daily for housekeeping.
On the negative side, We most regretted the welcome. We saw at least 4 or 5 different employees at the front desk. They were professional, but without much warmth or even
a friendly word..Even a " Hello" or " Good Night " from us in passing gave little or no reponse. For a first visit to San Francisco, it would have been nice to see a smile .
Then the basic room w/o a sink is tiny.There's a small window, that opened only halfway for air; we had to keep the ceiling fan going. It was tricky to store some of our gear, in the small quarters.
I also note that the walls are thin. Noise comes throughtoo easily.
To sum it up, beautiful place, wonderful location. But, the welcome wagon needs to be worked on!
