For the price, we really can’t complain about this hotel. It is in a perfect location within the Italian district and walking distance to fisherman’s warf.
The hotel is quaint, if a little tired in parts. Rooms are not big however beds were very comfortable...More
We have stayed here numerous times over the past 25+ years - it is comfortable and is in a great location, even if the breakfast ordering process is rather over engineered!
However, on our most recent visit in August, we were surprised by the surly...More
This is a great place to stay. The location is excellent and the rooms are lovely. We enjoyed our breakfast. Unfortunately the staff are uninterested and not very friendly, such a shame for a otherwise delightful place to stay. While the staff will help if...More

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 neighbourhood 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 neighbourhoods 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 neighbourhood home.
