My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer, The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was beautiful with an enormous very comfortable bed and good quality furniture. There was a tv in our room, and access to wifi. Only amenity lacking was coffee making facility in the room. The bathroom... More

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay here at the this lovely Victorian B&B. The location was central to many of the neighborhoods that we wanted to see including China Town, Union Square, Financial District, Russian and Nob Hill, North Beach...all within walking distance.

Excellent B&B right near everything you would want to do. Just like in real estate, location is important to a hotel. This is not the Mandarin or the Omni. It is a quaint bed and breakfast where you are known by name, greeted by friendly staff and guests and get to have a little animal time if you so desire.... More

We just spent five nights at the Golden Gate Hotel and absolutely loved it. The staff is very friendly and informative, the rooms are charming and have comfortable beds, and the location was excellent. However, the highlight of our stay at the GG was being welcomed by Pip the cat at the end of a long day of sightseeing and... More

Very cute little B&B right in the middle of the city. The location was amazing, just a few minutes walk to Union Square & Chinatown, and the staff were very friendly. Computer in the lobby with free internet. Breakfast was a bit basic, just coffee and croissants, but lots of other options in the area. Great price for downtown San... More

The room was quite nicely decorated but the bed was small, the wardrobe was in a poor state, the shower was really antique and the breakfast basic (no tea or coffee in the room). On the top of this the breakfast room is tiny and you feel you have to move out quickly for other guests. On the positive side,... More

Wife and I stayed at the Golden Gate Hotel for a long weekend back in June. Close to Union Square and a 5 minute walk to the Powell street Muni and Bart station. I'd prefer not to stay in the Union Square area, but the hotels are plentiful and the prices, pretty good. The Golden Gate provides a simple continental... More

Beautiful B&B and the staff is awesome! The best coffee I've ever had, and the croissants are to die for, made fresh every morning. The beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept on in a hotel, with down comforters and feather pillows. Unbelievable value for your money.
