A cute quirk inn, in a good area. The rooms are small, you need to share showers, and my room didn't have a TV but who really needs one in San Francisco? I was there for 6 nights and was very comfortable. Good coffee and tea is provided in the AM.

My boyfriend and I picked this spot for the price but it was way cooler than I anticipated. Old-timey rooms and decor were cool (very turn-of-the-century grandma-chic), but clean! Made up for the shared bathrooms (which are most always a deal-breaker), but for this place not the case. There were never a ton of people around and the location was...

Thank you for your review. One of the main reasons people travel is to experience something different. Our hotel offers a “new” experience with its authentic décor style and layout. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our hotel and great location. We look forward to serving you again in the future.

Quirky, quaint, and quotidian is to say everything positive. Except for having to walk a steep flight of stairs (there's no elevator), you come into a small lobby that has the reception desk plus an ice water cooler, makings for tea and coffee plus cookies and candies, though by 11:00 P.M. the edibles are completely removed. Along one short central...

Something different, unique experience. Stayed for 5 nights with my friend, we had a great stay. Friendly staff, rooms are really small and kinda rustic, but felt like home. Was a bit concerned about the fact that we didn't have a sink or a bathroom in our room but it was not a problem at all, there were enough bathrooms...

Just back from a nine night stay at the San Remo Hotel and we loved it. I was a bit concerned about the bathrooms and shower situation when I booked the hotel but it turned out great.

Not for everyone. Only has one room that is ensuite and there are One to three staircases to climb. We had the Penthouse which does have the ensuite and three slights of steps.

Thank you very much for your review. We are a historic hotel and work hard to maintain it faithful to the way it was built back in 1906. We are an antidote to the big chain hotels where you will be ensured that nothing remotely interesting happens. The Penthouse offers the chance to feel more like a local in your...

If you are looking for something different, this is it. Stayed three nights and would stay there again. The only issue we had was that our room was beside the vending machines and laundry, with old thin walls,it was noisy at times. Great location.

This location is right in the heart of the Fishermans wharf, Alcatraz, Ghiradelli square area. Everything within 0.5 mile walking distance. All of the rooms are super small, as I'm sure this is noted on the website. You basically open the door and there is the bed. Once you put your suitcase down, there is no room for moving around...

We stayed two nights in this historic building, and from the moment we entered, were enchanted.

Having lived and wandered in Europe for a half dozen years, I adore the San Remo. Small, quiet and convenient. If you need lots of room to feel important than this is not your spot.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
