Wonderful location with lot's of ambiance. Friendly and helpful staff. (Hey Stan, we love you!) The real reason I wanted to stay at Boheme was the interesting history of the hotel dating from the beat generation of the 50s. There are large framed museum quality authentic photograph prints throughout the hotel by the famous SF photographer Jerry Stoll. The photos...

A charming hotel situated in the Italian district, well located for exploring San Francisco. Rooms are sufficient without being luxurious and staff are friendly and helpful. Only downside would be having to carry heavy bags up the stairs to our room (no lift), but would recommend Hotel Boheme and go back there when in SF again.

We stayed here for two nights in July and it was a joy, very different to the big modern hotel chains, very easy to find and the staff were just so kind and helpful, the rooms are small and clean but very quirky, especially if staying facing the street as if you wake early you can hear the whole community...

First of all, this hotel is like staying in a living beat writers museum. It's got a great central location in North Beach, and you feel like you are genuinely a part of the beat scene while staying there. The room was decent- the mattress was acceptable, but not much more than that. The bathroom was tiny but did the...

The Boheme is a place you stay when your primary concern is location (and this location is wonderful). North Beach has a European vibe--sidewalk cafes, lively bars, colorful characters on the street, literary history. Exploring the neighborhood is a destination in and of itself, and you are also within walking distance of Chinatown and fisherman's Wharf. You can spend all...

The Hotel Boheme is located right in the heart of North Beach, SF. It is a small, boutique hotel with only an entrance that is viewable from the street. The doorway is located between an italian restaurant and an italian cafe. Once inside the door, you climb a spiral staircase which leads to the lobby of the 15 room hotel....

My partner and I really enjoyed staying downtown in the Hotel Boheme last summer. The room was very cool and the hotel had some privacy- although it had no bath tub, the retro furnishings fit it's vibe. We parked nearby at a local garage and left the car for the weekend. Check out Caffe DeLucci for breakfast esp Bloody Mary's...

Very disappointing. Excellent location, awful rooms. No air conditioning, small room, uncomfortable bed, terrible noise outside until 3 in the morning and you had to keep the windows open. Not even a screen on the window. Dark, dank. Go elsewhere. Thought it would be romantic, but was wrong.

bohemeSanFrancisco, Manager at Hotel Boheme, responded to this review

We recognize that a visit to a hotel is very personal and we can't please everyone although we come very close. If one looks at the history of some reviewers it will show a history of never being really satisfied with a visit anywhere while others are happy wherever they are. We believe that is human nature. We're extremely proud...

User reviews are spot on--listen to them! Great location right in North Beach, walk to everything. We overlooked the street, so of course there is typical city noise, but not as bad as other areas of SF. Staff knew the area extremely well and had great restaurant and night life recommendations--and MANY of them!!! Wish we'd had more time and...

Awesome location, close to everything, and extremely keen staff willing to serve and help you anytime. Although rooms are a bit too small, they are still comfortable enough and quite clean. Perhaps only complaint would be that the rooms facing over Columbus Avenue get a bit noisy late in te nights and early in the morning. Everything else, just fine...

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.
