Great location, wonderful hotel for many past stays but NO MORE! No management! Terrible attitude and absolutely no customer service. As I stated to my wife, "This is what happens when there is no management, where incompetence meets arrogance and a total lack of customer...More
What a gem in the heart of SF. At the base of Coit Tower - walk up and take a look then take the 397 steps down Greenwich stairs and you are right at the piers - walk to the Aquarium and Pier 39. The...More

To start with the positive: The Hotel is located nicely at Washington Square, with the piers and other interesting locations within walking distance. It turned out to be super quit, although my room was on street level. The price was more affordable than other in...More
Build in 1910 this is an older but cosy Inn the rooms are each different but they have tried to keep them current with the amenities. Location and quietness are the other positives. The breakfast is minimal but fresh.
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.
