“Great B+B with central location and warm hospitality”
Reviewed 7 December 2005

We stayed at this hotel around Thanksgiving time and enjoyed it immensely. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the location is perfect - right near Union Square, Chinatown and only a short walk to North Beach and the Ferry Building. The rooms are well decorated and cozy. If you have a car, there is also convenient parking across the street. Highly recommended, especially for those who appreciate Victorian buildings and personal charm.

My partner and I stayed at The Golden Gate in October as part of a tour of California and we loved it. Our room was small but that's what you expect with B&B accommodation (well, if you're from the UK you do!!). The croissants and juice were a great start to the day and it was great to chat to other residents over breakfast and pick up tips. The location is excellent and convenient for visiting the sights. The owners/staff were friendly and very helpful. I would certainly stay here again when visiting SF.

Superb location -- easy walk to many of the sights and to public transportation to many others. Great recommendations from staff about restaurants. We found the Edwardian look and feel of the place very charming. Lots of interesting breakfast conversation because of international clientele. The parking garage across the street conveniently has a rental car office. Reasonable price for the location.

No amenities, but for folks who like B and B accomodations and a central location, it is very acceptable. The owners are very pleasant, Nemo the cat only snarled at me once, and the tea is made with boiling water. Very satisfactory for the low-needs crowd. The location is great, only a few blocks off of Union Square and the BART/Cable car/Muni lines. Given the choice of an equal property, I would go back here as staying here is easy as pie.

Without a doubt the best deal in SF today.

Comfortable, spacious and characterful rooms.

Knowlegeable, approachable and personable staff.

Great location.

The only problem is the number of rooms available - so don't tell anyone else about it
