“Awesome Place”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

This hotel a great place to stay, let me start by saying that Jessie at the front desk was great. He was helpful months ago before when we were trying to decide on a hotel to stay in San Francisco. It was quaint and it felt like a home away from home type of hotel. Great location and responsibly with priced. They had free coffee and muffins in the morning and they held my luggage until I had to leave for the airport. Again, it all starts with the front desk Jessie he was really nice and helpful. I would stay at this hotel again and would recommend it to anyone that's going to visit San Francisco.

Not your everyday hotel experience. Friendly, helpful staff turn an ordinary stay into something charming and special. Short on fancy amenities, but long on value and location, everything is within a short walk - restaurants, shopping, markets (including a Trader Joe's), cable cars, muni bus, and a slightly longer walk to Fisherman's Wharf. If you're a pampered traveller, this isn't the place for you, but if you're adaptable and friendly, this is a delightful experience. Shared bathroom facilities are immaculately clean. Nice family neighborhood, felt very safe and secure. Coffee, tea and several warm beverage mixes in the lobby during business hours, as well as ice water. Free Wi-Fi helps make up for the lack of tv in the rooms, and who uses an in-room phone these days? We'll be back!

Room Tip: Some rooms have an in-room sink that's a nice perk, but it's really not essential. Rooms ove...

This hotel is unique. Bags of character, great location, cosy feel. In fact a home from home in one of the greatest cities in the world. The other major consideration - budget. This has it all, plus free tea and coffee, and muffins in the morning. Tram is a short walk as are some great bars and restaurants, including the Italian one down below the hotel. I recommend this hotel unreservedly, and will not hesitate to book it up again on my next trip to SF.

An amazing little hotel I wish to recommend ! Staff is the best and the rooms clean and perfect. Location is great (Italian district) , minutes to the Fisherman Wharf and Chinatown. It was my first experience in San Francisco California, and I will always remember it !!

We loved the unique character of this boutique hotel. It oozes character and charm. The staff were super friendly and helpful. As a family with two teenagers the family suite consisting of a double room and a connecting door into a room with twin beds was ideal. Made a welcome change from rooms with two Queens .....The rooms are cramped and unfortunately our bed was rock hard. We were also unfortunate to stay on a Monday night with a room which looked out onto the street ( a good feature generally) as the street cleaner made a huge noise just outside at 4.30 a.m......
The shared shower/toilet facilities were fine , not least because they are kept spotlessly clean and fragrant. We also appreciated the provision of washing machines & tumble dryers (washing powder sold in a vending machine) . Pat's café, just round the corner on Taylor street, is a great breakfast venue.
The location is perfect for exploring the City and its entirely possible to do that on foot if you don't mind stretching your legs up the inclines. Cable cars are a fun alternative.

Room Tip: Rooms 2 & 3 are ideal for a family of 4 if the children would prefer twin beds. Staying there ov...

Thank you for your review. We do offer Family Suites that give the family traveling with children or teenagers a little more privacy than the regular two double bed accommodations.

We look forward to serving you again in the future.

San Remo Hotel made my trip to SF a great experience ! Cosy and charming, I felt like home. The staff is friendly and professionnal, always help with a smile ! Perfect for traverlers on the road or for a stay. I've been there for 8 days and I was very happy !
Shared bathrooms ans showers; always clean ! Thin walls; you may want to sleep with earplugs.. People are respectful; happy traverlers like me and looking for a good experience !
The location is perfect ! Near most of the muni-bus or the cable car. Close to the Piers (beautiful view on Golden gate and Alcatraz), walk thru the Lombard street in about 5 min. from the hotel. Columbus avenue and the Washington square are lovely !
Good affordable restaurants nearby and I love the Traders Joe on the corner street (bio-grocery, good products at low prices)
I recommand this hotel without hesitation, ad I will go back !

Room Tip: I had a room with a window on the inside yard; not noisy at all !

A different kind of accommodation! Boutique style, clean and quaint, good price. Very helpful staff and great location. If you don't mind sharing facilities - clean and well maintained, this is a gem of an hotel! Downside - small rooms, no lift.
