Historical Traveller Reviews of San Remo Hotel
We loved the San Remofrom zoie
There were people of all ages and nationalities when we stayed, children included. Our stay was quiet.
I loved the decor, so much better than a modern hotel. The San Remo is so charming. Yes it's tiny, the rooms are small, but very cute with the antiques. Very, very clean. The bathrooms are spotless. Loved the bathtub.
It is so close to everything. the cable cars, fishermans wharf, coffee shop, drug store, grocery store and resturants.
the staff was very helpful with any questions, they even let us keep milk in the fridge.
If you have a car, the hotel works with a garage, very close by, parking is $14 for 24 hours.
We liked that you needed a key for the front door to get in, it made us feel very safe. We walked back from Fishermans wharf after dark and felt safe.
While most hotels in this area run over $100 a night, we were quite happy with our little room.
just okfrom WendyJ

Modest but nice: neat, clean, great locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The location is wonderful - just a block or two from the Powell-Mason cable car, right between Lombard Hill and Telegraph Hill, and just a short walk from the wonderful Washington Square and Chinatown, as well as City Lights bookstore. Don't head to the ihop by Fisherman's Warf for breakfast, there are a number of wonderful little cafes around Washington Square. My favorite was the Columbus Cafe just a block or so from the San Remo at the intersection of Columbus and Lombard - a cute, funky little place with a broader menu than some of the other cafes, and big pots of tea for just a couple of bucks.
Clean and cheapfrom londontraveller
Shared shower facilities are fine, very clean and well maintained. My only, very minor complaints would be that I felt they went way overboard with the 'no smoking' signs - every spare scrap of wall was festooned with dire warnings about smoking, which hardly adds to the ambience; and the desk clerk, while perfectly polite, was not really terribly interested in answering my questions about parking, ATMs etc. However, the location to North Beach makes up for this and I'd recommend it to budget travellers used to European pension style accomodation.
Like staying in a museumfrom A TripAdvisor Member

Fantastic!from A TripAdvisor Member
Perfect for my needs, and I loved the quirky individual style, (though I suppose the quirkiness may not be to everyones taste).
Old World charm in a New World setting.from A TripAdvisor Member
P.S: Make sure to try the massage chairs on each floor at the end of a hard day of sightseeing. Absolute bliss!
Top Local Tips for San Francisco
Bike hire in San Francisco During our stay in San Francisco both a highlight and low light was when we hired bikes from Fisherman's wharf. The ride around the harbour and over the golden gate bridge was fantastic and spectacualr - highly recommended. However rather than taknig the option of coming back from Sausalito by ferry, we decided to ride out to the red wood forest and round to Tiburon. The map was very poorly marked (there were several wrong turns and loooooong detours!) and the ride was largely spent on very busy roads and less that scenic paths. It eneded up being a very long and rather boring ride, which dampened the first half of the experience. Definaterly hire bikes and ride across the golden gate bridge, but think twice about the long route on offer.
Alcatraz - a Winner! Definitely visit Alcatraz, but remember to book in advance, especially in Summer. We were lucky and booked as soon as we arrived, but I know people who have missed out, as it can be full days ahead.
Get A Pass! Don't drive! Use BART to get you from the airport to SF - it is too easy and cheap - $5.35 per person one way from the airport to downtown SF. Also purchase a MUNI pass to use the SF public buses and the cable cars as much as you want! I bought the 7 day pass for $24 + tax. What a bargain. A cable car ride one-way will cost you $5 alone!
