Lucky find

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 16, 2005

Found this by chance on the web. We expected something basic and it's certainly not in the luxury class, but nor does it pretend to be, but we were unprepared for the charm of this hotel. The bathrooms are shared but there are plenty of them and they were all very clean. The room was small but again spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable.
The corridors were full of plants and the whole was clearly well cared for.

Unique Quality: The staff were unfailingly helpful and would give advice on parking, sightseeing, where to eat breakfast and many other useful facts.

We certainly intend to stay here again.

Every now and then you find a hotel which is an experience in itself - this, in the best way, was one of them. And if you are on a limited budget, give it a try.

Great value in the heart of North Beach

Only in San Francisco for 2 nights, and my travel guide recommended this place. $50 a night is pretty good value. Great location. Shared bathroom was an experience! Don't really know what the protocol is there - is okay to walk down the hall in your pyjamas?

If you ever stay here have a look at the blown up tourist map they have on the wall, marks out all the favourites, and some great "off the beaten" track locations.

I THOUGHT WE WERE IN SAN FRANCISCO

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 31, 2005

i had a very pleasant experience with the san remo in north beach. i found it to be really homey and just had an overall great feeling about the place.

the rooms are very simple. no bathrooms, no telephones, no televisions. sounds boring doenst it. it really wasnt that bad. i wouldnt want a hotel like that every night, but it was a good break from the norm.

for more pictures and info about the hotel. visit their website san remo hotel. here u will find all the information u need.

Unique Quality: i found the bathrooms to be the most unique quality of the hotel. there were bathrooms on every floor that u shared with everyone. they were very clean though and i had no problem with having to wait for showers or waiting to use the toilet.

the decor was also pretty cool. there were plants everywhere with vines running along the ceiling. the atmosphere was just excellent.

if u want a different hotel, that is very cheap, and in a great location. then i highly recommend the san remo.

please feel free to rate this tip, or any of my other tips. i am always looking to improve them. thank u

Directions: its located about 5 blocks from pier 39 on mason street. mason itersects with the famous lombard street. for the best directions. visit their website and directions page san remo hotel directions

Inexpensive in a good location

The San Remo Hotel is located a few blocks away from Fisherman's Wharf. It is set in a charming old building. Be advised that the rooms do not have private bathrooms. However, the bathrooms down the hall are kept in excellent condition. We nver had a problem with them. This is a good comfortable hotel with great value if you do not feel like spending a lot of money. Many interesting places are within walking distance of here.

Unique Quality: Popular with travellers worldwide.

Not a bad place to stay.

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 25, 2004

This is an interesting hotel. It used to be a boarding house for Italian workmen. Now it's a low budget "bathroom down the hall" kind of place. It's on a quiet street a couple of blocks from the main drag (Columbus). The two block walk down Mason to the hotel from Columbus can be a little spooky late at night.

The 30 bus runs down Columbus. The Mason street cable car line is accessible a few blocks away.

While the San Remo is an interesting place, and has clean bathrooms and is pretty well maintained, it has little in the way of public space, offers no breakfast, and is more expensive than other similar offerings.

Directions: Take the 30 Stockton bus from downtown. Get off at Mason. Walk two blocks to the hotel.

I stayed in the San Remo Hotel for a couple of days, and I enjoyed that very much. It's not a luxery place, but it is fun. The hotel is located in North Beach, not far from Fishermans Wharf. The hotel was built in 1906 and it still has an atmosphere of long-ago charm with specially selected antique furnishings. The walls of the hotel are filled with a collection of memorabilia. There are no room telephones, no televisions, and shared baths. The staff is very friendly and the price for the rooms is relatively low (For San Francisco standards), so not a bad choice if you are looking for something different than an ordinary hotel room.
