My fiance and I stayed at the Hotel Boheme in October 2011 for the Columbus Day weekend. The hotel is in an excellent location. We were walking distance to Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, the Alcatraz tour, and we even walked to the Golden Gate Bridge. Chinatown was a 10 minute walk,Fisherman's Wharf was about 15-20 minutes, the Alcatraz tour was about 30 minutes and the Golden Gate Bridge was about an hour long walk from Boheme. In addition, there are dozens of very good restaurants, pizza places, cafes, and pastry shops within blocks of the hotel. The location was unbeatable. The rooms were small but we didn't spend too much time in the room. There is no elevator and the staircase is small so pack light if you can't carry your suitcse up and down a flight of stairs.
Now for the bad part. If you have a room facing Columbus Avenue, it will sound like a parade is going down the street at night. No joke. You will hear screaming, music, fireworks, animals, you name it. But when you look outside it will look like a busy but normal street. For some reason, the noise filters through the windows and is magnified by 100x in your room. Request a room on the opposite side of Columbus if you are a light sleeper. Other than the noise, I had no complaints.
Tip: Book a shuttle to (not from because they don't offer it) the SFO airport. It is only $8 through the hotel.
Do not get a room facing Columbus Avenue unless you are a super duper heavy sleeper. It is very lou...
