This is my favorite place to stay in San Francisco— warm and welcoming and comfortable after a busy day in the city. Complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres are offered in the evening, and we found interesting guests to visit with every night. The staff is very helpful, and the expanded continental breakfast is both delicious and beautifully served. The inn...

This is a beautiful hotel, but unfortunately we were given a room on the second floor facing the street. Unbeknownst to us, there was a festival on the square that weekend. The set-up crews worked late into the night on Friday and started again at 5 a.m. Saturday. There is absolutely no soundproofing; our bed might as well have been...

It’s unfortunate that you did not say a word to us that you had a problem with noise; we might have been able to move you to another room toward the back of the building. I think the event you are referring to is the Columbus Day parade, held here every year in October. This is the biggest event of...

The location of this charming B&B is fabulous within walking distance of the Italian neighbourhood and Chinatown and overlooks the park. It is also within easy reach of downtown with a number of public transport options. The main shared living space is very attractive and inviting, however, our room was on the small side but quite charming. Breakfast was fresh...

We stayed at the Washington Square Inn because of its location and its membership in the Select Registry. It did not live up to the Select Registry standard. The location was good for our needs.

We are sorry that the room you chose was not large enough for you, we have many larger rooms that might have been more preferable to you, and we list the room diminsions on our website when you click on room details. Unfortunately light bulbs do fail occasionally and we have someone around 24/7 that can assist you. Your comments...

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
