“The heart of North Beach”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

Great spot, walking distance to everything. Had a room facing Columbus, nice to see the bustling street below. Yes, a little loud especially on a Saturday night, but you are in San Francisco. If you want silence, go to the country.

Experience North Beach live at the Hotel Boheme. Location is everything. Great coffee shops, cafes, restaurants. The night life of Broadway 2 block away. Chinatown only 3 blocks. About 20 minutes and we were at the top of Coit Tower. Cable car stop a few block away up the hill. 2 parking lots within 2 blocks on same block at the police station. ($28 a day.) It's a 1950's hotel, so be prepared to carry your bags up 2 flights of stairs. The rooms are small and in the 50's style with wrought iron bed stands and high ceilings. Mattresses are comfortable but not plush. Small TV on night stand. Our room had a little sitting area looking out on Columbus Avenue. Be prepared for the sounds of the city with buses, garbage trucks, fire engines going by. Night life was fantastic with great cafes and people watching. You get old fashioned metal keys to both the front door and your room.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms save you a flight of stairs with your bags.

If you want the standard brand hotel, do not go there. No elevator, no breakfast, But you are downtown San Francisco with beautifully decorated rooms, beautifl pictures. a nice bathroom. Of course not much view and not cheap. But a grea place.

In a fantastic location, this hotel is a beauty. We asked for a quiet room and got just that. The hotel is located on a busy road so make sure, if you have issues with road noise, that you request a room away from the street. There is no view with one of these rooms but who needs one when there is so much to explore from right outside the front door. The room was extremely clean and the staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful.

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.

Room Tip: Do not get a room facing Columbus Avenue unless you are a super duper heavy sleeper. It is very lou...
