PerfectWe have just returned from a 5 day stay here. We cannot fault the hotel. The room was a good size, clean and well kept. The staff were attentive and helpful. The hotel was well located and beautiful. All of this certainly helped make the visit to SF a memorable one.

      Good value for the locationWe stayed at the San Remo due to it's value and proximity to Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39 and Pier 33. The hotel has plenty of character and, as long as you are prepared to forego the ensuite, this place is the perfect resting spot for travellers on the go or on the move. Plenty of restaurants, bakeries ...

          Nice hotel and great barman!!Stayed in Hotel Majestic and it was a really nice stay. The hotel has the old fashioned San Fran style. We weren’t happy with our first room so we were swiftly moved as soon as a new room was available and then we were very happy. What made our experience even better was the bar man Amit, this gentleman ...

            really quirky Wasn’t sure what to expect at the Queen Anne but we weren’t disappointed. Each room is individually designed, lots of character in a Victorian style.
