Friendly BnB Close to Union Square

4.8 on July 30, 2014

This beautiful BnB is close to cable cars, restaurants and Union Square. The staff were above and beyond friendly and helpful with luggage assistance, advice on getting around and where to go and what we should see. Breakfast was served each morning and provided a great opportunity to talk to other guests. Next door is a laundromat which was really convenient. I would highly recommend this place to anyone travelling to San Fran. The only suggestion I can make would be to include a bar fridge in the rooms; just for convenience.

Friendly, comfortable hotel

I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights and would definitely go back. Whilst there a large proportion of guests were repeat customers. Staff were so friendly helpful and made everyone so welcome. The hotel had a family feel about it and the resident cat added to the experience. Afternoon gatherings over tea, coffee and biscuits encouraged guests to share experiences with each other which was a refreshing change. wONDERFUL!

Lovely cosy B+B in the middle of Nob Hill

Loved our stay here in this quaint, cosy and friendly bed and breakfast. The staff were really helpful, the rooms were very comfortable and Pip the reception cat is extremely dedicated to his duties! The lovely old building has been beautifully maintained and the antique elevator is a novelty. The breakfast and afternoon cookies were a real treat. Highly recommended!

I love Golden Gate Hotel. It is a lovely and wonderful B&B. The bed is really comfortable. It shows consideration for everything. The breakfast is the best whatever I had in B&B. I would like come back each time I visit San Francisco.

We found the Information about this B&B in the Lonley Planet. It got a good review there so we descided to go for it. We really loved the stay there because the place was unique, clean & quiet. It almost felt like you are visiting friends. All the staff were very friendly & helpful. And the croissants for breakfast are redicolously yum!

Great location, super service

I loved Golden Gate Hotel. The staff is truly interested in each guest's comfort. The only suggestion is to include fruit at breakfast.
