We LOVED our stay and will definitely return should we be lucky enough to go to San Fran again. On our arrival we arrived early and they happily let us check in early (which was great as we had flown from Australia) and showed us up to our room. It was cozy and spotlessly clean with everything you need -...

We chose this hotel for a 4 night stay at the beginning of our honeymoon. Great location just of Union Square. Room comfy though a little on the small side. Great atmosphere at breakfast, we met loads of interesting people, many from nearby, returning customers who use the place as their city base who gave us great advise as to...

This hotel is perfect for exploring San Francisco. To start with the location is perfect and within easy walking distance of all the central sights and to transport links to those further afield. Everyone was very friendly and helpful - great service, they clearly really enjoy showing their city off to visitors. The room was very comfortable, I had one...

I had friends visiting San Francisco and they invited me to come visit them for the weekend. They were staying at the Mark Hopkins, but I was looking for a place near them that would offer a comfortable, personable atmosphere for a small amount of money. In San Francisco, that's no easy feat, but the Golden Gate delivered. It was...

This is my first time at the Golden Gate, and if you're looking for a charming B&B with a European feeling, I highly recommend it. The room is not large, but big enough, with a wooden armoire and dresser and a nice painting on the wall. The bed is comfortable, and the bathroom, while on the small size, clean and...

During our Honeymoon trip myself and my wife decided to arrive in San Francisco a day earlier than planned. Unable to get an extra day with our existing booking we looked around and found the Golden Gate Hotel at a good price. Walking in the door, I would have thought we had stumbled into somebodies house if not for the...

I'm so glad we chose the Golden Gate rather than a generic chain hotel for our San Francisco stay. The hotel staff (and pets) were most welcoming! At one point it did seem strange to get back to the hotel after night out on the town and have a golden retriever follow me back to our room :) location was...

This place is fantastic! Granted, we had just come from the generic expanse of hotels that is Las Vegas but still this place is fantastic. We were overwhlemed with helpful and caring staff from the moment our taxi pulled up outside. Nothing was too much of a hassle. The big drawcard for us (manic animal lovers) was of course Pip...

I loved this hotel. As a single female travelling it was a great relief to find such a welcoming, safe, centrally located and comfortable hotel that I could afford.

The Golden Gate Hotel B&B on bush St. is just off Powell St. in downtown San Francisco. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. The breakfast is tasty but minimal......juice, croissant, hot beverage. They do have afternoon tea and cookies which is a nice refresher after sightseeing all day. We enjoyed comparing travel experiences with other travelers.... many from outside...
