      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Boheme San Francisco

      Great location, helpful staff.

      from

      The location cannot be beat. Columbus Avenue is abuzz with activity night and day. Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, Coit Tower, and several great restaurants are within walking distance. Our room faced Columbus Avenue, but we did not notice any noise from the street.

      The hotel is much more charming than the business hotels in Union Square and the staff go out of their way to be helpful. They were able to recommend restaurants, reserve a shuttle to the airport and give us strategies for getting tickets to nearby "Beach Blanket Babylon", which I also recommend highly.

      A diamond in a beautiful city

      from

      This gorgeous little hotel is an absolute gem! I can not think of a single negative - The best location, very comfortable beds, gorgeous decor and ambience, the most charming helpful staff. If you want a faceless, generic hotel there are plenty in the city, but this is a home away from home. If I ever return to San Francisco (and I dearly hope to) I would not think of staying anywhere else.

      My favorite too.

      from

      My husband and I stayed here last summer. We had a room in the back which was very quiet. I'm not sure what people mean when they say things about hippie decor. The pictures on the website give an accurate idea of what the rooms look like. We loved the ecclectic look (kind of a mixture of french,asian and san francisco) Beautiful colors and lighting. The decor was actually some of the most thoughtful I've ever seen in a hotel. Even in a four star hotel. It's true you have to climb some stairs to get to the reception desk but we even thought that added to the charm and european feel. It's the first time I ever went to a hotel and thought "I wonder where they got that or I think I might paint our room this color at home". And as everyone has already said the location is perfect for restaurants and just about everything else. If you don't want too much noise, ask for a room in the back. We could see the tower on telegraph hill from our room. Anyway, we loved it!

      Fabulous!

      from

      An absolutely fantastic boutique hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and the quirky decor consistent with the hotel's bohemian theme. The location is excellent, right in the middle of North Beach with great restaurants and bars right at the doorstep. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay in the Boheme again.

      Needs a little TLC

      from

      My wife and I had stayed in North Beach before and we knew the area. During our last visit we collected brochures from all the local inns and hotels and decided on the Boheme. The location is great. Just steps from good Chinese and Italian food. Lots of place to walk to and Coit Tower is only a few blocks away.

      Two major problems though, the hotel is on the second floor and there is no elevator. We had to schlep our bags up a set of narrow steps to get to the front desk. The second issue was the place apparently has not been redone since the Summer of Love. Thick brocaded bed spreads and accessories was the look. And the odor in the room was such we had to go out and buy some incense to mask the smell. All I needed to complete the look was some love beads.

      The smallness of the room did not bother us; we have stayed in boutique hotels in NYC. And the fact that the room faced the main drag was fine, street noise does not bother me either. If the room smelled better I wouldn't have minded the climb up the stairs. The guys at the front desk were very knowledgeable and friendly. A little sprucing up and I would give the place 4 stars.

      So-so

      from

      The service was excellent...Stan was fabulous and helped us with our plans. The hotel is in a great part of town--close to wonderful resturants. The room wasn't too inspiring (romantically) the bed was awful and the sheets didn't feel or look clean. The bathroom looked completely new and cute and we didn't hear anyone else the whole time we were there.

      Nice Staff - Small Rooms and Poor Circulation

      from

      Very cute hotel but probably will not stay there again. The staff was very helpful and nice however, the small room and lack of proper air circulation was a problem. We were there on a hot day so the lack of air conditioning was really an issue. We had to use a small portable fan, which caused us both to wake up with a sore throat and congestion. The room was very small which also contributed to the heat and stuffiness. Opening the window was a problem at night because of the street noise - it was very loud even with the window closed - several car alarms woke us throughout the night.

      On the plus side the staff was very nice and helpful and the location of the hotel was great - walking distance to excellent restaurants and many of the best sites.

      My favorite hotel

      from

      This is my favorite hotel in the world...okay, maybe with the exception of the Hotel Luna on the Island of Capri in Italy.

      Right in the heart of North Beach, the Hotel Boheme overflows with character and charm and I ADORE the staff.

      You can literally step outside the door of the hotel and into wonderful Italian coffee shops, bakeries and restaurants.

      A fabulous little gem of a place for those who want an interesting and authentic experience in San Francisco.

      Fabulous!

      from

      We picked the Hotel Boheme for the location while on our Honeymoon.

      When we got there the location was great and the Boheme and staff were even better. The staff went to great lengths to make sure we were happy. They offered suggestions for restaurants. We enjoyed our room overlooking the street and the noise, sounds, and smells. We will definitely stay here again.

      An Epic Weekend

      from

      I planned a July 2001 romantic weekend with my ex-husband and the Hotel Boheme was the setting. Bad idea; great hotel. With the proper mate, it is the ideal San Fran love getway destination. The rooms were small yet cozy. The staff was incredibly helpful. It is a great location if you don't mind the street noise. Amazing restaurants nearby as well as being within walking distance from the Wharf, Chinatown, etc.

      Tour Finale

      ... trying to use all the food that we had leftover. I swear if I never see another rice cake again I'll be happy.
      After lunch, Kate took us on a little tour of the city. We drove up to Twin Peaks, a high point where you can see the entire city in all its glory. We then drove down Haight Street, one of the main streets in San Fransisco, and then through Golden Gate Park. San Fransisco is a pretty place with some cool older-style building, but man is it hilly! The angles that ...

I don't think we're making much of a 'hand' of it here either. (Ha ha). Wendy keeps getting compliments about her hair out of the blue. That's my IO Girl! No picture taking today so have just included some shots of the CA coastline. Boarding tomorrow. Not sure about WIFI ship board. Watch this ...

      Nice bridge, but China town needs a clean.

      ... The whole place has fantastic stories, including prison revolts, prison guard murders and attempted breakouts. And it's all very well presented with audio guides and information boards. A very good way to spend the day and definitely one of the highlights of the trip for us. We even had the added bonus of meeting an ex prisoner who was doing a book signing in the gift shop on the way out. All of this was a great ending to our San Francisco adventure. Next stop, Yosemite National ...

      This trip to Seattle was totally unexpected. Although my department has another office in Seattle and many of my colleagues have already travelled from/to Taipei/Seattle for many times, this opportunity just never came to me. Finally...it's my turn after being here for almost 3 years!!!

      Just got informed to go on a business trip to Seattle only 2.5 days ahead. Didn't have much time to get myself prepared ...

      ... pricey areas with big houses, house boats and amazing views. Some of the house boats even had sea planes docked outside. We arrived at the little ferry port having just missed one of the ferries, with an hour and a half until the next one. So I left Jane to set up on the grass (her bum was very sore from the cycling, at least mine is having a break after NYC chaffage) while i headed to find a shop and get something to keep us busy. I returned ...
