To the Rock!

A travel blog entry by moorsey88


No need for an alarm this morning - I was awake @ about 5 a.m. But that’s not too bad considering the 3 hour time difference from home. This morning we headed to the Rock….the infamous Alcatraz Prison! We hopped on a vintage streetcar and headed to Pier 33 where the ferry boats leave for Alcatraz. It was a beautiful blue sky day, but still glad I was wearing a jacket…it was a wee bit chilly! It’s all about the layers!!

... time we did not forget the Princess bag. We walked out of the terminal and headed to the right … we had walked a fair way when I saw another terminal so we retraced some of our steps so I could check where Tom Bradley terminal was. Turns out we were heading in the right direction afterall.

After some 10 mins walking, we arrived at Tom Bradley. It had changed considerably since we last departed from LAX. I have to say I ...

Returning our beloved camper van

A travel blog entry by marcher1234


Used the remaining pancake mix & attempted to use all the maple syrup (thought about drinking the leftover syrup....but Sam wouldn't let me). Cleaned up our precious van & returned it to Escape Campervans at Fisherman's Wharf. It was bitter-sweet as we had such a good time travelling around the States in that van.....but after 5 weeks we were also a little bit excited to ...

... hike that would take me from Fisherman's Wharf, down along the water to the Golden Gate bridge...over and back again, and down the coastal path all the way to the Sutro Baths. I was lucky in avoiding the crowds to see the sea lions down at pier 39 and had great views of Alcatraz Island, spotted seals swimming below the Golden Gate bridge and avoided being mown down by speed cyclists. My coastal hike nearly landed me in trouble with the law when some skateboarders ...

Farewell America

... the apartment clocks. That also explained why Samuel was up at sparrows **** and why it was so bloody dark at 5.30 last night. And why when I remoted into work last night we were only 21 hours behind instead of 20 hours. So funny!

Headed away about 2.30 just in case we got caught in traffic. Si accidentally took a wrong exit and stopped, backed back slightly to go back onto the freeway. As soon as he did it we saw a cop sitting at the opposite intersection on a ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Boheme San Francisco

    Great location, helpful staff.


    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


    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.


    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!



    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


    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.



    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


    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


    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.



    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


    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.
