362 mil... Men nu är vi tillbaka i San Francisco.
Tanken var att lämna tillbaka hojarna i lördags men de hann stänga innan vi kom fram. Så det blev en tur till hotellet och ha dom i garage en natt. De sista nätterna hamnade vi i japantown mitt i San Francisco. Men nu till slutet av resan...

Sista morgonen på motellet började med lite …

24 Hours in SFO

A travel blog entry by josiejojo


After missing our flight out of Vegas we were given seats on the next available one, which wasn´t for another 5 hours. Ronnie and I were going to together and meeting Rosie and Andy later as they were on different airlines. So now we had only 24 hours in San Fran instead of 2 days. We were knackered from Vegas, we desperately needed sleep, so as …

San Francisco, you have to love her. Sweet & Sour.

... condition. They are so photogenic. We walked past a million during the transport strike. Golden Gate Park and The Panhandle are beautifully planted, public spaces with massive ancient trees and themed gardens. The Botanic Garden is a joy but we decided to give the Natural History Museum a miss at $70. South Kensington, many times bigger is free! Rule Britannia. Ten hours on foot gave us a good chance to see the population at large. It has been difficult ...

White water rafting

A travel blog entry by mat_hill88


... groups and make our way down to the boats. We got the lead guide and a small group which meant we would have to work a lot harder. Sitting in the boat we do some further padel instructions being slightly excited I got told to slow down a bit as everyone has to be in sink. I blame them for all being slow and lazy. We hit straight into class 3 rapids and get a taste of what the day is going to be like. Rapid after rapid the thrill of the white ...

Saint Francis the crackhead

A travel blog entry by benandmartin


... half the entertainment in the city and I'd advocate 'crackhead watching' being the number one recommendation of things to do in San Francisco on Tripadvisor. They walk around arguing with themselves, banging their heads on lampposts and selling random items of clothing on the sidewalk... which is why we decided to spend a good hour and a half in the laundromat watching over our vulnerable ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Tomo, A Joie De Vivre Hotel San Francisco

    Enoyed the tomo


    Statyed at the Hotel Tomo 17-20 Aug 2007. Hotel was exactly as described on it's web site. Room and bathroom was spotless! King size bed comfortable and flat screen tv was a nice touch. Location in Japantown was quiet and with a bus stop right across the street everything was readily accessible. Only problem was on the second night there was no hot water, we notified the front desk and it was fixed by the next morning. Would defintely stay again and would recommend this to others.

    Loved the Tomo


    I don't usually take the time to write hotel reviews, but I wanted to share my recent experience at the Hotel Tomo. My wife, myself and our 2 year old daughter stayed at the Tomo for 2 nights in August, and we thought the service was very thoughtful and that our entire hotel experience was extremely fun and different from other hotels. The staff went out of their way to make us feel like welcome, including giving us a variety of helpful restaurant recommendations. Also, the rooms were cool, funky, and fun. I would recommend this hotel highly.

    Where's the manager?


    I am easygoing and helpful by nature and was happy until the second day when the shortcomings began to wear on me. Thus this list: What I would do if I managed the Hotel Tomo?

    Hotel Tomo was a good value


    Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. Rooms were newly renovated, clean, and nice size. Hotel staff was very helpful. Parking was not the most convenient as the garage is small and does not have enough have to park as a satellite lot a few blocks away....just park there early. The Mums restaurant in the hotel has good Shabu Shabu, but don't bother going there for breakfast

    Ok hotel but bad parking


    We just returned from a 2 night stay at this hotel. I chose this hotel for it's location and parking. We, two sisters, were attending a concert both nights and would be returning late in the evening. In all the ads for the hotel it says on site parking. When we arrived we were able to park in the underground lot, no problem. But, upon our return that evening the parking lot was blocked. I had to double park, run inside and ask what was up, they said the on site parking was very small so you had to go to another lot 2 blocks away! And I must add, the desk clerk was very rude about the whole thing. We did not appreciate having to walk through unfamiliar territory at 11 pm at night! It was not a comfortable situation. They have very lax security.

    A Fantastic Discovery


    We just spent 5 days in San Francisco, at the Best Western Hotel Tomo, and were extremely pleased with all aspects of our stay. Situated right at the edge of Japantown, which afforded an abundance of dining and shopping opportunities.

    Really cool hotel


    We stayed one night in this hotel because of its location near UCSF. We were happily surprised by the size of the room, by the friendliness of the staff, by everything! It was great. It's located right near Japantown - you might need a car or take public transportation to go places. Buses run great in SF. I would highly recommend this hotel! I would recommend this hotel to friends/family who need to stay in the city. Great find! Great deal!

    J-pop gem in lower pacific heights/ japantown.


    whatever you thought you knew about this hotel has all changed within the last few weeks. previously known as the miyako inn the hotel tomo is about as hip & cool a hotel you'll find in san francisco. first of all the neighborhood is clean & safe, void of all the panhandlers that seems permiate union square & the tourist trappings of fisherman's wharf. the restaurants in the area are great, r e a l japanese food in japantown & many other fine places to dine & shop at on fillmore street. now the transformation of the hotel is the true highlight. japanese pop-culture is the theme and it is tastefully stated in both the lobby and hotel rooms. the furniture is fun, funky & cheerful but the anime type wallpaper is quite the focal point (WOW). flat screen tv, ipod stereo, wi-fi are also a nice touches and most of all the price is about a third of what you'd pay for downtown. after enjoying a wonderful & very quiet stay here in may 2007 ( while repairs were made in my apartment ) i don't mind spreading the good word to tourists and the like. i might not have a need to stay at a hotel in san francisco anytime soon but i finally found somewhere for my friends & family to stay at when visiting me. i know they'll be more than comfortable at the hotel tomo.
