The hotel seems to be a semi-permanent home to some of its guests. Our room was clean, but the shared bathroom was not. The air in the room was stuffy, we opened the windows but the streets were very loud. However, the hotel is in a great location.

I travelled alone to San Francisco and stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. First off the location is excellent. Right on the edge of Chinatown, within short walking distance of everything in the centre of San Francisco. Fisherman's Wharf about 15 minutes away, downtown about 10 minutes away. I got a single bed room on the first floor. The...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights. To be honest, for the price it is ok because it is located in China town at the heart of San Francisco but the room itself had terrible smelling and sheets were dirty. Sink is inside the room which is somehow good point due to the bathroom is outside and it...

We were in San Francisco for the weekend and wanted something cheap and we'll located. The Hotel North Beach ticked those boxes. Located on the outskirts of China Town there are plenty of cafes and eateries nearby and some good nightlife only a short walk away. One of the oldest bars in the city (the Saloon) is only 3 Min...

A computer with internet was in lobby for guest use as well. Very good location in North Beach neighborhood by shops, restaurants and Chinatown. A good value for a very...

Very friendly staff, excellent service! We had an excellent experience here and will definitely come back here to stay. The location is great, too. It is in the center of the city, close to the Chinese and Italian quarters, and to the Fisherman's Wharf.

The hotel is cheap comparet with the prices in San Francisco, but is what you pay for. The hotel inside smells bad and is old. The location of the hotel is very good close to the pier and is in a safety area. It was ok, but I will never come back.

You get what you see in their advertisement. As per SFO standards, it’s cheap, but if you compare with the rest of the US locations, you feel $100 - $130, its expensive. We stayed here for a night and used the room only for sleeping at night. Room was cramped but clean, mattress was OK. You have to use shared...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighbourhood.
