FAQs about hotels in San Francisco

An Icon of Liberalism

Home to one of America’s icons – the Golden Gate Bridge – San Francisco is a liberal city where life is very much for the living.

Surrounded by water on 3 sides, the city's spread over steep hills that make for great photo ops. And none better than the zig-zag Lombard Street, seen in many a film. Even more famous are San Fran's iconic trolleys climbing the hills – a little touristy, but still worth a ride.

In the middle of the bay, Alcatraz island is known for the notorious criminals once imprisoned there. Even if you don’t go inside, the views of the bridge and city are unparalleled.

Nowhere is life in San Francisco more laid-back than on the Pacific beaches. Rent a bike and head out there, passing through the huge Golden Gate Park, before returning to sample some fresh seafood at Fisherman’s Wharf. Don't miss the clam chowder served in bread bowls! Chinatown also has a great selection of mid-range restaurants.

As you fly into San Francisco Airport, look out for the exclusive homes lining the Bay Area. Whether you want a more independent stay in apartments, luxury San Francisco hotels or cheap hostels, Booking.com has something for everyone. Be careful though – you might just leave your heart here!

    Amazing food everywhere we went.

    Amazing food everywhere we went. Try Piccolo Forno in North Beach, it is incredible, and the atmosphere is old school and fun. And make sure you get an Irish coffee at The Buena Vista...totally worth the legendary status!

    San Francisco is still a gem of Northern California.

    San Francisco is still a gem of Northern California. We found it just as lovely as ever; the only changes were so many signs in car windows claiming "doors unlocked, nothing inside, please don't break windows." Also our Uber drivers have their windows down and warned us to place our purses on the floor by our feet. China Town is the CLEANEST part of town with the BEST food experiences, while Little Italy still has outstanding dinners and desserts. Bars were unexpectedly uncrowded on a Friday & Saturday night -- prices still too high for "crafted" cocktails but they were delicious. Visit the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory for authentic fortune cookies -- claim is it's one of the two original fortune cookie factories in the world (There is a dispute as to which one opened first; I'm not taking sides) -- Watch these talented cookie creatures do their thing -- you can even make a personalized fortune cookie! Had tea at the Fairmont -- strongly recommend if you enjoy old-fashioned adventures with hat and gloves (I do) -- always start with a French 75 or Mimosa in the restaurant bar beforehand ... Mona Lisa in Little Italy -- now has a second location across the street where they have an actual bar, not just wine service!! Deliciously decadent and so worth it! All in all, San Francisco -- visit while you can, I don't know how long we will continue to spend a weekend in this historical city that has tarnished so much over the past few years.

    Nice place to visit once, maybe twice....

    Nice place to visit once, maybe twice.... Three times is too much.... Ghirardelli square is nice but overated... Their chocolates and ice cram are good, but not the best ones (even in San Francisco and in walking distance from them you find better ice cream...). Alcatraz and Golden Gate is a must see and Fisherman's Wharf / Pier 39 is a good place to walk and eat at decent price. If you have the opportunity, go see a basketball / baseball / football game. There are some interesting neighborhoods to see, but not mandatory.... Napa Valley is much more interesting and has more nature spots to see and visit....

    It's a world class city because of its location and setting as well as it's rich cultural heritage. Despite it having challenges in terms of high housing costs and many people living in the streets, the city is worth visiting.

    A beautiful city that is no longer safe for tourists.

    A beautiful city that is no longer safe for tourists. Crime is out of control, the bums are on every corner alley and Main Street. The Wharf are was a disgrace at 8am. Sleeping and deficating in the hallways and on the sidewalks that other humans have to use to enter the restaurants and shops. The authorities have blinders on, and there is no police action

    We walked most places we went because the hotel is located so close to the Fisherman's Wharf area. We used the 'Hop On-Hop Off' bus, which was a good alternative to taking a cab to places farther away. I would not have wanted to be driving a rental around the city-too big and busy for someone who doesn't know the city. We ate breakfast at the hotel's fabulous breakfast buffet, then got lunch or dinner at the Wharf area-lots of choices.

    Hotel Nikko is conveniently located near Union Square, making it an easy place from which to launch sightseeing, shopping and dining excursions. We loved the sumptuous bedding and elegant bath accessories. We also loved the thoughtfulness in providing half and half in their minibar for early morning or late night cups of coffee from the Keurig machine. But best of all were the staff at this hotel. Time and time again, we were treated with extra mile service, warmth and good natured kindness. Wow! We will gladly return.

    The location was really excellent. It was right at the heart of San Francisco's downtown area. The hotel was literally just a few steps away from the historic cable car station, the Union Square as well as those well renowned American shopping malls (Macy's, Westfield, Bloomingdales & Target). The room was big enough and was really clean. I don't need airconditioning for I was there during the cold spring season.

    I found this place in a travel blog written by SF locals, and I’m so glad I did. As a single female, I felt safe in the area and in the hotel, which was one of my main criteria. The hotel was charming, and the staff incredibly friendly. They offered a complimentary wine and cheese in the evening and then breakfast in a cute lounge with fireplaces. It was east walking distance to explore Union Square and China town.

    Received free upgrade to an excellent room facing the city with balcony - sound during night wasn't too bad, and during day also sufficiently dampened by glass. Located right off Union Square, easy access to different modes of transportation (e.g., bus/metro/cable car). Just above Tenderloin district (an area which you should avoid), but not noticeable in streets around hotel.
