The hotel staff was friendly and professional. Check-in and check-out was quick. The biggest plus is the secure parking lot for hotel guests. We moved around by public transport and on foot. Public transport stops are close to the hotel. The rooms were clean. The room was quiet. We were very satisfied with our visit! We wish the entire hotel team success and a beautiful autumn!

Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39 are both just 1 mi from Van Ness Inn. This San Francisco hotel offers free WiFi. Cable TV and free WiFi are included in every room at Van Ness Inn.

The property was alright, room was clean, some dark spot were starting to appear in the bath room, I do believe it is value for money , and not far from the hustle and bustle of Fisherman’s wharf. There is parking but you have to pay for it, but still better than the prices they ask for parking elsewhere. Staff where not overly friendly. Value for money and no frills.

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, has something for everyone. Be careful though – you might just leave your heart here!

    Beautiful city with a lot to experience in terms of history,...

    Beautiful city with a lot to experience in terms of history, culture and food. It can be very, very expensive, so it is recommended to plan carefully if cost is an issue. An an entire day by Fisherman's Wharf to see the sights and hit some of the cooler tourist shopping spots. While you're there head to Museum Mechanique for some classic gaming, and then head out the back to tour a WWII submarine. Don't forget a visit to the legendary Alcatraz - night visits even better. There are a lot of highlights in SF, so take your time, and enjoy as much as you can. Avoid the Tenderloin district. It's not safe for tourists. Don't forget the hills, so be ready for some power walking, or get yourself some wheels, or you'll be a hurting unit at the end of the day!

    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

    I love how Gizele , the front desk was assisteing us. She welcomed us and made sure we got the best room with a nice view. The hotel was near Union Square and Chinatown. It is located in the heart of San Francisco. A lot of restaurants and Starbucks nearby. The staff were awesome. They are very friendly and approachable. They also took care of our luggage when we check out so that we can still tour the city. Our experience is exceptional. Highly recommend. It is also near BART station where you can ride the train to the airport.

    We liked everything about this hotel! It is a gem right in Union Square, very secure (24-hour security at the entrance), and so easy to get around from this location. My only regret is that we didn't have time to enjoy their lounge area. The rooms are really cute! Just one little tip - I might not stay there with someone I'm not 100% open with as you hear literally everything from the bathroom 🙈🙉. It was a great spot for us and would highly recommend.

    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.

    If you're ever in SF the mission area is the best! Union hotel is especially 🔥 It's got security close by because of the dance club next door and it's gated. Check out San Francisco ya'll. My Grandmother was right. It's nice! #travel PS: the "Sandwich Place" across the street has the best fucking sandwiches. Tell him Amos sent you and I bet he'll laugh :) Good people for real! #NextTimeSF #Inspiration #casper

    The staff and the service here is exceptional. The stay here is worth it simply for the service. In room dining is served well and promptly. Everyone is polite and helpful. Room is very comfortable and had everything a tourist needs. Hotel Nikko is a great choice in SF, specially if you want to stay close to downtown. Union square station is walking distance and so are most of the bus lines.

    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.

    Hotel Cornell de France is in an excellent spot in San Francisco located within blocks the business district, the theatre district, China Town, Union Square and shopping. I like to get a little exercise in the morning and there were some nice hills to walk up and down yet good breakfast and lunch restaurants on a flat area right out the door. It's an awesome spot.

    We requested a room with a view of toward the Golden Gate Bridge - and certainly had that! Great view... but somewhat marred by the very dirty windows. Didn't discourage us, though. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The room was a great base for exploring San Francisco and the Bay area. We had great fun, and this hotel was part of that.

    The location was everything. Located in downtown, close by to the mall, movies, restaurants, and union square. The beds were extremely comfy and the room was very spacious. Room comes with an empty refrigerator which is great, unlike other hotels in SF that have items inside for you to purchase, which leaves no space to put items.
