  • Amazing place... You get breath taking views from the bottom of the stairs and as you climb the stairs the view only gets better. At the top, you are rewarded with sweeping views of the Sunset district with a cool fresh air breeze. Walk another block up and walk up another 100+ flight of stairs and the view gets better; you can see part of the golden gate bridge. Be forewarned that the neighbors here are very respectful of their neighborhood so please keep it clean and don't steal the plants! Also this is a tourist attraction so keep your valuables out of sight.
  • Very cool installation. Be prepared to hike if you want to go to the top, it is a haul. I hiked to the tip top of the hill (which is actually over double the tiled steps) carrying a stroller and a 2 year old and, needless to say, I was winded. Well worth the visit though, there is an amazing view from the top (both the top of the steps and the top of the hill).
  • I loved it! I think its a must stop if you visit San Francisco. It was on the way to our hotel... you don't have to stay long and parking was pretty easy... there are signs that say to not leave valuables in the car while you visit the steps.. just an fyi. Lovely pictures! And there is a nice view at the top.. when there isn't fog
  • This stairs are amazing and i love it! When we went there, there is a lot of people and u need to wait until that certain set of stairs to clear out of people for you to get a great photo. But the tiled stairs itself is a great art and it is amazing!
  • 163 steps. Yes, I counted. This hidden treasure is located in a residential area in San Francisco. It does get crowded here with the workout groups and the tourists so just be prepared to dodge the runners and people taking pics. If its not too busy, take the time to appreciate each individual tiled step. Its so creative and if you are into art, you will love it. At the top of the stairs, if its not too foggy, you will catch an amazing view. Definitely worth the climb! Great workout, great photo op, this is a must see in San Francisco!

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
