  • Telegraph Hill is in the area by the Embarcadero, North Beach and Russian Hill, but also close to Fisherman's Wharf. It's a mix of residential, light commercial with cool bars, restaurants, coffee hou...  more »
  • After visiting Lombard Street, I walked to the other side to visit the Coit Tower. It turns out that the tower is located on a hill called Telegraph Hill. Despite its name, but not the high mountain slopes, ko. So if we go up to the Hill won't be too tired. From here we could see housing around. To view more OK, better to climb the tower. Here there is any automatic public toilets. Contents clean anyway. But still it smells unpleasant.

  • My title says it all. I used to live here and always enjoy these views. Parking can be a problem during the summer tourist season.  more »

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.
