About this Hotel

Price From $174

'Hood In bustling North Beach, the now-touristy Italian neighborhood where famed Beatniks once hung out. The iconic City Lights bookstore is near the hotel.

The Vibe Black-and-white photos of beatnik-era San Francisco make a fitting welcome to a hotel that taps into the spirit of Kerouac and his crowd. Allen Ginsberg really did sleep here on multiple occasions.

Plus A killer location with your pick of popular restaurants, cafes, and bars.

Free Wi-Fi? Yes.

Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, MC, Visa.

Details Doubles from $174; $194 for the hotel's largest room, which is equipped with two queen beds and can sleep up to four.
