Hotel & Travel Information – San Francisco
Hotels and Accommodations
Whether you prefer a premium hotel with a view, a cozy bed and breakfast, or hippy style hammocks, San Francisco has it all. You will have hundreds of different accommodations to choose from. We advise you to pick a hotel located near the Consulate General of The Netherlands in the Financial District or Union Square area.
Traveling from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport you can choose between two direct flights to the Bay Area: KLM (www.klm.nl) flight #605 to San Francisco International Airport (SFO); and Arkefly (www.arkefly.com) flight #311 flies into Oakland International Airport (OAK). Both airports are located approximately 12 miles from downtown San Francisco and can be accessed by Bay Area Rapid Trasit (BART). It is advisable to book your travels as soon as possible to secure the lowest airfares.
For public transportation in the city, you can purchase a Clipper Card, which is an all-in-one transit card, comparable to the Dutch OV Chipkaart. The Clipper Card can be customized to fit your transit needs and can be used on both BART and MUNI transit systems (buses and trains). The Clipper card holds a cash value or discounted multiple trips.
