A quirky hotel with unusual decor. The room was comfortable but had limited tea and coffee making facilities. Coffee was available on the 9th floor between 7&10 am. Tea and sherry (odd combination!) were available in the reception area between 4 &6pm. There is an amazing cafe next door for breakfast - lots of variety - very good standard and... More

The location is great. Bike rental place is just around the corner, all the shops are within few min, same with restaurants and coffee shops. Walk through China town to pier 39 and fisherman wharf. Not a,short walk but nice. We walked to mission district too but I wasn't one of those great walks. Morotons steakhouse next door- it's excellent.... More

Rooms are small but sweet. Beds are definitely comfy. No gym & the gym that is available is a few blocks away and Horrible - a closet with... More

We had a nice room, clean and tidy. The room was one of the smaller ones but suited our needs. Right by Union Square so a great location for everything. Friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed our stay.

We picked this from a short list provided by the SF operator/air line. A great choice for location, staff and definitely elegant style. Unfortunately old style elegance doesn't allow for all modern facilities in the rooms , e.g. fridge, AC etc. Great bed and hot shower tho. Would stay here again.

We stayed here for 5 nights, the hotel is nice, very small rooms,it has charm and character. Bed was comfortable & clean. Great Location, close to BART station, & just off Union Square. I would stay here again, just for the location. Maybe needs to improve room Service dining, as there is any after 9pm.

Located next to Union Square and steps away from the trolley. The hotel does a great job of creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. They have coffee and tea available in the mornings, and sherry available in the afternoons (all complimentary and self-serve). A pianist performs in the lobby every day in the late afternoons. The rooms are nice with... More

Our family recently stayed at the Kensington Park Hotel for 3 nights. The location of the hotel is excellent being only 1 block from Union Square, shopping and various restaurants. We stayed in a room with 2 double beds, although the room is a little small the accommodations are quite comfortable and very quaint. Quality over quantity. There is no... More

I've stayed here twice, one year apart, each time for about three nights. I love the location, steps from great shopping, movies, public transport, some good restaurants. They do not serve breakfast but there are two wonderful diners around the corner. The rooms are nicely appointed, beds and bedding clean, comfortable and contemporary, bathroom good size, a little ragged around... More

We have recently stayed in San Francisco for 3 nights in the kensington psrk. Accommodation was really good. Bed very comfortable, bathrooms s bit dated, but charming at the same time. the hotel is a few yards from union square and the trolley exchange. Would recommend.
