We were there for 2 nites & it was awesome. Very, very close to everything, hotel staff were all very nice & accomodating. There is no a/c, which is what we worried abt in July, but it was totally not needed. But July in SanFran vs July in NC, where we come from, is totally different. Beautiful, vintage style room....

I recently stayed at the Kensington Park Hotel for one night. It's right off Union Square and in the middle of some great shopping. The Wi-Fi was free and easy to use. The hotel was clean and they even had nice bathrobes! It's a short walk down to Market Street with easy access to Bart, Muni and the cable cars.... More

What a great Boutique hotel in the Heart of the union square. We were in a corner king room in the top floor and had views looking right at Union Square and Nob Hill. The staff was ultra friendly. Our room was spacious with a very comfortable bed. Piano and guitar in the afternoon while Sherry and Tea was served... More

Great Central location in an old fashioned boutique hotel. Really old world charm and it was the exact opposite to staying at a large corporate chain hotel. Staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for them. The free wifi was great and worked every time without a hitch. Free coffee every morning was good and only a stones... More

We stayed here for the first night of our honeymoon to California. I would sum this up as a traditional American City hotel. The location is good (more for shopping at Union square than tourist attractions at fisherman's wharf), decor is dated, service great, not enough lifts/elevators and the rooms are small. We had 2 suitcases and you would have... More

We stayed at the Kensington Park hotel for three nights in July 2014. The hotel is totally OK, with good location (only steps away from Union Square). The rooms are a bit on the small side, with one cupboard being actually blocked by the bed. Bathroom, toiletries: OK. No fridge. The free WiFi works perfectly, which is not something I... More

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

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.
