This is a Japanese-themed hotel in the heart of a Japanese neighborhood of San Francisco. (For those who have been in Japan, don't worry -- the rooms are American size and the beds are American beds.) Extra touches include a Japanese bath on site (for an extra fee) and a Japanese restaurant as well. The bed was awesome! The service... More

I arrived at the Kabuki hotel at 1:30 and was told that my room wasn't ready and wouldn't be til 3 P.m. The man at the desk told me there was no obligation to provide a room til them. I understand that rooms need to be cleaned but he was pretty snooty about it. He didn't indicate that it might... More

Originally reserved a traditional Japanese suite and it was gorgeous. Sadly, we had to "upgrade" to another suite to accommodate our toddler... who was a bit too enthusiastic about the zen sand and rock gardens, and who also needed true walls and curtains to a bedroom (rather than rice paper), in order to sleep through naps and early evening, when...

I booked directly with a Hotel staff member by phone--she was very courteous and got me a low price for the evening. When I checked in, the young lady at the hotel front desk was very upbeat and polite and I received a complimentary bottle of wine. As always, the rooms are spotless and designed with aesthetically appealing Japanese decor.

A very nice place to stay outside of downtown SF. Several SF neighborhoods are within walking distance that give you a wide variety of shopping and dinning options. If you are planning to take the BART in from SFO or OAK plan to get off near Union Sq. and then take a cab or bus up to the hotel. If... More

I had an enjoyable experience at Hotel Kabuki. After a rough start to our trip (two cancelled flights!!!) we were happy to arrive at a calm and charming place. Staffs were all very friendly.

I stayed at the hotel on a business trip this weekend. It's a beautiful hotel in a nice location. Easy, safe walking to Japan Town and restaurants. Very clean, relaxing, and staff was wonderful. Can't answer value question since I didn't pay for my own room.

I've stayed several times here at lower priced rooms. They were nicer than the higher priced room this time on an access controlled floor. Card reader in elevator worked sporadically and one man told me he spent 5 minutes swiping it in the car before success. Desk staff was helpful in providing new cards. Keurig coffee machine in room worked... More
