We've stayed here twice in the last year, and the second visit was just as fine as the first. The hotel is quiet, clean, well maintained, and has these nifty green tea mints at the reception desk. And the neighborhood is a lot of fun, too - check out the hardware store across the street for a different take on... More

I stayed here recently for a conference for 2 days and 3 nights. The hotel was decorated very tastefully and the garden is beautiful. All of the staff are very nice and helpful. The meeting rooms also served their purpose well. Japantown is not the most tourist-friendly part of San Francisco, but I still enjoyed walking around neighboring areas. A... More

My teenager loved our stay at the hotel. The room was lovely with a great view of the valley. The fact that it was so close to the mall was a big hit and it was super convenient to catch a bus to either Ocean Beach or the Ferry Building. Lots of great dining choices. The teenager recommends the donburi... More

Booked a room at the Hotel Kabuki to mesh with massage and bath at the Kabuki Hot Springs. Was pleasantly surprised with the free wine and bath passes. The room was in the newer portion of the hotel. Comfortable, well appointed and with a fantastic Japanese soaking tub in the bathroom. Whats especially nice is that the toilet is in... More

We really enjoyed our stay. I loved the style of this place and also liked the location in Japantown. It was a very peaceful area. We would definitely come here again. The staff was very helpful. The front desk recommended a excellent place to have a nice dinner & was so pleased that it was in walking distance. Turned out... More

I stay here whenever in San Francisco.....there is convenient underground paid parking and the hotel is adjacent to the Cultural center. This center boasts numerous eateries most of which offer sushi.....my favorite is Mifune and across the way is a fun place where small dishes of fare are floated on little boats...You are charged according to the color of the...

The room was the smallest hotel room that I've seen in a long time. There was no dresser in our room, so I had to live out of my suitcase. The faucet for the shower in the bath tub broke off in my husband's hand and there was gum in the bath towel he reached for! We would never have... More

This was a very disappointing visit for my wife and I, we cancelled our stay after the first night for a number of reasons: 1. Room was not clean, carpets stained and room smelled musty, we looked at a number of other rooms to no avail, all poor; 2. Aircon did not work properly, poor nights sleep, 3. Shower did... More

Room: was okay. TV is outdated but still functions well, no biggie. There was a musty smell in the room when I got there. That didn't bother me too much after I let the room air out a bit. And I got in pretty late so all I wanted to do was crash and rest. The AC didn't work during... More

The stay started off poorly when I got an email stating that the room we had reserved would not be ready when I arrived at 3pm. I can understand if I was trying to check-in before the allotted time, but this just speaks to poor management. However, when I arrived at the time I was told the room would be... More
