We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. The staff there was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nicely decorated with japanese style items. Some parts of the hotel are quite aged though but this doesn't affect the overall experience. Just be aware that they charge for the minibar items and the snacks provided in the room. A basic...

Our family stayed at the Kabuki with "tween" children for an overnight stay to break up a long driving trip. Our room and the hotel were beautiful; reminded me of my travels to Japan. Comfortable beds and nicely sized room for our party. It is quiet, excellent location with great customer service. Some parts of the hotel need an update... More

We needed to be near UCSF, and found this hotel online. It was more luxurious than we had anticipated. There was a beautiful lobby, with friendly, helpful reception. Their outdoor garden was so peaceful to walk in. The rooms were large enough, with a balcony, and even robes to use. The bathroom had a room with a deep, narrow soaking... More

It makes me sad to write this as the workers are very nice and helpful in most ways but and I like the location and wonderful Japanese style bath. Sadly this stay did match my previous stays which were wonderful. To start the cover of my bed had dark maroon looking stains in several spots and was coming apart at... More

The hotel is conveniently located on Post Street in Japantown, right up the street from the Japan Center Mall, which houses various eateries & adorable shops. That isn't to say that you must eat there, the minute you step outside of the hotel you are bombarded with places to dine at all around you. The property is well maintained &... More

Stumbled onto this place and it is gorgeous! Very peaceful, relaxing, and detailed. Perfect for a business traveler or a romantic getaway - not much for kids to do. Nice restaurant/bar and close to bus/trolley and walk to/thru Japan town and cute street market.
