My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at Hotel Kabuki. The staff was friendly and delightful. Our room was clean, comfortable with a beautiful view. We would recommend the hotel to friends and family.

Hotel Kabiki is conveniently located with the bus stop to get to downtown no more than half a block away. There are a number of fine Japanese and Korean restaurants just across the street or down the block. Like being in Japan, I had the same feeling of being safe in this area of San Francisco.

The Kabuki is a little Zen retreat in one of the quieter areas of the the city that to spend the night. Hotel was clean and well maintained.

My girlfriend and I had an enjoyable long weekend at the Kabuki and were impressed with the service and liked the location. We were on the 16th floor during the earthquake and everything shook but no damage. San Francisco was not really hit but I was happy we were staying at the Kabuki. Front desk and Manager Ben run a...

We stayed at Hotel Kabuki for a weekend in December 2013. We paid for a higher rate to get some bonus Hawaiian Miles. I received no miles at all, much less no bonus miles. I emailed (with my Hawaiian Miles number, and the original reservation) the manager of the hotel twice in May and July 2014, as well as the... More

I lucked into a pretty last-minute reservations for the Hotel Kabuki in Japantown in San Francisco in mid-August. Only $229/nite on AAA.com, plus parking. I had a reservation for 2 nights and wanted to add another (at the same rate, of course), and the hotel reservations agent was able to do that for me after first saying the third night... More

I was there on a business trip. This hotel has a Japanese twist. I liked it. Here is my experience: (1) Lots of space in rooms - bed is reasonable. You can enjoy the view on one of the city's landmark (Japanese monument). (2) I like to walk, I don't mind it. If you are reasonably healthy, you can easily... More

Even though it is located away from the typical tourist attraction sites, it is still within walking distance. Loved the room decor and the separation of toilet from the shower and deep soaking tub and plenty of space to hold toiletry. The neighborhood is safe with so many places to eat. We loved it

We stayed in Hotel Kabuki only because closest to California Pacific Medical Center. Window in my room was decorated in Japanese style but nothing to talk about. We had two rooms, single room is fair but twin bed room is not large enough for two beds. Each room had Keurig coffee maker but coffee pack, condiments were not high quality.... More

Every 4-6 months I come in from out of town for medical tests at CPMC. I have stayed at the Hotel Kabuki several times during these trips. They offer nice patient rate and are a shuttle stop for CPMC. This makes it very convenient for those needing to go back and forth to the hospital. Every time I have stayed... More
