Couple in late forties - Visited SF for the first time and stayed here Sept 7th through 11th on 13th floor in the room with the balcony. I've done an extensive research before settling on Kabuki hotel and we are satisfied. Being huge fans of Japanese cuisine, it came as a surprise that best Japanese restaurants in SF are NOT... More

If more investment had been made in updating the property, this review would have been, most likely, Very Good. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant did a good job with a Happy Hour special that is a good value. But those rooms need updating...Overall a pretty good value, but I don't know whether that was due to... More

The hotel has a nice and quiet atmosphere. Our room was at the topfloor so we had a viewcover the city seeing the top of the transatlantic tower at the sky line. I may be pre judged because I like Japanese decoration and atmosphere. Really liked the genuine Japanese bathroom with deep bathtub and seperate shower. The neighbourhood is very... More

We enjoyed a wonderful stay in the Kabuki. It was our last stop in a tour from Vegas to S.F via LA. The room was lovely with nice view. The reception and garden area added to the stylish and relaxing feel of the hotel. San franciscos excellent public transport made getting about easy. The staff were friendly and helpful.A special...

I expected a lot from the photos and the mostly favorable reviews but I have to honestly say that we stayed in what was easily the least satisfactory hotel room I've been in in awhile. Our room felt like a room in a hospital, the decor and fixtures just had that feel, definitely didn't feel like we were at a... More

I've always wanted to stay at the Hotel Kabuki since I am a regular at the Kabuki Spa and the Kabuki Theater. I thought for my birthday it would be a great J-Town adventure to to see a movie, get dinner, get a massage and stay in the hotel. I really enjoyed my stay there and the front desk staff... More

My wife and I recently enjoyed a stay at Hotel Kabuki in Japan town SF. The hotel lobby is stylish and the rooms were clean and comfortable. It is not a 5-star hotel but it definitely fit in with the clean and stylish atmosphere of Japan town. We enjoyed the city view from our room and the local scenery. We... More

We spent our final 4 nights of a roundtrip to California, Nevada and Arizona in the Kabuki. We booked online on the day we arrived and compared to the hotel 2 weeks earlier, which was quite disappointing, the Kabuki was worth the price. People at the front desk were very friendly, but not very good informed (sightseeing, bridge toll). The... More

The Kabuki is a nice hotel, featuring clean and handsome rooms with stylish Japanese-inspired details. Instead of drapes on the windows, wood-frame paper sliding doors can be open, closed or translucent allowing sunlight to filter through a rice-paper privacy door. The bathroom has a Euro-style shower with no curtain, but the overall effect is quite elegant. My first room looked... More
