Friendly staff. Beautiful garden in view of lobby. The scent of sweet dry grass always present. Room was quaint. This time, the view was non existent, but they accommodated my daughter and I well. The bar was fun and friendly as well. Our trip combined her business and my mini vacation.

I've stayed at the Kabuki a few times. Once for a month or so. First of all let me say that there are not that many hotels in SF that are not downtown, and that staying elsewhere (not downtown) is much better. At least you get to see SF and are not in the middle of a mindless tourist frenzy.... More

The staff was efficient and friendly. Our early check-in and late check-out were accommodated to our liking. However, even considering it was SF, the price paid was not worth the hotel. Aging decor was not even remotely as modern as what the website would lead you to believe through photos. Having stayed in all kinds of hotels across the country... More

The service we received from Hotel Kabuki were excellent, friendly staff, comfortable bed, location. Abundance of nice restaurants is a big plus. Among all friendly staff, Joe (bell hop) was the best.

My visit to Hotel Kabuki reminds me of Japanese culture. Clean, precise, and, for lack of a better word, refinement. Simple comfort. The staff were completely gracious and remembered my name and my particular needs. Using a Toyota analogy - like a Lexus not a Corolla. The location is a quiet neighborhood setting. It's an easy and pleasant 15 minute... More

We have stayed at this hotel for over 10 years and have always been treated with nothing but kindness and respect by the staff. This trip was our daughters birthday, and the staff went above and beyond to have a present from the hotel waiting for her in our room when we checked in. Thank you to all the staff,... More

Everything about the hotel was nice. The corner patio was nice, wish it had enough room to sit outside. Only real flaw was the window shutters. Extremely hard to open and close. Pillows were great!!!!

I had a family vacation in US and we booked this hotel after we saw good reviews and great hotel rates plus one of the cheapest parking facility you can find in SFO. The rooms are spacious and inviting, simple yet functional, parking is easily accessible via Japan Center. The hotel location is perfect for those who liked Japanese food... More

I got a room right next to a busy street and I was tired after my flight so I tried to take a nap mid-afternoon. Needless to say, it was difficult, The room was nice. I only stayed there for one night. Watch any kids in the rooms, there's candy on a low shelf in the rooms. It's pretty pricey.... More

Hotel located inside Japan Town, lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. We reserved a family suite, it was spacious, had a separate bedroom with raised steps and closed sliding door. Both beds were very comfortable. Balcony was not accessible and no city view at all. Free WiFi access is a plus. Room was a little outdated, bath tub... More
