Perfect family stay. Nice room loads of space. Kids loved it. Bit of a trek to the main sights, but taxis are cheap and the local area is pretty interesting too with a plethora of great Japanese restaurants. Awesome sushi locally. Especially in the local mall.

We appreciate the kind words of your Hotel Kabuki experience, and we're especially happy this was complemented so perfectly by our Japantown community. With much to experience and explore across both, we hope to welcome you back the next time you're in San Francisco! More

Just love, love, love this hotel! Even before I arrived I received a welcome text from Hotel Kabuki asking if I have any special requests. I requested a room with AC that I can control (this was very important to me), a cot and extra towels. ALL of these requests were ready and met. The Hotel smells like a spa... More

On-line pricing was cheaper, when we arrived it was $100 more! The hotel uses every chance to up-sale. We wanted to park our car early in public parking garage they have access to before our room was ready, when we entered their parking area, we were met with dirty looks and questions of "you know you have to pay for...

Nice boutique hotel in San Francisco's Japan Town adjacent to the Fillmore District. Within walking distance to great dining and music. Enjoyed a deluxe corner King with wrap around balcony. Japanese soaking tub may be a bit overrated especially since I just got back from Tokyo, but loved the hotel. The interior garden is beautiful. Didn't have time to explore... More

We certainly understand the pangs of San Francisco paring and work hard to provide offerings that are as accessible as they are competitive. We'll continue to review these to ensure these meet and exceed the hospitality you've come to know of our property, and we hope to further share this dedication in San Francisco travels to come. Thanks for your... More

Overall, I enjoyed my stay at Kabuki. The staff was polite and professional. My corner room was a good size. I would have enjoyed a larger TV. One of my sliding doors didn't open, the other was difficult and in need of repair. But for the price and location, I would go back

We had a comfortable stay here. There's nothing special about the rooms, just the basic comforts. The hotel itself is nice and the Japanese garden was pretty. The hotel balcony is not really useable. It had a ton of bird poop and feathers all over. Not a good idea to open the sliding door or step out, unless you're a... More

We have been staying here for years and love the location, staff, access to the spa and the amenities. However, we've noticed that the property is becoming more run down, shabby even. This place needs a makeover!
