Stayed three nights. Okay as a place to store your stuff and spend your nights. Not a big fan of being offered an upgrade on our room in exchange for posting a great/excellent review for the hotel on trip advisor. Located within a 10-15 min. Walk from the warf.

Early this morning after having to call twice since I was put on hold for more than 10 minutes both times the hotel confirmed my reservation and that there would not be able to do any early check in. They would however take care of our luggage while we did touristy things. We arrived the hotel but where asked just... More

I had booked the Da Vinci in advance for 3 nights in July during our stop in San Francisco while on our 16 day Pacific Coast road trip. Initially I'd booked on Expedia and gotten a rate of about $289 + tax a night. Pricey, but still cheaper than many comparable hotels in the area for this busy summer period.... More

Da Vinci Villa was just what we needed for a one night stay in San Francisco. The location was right where we needed to be. The View from our terrace on the top floor was outstanding. The elevators are slow, resorted to the stairs everytime. The room had a smell, but was clean. A few bugs were found near the... More

this was our very first international holiday and San Francisco was our first stop, on 30th May 2015. We stayed at Da Vinci Villa. We found the location ideal. The hotel was clean and well kept.

It was a great spot, just a few blocks from Fishermans Wharf. Needed a new A/C unit while we were there, but the hotel took care of that quickly. Needed to keep the A/C on to hide the noise from other rooms. Free breakfast was ok, but crowded (as anything free tends to be).

This hotel wasn't fancy, but it was perfectly located to get to any attraction in the area. We tried taking the bus system, but at a couple dollars per head each way, we found the local taxi service much more convenient and a similar value. We chose this hotel because they accept pets, but were nearly turned away because of... More

This villa is very close to shopping area, crooked road, golden gate, union square, fisherman's warf etc. Room is okay and restaurant below does not have veg options. We asked for milk powder in the room since it was not refilled for 2 days but only got it after 2 reminders. Except for location everything else is average.

The Hotel is great, and the staff (Sameen & Angel )are very friendly, and professional(they solved a problem with our reservation in no time and always smiling), rooms are big and clean. Comfy bed. Clean bathroom with plenty of fluffy towels. Awesome view from 5th floor. Close to public transport and near lots of restaurants. Worth the money A+

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
