I traveled with my 9 year old and the location and comfort of the hotel where great! The staff was friendly and happy.. The fact that we arrived the day the Warriors won the NBA series also added to that fact. The room was spacious and the bed and pillows very comfortable. The design of the room was modern yet...

San Francisco is an awesome place. This is the 5th SF hotel I've stayed at. The room prices all seem rather comparable. Villa Florence is midway between Geary and O'Farrell on Powell. It's very convenient to the Powell BART station, busses and trolleys, and to Union Square just just the hill half a block. Rooms are nicely appointed, though we... More

The rooms were comfortable and nicely decorated, though small. Everything seemed very clean. I stayed on an inside room so no trouble with outside noise. Of course, the location is great. Check in was quick and efficient. Concierge was helpful with recommendations for restaurants.

I was extremely satisfied with the level of service I experienced, the comfort of the room, the proximity to Union Square, and the great restaurant. I felt valued as a guest from the moment I checked in until I checked out three days later. The room decor was beautiful, and the bed very, very comfortable. My room faced the street,... More

This hotel has been remodeled recently and the decor looks beautiful. However the building is very old and there are signs of it. The room was somewhat small, but not too small. However, the bathroom was very small. The location was great and the staff was very friendly.

Dear Sam H, Thank you for taking the time to share feedback about your recent stay with us! We're very glad you enjoyed our wonderfully renovated rooms; you're very right---Villa Florence has been a hotel for over 100 years so the hotel has plenty of charm that only an older building can have! I certainly hope we can welcome you... More

The lobby/reception area is quite nice; you have the restaurant/bar area also in the same space. The location is central and located near all the shopping and various bars & restaurants. There is also a cable car line right outside the hotel. Check-in was quick and efficient and the gentleman that helped us was very professional/courteous. However, things started taking... More

This was our first time to be in downtown San Fransisco and we wanted to be near public transportation; this location was perfect. We were able to get about the city without moving our car.
