We were visiting friends and stayed in Union Sq due to location. The hotel is nice and clean. It is in a good location. The rooms are very small and it was very noisy throughout the night. We stayed on the 2nd floor and overlooked Powell. We were asked for the option of Powell or O'Farrell. We should have taken... More

If location and value are high on your priority list, Villa Florence can't be beat. Each one of the staff members we dealt with were friendly and helpful.. Building is old and shows it's age a bit in the hallways, but overall the entire place is very well-kept. Rooms are small but very clean with comfy beds and large screen... More

The Villa Florence was quaint, charming and sophisticated. I believe that there was a recent renovation, because many things seemed fresh and new. The room's decor was modern and luxurious. VF is in a great location, safe. The staff is superb. We used the valet parking services. While you have to give a 20 minute notice before retrieving your car,... More

The room was fine, but the first night was so noisy, I could not sleep and I asked to be moved to the back of the hotel. Great location. Lots of hotels in this area, ok choice and while I would not mind staying there again, I would not seek it out.

You can't ask for a better location than this! Right in the middle of downtown, this was ideal for our visit for a conference at Moscone Center (& is right in the middle of great shopping). It's an older building but it's kept very clean. While a Florence theme can be cheesy, they did a great job decorating tastefully -... More

When we first arrived we thought 'wow' we're right where we want to be. The trolley trams were right outside the front door, there was a cafe inside that served the perfect 'continental breakfast' being a fan of croissants etc..however, we had to wait rather too long for the reception to give us attention. This we discovered was a common... More

The hotel is nice, the staff very polite and accommodating, it's a good central location and was ideal placement for us to walk around San Francisco. We were there 3 nights and by the end of the trip I was pretty annoyed as every morning around 5 / 6am a very loud noise began, every morning, it sounded like road... More

Dear Alex H, Thank you for the valuable feedback regarding your stay with us. We're glad you enjoyed aspects of your stay but of course wish you could have relaxed and slept in more! For future reference, our rooms face various areas and for our more sensitive sleepers, we find that rooms facing the inner courtyard can help with noise... More

Last weekend me and my co-worker came to stay at the Villa Florence over the weekend for a work trip. The hotel was clean and comfortable, location was right near Union Square with tons of pubs and shopping. If that wasn't good enough we had the absolute pleasure of meeting a man named Daniel that works front desk. Daniel went... More

The hotel advertises a recent renovation. I'm not sure what they renovated although the bed was comfortable and the linens were mediocre. The room (and from past reviews we expected this) was small, very small. The bathroom is tiny, no counter space and the shower did not look like fresh. The sink was free standing and had a glass ledge... More

The location is the best for tourists since this hotel is in front of the cable car Powell station and the Westfield shopping center. Breakfast at the restaurant was delicious! Minus is a little noisy even at midnight, especially on Friday. Wall is thin and I could hear the sound of the next room.
