The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful. The room is very clean, maid service every day with fresh towels and sheets. The hotel is located in the heart of the Union Square area, perfect!! I highly recommend.

My husband and I loved this hotel! The front desk and concierge were both very helpful and courteous. We were celebrating our anniversary and the GM had chocolate covered strawberries and champagne waiting for us in our room! We stayed in a king bed room. It was a bit small but perfect for just the two of us. The rooms... More

We have stayed in San Francisco before but never right in the middle of the city.

This hotel is perfectly located in San Francisco. Kuletos restaurant is next door and it is one of our favorite restaurants. We just wanted to add a quick note about Jonathon at the front desk of Villa Florence. He was so kind, friendly and and he went out of our way to help us with our plans. Thank you Jonathon!!

Our family of 5 stayed at the Viilla Florence in July 2015 for 3 nights.The location of the Villa Florence Hotel is fantastic as it is very central nearby Union Square.

Excellent location, just off Union Square on Powell Street. The cable car runs right outside. Huge Westfield just 2 mins walk down Powell, and Macy's practically across the road. Great classic Italian Restaurant Kulettos right next door. The hotel itself is old but they have done a great job of modernizing it. The large bedroom was beautifully and tastefully furnished....

We stayed for three nights, room was very small ( we were two adults and our 17yr old). We were on the inside of the hotel so no view but then not disturbed by street noise.

This hotel is at the center of all that is Union Square. Lots of reviews in this area talk about the homeless people all around but honestly you're going to get that anywhere in downtown SF. There are so many great little cafes, bars, restaurants, and diners nearby and you can catch the subway to AT&T Park. Take time to... More

Can't beat this location! Right in the middle of everything you want to do. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were older and not pristine but clean, comfortable and fairly spacious for the city. Bath and closet size vary by room. Ours were both very large. Nice bath accessories and toiletries. Parking is pricey but we never had to... More
