Location is perfect very close to Union square. Parking house is less than a block away. However, the 2 double beds in our room where really narrow. Travelling 3 togheter that ment that at least two of us slept horrible. Tiny rooms and bathroom, but I do not expect more downtown in a big city.

After booking at another hotel up the street because this one was all booked the day we reserved our room, we checked to see if there was any availability here as soon as we arrived, and we were in luck! We quickly cancelled our res at the "other hotel" and came here, and we were not disappointed. The front desk... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in August '14. I was in a junior suite, and this being peak summer even that's expensive. I was on a company sponsored event though, and got an awesome stay in SF for free. The hotel is in a very desirable location, 2 blocks from bart, cable cars and very close to a bunch of... More

Dear Vamsi, Thanks for the review from your visit last summer. With our room renovations just wrapping up, we hope to see you back again soon so that you can experience the new rooms. And I too enjoy the burger place next door. It's a great, convenient option to off set all of the pasta at Kuleto's. See you soon.... More

Smack dad in the heart of the husel and busel of Union Square is this great little oasis of a hotel! From the door man to fromt desk to housekeeping, nothing but great service and friendly smiles. Rooms are a little on small size, but decorated nicely and very comfortable. Loved having the nice little cafe in lobby that has... More

The location of the hotel could not be better. You are in walking distance to many wonderful restaurants and shopping in Union Square. I will be... More

we stayed in room 725, deluxe double room with two teenagers. The room was spacious. The bathroom was small, however we did not plan our trip to stay in our room. The beds were comfortable and our rear-facing room was quiet and we slept well. The only part that was odd was that we had to put our privacy plaque... More

Just got back from 3 nights with my husband and 2 kids. I love what they have done in their renovation. Greeted with Limoncello (a kids version too!) set the tone for great hospitality.

When I spend a weekend in San Francisco I always try to stay at Ville Florence. They recognize me, the staff is super-helpful and friendly and I really feel welcome. Free wifi working very well, limoncello tastes often in the afternoon, and they try to accommodate every special request. Convenient for many restaurants and public transport.
