Villa Florence was the perfect place for me and a group of friends to stay on our girls weekend. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is great, near cable car, street car and under-ground transportation. It is also located walking distance from a lot of great restaurants and bars. The only compliant I would make about... More

We had not been to the Villa Florence Hotel for several years . We understood they just had a revamp and I have to tell you they did a fantastic job! Villa Florence is located right next to the Kuleto restaurant, which is a fantastic place to eat . You are truly in the heart of Union Square . Choose... More

We especially liked the 60" Smart TV. This location is awesome for shopping and there are several tasty restaurants in the surroundings. The staff was helpful... More

Not the cheapest of accommodations, and the price for a family suite ( 2 adults and two kids) was awfully expensive when compared to European prices (well over 300 USD per night) , especially when considering the fact that breakfast was not included. Décor is not the most up-to-date either. Having said that, it is very centrally located, right on... More

Whilst this hotel is in a great location being close to Union Sq it is in need of a refurbishment. Rooms are large but no views. No tray refill one day. Windows were dirty. Lacks maintenance. Great lobby

We needed a place to stay before leaving California after a longish holiday. The room was very comfortable and modern. The desk clerk asked us if we wanted a quieter room or a better view. We chose the quiet and had a great sleep. The windows open to a shaft/ or alley but I liked getting real fresh air. The... More

Great beds, sheets, pillows and clean a big must for our family. Again room and baths just way to small... More

We had to take this hotel late as a previous booking we made elsewhere was bounced. Given the circumstances, we did OK. The staff are very friendly, the public areas are very nice, but the rooms are a bit tired - esp. the bathrooms. Sleep was a little difficult, as the air con sounds a bit like a 1950's aeroplane....
