The hotel locates in the heart of SF and the room is OK. I book it from priceline and got the same price as the Westin. But I think this 3.5 star is trying so hard to keep this star rank. What is unpleasant is that it charge me additional $22 for no reason and didn't reply my email. It... More

My companion and I stayed in a traditional double room for four nights in April 2014. We were very fortunate to get the room for an excellent price through Expedia. Overall, I was happy with the hotel and would recommend it to others. Villa Florence is an older hotel with a lot of character -- it's definitely not a cookie-cutter... More

We had stayed at Villa Florence several years ago when it was operated by others. At that time I considered it okay, but not great. The new operator and the front house staff are much improved. We made our reservations by phone and received better rates than found online. The staff delivered a bottle of wine and chocolate dipped strawberries... More

Lobby and location are nice but the rooms are extremely outdated and look nothing like the pictures. The rooms are really small and seem unsanitary. The front desk staff were relatively nice. Only 2 elevators which are extremely small and extremely slow. Fitness center open 6-10. Walk up just a walk up Powell to China town, close to the financial... More

I love the style of the hotel and the rooms. There is an excellent restaurant onsite. There is also a wine/espresso bar onsite with indoor and outdoor seating (for people watching). It's perfect if you want something quick and easy, cheese plate, sandwiches, desserts, pizzas.

Very quiet rooms, you can sleep deeply uninterrupted without hearing any of the outside or nearby noise. In my room, the external view from the window is not interesting, just the other-side rooms. Wifi free, good especially in the reception area, however it drops in the room especially as you go away from the door. It is an old italian... More

Went to SF for a business and stayed in the Heart of San Francisco. Perfect location to be right in the middle of Union Square! This hotel is close to shopping and Theaters. It has an attached restaurant, but is a little pricy. Great less expensive restaurants located near by.

We stayed one week here last June 2013 great location on market street 3 blocks from the trolley cars that take u to pier 39. Also by Lombardi (crooked street). The hotel itself was Italian Mediterranean inspired and we enjoyed dining at the restaurant as the coffee bar was excellent. The rooms were very clean it is an older hotel... More

I don't think i have ever had such a hospitable stay in a hotel before. The room was lovely, clean and had everything it needed, it was the friendliness and the customer focus of personnel that really stands out. I would recommend this hotel at my friends and colleagues.

Just spent the weekend in SF and stayed at Villa Florence for two nights. Not sure how we booked it, but the room we had on the 7th floor was large with wonderful high ceilings and very quiet. Bathroom was nicer than last stay, shower was high on the wall and had great pressure even on the top floor. The... More
