Stayed here on a business trip, not what I expected. This hotel is considered a "boutique hotel" in the heart of San Francisco's Financial District. Rooms are very small, I literally thought I would hit my bed every time I opened the bathroom door. Lighting is not very bright in the room, more like someone set a dimmer on &... More

Stayed here as part of our American adventure, as we had retired from our work and were celebrating our wedding anniversary. First room they gave us was a shoe box the next was slightly bigger. It was comfortable and clean,but, tired looking. Ended up just using it as a place to sleep. Could have done with an update. Staff friendly... More

This hotel is located just off of Union Square. The neighborhood feels safe, clean and business dense. The bell staff keeps a close eye on arriving taxis and greats you very quickly. The lobby is clean and reasonably sized. The room was updated, had a window air conditioner, and nice shower in the bath (no tub). Two flat screen televisions... More

The Villa Florance is beautiful. I have found the staff there are exceptionally charming, you never feel they have been drilled in customer service, more that they are genuine and warm. This was y second time there and I would suggest that anyone who is tired of the big chains packaged "luxury" in Union square and elsewhere should give this... More

This is a lovely little hotel. It is close to everything, and it is a very comfortable place to be. Having dispenser shower amenities makes so much sense instead of those little bottles that just go into a landfill. And for taking notes....a real pencil...it made me laugh. Kuleto's restaurant has amazing food. Much is locally sourced. The staff is... More

Very good hotel, in the heart of Union Square. Many good bars, restaurants and jazz clubs in the surroundings. Everything is within a walking distance, even the ferry port to Sausalito. Tube station three blocks away. The room was tiny but cozy. Would definitely go back!!

The hotel is old and I understand the problems that go along with that. But safety is an issue when one of the two elevators didn't work the entire three days we were at the hotel. The room was very clean but the amenities were missing. The shower held dispensers for body wash, shampoo and conditioner. The body wash container... More

Dear Liz, Thanks for taking the time to share your comments from your recent stay last week. I apologize that one of our guest elevators was out of service during your visit. I personally work very closely with our elevator contractor to maintain and service our elevators so that we ideally avoid situations like this. Unfortunately when a unforeseen part... More

I wanted to rate this 4.5 but that is not an option. It's in a great location in the heart of San Fransisco: Shopping, restaurants, conference center. The room was clean and nicely appointed with a nice comfy bed. The staff was friendly and helpful. We did ask for and got an off the street quite room. The room is... More

Stayed here during a business trip for three nights in mid July. As a first time visitor to SF this location in Union Square was great for getting to all the major tourist spots. On the other hand, the rooms look pretty old and outdated. That being said, the place was clean and quiet. Overall a decent stay.

This hotel offers great access to the Union Square district. The bar in the hotel is a great example of the Architecture from the early 1900's and the onsite restaurant serves fantastic food. The rooms in this hotel are large and have all the conveniences of the modern era we live in. I highly recommend this hotel.
