You definitely get what you pay for in the City of San Francisco. Hotel is 15 minutes from everything! The trolley is on the Powell Street, the Bart is 5 minutes (you can take to and from S.F. Airport, China Town is 10 minutes away, Fisherman's Wharf is about 15 minutes, the mall is two blocks away. Most importantly there... More

My wife and I where there on our late honey moon. We wanted something romantic. Therefore, when we checked in and was asked if we would like to upgrade our room to something higher my wife thought that would be great to have a better room of the city. We found the entire place to have a particular smell with... More

Dear Kyle, Thanks for sharing the comments from your recent visit with us. I am so sorry to read that you and your wife didn't enjoy your stay. Although it looks like the staff blocked you in a quiet location of the hotel, it sounds like we didn't meet your request for a city view room at all. Although it... More

The hotel is good, the staff were helpful, but I got a bad nights sleep every single night, due to the poor double glazing and the sheer amount of noise outside on Powell during the night. Interruptions from people shouting obscenities at the top of their voice to people just playing drums and blowing whistles at 4am in the morning.... More

Dear Vanessa, Thanks for the feedback from your recent stay. I am so sorry that the city / street noise kept you from getting your rest. Although this can't aide in making up for your experience, we are currently looking at options in upgrading the windows during our upcoming renovations that will take place later this year. We do hope... More

I recently stayed at the Villa Florence on my first trip to San Francisco to visit a friend that moved out there. The rooms are a reasonable price especially for staying right across from Union Square. You could not ask for a better location. The BART and MUNI are two blocks away and will take you all over the city.... More

The people who work in the hotel are great - I want to make that clear to start off with - and they were very accommodating. And I should preface this by saying that they would move me to a different room if there was too much noise. Unfortunately, on a business trip, getting back at gone 10pm, I just... More

I chose the hotel because it was in good walking distance to most places. The area itself (union square) is all shopping and not my thing to do on vacations. That said, if you're up for some walking, you can get to a ton of neighborhoods. We walked from the hotel to Chinatown, Nob Hill, Fisherman's Warf, Golden Gate Park,... More

Here is my story about the Villa Florence -- I made a last minute booking through Hotels.com (very easy and efficient, 2nd time using them!). I needed two suits for two nights and Villa Florence seemed to offer these at a good rate. THEN, after I made the booking, I looked at the reviews and they were bad, well on... More

I was lucky to stay here on my first visit to SFO. We were accidentally booked for a one queen room, but they kindly upgraded us to the two beds we needed. Great central location to explore the city and close to some cool attractions. Will keep on my radar for my next visit.

I stayed at this hotel during Fourth of July week. The price I found was great so I booked it and I'm glad I did. The best part is the location. The hotel is in the Union Station area and since I'm from NYC, I can say this area greatly reminded me of NYC. There was plenty of tourists walking... More

Despite its very central location right next to the cable car, I did not find it too noisy at night and could sleep like a baby. That was my main worry before booking at the Villa. My room was at the 5th floor facing Powell st. Everything else in the room was as expected from this price range. Also very... More
