We stayed here in Sept 2014. Main rooms are quite spacious and grand with a definite European feel. Once you venture past and hop the elevator it changes quite a bit. Exiting off the elevator you're transported back a few notches. In fairness, they told us there are renovations that will change all this, but there is quite a smell... More

The hotel is right in the heart of downtown and walking distance to everything! Being downtown means it's an old building, but it has been remodeled wonderfully! Everything was very clean and fresh. Rooms are small, but it's downtown San Francisco, so it's what you would expect! They were incredibly quiet though and we slept very well!!!

We moved to the Villa Florence after a nice stay in the Mission District as we wanted to be closer to more things around Union Square. The hotel - while older- is still in very good condition but you have to "navigate" hallways - not straight shots as in newer hotels. The staff was most pleasant and helpful. We appreciated... More

In a great location close to Union Square - great for shopping & cable cars. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The rooms overlook the street so can be a little noisy at times. The staff are very courteous and helpful

The location and staff are great, and the lobby is very nicely done with plenty of room to spread out. But like many older places in SF, the rooms are certainly showing their age, but still clean and you can tell they're attempting to keep them up. Note that this hotel is on the cable car line which runs until... More

We chose Villa Florence for its location, but the air conditioning did not work. The technician claimed there was a bad connection at the outlet. He attached an extension to another outlet and that outlet also short circuited. They were unable to make the repair, and left us with no AC and a dangling extension cord. They were unwilling to...

Location, location, location!!! A very cute boutique hotel that is an amazing location! We flew into San Francisco and took the BART right to the Powell line and from there walked an easy walk to the hotel. Loved being close to the cable lines! Great location near many great shops! Walked to the Italian district for dinner, pier 23, ferry... More

Have stayed here twice-9 years apart and have loved it both times. Small and discreet but right in the middle of Powell St. Close to cable cars, shopping and all that San Francisco can offer. First visit we had an inside room-view of an air shaft in the middle of the building. Second visit we had a room overlooking an... More
