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

Great location, close to everything (Bart, Cable cars, restaurants, main attractions.....), I'd say in safe part of the city. Street is very busy, during a day and night. Yes, it is very expensive, but other hotels in SF are expensive as well. Room was very small, two beds are very comfortable, clean, bathroom was the smallest I've ever seen (big... More

We arrived at the hotel shortly after 10AM and the gave us our room right away, regardless that the check-in time was 3PM. The girl at the front desk did warn us that the room could be noisy at night since it was in the second floor and facing the street, but we are heavy sleepers so we took it... More

Stayed at the Villa Florence for 2 nights with my family recently and its kind of a mixed bag. While the property presents themselves and prices themselves as a 5 star i think it falls a bit short. The pros:Location is great as long as you don't mind a tremendous amount of traffic-both pedestrian and vehicles--directly in front of the... More

Great location and reasonable price however we tried booking online with hotels.com and had difficulty with their matrix as they only accept maximum four occupancy and we were five. They initially gave us a very tiny room and gave us ample bedding to make a little bed for my 7 year old. It was fun for the children. The next... More

I recently stayed at this hotel and got very sick with nausea etc. Early in the morning, just before 6 am, I dragged myself downstairs and asked for some crackers or bread to ease the nausea. The staff (reception and kitchen) looked at me and I told that this was a hotel and I could go to Starbucks when they... More

I am sincerely sorry to read the comments from your recent stay and the lack of courtesy from our staff. To fall sick while traveling has to be one of the worst scenarios possible. I personally have made many a trips to the store for chicken noodle soup or crackers for guests in the same situation. I am truly embarrassed... More

I do not know why these hotels think they should nickel and dime a person that is paying ca. $300/night for the privilege of staying there. I booked on Expedia a stay that that clearly stated "taxes and fees included", only to find during the final stages of the booking that $18/night "administrative fee" would be charged during check-in. What???... More

Wonderful stay, friendly helpful staff, great Italian restaurant attached which was probably one of the best meals we had during our stay, convenient location with the tram line outside. Would definitely go back, loved the older style charm of the building
