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

This is mainly about our last visit, but kind of a combination of 3 stays here. After the last time, however, we have decided to not come back to the Villa Florence again. We often stay in the city for 1 or 2 nights at a time when we come in for Giants baseball games during the summer. It has... More

I was glad to read that you had previously stayed at the Villa Florence more than once over the past 10 years and again chosen to return despite issues that occurred on your last visit. Although it sounds like you enjoyed parts of your recent stay, I... More

I just got back from a 4 night stay over 4th of July. The front desk staff and concierge were extremely helpful in recommendations for things to do, giving directions and booking a wine tour and airport shuttle. Everyone was friendly and courteous. The room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was a little small. Overall though it was very... More

I stayed here with my sister and Mom. We traded off with the regular bed and the sofa bed. Both were so uncomfortable I didn't sleep either night. The beds were dipped in the middle and the pillows were very lumpy. The rooms were incredibly dated. They could definitely use new linens and wallpaper. The location in SF is incredible... More

I just read the funny line someone gave about knowing when he was 'dismissed.' I kind of got the same thing when I checked in. The young lady at the desk literally motioned for me to move toward her when it was my turn at the desk. I found it quite funny. Fortunately, the gentleman who checked me out of... More

This hotel is located near great shops and San Francisco attractions. The staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant is excellent. Food was fresh, delicious, and cannot be beat. Happy hour at the bar is amazing. The accommodations are beautiful. I highly recommend this hotel.

I booked this hotel using an anonymous feature and I pretty much guaranteed I won't be doing that again. The location in Union Square can't be beat and the room was clean, but that's about all this hotel had going for it. After booking online, I called to make sure I would receive a room with two beds and got... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and chose it based on location! Location-wise this is pretty hard to beat!! It is just off from Union Square and very close to Market Street and therefore Powell Street BART station, so easy to get to and from the airport. Also directly opposite Macy's and other fabulous shops in the area, which is good... More

I traveled to San Francisco last summer with my family and we decided to find a hotel near Union Square in downtown San Francisco, and it is around a three minute walk to Union Square. In other words, the location was prime. We heard many great things about Villa Florence so we decided to book this hotel since we wanted... More

With its fusion of eclectic European flair and metropolitan energy, the Villa Florence is authentically furnished and is ideally located in the epicenter of San Francisco – steps from Union Square. The hotel offers personalized experiences tailored to guest’s individual needs and interests, from complimentary wireless high speed Internet, DVD players and movie libraries, to a full service business center and a knowledgeable concierge program.
