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

We stayed at this hotel in September 2014 whilst traveling the USA, the staff were very friendly and the hotel as a whole felt cosy and clean. We had a room with a view over the road where the cable cars come up which was nice, bedroom was of a good size and had a comfy bed and fresh bathroom.... More

Villa Florence is on Powell Street just off Union Square and right on the cable car lines. It would best be described as a boutique hotel. It's in an old building and while the carpeting is good, the walls seem to have just been convered with paint, as evidenced by a good deal of chipping and cracking. You can tell... More

We stayed here in sept 14 as a finish to a tour of the west. The hotel advertised valet parking, however doesn't take vans. (Which they don't advertise).I was then sent around to two different parks by the valet attendant who also didn't take vans. After an hour i finally found a park on my own accord at a premium...

My aunt arranged a family girls trip and after extensive research selected this hotel and I could not be more disappointed. The hotel staff was rude and condescending on two separate occasions. The first was when we checked in and were given rooms that were not in line with our reservation - we reserved rooms with two double beds and... More

Dear Amanda, I am sorry to read that recent stay was not enjoyable. We are still researching with the online site to see where the room type discrepancy might have occurred but from what we can tell, when Booking.com sent the reservation to us, each of the rooms reserved were for a single queen bed. As for the circumstance regarding... More

The whole place is clean, classy and central. The only thing is the rooms are smaller than we expected but still luxurious, modern and clean. Staff, very helpful. If your on a budget, try O'dooles diner around the corner. Massive feeds! Try the pastrami sandwich and asked for it to be 'dipped'. They'll know what you mean and you will... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Hotel is very conveniently located, just a couple blocks from the Powell St station, where you have access to the Muni and the BART. Nearby shopping, and a large Walgreens for basic convenience store needs. Within walking distance to several great places to eat. Hotel itself is nice and well kept. Bed was pretty comfortable....

Kudos to the front desk agents that juggled check-ins and being concierge at the same time on Wed Sep 17 around 2:30pm. There was a rush of arrivals with only two agents at the desk, each of these ladies tended to the guests with admirable patience, friendliness, while keeping their professionalism intact. What held up check-ins was the fact that... More

This is an average hotel. The room was on the smaller size. The bathroom is very small, the size of a closet. The carpet is tired looking and causes the place to smell old and in some places like urine. My air conditioner did not work. Thank goodness the window opens a little. It is on a very busy street...

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
