I have been coming to Hotel Kabuki on regular basis for the past 15 months and never been disappointed. Rates are reasonable. Staffs are polite. Rooms are clean and spacious. It is adjacent to Japan town. There are many places to shop and dine. Supermarkets are nearby. Both Sundance Cinema and Kabuki Spa are one block away (ask for complimentary... More

It was our first stay here. The room we had, there was a Man who stayed in there for the last three days. They quickly fixed the problem by giving us another room and gave us complimentary breakfast. We end up having a corner room. Which gave us more of San Francisco. I would really recommend this place for anyone.... More

The room is basic and should try and have a semblance of luxury but the bathroom really looks nice. Security should be improved as anyone can walk into the room without question. At least visitors should be directed to the reception to confirm if he/she should be allowed in. The dining services needs to be developed as I had to... More

Overall, it is exactly as advertised. Nice Japanese aesthetic, with spacious rooms, good views and very clean overall. Common facilities are good, and the gym is outstanding (one of the best hotel gyms I ever remember seeing). They also use a texting system to communicate with guests prior to arrival - which is extremely helpful. Downside is tha the place... More

The hotel was very good in that it was clean, spacious, good room facilities, my wife really liked the deep bath and it had been recently refurbished.

We have our visiting faculty speaker stay here each month and have found the property to be most excellent for their needs. The staff is very helpful and the close proximity to our lecture facility and Japan Town with its great food is ideal.

This hotel is pretty good. It's in Japan town, and walking distance to some good places to eat. The rooms were clean and comfortable although you could hear some noises from other rooms at night. There's nothing especially special about this hotel but it does the job and we got a better rate than other San Fran hotels were offering.

Enjoyed the Asian touch, the Japanese gardens, hot tubs and the location was perfect. We loved staying in the Kabuki and after long excursions it was a great pleasure to return home to this hotel daily. We had a nice long stay, a full week an it was definitely a hotel to return to.
