Beautiful hotel in Japantown, pretty quite area - however a bit far from attractions (except Japantown itself). We enjoyed a room with sauna and comfortable beds. For these coming with car (like us) there was an option of parking garage as well overnight street parking just a few meters away.

Came for a few days while visiting with friends in SF and the bay, where I used to live. I liked the hotel just fine, and the location is cool and interesting. I hadn't spent time in Japantown (it's really just a couple of blocks) before. Wouldn't necessarily recommend the place for first time visitors to the city though, as... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. Upon arriving and seeing the Bonsai Garden, I knew this place understood the meaning of tranquility. The rooms were nice, the bathrooms amazing and the beds were so comfortable.

We have stayed here before and love the location.........close to downtown, but a little less hectic. And we enjoy the ambiance and poking around Japantown even though we arrive by car not by plane. Unfortunately, some things are not working so well at the Kabuki these days. We can overlook that it is approaching the need for a major facelift.... More

Purchased this hotel stay through Travelzoo for under $200 a night, which is a good value in San Francisco. This hotel is recommended for those who have been to SF before. You're a 20 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf and not near Union Station, but it's peaceful and quiet in Japantown. I walked down to Golden Gate Park and to... More

We stayed six nights in a ground floor suite. We traveled with our teen daughter who slept on the pull-out sofa. The room's furnishings were a bit dated (couch was worn) but it was clean and comfortable. Large bathroom had a FANTASTIC shower with a large soaking tub (great for aching feet and legs after hiking thru the hills of... More

I love this hotel. The rooms are small, but lovely (and the sliders open completely so fresh air pours in) and the stone deep soak tubs are awesome. The staff is lovely and attentive. The view of Japantown and the City is breathtaking.

After being informed of a new refurbishment we had some expectation for this hotel. Located in Japan town we knew it wasn't prime location for us but it was the cheapest option. The hotel had a bad atmosphere with dark interior. If we were in a newly refurbished room I dread to think what the old ones were like. Horrible... More
