The location cannot be beat. Its in the centre of it all and very walkable to anything a tourist would like to see in San Francisco. The staff was great. My only complaint is that we arrived 10 minutes before the standard check-in time and we couldn't get a room right away and had to store our baggage.

Everyday we had to go to reception as our door cards would not work . Other than that room was nice and staff was really friendly. Also there were loud bangs in the middle of the night and the heating did not work

We found the staff to be very pleasant. The room was small, but perfectly adequate and clean. The small bathroom needs a shelf or something on which to put your toiletries. The location was great. Lots to do and places to eat, drink or shop nearby. As a note, while most everything was clean, I noticed that the carpet or... More

Location was great but the hotel is old and required upgrades. Do not get a room overlooking the street. The street is on the cable car line and is incredibly noisy. I have stayed in numerous big cities before, New York, Boston, Denver etc and this was the first time ever that I had to change a room at a... More

We have been staying at the Villa Florence several times a year since 2008. You can't beat the location. The rooms/suites are clean and well equiped. We prefer staying on a higher floor with a street view so we can hear & see the bustle of SF. The employees are friendly & courteous, greet you when ever they see you... More

very cool older building and request for high up street view was more than met. Rooms are generally small but have amenities needed. Staff friendly. Kuletos and Bar Norcini excellent food and service which was wonderful surprise. Second part of stay on second floor and noisier so bring ear plugs as this is action packed area!

While we enjoyed the hotel, we were disappointed in the staff's inflexibility when it came to one request. Through a mishap with Payless car rental at the airport, we arrived without a rental car. I had puchased rooms with a free valet parking deal, a value of $90. When we explained that we were not going to have a car,... More

This is a central location and easy walking distance to most sights. The staff is friendly and efficient. The room was very clean however the bed was lumpy and hard. I had asked for a quiet room but was kept up until 10:00 because of the live street music outside my window. I needed sleep for business activities but didn't... More

Dear Karilallred, Thank you for the valuable feedback; i'm so sorry your room location wasn't as quiet as you would have liked; we do offer rooms in various locations for our more noise-sensitive guests and it sounds like we didnt' do a great job at making sure this was the case for you. I hope you'll give the hotel another... More

The location had a ton of fun things to do nearby. Rooms were clean with modern look. Took a quick trolley close-by to the Warf and Pier 39. Small fridge in the rooms. The street is blocked except for drop-offs and valet and that was a bit confusing, but other than that everything was good. I would stay there again.

We were three days in San Francisco. The Villa Florence was very good overall. Very friendly staff, always helpful. Fast and easy check-in and check-out. It has also a top location for sightseeing, shopping, dining etc. We highly recommend the hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa Florence offers 189 guest rooms, where the Italian-inspired theme continues in the rooms' furniture selection featuring cut velvet lounge chairs and large dramatic Peony flowers painted on the guest bed headboards. The flowers, reminiscent of Florentine flower markets, pair elegantly with bed pillows featuring the Fleur-des-Lis, the symbol of Florence. Each guestroom highlights the uniqueness of the building's architecture, featuring one-off pieces in each room, while the portraits in the guest room corridors are inspired by the Renaissance and evoke the spirit of art, literature, and learning. The whimsical photos in the guest room corridors were created by Liz Heras, a well-known Los Angeles-based graphic artist who creates custom graphic artwork for large-scale hotel projects nationwide. With ample room for the family, an intimate backdrop for romance, and upgraded amenities, Villa Florence will keep you connected to home. ... more   less
