My wife and I at the last minute decided on a trip to SF. Our choices were limited, so we chose the Villa Florence based on it's central location to Union Square and its Old World Charm. We received a warm welcome and we were quickly checked into our room. We were very impressed to find a gift waiting in... More

We asked for a room with a view which meant we could hear the cable cars and street noise constantly. Room was nice, just a little small but recently refurbished. About half a block from union square with unlimited shopping and dining and of course the great restaurant kuletos located downstairs in the building.

Location is excellent being in Union Square. Access to BART is very convenient. The rooms are typical size for downtown hotels, not spacious, but not too small. The staff is wonderful and very helpful with questions that might arise. The room was very clean and kept clean during our 3 night stay. The little coffee shop facing Powell street makes... More

We had a good experience staying at Villa Florence. The staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel is located at the center of the city!! It is very convenient to go anywhere. We will stay in the same hotel next time we visit San Francisco. The hotel has a very small and narrow elevator which may be a problem if... More

If you are ok in tiny spaces then this place is for you. Location is great, everything is walking distance. Bed was comfortable, clean room. Luis at front desk is really nice, avoid the tall blonde guy, he has an attitude like you're asking for a favor not to help you. Him and tiny space made this place a 4

I must say that I frequent San Francisco and Villa Florence was such a great place to stay for numerous reasons: shopping all day at Union Square could be difficult carrying all the shopping bags, and Villa Florence is so close to every store I wanted to Visit. So returning to the room, dropping the bags and then going back... More

The room was spacious and very comfortable. Had everything I needed and was incredibly quiet even though it was in the middle of a busy part of the city! It was an inside room, which certainly kept the noise down but it had great windows overlooking a simple patio.

excellent location for Union Square! Step outside your hotel and get on a cable car! Rooms are average size for a big city..... clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. Friendly staff.

Great location at this hotel though it is difficult to drive to if you need to stop outside as the traffic is busy. We parked up in a pay and display around the corner which was cheaper on a 24 hour basis and not too far to walk. It is based right in the square, a few doors down from... More

The staff is very kind and accommodating. My room was not ready nor what I had asked for. The concierge (can't remember his name) went above and beyond to accommodate me. The location is awesome. The hotel is beautiful. The beds need upgrading. I will stay there again but will park elsewhere! It's $58.00 a night!

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
