To be completely honest, I work in the industry and I really REALLY hate to complain, however this one deserves it. I called ahead to make sure they have valet parking as I refuse to park in SF especially in union square. They assured me they have Valet parking and to just pull up to the front when I get there and even gave me the cost of valet for the time period I would be there. First of all you’re not supposed to turn on Powell so you can’t get to the front of the hotel, unless you’re a commercial vehicle. So I called again and they once again said to just pull in front. I did. There is no valet and when asked the front desk about it there was zero interest in the issue. I just parked in a garage a block away, fine whatever. Front desk agent was super friendly and did his job well. The room was clean so no complaints there. Wi-Fi was spotty at best. Shower didn’t have much pressure and by the time I was done I was standing in two inches of water, so the drains were clearly not working properly. The heater/air conditioner didn’t work at all. On top of all this I asked for a view of the city which I was assured of before booking just like the valet which was also a lie. I refused to complain as I am not seeking anything free, but my advice is for the $400 dollars I spent for a MONDAY night you can find something MUCH nicer! I won’t be going back, and will recommend against it to anyone who asks.

Aspiration isn't enough to get Villa Florence over the hump on being a four-star hotel. They have a long way to go. Great option for budget travelers - just don't think you're getting a superstar 4-star deal when you get this one cheap on Priceline. It's not that it's a bad hotel - it's just not a 4-star. The room I had was OK though I had to go back to the front desk to get a different room after the first room triggered my asthma. The overhead fan and light wasn't working and the AC, while ultimately effective, runs all the time. There is no desk for working. The real thing that irritated me about this hotel was having the picture of a guy giving the Slobovian Death Hand hanging over my bed. Whoever made the decision to buy one of those for each hotel room either must have been exacting revenge against management for some unspeakable sin or was doing a family member a favor. Perhaps the Russian mob was involved. In any case, a fine place, safe, reasonably clean and great location - just not four stars by any stretch of the imagination.

Friends told us that they had stayed at the Villa Florence and it was nice, so we booked it. Good: Location, quiet, comfortable bed, clean. Bad: Small, dark room; window has view of a dark brick wall. We felt like we were in a cell. I asked the desk clerk if I had booked directly with the hotel instead of going through Trips.com would we have gotten a better room and she responded "yes." It is not a 4* hotel.

Room was just okay (or slightly under ok). Staff was so sweet and helpful. No frills indeed. No outlets in our bathroom or near our bathroom worked, the room smelled musty, we had to tie back one of the lights that hung above the bed b/c its so low it was almost on the pillow, no blow dryers unless requested, A/C was a window unit. Loved the decor, it just wasn't functional. The lobby and hotel bar was clean and nice. Its an average room for an average price in a great location. I would still return.

Decent enough hotel but no frills. The name is misleading as it bears no resemblance to Italy and is not anything like a villa. Clean but basic. Small room with only enough space for 2 double beds and a small walkway between them. Tiny bathroom. Tight for family of 4 but great location and did the job. No breakfast provided and bar was closed when We were there.
