Nothing too crazy here - not wonderful. Not horrible. Nice for the price though, I will say that. I paid the same amount to stay at a horrible hostel-turned-hotel in LA. This place seemed like a palace in comparison.
Great hotel. A little out of the main stream traffic of the city, makes for a quiet stay. Four blocks away from main shopping, food and transportation street. Bus stop at hotel front door. Had a great time once we figured out the bus routes. Differently buy the all day bus tickets.
It's a very cute and posh hotel with Japanese architecture, landscaping, and furnishings and yet it's very modern. It has all the amenities -- free wifi, a little fitness center and a business center where you can print out your boarding passes for free. The room we were in was very comfortable, and what I love was how efficient and thorough housekeeping was when cleaning our room.
The bathroom is very interesting --- the toilet is in a separate room so if one wants to shower and the other wants to do a #2, it's possible. :)
It's located a few miles away from Fisherman's Wharf. Very walkable but there is no issue flagging down a taxi. We could hail one in seconds.
As it is in the heart of Japantown, you will have a plethora of sushi and ramen restaurants to choose from. Every meal we had was either sushi or ramen. I loved that about this place!
And it's pet-friendly too!
The staff is warm and welcoming. They attended to our every need (and anticipated a few of them too!). They are the reason why I constantly stay at Kabuki Hotel whenever I'm in SFO.
I am somewhat familiar with the area. I have logged many miles walking in the vicinity and my priority was to not spend a great deal of time and effort looking for street parking that wouldn't earn me a ticket. There are a number of properties in the area, but off-street parking was the difference maker for me. The property was in a great location. A bus line that runs down near Ghirardelli Square has a stop at Polk and Pacific. A trolley stop is 2 blocks away as well. There is a spot that serves a quick bite for breakfast, right on the corner. I didn't eat there but during my 3-day stay it was fairly busy every morning. I took my daughter and brother the 4 block walk to Toast Eatery for a sit-down breakfast which is more to my liking. As you noticed I had my teenage daughter and my brother with me, so I had a variety of concerns when booking. The property and our room was CLEAN and QUIET. We had plenty of towels, but two main issues. The shower didn't allow you to make the water hot. If you turned the knob towards the hot side, the water got cold, if you turned it to the cold side, the water got cold. When you left it straight up, the water was just warm, and after a long day my back wanted me to be able to choose just how hot I could handle. Having a teenage daughter along, I didn't bother to complain. The mattresses of the cheap inner spring variety and took some getting used to. Location, cleanliness, and quiet. I was pleased based on what I paid.
breakfast is good. bed comfortable. bathroom clean and nice. the area is "tenderloin". wiki tenderloin san francisco you will understand. Suggest get uber taxi if you come back late in the evening. Do not walk around at night. not feel safe.
