Great location to explore both the city and the bay area. The famous trolley cars stop outside the hotel and you are just metres away from the main square to jump on a bus for a city / bridge tour. The hotel itself is very quiet which is ideal in a busy city, rooms are nicely decorated and the beds...

Location was fantastic! I won't stay there again....no frills. It's the basics and if you're ok with that, it's worth the value. They really try and there is a lot of effort from a tech perspective and they try to reach out. Check in was strange. Check out was good. Beds sucked!! Bathroom was very small and old. Meets the...

Slightly drab but old style and very quiet boutique hotel well situated in Union Square just a few steps from the Cable Car.Excellent room but with no outlook and rather noisy air conditioning. The young staff were delightful and the little extras in reception of fruit tea coffee,sweets and cold drinks were all appreciated. Would stay here again.

Service was perfect. Also loved the location a lot. The room was a little small however we were there very little. Smelled good. Clean. We'd go back in a heart beat. Loved it. The bakery next door is to die for.

Great location, good service, the bed was clean and the bed is great. All perfect. One suggestions, regarding the parking, need to let the guess when book that they can turn on that street and park in the white line for valet parking.

It's in a perfect location for tourism, the beds are good, the bathroom are small yet good, and it's good for the high prices in San Francisco, i'd advice to clean the windows better, and using something to cover the space between the doors and the floor, it's very big, you hear the noise from outside, and see the light...

The location is great! Close to shops, restaurants public transport. The room is small but it's what I expected. The bathroom could use an update (queen room on the 4th floor). Made it especially cramped with the crib for our baby. Noise from the floor above as hallway heard but my baby went to sleep at 7 every evening so...

This hotel is in heart of Union Square and within walking distance to many San Francisco landmarks and neighborhoods. The onsite parking is very expensive so we opted to park in a garage a block away for 60% less. Hotel staff was friendly and upgraded us to a room with a king instead of a queen. Rooms were quiet and...

This hotel is in a good location for exploring San Francisco. We actually walked to the Golden Gate, but it took most of the day! The room was comfortable enough with coffee making facilities. They leave a tempting tray of goodies ( until you check the prices then you put it to one side!) Behind the check in desk there...

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
