Hotels in San Francisco can be pretty expensive. This was a jewel of a find - decent price, nice rooms, good location, heated pool, and a real breakfast included in the price of the room. Breakfast includes lots of fruit, cereal, pastries, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, and a waffle maker, as well as coffee and juices. My only complaint was...

Stayed here for 2 nights. It was great value and in a nice location, about 20 minutes walk from fishermans Wharf. The staff were very nice, breakfast was OK, all pastries. Rooms were huge but a bit dated.

Room was 4th floor, facing the back of the building. It was nice and clean and quiet. Staff was helpful and location was great. Breakfast was just OK. Facility was nicely maintained and I felt it was a good return for what I paid.

Being our first trip to San Francisco it was a task in itself deciding on which part of the city to stay in. I decided staying closer to the bay area was more appealing than downtown and I'm so glad I chose the da vinci villa. We stayed in room 414 waking up to a view of the golden gate...

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
