This hotel is in a great location in SF and it has a lovely pool area away from the street. It is pricey but so is everything in SF. The room was large and comfortable but the door opens to the outside near the street side and garage..no view. Some rooms open onto the pool area and would be better??... More

DaVinciSF, Front Office Manager at da Vinci Villa, responded to this review

Greetings Reldas, Our hotel's layout is certainly unique but often times, it is the charm for our guests as it isn't quite the typical box style. Therefore, some rooms offer fantastic views of the bridge and courtyard while some may not. Having said that, we are constantly making upgrades to our room amenities and bathroom shelf spaces are being improvised... More

First, the good things: The room was clean and cool on an unusually hot San Francisco day. The staff at the desk were friendly and helpful. The parking was convenient and not too expensive.

I was so, so impressed with this hotel for the price and super convenient location! Our room was very spacious, and had a fantastic view of the bridge.

We stayed here for 5 nights while we toured the city. The location is good, about a 15 minute walk to the bay area. The hotel room was clean, but the hotel is a little in need of paint on some areas. They do offer a continental breakfast which does cut some expenses. It's expensive to stay anywhere in San... More

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.
