What they don't tell you is that to get to the 5th floor you have to take a special elevator. The room had a room with actually a nice view but people walk right by the window in the walkway and can easily see into your room. This is really a place that is operated by Asians and they are...

Greetings Beverly, Our guests shouldn't have to find their way to their room themselves and I have shared your feedback with our agents so we can ensure that we appropriately guide our guests to rooms. We have only advertised what we provide as our service and quality but I do apologize if you had a different impression. I wish you...

I booked this hotel just for few hours, however, when i got there the place was horrible, and its employees even worst. I checked in, went to the room, nobody helped with my bag, either show me the route to my "room" (which is very inconvenient) you will have to hold and carry your heavy luggages, take two elevators until...

Greetings Lina, It's truly disappointing for us to hear such negative feedback about our service, which we pride ourselves on. If you could please let me know directly, who the particular employee was, I would like to get more clarity from both sides and take the necessary corrective measures. kkhandwala@davincivilla.com Thank you, Kunal Khandwala Front Office Manager Da Vinci Villa

Not all that...Stayed 2 nights here with my wife and was truly disappointed. The only reason for the avg rating is it's location. The staff was courteous, but not very helpful, they did their job with a smile and that's about all. Not enough parking for all guests, so they give you a print out of a parking garage 6...

Greetings Paul, We are deeply regretful of not being able to provide the great experience for you that would make your trip more memorable.

Firstly the positives Good location about a ten minute walk from fisherman's wharf. The reception staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel itself is very basic. The rooms are tiny and offer no sound proofing from neighbouring rooms or outside so it was quite noisy at night. The bathroom was old and needed a bit of a better clean. The...

Greetings, We understand that expectations from our guests will always be different and we are always up to the challenge to meet everyone's tastes and preferences. In the city, during major events, the value proposition does become and challenge and as you rightly mentioned, straight comparisons are then made to bigger hotels in Vegas or other destinations.

The folks at the front desk were extremely helpful, very knowledgeable about the city with great advice. The hotel was a bit noisy, the A/C was a portable unit that was pretty loud and the ice maker on the floor sounded like dishes breaking in the middle of the night. Even the loud A/C unit couldn't drown out the noise....

Greetings Randy, We will promptly address the issue of the ice machine's noise which shouldn't really sound the way you had described it. We do apologize for that and you shouldn't have to drown out any noise whatsoever.

I've used HOTWIRE since before 2010. My trip to San Francisco will be the LAST time I use it. What a shame, because my previous experience was positive. Hotwire claims it was a 3.5 star hotel. It's a 2 star at best. It's a MOTEL (exterior hallways - get the picture). We work hard for our family vacations. We got...

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.

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...

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.
