Cute overall, but not as clean as I would have hoped - like perhaps new carpet had been used to cover up very old issues. Odd smell in the hallways and especially in the elevator. Good locatiojn and housekeeping staff were extremely efficient.

Great location, just off Union Square. Powell cable cars rumble right past the front door. Rooms are comfortable. Powell Street-facing windows could use heavy curtains; street lights coming through the shutters create quite a bit of light. Or, bring a sleep mask! Staff is very friendly and helpful. I'd stay here again.

Spent more than we hoped for our 4-night stay, however we do know the location is prime. Room quite small, but likely to do with the era of the building. Clean, good service, and great location. Cable car right outside hotel. Can be noisy but you become endeared to the city noises! Lots of characters out after dark, but didn't...

Had a great check in experience. Did have to call multiple times to get a replacement towel for a stained one left after cleaning. Elevator is a little scary with all the jumping it does. The room was comfortable, the heater made a lot of noise though. Great neighborhood, very walkable, proximity to Muni/metro. Overall we had a great time.

Got a junior suite at the 7th floor. Room was spacious, clean and quiet at night. Steps to union square and cable car powell station. Excellent location.The hotel is in an old building so the wood trims and floor are a bit worn and floor may be squeak to step on. Only downside is why $35 USD is charged per...

I really loved this hotel and its location. You can get the cable car right outside, and there are cafes/Starbucks/Walgreens within a block which is helpful for travelers. We had a room with 2 double beds that was bigger than I expected. It also had a walk-in closet that we kept our bags in and used for changing. The only...

A Valet employee named (Daniel) was extremely rude. You would expect to have excellent customer service in valet for $60 a night!! I was very disappointed with the service. Will never stay here ever again.

You know the place has absolutely no amenities when they list the brand of shampoo/lotion under their list of amenities. The room had no extras at all. I was under the assumption that upon arrival there would be champagne and chocolate, but there was none, not that it's all that important but it would have been nice. The bed wasn't...

Victoria, It certainly sounds like we did not "wow" you, and I'm sorry for that. There is sparkling wine upon check-in at 5:00-7:00, sounds like you may have checked in at a different time. And there certainly is to be coffee in the room, I will follow up on your room. And there also is complimentary coffee in the business...

My wife and I enjoy this hotel very much! Sarah at the front desk was wonderful. She greeted us like family (the kind that you like, not the kind you avoid). She also greeted us by name every time we walked by for four days. The room was charming. We will be back!

This hotel more than met our expectations. We have stayed here before and had a good experience as well. The hotel is on Powell, same street as the famous trolley, which we took to the wharf on one of our days. Hotel staff were very pleasant and professional.

So pleased you were able to enjoy your San Francisco trolley experience, directly out of our front door. And thank you for the other comments as well, the staff appreciates it.

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
