This hotel feels so much more worn and tired than our stay 3 years ago. Fortunately they are starting to renovate. The first room I was giving was very sad. I went back to the front desk and mentioned that the room was too worn and they very nicely upgraded me to a sauna suite. This room was much better...

The staff was the nicest and most helpful ever! The price for the room was reasonable, location great and convenient and the spa was lovely. We had a great view from our room. They served us Sake upon our arrival and had a great coffee and water at your disposal in the lobby.

This hotel has been undergoing a renovation for the past few months. It's well worth the wait! I recently stayed in one of the renovated rooms (not that the non-renovated rooms were unacceptable by any means) and wow. This place was already a gem. Now it's even better!

We have to come to SF for doctor appts for my husband, myself and our severely disabled daughter every 6 months and we stay at Hotel Kabuki since there is a shuttle to the hospital. These are very difficult trips for us since we have to set up our hotel room like a hospital to care for our girl. The...

Got lost in the hotel their were no clear sign of where to go. Took us close to an hour to get out of the hotel and in to the mall. Balcony area was really sorry and it's connected with the other room. Nice if you have a group of friends or family in the other room but creepy if...

Overall reasonable, in a great location. Hotel seemed to be under renovations. Rooms need to be updated and maintained to complete the experience and exceed expectations. Approachable and professional staff, who could Benifit from talking about the hotel amenities, and handle clients in a mor individualized and personable fashion.

Thank you for your visit and insight. We are indeed working through a property-wide renovation, and we're sorry this and other amenities weren't shared as we would've liked. We'll certainly address the concern with our team, and we hope to offer you a more polished visit the next time you're in the city.

Nice room and friendly front desk service. The hotel is connected to a parking garage for $23/daily parking or have a valet provide your parking in front of the hotel for about double the garage price. The rooms were nice and the bathroom layout interesting to say the least.

My stay was pleasant, not perfect. Bathing stools were not available and the room couldn't be darkened during the day. The granting of a early check-in (one half hour) and a late check-out (one hour) was not exceptional, but considerate.

First impression of Hotel Kabuki - friendly front desk staff and complimentary sake at check-in - yes, please! We visited in April, 2017 - the hotel was under construction, so it was a bit of a maze to find the room elevators. Our room on the 8th floor was clean and boasted a wonderful view of surrounding Japantown. Now, the...

My friends and I got an amazing deal during the Cherry Blossom Festival. This room had a bath robe, clear shower, coffee maker, hair dryer, and an extra door for the toilet.
