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.

Great and helpful at reception. Hotel layout a little strange but it seemed to work ok. Room was large, well lit and clean. Huge bed, plenty of hot water. Great heating as it got cold at night. Breakfast was not very exciting, but ok. The restaurant staff were always in a hurry to clear up and get you out. Not...

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...

This hotel is ok if you don't plan to stay in your hotel and just want to explore the city. Fisherman Warf is within walking distance . I think it was about a 20min walk. . Some streets require you to walk uphill. But my husband found a route and took us to the hotel without walking those streets. This...

If you are looking for fancy, this place is not for you. Very basic amenities, and basic rooms. A great place to spend a few days while exploring the city. Public transportation is very convenient. Within walking distance to cable car and multiple bus routes. Complimentary (continental) breakfast is decent but nothing fancy. Property is old and they have attempted...

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.
