Hotel was not honest, it charged my room twice, no refund till now not as they promised. They recognized their mistake before I checked out and provide me a paper that they reverse the amounts and with unreal code to provide it to the bank.

Villa Florence is a descent hotel if you are looking to stay close to big name shops and union square. Not as quaint as some of the other San Fran neighborhoods but close to shopping and transportation.

We enjoyed being centrally located in the city. The restaurant recommendations were adequate. We enjoyed the room, which was nicely layed out with plenty of character and charm. Everything was very clean and well stocked.

The hotel is in a great location, very convenient to restaurants, attractions, etc. The room was serviceable and the staff were friendly and helpful. My only issue is that there is no vanity space in the bathroom so if you do hair and makeup in the morning it will be awkward.

This was my 3rd trip to San Francisco in 6 months, and I love this hotel. Quiet clean rooms, although small, and the location is in the heart of Union Square. Lots of shopping and restaurants in walking distance. The hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

The rooms are very small, so don't expect to have a lot of room to yourself, and if you are traveling with others, you will probably be getting in each other's way. This being said, the building seems a little dated, but it was refurbished well. The furniture is new as are the mattresses. The staff is helpful and friendly,...

Great location to explore both the city and the bay area. The famous trolley cars stop outside the hotel and you are just metres away from the main square to jump on a bus for a city / bridge tour. The hotel itself is very quiet which is ideal in a busy city, rooms are nicely decorated and the beds...

Location was fantastic! I won't stay there again....no frills. It's the basics and if you're ok with that, it's worth the value. They really try and there is a lot of effort from a tech perspective and they try to reach out. Check in was strange. Check out was good. Beds sucked!! Bathroom was very small and old. Meets the...

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
