Nice boutique hotel close to Union Square. Perfectly located to get around easily - 2 blocks from BART and on the cable car route. We had a suite so I was able to have the bedroom and my adult daughter had a pullout couch in the living room. Small but comfortable. The decor was pleasant and the workout area offered...

Upon checking in the reception warned me that there is construction going on next door, but they reassured me that the construction starts at 6am. I am up by that time anyways, so it wouldn't bother me. However, the entire night someone was moving what seems to be some metal equipment, which made terrible noise throughout the entire night.

Great location, beautifully appointed, good service. But the the bathroom is far too small - there is no counter space anywhere and the toilet is positioned right up against the wall, so you must sit sideways to use it. Never again!

Villa Florence is located in an ideal location with easy access to public transportation, restaurants, and the waterfront. The rooms are small but plenty big for one person traveling alone. I loved the character of this boutique hotel. My only complaint would be the noise level, but that is to be expected in a bustling part of the city.

An individually styled hotel with a personal touch which adds to your San Francisco experience. Great service, great value and well located for everything in the city for both business and personal needs. Rooms are very stylish which make you feel part of the city as opposed to a chain hotel which once inside your room you could be anywhere...

We stayed in a junior suite which overlooked' the courtyard, which was just a rooftop where our room was. But I was glad I was not on the streetside as I heard from others it was noisy. AND the building next door is undergoing construction and was very very loud -- thankfully their air conditioning unit is even louder and...

My friend and I stayed here for one night. The rates are affordable and our room was really cute! We stayed in a 1-series room (a big corner room) and were very comfortable there. The staff are also friendly and helpful. We used the valet service, which is about $60 and we figured it was a good deal since it...

Villa Florence is a great little hotel. I travel to the San Francisco every other month. I've stayed at many hotels in the city. Some are too big, some are too snootie, Villa Florence is just right!

Stayed on the 7th floor. Nicely decorated. Beautiful bathroom. Staff as always makes our stay great. Location doesn't get any better. Firm bed. My only complaint and I forgot to mention to front desk, we had a very small room and an extremely large flat screen tv was put on dresser. It was too close which caused distortion for me....

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
