                  Fabulous Hotel in an Excellent Location”

                  We spent 3 nights here in June for a 1st time stay in SF. The Donatello was outstanding in all respects. The room was large, clean, and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location can’t be beat - just one block from UnionSquare and an easy walk to Chinatown and mass transit. Highly recommend!

                  Donatello the name evokesnotions of history (or Ninja Trutles...) and the Hotel likewise is charming in an old fashioned way. The Owners Association is like a downtown club that would have been very trendy in its day, like much of Frisco.

                  Everything about this hotel was great: the staff were always kind and courteous, as were the other guests (we're not used to such friendly guests); the location was excellent, near public transit and really good restaurants, and our room was spacious and very comfortable. We will definitely stay here again the next time we're in SF.

                  The rooms were huge for the price that we were paying in a city location. The hotel is within walking distance to the shopping area including Westfields mall. We did not have a chance to try any of the facilities but the staff were friendly and helpful. There were also hot drinks provided in the lobby the whole day.

                  Location very nice, rooms okay, but you have to arrange a lot yourself.”

                  We stayed for 3 nights at Club Donatello. The location is perfect and the price is okay. You hardly can get better in San Francisco. But do not expect a pro-active team at Donatello. Just some examples; the beds for the kids were not made up. Not even the sheets were there. Back to the desk and arrange. The breakfast card is not replaced after you use it once. Back to the desk and arrange. The remote control did not work, no batteries... Back to the desk and arrange. Suddenly there is an extra charge for the car 'oversize car charge' which is nowhere displayed. So yes, the hotel is okay but be sure you check and arrange everything yourself. The personnel itself is very friendly but, at stated, nothing is done if you don't act.

My issue was that the hot water and TV went off around 9.30pm one night and they didn’t have anyone available to fix till 7.30am the next morning! How can you not have access to an emergency engineer! Staff in general helpful.

                  Amazing Location”

                  Very close to Union Square with Macy's, Westfield with plenty of dining options. We were a little confused by the fact that there are "two properties" within one here. To clarify, Club Donatello is located on the higher floors of the building while The Donatello is on the other floors. All services and facilities are shared though. We stayed in Club Donatello where the rooms take on a more traditional style. Next time we would probably go for The Donatello instead but we stilled loved our stay. Word of advice, the sofa beds are very uncomfortable so book two rooms if you have more than 2 people. Thank you to all the kind staff who made our first trip to San Francisco even better!

There was plenty of mirrors and lighting for 3 ladies to dress every morning, which is unusual. The hotel was within walking distance of major attractions and nearby restaurants as well as car rental agency. Would stay there again.

                  Stayed 3 nights in June 2017

                  Great location some room for improvement”

                  Location is excellent, right on Union square and easy access to trams and hop on hop off buses. Room did not have the two double beds we expected which we had booked, sofa bed was uncomfortable even at 5ft tall was too short and was not made up for our arrival. Desk staff not particularly helpful when approached, and we were not informed on checkin that we needed to pre order included breakfast to our room before 2:00am. All this aside room staff and catering staff were very nice though food choices were limited for people with food allergies.

                  Great Stay at Club Donatello”

                  It was the staff who made the entire stay fantastic, they are very accommodating and helpful particularly Fatima and Mdm Zenaida. Great location, walking distance to Union Square, with nearby cafes, convenience store and laundromat. Free flow of coffee, tea and infused water at the club room.

                  Great place to stay”

                  We found this to be an excellent place to stay while visiting San Francisco. The location is perfect in Union Square, close to public transport, cable car, restaurants and shopping. Approx. 15 min walk to Pier 39. The rooms are spacious, it was the best bed I have slept in for a long time. The turndown service at night was an unexpected surprise. The staff are very friendly and happy to help with everything. The Club Lounge on the top floor was excellent and we arrived in time for a Wine and Cheese evening on Friday - these are held every Friday I believe. There is a gym up there along with a sauna and hot tub. There is also coffee, tea, hot chocolate and iced water available for guests at all times. We were able to make use of the Club Lounge after checkout and prior to our late night flight which was fantastic as we could freshen up after a day of sight-seeing before our flight out. We loved our stay here and would definitely stay again when we are next in San Francisco.

                  great location - large rooms, very well maintained, 1 block from union square. Friendly and professional staff and a terrific Italian restaurant to boot. Rates are similar to other hotels in the area, as is the 35 dollar per day parking fee.
