Cool hotel - good value”
large room, cool design, well equipped
Check in staff were friendly and efficient. The room was large, clean and had some cool design features (like lamps and fittings). The bathroom wasn't the most modern but was clean and worked well. Vending machines were all out of water when we stayed but no big deal. Long walk or short-ish cab ride to main tourist attractions. Pretty good location, especially if you have a car. Slightly disappointing to pay an extra $30 odd bucks for parking but seemed to be the going rate in SF - hotel was good and let us leave the car in the garage later in the day well after check out.

Very quite comfortables rooms”
Japan town, so many nice restaurants, so clean quite its just wonderfull place
Hotel room was very comfortable, big two queen size beds, nice tv, nice view i mean i really liked it. Japan town is just a great place to be in, san francisco can get to you, but japan town just puts you in the zone you feel everything is ok, such a clean and elegant part of town i love it. I liked it all Hotel and the area around, buss is just in front of the hotel, 7 minutes you are in union square, just 2 dollars ride.

Good and friendly hotel”
Not a tourist trap -- good value for money
The hotel was pleasant with a manga style for the nostalgics of the 90's. The cleanliness could be better but nothing awful. It is easy to ask for a shuttle to the airport that is going to cost . The neighborhood (Japan town) is also nice. The restaurant on the first floor is decent. I Will definitely stay there again Good if you are looking for a compromise between price and good standards.

Value for money in convenient location”
Clean rooms, friendly staff and close to all attractions
If you are looking for a great location away from the tourist traps, this is it. Rooms are very clean, staff is welcoming and helpful and within walking distance you can find great restaurants, cafes and boutiques. A bus stop is across the street and within 5 minutes you are at Union Square. Internet access is provided for free.

SFO Japantown Tomo Hotel”
Wonderful location in Japantown great movie venue and fabulous Japanese restaurants nearby. Also near Fillmore Street music scene and Pacific Heights neighborhood: Chic shopping, bars and restaurants. Bus transportation close by on Geary Street Nice sized rooms, clean and newly remodeled. Fair price Helpful staff
Steep steps at Lobby entrance. Dangerous when wet. Expensive parking.

Séjour très agréable”
- Accueil ; propreté ; grandeur de la chambre ; situation (hôtel, chambre) ; facilité d'accès.
- Prix du parking (20$/jour) ; insonorisation
Nous avons pu découvrir dès notre arrivée que nous ne nous étions pas trompé. Accueil parfait dans un lobby très sympa. Notre chambre, située au dernier étage (8ème), était très propre et hyper cool/tendance. Très belle vue sur la partie nord de San Francisco. L’hôtel, situé à Japantown, est très proche du Square, le cœur de SF. Les deux points négatifs sont l’insonorisation de la chambre et le prix du parking (20$/jour)

Mittelmässiges Hotel”
Bequeme Betten, grosse Zimmer, Bushaltestelle vor der Tür.
Das Hotel war ok, vielleicht etwas teuer für das was es wirklich bietet. Aber während unseres Aufenthalts wurde Hotel gerade umgebaut und darauf wurden nicht hingewiesen, wir wussten nichts davon. Um zu frühstücken mussten wir ständig aussenrum gehen. Sonst war es im grossen und ganzen ok.
