loved it”
staff was VERY helpful and efficient. They hustled to give us an early (10:00am)check in so we could leave our bags and take off for the day. Rooms were well appointed. great bedding. Loved the decor. We had a room on the 7th floor with a very pleasant view. great light. We loved the location: Quiet yet close to Japan town, Filmore, Pacific heights etc. Great walks. we will come back for sure !

Not a great experience”
We booked a room with a king bed, when we got there is was a queen bed and very uncomfortable. We told the front desk and they offered some wine or money off, but late at night you just want to get what you expect and pay for. Disappointed

Perfect for the value”
Free internet, really nice staff, free wine hour
Our stay was pleasant, mostly due to the nice staff. We were disappointed to learn their was not a free breakfast although the site that we booked through said there was. Our in-room radio and tv remote also didn't work, but we didn't give the hotel a chance to fix these since we were staying such a short period of time. My last complaint is that the hotel itself didn't have a restaurant, but there is an independently owned Japanese restaurant in the building that doesn't satisfy. The pros: We were happy that it was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the room was nicely decorated. We were glad to find on-site garage parking even if we had to pay for it. It was a short walk to places to eat and some shopping. The free wine hour was lovely as well as the nicely decorated lobby. You can check out free bicycles to explore the area from the front desk. For the price, it was nice, but the staff really treat you like you're in a 5-star hotel, which is rare these days :)

cute hotel”
the location is pretty good. You can reach to Filmore st by walk and its not very far from downtown too. The surrounding is quiet and cozy. The staffs are also very helpful!
Room is bigger than you can expected. its bright and i really liked the colors and paintings of the wall. But i cant say the price is resonable since the hotel price of SF is way too expensive. The dining room atmosphere is not bad but please please dont order Japanese food. I had Kyudon for 10$ and it was my worst Japanese style meal ever...!

Great hotel condition in a nice neighbourhood”
Great hotel condition in a nice neighbourhood
Forget about the ridiculously-priced paid parking when you can park your car along the street at night. Hotel Tomo - a Joie de Vivre Hotel is situated in a nice Japanese neighbourhood so you would feel safe during the day and night. Book this hotel only if you have a rental car with you throughout your stay. Better than any hotels in the city centre where parking is difficult to find and expensive. Hotel room was comfortable and spacious. Generous with amenities was a plus point. Clean and good for a few nights' stay.

hotel tomo”
location, style and accessibility
Over all it was good, there was an earthquake and no tv cable access so the hotel allowed me to hire a movie and gave me a refund on it. The hotel is clean and modern, the cleaners did not refresh the toiletries even though they were used (before I stayed by the previous occupant)

Design Hotel, but incomplete”
Amability of the staff, location, japanese restaurants all around
it used to be a Best Western and they are in the process of making a design hotel out of it. the room was large with Japanese style furniture and fixtures, although it still had the old Best Western carpet. The structure of the room is very eighties, so not very functional for nowadays needs in terms of power outlets, bathroom look,... Bath amenities are great though,...

Mixed feelings”
Weird, wacky, but only somewhat wonderful
I travel to SF frequently, and I normally stay at a different hotel, but this one had a better price and I decided to try it out. The hotel itself was a little run down, but the room was large and very comfortable and super clean. I liked it. Overall, it was very Japanese –– a little weird and wacky, but only somewhat wonderful. I was planning on staying there again, until I had a terrible encounter with one of the staff members, who was very rude. I emailed the manager, and he offered me a discount on my next stay, if I returned. I'll have to think about it.
