Villa Florence Aug2019”

Staff exceptionally professional and attentive to staff needs. Breakfast available: items are quite typical ... egg and meat dishes plus danish coffee fruit yogurt etc ... but the quality of hot items and use of real plate was much more in keeping with quality restaurant food vs. perfunctory buffets served in many global or national chains. Location quite good. Many street people in the area, but not more than around all other facilities in the city. Police presence makes it a safe enough area with reasonable cautions about not venturing out alone down back alleys/questionable areas after dark. Bathroom is compact but very clean and usable. Room spacious with desk space, refrigerator (though full of drinks they hope you will consume and pay for), and lounge chair plus usual TV etc. Internet service worked ok . Note: If pay for room through travel site you will still be charged another $30 or so per night fees at the hotel per fine print.

EXCELLENT staff. Perfect location within walking of BART and MOSCONE”

Was there for one of the many conferences I go to throughout the year @ Moscone. The reality of SFO is that it is an overpriced city that it deteriorating in quality with an increase in homeless population and smell of urine on the streets. Its really sad. The price of hotels is ridiculous SO, when I find a place that allows me to forget all that and get a Great night sleep and provides me with a relaxing stay where I simply don't think about how much the room cost, I'm VERY HAPPY. Villa Florence has done that, several times. I'll be back! Recommended.

Just need to know the extra daily charge”

The room rate you see before reserving this hotel is not the only charge per room per night. You just need to add the daily surcharges. For us it was about $29 per night. It's in the fine-print so don't get upset when you have been warned here. I have seen unaware guests getting upset at checkout time. Also, when the daily charge is being explained at check-in. I know this charge could add up if staying for multiple days. Other than that, this hotel is ideally located if you want to spend most of your time near the Union Square area and downtown Market Street area. It is a quite a hike to Pier 39 and Fisherman's Square but doable. If walking to Lombard Street windy hill, be prepared to walk up some hills. (It's also doable but wear comfortable walking shoes).

Great location altough there is a lot of homeless in that area, they don’t bother you. Friendly staff. Nice lobby. Our room and bathroom were very small but we don’t spend much time in so it didn’t bother us that much. The bathroom wasn’t very clean. The cable car is right on the street,so very practicle (take the pass at Walgreen’s,much cheaper than paying each time). Lizzie ´s bar is a couple of blocks and you get a nice view of the city. Cheesecake Factory in Macy ´s on 8th floor as a terrace.

Sweet funky spot full of history and nightlife”

I stayed here for NYE and really loved the visit. For a holiday booking and right at Union Square - I thought it was pretty decent price ... What I would expect to pay looking for something last minute on a holiday. The decoration was nice ... staff very friendly. I thought though maybe it could have used a closer dusting and vacuuming but over all pretty clean. I appreciate the vibe they are going for and would stay here again.

Watch out for the hidden fees!”

We like the value and location of Villa Florence but got hit by hidden resort fees after we got back, despite confirming with the staff at location that we had nothing else to pay, after paying Agoda an all-inclusive price with fees and taxes. Took us a bit of wrangling to get our money back, but only because we noticed the extra charges in our credit card bill. They did not even send us an invoice to notify us of the charges. However, the staff was extremely friendly and it's really close by Union Square and the BART station.

Great location for the price, easy access to everything you need in SF. The rooms are slightly outdated and the hotel has no amenities besides a bar. Some staff were nice to talk to and some were just plain rude. If you’re looking for somewhere to just rest your head and not spend too much time then this is a great place! But if you want the hotel experience this is not the place.
