Definitely not worth the money. They got the reservation wrong and tried to downgrade me from a two bed room (which I paid extra for) to a single queen room. Rooms were TINY, bathroom was so small I couldn't even barely turn around in it. The air unit was messed up and going all night long, and the curtains were...

Room was small and had an old carpet smell. Great location. The staff did a great job cleaning the room but the smell would take a bit more work. the hallway had a smell too and in the morning there were flies at the entrance. really strange.

I have stayed here a few times on business trips because it's one of the less expensive 4-star hotels in the Union Square area. The hotel feels older, but they do the best to keep the rooms modern and updated with big TVs and good charging stations. I'm giving it a 5 point rating primarily because of the excellent value....

We have stayed in 5 or 6 SF hotels, all within four blocks of Union Square, including the Clift, Fusion, Post Hotel, and three or four others. This hotel has the friendliest and most helpful staff of any we've stayed in. Big TV and nice room. The AC/Heater unit was either malfunctioning or just impossible to figure out when we...

This is the second time that we have stayed at Villa Florence. I really like this little hotel! The room decor is great. I only wish that we had asked for a room with a view (other than looking at the side of another building). They were letting us check in early so I didn't want to complain about the...

My sister and I stayed at the Villa Florence hotel for 3 nights last January. There were 2 identical bookings. We had required a quiet room and twin beds. The first night we had a nice room with twin beds, as required. The following day, as we came back to the hotel, we were asked to move to another room!...

Great location and solid boutique hotel as a base to explore SF. Would recommend for business and personal travel wiithout hesitation. Front rooms are a tad noisy but all part of the charm of the city of SF.

Went for a romantic valentines weekend. We had a nice time. The service was good and the rooms were clean. Location is great in Union Square. Not to many amenities, but the hotel was good. Plenty of restaurants and bakeries and Starbucks close to the hotel.

We live in Sonoma, an hour north of the city. This hotel is located centrally, to many great restaurants, and events. Feels like a trip far away yet so close to home. Seriously, you can't beat this place for the S.F. experience. Only wish the bathroom WS a bit bigger, no place for a girl to put her make-up bag...

The hotel was a perfect location for the shopping, sie seeing and restaurants. It was also convenient for our family to see the Chinese New Year Parade. It was a busy weekend, we requested a room in the back of the hotel. Our reseptionist was very accommodating to our request and gave us a great room.

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
