The hotel was clean, nice and in SF.
But it stops there.
The rooms are laid out in a maze, its hard to find the various rooms, stairs and elevators are not placed at any sensible level.
And then its the naighbourhood. Its a bit off. Not to may restaurants or bars sourounding the hotel. You have to travel some blocks to get to any sensible food/drink action.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing off the main street and off the pool.

Dear Einaravh,

Thank you for taking the time to review da Vinci Villa Hotel. We truly value the opinions of our customers and we apologize that we did not meet your expectations. However, there are many restaurants and bars in walking distance around our hotel. Some of our guests also mentioned that "We have a great location which is close to Tourist Attractions, restaurants and bars."

If you ever come back to San Francisco, I would love to have the opportunity to speak with you directly, so please call me at 415 529 2612 or email me mkobak@davincivilla.com.

We hope to see you again in the future and wish you the very best.

Best regards,
Murat Kobak
Operations Manager

It is evident that the da Vinci Villa Hotel in San Francisco has invested in renovations and while it is a comfortable hotel some of its age is revealed through frayed seams in the hallway carpet and elevators that are slower and creakier than one would find in a Soviet era apartment elevator in Russia. The rooms are clean and comfortable however the blinds of the sliding windows allow the morning sunlight to invade the room.

They offer a heated pool that for my taste was a little bit too heated, not particularly refreshing, as I like after spending the day walking around the city. The pool area is very nice with comfortable new deck furniture.

During our five days, the advertised vending machine was out of service and a second ice machine was not made known to us until we called to inform them that the first ice machine was not working. One of the antiquated elevators was out of service for about 24 hours.

They offer a complimentary continental breakfast, which is nice in a room that will soon become a full service restaurant.

The da Vinci Villa is one of a few hotels that are mixed in among a residential area. From the hotel it is an easy ten or 12 minute walk to Fisherman’s Warf but other than that it is not within walking distance of any restaurants or shopping areas save a corner convenience mart. Public transportation is available and adequate to get anywhere in the city.

The staff was very kind and somewhat helpful although it seemed at times as if the right hand wasn’t sure what the left hand was doing. We were told of the aforementioned ice machine on the third floor but not about the one of the fifth floor and the signage is vague. We were informed that one city tour bus was a better value than another only to find that the first tour company had raised their rates unbeknownst to the counter employee.

I may not sound like I am very high on the da Vinci Villa but I really did enjoy our stay. I believe that they are still reestablishing themselves and I expect improvement to be forthcoming. The difficulty for me was that it seemed as though they presented themselves as having a higher level of product and service than they did and they were priced accordingly. San Francisco is an expensive city, I get that but I am confident that better accommodation values can easily be found.

This is an older hotel, showing a bit of wear but clean and well looked after. Beds are comfortable, free breakfast is a bonus...BUT get a room away from the road. the hotel is on an intersection and even though our room is on the side road the noise funnels up and it is loud!!! Trucks seem to go all night but traffics starts about 5am, lots of revving, horns and braking, I wouldn't come back myself but aI do live in a very quiet area. If you are coming ask for a room at the back of the hotel off the road.
good location. Bus stops right outside, Polk St restaurants only a 5minute walk way, as is the cable car, you can comfortably walk to the harbour as well.

Room Tip: Back of the hotel, off the road would be much quieter

We stayed one night and there were 7 of us. Our room was huge with 2 queens, a king and a pull out couch and two flat screens. Very nice room, updated and clean. We did have to call to have a refrigerator brought up as well as extra towels and coffee. Pool was great too. This place has on site laundry, free breakfast, cafe. Close to wharf, bus line. Parking was $30 a night which I found to be a lot! Cost was $336 total for 6 adults, great deal. I would stay here again!
