“Loved our stay!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

My kids and I stayed three nights and loved the Da Vinci Villa Hotel! It's half a mile from Fisherman's Wharf, we walked but you can catch Bus 47 ($2 adults, 75 cents kids). The room was super clean, the staff extremely friendly and helpful, the POOL IS HEATED AND JUST AWESOME! A great plus is their BREAKFAST BUFFET!!!! It is good and varied, DELICIOUS, even the coffee was good and I am very picky about my coffee! Two thumbs up for this place. For the price and location, you can't beat it. We plan to make this our every year hotel visit to SF. Good, clean room, heated pool, delicious breakfast, great price, what else can I ask for?!

Stayed July 2014, travelled with family

We stayed at the hotel for four nights 26-30 June 2014
No complaints at all hotel in a great spot to get to fishermans wharf we would catch the 47 bus for two dollars. Hotel staff are all lovely can't do enough for you. Pool was cool but still nice and lovely area to sit around.
The room was nice bed very comfy was a bit hot but the view of the Golden Gate Bridge was a great distraction.
Had a lovely time would recommend this hotel to anybody

Stayed for 7 nights. I had one of the rooms not facing the street & my neighbors were (thankfully) not noisy, so I am quite satisfied with the room. Tea/ coffee provided & replenished every day. Shower can do with a bit more pressure, that's for sure. Breakfast included & if you're happy with muffins/ waffles/ cereals, it is OK. If you want something meaty for breakfast, best you head elsewhere in the morning. Staff was very helpful & efficient, a big plus in my books. Close to the Wharf, lots of restaurants/ pubs around.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street if you want to get some peace & quiet.

I wanted to be within walking distance of the Marina and Fisherman's Wharf. It's got some good restaurants and bars nearby. It's also right next to a bus stop that will take you directly to the Mission which is very handy.

The hotel is pretty simple but the bed was very comfy and the staff were great and on multiple occasions helped me out.

The breakfasts weren't great but that wasn't a big deal for me.

Room Tip: Some rooms have A/C. Normally this isn't needed but during unusually hot periods, you might want...

Uncontrolled noise levels meant no sleep. The room was stuffy and made worse by the standalone air conditioning in the room being loud and ineffective. Two power shortages in the room was two too many. The room had two safes but no fridge and no guide to hotel services. Being kept awake into the early hours of the morning for two nights by the raucous noise of other guests was most annoying. Staff whilst polite and apologetic were ineffective in preventing this noise.
The location of the hotel was ideal, one street away from great eating places and within walking distance to many attractions
