Hotel Kabuki

Japan Town, San Francisco

The hotel

This hip boutique hotel marries East with West – and, somewhat handily, is in the middle of Japantown. As you walk in, you'll see the Japanese-inspired décor and funky artwork. Step outside and there’s a beautiful Japanese courtyard garden with koi pond. There’s a cool lobby bar to hang out in too. Enjoy an exotic cocktail and grab a book or board game from the library – they have free WiFi too if you need to catch up with things back home.

Not too many “extra features” like pool, room service… but the expansive lobby and surrounding gardens, koi pond, are all so nice and just enjoyable to be around. The rooms are comfortable, bed is extremely comfortable, and the views from certain rooms are absolutely gorgeous during the day and night. I love this place and will return whenever I… Read more

I was traveling for business and enjoyed the stylish lobby as a place to sit with my laptop in a quiet, well lit and super comfy chair in the lobby. The room was quiet, well appointed and had the greatest shower I have ever seen in a hotel (giant rain head and high pressure hand held). The gym is also fantastic, huge, has space for every kind of… Read more

We booked Kabuki because of its location in Japantown, over the more sterile Grand Hyatt in Union Square. Great choice - if you love Japanese good and shops, even with COVID impacts, it was a great location to stay at. Be aware of the Consulate Suites. I would book the same room type again, but be aware that the photo in the website leads you to… Read more
We booked Kabuki because of its location in Japantown, over the more sterile Grand Hyatt in Union Square. Great choice - if you love Japanese good and shops, even with COVID impacts, it was a great location to stay at. Be aware of the Consulate Suites. I would book the same room type again, but be aware that the photo in the website leads you to believe they are new/modern rooms. They are not, but they’re very large and well-appointed. If you book them, be ok with a bit of a funky/edgy vibe. We have stayed at the Park Hyatt Tokyo and other luxury properties around the world, as well as more Courtyard By Marriotts than I care to recall. Still, Hotel Kabuki is a refreshing find - it’s different, very comfortable, well- located, and just plain fun. Read less

Excellent hotel with great customer service, stunning design, amazing gym. There was free coffee maker, a delightful lobby, clean atmosphere, and the customer service was second to none. They were understaffed so we had to call for room cleanup, but we skipped as it’s just a waste of water and there were already plenty towels. Thank you!

My wife and I are from the Bay Area and we will often stay at the Kabuki when we feel like exploring SF as our home base. The staff is friendly and the remodel is tidy.

It is also somewhat central to the city so going anywhere else is a short trip. Read less
