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.

I stayed here for three nights due to work. The staff was pretty nice all the time and overall is a nice Hotel: clean and comfortable. Breakfast menu was quite small for my taste but fruits were fresh and I loved the coffee (strong). Across the street are located two great asian restaurants which I enjoyed a lot. Location is OK as well.

We hadn't stayed at Hotel Kabuki for a number of years and were quite pleased with the current hotel, its new decor, the facilities, and its very helpful staff. It has a great location in Japantown, near the restaurants and shops of Fillmore Street.

Our room was large as was the shower and TV. The room also had nice views over the city. The lobby and bar area had a nice ambience and in relation to San Francisco prices it was excellent value. It is easy to get from the Kabuki to the centre of the city. We would certainly recommend this hotel to all travellers.

We were lucky enough to stay at the Kabuki Hotel, in Japan Town, San Francisco. It's a great location, as everything is within walking distant. We had a wonderful afternoon at Golden Gate Park and some delicious meals at area Restaurants. The Hotel is beautiful; Asian inspired artwork and styling throughout.

One of the most delightful hotels in San Francisco. The ambience of the interior design is striking with its mix of contemporary Japanese/industrial hip. I would recommend this hotel to the anyone who ha a yearning to be sent into the mystery of Japanese interior decadence.
