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 had a wonderful trip to SF. Hotel Kabuki contributed to that memorable experience. Sitting in the heart of Japan Town was amazing. Check-in and Check-out was easy. The staff was friendly and my room was clean. This was the first Hotel I have ever visited that had Netflix available for in room entertainment.
