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.

Breakfast was pathetic with just an orange and yogurt, could have provided pastries. I'm a first responder and asked if I could have discount but they are not interested. That showed they are more interested in profits.

A very nice hotel in a great location in San Francisco. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. In our room the toilet had its own small room and the door to the shower was glass and did not afford much privacy from the rest of the room. The staff were super friendly and helpful.

Mr. Nikolai and Ms. Katherine were very friendly and courteous. Conveniently located across the street are restaurants and a corner store for snacks and amenities. Would definitely recommend this place to coworkers and friends.
