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.

Very limited parking and outdated slow ev chargers but no dedicated parking for charging; so always occupied by non-ev vehicles. No service except for one person to check in and out. That was the only employee we saw during our 3 day stay this April. No bar or restaurant service not even for providing drinks and food to take to the room while all restaurants and bars n San Francisco were open for outside and inside service. “Breakfast” was provided at the front desk; every day the same a very small amount of yoghurt and granola and a very small apple. Total lack of hospitality. Read less

This hotel has some of the cutest decorations and style that I've ever seen. You truly feel like you're in Japan. The lobby is just a pleasure to be in, and the workout facility is better than most gyms I've been to. The room was cute and clean, and the customer service was great. Would recommend and will be staying again.
