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.

Our room was a spacious corner room, over looking the Peace Park in Japan town. The lobby and bar area were neat and there was a super little garden just outside.

I definitely would recommend it to anyone and will stay again on our next visit to San Francisco! Read less

Stayed 2 weeks to reunite with my s/o after being apart for nearly 2 years because of the pandemic. The spacious room and shower were very useful, although it would've been nice to have another table other than the desk, with all that available space. Anyway, it's right in J-town and a convenient walk from the J-town mall, convenience stores,… Read more
Stayed 2 weeks to reunite with my s/o after being apart for nearly 2 years because of the pandemic. The spacious room and shower were very useful, although it would've been nice to have another table other than the desk, with all that available space. Anyway, it's right in J-town and a convenient walk from the J-town mall, convenience stores, and grocery stores. It was perfect for us, as we just walked everywhere. Most of the time it's real quiet at night, which was a nice surprise. I distinctly remember hearing crickets as I laid in bed, how soothing! Read less

Loved the Hotel Kabuki! Cool vibe in lobby. Amazing gym. Hip bar. Doorman, front desk & housekeeping were all so friendly. Great location - walked to many amazing restaurants. Our room had a terrific view. Love the hotel/experience.

Japantown was a new experience for us, and a fun one. Hotel Kabuki is a nice one too, doing their best during covid. Beware if you need to use the one handicapped parking spot available. We did, but weren't able to because several times cars without a placard were parked there, despite a valet service presumably being aware or involved. Although… Read more
Japantown was a new experience for us, and a fun one. Hotel Kabuki is a nice one too, doing their best during covid. Beware if you need to use the one handicapped parking spot available. We did, but weren't able to because several times cars without a placard were parked there, despite a valet service presumably being aware or involved. Although our party did have a placard, we had to park on the street, making it more challenging. Not cool. And unfortunately, this is what we'll remember about the lovely Hotel Kabuki. Read less

Very service oriented. Accommodated a last minute need for a rollaway bed and, when we realized we had left a shirt, they found it and agreed to send it to us.We will always stay at Hotel Kabuki in SF.
