Breakfast buffet was healthy and very good. Room was clean and bed very comfortable. Lobby was fun and comfortable.
No door on bathroom so if sharing room and turn on bathroom light you wake other person. You could not shower without waking other person. Door needs to be moved to offer more privacy. Would have like to have bathtub, too.
I think the hotel has increased in price too much since last year.
The room was great. Great facilities.
Love the hotel even more now with our second stay! We stayed at the hotel prior to its renovation and we already loved it. After the renovation, the hotel is simply chic, cool and amazing! I love the location that it is in Japan town and Kabuki spa is right next to it. When I booked the hotel, I didn't expect the renovation to turn out that great and when I was staying in the hotel this time, I loved the design. I will definitely book again for my next San Francisco stay.
Nothing. Everything was great!
The staff always goes above and beyond expectations. We’ve stayed at Hotel Kabuki dozens of times and are never disappointed.
Japanese influence and hip interior make for a charming and characteristic ambiance at Japantown's Hotel Kabuki, a Joie de Vivre. The stylish boutique hotel underwent a $30 million renovation in 2018 and now attracts a mix of leisure and business travelers with its trendy spaces and loft-feel.
Away from the crowds in the heart of Japantown, Hotel Kabuki is right next to Japan Center, a shopping area with a variety of inexpensive restaurants, a Kinokuniya Bookstore, and shops with Japanese antiques, bonsai trees, and more. The popular Fillmore District is a 10-minute walk from the hotel. The boutique hotel is positioned in a great location for accessing many of San Francisco’s major attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Haight-Ashbury.
Accommodations are small but stylish and make efficient use of the space. Natural light pouring through floor-to-ceiling windows make the rooms appear larger and some feature private balconies for extended views. Rooms are well-equipped with all the modern amenities such as free Wi-Fi, 55-inch flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers, mini-fridges, electronic safes, and Bluetooth-enabled alarm clocks. Sleek, modern bathrooms have wet room-style rainfall showers and include hair dryers and bathrobes.
Hotel Kabuki, a Joie de Vivre offers an impressive set of amenities and features that are common for relaxation. The inviting lobby is design-savvy and features a bar with Japanese-inspired dishes and cocktails. Additionally, there is a Zen garden with koi pond and a fire pit, an impressive 24-hour fitness room, yoga studio offering free classes.
Situated conveniently beside the Japan Center, access to major attractions in San Francisco, and a pet-friendly policy makes this hip hotel an experience, not just a visit.
