Stayed at this hotel for convenience because the conference I was attending was being held there. The hotel staff were great and it was overall a pleasant stay. The rooms are dated and noisy however I was told there are renovations planned, however the largest disappointment was no food on property after breakfast other than a vending machine. After arriving late at night from a long fight I wasn't able to get anything to eat. The location being Japantown meant there weren't the usual convenient... Read more

I love the style of this hotel. I love the "Asian" feeling. Love the tub and sauna! Its so fun. The older rooms have good atmosphere, but no A/C, I really hated that and woke up grumpy and hot. I would choose one with A/C.

I had the opportunity to stay at this hotel. From the website photos it looked interesting. The hotel room was large and clean but it was also dated and extremely noisy. I could hear everything from the street especially the garbage truck at 4AM. There was breakfast but it was average for US$19. There is also a mini mall by the hotel with small stores and restaurants. I didn't eat at any of them so I can't make a specific recommendation. Overall this hotel is just ok.

Of all the many wonderful San Francisco hotels I have stayed at, this has become my favorite. The location is terrific and the valet parking is outstanding. The valets are excellent and take great care of your car. In addition, if you don't need in and out privileges you can take a short ride down the hotel elevator to the parking structure below and park there where the fee is less. There is also a shopping mall accessible through a door in the hotel where you can grab a bite to eat or do so... Read more

We loved our 2 nights at the Kabuki. The hotel is a lovely Japanese themed hotel. The bedrooms were well equipped, immaculately clean and quirky with the Japanese screens etc. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Its in the Japanese quarter of the city so not downtown but the public transport is easy To figure out - a 20 bus down then a 38 back and get off at Laguna stop.

We chose to stay in the family suite and were impressed with the spacious room and the comfortable beds. The kids enjoyed having their own space behind closed sliding screen doors. As previous reviewers noted, the bathrooms aren't the most up to date (hence one less star). However, it didn't detract from the experience of West meets East. We were surprised to find a sauna in our room. Wish we had time to give it a try. We loved the convenience to so many eateries! It was hard to choose wh... Read more

First, let me say that the positives certainly outweigh the negatives for The Kabuki. The location in Japantown is wonderful. It's a more upscale neighborhood than some of the surrounding ones. And at night, it is incredibly quiet. The hotel has a funky Japanese/modern motif. There are 10 or more sushi bars on the same street. So if you love sushi, you hit the motherlode! The staff is friendly and kind. The rooms are clean and bright. The beds are extremely comfortable. Some of the roo... Read more

This hotel seemed like something a bit different and fun. The check-in staff were very friendly. We were on our honeymoon but had kept fairly quiet about it the whole trip. But Domingo at the front desk greeted us so nicely and was very good at making casual conversation about what brought us to the hotel, unlike check-ins at any of the other hotels of our trip. We told him we were there for our honeymoon and he made us feel especially welcome. In fact, he surprised us later on with a bottle of ... Read more

After a very quick checkin, a huge room (2401) was given to us with two beds, separate wet/dry areas for toilet, bath, sink and sauna area. Everything was elegantly decorated and spotlessly clean.

Stayed here recently for a business trip. The hotel feels a little dated as if it's stuck in the 1970s. The design aesthetic is Japanese and the hotel has some nice touches but overall it feels like it needs a huge overhaul. The rooms felt the same way: tired and in need of a makeover. There is a restaurant for breakfast on site, that is ok but again nothing special and I don't think I would bother eating there again. Personally I just wasn't impressed and given the huge amount of hotel choice i... Read more

This hotel is an easy walk to Pacific Heights and Hayes Valley. The rooms are tired and the bathrooms in sore need of an upgrade, but for $200 a night in San Fran it's not outrageous.

Ok hotel with good and safe location in Japantown. Good value for money. Has all necessities needed, large parking garage, ok room service, large conference center. Improvement areas: rooms should be renovated fairly soon, gives less of a frech feeling, also rooms and interior are made with fairly dark colors making the rooms a bit gloomy. Breakfast very poor and expensive.

3 nights and four days to explore San Francisco is not enough and we would love to return, but not sure the same can be said for the Kabuki. It is reasonably close to the centre yet we still needed a cab both ways when going anywhere. Breakfast was ok but the worst aspect was the lack of car parking. You are directed to the neighbouring, public car park below ground, which charges $23 a night.

Hotel personal are the best-very accommodating. The rooms are totally clean and nicely appointed. Restaurants and shopping right next door at Japanese Center. The immediate area appears to be quite safe. Would recommend to all. Parking garage is right underneath hotel with elevator going up to the rooms.

Rooms are spacious and my rate was pretty decent. i had a small balcony and a traditionsl japanese tub that you could soak in. The gym at the hotel is enormous and very very good. only thing missing was a rowing machine. the hotel connects to the japantown mall which has tons of restaurants with various price points and lots and lots of shops. i dont think alot of tourists come too japantown which is a shame. only negative is there is no bar but you dont have to walk far to find one. also...

Hotel is a bit dated, but comfortable. I had to change rooms two times due to an issue with the tub drain backing up and the A/C in the other. Staff is good and willing to help. The area is unique and a little taste of Japan and away from some of the madness of Union Square, etc. The hotel has some good value and as someone who loves Japan, I appreciated how it was connected to the Japan shopping malls and grocery stores.

great front desk staff!!!!! I liked the zen lobby and the retro bathtub in the room. I just wish the valet weren't so expensive. I like the location, the decoration, and the people. aaa this wants my review to be longer, but this is all i have to say right now.

Well located near japan town, the RAMEN YAMADAYA SAN FRANCISCO CA 94115 USA is a must. We were there on our trip to the wet coast for our 16 years old daugter birthday and the hotel people were very friendly and our room was clean and spacious

After being informed of a new refurbishment we had some expectation for this hotel. Located in Japan town we knew it wasn't prime location for us but it was the cheapest option. The hotel had a bad atmosphere with dark interior. If we were in a newly refurbished room I dread to think what the old ones were like. Horrible view. Horrible staff (sent us in the wrong direction TWICE). Lost our bags in storage room & we had to go in ourselves to find them... what's the point in a bell boy? & on top o... Read more

I love this hotel. The rooms are small, but lovely (and the sliders open completely so fresh air pours in) and the stone deep soak tubs are awesome. The staff is lovely and attentive. The view of Japantown and the City is breathtaking.

We stayed six nights in a ground floor suite. We traveled with our teen daughter who slept on the pull-out sofa. The room's furnishings were a bit dated (couch was worn) but it was clean and comfortable. Large bathroom had a FANTASTIC shower with a large soaking tub (great for aching feet and legs after hiking thru the hills of San Fran!). There was also an in-room sauna that made the bathing experience great! Every request we made of the front desk (extra blankets and hairdryer) was speedi... Read more

Purchased this hotel stay through Travelzoo for under $200 a night, which is a good value in San Francisco. This hotel is recommended for those who have been to SF before. You're a 20 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf and not near Union Station, but it's peaceful and quiet in Japantown. I walked down to Golden Gate Park and to Lower Pac Heights. The common areas of the hotel are nice but the rooms a bit run down. The ceiling had obvious repairs, and the closet ceiling was in need of them. Th... Read more

We have stayed here before and love the location.........close to downtown, but a little less hectic. And we enjoy the ambiance and poking around Japantown even though we arrive by car not by plane. Unfortunately, some things are not working so well at the Kabuki these days. We can overlook that it is approaching the need for a major facelift. The rooms are feeling tired. But even though the staff seemed to be trying hard, there was a general lack of organization. I called ahead for parking... Read more
