          9.2

          Very convenient and the staff was always following up to make sure we were enjoying our stay. Very convenient due to it's proximity to Japantown and Fillmore street.

          The bed was not that comfortable

        • Family with children
          6.4

          Location was close to major tourist attractions, such as Fishermen's Wharf, Lombard Street. Also located within Japantown, which has an interesting array of Asian restaurants at affordable prices. Room was decently sized with 2 queen sized beds that were clean and comfortable. We like the bay window within each room, as it was a cozy corner for reading. The reception was helpful, and was able to direct us to several good restaurants in the vicinity. There was also a cozy restaurant in the hotel which served a good breakfast menu.

          Hotel website stated that daily parking at $25 was available, and free wireless internet access was available in all rooms. Unfortunately, upon check in, we were told that the car park was full and directed to another hotel's car park which charged $16 per night and additional per entry and hourly charge during the day. We were also unable to access the wireless internet services, as the hotel reception told us that Apple products (Ipads, iphones and MacAir Book) were not compatible. The reception tried to help by moving us to another room that was adjacent to the one housing their modem. Unfortunately, that did not work either.

          Good location. Really close to Japantown. Room is not small compared to other hotels in sf. Ok level funiture and amenities. Clean linens. Nice coffee.

          Hotel parking was full and we had to park in the nearest parking in Japantown. It's absolutelly not convenient. Wifi was slow but somehow connected

        • Family with children
          6.6

          Great friendly staff, easy reach to buses that were on time, good connections. The area has many good places to eat at - if you like Japanese food like me. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel has a nice restaurant - a bit pricey to the ones 25 meters away, but packed full every night with Japanese ex-pats so its probably good.

          There is not much to be said of the decoration - its mainly wall paper with a cartoon like theme. The rooms are as mentioned before old, but an effort has been done to uplift it. The hotel logo is a promise that does not fulfill.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Design and decor was visually interesting.A Few blocks from Fillmore street with lots of stores, shops and dining options

          In any city parking can be a hassle. Being able to park under the hotel was nice but $25 plus tax is a bit pricey.

        • Single

          The downtown location provide more convenience,Japanese decoration can make oriental guests feel comfort

          Room got some noise

        • Family with children
          9.6

          The room we stayed in was nice and cozy. The design and color combinations were pleasing. Our kids loved the place. Staff were very courteous and helpful. Hotel location was also excellent in the heart of Japan town offering Asian setting. It is also very near Fillmore St where young urban professionals frequent the place for good food (French breakfast, Italian pizzareas, cafes) and night drinks.

        • Couple
          10.0

          The Hotel had a very modern japanese pop culture theme. Anybody who enjoys anime or similar interests will have a great time. The hotel is located in the center of Japantown, which is a small but interesting section of the city. It is also easy to reach practically any section of the city through public transportation. The staff is super friendly. Everyone from the people at the front desk to the houskeeping staff were helpful and courteous. We had a very pleasant stay and would definitely stay here in the future.

          It is an older hotel so the walls are a bit thin, so you can hear people in the hallways and the elevators. Unless you are a very light sleeper though it shouldn't be a problem as it was pretty quiet. They do provide free wi fi throughout the hotel but in our experience it was kind of slow. They even have 3 free computers in the lobby but I found those to be even slower then when using our own laptop in our room.

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          Proximity to the Fillmore Auditorium since I was there to see a show.

          It's a bit pricey.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          lots of things to see and do including fun restaurants within easy walking distance.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          The desk clerks were warmly welcoming. The parking lot is located on the ground level of the hotel. The room was fresh and clean every day. Fresh towels as needed, extra toiletries. Very comfortable.

          The bedspreads slide off the bed during the night.

          - Terribly nice and helpful hotel staff, design of the room

          - very slow and hardly available wifi on all 4 days of our stay

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Friendly staff, clean room, convenient Japantown location, good Muni bus service to downtown, good value.

          Noise transmission into room from adjoining rooms and hall .Automatic door closers should be adjusted to prevent door slamming. Room temperature control via thermostat did not appear to function.

          7.0

          Funky modern design, good location for Japantown. Nice view

          Check in was slow and room is pretty spartan, if "funked up" with Japanese kitsch. Although we ordered a King we got two small Queens

          Very well located...professional staff, very clean and friendly hotel. Japantown is the best and safest way to discover San Francisco. Free Wifi and lcd Tv: Simply perfect

          Rates are excluding taxes and city tax, so please pay attention to final total
