Nice little hotel, cost wast higher than expected because of add ons. It needed a coffee shop . There was no food available except for the local restaurants which were always packed. The local coffee shop did not open until 9 am.

Stayed here on a recent business trip to San Francisco. Staff was so helpful and polite and the decor is gorgeous. Love the book filled lobby and bar. Room was also spacious and beautiful including huge shower and bathroom. Would definitely recommend this place!

Great location! Was able to walk to shops, restaurants, movies, parks and just generally enjoy the atmosphere of San Francisco, California, USA. The Japantown Mall is a lot of fun to browse the shops and have a bite.More

No tub in the room, but a epic huge rain shower that I could have spent all morning under.

I believe you could make the shower a sauna, however the room was so hot it was already like a sauna. I'm exagerating, however the shower was large and had a seat in it like you could make it a sauna.
