Villa Florence San Francisco on Union Square, San Francisco
It did the trick...
Pretty expensive amenity fees for no pool and little options in the hotel, but OK overall. It is in the heart of the city so lots and lots of bums around!

Villa Florence San Francisco on Union Square, San Francisco
Very Good8.0
Great location, staff was very helpful and pleasant. Michael, Jose and Philip went out of their way to ensure we had a great time in SF. The hotels' restaurant was under construction and only 1 elevator working during our stay. Hotel is tired, but served our purpose as we were only looking for a place to sleep.

Last minute get away
Pleasantly surprised! Very old hotel with an updated charm. Only one, very ancient, elevator operating and unfortunately that too broke down. All in all a great experience.

Villa Florence San Francisco on Union Square, San Francisco
The stay was great, but beware of extra charges. For my 4 night stay I was charged an EXTRA $215 on top of what I paid on Then they also put a hold of $100/per night on my card. Very upsetting. Thought I'd get a good deal via Otherwise, hotel was a great stay. Great location. Great room. Make sure you ask questions! Or else there will be mystery charges!
