The room was clean and kept up each day, and the staff is very friendly. If you're used to a cool room while sleeping, don't bother staying here, the room has an AC unit, but it wasn't really effective. The bed was very comfortable, our room had a shared balcony, however if you stay on the lower floors you'll hear sirens all night. The hotel is right next to a Japanese shopping mall, so there are some great restaurants and shops to visit. I would recommend you do not eat breakfast at the restaurant on the lobby level in the hotel unless you're very hungry. The continental breakfast was $19, and the food wasn't that great. There are plenty of cafés and dinners nearby that have better food for a better price.
This place definitely was an experience! We booked a king bed room with a city view and ended up on the top floor. The view was amazing! The room was clean but felt cluttered by frills. The honor bar and mini bar were expensive considering the availability of these items within walking distance of the hotel. Water bottles and sleep aids for sale on the night stand. I suppose it's convenient for someone who wants to pay up for it. Wish the mini fridge had space for my food and drinks. The complimentary WiFi wasn't strong enough for us to stream Netflix and we didn't want to pay $7 for the high speed access to find out if it'll work either. I'm assuming a big hotel with a lot of professionals staying at it has a lot of people tying up the bandwidth. I specifically booked this to have an out of this world experience. They advertise the spa and complementary bathhouse but do not tell you in advance that the spa is actually only open to women/men/coed on specific days nor did the clerk offer/mention it while checking in. I did however enjoy the extra deep soaking tub in our room. My husband wasn't fond of the super short shower head though. I booked this hotel knowing I was going to be eating out in the area so I did not partake in the $17 continental breakfast offered by the restaurant in the lobby. It seemed extremely expensive for the offerings it had. For our stay we used the valet parking for $50($41+tax). This was a first for us so it was pretty weird to have someone park our car in a spot we drove by in the entrance. We were coming and going a lot so it would've been nice to have the option to just have a reserved parking space instead of the whole valet thing. It felt especially weird when they insist on getting your car when it's maybe 15 steps away. The staff operating the valet through the day were very nice and courteous though. I think we saw 4 different people operating the valet in one day. A conference was being held in the meeting rooms during our stay and we didn't feel welcome to look around the hotel. The building and facilities have a lot of artwork and nice Japanese features to look at. The ambience is enjoyable. This hotel is a great location and really a reasonable price for the area and amenities. Enjoyed walking around the Japan mall beside it and going to Benkyodo for fresh mochi.
Very enjoyable experience; enjoyed the Japanese ambiance. The restaurant staff was expert and attentive. Mady on the breakfast acknowledged me being a repeat customer and made me feel welcome. Recommend this hotel to those looking for a new experience in SF.
Beds were OK. Lobby and room decor was nice (modern Japanese style). A/C system was very weak. Whenever we came back to the room, it felt so hot and stale. You need to put your room key in the wall to activate the A/C, so it's probably a good idea to have 2 key cards. We left our A/C running while we were out, to help cool the room down, but it was still pretty warm when we got back. Temperature-wise, of course it's better and more comfortable at night, but it's pretty miserable during the day. Walls are very thin; you can hear other people's conversations very clearly. Best thing about Hotel Kabuki is the location. Amazing location. Great restaurants, cafes, bakeries, Japanese shopping malls all right next to the hotel.
