Pretty nice

Very helpful staff. When we first got to our room, we asked to change rooms because the ice machine was on the other side of the wall from the bed, rather than just moving us, the desk upgraded us. Rooms was nice, bed comfortable. LOVE the soaking tub, the whole bathroom in general. It wasnt the cleanest hotel room though.

Location is pretty much centre of the city, very convenient for those who like to go "off the beaten path" when they tour a city.
Adequate and pleasant

I stayed here for a long weekend and loved the location and the view from my balcony at night. The staff were friendly and helpful. Two things I remember not working for me: firstly the breakfast room was not in use at that time and secondly the internet connection was ludicrously expensive. However I would gladly recommend it.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Kabuki

Weekend Getaway

from YoshikoSacramento
Hotel Kabuki is the newly renovated version of one of my old standbys, Hotel Miyako. Now managed by the Joie de Vivre chain, Hotel Kabuki is a sleeker rendition of its former self. I loved the new decor. More, I loved the personal attention. Although the hotel is still rolling out its services, I like the idea of being welcomed soon after check-in by a tea cart with your choice of teas. The service was not available when we checked in, but we were the first to try the bath butler services. The assistant manager went out of her way to make the experience special by fulfilling my request for hot sake. Members of the Joie de Vivre Club receive a room upgrade, and we were provided with a suite for the weekend. This is not the fanciest hotel in San Francisco, but I think good service trumps almost everything else when it comes to a great hotel stay. I really appreciate that no one knocked on our door at 8:00 a.m. to hurry us out so the room could be cleaned. There were some rough spots, like we were missing some towels, but the hotel is still shaking out. I look forward to returning.

Zen-like stay

from CarmelCoasttraveler
We chose Hotel Kabuki for a two-night celebration of our anniversary because we love the Joie de Vivre hotel chain. Hotel Kabuki was yet another wonderful stay for us. We loved the quiet, Zen-like atmosphere of our room, the art-filled lobby, wine-reception, and wonderfully attentive staff. Our Japanese deep-soaking tub simply added to the atmosphere and our first evening was capped by an absolutely amazing dinner in their newly opened restaurant. The server, manager and chef were attentive—the food fantastic and all of it sustainably farmed, grown or fished. All of this located conveniently in Japantown near Fillmore Street. Fantastic value! We can’t wait to return!

A Nice Hotel

from TravellerC
I chose the Hotel Kabuki because we were seeing a concert at The Fillmore and wanted to be within walking distance of the venue. I made reservations through the hotel website. We arrived around 5pm. We
parked in the Japan Center Garage which has an entrance to the hotel. The cost was $15 for an 8-24 hour period. Which is not bad for SF. We chose to park here instead of trying the hotel parking after reading reviews. We saved ourselves time and frustation as the hotel parking lot is truly a small parking lot (appx. 20 cars).

Check-in was smooth and quick. We even received a complimentary room upgrade. The recent renovation could be seen throughout the hotel. The
lobby was beautiful and the room was great. The Japanese motif throughout the hotel has a very calming effect.

After checking in we headed out to find the venue and some dinner. The
Fillmore is about 5 blocks away. We were very comfortable walking around the area. We ate a Korean restaurant nearby the venue. It was quite good (but I've forgotten the name). We had time after dinner to walk around before the start of the show. There is a little mall near the hotel which has quite a few restaurants in it. We were disappointed we didn't think of walking through there first as there were quite a few restaurants we were interested in eating at.

The bed was extremely comfortable. So much so that I didn't want to get up in the morning. And the bath/shower was wonderful. We received complimentary passes to the public bath but were unable to use them since we were only there for the night. Hopefully next time. We had an ejoyable stay and look forward to staying there again.

Peaceful Oasis

from curlytop990
Newly renovated (Nov 1, 2007), this hotel has a calm adn restful Japanese decor. The new Lounge is wonderful, great sake and food selections. Safe place, and living in japan town was a great experience. Taxi's are available easily, and so is public transpotation, although I did not use one. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Renovated Bliss

from GochisoGourmet
We would only stay at the former Miyako Hotel while in The City. The renovation and renaming to Hotel Kabuki continued the great accomodations. With a central location, loads of parking (which is at a premium in San Francisco) and a newly renovated room, the Hotel Kabuki will continue to be our prime hotel in The City. Also got to try a Sleep Number bed that the original Bionic Woman espouses on those infommercials.

Patience rewarded with a serene performance

from Beryl_Markham
A fabulous renovation is under way at the former Hotel Miyako in the Japan Center, SF. It is now known as The Kabuki Hotel and operated by the Joie de Vivre boutique hotel group. The staff could not have been friendlier and more helpful. We were upgraded to a suite the night we checked in. We had reserved a JdV online special King view room with Japanese soaking tub. Unfortunately our upgrade was to a partially renovated suite, not in the view tower. The room was a weird combination of a tatami-room bedroom (bed on the floor) and a western-style bed in a room separated by shoji screens. The bathroom was a little odd, it had a flip down bathroom scale!? The brand new flat screen tv was not visible from the beds, or any other piece of furniture in the room for that matter. After some rearranging, one of us was able to watch tv comfortably. The (western) king size bed was comfortable, the room quiet and we had a great night's sleep. I'm sure this is going to be a very nice room when the renovation is complete.

The next morning I called the front desk and we were given the room we had originally reserved with no fuss. THAT room was fantastic, completely renovated in beautiful, soothing colors and relaxing textures. We had a view to the east looking at downtown SF. It was a very comfortable and elegant room, full of special touches, such as an obi decorating the top of the bed covers, Japanese pottery and sliding screens decorated with a Japanese Lord and Lady.

The Japan Town neighborhood is lively and full of wonderful places to eat, fun shopping at Ichi Ban Kan (the Japanese dollar store) and other more traditional Asian stores in the center. It is also within walking distance of the Filmore shopping district with again, great eating, drinking and fun shops to explore. This is a great alternative to the noise and bustle of Union Square. Discover a different San Francisco neighborhood!

Comfortable stay, nice amenities at the Hotel Kabuki

from hola_y_saludos
I just returned from a three night stay at the Hotel Kabuki. The hotel was convenient to lovely restaurants in the Japantown area, as well as close to the Filmore district for shopping and more lovely restaurants.
The bed was comfortable with soft pillows, and a nice treat was the japanese style bath with deep soaking tub.

I was there for a conference, the conference facilities were nice, as was the catering. I especially appreciated the free wireless internet access and the business center.

Wonderful hotel!

from HoosierProf
Hotel Kabuki has a wonderful, peaceful ambience and an attentive, friendly staff. I would love to stay there every time I go to San Francisco!

problematic stay!

from wstmark
Having just undergone rennovation there was no room service, no mini bar and alarms that went off in the night. The restaurant is currently closed. The neighborhood closes early and by 8pm there is no local convenience store, you need a cab to get a soda!

Great Hotel

from Texican56
Rooms were as promised, beds comfortable. Parking limited but public parking is below building & $15 per night, no in/out. You can usually park at the Hotel during the day and when you come in for the night - park in the public garage..Cash only.

Top Local Tips for San Francisco

Tour San Francisco by Segway! For something a little different, consider the evening Segway tour! A thouroughly enjoyable 2+ hours! We had never been on a Segway before...but these people get you trained and confident before hitting the streets. Their Web site is:

A perfect tour for teens We wanted to do a tour of San Francisco that our 15 year old son would also enjoy. We signed up for the SF Electric Company's Segway Tour. It was the best part of our son's trip! He loved the Segways and immediately was proficient (and in less than 15 minutes of practice, so were his two parents). The orientation and safety training was much easier than we thought, and we were soon following our guide out on the waterfront. Although you don't see as much of the city as you would on other tours (the Segway's top speed is 8 MPH), it is an experience all in itself. I am sure we are in dozens of other tourists' photos - so many people took pictures of us on the Segways and even ran along side of us to ask questions. (We took public transit all over the city the rest of our visit, so felt like we "toured" anyway).

Bring a sweater or fleece Always bring a pull-over, jacket, or something to keep you warm. It may be sunny and nice in the afternoon, but most of the time you will need something warm when the fog rolls in around 6:00.
