"Fun and funky"
My first trip to SF to take care of business at Federal courthouse. Needed to be close but stay out of the "not so good" area. This was just outside that area. The employees were pleasant , friendly and extremely helpful. The room is on the small side but we didn't plan to use it except to sleep. Flat screen TV, refrigerator, from the 12th floor we […] had a nice view of the SF skyline. Bathroom was big enough included a tub and all expected amenities including robes. There was room service from Morton's Steakhouse but we didn't try it. We did take breakfast at a little bistro a couple doors down which was good. They have a connecting door to a bar/nightclub but we didn't check it out. Did all our traveling by Uber which was great because SF driving is crazy. I'd go back there, next time to do more walking and sightseeing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice place to lay your head."
The Kensington Park Hotel is just 1/2 block away from Union Square. It is tough to beat this location. It is an older hotel, but is maintained well with an extremely friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Union Square - Great Location"
My overall experience with this hotel is this, when I first checked in I thought the staff was rude, however later changed my opinion about that. The Hotel is in a great location.This hotel does NOT HAVE air condition so if you go during the summer ( it sucks) but you will have a ceiling fan and you will be able to open the window. I stayed on the 5th […] floor and I could hear NOTHING. The rooms seem pretty quiet, however I was told my TV was too loud. I watch TV late at night and was told that it was too loud. ( really??) Last is that for the location its GREAT, San Fran overall has many problems most with the homeless and this hotel is no exception you will see them hanging out all day and night. ( its a San Fran problem not a hotel problem) The hotel if you can get the room for $200 a night its a great deal. They claim the rack rate is $799 per night ( so NOT worth it). There is a self park next to the hotel use it and don't valet you will save $20.00 per night Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We always stay at the Kensington Park on Post St. Always a great experience and very friendly. A $10 cab fare to almost anywhere.Thank you for a great stay. See you soonGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Accommodations were just terrific; so close to theater district and convenient shopping to Union Square; every one there was so pleasant; will come back again and again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great location. nice hotel. no hot water"
would be an easy 4 star if there had been hot waterGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Kensington Park Hotel Dear Andrew, Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that your stay was not as enjoyable as you may have expected. Please be advised that we discovered a boiler malfunction that caused the hot water issue. The repairs took place on the following day. Best regards, Samantha Dark Guest Relations

Response by Kensington Park Hotel Dear Lynda, Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that your stay was not as enjoyable as you may have expected. Best regards, Samantha Dark Guest Relations
The Hotel is in a great location. The staff was very accommodating, but the hotel itself is very dated and needs a lot of work to bring it up to a four star rating. I would probably give it 3 stars based on the physical condition.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Half a block from Union Square"
The hotel was super convenient to Union Square -- it is half a block off of Powell. It was clean and the staff were friendly. It was a nice boutique hotel, but a bit dated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great staff was friendly and helpful. Easy check-in and check out processesGenuine Expedia guest review
"it was ok."
Just wildly overpriced... but probably about average for the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Kensington Park Hotel Dear Kay, Thank you for taking your time to post a review about Kensington Park Hotel. All feedback is very important to us. San Francisco during the summer months and into September is a very busy time for the city and unfortunately hotel prices do reflect this. We hope that the next time you choose to visit San Francisco, you will decide to stay with us. It will be delightful to welcome you back! Sincerely, Samantha Dark Guest Services
"Worth the splurge"
I usually hunt up deals to find cheaper hotel options while traveling - the point is the city, not the room - but for our romantic weekend I decided to splurge just a little for a nicer bed. It really wasn't much more expensive than other hotels in the Union square area, and the lobby was lovely - plenty of chairs to wait for the other couple who stayed […] at Mark Twain (cheaper, but smaller room, less desirable neighborhood and tiny bed), a gorgeous king bed that we slept amazingly on, and a shower with new fixtures and great hot water pressure. Lovely and relaxing! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
WAS EXPECTING SOMETHING PERHAPS A BIT MORE UPSCALE FOR THE PRICE, BUT AFTER ALL, IT WAS 1/2 BLOCK OFF UNION SQUARE. BEDS WERE VERY COMFORTABLE WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF PILLOWS (TWO CHOICES - BOTH DOWN & FIBREFILLED). THE ROOM WAS VERY CLEAN AND NICELY APPOINTED, AND THE HOTEL STAFF COULD NOT POSSIBLY HAVE BEEN NICER OR MORE HELPFUL. WOULD DEFINITELY BOOK […] THIS HOTEL AGAIN! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

My staff commented about how run down the property was, and one of the guests complained about a massive wad of caulk in his bathroom. Another guest had foil around the bottom of her radiator. I had people from Chicago, NYC, DC and Boston staying there last week, and the only good things they had to say: the beds were comfortable and the people were […] friendly.

We had a Great stay here and will be back. The building is older but has been maintained/updated. The best part is the staff - extremely pleasant and helpful. Location is great 50 ft from Union Square, 2 blocks from China Town - we walked to Fisherman's Warf through Chinatown and then on Columbus Ave everyday (2 miles roughly - nice to lose weight on […] vacation).

"One Night at the Kensington"
The location is excellent and parking is convenient. Afternoon sherry and tea is a lovely touch and the small lobby is elegant. The room, however, was a disappointment. The only window looked directly into the windows of a racket club. The 3 of us, (Grandmother, daughter, and 14 year old boy) were crammed as if sardines. I recommend this hotel for singles […] or couples only Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"The Three C's: Comfort Convenience Caring"
Our stay here was more than satisfying. Our bed was so comfortable, the location was near perfect, and the staff was very helpful, especially Chad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good one night."
Always wanted to stay at this hotel. Lived in San Francisco and had friends stay here. Worked next door at Farallon and have gone to plays upstairs. Loved that I could finally stay there. The property is very unique and perfect for our visit. Joshua at the front desk was great when we checked in and the doorman was very helpful as well. The room was […] very clean and quiet. As it is a charming older property expect to have few outlets for plugging in your phones etc. Expect a tiny bathroom but everything worked for the most part. Would definitely consider staying there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Style - the oldfashioned way"
We had a great stay. If you are looking for some brass and marble, this is the place to go. Even if not always completely polished. Rooms are well equipped, nice linnen, comfortable beds. No breakfast, but around the corner is "Sears" - a great place to be. Location is at Union Square - can't beat it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Location - Fine Hotel"
The location of the hotel is very convenient and the staff is helpful in planning events and dinners. The rooms are on the small side and there is no a/c. We did not need a/c on our trip but it can be loud with the window open. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance and the public transportation options are nearby as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I wanted a hotel near Union Square. This hotel is within walking distance to the cable cars, bus lines, and shopping center. I enjoyed the historic archetecture. If your are looking for a small hotel with historical charm, this is it.Genuine Expedia guest review

"We'll be back!"
We will definitely stay at the Kensington Hotel again. Our room was clean & modern, staff very friendly & efficient. Location is centralized to everything! Great starting point when we would head out on our day's adventure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent price for the location, needs updating"
The hotel staff was very friendly and the hotel had good qualities. We had the option of breakfast for the morning and they even had a bottle of sherry in the lobby for the evening. The rooms needed some renovation. It appeared they hadn't been renovated in a while. Overall the hotel was nice and in a good location for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, great staff & comfortable room. Since it is an older hotel, you get some of the quirkiness that goes along with it such as bathtub drains that don't drain quite as quickly as they should, but overall, it's a great hotel with a smaller, boutique type feel. And the location makes it easy to get to wherever you want to go in San Francisco […] :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Small Hotel"
It was a great hotel in the main tourist area. For me, I have been in SF many times so I would have liked to stay farther away from the tourist area, but this price was so great I couldn't resist! I liked being in a smaller hotel and felt very cared for. I would absolutely recommend this hotel if you are visiting SF for the first time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best hotel in San Francisco!"
My first positive impression of this hotel was the front desk. I did arrive prior to 3 p.m. and the young lady asked if she could hold my luggage and get my phone # in case the room was ready prior to 3 p.m. When I did check in Joshua was very helpful. The room was one of the best! Great hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel, fabulous price, and perfect location"
We stayed on the 9th floor during a heat wave. The only street noise we heard from the open window was the trumpet playing from Union Square. It was a great stay. The staff was courteous and always willing to help. The theater is on the second floor. A piano is on the bottom floor with sherry and tea served daily at 4-6 pm. The location was also gr […] eat!

"Great location, room was a little "tired""
I've happily stayed at the Kensington Park Hotel 3 times before. However, this time I must have drawn their worst room (#10). The carpet was buckled and badly in need of stretching; the glass bathroom shelf is installed at an angle so everything rolls off, rendering it unusable; the top drawer of the dresser was not usable because it falls out - just […] to name a few things. Should have tried to change room, but husband was immovable. Not the hotel's fault but, like in Manhattan, there is a lot of noise outside day and night, so next time try to get a higher floor to abate the noise. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beware climate control"
Expedia claims climate control but no a/c and very old and tiny rooms. Also no fitness facilities and no room service. Won't go back.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Close to shops and restaurants."
Great stay. Quite hotel with great views of the city. Late, noon, check out allows an easy morning and a nice brunch nearby before leaving the hotel. Smaller room size not for spending very long time there. But one would be out enjoy the city, shops and restaurants anyway.Genuine Expedia guest review

Quaint hotel right around the corner from Union Square. The lobby was done up in 1800s style decor and was absolutely enchanting, and between 4 and 6 pm they serve complimentary tea and sherry. The rooms were a bit more modern, though they did have a couple of pieces of antique furniture. The beds were comfy, the staff was friendly, and the hotel is […] pet friendly, even going so far as to have a welcoming bowl of water and bucket of treats for canine guests. No AC, but it wasn't that hot during our stay and the ceiling fan was good enough for me. The hotel was also close to a bus stop as well as a cable car stop. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great location next to Union Square."
Hotel was easy to find. Extremely hard to get parking in front of hotel and they advise you to double park and wait for valet to come out. Parking lots in the area charge $30 overnight and here they charge $40 or in my case $45 for a truck to valet it(found a dent & paint chip after picking it up on last day). And they advise you it Staff was very helpful […] and friendly. Hotel has a classic charm and full of history. They have a computer available for use in lobby and free WiFi. We got a room with 2 double beds. Beds were extremely small for my family and no pull-out couch bed. Room was small with a table, dresser, and chair. Bathroom was nice with gold plated handles. Overall very clean and not bad for a hotel in a great location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
