Stay somewhere else
The room is. Nice but the mattress was sagging. Rowdy folks next door resulted in calls to security who failed to handle The situatiom so it was difficult to sleep.

Well situated
We have stayed here often over the years as it is a pleasant, if not outstanding property, that is superbly located for our needs. As a boutique the rooms are smaller than many other properties, but quite adequate. I preferred the previous iteration but the current arrangement is quite acceptable. Rooms are nicely appointed and include an honor bar option. The dearthof charging stations is a bit of an annoyance and convenience receptacles are in short supply or difficult to access. Main option is in the bathroom. The location could not be better for shopping and public transit. It is on the Powell St cable car line, Muni (bus and rail) are a block away, cabs abound. Macy’s is across the street and Westfield Mall is down one block. Moreover, entertainment abounds nearby inc live theatre, movie complexes, and music options. I can recommend the property w/ confidence.

Hidden on the cable car line
The hotel is nice, in an old building. Maybe they're going through a change, but I didn't see any signage, making it hard to find. You walk into a bar/restaurant area, so the check-in desk isn't obvious. But once you figure that out, it's great! My room overlooked Powell Street and the cable car line, so it was a bit noisy, but not too bad.

Villa Florence San Francisco on Union Square, San Francisco
I had previously stayed at the hotel several years ago and had enjoyed it. The decor reflected the name of the hotel....Italian Inspired. Since its remodel and the closing of Kuleto's restaurant the decor is not at all comforting. The loud shocking design does not lend itself to a homey environment. The mattress was fine however the plastic lining under the sheet was terribly uncomfortable and I did not have a good nights sleep at all. Parking was also a huge problem. While I understandd it is holiday season, there was not place to pull over to get valet parking as the 3 speaces were taken. It took me an hour to try to get a spot in fron of the hotel and finally gave up and went to California garage for self-parking and walked to the hotel. I will never return to the hotel and do not at all recommend.
