About Kimpton Buchanan Hotel, San Francisco

Anime-themed hotel by The Fillmore, with free bikes

Center of Japantown
Kimpton Buchanan Hotel is located in Japantown in downtown San Francisco, 4 blocks from The Fillmore concert venue and 2 blocks from the shops at Japan Center. You can reach Lafayette Park in 15 minutes on foot, and a 5-minute taxi ride will get you to the Asian Art Museum.

Chinatown and Alcatraz

The upscale shops of Union Square are nearby, and you could spend an entire day in Chinatown, one of the largest in North America. A 10-minute cab ride to Fisherman's Wharf gives you access to popular dining spots, and from there you can take a cruise to Alcatraz Island.

Anime decor, free bikes
The modern decor at Kimpton Buchanan Hotel draws inspiration from Japanese culture, and the free-to-use bikes make it easy to get around. Mums Restaurant and Bar serves up Asian contemporary cuisine, specializing in shabu-shabu, and you can work off those meals in the fitness center.

Cable TV and WiFi

The Japanese influence continues in the 131 guestrooms. You can stream music through the iPod® docking station, watch cable on the 37-inch flat-screen TV, and connect using in-room WiFi.

Very bad experience for my first time at San Franc
Very bad experience, especially the service which is totally disappointed, toilet door is not even able to be closed, not functioning at all! Pictures on the website are not factual, the hotel is really old!

Another great stay at this hotel!
I booked here on a last minute trip to San Francisco on a business occasion and called ahead because I had questions regarding the type of last-minute booking. Not only did the hotel surpass my already high expectations of the Kimpton brand, they went above and beyond and upgraded us for our one-night stay. I've stayed here numerous times and never regret it. The neighborhood, the service to the rooms, and the amenities are great. Needless to say, I look forward to staying here again!

Great Family Hotel
We were very comfortable and happy during a much needed family weekend getaway. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It felt very much like a home away from home
