This was absolutely not a four star hotel. 2.5 maybe. The carpet in my room was held on with duct tape. There was a bar of soap in the shower that was used and had hair on it. The AC unit did not work. This hotel is an absolute nightmare

If you want a heart of the city experience and don’t have a car this place is for you. Sound of cable cars ringing their bells as they go up and down the Powell Street line adds to the vibe. 1/2 block from Union Square.
Bad Tags
The traffic in the part of town is especially maddening.

Staff was rude, mattress was atrocious (never slept worse in my life, actually had back problems the next day), no comforter on bed, not enough pillows, no blanket for bed, hallway smelled like smoke, asked for a bowl and spoon at bar and it was dirty...

The best part of our Villa Florence experience was the bartender. That's about it. I would never have rated this hotel 4 stars.
Bad Tags
I wouldn't know where to start. From check in to our depressing room. The front desk guy suggesting we go to target to buy a sleeping bag for our son.This hotel is small, smells terrible and had the worst bathrooms ever. No bright spots for our stay.

I did not like anything about this hotel. It is a converted old junky hotel into a "boutique hotel". This was the worst hotel experience I've had in a long time. The idea that this is a 4* hotel is completely insane.
Bad Tags
Everything. The room was junky and they charged a $116 fee for nothing out of my incidental for no reason. What a crappy hotel. Room was gross.

It was a nightmare that I spent two nights in this hotel. The hall smells terrible. AC didn't work at all. Small and dirty room. Disordered management. Front desk even charged a large amount of resort fee when checking out in addition to the agreement.

Parking, technically the street they are on is not for through traffic therefore it took a couple passes to recognize where to turn, park and enter. Also they have no EV charging.

I had a view of the wall of the next building. But, they upgraded me from a queen to a king and I wasn't in the room much, so there's not much to complain about.

I was falsely charged and I am waiting for a refund. I also found mold on the bathroom ceiling and the ceiling bathroom light didn't work. I was only there one night so it didn't bother me that much, but if I was staying longer I would have complained.

Helpful friendly staff, great food, fantastic location. Room was extremely small - had planned on doing my video workout there, but no floor space! I'm petite - can't imagine a grown man in the shower! All-in-all a great experience though.
