First, the good things: The room was clean and cool on an unusually hot San Francisco day. The staff at the desk were friendly and helpful. The parking was convenient and not too expensive. Our room on the 5th floor was quiet. Families with kids all seemed to be happy. The not so good things: The only thing Italian or...

We arrived at Da Vinci after our 13 hour flight from NZ. Front desk and check in area was nice and tidy but the rooms were not quite as expected from the photos. I'll start with the positives-beds were comfortable, kids had a blast in the outdoor pool, location was awesome-if you were ok walking you were about 10 minutes...

I was so, so impressed with this hotel for the price and super convenient location! Our room was very spacious, and had a fantastic view of the bridge. Breakfast was included in the rate, which is RARE for an independent hotel in a city like San Francisco! They have a nice, spacious lounge with comfortable spot to read or relax....

Well, this is San Francisco. One of the most expensive cities for hotels. With that said, I know this place was a deal compared to most other properties and must adjust my expectations.

The mixed reviews on Villa Da Vinci almost made me choose another hotel, but I'm glad I didn't.

We stayed here for 5 nights while we toured the city. The location is good, about a 15 minute walk to the bay area. The hotel room was clean, but the hotel is a little in need of paint on some areas. They do offer a continental breakfast which does cut some expenses. It's expensive to stay anywhere in San...

Great location. Convenient to coffee and food. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Managers and housekeeping staff greeted me in the hallways. However, I was underwhelmed by the room itself based on the price and the 4-star Trip Advisor rating. The shower was dirty and things I expected to be clean were dingy. Despite having multiple signs indicating towels left on...

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
