week-end visitor

Hotel was further from Fisherman's Wharf than we had expected. Room clean, bed comfortable. Small bathroom with no space to put toiletries. Our room faced a parking lot. For the lower price we paid, it was acceptable.

Need Improvements for Comfort

1. Need two chairs so two people can sit, bed isn't a chair: 2. Computer cord too short : 3. No mirror in room except one small mirror in bathroom. 4. Bathroom is toooo small, have to shut door to use sink! Claustrophobic!!!!! 5. Parking lot is the pits....$25.00 a day is way too much. 6. Long way to go for ice and soda AND you can't get both on the same flooor!

Very clean, great location

Room is small, but extremely clean. If all you are doing is showering & sleeping, stay here. 15 min walk to the water. Staff was very helpful. On-site restaurant was great! The breakfast was good, I also had a dinner there and both were great and it was super convenient.

Fairly good value if you get an offer

A friend and I spent four nights at the Da Vinci Villa in August 2012. The room was clean and quite big, big bed, the staff was very friendly and helpful. On the drawback, the bathroom smelled funny sometimes, the breakfast room was quite chaotic and we had to specifically request for more shower gel (there was one tiny bottle available upon arrival - for two people - and none was added in the next two days). Having said that, we found an offer, so the price was considerably lower than average. If we had paid full price (400$/night for a double bedroom, according to the information we found in the room itself), it would not be worth it.

good location to serve as home base

We looked at several hotels but chose this one b/c of its location. I didn't want to stay near union square--I wanted to stay in a more residential neighborhood so that I could experience a more "real" SF rather than just the spots that most tourists see. We were able to walk to lots of great restaurants, the marina, and fisherman's wharf. Only downside is that it's not on a BART line, so we took some buses but mostly cabs, which gets costly. Staff was all very friendly and helpful. Bed was super comfortable. Walls were paper thin, so could hear the couple next to us shouting at each other. No mini fridge or microwave in the room. Free breakfast was basic, but the fruit was fresh and coffee was good.

Reasonable Value, Attentive Staff

Old hotel, redesigned, but with some of the old warts just painted over, but the major updating done. Clean rooms with good equipment and problems very quickly fixed. Very good staff that know the area and eager to help. Negatives - inadequate sound proofing. Reasonable bargain.
