We booked our hotel through a travel agent, on arrival staff were unhelpful and unwelcoming. Our room was on the second floor with our bed positioned right next to the elevator, we could hear it all night it also shook the room, along with people above us stomping around until early hours of the night which was frustrating as we...

I spent 4 nights for a weekly trip to San Francisco and chose the da Vinci Villa (DVV) due to its location closer to Fisherman's Wharf, even though my employer is downtown. It was only 1.3 mile walk, which is great. I found DVV to be quite noisy at night and but opted to leave window open at night (I'm... More

We wanted a junior suite, but waited too long to book. Our room (double queen) was adequate for four (2 adults, 2 children)...comfortable beds, storage, excellent housekeeping (thanks to Georgina), wonderful continental breakfast, incredibly friendly and helpful front desk staff. Walking distance to many attractions. If we ever go back, we'll stay here again!

Just returned from a pleasant two night stay at da Vinci Villa. I booked the hotel through a discount booking service, and my motivating factors were price and location.

Definitely meets my criteria of a three star hotel-comfortable but no frills. Clean and comfortable rooms (nice soft beds) with smallish bathrooms and simple decor. Motel style where the room doors open to the outside (guess it's easier to get away with that in California) though somewhat dated. Interior courtyard with pool has a very 70s feel. Don't walk south... More

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.
