Great location one block away from Union Square
Facilities fee added to room rate
As its name suggests, this boutique hotel aims to transport guests to Florence, Italy, with its Italian-inspired design and atmosphere. You'll see this reflected in the hotel's guest rooms, which are outfitted with agate-base lamps, metallic tufted headboards, mercury glass and cut-velvet upholstery, not to mention free Wi-Fi access, iHome radios, C.O. Bigelow toiletries and 55-inch TVs. While recent visitors appreciated the clean, quiet rooms, it was the hotel's stellar location that really won over lodgers: Villa Florence sits just steps from Union Square and the Powell Street Cable Car Line. And though you're within reach of some of the city's best restaurants, you should consider sticking around the hotel for a meal at Bar Norcini, the hotel's delectable Italian restaurant.

Critic Reviews



This little bit of Italy on Powell Street houses guests in traditional rooms that, though not large, feel comfortable, upbeat, and expansive.


The theme's charm depends on how much you love Italy, or else how amenable you are to an unabashedly kitschy representation of its culture.
