Japanese influence and hip interior make for a charming and characteristic ambiance at Japantown's Hotel Kabuki, a Joie de Vivre. The stylish boutique hotel underwent a $30 million renovation in 2018 and now attracts a mix of leisure and business travelers with its trendy spaces and loft-feel.
Away from the crowds in the heart of Japantown, Hotel Kabuki is right next to Japan Center, a shopping area with a variety of inexpensive restaurants, a Kinokuniya Bookstore, and shops with Japanese antiques, bonsai trees, and more. The popular Fillmore District is a 10-minute walk from the hotel. The boutique hotel is positioned in a great location for accessing many of San Francisco’s major attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Haight-Ashbury.
Accommodations are small but stylish and make efficient use of the space. Natural light pouring through floor-to-ceiling windows make the rooms appear larger and some feature private balconies for extended views. Rooms are well-equipped with all the modern amenities such as free Wi-Fi, 55-inch flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers, mini-fridges, electronic safes, and Bluetooth-enabled alarm clocks. Sleek, modern bathrooms have wet room-style rainfall showers and include hair dryers and bathrobes.
Hotel Kabuki, a Joie de Vivre offers an impressive set of amenities and features that are common for relaxation. The inviting lobby is design-savvy and features a bar with Japanese-inspired dishes and cocktails. Additionally, there is a Zen garden with koi pond and a fire pit, an impressive 24-hour fitness room, yoga studio offering free classes.
Situated conveniently beside the Japan Center, access to major attractions in San Francisco, and a pet-friendly policy makes this hip hotel an experience, not just a visit.

Things to do
Cons:They had construction going on, yes they did stop at 5pm but it would have been since with out the noise.
Cons:Room is oddly designed. TV not easily viewed from bed. And the bathroom is not typical -- I think it has a Japanese influence so perhaps it is a comforting design for those familiar with Japan, but for others it seems strange. A deep thin tub with shower, no shower curtain, then the sink in a middle area that has wall to wall carpeting, and then the toilet in another room that you have to step up and over to enter.
Cons:Under renovation, the AC wasn't working so we had to sleep with the door open, which is loud outside
