... and read our books for an hour. Because we are always on the go it was so good to sit back and relax. After, this we had a bit of a walk down to pier 39. Surprisingly the weather warmed up and it was pretty nice along the waterfront and not chilly. So that was good. Pier 39 is an awesome little pier, packed with restaurants and shops it has a lot going on and is always busy. So we enjoyed wondering around.

From there we walked back to the office of the HOHO company then waited for the HOHO bus to take us to Union Square where we could join the last ride to the Golden Gate Park Tour. We passed several landmarks that we had seen on previous tours including City Hall. We rode up hills with the guide - a great guy named Leo - telling us about the different styles of houses – “Stick ...

We had to get a taxi to the RV pickup. We discovered through a dodgy looking taxi driver at SF airport that San Fran taxi policy is to charge 150% of the shown meter charge when they go outside certain city limits, and the RV centre was outside these limits. After the initial shock (we were told approx $140 cost) we grudgingly agreed under duress as we didn't want to get stuffed around. It would have been cheaper to hire ...
All Blacks 30 - England 22. That was the score announced over the PA system just as we were about to start our descent into San Francisco airport. The head wind which is most unusual on this route, a 30 minute delay in leaving Auckland, plus waiting on the tarmac for a United 747 to leave meant we were alongside the air bridge at 11.10 am, some 40 minutes late.
Then to queue ...
Hey!! So we have been here almost a week and had so much fun already :) On Monday we did say we were going to chill locally, however that didnt happen! We went to the Golden Gate Bridge which is a beaut- drove over it and stopped by the side to take pics (which are on facebook), then popped to Stinson beach for lunch. The beach was lovely, but very foggy! Then went to Muir Woods to look at the Red Trees. Sounds odd for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Kabuki, a Joie de Vivre hotel San Francisco
Great location and love the Japanese style!!
I am from Japan, and wanted to see how American-Japanese Hotel look like.
I loved it!!!
I like the fact they have Japanese bath tub. Taking bath after long day ... it was so good :)
Sake hour was cool too. I get to talk to people, and ask about where to go.
It's not in downtown, but I liked the location. It's about $8 taxi ride to downtown, and there are a lot restaurants next to hotel.
After finding out my husband would be attending a conference in San Francisco, we knew staying at one of the Union Square hotels was not an option for us -- not only because of price, but also because we wanted something a little less touristy. Hotel Kabuki was a perfect fit. It was close enough to the major sights of San Francisco, but also encouraged me to explore less-travelled parts of the city.
Hotel room was fantastic all-around: the furnishings, decorations, views of the city, comfortable bed and great Japanese style deep tub! Most of the staff was very responsive, courteous and helpful. We highly recommend paying extra for a corner room - it is well worth it. The ongoing renovations did not hurt our stay. The breakfast buffet was good, but so was the Denny's (to our surprise!) across the street when we wanted something cheaper.
My husband and I found this hotel via expedia.com. We were curious about the Japanese-theme of the hotel and since the price at the time was low (they were doing renovations to the restaurant) we decided to give it a try. We stayed on the fourth floor. The room was nice and clean. The bathroom was nice--it was a little narrow at the opening, but it was certainly enough space for my husband and I. The Japanese soaking tub was certainly a delight to come back to after hours of walking all day around San Fran! Even my husband took advantage of the soaking tub. We had a Sleep by Number bed which was very comfortable. The hotel was quiet and peaceful. The restaurant was unavailable but there were many restaurants within walking distance (many Japanese restaurants, sushi bars, etc.). There was even a Denny's (for breakfast or late nite snacks) across the street. We would definitely come back to stay here.
It all depends on which room you get. We had 2 rooms, 503 & 1203 both were hot, day & night. We couldn't sleep w/the sliding door open w/the noise of the city all around. When we checked in, fire trucks were there responding to a false alarm. One morning (about 6:30) we got to experience another false alarm. Another morning (6:30) we were awakened by someone pounding on the pipes. The shower was short & VERY weak.
This is the best 3-star hotel I've stayed at in SFO. I've stayed at many marginal 3-stars recently so my expectations were low.
I had a large, newly renovated room with good amenities. I would definitely stay here again.
Das ist das beste 3-Sterne-Hotel, in dem ich bis jetzt in San Francisco übernachtet habe. Ich habe in letzter Zeit in vielen dürftigen 3-Sterne-Hotels übernachtet, also waren meine Erwartungen eher niedrig.
Ich habe in einem großen, neu renovierten Zimmer mit schöner Einrichtung gewohnt. Ich würde hier definitiv wieder übernachten.
Stayed at the Hotel Kabuki/Miyako this weekend with girlfriends for a girls' only weekend. We had hoped to stay closer to Union Square, but with the Nike Women's Marathon everything was booked or way too expensive. We decided on the Miyako becasue it was a 4-star hotel with reasonable rates. We paid $220 a night per room with AAA discount (including taxes).
Wir kommen gerade von einem verlängerten Wochenende im Hotel Myiako/Kabuki zurück. Das Hotel wird gerade mit einigen Renovierungsarbeiten fertig und heißt jetzt Hotel Kabuki, aber unter den Einheimischen ist es wohl noch als Miyako bekannt. Das einzige Zeichen dafür, dass hier renoviert wurde, ist das geschlossene Restaurant.
Great stay at the Miyako (aka Kabuki)
We just got back from a long weekend at the Hotel Miyako/Kabuki. The hotel is finishing a remodel and is labeled Hotel Kabuki now, but the locals seem to know it as the Miyako. The only evidence of the remodel was the closed restaurant.
The hotel is located in Japantown, on a relatively quiet street (we did hear a fair amount of traffic noise in our room). It's right on the 2,3,and 4 bus routes that go directly to the Financial district.
The staff was friendly, and the room was lovely. The massive whirlpool tub was great, especially after long days walking around SFO.
We stayed on the club floor, with an included continental breakfast. The breakfast was fine, but nothing spectacular.
