Good location if you like Japanese food. Free wine and sake every evening.
The carpet together with the shower area are relatively dirty when we arrive. Overall room looks tired compared to the picture.
You can choose between hard and soft towels. Small but really nice detail.
This is extremely nitpicking but I would like the rooms to smell a bit nicer. (:
1. Location - Japan town is awesome and convenient to get to all the tourist hotspots. 2. Cleanliness 3. The staff were brilliant and friendly.
1. Given the cost of the room I would’ve hoped for free/or cheap parking rather than $40 per night. 2. Very noisy air conditioning unit.
Convenient location for our purpose.
No place in the room to sit except on the bed.
The location was great. Relatively close to Fillmore street with shops and restaurants. Felt safe walking around at night. The staff was friendly and rooms were clean.
The fitness center was very small.
San Francisco is a beautiful city with a mixture of all kinds of cultures and things to do. No hotel highlights this better than the Kimpton Buchanan.
The Kimpton Buchanan aims to create more of a nest than a hotel room. Because the hotel is situated where Japantown, The Fillmore, and Pacific Heights meet, the Kimpton Buchanan combines all of those designs to create a unique experience. Featuring European linens and a “Zen meets Barbary Coast” design with Japanese art sprinkled in, guests will find their room is cozy yet functional with a connected workstation in every room. All rooms come with an LCD flat screen television with HD channels and some rooms come with mini-fridges and Keurig coffee makers.
The Kimpton Buchanan sits next eating destinations that would make any foodie jealous. With restaurants like 1300 on Fillmore serving up Southern comforts and Dosa offering Indian cuisine with a California spin, palettes won’t ever be bored. And of course, guests will be able to find delicious, authentic Japanese food in nearby Japantown. There’s something for everyone within a short walk of the hotel.
The Kimpton is pet friendly and has a well-equipped fitness center. However, the star is their in-room spa treatments that feature everything from massages to facials to hand and foot treatments. After a long day looking through the nearby boutiques with unique oddities and live music venues, guests will be begging for the full body treatment. Other amenities include free high speed WiFi, dry cleaning, and meeting rooms.
