Our Story

Hotel Kabuki Lobby

Five Words. One Joie de Vivre Hotel. 

Where comfort meets culture. A peaceful oasis awaits.



East meets West in our 218 spacious guestrooms and suites, centrally located in San Francisco's famous Japantown. Enter a world of tranquility in the midst of a bustling city, and get lost in our Japanese garden, and extensive collection of original artwork from our Japanese sister city, Osaka. If you're looking for culture outside our walls, explore renowned restaurants, great shopping, and San Francisco's world-famous music scene near the historic Fillmore auditorium just steps away.



Mixing traditional Japanese elements with contemporary furniture, clean lines and thoughtful design go into every detail. Quiet sliding panels and shoji screens replace impenetrable walls, letting you customize the natural light in your room. With an emphasis on balance and calm, modern beds and chairs are artfully placed to help you rest peacefully in San Francisco's own oasis.



Fill your 3-foot Japanese-style tub, step inside, and let the warm water overflow. The shower area will contain bath amenities from luxurious spa brands, as you kick your feet up and soak the day away. Choose a room with a tub and  authentic wood sauna and treat yourself to your own private spa. Or take advantage of Kabuki Springs and Spa communal baths just a few blocks away. Either way, don't forget to slip into the robe that's hanging in your closet when you're done.



Experience a wave of calm wash over you from the second you set foot in our lobby. Whether you're strolling around our Japanese koi pond, enjoying city and bay views from the comfort of your room, relaxing with friends in our restaurant, or exercising in our 24-hour fitness center, we've taken every measure to ensure you find your inner peace at Hotel Kabuki. We've even pushed our checkout time to noon, so you won't feel rushed to leave.



We pride ourselves on our deep connections to the Japantown neighborhood and community, and regularly participate in local events like the Cherry Blossom Festival and Nihonmachi Street Fair. Ask our knowledgeable, charismatic Front Desk staff how to spend your days in the area, and get ready for a great list of places to go and things to see. And bring your dog or cat along with you, because at Hotel Kabuki, we're not just people-friendly, we're pet-friendly too.
