Great stay
We stayed here on our last night of our 5-day trip in SF and we had a great experience. The bed was extremely comfortable. There is limited self-parking so if you arrive late at night, you might have to park across the street. Japan mall was walking distance, lots of restaurants nearby. Convenient location. Would most likely stay here again.

Excellent location if you want to be in or near to Japantown. Facilities fine although chairs and lighting in room could be better. Staff pleasant and helpful. Attached restaurant is convenient but certainly not a "destination" eatery. I would stay again at Kimpton Buchanan if I needed to be around Jpantown.
