        Best Family Hotel”

        We enjoyed our stay here. The studio was very comfortable and offered a sofa bed and queen size bed. We loved the fully stocked kitchenette! It had a mini fridge and microwave plus sink! This makes it so convenient when you have hungry kids all the time. Not to mention dish soap and scrub are provided. It’s the little things that count. The hotel and room were extremely clean and tidy. Also the overnight parking fee was way cheaper than other hotels. We are definitely coming back again.

        Rolando saved me from missing my flight!”

        I had left my phone in my room and didn't realize it until I was ready to print my bag ticket. I didn't have time to go back via taxi to the hotel so I called them and Rolando was able to catch a cab who was bringing people to the airport and the cab driver delivered my phone within 20 minutes. Rolando was absolutely amazing and patient with me as I was quite anxious. Thank you!!

        Great place”

        Great hotel with huge rooms, a kitchenette ans roof top terrace. Really enjoyed my stay. Only downside: The windows are not 100% soundprrof, so you can hear some sound from the streets, especially when havong a room at one of the lower floors.

        Great Stay!”

        This was a great stay. We stayed in the studio & it was bigger than expected. The patio area was a great plus as we did not expect it. Location was great, not too far from attractions. I would definitely stay here again!

        The staff were very hospitable, and the facility (from the lobby, elevators and rooms) were clean. Most importantly, the location: the resident is close to the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39, Union Square, etc.

        Like home away from home ”

        Search if you want but it will be hard to find a hotel like the Donatello. They add a personal touch comparable to some of the best hotels around. Whenever I’m in San Francisco I will definitely stay here.

        Great location! In the middle of the city! It was so easy to travel from the hotel. When we arrived, it was pouring rain and the staff had a HUGE umbrella available for us to use at no charge! Thanks~ The staff was very friendly too!
