Fodor's Review

Inspired by the comic phenomena manga and anime, the Tomo draws hipsters and Japanophiles eager to surround themselves with Japanese pop culture, or J-Pop as it is known across the pond. And the location adds to the appeal: it's one of San Francisco's most interesting neighborhoods a couple of blocks from the Fillmore district, Yoshi's, and the famous Fillmore concert venue. Artist Heisuke Kitazawa created primary-color murals for the lobby, the popular Mums Restaurant,

and each of the rooms. The cozy quarters have Scandinavian wood furnishings and low Japanese-style beds; amenities include Keurig coffeemakers, flat-screen LCD HDTVs with video-game consoles, and iPod docking stations. Mums serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily; in the evening locals and tourists line up for shabu shabu, so make a reservation.

really great

We had an awesome time here. It is very quiet (which is hard to find when staying IN the city). The area is adorable and safe and lots of little places to walk around and see. The hotel was very reasonable and sometimes has deals. They do not have room service but there is a restaurant attached (entrance from street and 2nd floor of hotel). You can charge the food to your room bill but they will not bring it to you. Everyone is really nice

and we had a great time. Each room has it's own "wall paper"-- ours was this beautiful mural of a japanese girl on her way to school (she was carrying books) with white birds and dark blue sky and stars.
