We stayed two nights at the Nob Hill and really enjoyed it! Our room was the penthouse with outdoor rooftop patio and very charming. We ate both evenings in the small attached restaurant and it was very good! Would return!

Nob Hill was an experience and different to other areas in San Francisco. It was a great location with a short walk to the cable cars to access Chinatown and Little Italy. We had a hire car so it was easy to get around. The hotel offers a lovely continental breakfast. There is also a wine reception each day in...

With the constant shortage of good hotels in San Francisco, it was a relief to be able to book Nob Hill at a god price. Convenient location with walking distance to fisherman's wharf, 2 blocks away from Trader Joes' and Whole Foods. Clean nice rooms with spacious bathrooms, nice staff, pleasant breakfast included in the price, strong Wi fi signal...

I stayed at a room adjacent to stairs. I wanted to take a nap once I checked in but lots of activity was happening at stairs and I could feel people's walking and even sometimes hauling something heavy. I am not a sensitive person but the level of noise and vibrations are too high. This building is very old and...

Whilst we are happy that you liked your room, and found it to be clean, we are disappointed that you found the hotel to be noisy during the day. We trust that you slept well at night, and we hope that you will consider staying with us again when you are visiting San Francisco. Thank you for taking the time...

Four of us stayed here for three nights at the beginning of our holiday to California. After a long flight we were looking forward to a good nights rest. Staff on the front desk were friendly and helpful. Our rooms on about the 4th floor were a ride in a very old traditional lift which was a novelty, but we...

Before our recent visit I read a number of reviews on this hotel and found them to vary quite considerably on arrival I had no high expectation. In all honesty for the amount we paid I feel totally satisfied with our experience of the hotel. True the staff weren't bend over backwards helpful or friendly but they did their job...

The room was very small. I booked this hotel via hotels.com cause I liked their pictures online. I wanted to shoot there but when I got there in person figured that it isn't a good idea. It's an old building with old style elevator where you need to manually close the metal grid door. Receptionist closed it for me when...

The photos of the hotel and the actual property, as experienced by us 2 weeks ago, were completely different. The hotel is in crying need of attention but the worst bit was the lack of heating. Our room, of course I do not know about any of the other rooms, did not have any heating whatsoever. When we arrived and...

Friendly reception staff and a decent continental breakfast. The bed is also quite comfy. However the rooms are tiny and therefore feel claustrophobic. The shower is great though. I personally liked the lift with the wire mesh. Quirky.
