This was one of the most reasonably priced accommodations I could find in downtown San Francisco so I didn't expect much. This is why I was in many ways positively surprised. The hotel is definitely no luxury, but gives you the basics at good price. The neighborhood is nice and calm, feels safe. This is very important in this city...

We stayed here 3 nights and the room is small, but it is clean and as we only came to the room to shower and sleep it was all we needed. Good location especially for the price we paid. Basic hotel, not breakfast or any other facilities, but that is fine as we wanted to see the city as much...

San Fran was the 1st stop of our US trip. Book Cable Car Court via booking.com. Really enjoyed stay here. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, everything we needed after a long day out touring around. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Location was great, right on the cable car line. Fell asleep each night listening to them go up and down...

not a 24hour front desk and because you need access to the hotel we stood outside for over 20 minutes until someone came, and it was at noon, not at 3am. Small room where we could hear everything that was happening and our view was another window 7ft away haha. other than that, it was okay, we were there for...

This hotel doesn't deserve your hard earned money!! The rooms are pathetic, there is Air Conditioning and the WIFI is only working in the lobby area and not in the rooms. There is NO Parking available and they will ask you to park on the streets which is very hard to find in a city like SFO. Upon that if...

Stayed here for a week during a vacation trip to San Francisco. The price was a steal compare to what most hotels were charging on a per night basis! The location was great, tons of cozy local restaurants on nearby Polk St and a Trader Joe's and CVS nearby. Plenty of bus lines and of course the cable car were...

My husband and I stayed here for 15 days in 2015. Safe neighbor hood and the cable car stop is right at the corner near the hotel on California. Good central location to be able to easily access all points of interest with grocery stores, restaurants, cafes etc, all within walking distance. Philip the manager was really nice and helpful...

What a great company with great customer service. We have use them for our last 3 visits and were given excellent prices and quality vehicles each time. If you don't want to put the deposit on a card they will take cash. They hold it and you get it back as you paid it. So we always give pounds and...

we were put in a very small room on the 4th floor. The room gets very stuffy when it is warm outside. There is no air con. The double bed is pushed against the wall. The mattress is limp and sinks in the middle. The carpet smells, indeed the whole building smells of some one who haven't had a wash...

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
