Stayed at the Nob Hill Inn for two days during a business trip. The inn's location is centrally located at the base of famed Nob Hill, close to all of San Francisco's key downtown tourist attractions and business district. The inn itself is charming, with common areas decorated in old San Francisco, old world style. My room was large and... More

Tried the Muni/Cable car by buying a 3 Day passport. 311 and 511 very helpful in planning the early part of our trip. Helped in familiarizing ourselves with the city. We drove the rest of our stay. Staff is very courteous and helpful. Coffee... More

Reasonably priced & free on-site parking key when traveling in SF. Sheets were clean & room adequate. Shower and water pressure were really good to wake up to. Close to everything: fisherman's wharf, Lombard St, Chinatown, Japantown, Richmond & the scenic Golden Gate.

This place was characterful and they'd put a lot of effort into recreating the traditional feel for the Knob Hill area. It was clean and the staff were polite. Our room had a lovely shower over a roll-top bath. The only problem was that it was a bit noisy from the traffic on the main road. Overall it made for... More

The Nob Hill Inn is a rather small, but lovely place to stay at in San Francisco. It's conveniently located: most points of interests can easily be reached by foot or public transport. We were a bit sceptic when we booked, but glad to have been proven wrong. I'd stay there again. Just be ready for a small room (though... More

This lovely inn is conveniently located on Nob Hill and within walking distance to Union Square and a lot of other SF attractions. Parking is within walking distance as well. We stayed in a cozy, clean, and comfortable room. The front desk staff was personable and professional. They were helpful with restaurant recommendations as well as information for parking.

It was a fantastic time in SF. This hotel is superb for location (yeah, it's Nob Hill - Pier 39 and Union are very close to) and is very-very charming old style. You can touch the soul of the city here. Rooms are very well serviced, clean with very artistic furniture. No problem at all. The staff is very friendly... More

This wonderful boutique-style hotel is located on Nob Hill and within walking distance to Chinatown and Union Square. It is also 2 blocks from a cable car stop. Rooms are nicely decorated with period furniture. Staff was very nice and helpful. Parking is not offered on-site but is available within two blocks. Note that, like many boutique properties in the... More

We stayed here for one night whilst we travelled around California as a family. One of the rooms slept four but the sofa bed was almost in a room of its own with a separate door and it had a basin in the room which was a lovely touch. The rooms are decorated in a very traditional style and the... More

The main drawback was the staff and particularly the manager who were quite rude to us and to their other staff! The manager spoke to the kitchen lady really badly. The manager seems to be setting a tone of not genuinely interested in the guests. The location is great and rooms are size able but very noisy. Very poor linen... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood 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.
