After we booked our stay we read some unflattering reviews which worried us. We needn't have as we found The Nob Hill Inn to be a welcome surprise. It is a Victorian house located in a perfect spot for exploring San Francisco. Members of the staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed afternoon tea in the... More

Very nice hotel with a good central location. But unloading your car and/or parking are an abysmal experience! I was almost ticketed by the police and then had a hotel employee berate me for questioning the price of overnight parking! Fortunately, she was the only ungracious staff member and I would stay here again (but not with a rental car)!

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel mid-march. I wanted to find somewhere affordable but clean and still in a good area. We were very pleased with our stay. We stayed in room 10 which was on the third floor. I'm from New York so the noise didn't bother me at all as we were facing Taylor Street but... More

I stayed here for one night and thought it was great. The location is excellent, walking distance to Union Square and Chinatown. The hotel is right down the hill from great views. The staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed it. It's very central and easy to get all over the city from and there are some nice places to eat within a stones throw, and a friendly wash and fold service from the laundry one block down. The staff at the Inn couldn't have been more helpful, even making us... More

It's location is great, only two blocks from union square, however you have to negotiate some of those very steep hills if you're walking. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a standard room that was nice however the old double bed was small and uncomfortable. Don't bother with their breakfast for which is minimal and terrible service.

Thank you Trip Advisor for making me discover this oasis of refinement in the heart of San Francisco. After living in France for many years, I felt at home in this recently restored Inn. In addition to the period decor, I found a pleasant staff and management, The bathroom, bedding and linen were impeccable. Sophisticated Nob Hill, Pacific Heights, Chinatown... More

Yes, times change, but staying in this lovely, old-fashioned place makes it seem as if time has stood still. The rooms are furnished with period pieces and the beds are very comfortable; I've had the best sleeps there in spite of the fact that noise CAN be a problem, depending on the room. Some have had have had the windows... More

Great appearance from the outside & reception but rooms dark & dismal. One of our rooms didn't even have a window. This should have never been let. Staff were very friendly & helpful on where to & not to go in the city. Sorry but I won't be recommending you to any of our friends. :((

we stayed here 7 days as an exchange with our timeshare. this was our 5th visit over 17 years, and as we choose to stay in boutique hotels or timeshares, we know the rooms will be small. this inn was a previous private residence built in 1908 that is now a 21 room inn. their web site says it was...
