Great staff and great location but I recommend staying when you can sleep with closed windows. I stayed there on an unusually hot summer day and heard cars accelerating to go up the hill next to the hotel for most of the night. Room was nice sized and very clean

This was my 3rd stay at the Nob Hill Inn. Previously I've stayed in the "hotel" type room, and the 1bedroom w/ partial kitchen. This time, I had the smallest room, "efficiency", however, I would take the smallest room at the Nob Hill Inn over a hotel room anywhere else in San Francisco.

The Nob Hill Inn is a fine old establishment. It was built in 1907. Some of the rooms are small but the place has charm. One should try to book one of the larger rooms in the front. Now the front is a bit noisy but, you're in the city. The staff at the inn are the most professional, helpful,... More

A good location in Nob Hill. Junior suite was ok for a family with 2 kids. The atmosphere is very peaceful thought the traffic noise is really bad. The sofabed was not very comfortable and it was noisy.The five o'clock tea was available for customers. Basic and simple breakfast is available for extra cost.

Our airport shuttle dropped us at another hotel with a similar name, so be sure to give the correct address. Once we arrived, we were very happy with the comfortable suite provided, with bedroom, separate lounge, kitchen, and huge well-equipped bathroom, 2 flat-screens etc. The furniture is all period and fits the overall décor, historical and quaint. The location is... More

We stayed for 6 nights mid June 2014. We grabbed a taxi from the airport (it was a share cab system but ended up being a van for the two of us) it took about 20mins and coat a mere $17 each. The weather in San Fran this time of year was great, not too hot, not too windy, and... More

Once in room 5, the delight of the period furnishing faded fast. the bed was set side on to the... More

Our stay at Nob Hill Inn was not very comfortable because of the lack of air conditioning. We stayed in a very well maintained and decorated room, just at the corner of the building. but the room was very hot by the end of the day, and we decided to sleep with the windows open. Bad decision. During the night... More
