We stayed here for 3 nights, as the start of our recent holiday in California. As first-timers in San Francisco it was great to be in such a central location, and on one of those fabled steep hills! With cable cars running close by, the cathedral a minute away, and a couple of rooftop bars to choose from, this is... More

Nice historic feel to this mansion type property built after the 1906 earthquake. Clearly therefore the rooms are on the smaller side but are nicely furnished in keeping with the period feel (as is the quirky elevator!). Lots of good information given by the receptionists on arrival and in the room manuals. Nice touches include the tea and sherry from... More

Because San Francisco is an expensive place to stay, this is a good compromise, but be prepared for a small room with no views...and no tea or coffee making facilities...OK location, lots of buses and accessible to wherever you want to go...but a bit of a walk...especially beware if you don't like hills...good wifi and nice touch having tea and...

This is an Historic building hotel, which used to be a famous family mansion, is Just THE BEST! The rooms are also VERY historic, but LOVELY! The staff brought us bagels and cream cheese with coffee every morning to our room for a very reasonable small charge. Each time it made our whole day wonderful! The most accommodating and friendly... More

I was in a one-bedroom apartment, with the bedroom in the middle, and a spacious bathroom behind the bedroom. The mini- kitchen was nice, but larger cooking pots were needed to cook for my family. Temps were in the high sixties, so msome ventilation was needed--but opening the back window of the bedroom resulted in a moldy smell from outside... More

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 people who write the negative reviews... More

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
