I traveled for business and this hotel rated at 3 stars with corporate booking too. I had to store my suitcase on my bed the rooms are so tiny. The elevator is barely functional so be prepared to hall your suitcase. The fitness center has one out dated treadmill and a few weights and equipment that doesn't work. Good Nob... More

Excellent Staff. Made an error with the reservation, the searched a room for two of us at another hotel (group of 4), gave us the only left room much cheaper and did not charge us anything for our error (booked one day too much). Rooms are clean, bathrooms are new and very nice, rooms are cute. Area is ok, parking... More

This little hotel was quite a find. The staff was super nice and friendly. The lobby gives you that San Francisco feel. The rooms are a little small but it makes you feel like home. Honestly, if you're looking for a reasonably priced hotel in San Fran and you just wanna tour the city, this would be the perfect hotel... More

It was so good to drive into the heart of the city, check in to something completely different and feel comfortable, safe and welcomed. Complimentary wine and cheese each evening plus a breakfast included made for a relaxing stay in unique if quirky surroundings. Clean room, comfortable huge bed. We could walk to all major sights and the cable car... More

I stayed at the Nob Hill Hotel with two girlfriends. It was such a fun experience. The service was wonderful - they had a bottle of wine waiting for us - and the location was great. We loved the boutique style. It was a nice change of pace from a typical hotel.

If I could, I would have given this dump a no star rating. Was it the peeling paint and wallpaper in the room? Was it the toilet and sink that were stopped up when I checked in? Was it the room key card that didn't work? Was it the room that was so small that I had to turn sideways... More

Spend a few extra bucks and stay somewhere else. Room was so small, It took forever to flee as fast as possible in an effort to vacate this dump like the building was on fire. The upside was the feeling of sheer euphoria I felt once it was out of sight. The covers on the bed left a greasy film... More

I choose this Hotel to stay primarily because of the sense of Victorian charm it seems to offer. However, I was slightly disappointed about how reality does't seem to exactly match what they show on tier websites or photographs. That said, it isn't a bad place to stay or anything. The smaller rooms look a little crampy but not too... More

Because I couldn't have swung it in the room! I was optimistic after going through mixed reviews of this place and I can honestly say that it is quite literally the embodiment of 'you get what you pay for'. My friend and I, on a budget, shared a double bed and were shocked at how tiny the room is. I... More
