The staff at the hotel was always super friendly and ready to help with any questions that we had. It was in a great area, only a 10 minute walk away from Union Square Park where we could catch the public bus or a tour bus. The room was always clean when we would arrive at the end of the... More

We loved staying at the Nob Hill Hotel in San Francisco. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Anything we asked for they promptly responded. Each night we enjoyed complimentary wine and cheese in the lobby area. We WILL definitely stay there again.

Yes, We'll certainly go back to the hotel. We stayed in the penthouse, loved the jacuzzi, and had views of the 4th of July Fireworks. The hotel is on the edge of the Tenderloin and the Financial/Union Square area. Our room was quiet at night except of course, for the 4th of july fireworks. The neighborhood is fine, and generally...

I ended up at the Nob Hill Hotel as it was Oracle week and the city was heavily booked. Being a monthly commuter, I have been in a lot of hotels and knew to have low expectations for this hotel. Even my low expectations were not low enough. It started with check-in. I booked through a third party site for... More

Really not up to par by any hotel standards. There was a hole under the carpet in our room, out the window a rooftop with trash and discarded screens, tv powered by old extension cords. I asked housekeeping for an ice bucket and got a dirty one without the liner, I complained but no one brought a liner. The included... More

The hotel was built in 1906 and is decorated accordingly, so you really feel like stepping back in time (in a good sence!). The authentic elevator is quite charming. They also offer free wine tastings each afternoon on 5:30-7:00 PM, which is nice. However, the complementary breakfast were a bit disappointing, with only cereals, sweet pastry, toasts and fruit available.... More

I liked the appearance of the lobby and check in was fine but our room experience was not good for a number of reasons. The wave of a strong and peculiar smell hit hard when entering our room. The carpeting was stained and the furnishings in general felt out dated and odd. The room was dark and dreary as well.... More

Small beautiful hotel with the character of the turn of the last century. Also the decoration and design of the rooms are modeled after that time. Gorgeous. Everything else is up to date. Centrally located, many attractions within walking distance, bus or cable car. Nice italian restaurant in the hotel. Free Wifi for the guests and the staff is really... More

old and characterful if a bit hodge podge, theres not much consistency in the decor although depending on your mood the budget retro opulence kind of adds charm and fun to the snob hill san francisco experience - we were lucky enough to book the last available room at the last minute (3hrs in advance) and received the rooftop 'penthouse'...
