We stayed at the Nob Hill Hotel for one night in early August. Firstly it is in a great location close to town, but it is difficult to find somewhere to stop to offload baggage etc. Thankfully San Francisco drivers are very patient. The lobby is quirky with some interesting furniture; maybe a little OTT but forgivable. There is an... More

I really liked how modern and traditional spaces came together. The service was wonderful, and everyone was helpful. We walked to most places. It was close to charming shops, one street over and it seemed safe.

This was an interesting hotel that we stayed in for 2 nights. The room we had was quite small and the bedding was very floral! The bathroom was beautiful and everything was quite clean. The location wasn't as great as I was hoping, but it was okay as we had a vehicle. Street parking was difficult, so we paid the... More

The vending machine was not working. Shower was mot working. Living room of garden suite was not well lit. The staff was polite. The restaurant guy was rude. The breakfast should have more variety based on the money we are paying.

Pleasant staff, cozy, well decorated place. Staff is friendly, Good value for the money. More in a neighborhood than the center of action. Breakfast is very basic and the dining, while good quality, was slow in the evening - plan for an extra glass of wine :-)

We stayed 3 nights in a queen room. It was perfect - in fact our room had two bedrooms (but one bathroom), so lots of space, quiet, lots of light, a fridge and basically everything we wanted. There is a PC in the lobby free for guest use (handy as we only had our smart phones with us) and we... More

I came here with my girlfriend recently. We stayed 2 nights and ended up moving onto another hotel around the area. The hotel was neither bad or amazing. It was very simple in the sense that the staff really didn't bother with you unless you bothered to say hello to them. There wasn't much dining options or snacks like the... More

The place has lots of character and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The location is excellent. The minor downside is that the breakfast is a bit basic. Also, some of the rooms have connecting doors that don't damper the sound very well. If you have loud talkers next door they can keep you up at night. Over it... More

This hotel is very reasonably priced for one that is so central and with a lot of accessible public transport routes. The staff on the desk could not have been more helpful with directions and storing luggage ( as we arrived very early morning)and patient with our inability to get the shower to work. The room was very quiet ,... More
