I stayed here with my kids for 1 night to enjoy the sights of San Francisco. Big Mistake!This hotel was terrrible! Very old, never has been renovated. The carpets were disgusting in the rooms. There is even carpet in the bathroom! Breakfast is a joke with cereal bars and instant coffee. Far walk to sites (Fishermen's Wharf, China Town and... More

At Castle Inn we work hard to make sure you have a pleasant stay. We offer a basic, clean room in a great, central location. We are about a 15 minute walk to Ghirardelli Square and a 20 minute walk to the Fisherman's Wharf area. If you prefer to take public transportation, we have buses half a block away or... More

The best way to experience San Francisco is to walk and the Castle Inn is in the center of everything. Park your car (free parking), check in (ultra clean rooms), get a coffee at Peet's Coffee & Tea (a 1/2 block down on Polk) or a great breakfast at Peter D's (across the street) and replenish the stuff that TSA...

Castle Inn is located at the intersection of Broadway and Van Ness. It's a 15 minute walk from Ghirardelli Square and about a 20-25 minute walk from Pier 39 and Fisherman's Wharf- in other words I'm saying that location wise it's perfect! I think the bus stop is right across the street but we didn't use it. You do have... More

Prices at San Fran airport were religious!... More

A colleague and I stayed in the hotel in December 2014 as we were attending a conference at the Moscone Centre. It was ideal for us. The room was very clean and big in size, the bathroom too. There was coffee making facilities, fridge, tv and toiletries provided. The breakfast in the morning was great for us to get on... More

SF is an expensive city. The Castle Inn is located centrally to many neighborhoods and they are currently renovating rooms -- a plus (unless you are next to the renovation, but they didn't start too early! )

This is in downtown San Francisco. On the bus line. Free parking. Free "breakfast" was coffee and granola bars that you take back to the room. Rooms are nothing special and borderline 2/3 star, but I gave 3 star because of the excellent front desk customer service husband and wife team. Wi-fi is goofy - you'll have to call for... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
