This hotel has a good location in the center of the city. The parking is difficult to get into but it does have parking. The hotel lobby we shut from 11:00 PM to 7:15 AM in the morning so no breakfast available and if you need something or have problem forget it. I am amazed there is no one available.... More

Choose because of free parking and location. Room was very noisy. Could hear hotel alarms and elevator bell all night. Wifi did not work at all. Free breakfast was only coffee, juice and prepackaged rolls, and no place to eat. Staff was wonderful and very helpfull.

Free on site parking. Nothing posh in the hotel but it is clean and serviceable if somewhat eclectic. Reception staff very helpful, we arrived late (plane took off 2 1/2 hours late from Newark), reception was closed for the night but soon opened politely on the night bell. No Holy Bible, no bath plug, noisy A/C and intrusive traffic noise... More

My husband and I with our service dog stayed at Castle Inn for two nights. We really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, free parking, free WiFi, free simple breakfast. The location is the key, we walked to China Town and fisherman's wharf. There are a lot of restaurants at this area. The girl at front desk told us... More

Great find, quiet room in a good part of town. On a three week road trip we stayed here one night.The underground parking was a boon in a town thats easier to get around on foot and by bus. We arrived far too early to check in ( see my review on leaving san jose!) But the friendly reception staff... More

We stayed here for four nights and found the hotel to be ideally located for getting around San Francisco. There were plenty of great restaurants and pubs nearby. We could walk to all the local attractions (if you don't mind hills) such as union square and fisherman's wharf. We stayed in a family suite and the only minor complaint was... More

We weren't really sure what to expect from staying here but the prices everywhere were sky high for this weekend. We were met in reception by Marshall and what a great guy he was. He gave us fantastic information about San Francisco, best places to go, where to avoid, where was and wasn't safe! He informed us on getting around... More

I spent 5 days at the Castle Inn in San Francisco' Russian Hills in September 2014. The hotel's location is absolutely perfect for the active city tourist. On one corner of the block there are several busses taking you to the waterfront, on the other corner there are busses going downtown and beyond. 2 cable car lines are in walking... More

sfcastleinn, Guest Relations Manager at Castle Inn, responded to this review

Dear HentoPento, Again, we are sorry that the AC unit in your room was not functioning. Thank you for letting us know. This is usually the only way we know if something is not working as it should. When you notified the front desk, the manager checked to see if it was something that could be fixable in house. When... More

My husband & I stayed here for one night in Sept./14. This hotel was exactly what it said it would be. It was in a great location, staff was friendly, parking was free, rooms aren't the Hilton but clean. We had an issue with a double charge (one from expedia; one from the Castle Inn) This was taken care of... 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.
