For the price and area this is 5 out of 5. The charm, cleanliness, staff and location were amazing. We stayed in the "Stanford" room which included a 2nd room with a pullout couch and TV. We stayed 5 nights. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is very central - a quick walk or cab ride to... More

The room contained a queen size four poster bed with canopy and a fireplace. The room had an anwar and two chairs. The bathroom had a claw foot tub, with a very... More

Perfect stay for 2 nights in beautiful San Francisco. Very friendly staff, very close to Union square and a real unique and charming athmosphere! The rooms are rather small but lovely decorated, the bathroom is like we are in the early 19s. We loved it!

This Victorian inn is situated a few minutes uphill from Union Square. The Victorian decor is nice, we had a junior suite which consisted of 2 small rooms one with a double bed the other with a sofa bed and a small bathroom. Although it looked nice to me it didn't feel cosy or a room that I could spent... More

Just a short stay of two nights, but during this time, all staff we came across were very friendly and extremely willing to help. Rooms were well maintained and very clean. Due to the age of the building it is worth noting that the room walls are paper thin - that means you hear your neighbours and your neighbours hear... More

Stayed 3 nights at the Nob Hill inn, San Fransisco. Lovely clean rooms, friendly staff and just a 5min taxi ride from the Bart station. Be careful if walking there are very steep hills! Tea and sherry available Every day from 1600, very English!!

We booked through a timeshare and were pleasantly surprised by the location. Walking was easy to: Chinatown, Financial district, Russian Hill, Fisherman's wharf, union square. And the transit system is super close. We were in room 11, which is TINY. 1 nightstand and 1 double bed. We felt a wee bit cramped. The bathroom was huge and comfortable. No AC,... More

This hotel's only saving grace is it's location. it is convenient to basically everywhere in the city. however, there are so, so, so many drawbacks. Firstly, the staff is inconsistent to say the least. when we first checked in, we were dropped off by my sister, a local, with whom the clerk gladly chatted up, while completely ignoring us. another...

Nob Hill Inn is a most delightful boutique inn high on the steep hill a block away from the beautiful Grace Cathedral and yet still very convenient for enjoying the sights, museums and galleries we visited.

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.
