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. We stayed 2 nights in a junior suite which included a separate sitting room, as well as a beautiful bed room with a large... More

This large old house, converted to a small charming inn, is in a terrific location at the center of town. It is one long block up a very steep hill to Grace Cathedral; several blocks down to the main crossroads for tourist locations & cable cars; several blocks from Chinatown; close to lots of restaurants and delis. The rooms are... More

A word of warning, if you book this hotel make sure your room does not face Taylor street.....it's an extremely noisy road ! I'd suggest making that a condition of your booking if possible. Otherwise it's quite charming and is well situated.

A very conveniently located hotel on Nob Hill. Very cute and quaint. Loved the afternoon tea service in the lobby and was particularly impressed with the very friendly and smiley staff at the front desk. My room was great with a huge bathroom, a very comfortable bed and a chaise longue (room 18). If there was one thing that was... More

The Inn is a great place for a couple who likes to walk or use the cable cars to explore San Francisco. Staff is very accommodating, many neighborhood shops for wine, fresh fruits, laundry service are close by. Two cable car routes are just a couple of blocks away, as well as several close by restaurants (definitely try Roxanne). Upper... 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.
