This hotel had a great location in an interesting neighborhood and clean, comfortable rooms. It also had a nice continental breakfast and a wine and cheese happy hour every evening. No problems to speak of. But the reason for my very positive review was the staff's helpfulness. We launched a 8-day bike tour from the hotel. They were very helpful... More

We like older buildings. This one's had an idiosyncratic makeover, a modern rococo (think "hair salon on hallucinogens") that works unevenly. Some might find it quirky-hip, fun; others, tasteless-garish. Location is more "Tender Nob" than Nob Hill, fine if you don't like alpine climbs and want closer to downtown. Rate reflects non-premier location. With our "savings," we splurged on the... More

Not even close to good. The staff are not helpful or friendly. I chose this hotel for Wifi as we were traveling from a different country. The wifi was down more often then it was working. We were stuck in a city with no internet, so no uber, no way to get around & were directed to a supermarket to... More

My husband had surgery at St. Francis Memorial, which is very close. We did not need great luxury for this stay. The bed was comfortable. A few soft spots in the floor. The towels were stained. Plumbing & wiring all worked fine. We enjoyed the evening wine reception to meet other guests, although selections were from Gallo. The restaurant on... More

Lots of vintage character so lots of points for trying to keep that alive - the elevator and the stairs, the lobby all have that character. The rooms - we booked a king size to ensure enough room and the brass bed was large and comfy. Having character does not mean you have to miss out on modern amenities -... More

after reading reviews of this hotel we were a little concerned. However, we found it very enjoyable. Hotel was clean, remodeled and rooms bigger than expected. It's not a big hotel not are the rooms big. Most who have travelled New York, San Francisco, Japan Etc will know up front rooms and space all around is smaller. Our room 204... More

Wonderful quaint & quirky. Stayed in the Penthouse with the hot tub. Perfect honeymoon room. Very romantic top floor room with double shower, double basins and jewelled cushions on a luxurious bed. Stayed for a week in the lovely SF. Would recommend X

Bed was good, room was nice and roomie (suite), not clean, hall ways smell like cat pee, vending machines don't work, has a rugged Victorian style with old school elevator. Free coffee and free wine (at certain times) in the lobby. Great location for walking to union square. Beware of tenderloin at night (ask for walking directions).

Stayed for 3 nights at the Nob Hill Hotel. The location was great for us. It was a 15 minute walk to Union Square. The hotel was very reasonably priced in comparison to a lot of SF hotels - we found the city to be pretty expensive in general. It was clean and very comfortable. Sure, it was worn in... More
