This is very old and hasn't been renovated for a while. It was comfortable and clean. It had free parking. The bed and pillows were comfortable . It was about 1/2 hour walk to the pier. It was a $10 cab fare. There was convenience stores available about 300 metres away and some nice restaurants close by. It had a... More

We had a few days in San Francisco and booked the Castle Inn based on location and price. Its a good location for restaurants, but a bit of a hike down to the wharf. I wouldn't recommend it if you wanted an easy stroll to Fishermans's wharf. Having said that we used Uber to get around and it didn't worry... More

Set in a great location for a healthy walk to the Wharf via Lombard St. The room was basic but clean and the breakfast was something to miss! Parking was underground but there was plenty even though we were there in the summer holidays. Taxi ride to the start of the trolley bus which was only $11

Stayed here for a 3 night stay on a family trip. This has motel type feel with rooms off a balcony. Doesn't look the most appealing from outside especially when you arrive late at night however the rooms look to be recently refurbished and are lovely and clean and comfortable. In room coffee machine, microwave and fridge. Breakfast is provided... More

Parking is a little tough...they have free parking under the hotel BUT it is like a game of Tetris to get your car out of the parking spot. Breakfast is pretty good, there's granola bars, oranges, OJ, yogurt, pastries, oatmeal along with coffee and hot water. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the rooms which also had a... More

Nice hotel, clean but slightly out dated in our modern hipster world. Great location! Makes you feel like you're living there. Rooms are decent size. Parking available underneath hotel and in lot beside hotel which is a HUGE plus in San Francisco. Neighborhood is safe. The "free breakfast" is more like light snacks... Oatmeal, fruit, and a processed (not fresh)... More

We were a family of 5 who stayed in a room with one bedroom and a livingroom were the 3 children was sleeping. The rooms was clean, and the beds were good to sleep in. The bathroom was small but ok. A very simple breakfast was served in the reception. Overall, our impression is that San Fransisco got very expensive... More

Really friendly staff. they will help you wherever you can. although it says breakfeast included do not expect a real breakfeast. they have some yoghurts some fruits, oatmeal and thats it. but the free parking and free wifi at this location is just great!! you can hear the street but it does not disturb. I recommend this hotel

This level of dissatisfaction with the hotel services happens to me extremely rarely. I paid over $ 200 a night for a standard, which in the center of Paris or Rome would cost me a maximum of 80 euros. And do not tell me, please, that this is because the cost of living in the US is very high. In... More

Great location and free parking. Breakfast left much to be desired (watery orange juice), but staff were great. Room not quite finished renovating, but adequate. Good Chinese restaurant around corner on Polk

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.
