What a great company with great customer service. We have use them for our last 3 visits and were given excellent prices and quality vehicles each time. If you don't want to put the deposit on a card they will take cash. They hold it and you get it back as you paid it. So we always give pounds and... More

we were put in a very small room on the 4th floor. The room gets very stuffy when it is warm outside. There is no air con. The double bed is pushed against the wall. The mattress is limp and sinks in the middle. The carpet smells, indeed the whole building smells of some one who haven't had a wash... More

This place is singularly the most awful place I have ever stayed. I booked 2 nights as a party of 4 when visiting Alcatraz, firstly the location was good but that really is where the positive experience ends! Upon arrival you have to go through a huge steel door and the receptionist took nearly 5 mins before even acknowledging us!... More

Even though we were there for a week it was a good area, near Trader Joes and clean rooms. It would have been a better stay if it was more customer oriented, specifically with the lack of elevator and the WiFi off and on. I would truly recommend the place for short stays, and highly recommend to the hotel a... More

The location of the hotel was great, not right downtown, but very close. Near to the BART station and bus stops. Refrigerator and microwave in our room. Price was great, the only thing was there is not wifi in the room but they do have it in the living room. They also have self serve laundry. little expensive, but convince.

First of all my fiancé and I had a comfortable happy stay on the 4th floor at the Cable Car Court hotel located on 1499 Calofornia Street. We got a studio room with its own private bathroom (or toilet and shower room). Secondly Cable Car Court Hotel is more of a block of furnished apartments than a hotel (meaning it... More

the location of the hotel is good, price is reasonable. Location and prize are the highlights of the hotel. Room and common areas are clean. Washing machine and dryers available for $2.5 each (in 25c coins).

We recently stayed at the cable car for a week. We had a very good experience. Great value for San Francisco. The room is small, however it was exceptionally clean. There was a fridge and microwave which was convenient. Staff were very helpful with any need we had. The cable car line runs directly in front of the hotel. Some... 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.
