Nob Hill is the second highest hill in San Francisco so it offers great views of the bay and Bay bridge down California Street. Travel to and from Nob Hill is also easy using the California or Powell Street cable cars which run regularly throughout the day and into the night. Nob Hill, however, is a very desirable neighbourhood to live in. Consequently, accommodation in this part of the city can be expensive. It is, however, a safe neighbourhood which I felt comfortable walking around in late at night.
