I spent one night at the Nob Hill hotel, on August 13/14. The location was ideal, the decor was pleasant and the room, though rather small, was quite comfortable. But I was disappointed. The staff, though not rude, were not particularly friendly or welcoming (when I arrived, the doorman - engaged in a conversation - gave me no help lifting my bag out of the taxi, despite the fact that I had a broken arm, which was obvious from the sling I was wearing). The wireless internet in my roo was so slow as to be not worth using - though it did improve in the morning, But my biggest dissappointment was breakfast. The breakfast room is small with few tables. So many people had to queue for 10 or 15 minutes before there was a place for them to sit down. I was lucky in that I got a table quickly, though I had to share it, which was not ideal. The content of the breakfast was pretty dire: just sliced bread, cereal and apples, with the cheapest sort of factory-made jam. The orange juice tasted unpleasant, No eggs, cut fruit, yoghurt or the other sorts of things that much cheaper hotels provide. One final thing: the lift has old-fashioned doors which swing shut in a nasty way that can hurt people.
