“Nice downtown hotel”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Nice downtown hotel, centrally located. Rooms are clean and rueful, "Victorian" style furnished. In the evening there is a complimentary wine-and-cheese hour, but it is in the lobby, which is not the best solution.
Very helpful and friendly staff!

Room Tip: We had first night a king room which was in need of renovation and very very small. For the next nig...

I traveled for business and this hotel rated at 3 stars with corporate booking too. I had to store my suitcase on my bed the rooms are so tiny. The elevator is barely functional so be prepared to hall your suitcase. The fitness center has one out dated treadmill and a few weights and equipment that doesn't work. Good Nob Hill location but better off staying in Union Square for better value.

Excellent Staff. Made an error with the reservation, the searched a room for two of us at another hotel (group of 4), gave us the only left room much cheaper and did not charge us anything for our error (booked one day too much). Rooms are clean, bathrooms are new and very nice, rooms are cute. Area is ok, parking is rather expensive.

This little hotel was quite a find. The staff was super nice and friendly. The lobby gives you that San Francisco feel. The rooms are a little small but it makes you feel like home. Honestly, if you're looking for a reasonably priced hotel in San Fran and you just wanna tour the city, this would be the perfect hotel for you. Parking was nice a block away in a garage if you don't want valet.

It was so good to drive into the heart of the city, check in to something completely different and feel comfortable, safe and welcomed. Complimentary wine and cheese each evening plus a breakfast included made for a relaxing stay in unique if quirky surroundings. Clean room, comfortable huge bed. We could walk to all major sights and the cable car was very close too.

I stayed at the Nob Hill Hotel with two girlfriends. It was such a fun experience. The service was wonderful - they had a bottle of wine waiting for us - and the location was great. We loved the boutique style. It was a nice change of pace from a typical hotel.

If I could, I would have given this dump a no star rating. Was it the peeling paint and wallpaper in the room? Was it the toilet and sink that were stopped up when I checked in? Was it the room key card that didn't work? Was it the room that was so small that I had to turn sideways to get by the bed? Was it the window without a shade but with a shear curtain? Was it the unhelpful desk clear who didn't give a damn when I complained about all of the above? It was indeed all of the above. I travel about 50% of the time, and this rates among the 2-3 worst hotels I've ever stayed at in the world, including in developing countries.
