    A Nice Surprise”

    Room, Bed, Staff

    I only stayed here for one night but I was pleasantly surprised when I got there. This isn't usually the type of hotel that I would stay in but after being in San Francisco many times now and always trying new places to stay, I decided to give Nob Hill a try since it was well priced and a good location and I decided to try something different. I thought it looked a bit stuffy but when I got there and saw my room it had lots of charm and quality. The bed was fantastic and I felt like I could have been in another place, in another time. It's not the usual modern look at all, it had old style charm and comfort. The lady behind the desk was very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was more of an afterthought but appreciated all the same. I think the next time I come to the city I might just give this one another go.

    Unbelievable”

    Location in downtown, fascinating interier, reasonable price

    Our stay in the Nob Hill Hotel was fantastic. We chose it because of very low price on Agoda.com. One night cost a little more that 100 USD whereas all other hotel were twice more expensive. The interior of the hotel is unique. It is built as a middle age castle with comfortable rooms equipped with а forged bed, a lot of canopies and art pictures on the walls. Really great for the couples. At 6 p.m. wine with cheese were served in the hall which was very pleasant. There was only one bad thing - the presence of homeless people on the street near the hotel as downtown is very close.

    I wanna keep this place a secret”

    I was looking for a small and quaint hotel but was afraid to end up in a dingy place in SF. I'm glad that I ventured and tried the Nob Hill Hotel. My room was clean and the people at the reception were very nice. The hotel is not located along the public transportation routes so I used Uber a lot during my stay. Will definitely stay there again on my next trips to San Francisco.

    Stay At The Nob Hill Hotel”

    A really nice place to stay, especially with the complimentary cheese & wine sessions every day. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was well placed for walking about and for catching the Muni transport across San Francisco. The old-style elevator was an interesting challenge and we stayed in a king-size room which provided more space. Overall, we were very happy with our choice of this hotel.

    Cute, quaint, but noisy”

    The hotel was perfect for my needs. The per night price was great considering San Francisco hotel prices overall. The room was clean, even if old-ish but it well maintained without that feeling of stuffiness and smelly old. The bed was comfortable and cozy lending itself to a good night sleep. The head and foot boards where metal frame and heavy and stuck out from the corners of the bed lending them and my feet to hit them repeatedly. No fun! The worst part was the noise. Every time time someone flushed, showered or ran any water in the rooms it seemed the pipes rattled loudly and it transmitted thru my room. Quite noisy in the morning, but did settle down in the evening. Hotel staff was pleasant but not very engaging. Overall, it was well worth the price I paid.

    Good location, great staff, simple amenities”

    It's an older hotel but in a great central location for our purposes. Nob Hill is far enough away from the bad areas and close enough to the good ones without being too loud. About a 10 minute walk to most places, and a block or so away from the bus line or cable car. BART station is a bit of a trek though. Not much of a view from our room, but the room was spacious (2 beds and walk-in closet). There's no breakfast included, but we really liked the free coffee and citrus-infused water in the lobby. And there were evenings where they provided free wine. Staff was always friendly and responsive. Sheets & towels were clean. Shower had plenty of hot water, and the bathroom was modern enough. Definitely a good value and worth recommending.

    Good value but a little old. ”

    This hotel is good value for money. But the location is not the most ideal because you either have to Uber everywhere or walk up many steep hills to get to the tourist spots. If you're in for a little exercising this is ideal, but if you're not the walking kind then perhaps not. We had the 2 X twin bed room. It was rather small for 4 pax because we literally had no place to open our luggages. Walking room only! The staff are helpful and friendly and the complimentary evening wine & cheese were good benefits to this hotel. The only hotel elevator looked like something used in an Al Capone movie of the 20s. So if you're nervous about the freakishly dangerously looking lifts, ask for a room in the 2nd level (more walking!!!). If you're a history buff, photo opt! Overall, we enjoyed the hotel. But looking back, the walking did us a lot of good because we over ate every day we were at San Francisco. :)

    What a surprise!”

    Location, staff performance, room cleanliness and comfort

    I booked a few hours before I checked in because of some last minute changes to my travel plans. I had the lowest of expectations and boy was I surprised! The hotel is old but is well maintained, the bed is very comfortable and the bathroom has just been renovated. The room is very clean. The nearest MUNI bus stop is just a 3 min walk. I walked to union square for about 15 min and I felt safe. The only problem that I had was that I missed the free breakfast because I overslept for 2 hours which is not the hotel's fault. I would stay at the Nob Hill again!

    3 days in San Fran ”

    We stayed there 4 days / 3 nights & the staff were lovely and helpful. Arrived from the airport via the train and then tram which was hard work considering 3 big bags. Decided to get an uber on the return as it was 30 dollars and 20 minutes. Breakfast was ok considering other negative reviews elsewhere. The room also was ok but could have a bit of sprucing up as was a little dated. There was a bonus with the wine at 6pm whoch was appreciated. The room has relatively easy access to all the commercial & tourist areas. However there was a bit an issue with the number of apparent homeless not just near the hotel but across San Fran.

    Charming experience for an overnight stay”

    We just needed to stay for a night before going over to my cousin’s place up in Pinole and Nob Hill was a comfortable and sweet stay even if it was just for 12 hours. We flew in from LAX and into SFO by 11:30pm, took a 20-minute Lyft ride, and was warmly accommodated at the front desk. There was just 1 receptionist and he held the door open for us, gave us complete information (what to expect from them, available amenities, what to do nearby, what will be charged on my credit card, etc.). He was awesome! I love hotels with character and Nob Hill had that and was charming. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. It was in the middle of everything so it was easy to get to anywhere. Obviously, the fixtures were old considering that it was built in 1906 but everything (except for the phone) worked. Too bad it was a short stay. But I would surely stay there again!

    Nob Hill Hotel is a small boutique hotel in an old building. The rooms are small and a bit stuffy however in a chic, arty presentation. Due to the lack of size I am glad i only stayed one night.

    Very Average for the Price”

    The hotel just didn't seem to be good value for the money, which sadly is typical of San Francisco. But it seemed a bit lacking even compared to other hotels in this price range where we've stayed. We arrived during a record heat wave; there was no AC or fans for temps close to 100 degrees. Our room was very stuffy with poor air circulation due to the closeness of adjacent buildings. Facilities and furnishings seemed worn, though clean. Our room was never cleaned during our 3-day stay. Most rooms are noisy due to ambulances pulling into an adjacent hospital 24 hours a day. The hotel is not really on Nob Hill, but lower on the slope going up to it. Iffy neighborhood at night; many street people. Would not recommend it for solo women. It is a steep climb to restaurants at the top. Difficult to access downtown by public transport except expensive cable car down California Street. Breakfast was sad, even by my very minimal standards--two kinds of cereal, bread and a few stale baked goods. You are better off self-catering from nearby Trader Joe's or checking out some cute coffee shops (Nook, Soap Box) further up Hyde Street. On the plus side, the rooms were actually on the large side for this price range, with a roomy (for SF) closet to store bags, and bathtub in the bathroom, the coffee was good, and there was nightly complimentary California wine from 5:30 to 7. But all in all, very average, if that, for the price.

This is a very old hotel the location was not that great we were on the very edge of nob hill right next to the tenderloin in which there were many homeless. The room was clean and felt like a small apartment with our own porch and deck off the living room.

    We chose Nob Hill as our last night in San Francisco because we wanted somewhere cheap to stay. The staff was nice, room was somewhat clean(could’ve used a vacuum) and we had a place for our luggage. Upon our arrival the elevator didn’t work, my husband had to hold the hair dryer into the plug so I could dry my hair, the worst of it we could hear everything from yelling in the street to a bunch of girls giggling until 4 am. All in all we got what we paid for.
