Located right in the town so taking a trolley or bus will get you anywhere. Staff were very very nice and the room was clean. No issues no worries. This is an old fashioned hotel but it's very cute and nice.

Nice place and cool fire escape

This was a good place to stay and nearby to my friends in Russian Hill. The room was pretty small but worked well for me. The walls were a bit thin though so you could hear muffled conversations and laughter from other guests. Overall it was a solid stay!

Nob Hill Hotel

Nice hotel, though my room was a bit hot due to the lack of A/C (I guess it's not really necessary to have most of the year). No complaints about the staff, rooms, or hotel cleanliness. Location is a bit far from conference sites in the area, but so long as you are willing to walk 1 km or so, you'll be fine.

Comfy but noisy if you get a room in the front of the building.

As a female costumer, first time in San Francisco, I felt safe and in a good location. The staff is helpful and kind. I couldn't check in until 3pm but I left my luggage and go for a city-tour. If you have a restricted diet and have meals with you, no worries, they will storage your meals in their fridge until you check-in. The Hotel is really close to the Union Square, and from there you can walk on Market Street towards the Ferry Building and try the best oysters ever at Hog Island Oyster! Next time in this wonderful city, I will stay in the same hotel but in the back side of the building. The decoration is something to consider if you prefer something more sterile.

Golden Gate Park. It's 45min by bus from the Hotel, but once you're there you spend the whole day with lots of activities and leisure. It's such a wonderful place to visit. De Young Museum have sublime expositions and a breathtaking view from its tower, where you will also find gorgeous souvenirs. The California Academy of Sciences is a must go! It's magnificent. And, of course, don't loose the Conservatory of Flowers.

Great Stay!

I often stay in SF, and mainly at the large chain hotels. Due to the city being jammed full, I opted to say at the Nob Hill Hotel. I got a great rate, the room was quiet, and the staff extremely friendly. Sure the rooms are not to my taste, and the bathrooms need a bit of a rework, but everything was clean.
