Lay Over

We had a need to lay over in San Francisco for the night. This is a clean, convenient and reasonably priced hotel. Nice restaurant on site. Only drawback is that the rooms are claustrophobic.

When check in the hotel, already listening the current guest argued the bad room condition with counter staff. The room I stayed in, water is keep dripping from ceiling when people upstairs using the washroom. One young counter staff is very not nice, there is a senior staff talk much nicer. Won't stay here any more!

Good value & location, but not the nicest room

This is a great place for a business traveller who isn't going to spend much time in the room. Definitely could use a thorough cleaning and the room was quite small. But perfectly usable and a great location. And the staff were friendly.

Good for a one night stay

Room was small but perfect because we were only there for a night. They have parking but its $44 a night! We found a parking garage a block away and paid $20. Only 10 minute walk to union square.. About 20 to the wharf. Overall a good experience. It has a nice atmosphere that takes you back to 1920s. We got a good deal too so if it presents itself again we will definitely use it.

Small, and Lacking

While on a hybrid birthday/business trip to San Francisco, we decided to stay at the Nob Hill hotel. The location seems to be quite quaint and located relatively near the SF hotspots. However that is where the good parts of the hotel end, expensive parking ($40/night+tip), tiny room (<200 sf), a bathroom that smelled moldy, classical fixtures that feel out of place, and a bed that was scratchy and felt like it was about to break! I would recommend this hotel to those travelers whose objectives are either to just sleep, or enjoy historic hotels, but to all other travelers: you can do better!

Over the top decorations, but good value.

While the neon sign outside and the old school elevator put me off initially, I found the room to be clean, comfortable and quiet. Considering the price, the Nob Hill Hotel offers a good value proposition for travelers on a budget wishing to stay in the downtown area.

Perfectly fine

Good for what I was looking for -- no frills, good location. It's old and charming. Not as up to date as a chain hotel, but everything was clean and the staff were efficient and friendly.

Small, affordable, convenient

It's a small hotel; the rooms are tiny and a bit dated. My room was clean, the bed was nice, and the staff were all very helpful. A nice cheap option in Nob Hill.
