Economical and decent accommodations

very reasonably priced with continental breakfast and free glass of wine at happy hour - room was very tight - not enough room to work on a computer despite free wi-fi. work out room is stuffy but okay. lovely location with nice views. staff were pleasant and it seemed to be a hit with foreign tourists. was just what I wanted for a business trip except for the tight room. but i was able to work in the breakfast room with wi-fi thoughout the building.

Good Location

This place is just 2 blocks downhill from one of the cable car routes.We were in room 207, which faces an interior air shaft open area. Lots of light, big old fashioned desk and new flat screen TV. Decorations are all Victorian, but some are really falling apart. Bed and bathroom both clean and fresh. Simple continental breakfast and very minimal wine hour at night ( jug Merlot and a pink wine!) Lots of local eateries on Sutter and on Post nearby, as well as a Walgreen's and small grocery store.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Local grocery store sold us a $14 day pass for ALL transportation except BART. With single rides on the cable car now $6 pp, this was worthwhile. Use on buses, trams, Muni as well.

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.

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.

Never been to an all friendly staffed hotel, wow!

I reserved a room for some friends from out of town and I did everything but stay in the hotel. I was waiting for my friends to come down from their room for breakfast and I was able to sort of just observer the lobby and happenings and I have to say the staff is really great at accommodating travelers. Any issue that needed attention they were able to help with. Directions, arriving too early, getting a cab, etc. They also have some cool furniture in the lobby.

Good place

Quite nice place to stay. Amazing Italian Bistro in the lobby. Helpful staff. Clean room, but no A/C at least at mine. The only concern I had was the window view and rug in corridors (it's too old). I do recommend.

First time in San Fran

Beautifully decorated, lavish and plush interior. Room 101 on the first floor is a phenomenal suite, and for the price I was blown away at the amenities provided in the room and around the hotel. Location couldn't have been any better, within walking distance to great places and great transit options. Highly recommended. Diego at the front desk was amazing!

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.
