Beautiful classic hotel in San Francisco

Pros: Location and a classic San Francisco Hotel
We stayed in the business suite with our son for 4 nights, we each had a room, rooms are classic San Francisco Hotel, full of character, not modern and trendy. Just what we expect. Nice complimentary wine and cheese each night, very nice. Staff were very helpful, room made up each day, breakfast was nice, quick and easy when in a hurry, would definitely stay again, great location.

Faded old world charm

Pros: The charm of yesteryear, the rickety lift, the beautiful large 'marble' double bathroom
Cons: Improved voyer entrance lighting, bigger breakfast area, both chairs in the 'penthouse room' which i was in needed repairing. Cheaper valet parking
Location: Convenient to stores, and cable car lines .
Good location, helpful staff, but very tired and 'run down'. Lots of Minor repairs needed to spruce things up.

Nice hotel for the price very clean and handy loca

Pros: The most important thing to me is cleanliness so I guess that is what I liked.
Cons: If anything double glazed windows I guess as it is close by a hospital and sirens are noisy during the night.
Location: A short walk to the city and all visitor transportation requirements easily accessible.
We enjoyed our stay with free help yourself breakfast and every afternoon a supple for wine, cheese and biscuits to enjoy. Friendly staff.

Small sized hotel of an old style

This is an older style hotel in a slightly remote part of San Francisco If you don't mind walking and venturing up hill then you will be fine. The complimentary breakfast was nice. The hotel rooms are in a need of some TLC.

Nice hotel. Pleasant staff

Nice hotel walking distance to most areas if you don't mind hitting the pavement. Room was well equipped, although it had as bit of an odour. Staff were very friendly and helpful and it was nice to have breakfast included.

Great Hotel to finish off our wonderful holiday

Pros: Location was excellent. Rooms was a good size and bed was comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Cons: The lift - a little difficult to keep door open and get luggage in the lift.
Nob Hill Hotel was a great unique hotel. Great location. The room was a great size, bed comfortable. Close to public buses, so was easy to get around town. Staff were very friendly and helped us with all questions. Will definitely stay here again when we come back to San Fran.

First San Fran visit!

Location: Easy location for walking and exploring all that San Fran has to offer.
Loved Nob Hill Hotel. Was slightly concerned after reading some negative comments, but we thoroughly enjoyed it. It is an older hotel, and that is what provides it's charm! Beautiful decor, comfortable rooms. We had a lovely dinner in the restaurant. Breakfast was basic, but definitely adequate. Would definitely recommend it.
