    If you are looking for a bed and breakfast like inn thats smaller with decorations that typify the region of Nob Hill with a clawfoot bathtub, then this may be the place for you. The staff is extremely nice and always willing to do what they can to make your visit a great one. They are knowledgeable of the area and can even set up tours for you. Although its a bit of a walk uphill from Union Square, its nice to get away from all the craziness of downtown noise and disruption.

    We found the Nob Hill Inn at the last minute after a total nightmare booking at the Renoir Hotel. We were very happy to get a room the day we needed to stay even though it was a big festival weekend. We were checked in by the efficient but slightly disinterested staff, and were very pleasantly surprised by the room. It was absolutely beautiful. The rooms in the hotel are designed to look like Victorian bedrooms in a rooming house so each is different and very richly appointed in a homey style. It was a romantic setting for sure, even though the rooms are small, and the bathroom was beautiful and very modern. The location is really lovely, located in a residential area on the hillside. For a short stay we'd stay here again.

    Real San Francisco.  Fabulous location.  My daughter and I stayed at the Nob Hill Inn for a week during her college spring break.  We had a 2 bedroom / 2 bath suite that truly felt like a warm, inviting home when we returned each evening.  If you prefer generic hotel rooms with room service, this isn't for you. However, if you want a great location and wonderful staff, stay here!  The location is perfect...we walked everywhere and only took a taxi a couple late evenings.  We walked to Improv comendy club, North Beach restaurants, China Town, etc.  Will definitely return to stay here on our next visit.

    It is great to stay here because of its location - expect other areas to need improvement.

    The hotel needs help.  While the architecture and appointments are in the Victorian style, some elements haven't been tended to since the Victorian era.  Our bathtub had cracks to match the mold on the wall.  It wobbled on the marble floor, which became slick after every show because the poor plumbing combined with the molding, terrible curtain, spilled water all over the marble tile.  The bathroom had no ventilation, unless you opened the window and exposed yourself.  All of this "joy" was crammed into a space barely fit for a closet  (ironically, our closet was large enough for a full bathroom).  The bedroom was tiny - most times, one had to lean over the bed to make room for the other to pass.

    Outlets had broken panels, lights were far too dim (perhaps to hide the cracks?), carpets were awful - so dirty, nothing short of a steam-cleaning would improve them, but then again, they were in such bad condition, they probably wouldn't survive the steam-cleaning.

    The mattress had signs of being old but sheets and everything were clean.  On a personal note, I cannot stand hotels that pile ornamental pillows on a bed.

    Staff was never more than civil, but never less than effective.

    There is no parking for this hotel, paid or otherwise.  If there is a valet to take your car to a garage located elsewhere, the valet was never seen and there is no garage within a block.  As it's located on Nob Hill, count yourself very lucky to find street-side parking within 2 blocks (or 6 blocks, on Friday & Saturday nights).  There are paid garages, but nothing closer than 2 blocks.

    The location is fantastic, and is the real reason to stay here.  Nob Hill is one of the most charming, delightful neighborhoods in San Francisco, and it is surrounded by other equally charming areas.  It's hilly, but anyone complaining of hills while going to San Francisco isn't thinking clearly.

    A quaint Victorian, really on Nob Hill.  

    Staycations are the new getaways, and when My Lady decided to use a timeshare week that was going to expire, she booked us into this home away from home.  Nob Hill is the hill that overlooks the Financial District and Union Square, although just one block from the summit, our view was of the traffic at Pine and Taylor.  

    The room was nice enough, about 15 x 20 feet.  It was furnished with a queen-size bed, an armoire, two armchairs, and a secretary.  A converted gas chandelier on a dimmer switch complemented a clubby mix of masculine wallpaper and feminine curtains.  Classic sash windows easily opened to cool the room.  A clawfoot cast iron tub with a brass shower and curtains graced the bathroom.  

    We settled in, and began to explore our new neighborhood.  The wifi was down, so our planning consisted of reading an in-room tourist magazine.  One nice thing about magazines is you don't need an internet connection to read them.  We discovered, as we expected, that the Union Square area, Nob Hill, and Russian Hill, form a top quality neighborhood.  

    Unfortunately, the traffic outside was a bit much for us.  At the end of the weekend we left the hustle and bustle of Nob Hill for our peaceful, quiet home in Western Addition.  Oh, the irony!

    Very comfortable room: large enough for a Queen/King bed (I can't tell the difference) two night stands, a small dresser, a wardrobe (no seriously), and a fainting couch (FOR REAL).  Pretty much adorable. Bathroom is clean, modern, all you need, etc.  The place is clean, quiet, and the BEST price you will find in the area.  It's a FABULOUS location and a really good deal.  Don't get too excited about the breakfast since it's not that exciting, but the afternoon tea and sherry should make up for it.  This is really one of the best deal's you'll find in this over-priced isthmus.  Book your room.

    The Inn was great! Nice place within walking distance of many attractions. The rooms feel cosy and much more comfortable than a typical high rise.

    Great home base for my San Francisco vacation. I think we paid about $150/night including taxes (which are about $25) for a small, charming room. I mostly have very positive things to say.


    1. Extremely friendly staff who can answer all your questions about the city. The first night, the woman at the front desk gave us a map and circled everything we might want to see, and even crossed out areas where we shouldn't go after dark. We chatted with the staff every morning before leaving and they gave us tips about navigating the sights.

    2. Location -- you're not staying in the super touristy area, so you get a more authentic feel for the city. There are great local restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries and a Trader Joe's to stock up on snacks. As previous poster said, the cable car is 2 blocks away, but the Muni Metro and buses are a short *downhill* walk away. The neighborhood itself has plenty to offer -- we visited the Cable Car Museum (FREE) and spent a couple mornings reading in the park that's a block north.

    3. Charm and comfort -- when else can you stay in a Victorian mansion? Our room came with everything we needed -- comfortable, clean bed, stocked bathroom but in a historical, charming building. I'll take that over a Courtyard Marriott any day.

    If I had any minor complaints...
    1. Water pressure in the shower was a little weak, but it got hot enough which is more important. I also understand this comes with an old building.

    2. Our particular room (#5) had windows that faced another wall -- literally 12" away, so we got no natural light. Again, I understand that's what we get for the price/location. It seems like the larger suites have street-facing windows.

    A wonderfully Victorian place to stay in a great central location of SF, with big and clean rooms in two gorgeous old mansions that have been perfectly upgraded.

    The Nob Hill Inn has regular rooms plus a couple of suites (where we stayed) that are really two BR apartments with a living room, a small but complete kitchen, dining table plus two full baths including a master suite. You could have a party in the master bath, I'm not kidding.  Three Tvs, ridiculous.  Sleeps six, absolutely perfect for a family of four, way more space and costs less than two hotel rooms.

    Very convenient and pretty good continental breakfast has cereals, muffins, juices, yogurt and pleasant table service. Outstanding coffee too!

    Their free and fast wifi made all of us happy. The apple airport extreme was in our suite so yeah, we got a good signal :)

    Bring your walking shoes and prepare for hill climbing!! This lower Nob Hill neighborhood is very residential with only a bit of retail so you'll be walking for everything. Street car ($6, ouch) is the only public transit in the area and parking is a complete nightmare. Chinatown starts about 10 minutes away on foot.

    This Inn participates in the timeshare network run by VRI so you can swap "weeks" for a stay here.

    I give it five stars because it was huge, clean and we got a base rate of three Benjamins per night. A suite this nice in a city this popular could easily have cost twice that!

    We loved staying here.

    So long as your expectations are correct, you will be blown away. I mean this in the sense that it's a quaint, old-fashioned inn with a wonderful staff and a welcoming atmosphere. It won't be the roomiest, most high tech stay you've ever had, but it's the best for what it is.

    That said, they have free wifi and TV, so you aren't in the stone ages. The decor of this hotel is bested only by the staff's warm, family-like demeanor. Our room had a queen-sized canopy bed, crown molding, a claw-footed bathtub, and floor-to-ceiling curtains on every window. Oh, and a stained-glass window in the bathroom.

    My only complaint is really my own fault. I sleep with the sound of a fan and forgot to bring one. I had a hard time sleeping to the sound of intermittent traffic and dead silence. However, the silk sheets and numerous pillows made for a wonderfully cozy bed.

    They offer tea and coffee any time you like and the decor reminds me of a Hitchcock film (in a very good way). If this is up your alley, I promise you won't be disappointed. I love Nob Hill Inn and I shall be coming back.

    Nob Hill Inn is the CUTEST place in San Francisco. I am relocating from NYC to San Francisco in 3 weeks, and flew out to find a place to live before I move out here for good. I stayed at the Nob Hill Inn and the entire staff was incredibly helpful and super friendly. I've never been to SF at all before, so knew nothing about any areas, and they were so patient and genuinely interested in helping me out, giving me tips in each neighborhood, great food to try, things to do, safe vs sketchy neighborhoods, etc. They were so great.

    The atmospohere at the hotel is SO adorable & quaint. Coming from high-speed city life NYC, it was so refreshing to stay at a place where they remember your name an have adorable "home-like" decor. Every day when I left my apt, I would come back and it was SPOTLESS. Every day the carpet was freshly vacuumed, everything was cleaned, bed made, shower refreshed, etc.

    Also - amazing location. Right in the heart of the happening things in the city. I was able to walk to the stores downtown, or to the shore & to the happening areas like Nob Hill and the Haight. Super easy access to everywhere, which was a huge plus for me since I had a lot of ground to cover.

    And the best part? I'd come in each afternoon after trekking around the city to be greeted by "Tea and Crumpet time." Every day from 4-6 they actually have tea and crumpet time...with shandy! The spread is so absolutely adorable and made my day when I'd walk in exhausted from the day, and they'd tell me to grab my snacks and tea and to go relax. They really went above and beyond any other hotel I've been to to make me feel "at home." I stayed for 5 nights and their hospitality never swayed. I also don't typically write reviews unless something is really good or really bad - and this was an outstanding experience so I felt the need to let you all know!
