Nob Hill Inn is a most delightful boutique inn high on the steep hill a block away from the beautiful Grace Cathedral and yet still very convenient for enjoying the sights, museums and galleries we visited. We stayed 2 nights in a junior suite which included a separate sitting room, as well as a beautiful bed room with a large...

This large old house, converted to a small charming inn, is in a terrific location at the center of town. It is one long block up a very steep hill to Grace Cathedral; several blocks down to the main crossroads for tourist locations & cable cars; several blocks from Chinatown; close to lots of restaurants and delis. The rooms are...

A word of warning, if you book this hotel make sure your room does not face Taylor street.....it's an extremely noisy road ! I'd suggest making that a condition of your booking if possible. Otherwise it's quite charming and is well situated.

A very conveniently located hotel on Nob Hill. Very cute and quaint. Loved the afternoon tea service in the lobby and was particularly impressed with the very friendly and smiley staff at the front desk. My room was great with a huge bathroom, a very comfortable bed and a chaise longue (room 18). If there was one thing that was...

The Inn is a great place for a couple who likes to walk or use the cable cars to explore San Francisco. Staff is very accommodating, many neighborhood shops for wine, fresh fruits, laundry service are close by. Two cable car routes are just a couple of blocks away, as well as several close by restaurants (definitely try Roxanne). Upper...

Keeping this 100 plus year old Inn in excellent shape must be a full time job yet management has mastered this task. The general manager is always about completing task after task keeping the Inn in tip top shape. We checked in for two nights in a street front top floor two bed/two bath suite. Full kitchen and two large...

We are an older couple that likes to explore. This Inn filled the bill. The staff (Tim, Mehrnaz and Bjorn) were very friendly and helpful. The room (#10) was quaint; perfect for our 3 night stay. Close to neighborhood markets for purchasing fruit and wine. Three blocks from a great restaurant, Roxanne's Cafe. (Ana is a terrific waitstaff person.) Never...

The perfect place to stay in San Francisco, away from tourist throngs but accessible to everywhere. A friendly welcome after a long flight, to a place that felt original, what more could you want. Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area.

I stayed one night here. Room was ok. Dated decor and no windows, but ok. Next day I checked out and asked to leave bags until the evening, advising that one had a very fragile item in it and it wasn't to be moved. I was told that there was no room to lock them in and that I could...

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.

“We went the inexpensive route so our room was on Taylor which is quite busy. The noise did not interfere with our sleep.”
  • The real challenge. Thank heavens I didn't take the 1st shower.
  • Our sitting area in room.
  • Constant daylight with privacy.
  • A challenge for short people.
  • Great mattress in room 10.
  • Side sitting room on main floor.
