We are a family of four from the UK, and have been travelling all over California, Nevada, and are currently in Utah. We've been in over 10 hotels so far and this little gem is by far the best! Wonderful, friendly staff, great location for the city (and what an amazing city), modern, clean rooms and bathroom, and free parking!...

Clean, excellent location, FREE PARKING which is a very rare to find in central San Francisco, and very friendly staff, the guy in the lobby helped us in guiding us of the places to go on SF. Would go back definitely

This is a great budget hotel in SF. It all sums up to location and free parking (even though the underground parking is very very tight). We were greeted to a clean room with the view of the street. We thought the noise was going to be a concern but when you close the windows, they keep all the noise...

We have stayed multiple times at this hotel in San Francisco. I like it for the price, the friendly service, and the VERY comfortable large beds. This hotel is simple, but so great if you are in town for a game, a show, or a night on the town. You can walk to North Beach and Polk St restaurants and...

I stayed here for 3 nights with my husband and we were very surprised at the high standard of accommodation for the money we paid. We had a king room and it was very roomy. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The dressing and wash room area was a decent size. However we couldn't get the plug to stay...

Location is key and for my stay in San Francisco I was looking for somewhere either within a walkable distance of the city or metro, so the Castle Inn ticked those boxes. My second requirement was parking which they also had…the underground parking I’ll admit was a nice little challenge for my driving abilities and having an SUV as my...

Stayed here and was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed, such as, fridge, microwave and hair dryer. The front desk staff was helpful and showed us a map of all major attractions. Although we arrived late for the continental breakfast they were gracious and pulled out selections for us. We did not have a car...

I stumbled across this establishment when researching hotels for San Francisco and am extremely happy that we did. They were very helpful from the time I contacted them on their website to the time we checked. It is located in the Nob Hill district which is central to everything, you can walk to most main areas. From these areas a...

The hotel isn't fancy but the price was right given comparisons to other hotels in the area, the parking is free and the location was perfect. The rooms were very clean and had been partially updated. The staff was amazing, giving us pointers on where all the sights were located and especially where to stay away from. The breakfast was...

Stayed one night before cruise. Arrived at 11 am and was pleasantly surprised that room was ready. Was checked in by very friendly and welcoming Damon, who gave us a map and pointed out and marked all the places we wanted to see. Lots of nice cozy restaurants all around the neighborhood. Had to walk up a flight of stairs...

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.

“Ask for a quiet room away from street noise and stairs”
  • Coffee maker, microwave and fridge in cupboard below
  • Our newly refurbished room - lots of room - full sized suitcases in the far corner.
  • Picture taken from bathroom
  • New shower and toilet room - bit of a squeeze, but adequate
  • This vanity is opposite toilet/shower room. So new, clean and tidy.
