  • We had a great time in San Francisco staying at Bianca's apartment. The location is perfect to catch public transport and is quiet and peaceful. The important things for us when we travel are that there is good wifi, good bed and good shower, that the place is clean. The apartment delivers on all of these as well having a nice kitchen and lots of light. Bianca is also an excellent host and communicated well with us. Would definitely stay there again.

  • Bb was a lovely host who was helpful and courteous. She left some breakfast food for us (bread, eggs, apples, milk, cheese,...). and made some great banana cakes for us too! The place was cosy, comfortable and clean.

    It is located in a quiet and safe area while being very close to transport and shops which are all within walking distance.

    Would definitely recommend this place to others.

    The apartment is very well placed in downtown. You are in the middle of everything to visit the beautiful city of San Francisco.
    The area is very good but we recommend not to walk to much the south to avoid approaching tenderloin district.

    The apartment is clean and cute, it has been arranged with taste. There is a good kitchen to cook. The bed is very good and beyond all, it is very quiet (windows are on the courtyard on a nice garden).

    Bianca is a very nice person, she is very pleasant to discuss with and attentive. When we arrived she has left some food in the fridge and she prepared a very good Taboulet. So nice for jet lagged people :-)
    She is reachable at any time and impressively responsive !

    We strongly recommend this place for both a touristic or business trip.

    L'appartement est très bien placé au centre ville. Il se situe au centre de toutes les activités pour visiter la magnifique ville de San Francisco.
    Le quartier est très bien mais nous recommandons de ne pas s'aventurer trop au sud pour éviter de s'approcher du quartier de Tenderloin.

    L'appartement est propre et mignon, il est arrangé avec goût. La cuisine est bien pour préparer ses propres plats. Le lit est très bon et par dessus tout, c'est extrêmement calme (les fenêtres donnent sur l'arrière court sur un joli jardin).

    Bianca est une personne sympathique et agréable pour discuter elle est aussi attentionnée. Lorsque nous sommes arrivé elle avait laisser de la nourriture dans le frigo et elle nous avait préparé un très bon taboulé. Très agréable pour des personnes "jet laggées" :-)
    Elle est joignable à tout moment et extrêmement réactive.

    Nous recommandons fortement cet endroit pour un voyage touristique ou business.

  • We had a great stay at Bb's apartment. The location was really convenient and central which made getting around town very (website hidden) was very responsive in answering questions and confirming the booking ahead of time and was there to meet us and show us around the apartment. During our stay she was also available to answer any questions we had. The apartment is cosy and comfortable and has everything you could need. Recommend and would stay here again.

  • My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Bb's apartment! Absolutely better than a hotel! Sunny, clean, just as pictured. Spacious, quiet and all the convinces of home. Great restaurants and coffee steps (website hidden) was awesome, she responded promptly to any question that arose. We would stay again!

I'm a professional girl, world traveller. As of 2 years ago made SF my home and love every minute of my life here. A friend recommended this site, and I decided to try it out. So far it's been working out great. :)
