The building is described as "Wonderfully unique" - just two words that only touch on the elegance and wonder that this building invokes. Designed by the world-renown architect James Francis Dunn in 1890, the building itself is a main focal point of both tourists and residents alike. Only 1 block from Alamo Square Park and the famous "Painted Ladies" housing row, this apartment is in the heart of downtown San Francisco.
It has been said of this building that it is "one of three of the most significant architectural dwellings in San Francisco". "If San Francisco is the Rome of the colorist Movement, Alamo Square is the Vatican. The Square is the heart of the greatest collection of Painted Ladies and one of the most important collections of Victorian buildings in the world. Although it doesn't have a Saint Peter's, it does have an Archbishop Mansion." This building is located a block away from the "Belle" facing Alamo Square park and just up 1/2 a block are the famous "Seven Sisters" seen in every collection of photos depicting San Francisco. 1347-45 McAllister Street was designed by James Francis Dunn, started in early 1898 and completed at the end of 1900.
The building is to be found in coffee table books on San Francisco architecture, magazines, and newspaper articles. The "Belle" survived the great 1906 quake as it is built on bed rock. Look up James Francis Dunn for more photos and other unique buildings he erected in San Francisco during his career.

We loved the location and feel of this place. After a long day of walking/biking the city the steam shower was a great way to relax. Having a little kitchen was a great way to save money on meals.
Bernat gives us specific instruction in everything! the view from Alamo square is to die for. I had a blessed time with SF!
I really liked this listing - lovely neighbourhood with plenty of restaurants etc nearby. The bed was really comfortable! The bathroom is pretty incredible with jacuzzi and steam room :-) Bernat was very helpful and communicative prior to arrival - instructions were clear on checking in and out.
The place was cute and clean. It was amazing having that steam room and shower! Would stay there again for sure.
Très joli studio qui ne reçoit malheureusement pas le moindre rayon de soleil. Famille de 4 pers, nous avons utilisé le canapé convertible : le matelas était horrible, complètement défoncé; il m'a tué le dos en une nuit
The listing is right behind Alamo square, easy access to everywhere. 5 mins walk to Safeway and other restaurant. The listing is spacious equipped with amazing sauna room.
I haven't met Bernat but definitely he is super responsive and helpful to help me out.
Overall, a great experience. Room was very clean, instructions were very clear. Steam room is awesome, remember to keep the fan on though and open the door so everything dries. Would definitely come back if the price was slightly cheaper.

My favorite places in the world are San Francisco, Menorca, Barcelona and a place I haven't been yet.
