About this listing
Update: whole apartment available October 8-26
Two blocks northwest of Union Square, this SF studio is surrounded by popular restaurants and bars. It's also close to public transportation--trolleys, buses, Muni and Bart. Double-size futon accommodates 1-2 comfortably. Full size kitchen and fridge
The apartment has hardwood floors, full kitchen with a gas stove, a clawfoot bathtub, and plenty of light--but what makes it special is the location. The building is in downtown San Francisco between Union Square and Nob Hill, within walking distance of Chinatown, North Beach (Little Italy), Pac Heights, SoMa, and the Financial District. The famous Bohemian Club is across the street and SF hot spots like Ryoko's and Sugar Cafe are right next door. You can have a great weekend shopping at Union Square and sipping drinks at Top of the Mark or take an easy walk around Grace Cathedral or up to Fort Mason.

I'm also open to renting out the entire apartment. Send me a message if you prefer not to share.
Guests have access to everything in the apartment. I recently upgraded the wifi internet connection so it is extra fast. I have basic cable, HBO, and Roku with Netflix and Amazon Instant all on a 32" HDTV for when you want to relax. There is also a laundry room with coin-op washers and dryers
Interaction with Guests
I typically work late during the week so you'll mostly have the place to yourself Monday to Friday. On the weekends, I'm happy to make recommendations on restaurants and social events. I've traveled through South America and Asia so I enjoy meeting fellow travelers, especially. You're welcome to join me in whatever I'm up to--concerts, chilling in Dolores Park, whatever. I don't spend much time in my apartment on the weekends so you're also welcome to have the space to yourself.
Downtown is where it happens in San Francisco. I can point you to all the coolest bars and restaurants in the city, whether you're on a budget or treating yourself
Trolleys, buses, light rail, and the subway are all within a few blocks. Getting around couldn't be easier
This apartment was perfect for me and my band member. The location was just a block from the venue. Alex was accommodating, flexible about check in and rolled with some unexpected aspects of our visit.
Great location! Alex had great suggestions for places to eat. Sadly I just wish I had more time. Thanks
Alex was warm and accommodating, a great host. Great location, walking distance to great restaurants, coffee, etc. Definitely recommend.
I had a wonderful time in San Francisco. The location is great and the space works well for a few days.
Good location ! Well preparation.
Alex is so nice and helpful for the questions and need I had
Alex was an awesome host - very accommodating, super welcoming and very cool and chill to talk to. I didn't stay in the apartment much because I was exploring the city most of the day with a list of things to see and eat but he was always ready recommend me something to do/eat/drink or to answer any questions I had. The place is around some good eateries (awesome Indian food and Vietnamese sandwiches - ask Alex, he'll know what's good) with transportation a couple of walks away. Definitely recommend.
Alex was an awesome host! He was polite and fun and helpful with everything from where to get the best chocolate to how I could get a rental car at the last minute for a reasonable price. His place was clean and well located. This was my first Airbnb expereince and I cannot think of a way that this experience could have been any better. I will definitely book again the next time I come to town!
