This is a three-bedroom two-bathroom unit in a historical house of lower Nob Hill. Other than the one bedroom and one bathroom for my personal use, the rest of the apartment is available to guests. The main guest room is facing a quiet backyard and furnished with a full size bed. The third bedroom can be converted to a guest room with an air mattress or used as a gym/studio when not occupied. The sofa in the living room can be expanded to a double bed to accommodate 2 additional people.
The apartment is conveniently located 3 blocks from Union Square, 2 blocks from Cable Car line and steps to a variety of neighborhood cafes and restaurants. There are numerous bus lines running on the streets within a few blocks radius. BART Powell station is a 10-15 min walk away, which provides easy transportation to and from SFO.
Because of the central location and convenient public transporation access, cars are usually not needed. For people who would like to keep a car while in the city, street parking is free from early evening to early morning Mon-Sat and Sun mornings. Otherwise it's either metered or zoned, which allows 1-2 hours of parking. There are two parking garages on the next block which charge around $20 per day. A couple more garages nearby charge $10 for the day time so one can take advantage of the free night time parking.
Please note if more than 1 guest room is used, there is a $50 cleaning fee due upon arrival.
Beddings and towels are provided.
IMPORTANT: The apt is pest-free. For everyone's benefit I will not accommodate people who are not from a bedbug-free environment. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Xiaoyang had to be away during my stay, but she sent me keys well in advance. That made the process quite seamless from my perspective. The place was tidy and looks just like the pictures. We had plenty of communication ahead of time about arrival plans, etc, so it was a really easy, comfortable stay.
The immediate neighborhood has a lot of options for restaurants and is really easy to get around. I was able to walk to City Rent a Car to get a car the one day I needed it. It was also a breeze to get from her apartment to where I needed to be for work and to reach transit. I went on daily runs in different directions and felt the apartment was very well placed for seeing a variety of places.
If you stay here and arrive via BART like I did, I'd recommend using the Powell St station rather than Civic Center stop since approaching from Powell felt safer at night. In either case, it's uphill, but it's quick.
Xiaoyang was a warm and welcoming host. Beautiful home, just as depicted in the listed photos. Rooms were clean and amenities were provided. Great location, highly recommended!
