- Suggestions of nearby restaurants:
Given the location, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. Some of my favorites are:
- Café de la Presse: very nice French restaurant/bistrot 2 blocks away on the corner of Grant and Bush (Make a right when getting out of the building, go down Pine Street and make a right on Grant Street)
- Belden Place is a very European alley that is a couple of blocks away and honestly all the restaurants have great food and atmosphere. A list of the restaurants can be found here:
Quiet apartment at a great location. I'm looking forward staying at Anne & Walid's place next year!
Excellent location and in the space is wonderful. It was very easy for my girlfriend and I to reach the piers, downtown, and the BART train station. Highly recommend!
It really is one of the better locations I've stayed in downtown SF. Be prepared to hike up and down the steep streets. Very close access for BART and the Powell streetcar.
Being in between Chinatown and Union Square, you can find an interesting mix of restaurants and whatnot. A bit dominated by tourist traps, but you can find somewhere fun to eat every night.
Hosts were communicative via email and we were able to check in and out with no problems.
The space is quite small and the kitchen in particular isn't much more than a sink with room for a kettle. So don't plan on doing any serious cooking.
But if you're looking to spend a few days with easy access to the rest of downtown SF, you couldn't find a much better spot.
Fantastic time staying in Anne and Walid's superb apartment. From booking, they were great communicators, going out of there way to ensure I had everything I would need and providing the most complete overview booklet of SF attractions, restaurants and transport system which was a great bonus!
The apartment itself was very clean and spacious for a studio, with the most comfortable bed that made getting up in the morning a struggle! Fast wifi speeds made working late in the apartment a breeze while the Cable TV was great, not to mention the brand new Washer/Dryer that made laundry night so much easier!
Overall, a great experience in a fantastic apartment in the heart of San Francisco with hosts who epitomise everything thats great about airbnb. I couldn't recommend both Anne and Walid and their apartment enough. I will definitely be back!
Location is good though it is a very hilly area. The place is pretty small but clean, nicely decorated, and well-furnished. Seems as though it could be maintained better as there were multiple problems during our stay. The hosts were fairly responsive and seemed willing to help but we addressed most of the issues ourself as best as we could (WiFi router was not working, washing machine was broken, toilet wouldn't stop running after flushing, smoke detector battery was low causing it to beep intermittently, TV audio didn't work until we unplugged and reset everything).
Overall, it was a nice stay at a good price in a good location but I do think the owners could do a bit of a better job maintaining the place.
- It's very well located
- It's clean
- Has everything you need (kitchen, cutlery, toiletries, etc.)
- Unfortunately the washing machine was broken during our stay but luckily there was a laundromat around the corner.
There's also a convenience store nearby and is walking distance to lots of shops and public transport
Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Location, location location. That's what it's all about, and this apartment has it. Next to the craziness of union square hotels, but just outside if union square. Loved that we could get away yet be so close to all the best access. Right next to the cable car lines. We used the Powell lines to go to the must see tourist places and the California line to the cool neighborhoods.
We has no problems at all with the apartment. The bed as ok, the size of the studio was great. Although we never really hanged out at the studio at all. I mean it's San Francisco!!
So we highly recommend this place for a short get away of 3 to 4 days.
What can I say but totally amazing.. Fantastic apartment really close walk to every possible attraction as well as walking distance to public transport. The apartment was quite large and extremely clean with all that a person would need. Couldn't recommend any more highly!!
I had a very pleasant stay at Anne and Walid's place! I did not meet them, but they left a very convenient way for me to get into their place, and it was very easy to check out. They also checked in with me mid-week to make sure everything was going smoothly. Every night, except the first night, the place was shockingly quiet, especially considering the location in a busy city. Their studio is also in a great location, where I always felt safe returning, even by myself, after dark. I had a few minor issues with the internet, but made this known to Anne and Walid, and am sure they will take care of the problem. The bottom fitted sheet of the bed also kept coming undone overnight, but this is easily fixable. Other than these few minor issues, my stay was great!
The location was great, the apartment was clean and cozy and Anne and Walid were very responsive and informative in their communications. Two minor points: 1) The water pressure in the shower is very very low so washing hair is challenging, 2)The house guide says that HBO is available, but their cable subscription does not include access to HBO - probably just need a quick update to the house guide. Not a big deal.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay and a nice place.
