Helpful Information:

- 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:

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The location is perfect, near everything. The apartment is clean and acomodate very well two people. The washer/dryer machine worked very well. The negative points are: there is an uncovered window, so we woke up with the sun. There is no coffee machine and a toaster.

  • Отличное месторасположение и сама квартира! В квартире есть реально всё,что нужно. Нам нужен был поздний чекаут,нам разрешили. В пешей доступности почти всё. Но и это не проблема. Из всех квартир в США,эта была самая-самая. Ах,да,там нереально высокая кровать:) кто вертится ночью,не повезет:)

  • This apartment is in a great location, and was perfect for our needs. It was clean, tidy and well presented and the bed was really comfortable. It's not a room with a view as such but this didn't bother us, we just wanted somewhere cosy and quiet to relax after a long day sightseeing and that's what we got. It was also a bonus to have use of the washer/dryer.
    Anne was really helpful and always quick to respond, and as there were no guests booked in for our departure day we were able to leave our bags there for the afternoon which meant we had another 4 hours to explore before we had to head off to the airport.
    There are 2 cable car stops close by which are helpful for getting up and down the hill, although they are a little confusing at first (if you're used to the UK transport system) but we seemed to muddle through! Generally it is fairly easy to get around, helps if you plan your route first though! There are shops and places to eat all really close by and china town is just down the road.
    We had a great time and would definitely stay here again if we are lucky enough to visit San Francisco again!!

  • This apartment is well kept/decorated, modern and clean. The building itself is nice too. I didn't have any issues with my visit and was only pleasantly surprised at the consideration from Anne and Walid with their printed manual in a binder. Beware of the steep walk if you're pulling a suitcase from BART. Otherwise, great place and I'd repeat for sure.

  • This was our first visit to San Francisco and we didn't really know what to expect. We'd done some research about where to stay and chose Anne and Walid's as it seemed to be in a great location.

    When we arrived we discovered that it was not just a great location but the best location in San Francisco.

    On all of the tours we went on, as we passed our street the tour guide would call it the 'posh' area of San Francisco which gave us quite a buzz.

    The apartment is in walking distance of some very nice cafes, restaurants and the famous cable car.

    The apartment itself is beautiful and the bed is extremely comfortable and we slept like logs. It was so much nicer than staying in a hotel.

    Anne and Walid were great hosts and very easy to communicate with. They provided an extremely helpful information about everything from public transport to great places to eat and important things to see and do. They made our stay in San Francisco a far more memorable one than we would have created ourselves.

    My Wife and I can't wait to come back.

    I thoroughly recommend staying at Anne and Walid's apartment.

  • A small yet lovely, very convenient studio -- we had a great time staying here. (And Anne was wildly helpful when we accidentally locked ourselves out!)

  • 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!
