From wiki: (North Beach is a neighborhood in the northeast of San Francisco adjacent to Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf and Russian Hill. The neighborhood is San Francisco's Little Italy, and has historically been home to a large Italian American population. It is still home to many Italian restaurants today, though many other ethnic groups currently live in the neighborhood. It was also the historic center of the beatnik subculture. Today, North Beach is one of San Francisco's main red light and nightlife districts as well as a residential neighborhood populated by a mix of young urban professionals, families and Chinese immigrants connected to the adjacent Chinatown.)
Transportation is very easy, several Muni lines and the famous Cable Car are just steeps away.
A 10 minutes bike ride will take you to Downtown or the Golden Gate Bridge.
This studio would be ideal for couples, small families or people visiting the city for a short period of time.
It's very clean and quiet and will offer you a nice place where to relax and sleep after a long day in the city.
Other Things to Note
NOTE: THIS IS FOR THE ENTIRE APARTMENT, NO ROOM MATES OR EXTRA ROOMS IN THE UNIT. VERY PRIVATE.
There is no private parking in this building, only street parking.
San Francisco has one of highest real state prices in the country (or world) which makes private parkings a luxury that not too many residents enjoy.
If you are bringing a car into the city (not recommended unless you are doing road trips outside) please plan ahead and be aware that traffic, driving directions and parking in the city might be a hustle, specially if you are not familiar with local traffic and parking rules.
You can leave your car parked in private garages around the building, prices range from $8/night to $20/night depending on the day of the week.
You can also park free in the residential streets but please read the times and cleaning days restrictions to avoid citations.
Finding a spot in this area might be hard due to its popularity so plan ahead if your time is limited
~~TAP WATER IN SAN FRANCISCO~~
The city enjoys one of the most pure tap waters in the county. It comes from pristine reservoirs in Yosemite National Park and it has been proven cleaner than many plastic bottled water you find in stores.
We encourage visitors to enjoy water straight from our taps and avoid buying bottled water, this will help keeping the city and state landfills clean.
No shoes preferred
No extra guests / Sleepovers
Quiet time is 12 am.
My time at Leon's place was really good. Great location for anyone visiting San Francisco either for business or pleasure. The traffic outside can be a bit loud during the night. Leon and his sister Alejandra were excellent hosts and easy to contact whenever was needed. I had a great time during my stay.
Leon was a great host and made myself and my husband feel very welcome. His apartment is centrally located amongst many cafes and bars. The traffic outside can be a bit loud during the night so I'd recommend ear plugs. All in all a great stay.
Leon is very nice and accommodating. His apartment is very functional and well furnitured. Moreover it is well spotted in SF little Italy. I would recommend same experience.
That was our first airbnb experience. We arrived here and Leon was looking for us on the street..The Apartment is really nice and absolutly perfect located.
All "have to see" sightseeings are very close like about 7 Blocks to Fishermans Warf.
Leon was very nice and easy to communicate with. I loved the location of the apartment! It was a breath of fresh air from the tall skyscrapers of downtown. There are tons of bars, restaurants, and other neighborhoods within walking distance. Because his place is in such a great location, don't be surprised to hear street noise at night. I would recommend his place and would gladly stay again. Thanks!
Leon is a very considerate and friendly host. The apartment was very clean and well-located--perfect for my needs.
leon was great, easy to communicate with and very accommodating.
it's a great apartment, bigger than it seems from the pictures! in a good location, easy 20 min walk to the waterfront (for alcatraz, biking the ggb, etc.). also a short walk to get on the cable car, and to the coit tower. AND only a couple of blocks from city lights, which was a winner.
there are lots of places to eat nearby, would recommend north beach bakery on union & grant (get a cinnamon danish + coffee and eat/drink in washington sq park). across the street on the corner is the cigar store cafe, which does great sandwiches.
