Thanks for checking out our listing. Here are some details.
The apartment is centrally located in Nob Hill., a short walk (less than 1mile) from:
* China Town
* Grace Cathedral
* Union Square

* Lafayette Park (free outdoor tennis)
* Lombard St.
A slightly further walk (1-2 miles) to the following locations:
* North Beach

The best thing about the neighborhood is it is safe to walk around at night, unlike some neighborhoods so close to downtown and many bus lines and cable car lines within 1 min.

* Couch (comfortable to sleep a third guest)
* A "pack and play" cot for infants and babies
* Flat panel TV
* Iron and Ironing Board
* Blow Dryer
* Extra sets of bed sheets and towels

* Kitchen Supplies
* Shower with Tub
* Laundry on site in basement with washer and dryer

As a bonus, we are including two passes for unlimited rides on the Muni around the city. Muni is the public bus system in the city of San Francisco. This doesn't include BART, but it does include the cable cars. Which is particularly great since you are right by two cable car lines - the Hyde car takes you to Ghirardelli Square and the California car takes you downtown with iconic views of the city.
If you tell us a little bit about yourself and what you are looking to do while in San Francisco, we would love to provide personalized guidance on what to do on your visit and how to get around. SF has so much to offer and there are quite unique experiences if you know the local scene.

Sina and Cata were great hosts – very friendly, well-organised and communicative. The apartment is quiet, clean, spacious and has everything you need for your stay (iron, basic cooking supplies, hair dryer, etc). I loved the bed, which was huge and super comfy. The included Muni passes were excellent as well. While the apartment is in a central location close to many restaurants and bars, it was nice to be able to take the cable cars and buses to skip walking up some of the steeper hills. Overall, a great experience in an amazing city! I would definitely stay here again.
Asolutely loved this apartment in San Francisco. Great location to many shops, bars, restaurants and transport. Would definitely stay here again in the future if i travel back to S/F. Apartment was very clean and spacious, and had everything you would need in the kitchen. The 2 MUNI passes came in very handy as we used public transport every day.
Thanks very much.
I stayed at Sina and Cata's place while I was in San Francisco for a conference. It is a very comfortable apartment, and the bed is comfy with nice pillows. They had everything I needed, including an iron and ironing board. There is a Trader Joe's just one block away so I was able to get things I needed for my stay.
Great space in a great location. Very convenient if you are at conference at Masonic Center. The Muni Pass was also useful to get me up the hill on the trolleys. Hip coffee shop around the corner that opens at 6:30am on weekdays.
In short, this is a centrally-located, clean, well-appointed though dated one-bedroom apartment with really nice, attentive, helpful hosts. Recommended for single or couple without a car for whom the cons below are no problem.
PROs: Hosts are a very nice young couple who are considerate, helpful, and responsive, and have provided pretty much whatever an air bnb-er might need. We notified them of a faucet problem and our handy hostess appeared that day to install a new faucet in the kitchen. We all had a bit of fun with the plumbing repairs.
As I’ve said in earlier reviews, the best thing about Air BnB are the people, and this was no exception!
Should visiting bnb-ers be younger than we are and able to deal with the issues mentioned that were problems for us, and have no car to park, it’s a great location we highly recommend, especially for singles, a couple or even a single/couple with a baby or toddler. If you plan to use public transportation or taxi/uber, etc., this is a great location. Apartment is on first floor up an easy 3 stairs. The hosts nicely provide Muni passes, along with maps and info on local restaurants and things to do/see.
Location is central, very near to many restaurants, clubs, and other neat SFO things, including a Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, cable cars outside the door, etc.
Shower has attached hand shower. There are plenty of shelves in the bathroom for two people to put their stuff. Plenty of towels, bedding, etc.
Apartment is very clean and well cared for, even though dated—Freshly painted and decorated nicely, kitchen well outfitted well and simple staples provided (sugar, salt & pepper, vinegar & oil, etc.)
Pack & play type baby bed & booster available.

CONs: Location, while conveniently located, is on a hill with nearest parking a couple of blocks downhill on Sacramento. (Only a problem if you are like me, older and a bit physically challenged). We were going back and forth to/from Marin and touring areas in South Bay, East Bay, and other places, so we needed the car—it was a drag here. Caveat: We are a couple in our 70s, with various knee and back issues, so YMMV.
Property is very dated. Old toilet is very low and there is nothing to grab onto nearby, so if you have knee problems you might dread using it. We put a kitchen chair in front.
Shower tub has old-style sliding doors that are balky.
Washer & dryer is downstairs in the basement. We didn’t need it, but it is available, albeit in the basement.
Heat doesn’t work too well—not a problem unless it’s pretty cold.
Probably not for the ancient traveler ;-).
For the young and hearty--it's just fine.
I was guest at this place for about 10 days recently. Here's some feedback:
Cat helped me with the check in. She is very flexible with the time.
The apartment itself is in a great location with easy access to the 1 Muni and other lines. It's right off a main street with restaurants and shops and groceries which made it very convenient. The location is superb.
The apartment itself was spacious and clean. While it pretty much had the basic necessities you need, it didn't feel very homely. They provided everything you need, but it didn't feel like a home. If you are someone who watches ESPN regularly or likes cable TV, the cable service there does not have good channels. The wi-fi worked well.
I have some issues with the TV and heat and Sina showed up right away to help me so that was excellent service!
I had a great experience overall and would recommend this place.
Sina and Cata were amazing hosts! The process was seamless. Everything was agreed upon and sorted out before I even arrived. I would recommend their place to anybody looking for a place in a conveniently located area in the city.
My grandmother, aunt, and mother stayed in Sina & Cata's apartment on a recent trip to SF. Not only was the apartment two block from my own apartment but it was clean, tidy and the perfect place for them to relax after a day of sight-seeing. Sina & Cata were exceptional hosts, they checked in during my family's stay to make sure we had everything we needed. Overall, they were exceptional hosts, my family is already planning their next trip and will most likely plan to stay here again!
Excellent apartment, with everyone it in we needed to enjoy our stay for a couple of nights. Apt is in cool part of town, close to all the sights of interest. Also loved the bar across the road on the corner of Hyde and California I think it was. Highly recommend!
I use Airbnb quite frequently (and happily), and this has been my best stay. Beginning with the ease of pre-travel communications and great information from Sina and Cata, to the hosts being very accommodating with our travel plans, to the location and the apartment itself, it was a five-star experience. The location is perfect for tourists, close to everything, the neighborhood is lovely and very well-served by public transportation, with an added bonus of all cable car lines right there, and a Zipcar location just behind the house. The apartment is very spacious, clean, well-equipped, comfortable beds, there is even a crib for those who travel with babies. It is also very quiet, being in the back of the building, and easily accessible. The Clipper cards were a treasure - SF is the best public transportation city and free travel was much appreciated. There were a lot of little welcoming touches in the apartment which made us feel like guests, not tourists. We are very grateful for the experience and will be recommending Sina and Cata to all SF visitors.
