Beautiful Edwardian flat in the heart of Alamo Square in San Francisco. Enjoy the Edwardian style of this house plan with its inviting facade one block off the heart of Alamo Square.

Amrita was an amazing host, she made me feel comfortable and could answer all my questions about the neighbourhood, where to eat, etc. She's also just a lovely person to have a conversation with in general. The location was fantastic as well. Right by Alamo Square and The Painted Ladies, in a safe area you can feel comfortable walking around in. Walking distance to Haight and Diversidero, both cool neighbourhoods to walk around in. #5 bus is right out front so super easy access to Market Street and tourist areas. You can hear the busses go by but it is faint. It really is a wonderful old school Edwardian flat too with great detail and character. Way better than a cheap hotel. I had the same towels the whole time, but only a few days. I'm sure if I requested them to be washed it would be done. Great shampoo and soap choices, very good quality. Loved it!
Amrita did a great job making me feel welcome. I was extremely comfortable and felt right at home for my entire stay. I appreciate her flexibility, and how quickly she accepted my short notice reservation. She even helped me plan my sight seeing route and made sure I hit all the great spots!
Definitely planning on staying again my next time to SF.
I am so glad that our paths crossed. It was truly my pleasure to host you and I hope that I get that opportunity again. I did get your contact information and will email you in the coming week to follow through with introductions. Again, thank you for your kind review. Best, Amrita
Amrita was extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating. Her place is in a wonderful neighbourhood, and the room is spacious and comfortable. I had a fantastic experience staying with her, and would happily do so again!
I am so sorry I never got around to leaving you a review. Your blue laundry bag has found a great home. My current guest stayed for two weeks thereby allowing me to leave town and he loves the bag. Thank you for gifting it to him via me. You were a sweet and kind guest. I hope you enjoyed San Francisco and touring it.
My very best, Amrita
I can fully recommend this place (great location, fantastic host and place with a lot of character). I enjoyed my time from the warm welcome to the last minute at Amritas place. At my arrival all was prepared and ready. Even though I am almost 7 feet tall the bed was spacious and very comfortable. Amrita, thank you for all that positive energy I could take back home :)
Amrita is a stellar hostess. Her place is even better in person -- just stunning. It's what you hope your home away from home should feel like. It's near public transport though I recommend walking around SF. Alamo Park is gorgeous and just two blocks from her place. Amrita made me feel welcomed, let me be myself, and made me feel comfortable. I highly recommend her and her home!
Clean, spacious flat. Was able to find street parking close to residence. Far away from the waterfront but close to the Mission. Host was readily available and informative.
I wish you had mentioned you were looking for a place on the waterfront - I most certainly would have redirected you a more suitable neighbourhood. I hope you enjoyed the organic apples you had requested. I just didn't see a thank you note or acknowledgement. Just want to make sure you got them. Best, Amrita
