The apartment is great, as described in the listing. The neighborhood is very quiet, I had a great time here.
Amrita is very friendly and an excellent host, I totally recommend this place !
Amrita was extremely pleasant and her place was perfect. The room and bath are right next to the entrance and on the other side of the apartment from Amrita. The bed was very comfortable and the entire place was very clean and tidy.Amrita was exceptionally fast in her replies and efficient in her planning. I will definitely stay here again next time that I am in San Francisco.
Staying at Amrita's apartment was the best choice of our trip to SF!
Her apartment is beautiful and in a great neighborhood, with several restaurants a block away, and 10-15 minutes away by foot from Hayes Valley, a really cool neighborhood for dining and shopping. There's also a bus stop right outside. The apartment itself is just like the photos, very spacious, with much attention to detail. And you feel like you're getting a lot of space and privacy even if you're only renting a room.
Amrita is an unusually kind and warm hostess. She's very easygoing and lets you do your own thing, but she's also happy to chat and has great tips for dining and exploring the city. Every single one of her recommendations was spot-on. And we even ended up having a home-cooked meal together!
Super Host! Amrita was a wonderful host and her home was lovely. I felt very comfortable and enjoyed the experience very much. The location is awesome and I would definitely recommend staying with her.
My stay with Amrita was a wonderful experience and a truly great Airbnb experience. Amrita is the consummate host and she went out of her way to make me feel welcomed during my stay in San Francisco. Her house is lovely and the neighborhood has great character. Thank you so much Amrita!
That was a brilliant weekend in SF. Amrita was a wonderful host and I slept like a baby in the bed with plenty duvets & pillows.
The neighborhood is so nice with all kind of small shops, boutiques and restaurants. Bike rental nearby and perfect running in Golden Gate Park to the ocean. Safe and secure area to stay day and night for a lady travelling alone.
The cherry on the cake was the concert Amrita took me to on my last evening. I very much enjoyed that!
We loved our stay at Amrita's charming Edwardian flat that is located in a great area in San Francisco. Everything we needed was within a short walking distance and almost all the bus lines stopped in front of her house.
Amrita herself is adorable and friendly - a wonderful hostess who gave us a warm welcome when we arrived. She made us feel right at home. Our room had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable. Amrita is very knowledge about her city and happy to provide her guests with any information they might need.
It was our first experience with Airbnb so my husband and I were a little nervous but that quickly disappeared.
The flat looks just like the picture though it does not show the new kitchen and the sunny front room where you can relax and enjoy coffee, wine, music, etc.
Amrita has a lot of pride in her home and it shows. Her decorating is a wonderful reflection of her personality.
So sorry I never got around to writing a review in a timely manner. I know it is a poor excuse but life took over and then some. I loved hosting you and your husband and hope to visit Cape Cod someday soon. I shall be in touch. Thank you for being such an amazing couple to host! Best, Amrita
In my free time I love to travel, especially in Europe, and have visited many cool places. I also like going to Yoga, hanging out with friends, and enjoy good food and wine.
