Built in 1908 as a politicians mansion, then bought by a madam that converted it into a brothel, this beautiful piece of history is now an apartment building in the heart of downtown San Francisco. It is conveniently located within walking distance to EVERYTHING; BART, MUNI, Cable Cars, Union Square, China Town, Little Italy and various bars and restaurants.
Admired for being the only building in its area with a courtyard, this four story building is shaded by its four story palm tree and two plum trees that guard the entrance. All of which the room offers a great view of!
The available room (17' x 13') includes walk in closet (5' x 4') and a built in shelf/ office fixture (2' x 7'). Comes furnished with impeccably clean bed, bedding, wooden box shelf unit (shown in picture), Metal wire drawers, and sitting area. Shared bathroom with one other person, me or another Airbnb guest! Large dinning area, spacious kitchen for cooking and FREE WIFI.
Washer and dryer located in the basement of the building: $2.00 for wash and $1.50 for dry (the machines only take quarters).
I work 40+ hours a week and spend most of my free time outside of the apartment. Although, when I am home I make sure that there are plenty of clean towels and always offer to wash the sheets for guests staying longer than 5 days... If you're lucky I'll leave a mint on your pillow! ;)
Check in and check out are flexible but, Please give me an approximate check in and check out time upon requesting the room so that I may arrange for someone to let you in if I cannot myself. Also, pictures are needed for recognition, thanks! :)
This is the best way to go when visiting San Francisco. I hope there will be an opening in the future at Christina's place for future visits. It is better than a hotel, plenty of walk around room and full kitchen. We had a great time, thanks Christina!
She was very nice and always available. I never saw her in person but she would come occasionally to clean and check up and would keep in touch by phone.
I agree with most of the comments already posted. This is a great location on Nob Hill, and a good price compared to pricey hotels in the area. There is a lot of noise from street and radiator, so I suggest ear plugs at night. Kitchen is good, but basic. No microwave or toaster. Trader Joes and good café are nearby. This is a good value, and Christina is responsive to any needs.
I did not have a chance to meet Christina, but from our Airbnb conversation she seem very nice and willing to help if I had any problems.
The apartment was very comfortable and clean in very good location. Definitely recommended!
Christina's apartment is idealy situated near Union Square and close to public transportations, there's anything you want to prepare your meals in the kitchen and a fridge.
The bed is very comfortable too.
I would definitely stay here on my next visit to SF.
The apartment/room was very clean and centrally located with everything needed just a couple of blocks away. Christina was an excellent host who made checking in and out a breeze. Although we never met, she was very welcoming and always a short and friendly text away. I will be keeping Christina's place at the top of my wish list when visiting SF again.
The location of the apartment really is unbeatable, and the room spacious as promised. Walkers get a free daily workout climbing uphill; otherwise public transportation is just around the corner. Light sleepers could be bothered by the street noise – a price I guess you have to pay when staying downtown.
I only briefly met Christina, but she was easily reachable via text and always responded promptly.
Christina's place was large and sunny and wonderful. It was a really great location for everything I needed to do and Christina was great.
Very great host. Always in communication, easy to coordinate, very accommodating, and a good location! The room is spacious, however, Pines is a very busy Street, and so the traffic at night is a little noisy. Would recommend to anyone!
Room is really spacious and in a great neighbourhood, and Christina is quick to respond to any concerns.
