Clean Room

Parking situation is good and bad. There are two hour free street parking, meter, and paid parking garages.

I have another listing which is my bedroom I rent out when I am away. It does not happen too often, but when it's rented, there will be my other guest staying in my bedroom. Most of my guests are here for business and are professional. They don't mind this situation, but I know some do so I am giving a heads up before you book.

***If you are interested in staying here, please make sure you have a completed profile including a photo AND provide some details of yourself and your trip with your message. I will not host anyone without this information. If you want to mail something to my address, please consult with me and make sure you put my name on it (not your name) otherwise it does not arrive. THANK YOU!

Guest Access

Bathroom, kitchen for teas and coffee, laundry room, and basement for recycles and compost

Interaction with Guests

I basically leave my guests alone because most of my guests are here for a business. But when my guests would like to talk to me, I'm happy interacting with them.

The Neighborhood

A safe fun location. Good restaurants, bars, grocery stores, and nice hotel etc are around. Easy to find anything you need. Just that it's also not to far from Tendarloin so please avoid that area :)

Getting around

Walking, Bus, Lyft (discount code: elle142) Uber (discount code:xhdae) and Cab

Other Things to Note

Feel free to use shampoo, conditioner, and body soap in the bathroom. Please keep the sink clear and leave your towels in your room.

Also if you could scrape water out of glass door at the shower, that would be very appreciated, but not required.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • It was so great. The room is very pretty. It is even prettier than it is in the picture! Elle is so diligent and clean. I was very impressed that the bathroom was always clean. No smell. Everything was neat and fine. Also, the heater worked well too. (because sometimes it gets a bit chilly at night) Elle was very kind and she always asked me if I need anything. The location is of course perfect. It is literally 2-3 blocks away from the Union Square in which you can take Bart, bus, and cable cars. Nice restaurants around. I am sure this is the best place you can ever find in downtown San Francisco!

  • The room was exactly as described, very comfortable, nice neighborhood and convenient to downtown. Elle was a gracious hostess, and provided everything necessary. Was very efficient at arranging for access. Overall, a very nice stay at a very good price. I would stay there again.

  • Shihoko is a wonderful host and her apartment is an antique style. It was so pretty. After the long flight, I could unwind and enjoy talking in Japanese. Thanks.

  • Elle was great, she tried to stay out of our way as much as possible so much so we didn't even see her until we were 4 days into our trip. The place looks exactly as it does in the picture and the bed is very comfy. Only thing I would say wasn't a huge deal but it is worth noting that the apartment is right on the edge of the nicest part of town and the worst which was very odd. So first day we walked from civic center subway station through the tenderloin to the apartment at dusk and may have seen a few drug deals go down. After that though we just avoided that direction and kept towards the nob hill area which was the exact opposite of the tenderloin. Beautiful clean streets with very expensive stores. That being said it is a great area very close to union square with a lot to do, we just chose the wrong direction to get there our first night.

    Response from El:

    :) Maybe I should make it more obvious not to use Civic Center station. When I first came to SF, I did the same and I thought it was scary. lol Now that I know they don't really bother you but new people wouldn't know. Thanks! I'll update my listing. Have a wonderful day!

  • I had a great stay at Elle's apartment. The room and bathroom were clean, the room is charming and comfortable. The apartment is very centrally located, it was a 15-20 minutes walk to the Moscone center, where I was attending a conference. Although we didn't see each other much, Elle was friendly and always answerend my emails almost instantly.

    June 2014
  • Elle's home is in a great location and is a very safe/secure building. Loads of great little cafés bars and restaurants in the area all within walking distance. The guest room is larger than I had expected and the bed is super comfy! I stayed here after flying for 18 hours with an airport transfer and found it to be the perfect place to rest and get my strength back. Plus tea and filtered water was provided.

    June 2014
  • I did not actually meet Elle during my stay, but she communicated frequently via email to provide information and answered all my questions. The apartment is wonderfully located for a tourist. Close to Union Square. The bed was one of the mist comfortable I have ever sleep in while travelling which is great if, like me, you've spent most of the day walking. The only suggestion I would make is the addition of a comfortable chair in the room. There are two straight back desk-type chairs in the room, so when I wanted to relax and read at night there was no good option other than lying in bed.

  • I stayed Elle’s place during last WWDC14.
    It was my first time with AirBnB and the overall experience was really good.
    The room is very large and clean. Although I had to share the bathroom but felt no inconvenience.
    The location is about 3-4 blocks away from the Union Sq. and
    it usually took 20-30min walk to the Moscone West. (reasonable and good for health)
    Elle was very kind and I had really good experience at her place.

    June 2014
  • This was a great base for my short trip to SF. The apartment was very comfortable and all the information you provided very helpful.

    June 2014
  • Elle was excellent (as was the apartment). The room was gorgeous and we felt right at home. We arrived earlier than expected and she let us come in and shower/get ready for dinner. We didn't see her much (because we were so busy) but everything we needed was provided. The bed was comfy and the room and bathroom were clean. Elle was extremely nice and easy to talk to. The location is amazing- 8 minutes to Union Square and very close to our new favorite bakery (Flour & Co.). You cannot beat the price/location of this place, I promise. Highly recommended!
