The Space

Location, location, location. This cozy and comfortable studio is located in the heart of San Francisco where the popular neighborhoods of North Beach, Russian Hill, Nob Hill and Chinatown all meet each other. Newly remodeled, this nicely tiled studio has a queen size bed and an additional full size loft futon for extra guests. The apartment has internet and Netflix movie television. Small refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, pots and pans, kettle, dishes, glasses and cups, silverware and kitchen supplies. Sheets, bedding and towels. This studio is an affordable alternative.

The apartment is on the cellar level of a building built in 1907 (earthquake retrofitted). The building has been described as Kafka-esqe, with its winding center stairwell that leads to a large common roof deck with beautiful views of North Beach, Coit Tower and the financial district. The large deck is shared by only 3 apartments, is never crowded and is a wonderful place to enjoy the view with a glass of wine.

Steps from North (email hidden)ly Italian neighborhood with world renowned dining, cafe's, Washington Square park, bookstores, Coit Tower, Saint Peter and Paul's Cathedral and plenty of nightlife. Also within walking distance to Chinatown, with numerous dim sum houses and other eateries, as well as a short walk to the top of Nob Hill, renown for its city landmarks and famous hotels that border Huntington Park. There are numerous public transportation options within walking distance, cable cars, buses, and taxi's. We also are not far from Fisherman's Wharf, the financial district and Union Square. Our neighborhood is very safe.

There are two coin-op laundramats within 1/2 block at Pacific and Taylor and at Pacific and Mason. There is a full service laundry at Pacific and Salmon.

There is no parking at the building. There is overnight parking available at 735 Vallejo (at Powell), 733 Kearny (at Clay), 766 Vallejo (at Powell) and at 1320 Washington (at Jones)

For groceries walk to the many small produce and fish markets in Chinatown and North Beach, the Real Food Company at Polk and Broadway, or La Beau Nob Hill Market at Leavenworth and Clay.

  • Great location. Easy access to downtown, Chinatown and Fischermans warf. Small yes, but the place's got everything you need and more!

  • A unique stay in SF. Great location, nice rooftop deck, and a comfy bed to sleep (all you need to rest your head).

  • Un lugar sencillo pero bien situado para poder llegar a cualquier sitio de interés. No tiene luz natural pero está en una zona tranquila y sin problemas. Si quieres acudir a San Francisco sin lujos y de un modo económico es una buena opción.

  • This place was great. The location was easy to find and right in the heart of San Francisco without being too caught up in the hubbub of the city. The apartment was cozy, comfortable, and clean. We only stayed one night so unfortunately didn't get a chance to go up on the rooftop deck, but will definitely consider the "Cellar" next time we travel to SF! Thanks so much!

  • This roof of the building where the apartment is had the most amazing view. The apartment itself is very small. But it's location is in the heart of the city. The neighborhood also seemed very safe --which was very important to us. Just be prepared to walk uphill! We're from Miami where the whole county is flat as a pancake, and we had to do a lot of walking uphill and downhill to get in and out of the apartment neighborhood.

  • We had a great stay - the apartment is clean and comfortable, within walking distance to plenty of places (as long as you can manage the hills). No natural light but the patio upstairs has an amazing view and we were out a lot anyway. Carlos left detailed instructions as well as some great recommendations for restaurants and bars.

  • Good location and clean apartement with two dobles beds.
    We spend 3 nights in this apartement. It has all you need for visiting the city if you aren't looking for luxury but for a clean an confortable pleace.
    It is place near to Chinatown and quite far from Market St but, no homeless near there.
    Beteeen two hills, it's a little bit complicate to go for a walk.

    Buena ubicación y limpio.
    Con 2 camas fe matrimonio, tiene todo lo que necesitas para visitar San Francisco si no vas buscando alojamiento de lujo pero sí un lugar limpio y cómodo.
    Está prácticamente en China Town y algo lejos de Market St pero con la ventaja de que no hay indigentes en las inmediaciones.
    Está situado entre dos colinas, lo que dificulta en cierta manera pasear desde allí.

  • Alles in allem ausreichend und ok für 3 Personen.
    Schöne Dachterasse mit tollem Ausblick.

  • Great place, great host. First time doing this and it was very simple. Wasn't in the cellar long enough for many details but it was perfect for what we needed on our trip. Thanks Carlos.
