I'm a bay area native. I love to travel, explore the great outdoors and spend time with my family and friends.
Really nice apartment, in a central place in SF.
A walk thru Chinatown will take you straight to Union Square and Market Street, Nob Hill just around the corner with a number of great restaurant.
The apartment has three nice bedrooms and would be suitable for up til three couples.
All in all a very good stay - and very helpful and quick responding host.
I stayed at this apartment last holidays with my family (6 in total) and it was excellent! The location is great, the apartment is very comfortable, clean and well furnished and the owners are really thoughtful! I would highly recommend this place to anyone going to San Francisco!
I flew up to San Francisco from Honolulu to be a best man in a wedding. I had to coordinate and find a decent place for some of us to stay which was affordable (6 people, 2 couples and 2 single men), convenient, and close to the wedding venue which was at the Terra Gallery.
This place was perfect. There were two rooms for the two couples with queen size beds, and a room with two twin for the single men. They had a full sized kitchen which was perfect for those in between times during the trip, or late a night snacking. There were plates, cups, utensils, etc.
The shower and the toilet was seperate. At first I found this odd since I'm not used to this type of architecture, but it worked out perfect. It was almost like having two bathrooms, which was perfect for getting ready the day of the wedding.
There was a small living room which we gathered in that was perfect for end of the day meetings and talks. There was a comfortable couch, soft area rug and small table for eating. It also had a wireless router, flat screen tv and most importantly iron and ironing board.
To top it off we were welcomed with a small basket full of snacks and wine when we checked in.
As advertised, this is a terrifically located apartment in a super safe neighborhood, a short walk from Chinatown, North Beach, Nob Hill and a half block off the cable car line. Great location, and it was easy to hail taxis in any direction. The apartment has no view, but is clean and pleasantly furnished and comfortable. The host is attentive and only a call or a text message away and she was kind enough to check on my 80 year old mother via phone to make sure she got in to the apartment ok, since she was arriving a few hours ahead of me. It is noisy. The upstairs neighbors walk across hardwood floors when they get home at midnight and 1 am, and you can hear their conversations. It's also on the alley for the Chinese Hospital, so I was awakened each morning at 5:30am by the garbage truck picking up the hospital dumpsters. So I didn't sleep much when I was there, but my mom slept through all of it. So if noise doesn't bother you, this is a very comfortable place to stay with good hosts and a great San Francisco city location.
Great location, close to Embarcadero and the trolleys, and in the middle of Chinatown. It's a great place to expore SF from, and plenty of room for a family or co-workers.
The views aren't great, but it's very cozy.
The location of this apartment cannot be beat. It is within walking distance of all the major attractions in San Francisco.
This place is very convenient to fisherman's wharf and powell st since the cable car stop is only a 15 second walk. However, if you are 6 people to take the cable car, it may not have enough space for you all unless you take cable cars before 10:00 or after 18:00. One block away is a bus stop to AT&T park, caltrain station and fisherman's wharf. Chocolate, cookie and wine are put on the tale in living room when we arrive. So sweet. The rooms are clean and comfortable. San Francisco is cold for us, and the warming fan provided by Tina saves us. The building is old but the rooms are remodeled. Sound insulation is not good enough. Noise is produced by upstairs, not outside. But we are outside from (phone number hidden), so it is not a problem for us. Tina is so accommodating. For example, we leave our baggage after check out time. As a result, it is a nice place to stay in San Francisco.
I stayed at Jenny's place with two of my coworkers for 2 weeks and had an absolutely fantastic experience. We arrived to a welcome basket of wine, tea, etc and the place was very clean and ready for our stay. Jenny was very communicative and emailed me shortly after my arrival to make sure everything was okay. She also emailed me before my departure to give clear checkout instructions. The apartment is in a really central location near lots of transport options. I would definitely stay here again.
We had a wonderful stay at Tina/Jenny's place in San Francisco. The apartment is conveniently located on the edge of China Town/Nob Hill, close to little italy (?), financial district, piers, union squares, Russian Hill. All these neighborhoods are in walking distance. A lot of good restaurants. The apartment is clean and spacious for 6 or more people. Above all, the host, Tina is just really wonderful. She is quick to respond to our questions/requests. She is very accommodating (e.g., allowing us to leave our bags after checking out). She also provides a lot of useful information for the neighborhoods and tips etc. This is my best AirBnB experience so far. If we go back to SF, we would love to stay there again! Thank you, Tina.
First, the good. The flat is in a great and interesting location in Chinatown. Close to many attractions, bus and trolley lines. The BART, however, is a little less than a mile away. The hosts were easy to get a hold of, and were extremely accommodating with our check-in time. The apartment itself was very clean, had some great amenities (coffee, wine, chocolates left for us), and very comfortable beds.
Now, for the not so good. The apartment is lacking in light. All of the windows look out on building walls (most of which are only a few feet away). This makes the apartment fairly dark all the time. Also, the apartment is very noisy. Not only do the upstairs neighbors make a lot of noise, but the apartment itself (with wood floors) is prone to amplifying noises made by people walking/talking within the apartment. Needless to say, if you are a light sleeper, this is not the place for you.
Overall, I was happy with this airbnb experience. We had 6 women staying together, and I think we had plenty of room (and no issue with only one bathroom). However, in the future, I would not stay there if I needed to make sure that I was well-rested. In other words, it's fine for vacation; not so much for work/academic trips.
Jenny and her boyfriend Peter stayed at the house for one night. They were friendly, clean, quiet and respectful. I enjoyed hosting them and will be happy to host them again and would recommend them to any host on Airbnb.
Jenny didn't end up staying with us. We would have liked to meet her...she seemed great!
Super nice, fun, cool, and thoughtful.
