I had a few new colleagues in town stay here. They were not too impressed and the wifi was did not work the entire time.
Very minimal experience. If you are looking for a place with a great location, this will certainly work. However be prepared for late night bar fights and a very loud street after 10pm. Malee was very accommodating and the place was clean. Walking distance to the piers, great food and public transportation.
This was a great location. We could walk to just about everything that we wanted to see. The San Francisco mass transit is fantastic and can get you anywhere pretty quick. We didn't have a car and got around just fine.
The apartment was small and cozy, but we weren't there for the apartment, that was there for sleep. If you are looking for a four star or better hotel then this is not for you. But if you are looking for a great location that is close to everything than this is the place
Very nice apartment! Good location between Chinatown and Financial District.
Our family of four had a lovely 5 day stay in Malee's place. The location is amazing and the apartment, though Spartan, is clean and comfortable. I can't imagine a more ideal and accessible location. We used public transportation the entire time and all bus stops, etc. were easily accessible. The neighborhood is lovely and surprisingly local in feel. The amenities are few so you might want to consider bringing along a couple of your favorite towels and be prepared to purchase a couple of rolls of tp and paper towels if you are staying 3 or more days. Kitchen is not equipped for any major cooking, however, we were able to prepare our own full breakfasts daily and a couple of simple evening meals. Take advantage of the wonderful Italian grocers in the area and whip up your own fresh pasta!
The place is so nice and it has a great location. Malee was so nice and helpful. Will definitely stay here again.
This spot is close to North Beach, which was perfect for myself and travelling companion. The place was clean and adequately furnished. The kitchen was very impressive -- I wish I had been staying longer because for a small apartment this has one of the nicest kitchens I've seen.
Malee was flexible on key pickup -- we got in fairly late (around midnight).
The only thing I would recommend is bringing one's own towel -- the towels furnished were small and a little threadbare -- other than this, a good experience.
The only positive features of this place are the location, and possibly the price. Beds and linen were average at best. Curtains were all ripped and practically see through. The road noise was pretty bad. If you're struggling to find the place, its the horrendous pink colour amongst some really nice houses.
All of this probably would have been over-looked if the check in and check out process wasn't so heinous. No instructions were given for checkin, yet the host was distraught that we hadn't called 1 hour before and had already left before we arrived. She was subsequently rude and uninviting. Checkout was a non-negotiable 10/10:30am, but came knocking at 10am, annoyed that we hadn't left yet.
I do not recommend staying here unless it is the last place available or you're on an extreme budget.
Appartement très bien placé et assez spacieux pour 4 personnes, mais aménagement minimal et d'assez mauvaise qualité:
Lits vétustes, matelas douteux et manque de couvertures
Linge de toilette réduit au plus strict minimum
1/2 rouleau de papier toilette pour 4 personnes et trois nuits....
Accueil lui aussi minimal sans aucun échange avec l'hôte
Only stay here if it is your last option. Don't get me wrong the location is great, but host isn't very accommodating. First, when we arrived to the apartment there was half eaten leftovers in the fridge. Not a huge deal, but since you are paying a cleaning fee it would be nice to know the cleaners actually came. Malee told me the cleaners probably got confused and thought the previous guests are coming back, and wanted the food. Ok fine, but the next thing pretty much proved Malee theory wrong. I went into the bathroom and all the towels in the shower were soaked. For this reason I believe the cleaners never came in the first place. Or if they did, they should find a new line of work. Also, I had a little trouble finding the key to the apartment, so I decided to call Malee. Instead of helping me locate the key box, she yelled at me, and called me an idiot. Some quality customer service. One last thing, Malee told me I could checkout at 10:30 (although her listing says 11!). Fine. I had to meet and friend and decided to head out anyways. Malee showed up at 9:45 to get me out of the apartment. She claimed if was for the cleaners, but if you read my story above, who knows if the cleaners ever come.
