From San Francisco
Nothing much else to say, since all the previous reviews reflect how amazing this apartment is. Clean, comfortable, well equiped and illuminated. Russian Hill is far more calm, secure, clean and pleasant than Union Square. And easy to access from any part of the city. We've been everywhere using public transportation (and the SF City Pass, giving days of free public transportation, helps a lot, since the cable car - that stops almost at the door - costs USD6 a ride). The only hard part is trying to park around. But it was faced only in the checkout day, since you do not need a car at SF at all. Would stay there again (and again, and again...)!
We had a really nice stay here. It is a perfect location for a typical San Francisco vacation, with the cablecars right on the corner and the steep hills. It is a nice resendential neighbourhood. On Polk St down the road you can find a lot of restaurants, bars etc. The kitchen in the apartment is very well-equipped so cooking at home is also an option. JT was very helpful and quick to help us with our queries. We would love to stay in this apartment again. /Per + Linda
Great apartment and a very helpful host. I would gladly stay again. Thanks!
We stayed in JT's flat in February 2013 (4 adults + 1 kid). Having lived in a number of 100 year old apartments in Montreal before, I felt right at home there!
What we liked best was the location. Perched right on top of Russian Hill, there were excellent restaurants within 1-2 blocks. Bus #45 and the cable-car are right there and they take you straight to the waterfront or Union square. If you are not afraid of walking up and down the hill, you can easily walk to every point of interest.
The place was very comfortable, quiet and brightly lit. Also very clean.
This being the middle of winter, we had to use the heating unit and it took us a few days to figure out how to set the temperature properly so we did get cold at times.
Otherwise, I think JT has a place that's hard to beat for the price and location. It is not luxurious by any means so if you want 5 stars, feel free to book another place for $300-350 a night. I would definitely go back and recommend that you stay there too!
Great location at the corner of Union & Polk with lots of places to eat and drink in the immediate neighbourhood. JT was very accomodating and also responded very quickly to fix a small problem we had while staying in the apartment. Highy recommended!
The reservation was canceled 211 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
My wife 2 daughters and I stayed at JT's apartment in January 2013. The apartment is wonderful. The perfect location from which to enjoy and explore San Francisco. It is beautifully laid out and appointed. We are already planning our return trip.
Fantastic location - convenient to cable car, Lombard Street, grocery store and great restaurants (especially liked Frascati and Zarzuela, both within two blocks of the unit, not to mention the Swenson's ice cream place directly across the street). The unit was very clean, and as pictured on the website. Beds were comfortable, and kitchen well-stocked with supplies. Jt was very responsive and easy to communicate with, and check-in/check-out was a breeze. No real "view" to speak of, but can't beat the location. We would definitely stay there again.
There are some great properties to let in San Francisco and I thought long and hard before choosing J.T.'s flat and I can honestly say that we couldn't have made a better choice.
The flat is exactly as described, although you have to be in the property to appreciate how spacious the rooms actually are and the quality of the furnishing
But where the property really comes into its own is the location at the junction of Union and Hyde. This meant we had a great bus service from the Caltrain station right to the door, with the cable car providing an iconic ride downtown. Russian Hill is a great place to be based and we were able to walk via Lombard Street to Fisherman's Wharf in around 10 minutes (or 45 minutes allowing for all the photo's you will take on the way)
J.T. was away for the period we were there (New Year), but access arrangements were all clear and there were no problems whilst we were there
I can't recommend this place enough
Nous avons eu un magnifique séjour dans ce superbe appartement, coquet, propre, bien situé et proche de tout (landry, supermarché, restaurant japonais, café Français...). Nous n’aurions pas pu rêver meilleure situation.

Jt y sus amigos han sido unos huéspedes muy respetuosos y tranquilos. Espero que vuelvan a alojarse con nosotros.
It was easy working with JT who visited Chicago for a few days in May. Communication was simple, check-in was easy. My apartment was clean when he left. I would recommend JT to any other airbnb hosts and would welcome him back to my home anytime.
Jt is a friendly guy, curious about the city and the neighbourhood and uncomplicated to deal with. He took really good care of the apartment and left it spotless at check out. I can highly recommend Jt as a guest.
