I have stayed with Alex several times before which I think is adequate testimony to the value of this location and this room.
This was my second stay with Alex and he is as hospitable and accommodating as before. He even drove me and my (rather heavy) suitcase to the BART station upon my departure.
As for the apartment, it is indeed very conveniently located being near to Caltrain and the restaurants around SOMA, adjacent to the financial district and 10 mins walk to Market Street and the major shopping area.
Although Alex assigned me to a different apartment than the one booked, this turned out to be a good thing because I had a room in Alex's own apartment meaning that I had some pleasant company for a couple of days and Alex is a very pleasant guy and goes out of his way to look after his guests.
The room was very good, having a splendid view and beautifully furnished with top quality furnishing including silk sheets on the bed.
The kitchen is well equipped although I used only one appliance to heat a pizza! The bathroom is exclusive to the guest an is also well equipped with usual amenities and luxury bathrobe and towels. Everywhere was spotlessly clean.
The apartment was surprisingly quiet and I never had any noise from neighbours.
My husband stayed with Alex last week and he has been raving about his stay. He says that Alex was the perfect host, the apartment as a whole was fantastic, the room was great (with an amazing view of the Bay Bridge) and the location was perfect.
You should stay with Alex if you get the chance.
Alex was a very nice host, I felt always at home. He even cooked once for me, he was always there if i need any help.
This apartment is very central, very close to public transport at main street and within walking distance to Piers and Moscone center.
The apartment is very clean and has a very nice view towards bay bridge.
I would recommend to anyone coming to San Francisco.
Alex is a great host. From my very first day, i was totally at ease at his house and had no problems at all. He was ever willing to drive me around and help in all possible ways.
House itself is in a very good neighborhood of San Francisco with a great view. It is totally as it looks in the pictures.
I would definitely recommend staying in this house, to anyone visiting SF. I am surely coming back again in few months, :).
Alex is a nice, friendly and polite guest. He communicated his travel plans well in advance which allows us to plan our schedule to wait for he's checking in. He left the room clean and in a good condition. He is highly recommended as a guest if you are hosting. .
GREAT GUEST !!!
It was a pleasure to host Alex . Everything worked out very well, the apartment was perfectly kept after his stay. He was very COOL, very clean, pleasant and funny.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him as a guest on airbnb.
