Nob Hill condo description

Charming studio located in residential and undeniably charming Nob Hill, San Francisco's most desirable destination. One block from Grace Cathedral and easy walking distance to famous Union Square shopping, the theater district, Chinatown, and Fishermen's Wharf. Hop on a cable car or grab a bus right outside of the property. Would you rather stay local? Walk to Huntington Park or check out the neighborhood's many bars, bistros, and eateries. Or just pick up a bottle of wine at the gourmet market on the corner and enjoy the panoramic view of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge.

This completely remodeled, third-floor unit has fantastic light all day, wonderful views out the bay window, and a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and marble countertops. Furnished with an antique brass bed and writing table, you can almost sense the presence of Dashiell Hammett, the building's most famous resident. And if that's not San-Franciscan enough, the bathroom is tiled and features an authentic claw-foot tub with shower. Still not enough? Ride up in the antique cage-style elevator. And yes, you can hear the clang of actual cable cars through the window.

All towels and bed linens are provided. Use the washer and dryer in the basement, or if you don't want to spend your vacation doing laundry, drop off your clothes at one of the full service laundries on the block.

                            We stayed 6 nights and had a wonderful time. The apartment is comfortable and clean and well appointed. Situated at Nob Hill on the corner of Sacramento and Leavenworth, The buses run down Sacramento and there is a cable car at California Street. There are corner stores across the road and further down the street. Just a short walk away is Trader Joe's market. We would recommend a walk down the hill to Polk Street and the many places to eat. You can walk from here down Leavenworth to Union Square in about 20 minutes. I don't recommend walking back though (catch the bus or cable car). Something worth noting - Cable car All Day Pass is $14.00 and can be used on Cable Car, Bus and Train. Check which trains first. A one way trip on the cable car is $6.00. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, tourists without a car, sightseeing.

                            This was our first visit to San Francisco and we absolutely fell in love with the city. Our apartment was amazing, it was in the perfect location for us and it was so nice to stay in such a clean and well kept place. It exceeded our expectations and we will definitely like to stay again on our next visit.

                            We loved the location of this apartment and everything was just as described. It is on top of Nob Hill and the rooftop deck overlooks the city. We were there over Memorial Day and the Golden Gate Bridge was having its 75th anniversary so we watched the fireworks from the roof, along with the rest of neighborhood on their roofs. It was cool! We bought a city pass...you can look it up on the internet...for $66 that included 4 museums, 7 days of bus riding, and a trip to Alcatraz-you have to get the one with Alcatraz specifically because they have 2 different passes. There is a good market up the hill one block, you can easily walk downtown to shopping and then ride the cable car back up Powell Street. Grace Cathedral is a couple of blocks away, along with a hotel I forget the name of that everyone goes to its restaurant on the top floor to see the city. The landlord will probably know...he was very helpful and got right back to us with any questions we had while we were there. The bus system is very efficient and we could call them and ask for the nearest stop to get us where we wanted to go. If you have someone that can't walk three floors up to the apartment ask for directions from the landlord on how to use the older style elevator.

                            The apartment was lovely, very clean and tidy. Location was great, very close the the cable car and buses. Great little rooftop balcony where you can sit and have a coffee, and see views of the Golden Gate Bridge on a clear day Would definately stay there again The service and emails with the agent were brilliant, every email was answered

                            This could be an adequate place to rent but there were too many issues that the property manager couldn't resolve. We were provided (1) towel and (1) washcloth for our entire stay (4 days). No hand towel or bath mat. When were denied additional towels and bath mat. No blow dryer so don't forget to bring your own. No hot water one day. Too many problems. Would not recommend under the circumstances.

                            Manager response: Dear guest, there is some misleading and false information on this review: 1st. The guest stayed 3 days not 4 days!! 2nd. They were not "denied" of anything. They asked for cloth towels and we just explained them that we only provide one hand towel and one bath towel for each guest. 3rd. There was not hot water during few hours while changing the main water heater of the building. We are sorry about that. 4th. The expression "too many issues that the property manager couldn't resolve" is totally false. 5th. We usually provide a hair dryer but they sometimes disapear. Sorry we didn't bring you a new one. We have now placed a new hair dryer and new bath mat. Sincerely.

                            The key of the appartment are not easy to use as well as the key of the building ; we have had some difficulties to open the doors !! The listing description was accurate regarding the location (the hair dryer was missing during our stay). The listing photos reflect the rental’s appearance and amenities. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner was helpful in answering our questions or concerns. Yes, I recommend this property to a friend or relative. Activities, attractions recommanded : Cable Car (California line), St Mary's Cathedral, Coït tower....

                            Our stay in this apartment was wonderful. The location is perfect. There are many places to see within walking distance and there is easy access to the bus and cable car. The apartment was very clean, quiet, and kitchen includes some basics that help you cook a meal. We used the rooftop deck and grill - The view is awesome. I think staying in a apartment versus a hotel is a great alternative to give you the feeling of what it would be like to live in San Francisco.

                            Like the blurb says, this apartment is ideally located. 100 yards from the California Avenue cable car to the Bay Bridge, 100 yards in the opposite direction to the cable for Fishermans Wharf with another bus route right past the building. Get a week all-in pass for $20 and you won't have to walk anywhere. However, China Town and Union Square are walking distance and the local area itself is charming with an amazing deli-grocer on a nearby corner. One minor gripe is that the street is a little noisy but thats the price you pay for such a central location. The building is an authentic old townhouse with one of those spooky cage lifts which we loved. The apartment itself is difficult to find fault with. Brass bed, high spec seperate kitchen, roll top bath, flat screen TV, and the window seat for a sunny breakfast were all nice touches. There are enough supplies in the apartment that you don't need to buy loads of groceries (salt. pepper, dishwasher powder, etc) which you then have to throw away at the end of your stay half used. An apartment is the way to stay in SF and I wouldn't hesitate to recomend this place. Thanks Bernat!
