Charming studio in Nob Hill. Walking distance to everywhere

Charming studio in Nob Hill. Walking distance to everywhere

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Apr 24, 2015
Studio apartment in Nob Hill sleeps up to 3 guests. Spectacular city/bay views

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.

Wonderful San Francisco Experience

  • 5 of 5
Normally when visiting San Francisco I stay in a wonderful small hotel near Union Square, but it was full for my January visit and I found this wonderful studio. Now I can't imagine staying anywhere but this studio on future trips. I loved being on Nob Hill and being part of a neighborhood. I loved the Bay Window and sunlight. The complex was quite, the studio was clean and finished as advertised. For 12 years, I've rented VRBO apartments in many U.S. and international cities and have collected favorite ones in each city. This studio will be where I stay in San Francisco.

I'm not going to spend much time except to say the management is so lacking it was discusting. Room was dirty and had to wait for the housekeeper. 5:00 we were able to unpack. Stove not working and we stayed there so we could cook. Stove fixed the next day! No one ever called to see if things were ok! Extremely disappointed!!!!!!! The only thing good about this place was the rooftop where we spent some good time there!!!! There are a lot of other places to stay, but not here!

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.

Awesome Experience!

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.

Fun!

  • 5 of 5
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

The service and emails with the agent were brilliant, every email was answered
