traveler reviews for this san francisco apartment rental

San Francisco Medical Conference

Review submitted: October 19, 2013   Date of arrival: October 11, 2013

Karina's SOMA Loft Studio was great. I was in town for a medical conference at Moscone Center. The studio was a couple blocks walk to convention center. Very clean, lots of room. Karina was a great host....made my stay very comfortable. If visiting San Francisco again I'd stay here without question.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Lane could not have been a more wonderful guest! He was a delight and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to meet him. He is the kind of guest that hosts dream about. It was like having a family friend over. He is extremely conscientious and so thoughtful. He could not have been more pleasant or wonderful to communicate with. A true delight. Thank you! Come back!! :)

Cozy accommodation

Review submitted: May 23, 2014   Date of arrival: May 16, 2014

Karina was very hospitable during our stay. She allowed our dog to come with us which very convenient and everything is within walking distance. Definitely recommend this place to others.

Note: if you drive and have a car make sure to park your car in a paid spot. My girlfriend's brother had his truck broken into and had all his things inside stolen. This had nothing todo with the accommodation so I didn't take anything away from the unit.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Gerald was a wonderful guest and very easy to communicate with. In San Francisco always remember to remove everything from you car before parking it anywhere. Whether it is in a paid parking garage or not. Below is the information I email to guests now in case it is helpful for anyone traveling to San Francisco. (I email guests the link to the list below. Vrbo does not allow links so I just removed them from this post). I am going to add the tip about not leaving anything in your car. I won't even leave a pen out in my car in San Francisco when parking in a parking lot or not. Better safe than sorry.
I have guests from all over the world so it's helpful for them to have all of this information at their fingertips. It can be tricky to locate even when you speak the language :) I had one guest waiting for a cab that didn't showed up and they tried another one from the list after texting me for any ideas and made their flight just in time! They had the information but didn't think to reference it at the time. I recommend super shuttle for flights but it does require some planning and an earlier departure time than with a taxi. The benefit is that it is usually less expensive than a cab depending on how many people you have. It's good to know your options.
Thanks for being a great guest and best to you both!
MUNI - Bus, Metro light rail, cable car
BART - Subway system The nearest BART station is at Market and Powell Street - (essentially Market at 5th Street.) The BART system does not travel west of Market and 11th Street.
YELLOW CAB - 415-333-3333
UBER CAB - 866-576-1039
SUPER SHUTTLE - 800-258-3826 (group shuttle to AIRPORTS)

We had a lovely stay in Karina's place - it was very much as advertised - central, convenient, homey and cozy. Checking in and out was a breeze and we very much enjoyed the thoughtful gift basket. Thanks again for letting us share your home! We can't wait to be back in the city!
