Who lived here?

Samuel Dashiell Hammett (May 27, 1894—January 10, 1961) was an American author of hardboiled detective novels and short stories. Among the enduring characters he created are Sam Spade (The Maltese Falcon), Nick and Nora Charles (The Thin Man), and the Continental Op (Red Harvest and The Dain Curse). In addition to the significant influence his novels and stories had on film, Hammett 'is now widely regarded as one of the finest mystery writers of all time' and was called, in his obituary in the New York Times, 'the dean of the... 'hard-boiled' school of detective fiction'. Samuel Dashiell Hammett lived in this apartment while he was finishing writing The Maltese Falcon.

Walking distance to everywhere. The Cable Car is one block away. Best base to explore the city. Nob Hill is one of the best areas in San Francisco.

This studio is also fully furnished and equipped with kitchen and bathroom.

Writer Dashiell Hammett used to live in this building and wrote the 'Maltese Falcon' in there.

The rooftop deck offers amazing views of the city and the bay.

LIVE LIKE A LOCAL

  • 5 of 5
Work took me to San Francisco to work and instead of a hotel room, I decided to pretend to live like a local and rent this apartment. It was very convenient to get to the office in the Financial District, either by trolley or the #1 bus through Chinatown. It was the perfect launching point for exploring the city during the off hours. Having markets, grocery stores and plenty of great restaurants in walking distance also added to the appeal.

The place itself is small but cozy. It's great for one person or two people who like each other very much. At night the traffic noise dies down, and along with the fabulously comfortable bed you'll get a great night's sleep. This will be the place to stay the next time I'm in town!

ABSOLUTE GEM

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this Nob Hill studio for 6 nights. It was very clean and the location is ideal. It is close to cable car lines and buses so there is no need for a car. There are several grocery stores nearby and one just up the street. Union Square is a pleasant twenty minute walk down the hill. The neighbourhood is quiet and people are friendly. There are great views from the rooftop deck. We highly recommend this apartment.

PERFECT LOCATION AND APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
The reservation service was really efficient and easy and any questions I had were deal with immediately by email. The apartment is just great - it's a studio (with a literary provenance!) which is perfectly laid out with all the amenities you can wish for. We loved its location on Leavenworth - close to some lovely deli markets, coffee shops and the excellent public transportation system. But also an easy walk into downtown. I'd have no hesitation in staying in this apartment again.

GREAT LOCATION, CLEAN, AND VERY FAIR RATES

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was small, but very clean and comfortable. It is on the ground floor, so expect some noise from the street, but its not any different than anywhere else you might stay, in any city. The kitchen is very well kept, with all the utensils you may need. The rooftop patio is AWESOME, and there is a great deli/grocery store less than a block away. Laundry facilities in the basement are great too. Check in was very easy, and dealing with Bernat and Andreas was very pleasant. Less than a block away from the trolley stop and a couple blocks away from Chinatown. Learn to use the trolley on California street, for getting up and down the hill and you will be good to go. Some of the nearby awesome places to grab a bite to eat would be Umami Burger on Union St. and also check out the tiki bar/polynesian restaurant in the Fairmount Hotel, called The Tonga Room, best cocktails ever, and the food is amazing. Both places are in walking distance.

JUST PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
The place is incredible!
The apartment is located in Nob Hill, a few blocks away from all the attractions in San Francisco... if you don't mind walking up and down hills. We found is quite a workout!
The bed is incredible comfortable, is like sleeping on a cloud. The apartment is complete, with everything you need to enjoy your stay. Only one block away there is a grocery store with everything you need, from canned soup to ready to eat plates, and wine too!
The staff was really helpful and responsive to all our questions.
We highly recommend this place. For sure we will come back for our future stays at San Francisco!!!

GREAT LOCATION - BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
This was a great experience. We loved the old style charm of the apartment...high ceilings, tile bath floor, wooden floor in other spaces. Communication and attention to detail by the renting organization was wonderful. We enjoyed the high quality appliances, and view from the roof-top deck. The bed was exceptionally comfortable - just like home. Nice hot shower in clawfoot tub. Convenient location to cable car and bus routes. This apartment will not disappoint. We love the Nob Hill area!

Neighborhood: NOB HILL. It is one of San Francisco's most desirable destinations, renowned for its city landmarks and the famous hotels that border Huntington Park.

You are just steps away from the many cafes, pubs, Italian restaurants, theatres, bookstores and shops of the Italian Quarter. It is the perfect gateway in San Francisco, yet close to all the entertainment. Washington Square Park, Chinatown, Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, the Financial District are all within walking distance. The location is easily accessible by car, bus or cable car.
