Great location in San Francisco

This is a great, small apartment for either two couples sharing or a small family. As others have noted, the location couldn't be better as it sits almost on top of Nob Hill with cable car stops right outside the door. The pair of transit passes that come with the apartment & San Francisco's outstanding public transportation system made getting anywhere we wanted to go fast & simple. This proved a triple advantage because not only did we not need a car; we also didn't have to worry about the exorbitant cost of San Francisco parking. The good thing is that being on the 4th. floor, the noise from the cable cars isn't particularly intrusive, even though the bedrooms overlook the street. Of course, if you're out of shape or have mobility issues, the bad thing is that same 4th. floor location as there's no elevator. The furnishings are simple, but comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped, although a few more dishes might be a good idea. We found that it was usually necessary to hand-wash cups or dishes as we'd run out of one or the other long before the dishwasher was full. The beds are excellent: really comfortable mattresses & good linens.
And finally, a special mention for Mike, our host & his family who made themselves available to take in one of our bags after the airline misplaced it, thereby making it possible for us to have an evening out & then, on our last day, storing our luggage for us until our evening departure.
