Overview

Russian Hill Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Coziest One Bedroom Apartment On Russian Hill

If you look at a map of the San Francisco peninsula, we are in the center of it. Walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach, Chinatown, Union Square, the Marina, the Financial District, and more. This is a small refuge in the heart of the city, steps away from the Cable Car and the Crooked Street.

While the apartment is small it has everything you will need to enjoy a comfortable stay. A fully equipped kitchen, cozy seating area with small dining space and comfortably sized bath. You will be happy to have such a cozy place to return to after a day of adventures in the city.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Sabrina Litton

We're happy to share our little 'piece of the rock' in San Francisco with you. We're two married professionals from New York and Hawaii who met here and fell in love with SF.

Why Sabrina Litton chose Russian Hill

Russian Hill is just about as central as you can get in San Francisco. Our house is close to public transportation, and walking distance to much of the town.

COZY AND PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife & I stayed for a week and loved the apartment. Great location with North Beach & Fisherman's Wharf just a few blocks down the hill. Quick tip, take the Cable Car or bus up the hill on the way back unless you are a stairmaster veteran. The neighborhood is excellent, safe, central with bus & cable car one block away. A bus pass may be helpful.

The apt. itself is clean & well kept, amply supplied & the bed is comfortable. Sabrina is very nice & accomodating to make your stay pleasant. The only downside is that the apt. is small & if you are tall or wide it might be a tight fit, my wife & I are small & for us it was fine.

For breakfast La Boulange on Polk is good or the SF Art Institute has an excellent $5 special & a great view, both places have croussants & the like that are excellent.

Overall it's a great place to explore the city from & we really enjoyed our stay!

Great location for walking SF

  • 4 of 5
My girlfriend and I stayed in this property while I was attending a conference. We mostly enjoyed the stay, and thought a balanced review would help people decide whether this was the right property for them.

First, the negatives, and they're really minor:
- The dining area is tiny, so expect to eat most meals out. The table is really only suitable for one.
- The bathroom is VERY small. If you're short, it's fine, but average-or-taller folks will not enjoy that experience.
- Steep hills are unavoidable when walking to or from the apartment. According to Wikipedia, this is the single steepest block in all of San Francisco! (This is also a positive. See below.)

Now, the positives:
- You're on the steepest block in all of San Francisco! This really adds to the charm and uniqueness of the property.
- Good access to transit (#45 bus downtown, or Powell-Hyde cable car)
- Quiet location. You won't hear any traffic or bar crowds here.
- The price is very reasonable for the prime location.
- The kitchen, while small, is well-equipped.
- The apartment is clean and well-maintained.

If you choose this property, I have some tips as well:
- The Powell-Hyde cable car was unreliable, at best. The #45 bus and good sneakers will be your friends.
- Walk West to Polk Street, then South a block or two, for groceries and some great cafés. We had breakfast and coffee at La Boulange nearly every day!
- Make sure the cable car museum is on your to-do list. It's free, and directly on the cable car route. We did a lot in SF, and this was one of the highlights.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! The apartment is indeed small, however, our guests are finding it the perfect home-base to explore this fabulous city. Unfortunately the living area only allows for a small table for two and we're sorry it wasn't big enough for you- we will keep our eyes open for a table that might suit the space better. In terms of the shower, I don't know what to say. It is not a 5 star hotel experience, but definitely more than adequate! Please remember that we are just average joe's trying to offer a comfortable place for travellers to enjoy this city we call home. We hope folks who read this review don't hesitate to inquire about our property. We promise you an unforgettable stay in a cozy apartment on one of the steepest paved hills in the world!

Great for the price! Fantastic location, private, and felt like home.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one week while exploring the city. The owners were very flexible with check in/check out procedures with us because we had late flights coming and going. They tried their best to stock the apartment with most of the necessities and even left a bottle of wine in the fridge for our enjoyment! Expect a small shower and bathroom as well as a few occasional noises from people walking above the apartment. However, the view from the front door was the best and it is only 2 blocks away from the famous curves of Lombard street. The space felt much like home, which made it great to come back to after a long day out in the city. We preferred this much more than a city hotel

Amazing apartment to visit SF

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this apartment was awesome. We were two persons (my boyfriend and I) and the place was large enough for both of us. We highly recommand this place for every people who want to have a great and short stay in the city. We stayed at this apartment for 1 week. We really loved it. There is many buses (#41-#45) near to this location and there is also the cable car just next to it. The apartment is close to many attractions so that makes our trip easier. In the apartment, you will find everything you need : shower, oven, fridge, wifi, etc. Also, Sabrina gives us all the information we needed very quickly. This is not the first time we rent some apartment.. we did it in many country (France, Italy, Netherlands, etc.) and this is the best experience we have yet! Also, even if we were travellers from an other country (Canada), that was not a problem to rent the apartment.

Thank you Sabrina for everything !
