Excellent apartment in an excellent spot
We've just got back from 10 days in this apartment - given it was a 10 day stay, we didn't want to be 'trapped' in a hotel.
The position is excellent - within walking distance of places of great variety, from Union Square, to the local cafes, along with Fishermans Wharf and also some other great places. The immediate area is very nice - quiet, safe, tidy. We covered most of the city, and there were few areas that we could find that rivalled it. Also, if you're planning on having a car, the parking is invaluable - while there is lots of street parking in San Francisco, it is typically full - a few night-time excursions to other parts of the city were abandoned as we were driving round in circles for ages. There was plenty of local transport, right on the doorstep, so you could reserve car use for out of city trips.
The apartment itself is a great size, well decorated, extremely clean and well equipped. The large TV is like home from home, and although i'll never get used to the vast number of adverts on US TV then the Cable TV gave access to many channels, including sports.
Both bedrooms are a good size, the bathroom shower produces a good steady flow of water at a constant temperature, the kitchen has the essential coffee maker, large fridge freezer. All good. There were so many local restaurants that we played it lazy and didn't cook much - but the kitchen had all the essentials!
As others have mentioned - Lou was a great host, he walked us around when we arrived and was as helpful as you could ask for.
