Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The Royal Exchange Insurance Building is an historic San Francisco Landmark. This unique building was the first commercial building completed downtown after the 1906 earthquake. In 2006, it was converted to condominiums. The brick and stone facade remain unchanged. Much of the marble was imported from Milan, Italy. Marble and polished brass throughout the common staircases and the beautufl entryway.. There is a gorgeous common roof terrace with mature flowering and edible plants, seating and lounging areas. This tenth floor unit is in the rear of the building, and has excellent sunlight. The original warehouse style bay windows are an historic part of this unit.

A dream setting. San Francisco living at it's BEST. Walk Score 100 of 100.

This unit is approximately 600 square feet and is a perfect retreat from a long day at work in the Financial District. The home is crisp and clean, and offers luxury living for longer stays in San Francisco.

Sophisticated and Stylish Corporate Condominium. Privately owned and managed

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent our summer vacation enjoying this lovely condo. The unit’s amenities were excellent, both comfortable and up-to-date. The historical building is well maintained, and the management team was friendly and accommodating. The condo’s location is also outstanding—close to public transportation, restaurants, and shops. For convenience shopping, CVS, Walgreen’s and a 7-11 are only steps away. We definitely plan to return for another stay!

base for exploring

  • 5 of 5

We rented the apartment for two months as we were relocating to SF, and ended up extending for a third month. The apartment is clean and well maintained with everything we needed, and was exactly as portrayed on the website. The location is outstanding - two blocks from public transport, and easy walk to major attractions, and a very good supermarket within easy walking distance, as well convenience stores steps away. The only drawback to the location was the potential for noise - we had night time roadworks across the road for the entire duration of our stay. Direct TV was available with an enormous channel selection (though a larger TV might be appreciated by some), plus good internet access. We really enjoyed our stay, and the owners were very responsive to a minor issue we had at the start of our stay.

Business monthly renter

  • 5 of 5

I had an excellent stay at this apartment for the month. I was looking for a unit close to my office that was clean and had the basic amenities and this exceeded expectations. The apartment is kept clean and well maintained with new linens, the kitchen is adequately stocked with supplies, and the bed was comfortable. The pictures of the property and the description on the web are accurate. As described, note that the TV just has a few channels (which don't include the basics like CBS, NBC, etc.) but there is Netflicks and Hula to choose from - you just won't get the local news, or latest TV shows. Overall, well priced for the location and quality! I am planning on staying here again.

Ideal for Students that need privacy and security

  • 5 of 5

I attended HULT for my Master's and stayed 7 months at this beautiful condo before I took an option and moved to London to complete my degree. It is the perfect place to study! Convenient to the school and shopping. I walked to school but on rainy days took the bus that was within a few steps of the door, Groceries were easy and shopping was simple and convenient. Clothes shopping was abundant and the BART Train was a block away. I was able to do laundry at anytime without worry and enjoyed the building security, always feeling safe. The landlord is unforgettable! I'm grateful for the adventure. For a young single woman it was perfect. My father loved the place because it was close, safe and classy.
