Central location, good amenities, odd layout

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was located in a great, central location in Chinatown. It's located in a small alley that makes it difficult for Uber/Lyft to pick you up, but it's a 10 minute drive to most business districts. The apartment is an ok size, although the layout is very odd. There's a half bathroom with a toilet in the hall, and the shower is literally through the kitchen (no toilet in that room).

The apartment was well stacked with soaps, shampoos, towels, and even a nice bottle of wine.

Hidden Gem

  • 4 of 5

I and 3 colleagues stayed here while attending a medical conference at the Moscone Center. It was a bit of a walk, but easily managed. Proximity to great restaurants in Chinatown, ferry building, fisherman's wharf, and market street. Located right off of Powell and the historic cable car line. The apartment is clean and comfortable, though for 4 people, the small shower room and single toilet off the hall made for interesting morning logistics. The digital lock was invaluable, as we could each come and go without trading keys. I would highly recommend this unit for small groups who are able and don't mind walking and want to save some money compared to much spendier hotels in the market, civic center, and financial districts. I prefer the personal touches of an apartment over a hotel 8/10 times when I have to travel for work longer than 1-2 nights.

Rented apartment in the heart of San Fran's Chinatown

  • 5 of 5

Located in the heart of Chinatown, this apartment is roomy enough, private, and clean with all the amenities of home. There is a furnished kitchen for cooking. The cupboard is stocked. There is wi-fi internet and even a complimentary bottle of wine! The living room has a nice leather couch and tv. This apartment is just a few steps from Stockton street in Chinatown. You are steps away from the Good Mong Kok, one of the cheapest and tastiest places for take-out steamed buns and dim sum. You have quick access to the sights in Chinatown and all the restaurants as well. Union Square is within walking distance, and if you are good health, you can walk to Fisherman's Wharf in 20 minutes. The digital lock on the door is great too, as we never had to take a key with us when we left in the morning.

The apartment is great overall, except maybe the upstairs residents are pretty active. Must be kids living upstairs, as they stomp pretty early and stop stomping by 10:30pm. Rest assured that you will get a good night's sleep and a free wake up call at around 8am from the kids being kids above you. There is no view, as all you see is brick. However, as someone who was vacationing in San Fran, and wanted to be close to Chinatown, this was not a big deal as we were out for most of the day. If you look out the kitchen window, you see two bird eggs. Nice.

We highly recommend this location and would love to stay in this location again when we visit San Fran. There's not much more that you can ask for, so book this apartment for your next vacation in San Francisco. Two thumbs up!
