Great location can't be better the apartment is centrally located at the intersection of Little Italy and China Town. The apartment was clean and tidy with all the facilities. The terrasse is awesome for the breakfast. You are only on few minutes walk to the public transit, grocery and restaurants (don't miss the House but it's better to make reservation.)
We had problems with the cable and it was fixed rapidly. The street noise is always there in the background. Don't be surprise to see peoples hang on the sidewalk on night but we were never been bothered by them.
Travel tips use the Hop On Hop Off Big Bus tour, take the 48 hours trip and don't miss the 7:00Pm Tour to see SF on night.
