Great location, charming place. Two rooms with ensuite baths. Decent size, very comfortable. Two upstairs rooms with shared bath. One with nice terrace. Bathroom upstairs is functional, but shower is comically small. Lovely common areas. Lawrence looked after us while we were there and was absolutely terrific. Responsive, eager to please, warm and welcoming. I would definitely stay again!

All the great reviews on this house are well deserved. It's a splendid old San Franciscian home, with four bedrooms on two whole floors above the main floor, 2 bedrooms with their own bath, two sharing a bath, and another half bath on the main floor. And Valentino and Lawrence were super helpful. We'd stay here again anytime.
