    Adorable studio in Little Italy
    It's an adorable little studio with a decent size kitchenette. The neighborhood is fantastic. It's a couple mins of walking to center of Little Italy. If you are thinking twice, don't. Just book it!

    Charming Bungalow
    Great spot just off the main grid of Little Italy. It was a 4 minute walk from Union Street to India Street. It was fun to live like a local in the neighborhood and meet the fun & funky folks from young to old. Accommodations were perfect for 2 people and the full kitchen was an excellent bonus. Just some words of caution: no central heat & air! It gets super hot in the bungalow (#1527) from 1 pm - 4 pm so I compensated by either throwing all the windows and front door open with 2 fans going at full strength or just not being there at that time period. There is a parking lot next door and a fire station close by so I’d occasionally hear sirens and cars/people coming and going. Points of interest were totally walkable from the waterfront, Little Italy, and Balboa Park. It was also a very short ride by Uber or hopping on the Green Line to reach the Gaslamp District, Convention Center, Seaport Village, etc.

    Fair 4.0
    The room was fine. The location lacks parking,there is no address number on exterior so finding it at night was almost impossible until calling. We were kicked out twice due to their clumsy and malfunctioning combination lock time for an hour at night. They need to change that system completely. Parking was difficult to find. The room was clean and updated but the other things really created a lot of stress.
