Apartment Hotel or Private Holiday rental

We are two Aussie family both 2a 2c travelling together to San Fran for five days the first week of April this year. We prefer the space of at least a one bedroom apartment per family - are there many options for this with a central location or are we better off looking for a 3/4 bedroom holiday rental to share?

There are probably more 1-2 bedroom rentals than those with 3-4 bedrooms -- simply because that's what the residential stock in a city is made up of.

Take a look at www.vrbo.com and/or www.airbnb.com and check out what's available.

We always suggest that you come back here with the exact address (or street/cross street) for feedback on the area. "Walking" the neighborhood via Google Street View can give you a perspective as well.

maps.google.com can give you an idea of the city and the main visitor and shopping hub is around Union Square but that is not where you will find most apt that you can rent. Check out the neighborhoods and the MUNI system with buses and streetcars will take you around town so there is really no need to stay in Union Square but you can stay like a local and visit our cafes, restaurants, grocery stores.

www.sfgate.com/neighborhoods will give you a good idea of the neighborhoods.

We found a property on VRBO at 153 Noe St Noe Valley - opinions on this area would be appreciated!

That is a super area! Good transit as it's close to the Metro for a quick underground ride downtown, a large grocery store just a couple of blocks away and lots of small shops and restaurants within walking distance.

There is a large hospital a block away that has an Emergency Room so you might hear some sirens but I wouldn't let this discourage you.

Very nice locations and if the unit looks nice I would grab it with both hands!
