Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we scour San Francisco's rental listings to see what your monthly budget will get you across the city. This week, we're investigating apartments listed for $2,200/month. The age-old question of space or location endures. You tell us which lease you'd sign.
↑ In Russian Hill, this bright studio is asking $2,250/month. It's got pretty hardwood, a giant window, big closets, a renovated bathroom, and a new-ish kitchen (no stainless). And that's about it, because that's all there's space for. No parking and no pets.
↑ In Chinatown, this one-bedroom is asking $2,100/month. It's got a renovated galley kitchen and hardwood in the living area, and a tiny carpeted bedroom. The windows are small and look like they don't afford much view. An average-sized, mirrored closet and clean, new-ish bathroom, and on-site laundry round out this unit. Cats welcome.
↑ In Nob Hill, this tiny studio is asking $2,150/month. It's located close to Grace Cathedral and Huntington Park. The kitchen is nicely renovated, the bathroom features a claw foot tub, and there's hardwood in the living area, which you probably won't even be able to see once your bed is in the apartment. There's onsite laundry and an elevator servicing the building's three floors.
↑ In the Richmond near Golden Gate Park, this ground-floor one-bedroom is asking $2,100/month. It's got a relatively large (if cavernous) kitchen, but the layout is odd and features several weird pillars that break up the space. There are lots of windows, but the ceilings look low. No information on pets or laundry.
