↑ This freshly remodeled one-bedroom apartment is in a high-rise building at 455 Hyde St. in Civic Center and is available for $2,895/month. It promises great views and offers a new, in-unit washer and dryer. Cats and dogs are permitted with building manager approval.
↑ A one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit is available in the Castle Apartments at 825 Geary St. for $2,950/month. There's a pretty, vintage lobby in this Tenderloin building.

one-bedroom apartment on Nob Hill (the address is listed as Leavenworth St.) is located in a building that appears on the National Register of Historic Buildings and asks for $2,900/month. There aren't many photos, but the listing promises a lobby with all the period deets you would expect in a 1916 building (ornate molding, hand carved banister). Inside the unit, the kitchen looks small, but it has new cabinets and countertops. There are bay windows and a large bedroom with a walk-in closet. Cats and dogs are OK and there's a laundry in the building.
↑ This one-bedroom apartment is in Pacific Heights at 1737 Jackson St. The kitchen and hallway feature a tile floor with a strong pattern, elsewhere there's wall-to-wall carpeting (maybe that's why there's no pets allowed here). There's a shared laundry and parking for $300/month.
