The room is spotless, beautifully decorated and overlooks a lovely courtyard. It's in a great location at the heart of the Russian Hill neighborhood; just steps to transit, shops and restaurants. Its only shortcomings are the limited and complicated parking options and the cash only payment requirement for the room. Otherwise, perfect!

A warm, comfortable tidy cottage tucked away in a big city! The perfect place to base yourself when exploring San Francisco. Close to transport, shops and dining. Polk street is easy walking distance to experience excellent food! The bed was amazingly comfortable and provided the best night sleep ever. Highly recommended!

The cottage is hidden away behind a building on a steep residential street in Russian Hill. I really liked the location as the sleep quality was great. The garden at the cottage entrance was stunning upon first view and then refreshing each time we arrived. I felt safe the entire stay. The neighborhood was upscale. The character in the cottage...

This is Annie's Cottage in San Francisco. We've been coming 1-2 times a year for about 15 years. It is our "home" away from home. You won't find anything like it. Nestled in the Russian Hill district, it is quiet and accommodating. You can easily walk to neighborhood shops, restaurants and catch a bus or a cable car. Annie's home... More

We stayed at Annie's Cottage for 6 nights and we could not have picked a better place to stay. The location was brilliant, the cable car runs a 2 minute walk either to Union Square Area or going the other way to Fisherman's Wharf - what could be better. Great neighbourhood - coffee shops, a small supermarket and good restaurants... More

My father and I stayed in Annies cottage two nights last week. Annie was out of town, yet still got back to us in a very timely manner. Her cottage is adorable and priced well compared to other accommodations in San Francisco. The location was fantastic. We would most definitely stay here again. Thank you Annie and Gilly!

When we got to Annie's Cottage it was late, so we didn't have the opportunity to really see it lit up in all it's glory. In the morning we woke up to see an amazing view on the back porch. Annie's garden was just as it looked in pictures and our room was nicely decorated and cozy. We totally got... More

This sweet little studio garden apartment is only half a block from the Hyde Street cable car and a short walk from Ghiradelli Square or Fisherman's Wharf. But it's on another planet, of calm and serenity. It's not luxurious, but it's a great value in a charming location.

For me Annie's cottage is much nicer than staying at a hotel. I liked it a lot more than the Argonaut (a very nice hotel in its own right) which was were I stayed the last time I was in SF.

Staying in Russian Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner. Combined with several great cafes, restaurants, antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any visitor would gladly leave their heart in San Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world, and make the slow creep downhill past charming period homes. Polk Street is the main drag in this neighborhood, where you will find trendy bars, cafes and shops populated with locals, but for one of the most charming rides in the city, grab a cable car heading up and down Hyde Street.
