This the place I live in. It is in a very nice historical building. The apartment is charming and has a zero noise level. It's been recently renovated.
Near the UC Berkeley campus (steps from Haas). It's close to a lively "Telegraph Republic" area with myriads of restaurants and cafes.
Ideal for solo travelers and couples (we have very lovely place to stay in, e.g. you have a view on palm trees from your bed)
This place is not suitable for parties and kids
