02/26/13 by NewtoSanFran77: That last review is not representative of my experience here thus far; the manager Jeff is terrific and really cares about the comfort of his tenants and he makes sure the place is kept extremely clean. There is no smell, and that is something I am very sensitive to. The units are spacious and very bright, with everything recently renovated. My only complaint is something management has more
02/22/10 by anonymous: The current owners, The Prado Group are greedy, arrogant jerks who will screw anyone for a buck. They would much rather take you to court and harass you with their nasty lawyers than do the most basic maintenance on your unit. Unless you want your life to be hell, don't rent from them! more
05/05/06 by anonymous: The apartment is located at 337 Fulton Street.
The apartment has a small bathroom, small kitchen, a bedroom and a medium sized living room. It has hard wood floors, gas stove, dishwasher, plenty of cabinets in the kitchen, and two big closets. There is a laundry room downstairs with two washers ($1.50 per load) and two dryers ($1.00 per load).
We are located more
08/21/05 by anonymous: Just in case someone new reads the previous post, Bayview-Hunter's Point is NOT a wonderful neighborhood. It is SF's WORST and it's a shame that SF just keeps on doing NOTHING about it. I guess they (meaning the SF gov't) thinks no one will look here who is new because it is in such an out of the way area of the city. But the plight of this neighborhood continues and lots of more
11/09/03 by anonymous: I have lived in variouse parts of the city and in several buildings over the years and have found the Ben Hur apartments to be the best. First of all, the landlord takes a lot of pride in his building. For a large building you see him around several times a week checking in on things. The manager is great too, very helpful and fixes things immediatly. He seems to know everyone´s name. The more
03/02/12 by anonymous: Good place if you're a low-maintenance type of tenant and a male. Unit (at least the one I rented) is in good condition, but no matter how hard you keep it clean, a roach here and there always appears. The building always smells funny too every time you enter it. I believe the reason for the funny smells and roaches is due to the building's structure and everything that usually more
07/12/07 by anonymous: Living in the Cosmopolitan Apartments was perhaps the smartest financial move I've ever made. I moved there in early 1999 and left in late 2004. At the time, my rent was $650. My rent increased just once - to $669. My apartment was bright, cheery and cozy. Although the neighborhood was quite noisy and a bit dirty, I walked everywhere - to shop, work, musuems, etc. I more
06/18/01 by anonymous: It´s a beautiful old building near the Union Square center of town that looks great from the outside, but not so good once you start moving in. The elevators are too small for almost all standard sized furniture and are frequently out of order. The resident manager is a nice elderly gentleman who sleeps in the lobby when he is able to move. The wiring and plumbing are dangerous to life and more
10/02/03 by anonymous: I have to say that my overall experience with this building has been good. While it is not exactly one of the nicest buildings in the city in the nicest area of the city it is also not the most expensive either. The manager and the company that runs the building have been good about keeping the building secure and maintenance issues are always dealt with. I would recommend it to people with low more
05/04/08 by firstname.lastname@example.org: I've lived here for a year now and let me tell you that coming from a bran new place in seattle to an old building in sf is total culture shock. I pay 1050 for a decent sized studio on the 4th floor... but what you pay for is living in the city. I can walk everywhere (shopping downtown, supermarket 2 blocks, laundry across the street etc...). The resident manager is a nice older lady more
