Cozy: Usually a positive word suggesting snugness, comfort, or warmth. It's generally considered a compliment when describing a home, but not however, if stated in a Craigslist advertisement. There, "cozy" is code for "painfully small", plain and simple.

No doubt this studio in Nob Hill is tiny, but for $1395, that's to be expected. What's surprising is that it's got a recently renovated kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances and granite countertop, as well as a supremely sharp bathroom. (Marble mini subway tiles? Yes, please!)

What you'll lack in space you'll make up for with stellar style and a good location, and really, isn't that what city living is all about? Cozy Studio! Great Location!
