Apartments near downtown are usually either a. too expensive; b. in the Tenderloin; or c. way, way too expensive. This listing, located at Stockton and California, is surprisingly none of the above. It's within walking distance of Union Square and the Financial District, and a steep enough hill away from Chinatown to discourage throngs of tourists from meandering nearby.

And did we mention the incredible brick walls throughout? They're beautiful, and a rarity at this price point; same goes for the refinished hardwood floors. These original details are the perfect counterpoint to the recently remodeled kitchen, with new cabinets that mimic the tones found in the brick. You also get on-site laundry and water included in the rent. Really, a great place for the price. Nob Hill 1 Bedroom
