When traveling to a city frequently beset by tourism and the business world, it is not easy to find cheap accommodation. Demand soars and prices rise like foam. That also happens in one of the fashion destinations this summer. Among them, probably due to the weakness of the dollar, San Francisco.
Through the Frommer's blog we learn that there is an area in the city of San Francisco where prices for accommodation are still affordable and far from the high rates that are imposed in well-known areas such as Union Square or financial districts.
The area is called Cow Hollow. It is a basically residential district south of the Marina district and very close to the San Francisco Bay and El Presidio Park (nice name for a park ...)
The prices per night usually walk between 50 and 60 euros in motel type accommodation in simple rooms but with the necessary comfort to spend a good night.
A series of motels in the style of the fifties are spread around Lombard Street. From here you can walk to Fisherman's Wharf in just 25 minutes or through the bus one can reach any part of the city with ease. The bay and the Golden Gate Bridge are just a 10-minute walk through the Marina district where you will find a variety of restaurants and shops.
In addition, almost all these motels have their own parking reserved for their customers for free. Other hotels in the same city overload the price of the stay with 15 or 20 euros more for the luxury of parking the car.
