  • Great selection of books and best customer service. Warning: If you love books, do not enter this store if you have other things on your "to do" list that day. I am frequently advised, "Uh oh.....step away from that bookstore..." I've been to The Strand and Powell's. I'll always prefer Green Apple. It's a heavenly time warp.
  • If a bookworm died they'd be sent to rest in peace for eternity at Green Apple Books. Things are as they should be here, with limited walking space and as much retail as can still be fire-code-approved filled with bookshelves and books. They sell new and used books, but had a particularly strong offering of books signed by the author. I picked up Artemis signed by Andy Weir as part of my holiday shopping. The staff is knowledge and outgoing. At the Clement St location they have separated out general fiction and comics/music into two different buildings on the same block, giving the one a more classic cozy feel and the other made a geek culture rabbit hole. Both spaces are well worth the visit.
  • Love this place! I come a couple times a month to get books. Nice and helpful people. Good variety on new and used books. Wonderful place to walk around! They also close late (10:30pm) :)
  • Local bookstore with educated staff, and a slew of used books. Very friendly and helpful, was able to find what I was looking for with ease. A lot of options, and a new age sort of feel with the style of books on display and overal selection. Cool little store, i would recommend to any book enthusiast.
  • I have wanted to come here. I enjoyed here for about two hours. Thank you for giving me a good time.

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
