    I stayed for 5 days at this unique and special art haven conveniently located in the heart of Berkeley two blocks from 4th Street and only 20 minutes from downtown San Francisco. The owners are both renowned artists and very accommodating in every way and very respectful of your privacy; couldn’t find nicer people! One feels inspired by the wonderful art and pottery, everywhere you look, created by the owners Sandy and Robert. It feels as if you are on an art gallery vacation. Very private, quite and peaceful. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to have a tranquil getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Your very own private entrance. I can’t wait to return there as soon as possible.

    This is an Artbnb and available only on the website. I have recommended it to friends,
    who can’t find it because they are looking on airbnb where it isn’t listed. This is exclusive to people who
    know people who enjoy art and beauty in their surroundings.

    TRAX gallery Artbnb is really spacious and clean. We loved being able to walk to shopping and restaurants just 1/2 block away. Buses are just around the corner as well as the Southern Pacific railway to cities North and South. The trains do blow their whistles at the crossings which takes some getting used too, but well worth it considering the advantages of the location. I enjoyed Soul Cycle for exercise as well as the Zen Spa for massage and acupuncture both within a block.

    This very modern and crispy clean and very private apt was a great place to stay in Berkeley It’s surrounded by well known artist studio and one of the finest ceramic gallery’s in U.S. Hosts are super informative about the area. Accommodations are great, very comfortable bed and 4th street shopping is next block with terrific shops and restraunts

  5. Marilyn Lindstrom

    Excellent stay!! It doesn’t get much better than staying with quality art, having your own private, clean apartment, friendly knowledgeable hosts, and being able to walk to restaurants and all that 4th Street offers. The details define the stay: King size comfortable bed, a large living room, great kitchen, clean shower. What a treat! And, what a bargain-(for the price of a cheap motel!) If you appreciate an artful, modern ambiance, then this is your spot.

    My husband and I have stayed at Trax Gallery Artbnb twice now. We will be sure to return as soon as our schedules allow! There is so much to praise: the aesthetic decor, the comfortable bed and linens, the coffee and bagels, the inspired art . . . truly a home away from home. And what fun to wander out of the apartment and onto the hippest, trendiest street in all of Berkeley, resplendent with shops, galleries, bars, great restaurants. Sandy and Bob are fabulous hosts. We feel very blessed to have found this exceptional stopping place in the heart of Berkeley.

    This is my second stay at Trax Art B&B! Being surrounded by art, sculptures and casual & modern furnishings is truly heaven. Everything you need and it is right next to 4th Street upscale shopping and eateries. We came in on Amtrak which is just 2 blocks away.

    We stayed at TRAX Art B&B in the beginning of October, 2019 for 4 nights and the experience was great! The apartment is spacious and very comfortable – felt just like home! Also the location is unbeatable! We didn’t use the full kitchen because there are plenty of excellent restaurants and coffee shops around! Being a pianist myself, it is a treat to be surrounded by all the wonderful paintings, potteries and whimsical sculptures! Staying at TRAX made us feel truly on a vacation! We will go back again!!1
