The Space

Enjoy your stay in the best part of Hollywood in your own Private Bedroom and Bath.

Please check our calendar! The rate is lower a week before the stay or one day visits when guests booked a consecutive day trip in advance and there are one days in between. All Fees are calculated by Air BnB, not us, so all the fees you have to pay, Air Bnb will let you know how much you have to pay when you attempt to book the room.

Back to the room: Our two bedroom apartment has hardwood floors and exposed brick, is only half a block from famous Hollywood Blvd! Enjoy a private room (comfortably fits two) with an attached private bath, closet, and a view of the famous Magic Castle.

About Your Room:
Beautiful room with a queen size bed, a dresser , plenty of closet space and your very own private and attached full bathroom. We will always provide fresh linens, towels and a few toiletries in case you forget something you need. You'll also find some reading material and helpful information about the area to get you started. Your room has a flat screen TV, cable tv, HBO, Netflix, and broadband WiFi with download speeds up to 100mbps.

About the Apartment:
We live in a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment on the highest floor in our apartment building. Hardwood floors and exposed brick bring great charm to the place. Please help yourself to our kitchen and appliances if you'd like to cook or store leftovers, as well as our communal living space where you'll find our DVD/blu-ray collection made up of about 1000 movies including a lot of last years Award Winning films. We're happy to share them with you.

We have two small pups--a Maltese and a Chihuahua. They roam the house, but we do not allow them in your room. They are very friendly and will say hello to you when you come in. They may even try to say hello when you go in and out of your room, but feel free to ignore them if you're not a dog lover--they get more than enough spoilage from the two of us!

About Your Hosts:
A young couple, we adore living in LA. We both work a lot so you may not see us during your stay that much and enjoy art museums, Lakers games, and authentic Mexican food. In fact--we think we know some of the best Mexican joints in town! When we're not exploring Hollywood, we're playing with our two pups, watching documentaries, or spending time with our friends. I suppose we are old souls in a way, but we certainly don't mind if you're not. One of us loves to read and is a makeup artist, and the other plays a lot of basketball and makes films. We've traveled a bit--and we'd love to travel more. We look forward to meeting you! Happy travels.

If you'd like us to help you navigate the city and think of things to do, we are very happy to help! Assisting with directions is something we love to do. If you'd like to be left to your own devices, we can offer you privacy and alone time as well. Just let us know how we can help.

We love the convenience of our neighborhood! L.A. is a car city but if there is one place you can function without a car, it is our neighborhood. It is one of the most walkable locations in the city with a score of 95 "Walker's Paradise" on (website hidden)

Not only can you walk around the corner to things like the grocery store, coffee shop and pharmacy, but you can mosey to the end of the block and find yourself in the thick of things: the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the depot where popular city tours depart, tons of shopping, The Chinese Theater, El Capitan, Magic Castle, Hollywood Bowl, clubs, bars and restaurants. There's just too many things to list within walking distance. There's even a great park nearby (Runyon Canyon) where you will get fantastic panoramic views of the city.

While we live in the busiest, most convenient part of Hollywood, our street is pretty quiet and you'll feel a bit of distance from Hollywood Blvd when you're in our top floor apartment. It's a great balance in our opinion!

If you need parking, we will provide a parking space for you. LA is a car happy city, so if you prefer to use public transportation we're in probably the best location in the city to access it. You'll find the MTA Red Line and the subway within a 5-minute walk, and some popular bus routes within minutes of our apartment. Again, just let us know if you need directions.

Our apartment also has a very convenient route from the LAX airport via Union Station, for those that do not plan on using a car.

We know how it is to travel and we try to make things as comfortable for our guests as possible. We are here to give advice and want you to have the best time possible while staying in our apartment.

We are pretty flexible about checking in and out. We have a cleaning person that comes prior to each guest visit so we hope that the guest understands they can't have full access until 2pm on "back-to-back" reservations. If that is the case, we are flexible so you can drop off your things and enjoy the city or relax in our apartment until the room is ready for you!

We will definitely make efforts to work around your arrival and needs. To help us and your fellow travelers, please let us know when you hope to check-in and when you plan on checking out in your inquiry.

Finally, we strongly prefer a 2 night minimum on bookings due the logistics required to have the room ready up to a decent standard but are open to one night bookings. We know everyone has a different travel schedule and are willing to work with guests!

Please read the House Manual if you decide to book with us. We hope it answers a lot of questions you may have.

Thanks for considering us!

  • Anyone who wants to stay in Hollywood, we would definitely recommend Ivan and Alicia's apartment. Best things about it are location (2 minute walk from the 'Walk of Fame' and Chinese TCL Theatre and other Hollywood Blvd attractions), free car parking which is hard to find in LA, description is just as advertised, comfortable, clean, private bathroom with a bar fridge and soda included, grocer stores around the corner. Included Wifi, cable TV and netflix were awesome too. Ivan and Alicia were wonderful hosts who made us feel very welcome and were helpful when it came to local things to do, shops etc... They're puppies Molly and Beau were so cute and playful also. All in all, I would definitely stay here again when I go back to LA.

  • Alicia and Ivan were great hosts. The room was big enough for the both of us and had a huge flat screen TV which we didn't use. The location is perfectly situated 1/2 a block from Hollywood and all the tourist attraction including the walk of fame, Chinaman theatre and Jimmy Kimmel live! We also had a car and the parking spot was very convenient for us. A CVS is literally 4 minutes away so its useful for toiletries if you forget any! We went 1 day without a car and Ivan was headed in the same direction and offered to drive us. So nice! Definitely would stay here again. Thanks Alicia & Ivan!

  • We had a pleasant stay with Alicia and Ivan.

  • I absolutely loved staying with Alicia and Ivan. The apartment had a really cool vibe to it and it was very neat and tidy. Ivan was kind enough to intercept my taxi on the way back to theirs as he was close to LAX so that was nice to get a personalise kind of tour back to the house. They have the cutest little two dogs that greet you every time you come home. I was traveling by myself and I felt safe at all times. You just have to watch out for the characters down at the boulevard as they can get a bit close and personal, which is something I experienced so if you are female just watch out for that. Otherwise, it is a fun and lively neighbourhood with lots of things to see and do :)

  • Really one of the best locations in Hollywood. A quick 2 minute walk to the Chinese Theatre, LA Fitness, CVS and grocery store, free parking, fast wifi, 2 super cute dogs....what more could you ask for? Room was nicely decorated and cosy, with sufficient hangers and space to put our luggage. Some drinks and snacks provided. Bathroom was clean and well lit with large (website hidden) note that there is no A/C so it might get a little hot in summer- we placed the fan on top of the dustbin and positioned at the foot of the bed; that pretty much solved the problem. Apart from that, Alicia and Ivan were awesome hosts with a brilliant apartment. Would definitely recommend this airbnb.

    June 2014
  • The room was as pictured with attached bath. Connects to shared living space. Super cute and friendly dogs

  • Just like home far away from home! We enjoyed our stay to Ivan and Alicia, their house is so nice and cozy. Puppies are lovely too. Clean and comfortable bedroom, great location. They were perfect host, very helpful and kind.
    We had a great experience!

    June 2014
  • Alicia's place is very nicely located, right next to Hollywood bd!
    The flat is well decorated and their two puppies are adorable !
    We recommend this airbnb.

    June 2014
  • They are very welcoming and kind hosts; the spot is so close to all the sites! The puppies are a sweet welcoming committee right when you open the door. Such a comfy bed!

    June 2014
  • Aunque sólo estuvimos una noche, la estáncia fue magnífica. Nuestra habitación era tipo suite (con el baño dentro). Todo estaba muy limpio y era muy acogedor. Alicia nos ofreció poder guardar parte de nuestra comida en su nevera, así como también facilitarnos una de sus 2 plazas de parking, ya que por la zona es complicado aparcar.
    En general una muy buena experiéncia.

About
A young couple, we adore living in LA. We both work at UCLA (go Bruins!) and enjoy art museums, Lakers games, and authentic Mexican food. In fact--we think we know some of the best Mexican joints in town! When we're not exploring Hollywood, we're playing with our two pups, watching documentaries, or spending time with our friends. I suppose we are old souls in a way, but we certainly don't mind if you're not. One of us loves to read and is an aspiring makeup artist, and the other plays a lot of basketball and makes films. We've traveled a bit--and we'd love to travel more. We look forward to meeting you! Happy travels.
