Natalie was great! Never met in person but provided clear concise directions and information on anything and everything to do with stay and all the surrounding area. Her place was cozy and comfy and centrally located. It was perfect for our stay and everything we wanted to do. This was our first airbnb experience and she made it a very easy and satisfying experience.
We arrived late the day, but with the detail instruction Natalie provided, we found the room easily. The second day, I met Natalie. She is very kind and very welcome us to come. During the 3 days, the weather was very good, and from the window we can see very beautiful LA view. The location is also very good.
Natalie is an amazing host, she is funny too :)
She made the entire stay feel really accommodating. I was in town primarily for work and was looking for a nice place downtown. Her apartment location is perfect.
The location is safe with great access to a few shops, Chinatown. If you have time to chill on her balcony you will see the spectacular view of the city.
Thanks a lot for a really confortable stay Natalie.
Will definitely recommend!
Natalie's apartment is in a great location to explore LA, and she puts in a lot of effort to make sure your stay is comfortable. In addition to linens and toiletries, she provided us breakfast fixings and coffee and tea. Despite being in Downtown LA, her apartment is quiet and we slept well on. A huge plus was the convenient and spacious gated parking garage. In LA, you need it. Thanks Natalie!
Natalie's apartment is the perfect location for tourist, everything is so close and handy it makes everything a breeze to see and do with restaurants, supermarkets, shops bus stops and top sightseeing very close by.
I was in town primarily for work and looking for a place that I could leave my car and walk to venues in the center of town and take in some local sights. Natalie's place was just perfect for my needs. Her directions to park and enter the building were quite clear and simple. I did not meet Natalie, but she was very available by text in advance and during my stay when I had questions about the apartment or how to get around. She was full of ideas and knowledgeable about how to navigate the city.
