Natalie is a hilarious host filled with life and her perfect apartment with perfect views of DTLA makes this place a match made in heaven. There was never an awkward moment and Natalie made us feel like we have known her for years entertaining us with her stories. Unfortunately, I was sick during my trip, but she tried to cure me the best way she knew how...with homemade Hot Toddies which helped ease the pain. Overall, I couldn't have asked for more from this host or the place. Everything is extremely close and she lives in an ideal location that's close to everything, yet doesn't feel too chaotic.
Natalie is a great host and was incredibly accommodating! She made us feel welcome and comfortable in her home. Her condo had a beautiful view of the city and was conveniently located near the highway, which made getting around really easy. Thanks Natalie!
If you need--or want--to be near downtown LA for any reason, this is an ideal location. Natalie's place is on a quiet block away from most of the activity, but just a short walk away from it all. And if you've forgotten anything, there's a Walmart Pharmacy and grocery store right around the corner. The room was clean and comfortable. I didn't get to hang out much because I was only there for one night, but there is a great view of downtown LA from the living room.
Natalie is great host. she is kind and her house is pretty comfortable. View from home is amazing. I recommend everyone to stay her house.
In addition, After checking out she is allowed to leave my baggage for a while. I respect her hospitality.
Our stay was tremendous. Your home was very inviting, clean, and warm. Great location and great view. Location so close to all attractions that allowed us to see many places in a short time frame. Natalie took the time to find the easiest and quickest routes using the metro rail system. ++Everything from her house around downtown on Uber was $5. Thank you Natalie for your awesome hospitality. WE APPRECIATE IT! Happy New Year!
My friend and I have spent a pretty stay here. The location is ideal, enjoying a good view of the city central. The room is neat and tidy. Moreover, Natalie has been very hospitable and available.
What a wonderful location near downtown LA...great host and I was invited to join her Christmas Eve celebration! Felt like part of the family! Relaxed, great apartment, comfortable and well looked after.
