Victoria was fantastic! She was very helpful and communicative. The unit was perfect for my needs. If you need a quiet place with a beautiful backyard, this is your place! It's also incredibly convenient, maybe a 7 minute walk from the Gold line!
Victoria's place is an easy walk to the South Pasadena Metro Station, a convenient commute to putting the finishing touches of roses and flowers on the Rotary Float as well as a New Year's Eve preview of people spending the night curbside waiting for the Rose Parade and the actual Parade itself.
I enjoyed my kitchenette which included spices, tea, coffee, fruit and dark chocolate and everything I needed to cook Trader Joe meals purchased nearby.
Victoria lent me a folding chair to sit curbside for the Rose Parade which I appreciated. With a comfortable bed and hot showers in my private space, it was an excellent choice. I highly recommend Victoria's.
The room was clean and quaint. Victoria was very nice and left us cookies. fYI, for a second person, there is an extra charge of $15/night.
We really enjoyed our short stay at Victoria's Euro-Suite. The room is bright and airy. Shower has really good pressure. The backyard is so lovely we wish we had more time to relax there. We couldn't meet Victoria this time but hope in the future!
Victoria is a great host.... very accessible by both email and phone, very friendly and helpful. I was arriving quite late and Victoria was extremely diligent about making sure I could get in. Shea also called me almost immediately after I checked out to let me know I'd left something behind and we made arrangements for me to retrieve it.
The place itself is wonderful: immaculately clean, extra comfortable bed, super safe neighborhood which is fun to walk around (interesting houses on residential streets, nice shops/restaurants on commercial streets). Although my stay was too short to take advantage of them, the desk and small kitchenette would be great for a longer stay. Overall, extremely relaxing stay.
There is overnight street parking right in front, which worked out perfectly for me (had to buy a parking permit online for the modest amount of $2/night).
I would definitely stay again if/when I'm in Pasadena.
Thank you Sandy. It was so nice to meet you as well. Pleased you enjoyed your stay. Also, thank you for your kind words regarding my Coffee Shop by the Tracks mural at Busters Coffee and appreciation for the arts! Delightful to have you - please come again - you are welcome any time. Happy holidays!
Had a great experience with Victoria and with the neighborhood. Very comfy bed, had a nice rest here.
