With 20 feet high ceiling in the bedroom this unit feels like the perfect playground for a thight-rope walker ... a funanbulist!
This place is truly magical.
Part of a 7,000 sq ft historic residence, this private studio , features a en-suite bathroom and a kitchenette. The access is through the building's formal entrance and it is completely separate from the hosts' living quarters.
Located in the heart of historic Angelino Heights (Echo Park) , the property was originally built in 1887 and was home to the neighborhood’s original developer. Over the years the building suffered many alterations. Over the past ten years the building is being the object of an accurate restoration. The original Victorian architectural features were restored wherever possible, while contemporary amenities were incorporated to ensure every comfort.
On a lushly landscaped 20,000 square foot lot with commanding views of the downtown skyline, this private compound feels a world away from the bustle of city, although physically just a stone’s throw away.

So far we only had great experiences with our guests.
I love Fortuna Hotel. I am always made to feel very welcome and I'm always comfortable there. The house and grounds are just beautiful. Just being there is a wonderful aesthetic experience. I have stayed in various rooms and apartments and they are all different and a delight.
The hotel is close to downtown and the freeway and is in Echo Park but is very quiet and tranquil. I highly recommend Fortuna Hotel when you are visiting Los Angeles.
I made arrangements for the key to be picked up by my daughter. Fortuna was very accommodating. The unit was exactly like it was described and more. Beautiful Victorian home, beautifully restored. It was in a great area, close to nice resturants, bars, coffee shops. The Echo Park Lake was jut down the hill, we went for walks there every day. The street the house was located on was very quiet. The grounds were well manicured. It was a great pleasure to stay there. The only thing that bothered us was the shower situation, the bathroom was beautifully restored, there was a clawfoot tub right next to the window, we could not take showers comfortably to avoid wetting the beautiful old window. Maybe something to protect it can be installed around it (I don't know what though:-)) and the views from the top floor were to die for. Overall, this was a great experience. We would definitely stay there next time we go to L.A.
Our stay could not have been more perfect. The home is incredible, clean and very comfortable. The location is just a few minutes away from Echo Park/ Silver Lake area and is very convenient. The garden is outstanding and allows for peace, relaxation and picnics. Fortuna was a wonderful host and was in communication the whole time, making sure that we didn't have any issues. Especially thankful for the home-grown lemons and avocados...amazing! Thanks again!
Fortuna made sure that my experience was pleasant from beginning to end. She gave me guidance from the airport to the property and was there at the gate waiting when I arrived with a smile and a tour. She ensured I was happy with intermittent check-ins via text message.
The room is stunning and minimal, but still somehow managed to harbor everything I needed during my stay. In the outdoor areas, I was able to release of the stresses of the day and, by chance, I met three very sweet dogs.
The entire property is a treasure and I am spilling with gratitude that Fortuna shared it with me.
Fantastic, unique house in very charming neighbourhood. Clean room with super modern and well equipped kitchenette. Bathroom was just luxurious! Super sweet and accommodating host. Will be coming back :)
Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. Comfortable, cool, clean, convenient, quiet. The hosts were so friendly and accommodating. Such a great place...highly recommended.
