Notes about the apartment:
1. The apartment has separate bedroom and living area but there is no door between the two rooms, there is just a wall and a doorway.

2. If you are a TV watcher, we apologize, the TV can be fuzzy at times. The TVs are in great condition but the cable owned by the city is not and it makes one of the TVs fuzzy.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a wonderful stay. Frances responded quickly with answering any questions we had . She was flexible when we arrived a little later than planned. It was clean and centrally located in LA. It was great to have a parking space behind in the back. The place itself was just big enough for me, my husband, and 2 kids. The only issue we had was the TV. We were unable to turn it on for some reason. Maybe we just didn't know how to work it. But it didn't matter we spent the day at the museums during the day and the kids were exhausted when we got back. I would definitely stay again!

  • In one word: GREAT.
    Frances' brother Alan was so friendly. We met him in front of the house when we arrived. He introduced us in everything and gave us the feeling to be welcome. We met him serveral times and he even offered to take us to the Greyhound-Station.
    The apartment was very comfortable, clean and is well located, just next to downtown L.A.
    Everything was as described or even better.
    If we are ever making in back to L.A., we are going to stay here. We really do recommend this apartment to everyone.

  • Frances' apartment is an easy walk to downtown, LIttle Tokyo, and of course, Chinatown. The brand new floors were beautiful and sparkling. Having wifi access was invaluable and even though there was a small desk in the living area, the sunny kitchen table was the perfect spot for me. She was flexible with arrival and departure times, allowing me to leave my bags for later pickup after one more museum visit.

  • This Chinatown Apartment is spacious, clean, well-kept, has a good kitchen (all utensils available, we made breakfast every morning and cooked some of the evenings), comfortable bed, nice hot shower. The price is really good for the quality it offers.
    The grocery market is around the corner. It is about a 20 minutes walk to downtown. We had to be at Geffen/Moca every day, and walked there (along the City Hall, through Tokyo town, ca 25 minutes walk). It is also near to Union Station (15 minutes walk) and to the old Pueblo de los Angeles.
    The neighborhood itself is a bit bland, but it is 1,2 miles to Echo Park, where there are many nice cafes, bookshops vntage shops, and a wonderful restaurant (Sage, very recommendable).
    Frances and Alan gave good directions, were very communicative and at the same time respected our privacy. Thank you very much for our wonderful stay, we certainly would want to come again!

Hi! I am Frances and am managing the reservations for the apartment on behalf of the owner Aly. Aly wants to thank all of her past visitors and it has been a wonderful experience to meet people from around the world. We hope to meet more people and offer a comfortable stay. We are friendly, down to earth people and have grown up in the area. Aly's brother, Alan, lives in the front unit and helps me to manage this place. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help improve your stay.
