Quiet neighborhood and good location esp. if you have a car. Ying is very friendly and hospitable. Enjoyed the stay.
Nice room. Mr. Ying is very agreeable and attentive host. There is very limited cooking facilities and not many room for your belongings in wardrobe.
If these two restrictions are not a big deal for you, this room seems to be a very good solution for a short business trip in Palo Alto. The price-condition ratio is really attractive for PA.
It's great stay at Ying's lovely home. Ying is so nice and I will be definitely return!
Located at the heart of the Silicon Valley, I had a really convenient and cozy stay. The area was so quite and calm, with nice routes for a run and Philz coffee nearby. The house was clean and the room was perfect for my 1-week stay. Also a great price given all the advantages! I strongly recommend the place to anyone visiting the South Bay.
