Great coffee shops nearby including the Basix Cafe and Coffee Bar one block away, and a nice five minute walk to Starbucks and the Coffee Bean. Basix is also a great choice for brunch, and you are one block away from Hugos, a popular restaurant that hosts what many consider the hippest brunch in Los Angeles. You, too, can have brunch with the beautiful people.
Walk to many major shopping areas: The Grove, Beverly Center, Melrose Avenue boutiques such as Paul Smith, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, A.P.C., Maxfield, H.L.N.R, and many others.

The whole neighborhood is safe, walkable, and you don't have to get in the car to grab a quick bite and run errands; this is a very unique feature in Los Angeles, and makes it more like New York and other walking cities.
Close to many of LA's best restaurants: The Ivy, The Farmers Market, The Village Idiot, Animal, the Urth Cafe, Koi, STK, Belmont, Bastide, Nobu, Fig and Olive, and many others.

The sofa in the living room folds out into a queen size comfortable bed to accomodate a 3rd or 4th guest.
Recently renovated, this modern condo is beautiful throughout, with hardwood floors, area rugs, a high-end audio system in the living room with thousands of CDs, a 42 inch Panasonic plasma flatscreen TV with premium cable, with lots of interesting books and magazines. Nicely furnished, with an eclectic collection of original art and photography.
Non-smoking apartment and friendly, secure building.
Strictly non-smoking inside and out, even on the patio. Please be considerate of our neighbors, especially while enjoying the patio and in the pool area. Lots of hard surfaces out there and voices really carry to an amazing degree,
This was my second stay at Bill´s place and that should say it all! Loved staying there just as much as the first time. The nice and clean apartment really does feel like a home away from home. Great place and super host! Thank you so much Bill for letting me stay at your place again!!
I had a great stay at Bill´s apartment. Very nice place that felt like a home away from home. Bill was a wonderful host. Great communication from beginning to end and he knows what you need to know. I really appreciated the tour of the apartment and building when I arrived and all the information I needed was also written down on a piece of paper in case I forgot something. Great location also! Thank you so much Bill for letting me stay at your place!
This is like the best deal I found in Airbnb for my trip to LA. Bill's apartment is in a great location. The apartment is clean and it actually makes me feel like I'm at my own home.
Bill is a great host, very friendly, he gave me all the informations I need and more.
It was the first time we've booked with airbnb and it was the best choice we could have made. The location was extraordinarily good and it was exactly like in the pictures on the website and even way better . We have spent almost 7 weeks in Bill´s apartment and we felt like staying at a good friend's home. It became our home away from home. The next time (hopefully next summer) we will chose this apartment again .. no doubt about that! We would warmly recommend this apartment to everyone who is looking for a safe, tidy, well equipped, exclusive and quite apartment in the heart of West Hollywood. We had the time of our lifes in L.A. and this place was a big part of it. Thank you Bill for letting us share your beautiful home.
We had a great stay at the apartment it was clean, newly decorated and a lovely space to live in for 9 days a real home from home!! Perfectly located to enjoy all of LA (we also drove to Vegas) and the local area was so lovely and friendly everyone would say 'morning' or give you a big smile. Pool area was great and mostly empty so we laid out for a few days pretty much on our own. All in all a great apartment i would definitely stay here again and give it a 10/10. Would def recommend it to anyone thinking of using it.
This is a really, really nice apt - it's spacy and has a comfy bed. The location is great. You can actually walk to the clubs on The Strip as well as to shopping on Melrose, and public transport is just around the corner, as are great burgers (Irv's). Bill answered all my queries very quickly and provides lots of complimentaries (soap/shampoo, coffee/tea, detergent etc). I highly recommend this place.
