Quiet apartment complex, close to Pasadena and downtown L.A. Parking available on street, but if you don't have a car, not to worry--public transportation is only one block away! The complex also has two pools and one hot tub. Apartment filled with folk art from my world travels. I also have cable T.V.
You'll have the spare room to yourself, which has a queen size futon. You'll have access to a shared bathroom, kitchen and living room.
People tell me I'm a good host. Retired from Postal Service. Over 30yrs working in the theater and art scene in L.A. and elsewhere.
Staying with Mario was great and I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Los Angeles! He's a really nice helpful guy with a lot of interesting travel stories to tell. His place is located in a great area and he will give you good advice on directions. His art collection is awesome and so was the coffee he brewed for us during our stay, thanks Mario for being a wonderful host!
my stay here was lovely. Mario was so kind and helpful, he took me to the metro station during all my stay here. So if you dont have a car , that´s is awesome! Union station is 20 min from Atlantic ( the closest subway stop) Highly recommended!
Mario was very helpful and understanding, the location was easy to get to and worked perfect for my needs. If I travel to this area again, I'll be sure to give Mario a call.
Mario was a nice host. We could use the Full kitchen and we got towels. Everthing was good and we felt very well.
We had some nice talks as well as our own Privacy. We would recommend his room!
Mario is a very tidy neat friendly and helpful guy. We got good tips in LA to travel even the exact time to go and ways to go and back. Tasty coffee are offered every morning. Would recommend :)

I spent 3 nights in Los Angeles in Mario's place. He was a nice host with a good sense of humor. He provided us towels and was very helpful to give information. Overrall I had a good time in his place during my stay in Los Angeles .
Overall we had a very pleasant experience staying with Mario, he was very hospitable, the room was very very cozy and clean. Mario went out of his way to make sure that we were comfortable and respected our privacy. Thanks again Mario for warmly welcoming us to your home we look forward to possibly staying with you again in the future. :)
