If you're wondering why we're not still at the top - the answer is easy - unfortunately we've been so booked up that we're less often appearing in people's searches for specific dates now - sadly for us (and lucky for other AirBNB hosts!) - this is simply a feature of how the AirBNB ranking system works. Hopefully our consistent five-star reviews speak for themselves and we'll have the chance to host you in our prime downtown loft!
Nightly rates STARTING at $159 for the first 2 guests depending on the date.

Stop worrying, stop researching, and just book Al's Prime Downtown Loft near Everything. You won't be disappointed.
The unit had been freshly cleaned about 2-3 hours before I checked in. It was clean as a whistle. It's true to the pictures, and perhaps a touch better. The windows along the north wall offer a view onto 7th Street. The bed is super comfortable. Lots of complimentary snacks in the apartment. Smooth check-in and check-out. Nice and easy.
As for Al himself, he's a fabulous host. He's always available and quick to respond to any inquiries, but at the same time he's not obtrusive. He is courteous and goes the extra mile (on the day of my arrival, he offered to pick me up from a nearby building to make things easier). He has this hosting business down to a science. From pre-booking to post-checkout, everything was handled professionally and efficiently.
Al was the most diligent, thoughful AirBnB host I've yet stayed with. He was there to meet me on arrival and make sure everything was comfortable, and the extra touches such as coffee, snacks, etc.. were all terrific.
The apartment itself is ideally located in downtown L.A., and is a fantastic spot - definitely loves up to its pictures. I'd strongly recommend anyone stay here.
Al was a most attentive, excellent host. He kept in contact and kept us well informed. He met us upon arrival and provided a complete tour and details about the property. The loft itself is exactly as pictured, a fantastic, very roomy space, furnished with all the amenities you'd need. We were very comfortable staying there. The neighborhood is an urban area that is mainly business/commercial, but with many dining, shopping and nightlife options. Al made sure to give us a rundown of what was around. During our stay, Al kept in touch to make sure everything was going well and to see if there was anything we needed. Great host, great space...I'd book this place again in a heartbeat!
I'm a producer and Al hosted one of my actors in his downtown loft. He went above and beyond to provide the best possible experience for them and they definitely loved the loft and enjoyed their stay. Al was flexible and very accommodating. I will most definitely be using Al as a host again! 5 stars!
Great experience at the loft. Al was an absolutely gracious host. His communication prior to check in made finding the address and convenient parking a breeze. (and in downtown LA, that is a feat in itself) At check in Al gave me a brief overview of the location, restaurants in the neighborhood from a quick Taco or sandwich to 5 star dining. He added a little history of the location, that I thought was a very interesting and informative touch. The loft was perfect, exactly as it was represented in the photos, actually much better in person. All the building amenities were grade A. And Al continually checked on how the stay was going and offered up his help to improve or assist with the stay.
This loft was beautiful, as advertised––maybe even better than the pictures.
Plenty of space, and easy place to work with desk and wifi. Convenient location, only a block from the metro stop. Many wonderful restaurants within a short walk.
Host was incredible helpful––allowing me to check in early, showing me around, etc. Overall, probably the best airbnb experience I've ever had.
An absolutely superb experience! The place looks exactly like it's shown in the pictures, if not even better. The host, Al, is one of the most gracious and accommodating hosts I've come across -- he was up for a 1:00am check-in...with a smile to boot! I will definitely rent again from Al for all my future visits to LA.

About the Host, Al
Airbnb's SUPERHOST with consistent SOLID 5 STAR (400+ to date) ratings and great reviews from past guests!
NO OTHER Airbnb SUPERHOST in the Downtown area has the same CONSISTENT track record!
I love Los Angeles! I've been living here for over 15 years and also working in Downtown LA for 10 years. It has been a yearly thing wherein I have a lot of guests coming over to see LA. From cousins, friends, schoolmates and co-workers from pasts. Everyone I know, knows that if they are visiting, I am the one to call if they want to see LA. :)
We aim to give a hassle-free, comfortable and relaxed stay for our guests. I think that is one of the secret why we are consistently getting 5 STAR RATINGS AND GREAT REVIEWS from ALL our previous guests.
Recently, I have been corresponding with one of our guest and she summed up what we try to be to our guests:
"Thanks so much. I'm so glad that our client in LA recommended using airbnb for our lodging needs. It feels very much like having a family member or friend in LA helping us make arrangements - so much more personal than booking a random hotel room." -Brandi
So if you are thinking of visiting Downtown Los Angeles, please give an Airbnb SuperHost a chance to host you. I promise that we will try to do our best to give you a hassle-free, comfortable and relaxed stay. And if you want, we can also be that family member (or a friend) who would look out for you when you are in town.
