We had a great stay. The apartment was as described.. Clean and comfortable. Room was very easy to access and in a great location. Martha is a lovely host.
The place was horrible, we checked out after one night, since the place was not clean. The sheets and towels were stained, there was left overs of food in the fridge and the floor was sticky. When we called Martha she showed no interest at all when we said we wanted to check out and refused to even discuss a refund. We will definetially not recommend others. We ended up paying double on our honeymoon stay in LA since we couldn't bare the place.
Regarding Mr Or Amit and Sharon.
Apartment 1R. Reservation dates of Mar 29 – Apr 5. Booked reservation on Feb 15 2014.
This is a warning to all hosts, as airbnb clearly tells us, “You're always in control of who stays at your place, and it’s OK to say no.” If I can go back in time I would say no to Or and Sharon. I strongly and definitely do not recommend these two people to any hosts.
As hosts, you will not be given any opportunity by the Amits to address any concerns which Or and Sharon may allegedly have. They do not tell you. Instead they expect to have their complete money refunded after they have checked in, stayed the night, stayed past our normal check out time, and only stated, “This is not what we expected.” In my opinion, this suspicious behavior makes these guests horrible guests.
I received a telephone call on Sat Mar 29 at 10:11 pm. Or Amit claims he did not receive the entry code to enter his apartment. If he had shown any interest in being a good guest he would have read all the information I provide. I remind and remind all guests to note the entry codes. On the telephone, I patiently directed him to the three messages I sent him on Feb 15 with all the information and instructions. I also verbally told him both the front gate entry code and his apartment 1R entry code.
I received a telephone call on Sun Mar 30 at 9:44 am. Sharon called to inform me they checked out. She never said what her issues were. Sharon only said, “This is not what we expected.” Once she said they checked out and did not tell me their concerns and wanted their money refunded, I informed her they are free to stay or go but it is the property owner’s policy not to refund any monies at this point in time. It remains their room. Sharon asked me to reconsider. I told her it is not my policy but the property owner’s policy. She said, “Well, we are still checking out today.” And she ended the phone call.
I received a text message on Sun Mar 30 at 11:13 am. Or and Sharon wrote: “We checked out. Keys are at the night stand. We request you to re-consider our refund request. Have a good week. Saron&Or” The apartment was fine enough for them to stay overnight and to stay past check out.
I sent a text message on Fri Apr 4 at 8:27 am. I wrote: “Or and Sharon. The reason the property owner does not refund is we cannot most likely get this apartment booked by another guest at this point in time. Also you did not give me the opportunity to address any concerns you have about the apartment that is when you have arrived for your reservation. You did not state the issues you have regarding 1R. By telephone, Sharon only said, ‘This is not what we expected.’ Thank you and take care, Martha.”
They submitted their review Mon Apr 7. Their review seems suspect. Compare other reviews of apartment 1R and the photographs. We have an excellent cleaning girl. Other guests comment positively on our comfortable and clean beds. Or and Sharon claim there were leftovers. We leave items in the refrigerator, counter, and cabinets, which we believe other guests might want to use if they choose, such as seasonings, salad dressing, coffee, condiments, whole onions, garlic, etc.
Or and Sharon claim I showed no interest. However, I was following policy. These guests did not tell me what their issues were. I do not have the power to refund money and I told them that. I told them the property owner follows airbnb’s option of strict policy. “Strict: 50% refund up until 1 week prior to arrival, except fees.”
The strict policy also states, “If the guest arrives and decides to leave early, the nights not spent are not refunded.” This is what Or and Sharon Amit did. However creating excuses and reasons to check out early does not mean it ought to go their way. If they came from another country and did not like the city or neighborhood, they should have been honest, not created fabrications.
Airbnb states, “If there is a complaint from either party, notice must be given to Airbnb within 24 hours of check-in.” However, they knew their assertions are baseless and unjustified that of course they never contacted airbnb.
Hosts, remember these names. Or and Sharon Amit. They are dirty and shady way to be as guests. They heck in and stay the night, pass our normal check out time, do not state issues, want their money refunded. These two people are and sounded suspect to me, so I could only step aside and allow Or and Sharon to do what they had already made up their minds to do.
They state in their review that I showed no interest. It seems to me that they did not hear what they wanted to hear from me. They wanted two nights free and all of their money refunded.
Fantastic location just near the walk of fame,felt like we were living in Hollywood rather than staying in a faceless (website hidden) and plenty of living space, not forgetting the walk in wardrobe.Martha was a fabulous host easy to contact and always replied promptly and helped out greatly with our requests.Great to wake up everyday with the Hollywood sign at the end of the street and the stars on the sidewalk at the other end.Would recommend Martha as a host and the accommodation to anyone wishing to visit Los angeles.
Our stay at Martha's went fabulously. The room was just like the description & pictures. Martha was fantastic with communication and a very lovely lady. Location was perfect, super close to all the main attractions just one street back from Hollywood blvd. would definitely recommend this room.
For one person or a couple this would probably be a pretty good room. The area looks a bit seedy at first but I felt perfectly safe and would recommend this for a shorter stay. The Internet was a little too shotty for my liking but that's not that big of a deal
The apartment is clean and very spacious. It was awesome to make our little breakfast in the morning with the equipment of the apartment, before running around all day!
It is indeed VERY WELL located, just a few blocks to all of Hollywood's greatest attractions. The residents of the building are very friendly.
Martha was an amazing host. She responded to all of our questions very quickly. Also, the last day, after we checked out, Martha was able to arrange for us to leave our luggage at a safe place so we could do more sightseeing without having to carry our suitcases. That was very appreciated!
We already recommended Alexa Hotel to our friends. Thanks for everything!
We had a wonderful experience staying at Martha's place. The room was spacious and the kitchen was a plus. There was lots of closet space and the location was fantastic. It was right in the middle of hollywood walk of fame and we were able to take the metro rail and the buses to various tourist destinations. Check in was easy breezy, so was check out. We personally did not meet our host but everything we needed was there in the room. The place was right in the tourist destination but at the same time it was not loud and noisy. It was located on a quiet street. We had some amazing fish tacos right down the street ( pls try it, they are amazing ).
We will definitely recommend this place to all our friends and also look forward to coming and staying at Martha's place in the near future. There is so much to see!!!!
Located 1 min away from the Hollywood blvd, spacious, well equiped appt. A very good place to stay in LA
Great place at a great price to stay in Hollywood.
Crystal clear direction ans instructions for check/check out.
Nice big room with cable/WiFi - I'll definitely be back...
Location! Location! Location!! This room is located in a fantastic location. It is literally 1 block from Hollywood Blvd.
When we arrived, all of the details which Marta had provided were accurate. The photographs are up to date and match the room.
Despite being right off of Hollywood Blvd, the building is very quiet. It is located right in between West Hollywood and Silverlake, so if your socialising takes you to either or both of these locations, you're on to a winner here. Uber trips between the apartment and the 2 locations costs about $10-15. Also, the Metro station is just a few blocks west.
The kitchen was well equipped and all appliances worked perfectly. The bed is super comfortable and clean, with lots of room to move around.
The bathroom was good, and the toilet was clean. The water ran very hot immediately, so a warm shower (or a cool one) is not a problem.
There is a lot of storage for clothing, with a large walk-in style closet.
This room is a great price, in a fab location, and is quiet and relaxing.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
