What a cute place to stay right in Hollywood. We had 3 girls staying here and it was great. It is within walking distance of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Although there is a large homeless population, we never felt unsafe walking to and from the apartment, though we did not loiter in the streets after dark. It was nice to have a kitchen and we were able to save some money by cooking in the apartment, rather than eating out every night. Overall it was a great place to stay if you want to be right in the Hollywood area.
We had a nice, spacious one bedroom apartment, everything was beyond my expectations, especially when you consider that it's next to Hollywood blvd for a very modest price.
there's only one small thing that comes to mind that's less than 5 star is wifi quality. You can still use internet with no problem, you can download things, but..
There were constant lag spikes. Can't really use skype calls, or video games.
Otherwise, very clean room, much better than my own shampoo and other shower supplies, very nice beds, sofas, kitchen with almost everything you need.
I can honestly say that my stay was great! Keep it up!
Great experience living here! It's near the Hollyhood St so the traffic and finding food are very convenient.
El departamento tiene una excelente ubicación. Además es limpio y muy amplio
This was really a perfect haven in Hollywood. We really value our privacy so we didn't want to deal with a host doting on us and this place was perfect for that! They give you the codes and you come and go at your leisure. Late check in was no problem since we didn't need to connect with anyone. The place is big enough for way more than two and has a cute little kitchen so we made breakfast there! It even has real shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Might seem small to some but I loved that it wasn't some tiny off brand hotel version. Be warned, there's no coffee maker but there are a few places within walking distance to buy your coffee. There is also zero parking for less than your first born. The lot next door is $28 for a day. Even with all that I would come back next time I was in Hollywood.
The listing is exactly as described and Martha and Joyce made the process of staying in their apartment very simple.
The apartment is in an excellent location, close to the best of what Hollywood has to offer (plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance), and came with clean towels, shampoo and shower gel.
If I ever have to visit Hollywood, this place will be at the top of my list.
