Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • My stay here was just perfect! The place was cleaned up and already set up for me when I checked in. The apartment was very spacey and even had a closet for me to use which was perfect for some of my clothes that wrinkled easily. Everything was within walking distance so I didn't even need to use my car at all during my stay. Lauren even provided two tap cards to use for the subway (which was only a few minute walk away) which was very generous of her. Lauren is a great host and her place is definitely the best spot to pick for anyone visiting downtown LA.

  • Lauren was extremely nice and helpful. She met me on time, was very friendly when she showed me around the apartment, and provided everything I needed. The apartment was exactly as advertised on the site.

  • Lauren's apartment is very nice, and easy to reach from downtown LA via public transportation. Lauren herself is a great host, helpful and flexible about arrival and departure times.

  • Lauren's apartment is clean and very comfortable. She did a great job of communicating with me before and during the stay. I was in town for Intel ISEF at the LA convention center. It easy to walk to the convention center from Lauren's place in the morning, and my UberX ride home late at night was only $4!

  • A very cozy and comfortable apartment, very easily accessible to the public transportation. She had ensured there was some food in the refgrigerator for a quick meal and that to us was a very sweet thought. We had a great stay at Lauren's apartment, I would definitely recommend her apartment for others.

  • Lauren's place is spacious, clean, very conveniently located for the Convention Center and Staples Center. Lauren was helpful and flexible in planning for checkin and I very much enjoyed staying at her place.

  • We stayed at Lauren's and it was perfect for what we were looking for! Lauren was a great host who was an excellent communicator leading up to our trip, which helped put us at ease since we were new to Airbnb. Her place was at a perfect location for the Staples Center - about a 10 minute walk which was extremely convenient. The apartment is a nice studio - it has everything you need. We would stay there again, especially if going to an event at Staples Center.

  • I had a great time staying at Lauren's place! The apartment is very clean and comfortable and most of all Lauren made me feel very welcome! She was very accommodating with everything I needed, our communication was very easy and she even texted me to see if I was ok after a big earthquake (yes I managed to experience one of those during my 3 nights). I would definitely stay there again and I highly recommend it to everyone!

  • Lauren's place was great, perfect for what I needed. It was about a ten-minute walk to the convention center, a few blocks to the Blue Line Metro, and just steps to the Big Blue Bus that goes to Santa Monica. Lauren was very responsive in the weeks preceding my trip and was friendly and helpful once I arrived, providing recommendations for groceries and taxi to LAX.

    The apartment itself is awesome; perfect for one or two people, a clean, well-kept flat in a super quiet building; I don't think I ever even heard the neighbors. It was particularly nice to have access to the kitchen for cooking. There is some noise from traffic, but it was on par with what I'm used to living in a city. The bed is not the most comfortable, but it was adequate.

    Thanks Lauren for helping make my first trip to LA so easy and relaxing!
