Martha was absolutely wonderful. The apartment was much larger than expected, and very comfortably furnished. She was quick to accommodate me and my changes to the stay last second. The listing itself is extremely central and in an envied building, well manicured and quiet. There isn't a bad thing to say about Martha or the listing!
No hassle, excellent location with nearby food and entertainment options, and clean!
This was my 2nd stay at one of Martha's places. And just like before the apartment was very clean and comfortable. Absolutely wonderful experience! Perfect place to see all that Hollywood has to offer. I highly recommend Martha's apartments! Martha is a joy to deal with and always gets back in a very timely manner. I wish all host would be as attentive and detailed oriented as her. I know I will be and look forward to coming back!
Martha was great host. She got back to me very quickly by text when I had questions once I arrived. The apartment was bright and clean and very comfortable . The location was perfect for our stay, close to everything we needed and wanted. We stayed as family with 3 children (20mths, 11yr ,14yrs) and were VERY pleasantly surprised by how quiet it was in the evenings. I would stay in the Alexa again with or without children.
As always Martha was al lovely host again! There were complications with my trip and I needed to move my dates, and she was more than accommodating. The apartment was extremely clean and well put together.
As usual, my stay at the Alexa building was great! This was my favorite unit that we have stayed in so far - it was huge, big enough for 5 people or so. In addition, it was decorated beautifully and extremely clean. Originally, I had booked a studio apartment for the night but Martha later informed me that the apartment I had booked was being renovated. Because of this - Martha upgraded our stay to this beautiful 1 bedroom at no extra cost! This kind of hospitality is unheard of these days and I really appreciated it! My boyfriend and I love this building so much that we have considered moving here. All in all, I would recommend this building to anyone looking to visit Hollywood. I will stay here again and again, especially for the price!
We were very happy with our stay! The location was great--we were a little concerned about being so close to the tourist section of Hollywood, but you really don't notice it. The building hasn't been updated in awhile, but it was charming and quiet. There's a parking garage right next door so you don't have to worry about finding street parking, and the apartment itself was very clean and comfortable. I'd definitely stay here again!
