The Space

The room is very cozy and sweet. It features a queensize doublebed. There are several armchairs and sofas and a cheminee.

The room is in a small house with two more bedrooms and a big kitchen. The furniture in general is rather antique hence there is a great atmosphere in the house, not only because of the piano in the kitchen.

The house is very central at downtown Palo Alto and very close to Stanford campus. There is also a big garden that can be used.

  • Felix's little old house is an oasis of quietness and thoughtfulness and I could not have felt any more at home than there. The other members of the house were charming and there was always time for a chat. As it is ideally located I am sure that at my next visit in this area I try to book it again.

  • If you don't care much about cleanliness, this place was perfect. Nice spacious room, great location very near downtown Palo Alto, and lovely friendly roommates. BUT, the bedding was not cleaned, I found hairs on the pillowcases, so I was pretty grossed out. Maybe this was an honest oversight, but for $120/night I should have at least had clean sheets, so I will not be staying there again. The bathroom is shared with 3 people and isn't the cleanest but wasn't terrible either. So I'd recommend if you can confirm with the renters that the sheets are washed beforehand, then it is perfectly fine.

    Bari, I am terribly sorry!!! When I just read this - I was SHOCKED!! You were supposed to have a clean room with clean sheet and I totally agree. May I give you a refund somehow of the rent you paid? I am so sorry!!!!! My friend told me all was good!! I feel really bad!!

  • Felix was out of town, so his housemates were in charge. They were polite, and the lodgings were clean, spacious, and quiet. The house is old, and has the exterior appearance of a place college students might rent, but the interior is as clean as it could be - far cleaner than anything college students would inhabit. The (admittedly few) things I needed were all provided, including a place to hang clothes, which I appreciated. It seemed that most people in the house (myself included) had work on the days I was there, so I didn't get a sense for the hosts as people, but they seemed friendly. The surrounding neighborhood is nice, and I felt completely safe walking back late at night. It's a 10-minute walk from downtown, and a 20-minute walk to the Caltrain. I would seriously consider this place again, were I to need short-term housing in Palo Alto.

  • A very pleasant night. The host wasn't there but the other roommates were quite welcoming. Also, thanks for accepting us on such a short notice.

  • Even really last minute booking i had a great time in palo alto. If you are open to less convetional solutions its a good option. Very easy going flatmates.

    Liebe Anna, danke Dir für Dein Feedback. Also war das Badezimmer echt so schlimm? Das tut mir sehr leid, ich war viel auf Reisen und nun nicht da seit ein paar Wochen. Danke für das Feedback aber! Liebe Grüße, Felix

  • This house is in a really lovely, leafy neighbourhood in Palo Alto, close to University Street and not far from Stanford campus (you can walk). The room I stayed in was particularly nice - lots of space, cool furniture, fireplace etc. The best thing about the stay was when Bernie & Alex were around. They are more permanent residents (although travel a lot) and went out of their way to make me feel welcome and enjoy my stay. Thank you!

  • I stayed at Felix's place for two weeks. Really convenient location, very close to Stanford campus. Room is big and bright and also features an amazing bed. Felix is a best host you can think of, friendly, hospitable and helpful. Overall, highly recommended!

  • My room was big and spacious, and the location is very close to University Ave and Stanford, which was extremely convenient for me. Also, I couldn't ask for nicer roommates; they were terrific! Overall, I had a great stay!

Seit 3 Jahren lebe ich in Berlin und arbeite in der Medienbranche. Vorher habe ich mit Studium und Reisen viel im Ausland und weiß es daher sehr zu schätzen, was es heißt, eine schöne Wohnung zu bekommen, die typisch ist und von der normalen Jugendherberge / Hotelzimmr abweicht.
