I am a professional singer/producer from NYC.46 years old.
Husband is a film maker from Glasgow, Scotland
We are very creative artistic family. Artistic/Creative types fit very well at Taft House.
Angelyna's place is a wonderful ! And so is Angelyna and her family.
This was my first air bnb experience and it couldn't have been better. I stayed with Angelyna for a month and the space is just lovely. It's private and comfortable. The book shelf is awesome too! So much to read out on the tranquil terrace.
It's just 1 minute walk from the very cool Franklin village which has 3 great bars/ restaurants and the UCB theatre best improv comedy in Hollywood. Gelsons and a great coffee joint all in the same precinct. It's a fabulous spot and Angelyna and her family are so welcoming and accommodating I was always asked if everything was to my liking (it always was) and I felt caress for.
Highly recommend this Anelynas place if your looking for a spot in Hollywood. Also close to freeway access for getting around easily.
Thanks again Angelyna
Our stay at Taft House was VERY special and a perfect fit for my daughter and I. Angelyna and her family are WONDERFUL. The location is convenient and close to the Hollywood Bowl, Griffith Park, terrific restaurants etc... LOVED IT!!!!
Angelyna was a wonderful host, she was thoughtful and communicative, and patient with my friends who spoke very little English. The place is in a fantastic location and is very clean and comfortable. We only have great things to say!
The room, the bed, the bathroom is all very clean, comfortable, cozy, beautiful and private. And very close to Franklin Village with plenty of good restaurants, cafes, shops. Angelyna is a wonderful host - warm, friendly, allowing you privacy but also making sure you are provided for. I will stay here next time I'm in Los Angeles.
I don't know where to start with how amazing Angelyna, Taft House and her family, are. It really was brilliant. 5 stars hardly does it justice. Angelyna picked me up from the airport which set the tone for a trip in which she and her family went so well and truly beyond what I could ever have expected to make my stay incredible. The house is beautiful and the area great. I would regularly run up to the Hollywood sign! Everything seemed to be on my doorstep! The room is lovely. But most of all, as a family, they are just unbelievable. Angelyna's daughter is adorable (and very talented!) and would invite me to watch films or have a snack. Whenever I was struggling to find my feet in LA Angelyna would would talk everything through with me. They literally 'made' my trip in LA. I can't wait to go back and I would never ever consider staying anywhere else! As I say, I really can't do justice to it all in a little review like this! The perfect mix of space to do ones own thing, and help and support beyond what I could ever have expected. They're very special and unusual and they should be the poster campaign for Air bnb!
This was my first Airbnb experience, and it was definitely a pleasant one. The space was neat, tidy and spacious. The location is perfect for someone visiting the LA/Hollywood area. It's minutes away from the Melrose Ave. boutiques and is right off of Hollywood Blvd. Even though it's close to everything, it still feels neighborhood-y and safe. On-street parking is free and I never had a hard time finding a spot.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to meet Angelyna. However, based on several phone conversations with her and the reviews others have left, I know she's an all-around awesome person. Very helpful and easily accessible for questions/concerns. I did meet her husband Paul and their son - they were both very polite and welcoming. I also got some quality time with their kitty, Frankie. Super cute.
As one other poster commented before, the road noise from Franklin Ave. was a little bit loud at first. By the second day though, I didn't notice it near as much, and it never kept me from sleep, being comfortable, etc. Overall, great first experience with Airbnb and I'd definitely stay at Angelyna's again the next time I travel to LA. It's a great combination of price, location, space and quality.
This is a comfy little place in a great neighborhood if you desire to be near H'wood/Los Feliz. Angelyna and her husband Paul are very welcoming people and their guest room is a private little oasis that makes it feel like visiting friends or family instead of the sterility of most hotels. Great jacuzzi bathtub lets you soak away the grime of LA, but it's a glorious grime to be sure. A tip: bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper as the noise of Franklin Ave. can be imposing at night and do take to heart the "bohemian" description of the room. Overall, though, choice lodgings.
I loved staying here, it is such a cool place. I didn't want to leave! The room is very clean and private, and Angelyna was a great host.
Angelyna is the best host around the world !!!!! I love her house, full of positive energy and great people, she is so nice, helpful, just wonderful !!!! she made that my stay in LA was just amazing !!!!!!!!!!!
The room is very cozy, clean, and well equipped, the location is in the heart of HOLLYWOOD definitely recommend! you'll be very happy by choosing to stay in this room !
I needed a short-term place to stay while waiting for my apartment to become available and Angelyna was extremely accommodating on such short notice. The apartment is delightful, as reviewed by other guests, and the location is great. I have to emphasize the kind-heartedness of the host and her family; I couldn't have asked for anything better. A beautiful home and family. Thanks, Angelyna!
