Janelle had to cancel our reservation 5 days before arrival. She was very apologetic and had no choice. I think we would have really enjoyed staying in her accommodation since her communications were open and friendly.
My friend Tara and I had the most incredible experience staying with Janelle! She was super friendly and helpful, and the place was awesome! Very central and easy to get to everything in Hollywood. We absolutely loved staying with her and would 100% recommend it to anyone!
Staying with Janelle was a great 'local' experience. She was incredibly friendly and helpful. As with most AirBnB accommodations, you feel like you are staying around a friend's pad rather than some impersonal hotel. Things are not quite as 'perfect' as with a hotel room but in return you get personality. In our case these included Halloween Decorations everywhere which were great fun.
Janelle went beyond accommodating with her advice and even gave us a special insight into her work which was really fantastic.
As long as you are not expecting sterile, pristine accommodation I would whole heartedly recommend Janelle's as an excellent place to stay right in Hollywood.
I had a great time with Janelle! Her house is conveniently located to the Hollywood sites, and close to a major rail line if you happen to want to pop up to Universal Studios, or downtown. She was an extremely gracious and welcoming host, who offered lots of local tips and guidebooks etc to help you enjoy your time in LA. It made me wonder why it is I have not travelled solo before now - If it's this easy, I'm going to have a blast!
Brilliant stay. Great room/facilities. Janelle was the perfect host. Generous with her time and her place, and well organized - made the stay in LA really easy. Definitely felt like a home away from home.
I had a great stay at Janelle's, really great location. The bed was great, didn't get a chance to take her up on the offer to watch cable or hang out with the awesome dogs but it was all there.
Plenty of things nearby, and Janelle pointed me in the direction of a decent coffee, the metro, and the local bars and nightlife.
Fully recommended. Better than a hotel!
Janelle was a phenomenal host! Her and her boyfriend were really cool, super-friendly and very laid back. She had tons of helpful tips on things to do, places to eat during our stay. The bed was very comfortable and the room was decked out with all manner of travel guides on LA. I would definitely stay with Janelle again in the future.
Janelle's place was a fantastic large apartment in the middle of Hollywood. When we arrived she had a welcoming package for us, fresh sheets, soap shampoo, and a fridge full of food. Her boyfriend Brendyn was a really cool guy and took us out to a bar in the neighbourhood wth awesome live music. If you have a car you can park on the street for free out front of the house and drive easily up into Hollywood Hills, or the Sunset Strip and Beverly Hills. I had a totaly blast there, thanks Janelle and Brendyn!
We had a great time in LA. Janelle's place is the place to stay. Very convenient and quiet location.
Janelle is very friendy and helpful.
I can only highly recommend to stay with her.
It was a great experience.
We spent 9 nights at Janelle's Place. Janelle and her boyfriend Brandyn are the most fantastic hosts you can think of. They helped us wherever they could (doctor, universal studios, sendin(website hidden), random questions) and made us feel home. Their place is huge,the room is perfect for 2-3 people and the bed was very comfy! We had an amazing time and the location (5 min to Hollywood Blvd) made it even better! It is impossible to get a comparable room for such a good price in the heart of Hollywood. Plus their two dogs are the cutest ones on earth! We would highly recommend Janelle's apartment as a special airbnb-experience and would come back at any time!
This place is huge! And if you're traveling in LA without a car this is the best place to stay. Janelle's apartment is in the center of Hollywood. It's two blocks from the subway and Hollywood Blvd, the walk of fame, you can hike to the Hollywood Sign or walk to the Hollywood Bowl. At this location you can actually do all of your site seeing without a car!!
Janelle's place is really a home away from home - we all get together and spend holidays there, in the spacious apartment with great Hollywood charm. Her location really couldn't be better, walking distance to Hollywood Boulevard and the Pantages Theatre!
Janelle would be a terrific roommate/landlord to have, as she is impeccably organized, and clean, keeping her place in great shape. She is also friendly and outgoing - happy to give Hollywood visitors advice and directions, and share her stories of this fantastic city.
