Overview

About the property

In View Of The Hollywood Sign, Close To Food, Cocktails And Attractions

**** Check out time is 12:00 Noon on the last day of the reservation)] ****

This is a STUDIO apartment with one queen size bed, located in the heart of Hollywood's Media District, close to West Hollywood, restaurants, shopping, theaters, clubs and all the services you will need.... in a controlled access (keyed entry) courtyard complex with old world Spanish flavor.

This unit has all appliances: Stove, Refrigerator, built in Microwave, Toaster, Coffee Maker, Electric Teapot, as well as A/C, WiFi & LIGHT WEEKLY MAID SERVICE TOO!

It's been updated (granite counters, maple cabinets), but still holds all of the 1920's Spanish style charm.

Parking is street parking, and as I've experienced, other than on street cleaning days (Monday and Tuesday on alternating sides between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM), there is usually a space available close to the building.

The unit also features on site (coin operated) laundry facilities, cable television, plus CD player.

Utilities are entirely included.

***In deference to those with sensitivities, this is a No Smoking/No Pets Unit. Smoking is permitted outside the unit, of course***

About Herbert

My goal is to assure that your experience with me is a positive one, and I ask only that you treat the property and fellow guests with the respect and consideration you would expect for yourself.

Many of my guests are repeat customers, which is the finest kind of reference! I wear all the hats, i.e., owner, cleaner, handyman, banker, bookkeeper, and customer service representative........my phone is always on and if I'm awake, I answer it!

Herbert purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Herbert chose Hollywood

The courtyard setting is what gets the most comment for its warm and welcoming attributes. What could be better than enjoying your morning coffee next to the trickling fountain in the dappled sunlight that sneaks through the canopy of trees?

What makes this apartment unique

Walking distance to attractions, restaurants, entertainment.....

Super location, clean and comfortable accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property over a three day weekend and had a great time visiting LA! Herbert was gracious, accommodating, and gave us a helpful introduction to the ins and outs of the property on our arrival. It is street parking only, but we were always able to find a spot within a five minute walk of the property. He even found a spot for us on our arrival! The room had everything we needed - a large bed, climate control, coffee maker with included supplies - as well as other amenities such as a stove and oven. The location was a short drive (or long walk) to pretty much everything we wanted to see. Even though it is not too far from bustling nightlife, the neighborhood was safe and quiet.

I do wish the surrounding neighborhood didn't smell so strongly of marijuana (the room itself was fine), but of course that is outside Herbert's control, and I suppose now it would be difficult to find any place to stay in California without this issue.

Thanks for a great stay, Herbert!

Owner's Response: I'm always very pleased when my guests have a positive experience and strive to do whatever I can to assure that this happens. I must admit that when California passed the "recreational" use of marijuana I was concerned about this very issue - the odor we would all be subjected to - and I appreciate the acknowledgement that I have no control over this outside the bounds of my property. It seems as if this issue is getting attention and perhaps, in time, legislation will catch up with the fallout of this particular law. I have a strict No Smoking (of ANY kind) policy regarding the interior of the apartments that I'm diligent about enforcing, and over which I do have control. Meanwhile, my apologies.

Nice location

  • 3 of 5

The property was clean and very nice. The location is great as it is central to alot of things to do, and also has pretty much every thing you need within walking distance. Herbert was very nice, and did save a close parking spot when I arrived. He also had a helpful book filled with close things/restaurants to experience. The only negative is the parking, which was quite tough to find a close spot most of the time, but that seemed like everywhere in LA unless you had your own driveway. My biggest complaint about the entire stay was the neighbor's alarm clock, which was set to 8:30 am every single morning and was never shut off. It would just ring for hours until we left every day we were there, and the walls were thin, so it was very annoying, as I dont particularly care to be awoke by alarm clocks on my vacation.

Owner's Response: It is always helpful for me to have information that will contribute to my guests comfort and enjoyment of the property. It is even more helpful if I'm informed of the disturbing event during occupancy, rather than reading about it in the review, after check out, when it's beyond my ability to address. My policy, upon check in, is to assure my guests that any issues that surface will be handled by me...they need only let me know. I regret that this didn't occur, and will address the situation, post occupancy, now that I'm aware of it.

Cute and Comfy studio style apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Herbert was the absolute most accommodating host. Our flight got in pretty late and he still met us to make sure we got in ok. Even made sure we got a parking space. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed (I.e. Linens, silverware, and even toothpaste). Walking distance to Sunset and Hollywood Blvd. 10/10 would stay again!

The property was exactly as pictured in the listing, clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, comfortable and welcoming upon arrival. The location in Hollywood was great, convenient to many attractions, Ubers usually 2 minutes away when booked. Herbert, the owner, was gracious and waiting for me upon my arrival. I would definitely recommend this property, it was gated with a nice courtyard for general use - I felt safe and secure. I will definitely book this property again when visiting Los Angeles.

This neighborhood is fast becoming a 'walking' neighborhood, with most all of your needs being met without ever having to get behind the wheel!

Sunset Boulevard is 6 blocks north (left as you exit the access gate onto Wilcox Avenue) of the property, and Hollywood Boulevard (which features the famous 'Walk of Fame' and Grauman's Chinese Theater, where the stars of yesteryear and yesterday have left their hand and foot prints in cement for us and for posterity) is 2 more blocks in the same direction.

You'll be walking toward the Hollywood Sign, which will come into view as you get past the CNN building that's blocking it from your front door.....

Located on Sunset, and its side street tributaries, you'll find restaurants of diverse proclivities, from vegetarian to carnivore and many in between.

FOOD WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE:

Umami Burger (1520 Cahuenga Blvd #7, 90028; 323-469-3100). Truffles are their not-so-secret ingredient. It's tricky to find because it's in....well, hard to describe the building it's in. If you walk east on Sunset (right turn if you're coming from Wilcox) then turn north (left) on Cahuenga, you'll encounter Space 15 Twenty, and within you'll find various shops and stores...and Umami Burger.

Stout (on Cahuenga), a patio bar/restaurant. They have an eclectic array of beers, AND a truffle burger.

Be sure to specify in both these places how you want your burger cooked as their default is medium rare.

Kitchen 24 (1608 N Cahuenga, 90028; 323-465-2424). It can be acoustically noisy (cement walls that magnify the sound if it's full of talkers), and features modern basic fare. If you're looking for an all around place, this one works.

Chicken Dijon Rotisserie & Grill (6282 Hollywood Blvd, 90028; 323-463-4050; ) has a wide choice of salads and wraps (upscale cafeteria; quick service and relatively healthy, tasty food) that are built around, as you might guess, chicken. Many 'locals' go here for lunch.

Urban Masala (6554 Hollywood Boulevard; 323-957-9999) features Indian cuisine and was recommended by a recent guest if you have a craving for curry.

The Melt (6290 Sunset Blvd, 90028; 213-344-4906) serves just what the name implies: Cheese sandwiches. I had the short rib on sourdough with black bean soup….delicious. Would definitively return.

La Numero Uno Restauraunt (1247 Vine Street; 323-957-1111) serves Latin cuisine. Highly recommended by a discerning guest and great reviews on Google, and well within walking distance, about 6 blocks east.

FAST FOOD:

Pizza Hut (6660 W Sunset Blvd)

Subway (6051 Hollywood Blvd; 1813 N Cahuenga Blvd; 6660 Sunset Blvd)

McDonalds (1413 N Vine; 6776 Hollywood Blvd)

Crazy Rockin Sushi (7100 Santa Monica Blvd)

Chipotle Mexican Grill (1460 Vine)

Starbucks (6102 W Sunset Blvd)

'Alcove' (casual) and 'Off Vine' (fine dining). I encourage you to check out the reviews on 'Yelp' for a more thorough report and location information on these establishments.

GROCERY STORES:

Trader Joes (1600 N Vine: .75 Miles--about 8 blocks), located at Selma and Vine (Selma is 1 block south of Sunset, Vine is 4 blocks east of Wilcox).

Ralph's Grocery (1233 N LaBrea: 1.1 miles; 5429 N Highland Ave: 1.1 miles)

OTHER:

Walgreens (5451 W Sunset Blvd: .99 miles; 1050 N Highland Ave: 1.03 miles)

On Sundays there is an open air Farmer's Market in the 1500 block of Ivar Avenue between Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards (left on Wilcox, right on Sunset) where you can get fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers. It is open between 8 AM. - 1 PM.

TRANSPORTATION:

To/From LAX Airport: ($20 per person, flat rate); ($26 one person, $9.00 each additional person)

This site will provide you with scheduling, route, and fare information for the Metro Bus and Subway system.

Zip car (1529 N Cahuenga; 323-866-4508) is an innovative company that rents cars for as little as $6.50 per hour. Great for those times when it’s too far to walk but you don’t necessarily need a vehicle full time. They have several pick up locations within blocks of the property.

Bikes and Hikes (323-796-8555; ) offers bicycle and hiking tours of Hollywood, as well as renting bicycles for personal use.
