Very open-floored apartment with a good sized living room connected with the kitchen. Great View on 10th fl. Bedrooms are great sizes and bathrooms are clean and nice. It is located on The Miracle Mile, in the heart of Hollywood yet in a quiet area.
We stayed in Milad's apartment for a week. The flat is clean, in a safe neighbourhood and located in an accessible location for us to see the main sites of LA. There is fairly limited on-street parking in the area which could be inconvenient if you have a car. However, we used über so the location of the apartment was ideal! Great stay, would definitely recommend to others.
After reading all the glowing reviews for this apartment, all I can say is that everyone has different tastes and standards. We were looking for a certain location, within a reasonable budget, and this met those requirements. We were told that the (huge) housing develpment is about 60 years old, and it shows,although it was relatively clean and secure. As to the apartment, I got the feeling of a bachelor pad. Granted, this is not a hotel, so certain aspects will not compare, but everywhere has pros and cons, and here they are, in our opinion. Pros: Clean, nice view, washer and dryer in the apartment, dishwasher, wifi, 2 large bathtubs, minimalist decor (good for families with small children), access to a pool area, and there was also NetFlix, but we didn't actually get to use it. Cons: Overall the apartment was "well lived in" and not in the best shape, Carpets and rugs were very worn and stained, Kitchenware was basic and in rough shape (no gourmet chef here for sure), towels provided had seen better days, and parking is very limited. Apart from the apartment condition, we had a little discomfort with the communication and the person responsible for check in/check out while the owner was away. 2 days before our stay ended, we were asked to allow that person to come pick up the owner's car keys, but had no confirmation from the owner, which we were uncomfortable with. There were urgent emails, the story changed a couple times (owner was back, then it was a friend of the owner who needed the car), and our phone number was given to the person who wanted the car. In the end, they were fine with waiting another day until we left, since scheduling was an issue, but it was a bit of a hassle to deal with while on vacation. I'm sure this is not the norm for every stay, but it put a damper on our stay. Nevertheless, the owner did get back to me and apologized for the confusion and hassle. Overall, this apartment met our basic needs and also had some perks we enjoyed that we might not have had elsewhere.
I would rate this place 3.5/5 because of the location & somewhat safe area. Everything we wanted to do was nearby. Downside was that hosts "friend" made us wait a little over an hour after our scheduled check in time because previous renters left after checkout time. Parking wasn't secure as listed, more of a first come first serve type of parking. We got lucky. It was spacious and overall clean besides the fact that there were items from other people.
Listing description was inaccurate, much further from Hollywood strip than stated( extra 15 min uber drive away) Listing images were updated after we arrive(URL HIDDEN)looks nicer in pictures) Pool access was also listed at time of booking however on arrival we found out this was inaccurate and had to pay an additional 10 dollars per person per day to use communal pool. When we attempted to contact host to clarify we did not get a response for several days- host's communication poor throughout our 18 day stay. Key arrangements on arrival and departure undesirable. Host did not communicate key arrangements for departure in good time ( requested for us to pack and leave apartment within 2 hours on the same day!) Apartment was clean, neighbourhood safe.
Hi Monique, I'm sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with your stay. We clearly stated in our listing that pool and gym was at an extra cost and not included in our apartment (as you know the price of the pool is managed by the apartment complex itself and not us). The checkout time, as indicated on our listing, is at 12 (noon) and my friend really wanted to get in no later than 1 pm to clean for the next guests, so I find it a bit odd that you are dissatisfied with being able to stay an hour extra. In any case we appreciate your stay and hope you were able to enjoy yourselfs despite the miscommunications. Wish you all the best!
Our stay at Milad's condo was amazing! The location is ideal. His place is clean and very big with lots of sunlight. It included a full kitchen with dishwasher, washer and dryer, WiFi and Apple TV and more. Communication with Milad and his friends for the keys was really easy. You also have access to a pool/hot tub and gym located a few blocks away.
Everything was great at Milads apartment. The location is very convenient and it is close to the main spots. We were two couples and the place was spacious enough with the 2 bedrooms and the 2 bathrooms. The place was clean as well. We did not meet Milad, but this was ok since a friend of him took care of the check in and checkout. All went well and I can definitely recommend staying at his place!
