We stayed in this apartment for a month. We enjoyed our stay very much, again many thnx to Alexandra. Really very close to tourist zone. A lot of cafes and supermarkets in a 10 minute walk distance. The apartment is full of day light (big windows). Alexandra was very kind as a host and always ready to help when we needed something. Neighbours are nice and quite. I should mention some things for other guests: fire station is nearby, so be ready to hear some noise (truck signal) from time to time, the road is close to the apartment so it causes come noise. Also the parking was not very easy for us for the first week. After the host kindly helped us to solve the problem with parking place. In spite of mentioned above I will highly recommend this apartment, you will love it if you come!
Alexandra's place was a great apartment for my 6 weeks in LA. The location was great for me. There are plenty of great restaurants and shops within a few blocks (sushi, American, Thai, and a UCB theatre, etc), and also it's about a 5-10 minute walk from the Pantages and all of the restaurants and stores around there. The apartment had exactly what I was looking for. It was contemporary and simple (minimal decorations, standard kitchen equipment) in the way I wanted for one of my first Airbnb experiences. The apartment also had the furnishings and utilities that I was looking for (AC, dishwasher, a great big Smart TV), and I knew that if I needed something else Alexandra was just a text away. Do be aware that there is laundry on site but it does take quarters in case that affects you. Alexandra's place was a great spot to live for my time in LA! Thanks Alexandra for a great stay!
The apartment is in general fine. We had a great stay for three months and the area is great. With that said we had a lot of issues. The host is very slow to answer and we didn't get to meet her one time even though we tried to. The apartment was cleaned very shallow, when we arrived. The downstairs neighbor were very loud with music and computer games specially in the weekends. Furthermore the washing machine costed $1.75 and $1.25 for the dryer, which is listed as included in the home. The host did leave coins for us to buy quarters for the machines but the amount didn't even cover a wash per week. The biggest heater didn't work. The kitchen is very wanting. There is almost no kitchen tools only table wear and 2 pans, which is not sufficient, when renting for longer periods. We had to buy a lot of kitchen tools ourselves. The apartment is for four persons but there was only beddings for one bed so we had to ask the host for more bedding, which arrived several days later. In our opinion it should be there from the day the apartment is booked. Furthermore, we only received one key for the apartment and the clicker for the garage didn't work. Last but not least the parking space listed wasn't available for the first month. We did get a refund for the parking space though.
Response from Alexandra:
I always welcome criticism as it makes a host better, but accurate criticism. Not everyone will have the best time, and everyone has different preferences but I find the review unfair. Anytime you said you needed anything I brought it. You said you needed a blanket for your family in the other unit and I bought one. You said you wanted the same blanket and I bought one. We arent even responsible for providing additional stuff but anything you needed I brought you. The washing machine I have no control over, I am sorry if you feel it was too high, there is a laundry mat cheaper right down the road if this was too high. If the heater didnt work you could have messaged me so we could have a maintenance person come and fix it, same with the clicker. Whenever there is an issue a tenant emails me and I have the problem fixed. I do agree I responded late on some of your requests because I was out of the country, so I apologize for that. I am sorry you had these issues but this is a brand new apartment, with only one person staying a few days before you. All brand new furniture, fully supplied kitchen with a toaster, blender, kettle, all knives, silverware and cups.
