About this listing

1 bedroom apartment with private kitchen and bathroom, wi-fi. Well-lit, cozy, nice breezes, pleasant. We (me and hubby) live in the upstairs unit. Close to downtown. Visiting Sci-Arc, Inner-City Arts, Staples Center, attending a conference downtown and want to be able to retreat a bit at the end of the day?

Important Note:
There is only street parking available in an admittedly crowded neighborhood. 2 guests can be hosted, but would recommend only 1 car for ease of parking. Thanks!

The space

We're very close to Calstate LA (3 min. to our north) and Downtown Los Angeles (to our west - 6 min. by car).

Small but pleasant living room area with separate bedroom and bath. Nice light and cross breeze.

We (the hosts & owners) live upstairs.

What makes this listing unique? The unit is a nice getaway from downtown's busyness -- especially if you're going to be doing a lot of exhausting work, networking for a conference, etc. At the same time it's quite convenient to downtown. Especially now with Uber and Lyft --

The view of the city is incredible. They don't call it City Terrace for nothing.

Washer / dryer

We're friendly, will try to catch you for a chat or cup of tea, for sure. But you will be in your own private unit, so plenty of time to yourself.

I enjoyed my stay at Alanna's place. She and her husband are very kind and responded quickly to texts. This space is great for a short stay; it's clean and centrally located in LA. It's a very cute apartment exactly as shown. I only rate it as 4 stars because of parking. Other than that, I recommend this spot to anyone coming to LA.
