The space

Spacious 2 bedroom apartment with 2 full bathrooms. Fully equipped kitchen, and cute balcony. You will have a private room with your own bathroom. I may or may not be staying in the second bedroom!

Guest access

The Master Suite ( your room) includes a private full bathroom, walk-in closet and full access to communal space which includes the living/ dining room.

Interaction with guests

I will personally hand over the key and be available by phone. I will be working and out of the house Monday - Friday. 8am - 5 pm, and in the evenings you can find me in the studio ( garage). If you are new to LA I would be happy to recommend cool places to see & good restaurants.

The neighbourhood

This neighborhood is very walkable and extremely romantic. Historic Chinatown has been the location for several Hollywood Kung Fu Movies. Lots of inexpensive dim sum, obscure markets, galleries and bars.

Getting around

Very very close ( one to two blocks) from public transportation.

Other things to note

Parking is easy to find but I will not be providing a space.

I had a great stay at Darya's apartment, she was a total pleasure to meet and very helpful and friendly. Location was perfect for me and the apartment was cozy and comfortable. I would most definitely stay here again.

Darya's apartment has about everything you might want. It is set just off the main street in Chinatown on a cul-de-sac. A three minute walk gets you to the main attractions in Chinatown if you are into that kind of thing. I was always able to find parking near her place every day for the week I was there. She has a nice assortment of records and and many books on philosophy, art and culture. The room is private with its own bathroom with an additional privacy door setting the room and bathroom apart from the rest of the space. The bed is super comfy with an additional memory foam topper. Her company was pleasant and we had some nice talks. Thanks!

Staying with Darya is not really something i would recommend. The location in chinatown is good and she is very friendly, but the appartment is not clean! The bedroom and especially the bathroom were very dirty (hair in sink and bathtub,...) pitty because (as i said) she was very friendly.

I had a great time. This is one of the best Airbnb apartments I have stayed. First, the apartment is located conveniently close to Union Station: about 5 to 6 minutes uber ride away. It also a door that separates the guest living area from other rooms to offer some privacy. Guests will have their own bathroom too. Darya is very nice and helpful. Did I mention that it's a short walk from the metro? All in all, this apartment is amazing.

I had a wonderful stay! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to meet Darya in person, as it was Memorial Day weekend and she was out of town. But, she was great with communicating details about getting the key, and getting settled into the room/apartment. The photos don't even do it justice. The kitchen reminded me of a quaint, modern, cottage-style kitchen. The room itself was perfect, and it comes with it's own bathroom! The guest room and bath are separated with a door from the living room and rest of the apartment, so it's like you get your own little studio! In terms of the neighborhood, I had never been to Chinatown before, but it was totally safe, quiet, and a great little experience! The apartment is steps away from authentic and awesome chinese restaurants, galleries, shops. And steps away from the Gold line, should you not have a car, like me. ;) I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend to others!
