I have stayed here twice and have loved both times!
So value for money and LOCATION!
Just off Hollywood boulevard so your not getting all the main road traffic and in a nice little coldesac.
First time I stayed with 2 girlfriends and we had the private room with shared bathroom which was fine, we didnt see any other guests in the bathroom the whole time!
Second time I stayed with my partner for a week in the private room with ensuite. It was exactly like a hotel only in a big house!!
We looked at some hotels in the area and they were all soooo over priced!
The only thing it doesnt have is a pool and A/C but we just opened windows. We were there smack bang in the middle of summer as well so didnt have a problem with the room and heat.
Great little kitchen.. we brought some cereal and milk to cut costs a little as we were at the end of our 5 week USA holiday.
FYI no elevators and a few stairs so you will need to drag your luggage up stairs if your on level 2 or 3.
Would really recommend this for singles, couples, friends etc
They also have a bar crawl that me and my partner did which was fun and a great way to meet a whole bunch of other people! :)
I have lots of photos of my trip on my blog
Enjoy your trip! :)
