IDEAL HOLLYWOOD LOCATION. Walk Score is 95, with many restaurants located within 3 blocks. Only a short walk to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Hollywood & Highland entertainment complex, The Dolby Theater (home of the Academy Awards and America's Got Talent), and the El Capitan and Arclight theaters. There is an LA Metro station at nearby Hollywood & Highland for easy access to Universal Studios, LAX, downtown, etc.
Walk to all the Hollywood sites, and it's only 1 mile to Melrose shopping, 2.5 miles to the Grove/Farmer's Market, and 2.5 miles to West Hollywood. The Burbank studios (WB, Disney, etc.) are only 1 exit away. See my Guidebook for recommendations within walking distance.
Fitness-minded guests will appreciate the easy walk to nearby Gold's gym, LA Fitness and Runyon Canyon for hiking.
There are cross-town buses within 1-3 blocks, and a Metro at Hollywood and Highland (10 minute walk).
I will usually arrange to be home to welcome you during check-in, but the house works on a digital code entry so arrangements can be made for you to gain entry any time it's convenient for you.
This is a NON-SMOKING household -- smoking of cigarettes, INCLUDING E-CIGARETTES, is not allowed at any time anywhere on the property. If you are a smoker or e-smoker, please book elsewhere.
Children 5 years of age and older are welcome. If you are traveling with children under the age of 5, I do not recommend trying to book a shared space on Airbnb. There are many available whole-house rentals which are great for traveling families (I manage one so message me if you're interested).
Well-behaved pets and service animals are welcome, and will be charged as an additional guest.
No smoking or unannounced overnight guests, but in general guests should consider my home as their home -- they are free to come and go as they please and have access to the entire house.
Paul was a truly fantastic superhost! It was like staying at home with a 5 star hotel service, as he anticipated every question or need his guests might have. The house and the room were spotless and lovely. Paul is a very nice and very interesting person, and I really appreciated our talks and his tips on the best restaurants nearby. I wish I had stayed longer... Thank you so much for your warm welcome Paul, I look forward to coming back !
I loved staying with Paul. I received such a nice and warm welcome (his house is lovely!) even though it was rather late that evening. Everything was perfectly prepared and I felt instantly at home. The place is quite central and you can get to all the hot spots fairly easily. Definitely highly recommended. Definitely a highly recommended location and a big thank you to a great (friendly and charming) host! You're always welcome in Monaco/Bavaria.
Paul was an absolutely wonderful host - very personable, warm and welcoming. I felt at home - the room and house was very airy, clean and bright and in a great location. I will 100% book with Paul next time I'm staying in town as I can't imagine a better AirBnb stay
Paul was the best host! My family got stranded at 1am in LAX due to cancelled flight. He welcomed us late and was gracious host. He was clearly an experienced AirBNB host because he had set up everything to be as seamless as possible. He provided small perks like energy bars and water each day and a very detailed binder of information. The binder detailed information you'd need to know during your stay, places to eat, things to do, tips about LA, etc. It was amazing.
His home was very nice and gated. It was clean, nice-smelling, homey, and well-decorated (including three Emmy's!!!).
In addition to all the above and beyond hosting, he was unbelievably kind. My family made the most of our 24-hour delay and toured the Hollywood area at his recommendations. Early into our tour, he texted us saying that if we were tired or needed a ride to some of the sight-seeing locations, to give him a call and that he'd be happy to chauffeur us around. While we didn't take him up on his offer since we didn't want to intrude on his day, the gesture itself was amazing.
While I could go on and on about Paul and his lovely AirBNB home, I'll leave it at this. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paul as your host or as a friend. I hope he comes out to the DC area so I can repay the favor in the future.
I LOVED LOVED LOVED staying with Paul! He's super sweet and a great host. This was my first time using airbnb and I felt at home as soon as I arrived. The entire apartment was perfectly prepared and clean. It looked exactly as I imagined it from online. The neighborhood was safe and I even walked to the Hollywood Walk of Fame from his place. I encountered no problems at all. He's also a short distance from The Grove (amazing shopping center) and WEHO. I also walked to Runyon Canyon Park from his place and felt extremely safe again. The bedroom gives you plenty and space and a comfortable bed. The bathroom has numerous supplies for you to use. It was also pretty cool to see his Emmy award in the living room. When I come back, I would definitely love to stay with Paul again.
I love Paul and staying at his awesome place was the best, what a super cool friendly and intelligent guy I don't see how you could possibly find a nicer or more easy going yet professional host on Airbnb. He's at once out of your way and leaves you alone to do your own thing and equally ready to help, to chat, help you find what you need while staying in LA it's all up to you. He even does your laundry as part of the service I kid you not. I wish I could extend my stay but this place is super popular and already booked up well in advance and it's easy to see why. The house is clean, comfortable, friendly and has all the amenities you could ask for. The bed is super comfortable. I haven't slept so well in years. Like. A. Log. All the good ratings and nice things people say on Airbnb about Paul are throughly deserved and correct. He even drove me to the store more than once. 6 star hospitality. Thanks Paul for a superb first airbnb experience I hope to be back soon!
I had a fabulous stay! Paul is very good host, very hospitable, keeps a very clean,neat and well organized place. Felt like I was in paradise! Had a good time! Good choice! Thanks Paul!
