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.
Well-behaved 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 try to create a clean, comfortable and casual environment so that you feel at home. Feel free to contact me with questions about the area or if you have any specific needs during your stay.
The house is located literally in the middle of everything while being a little back from the main road in a very calm neighborhood. Paul was super responsive and was really accommodating to our presence. He prepares the room with a couple of special attention to make you feel welcome and it was overall an awesome experience!
The place was great! The house is very clean and nice and almost everything you need are in the house. It locates in the center of Hollywood which is very convenient. Although Paul wasn't there while we staying. He always make sure everything is good and reply really useful information when we need something. It's definitely a wonderful experience and I will stay there again if I get to LA again. Highly recommend!
Paul was a great host and the place is really ideally located within walking distance of Hollywood boulevard. I arrived pretty late on the first night but Paul did help me with my luggage and cereals and water were waiting for me. I slept really really well :)
It's a great place to start your LA adventure and Paul is full of tips and always willing to help.
Even though Paul had been traveling the majority of the time I was staying at his place, he never failed to make sure everything was okay. I always felt that if I ever needed anything, he would respond with a prompt reply. Overall, his home is beautiful and homey, I loved the room I stayed at, and I always felt safe there. When I finally met Paul, he was very pleasant and attentive, and the place felt more alive when he was around. I would totally come back here again!
Me and my wife had a great time in LA and this place made things a lot more enjoyable. Hollywood was within walking distance and everything in the house is working perfectly. It's clean and our host is always helpful. Paul is always there to give suggestions and directions to anywhere in LA. I definitely recommend this place to everyone.
Staying at Paul's place was an amazing experience. Very warm welcome and a pleasant stay.
Room was clean and neat, exactly as described in the (website hidden) great advice and tips on what to do in the city. Extremely helpful. If I am back in LA, would definitely stay at Paul's again.
Staying at Paul's place was my very first experience using Airbnb and I could not have been happier. The place was very clean and Paul was very welcoming, even allowing us to check in early once all was ready. He was gracious and informative, and asked throughout the stay if all was going well and I was finding my way around. It is ideally located and very well represented by the pictures provided. I hope to go back again soon and enjoy it more when I do not have as much to do as I did. Each day, he made sure to re-stock water and left some lights on once it got dark. There is on site, gated parking, which in Hollywood, can be a blessing if you have ever tried to find street parking. I completely overcompensated needed supplies, as Paul had a plethora of wonderful choices in shampoos and supplies with a sign that read, help yourself. He was right... just bring a toothbrush. There was more than ample storage space provided between a closet with hangers, multiple drawer dresser and two drawer nightstand. Also, there were two empty drawers for use in the bathroom as well. Trying to be the best guest possible, I brought all my own supplies though and did not feel cramped for space. There is also ample room under the bed for up to approximately 3 large suitcases. In short, it simply felt like being at home. Plush couches, flat screen tv, full kitchen use, ample backyard, etc were all at my disposal. I only regret not having more time on this trip to enjoy being there more, but there was much to do. In closing, as I stated before, I wish to go back again, and know that I would love to make this my first choice of where to stay in Hollywood. If you are after both comfort and great value, you cannot miss by lodging here.
