Couldn’t really fault the property. In a perfect location to be able to get around. Nice secure room (shared 4) with large locker. Smaller sized breakfast area which actually got you talking to people and making friends. Comfy bed and a large walk in shower.
Would be better I think if the public access times to the pool and roof bar were restricted.
The pool. The friendly staff. The location.
The room really was cosy. Expensive parking.
Everything was great about this hotel. I’ve stayed at the dorm but still was allowed to use all the same fasciitis as the regular hotel guests. The staff was super nice and rooms were amazingly designed. It’s also very close to the metro station.
The hotel was great, very bohemian and quirky. Rooftop terrace and pool are amazing and a great place to hangout and enjoy the sun.
Curtains in the room let lots of light in which wasn’t great. I like it dark when I sleep so that wasn’t great. The hotel terrace get packed with non-residents on nice days, so important to get a sun lounger early or you won’t have anywhere to sit.
I loved every minute of it. From the friendly welcome at check in, to the bed and cleanliness of the room and check out! Staff were lovely I will not stay anywhere else when I come back to LA.
