If you do need help with directions around town or if you have any concerns, message us through the Airbnb website or app.

Other things to note

- The unit is at the back part of the house and is attached.
- We have two small dogs, but they're completely out of the way.
- It is approximately 150 sq. ft. in the living/sleeping area and 150 sq. ft. in the bathroom.
- Although we and our neighbors like to keep our street quiet, be aware that Hollywood is a lively neighborhood with many people (including the homeless), dog walkers, and traffic.
- Guests will not be able to cook in the kitchenette (why cook when you're on vacation and where there are TONS of food options in Hollywood?).

Imelda & Paula were extremely nice and sweet. They greeted us right when we got there and even had a guide book with all the rules & things to do in LA. The location was perfect for West Hollywood & parking was very easy.

I felt slightly unsafe in the neighborhood of the home than I had hoped, but there is a lock for the gate, a key code and a key for the home. Hosts are extremely nice and welcoming! Would recommend if you do not intend on cooking.

Paula and Imelda were great hosts right from the very first day. we had a late arrival and they received us warmly despite the late hours. The room itself was homely and very comfortable

I have nothing but good things to say about Paula and Imelda's place. They are wonderful people and we are thankful they shared their space with us for a couple of days. When we arrived they were there to greet us and gave us a quick tour. They were more than happy to answer any questions we had about LA and give suggestions. Their unit is nice and clean and has everything you need. It's in a convenient location. You're either a short walk or a quick uber ride to a lot of attractions. Definitely recommend Paula and Imelda's Airbnb if you are planning a trip to LA.

Ismelda and Paula are lovely hosts. It was lovely to return to their simple apartment attached to their home. It was perfect for me because it was so close to my Hollywood family, and the neighborhood street is quiet and calm. But it's also close to central Hollywood. Ismelda and Paula are very welcoming and concerned for their guests.
