“As good as I remember from previous visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2011

This was a return visit to the guesthouse after a number of years, and I stayed again in the larger room. Nicely furnished, finished and decorated, quiet, relaxing, free off street parking, short walk to the north (up and down a small hill) to restaurants, coffee, great gelato in Silverlake on Sunset. Use of the well equipped kitchen included, although I forgot while there was a coffee maker and coffee accessories, there was tea but no coffee. Not a big problem given access to many coffee choices down the street. The owners have made several upgrades including a more efficient hot water system. Enjoyed my conversations with Gary, one of the owners, as well.

A great place to stay, in Silverlake which is a fab area and one of the only areas of LA where you can walk as opposed to drive. Lots of cool local bars and shosps. Jaime and Gary who own the place are really friendly and welcoming. The use of a kitchen (shared with other room) is also good.

I just stayed in tylers place two nights while visiting a friend on the way to Hawaii. The host Donald was very helpful and the apartment is BEAUTIFUL, modern decor, spotlessly clean and beautifully presented. I can't recommend it highly enough. Silver lake and Sunset junction are lovely neighbourhoods walking distance to bars, cafes, restaurants etc. I had a great stay and would come back here anytime!

Room Tip: This would be a great spot for a romantic break

Very comfortable, clean room with everything we needed. Great location. The hosts, Gary and Jaime, are very personable and helpful. It never before occurred to me to look for a B & B, or rather, a guest house (no breakfast is served here) in Los Angeles, but I did, and what a find! Very pleasant atmosphere and I look forward to our next trip to LA.
