My favorite Airbnbs in Los Angeles

Los Angeles is one of my favorite cities in the world for three reasons: the people, the weather, and the scenery.

As much as I love the city (and I guess, as a San Francisco resident, I’m not supposed to!), staying in Los Angeles is never cheap, particularly if you want to stay in a hotel. Because of this, I actually can’t even remember the last that I stayed in a hotel in the city. While I usually have friends to crash with, I wanted to share my favorite Airbnbs in Los Angeles.

Secluded, Contemporary Bungalow in the Heart of Hollywood

My first favorite Airbnb is this gorgeous, newly renovated bungalow in the heart of Hollywood.


As someone who barely drives, my favorite thing about this Airbnb is the location. It’s walking distance to a ton of great, local restaurants (as well as some guilty pleasures like In-N-Out!), a short Uber to Runyon Canyon, and even close to L.A.’s train system. There’s also an airport shuttle bus nearby, which makes the commute into and out of the city a breeze.

The apartment is set up beautifully and perfect for solo travelers, couples, or even small families. On top of that, the host is amazing and incredibly responsive, making this Airbnb a great option for anyone looking to book a stay in Hollywood.

Spacious Spanish Home

Spanish Home

If you need more space, you should definitely consider booking this spacious Spanish home that boasts 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and a beautiful balcony for roughly the same price as a nice hotel room.

The house is in a central location, located close to the Beverly Center, and is beautifully furnished in a way that will make you feel right at home. The home also has a 4.98 rating on Airbnb (with 53 reviews as of writing this post!), so I’m clearly not the only one who is a fan of this listing.
