Cool place and fun to be just under Sunset Blvd. I like Hollywood.


Hello everyone,

I think this place is nice and fun Hollywood city style things. No problems for me. Chandaleer is nice too. Yes and the management even gave pizza party, why no like, I like!


Apparently there is a rapist and he is climbing through windows and snatching people up ... oh and there is a new ghetto fab chandelier... LOVE IT! This place is so 2.0. Out with the Bed Bugs (my ex BF) and in with the fab.


Hello,

So ya, the building is now clean. I like what they did and they made it soo nice with that new lobby. I dont have issues, I'm okay. You just need to keep your place clean and you wont have issues. I really like this area and the location is close to everything in Hollywood.


Hey, the building is clean for me and I think its cool place to be. I can even see the Hollywood sign from here straight up! I dont have any issues, I'm cool. Any yea, whoever said they have a cool chandeleer...they really do...and it is cool. If you ask me, its a nice place to live and its in Hollywood Hollywood Hollywood.


not sure about all that below. but ummm ive had just one bug. Like that "lala83" person, I use cedarcide so that might be helping with the bug problem.I do know some people in the building are complete slobs and don't properly clean so bugs infest their homes and the ones next door to them. I do know that roachs like dark moist places..so if you take hot showers and dont air out the bathroom , expect roachs.I saw a dead roach in the hall way down on floor 1.creepy. hmm the "illegals" down the s

treet.I haven't seem them come over here and bother anyone. but Im not saying they haven't or won't.As for the teenagers, I don't know about that.

Oh just wrote response below. I forgot to add a few things. It's a block away from the covenant house, so if you don't mind having homeless teenagers hanging out on the corner at ALL hours of the day an night smoking weed, smoking crack, screaming and yelling at each other, fighting in the street and shattering your car mirrors and widows to get your change then yeah, no problems. The "illegals" up the street. Yeah, they gamble and get drunk but you know what.. That's a block away and they'

re gone shortly after sundown. And FYI, the condoms are from tranny hookers, so think about that next time your stepping on one getting in your car. Lets skip the hipster reviews... If "Hollywood sign" is a reason for you to move into a building, then maybe you shouldn't be reviewing the building... Because you have a lot of other things to deal with, like your obviously not from here, and to you, the "Mexicans on the corner" are obviously much worse than the "harmless white kids" doing drugs in front of the children that go to the private school right there...

Um... Yeah, right.. I live in this building. I have a massive roach infestation in my unit, and it's been over two months and they've done nothing o fix this issue. Bedbugs gone.. My ass. I'm moving next month because I can't take it anymore. Try contacting the new management company about something an getting a response.. HA!! That'll happen. Hope nothing in your unit breaks.. Oh. Chandelier. Yeah, looks like I know where their maintenance budget went to. Great idea, building g

s trashed, dryers break all the time, elevator permit is over 6 years expired and the hallways are ALWAYS dirty. Guess making the lobby look "classy" was more important. This place is a sh$*#¥le! Do not rent here

Brand new management awesome chandelier. Havent had any bugs yet.the inspection help a lot. I.just want to update some info from below.

First they do not just walk right into your apartment with out notice and knocking. They let you know when they are coming .if you do not answer then ya they will come in.they are just doing inspections which better help the condition of this apartment building ,not "stupid sh**t" as said below

Next .some need to realize this is an old building,having no b

ugs at all is unusual.but there are ways to not have many like cleaning dirty dishes right away and putting food away

Next yes you can get packages, I've got like 7 already. Sometimes you just need to let FedEx or ups know or just give them your number to call you down.

Nex. The "used condoms and illegals" haven't seen any trash laying around. As for the "illegals" they gather up at home depot.yes. they look creepy but they aren't bothering anyone or being loud.
They are in the process of upgrading the wood floors and stairs also.
I dont know about the heater situation,ny apartment gets super warm anyway I dont need to use it.

For bugs, they get a K-9 nit to sniff out the bed bugs. Inspections I heard are once a month(not using a dog all the time)
I however use a type of natural cedarcide (cedar oil,smells like home depot) which kills most,practically all biting,house bugs including bed bugs and roaches.basically the bugs you would see in a house. Used it back home,works wonderfully. The aroma alone paralyzes larvae and bug eggs. The touch of it kills the adult bugs.

It's shaping up to be a great apartment building

That is correct, then building is clear of all bed bugs issues. Well done. Anyway, it is really a great building in Hollywood WITH views of the Hollywood sign!


YO!!! Nice brand new management just took over and these guys are changing up this place. NICE!!! They got some crazy dogs that came in and smelled out those bed bugs and clered it all up. I'm lovin it baby. Ohh baby. CHECK OUT THE NEW CHANDELEER IN THE LOBBY! Sick! Lets ROCK HOLLYWOOD...


The building is infested with both Cockroaches and Bed bugs. The infestation is so bad that I receive bite marks all over my body on a frequent basis and I have found cockroaches in my bed. Management claims they will fix the problem but its been an major issue for the past 2 months.

Oh did I mention the used condoms you find outside the building when you step into your car and the gambling illegals who hang out around the block.


I have lived here since 12/11. Place is infeasted
with cockroaches. what somebody else said is true,
no heater until June. They do enter apt anytime they
want. Different apts pay different. I feel I am being
robbed! You can't even get a package from fed ex or ups delivered! Most digusting place I've ever been in!!
I have't seen any bedbugs, however, at night I always feel something crawling on me! Always dirty
mattresses at dumpster!!!

Moved in 2010, and was told that there were no bedbugs on my side of the building...low and behold I was bitten within a few days. The rent is cheap yes, but one of my biggest problems was the management would literally just walk in your apartment if you were sleeping to once again look over some pointless shit...or to fix a heater during the fuckin summer...these bastards need to focus on the roach and bed bug infestation, and needs to understand that this is NOT a dorm room, these are apartme

nts and PRIVACY is something these dumb asses don't get...so ladies, if you don't want some creeper standing at the foot of your bed askin to fix something beyond pointless, I DO NOT recommend living here..

Havent had problems with bedbugs....have noticed some filthy neighbors...one...who wrote the long letter above walked around without shoes...and wonders how insects get in her apartment. The management isnt the greatest though.


Moved in October 2009, and started being bitten in May of 2010. On-site manager had been useless since I moved in (to every concern I raised she said it was a cheap old building so the condition was to be expected, and I ought not expect it to be resolved). Specific service personnel in the main office seemed to be trying to help, and expressed they were aware of, and frustrated by, the on-site manager's uselessness.

I pitched my mattress and many other belongings in June, after two rounds

of professional fumigation, and two rounds of personal fumigation had not resolved the issue. As I was pitching the mattress I must've been too noisy, since the on-site manager poked her head out as I managed to drag the box spring down the fourth flight of stairs past her door (this is the first and only time I'd seen her during her 'designated office hours'. At which point she said to me, no joke, that there were bed bugs in the building, and in fact her newborn was being bitten but that's just the way it is in an old, cheap building. She recommended against calling the main office since, she claimed, they wouldn't do anything anyway.

Given that the management company had previously scheduled fumigations, and had been more customer service oriented than she had ever been, I called to schedule yet another fumigation. Later that day I noticed a post-it on the front door asking if any other tenants also had bed bugs (mind you, when I has asked the PCO during a previous visit if he had sprayed other tenants in the building he responded, not in the past two years). When I left at 6:30 there were a half dozen tally marks, and when I returned two hours later it was over a dozen. Mind you there are only 43 tenant occupied units in the building, so over 25% were infected.

I had kept the apartment prepared for fumigation ever since the first appointment. For the third appointment, after waiting several hours I called the main office only to be informed that the PCO wouldn't be arriving at all that day since he had had truck trouble.

When I was rescheduled I asked what if any other units were scheduled for fumigation. At that point I was informed that the majority of my floor was scheduled, including two of the 'over' occupied units mentioned in a previous pose, were mandated to participate by the health department. I asked if there was anything I could do to enhance the efficacy of the next fumigation process and was informed that, my immediate neighbors were not scheduled, but if another tenant requested their participation I may be more successful in convincing them, and therefore the fumigation process itself may be more effective.

I was able to convince the immediate neighbors easily, and learned they too had been struggling with this issue for months. When I attempted to speak with other floormates, including the two highly occupied units, I was assured of their intent to participate. Every neighbor I encountered was begged to participate, and most agreed after seeing my myriad scars. A lengthy plea was posted in conspicuous places, and several other tenants heeded the call to action. The notice clearly stated the only effective way to schedule treatment was by calling the main office as opposed to the on-site manager.

Surprisingly and unprofessionally, shortly thereafter (within a couple of hours) the on-site manager and her partner banged on my door demanding a response/explanation. She was extremely unprofessional and confrontational, blamed the infestation on the other tenants, and her employer for her lack of efficacy. She claimed she had always reported complaints to no avail/response, and I suggested that, if she could in fact prove that then that was an issue she should raise with them. She perked up at the idea that she could make some money off suing them, but did nothing to remedy the situation a significant portion of her building's tenants were suffering through. During that conversation, a neighbor had passed and overheard. Later, I learned that she too was incredibly unnerved by this 'manager's' unprofessional, confrontational manner.

The next fumigation date came and went, however, the PCO informed me he was legally not allowed to spray my space since he had done so less than a month prior. I watched helplessly as the units on my floor with the most mattresses refused the health department mandated services.

The next morning, nearly four months and three thousand dollars of lost belongings after, I awoke bitten again. I called immediately to schedule the next available, legal fumigation appointment. Another tenant suggested that, since previous notices in common spaces were immediately removed, that another appeal ought to be placed beneath doors, and that it ought to include verbiage to the effect that all pertinent government agencies would be contacted.
As these were distributed, we found the tenant who had posted the original post it. As he and I talked, she continued the distribution, ran into the on-site manager and was also confronted in a completely unprofessional manner. Unlike my previous interaction with the 'manager' this tenant was much stronger and stood their ground against the 'manager' clearly stating that it was within their rights to attempt to resolve this issue.

Later that evening I left to have dinner with a friend. As I attempted to enter her vehicle in front of the building, in full view of the management company's security cameras, I was confronted by four tenants threatening to 'kick my ass' and/or send people to, saying they knew where I lived, etc. They said they were told I had distributed the most recent notice by the 'manager' (despite the fact that she was clearly aware that was untrue).

Fearful I called 911. They informed me that I should report the incident to the local authorities, since I had already left the premises. My friend took me to the police department and they informed me that I ought to call the management company's off hours emergency number to apprise them of the situation. I followed their instructions, and documented my concerns via email when I received no response.

I continue to receive bites despite washing and drying my clothing several times, trashing everything upholstered I own, and suffering through 4 fumigations. My only hope is to iradicate the infestation with my impending move. In the meantime, I am, more often than not, escorted to and from my apartment by neighbors for safety purposes.

As the main office had been helpful, I attempted to continue my tenancy with the same company in a different building. Upon doing so, after the scheduled appointment time, I was informed by the leasing agent that she was not 'allowed' to show me other units. This struck me as suspect since she was completely apologetic for the threats of violence and the 'manager's' behavior.

Since then, I have been apologized to by the 'manager's' father, who lives in the building, for 'what's happened'. I've heard of several showings by the leasing agents despite this building's contamination. Today, I saw the main office manager, and maintenance supervisor outside, showing apartments to prospective tenants.

Bottom line: This building has a serious infestation. There are several 'legacy' tenants with high occupancy units, who refuse to participate in individual fumigation, let alone a building wide fumigation. At least 4 confirmed tenants are leaving immediately because of this infestation. No assistance is available from the on-site 'manager'.

DO NOT MOVE HERE.

When I moved into this building I noticed that there were a lot of units, which are singles,with a full nuclear family of four living inside a single. The building never was finished at all. After a lease was signed you are on your own. There is no management at all at this building. And management won't address any issues. The bedbugs in this building are particularly visious and quick. And prevalent. Every tenant is battling them. This is wintrop managemant, the same group that owns the Roxy.

Cruel management company. No tenant deserves to be eaten alive while just trying to live. While paying good rent. Please pass this along. BEWARE OF THIS PROPERTY BEWARE

Moved in and about six months later was completely plagued. Every week there is a mattress in the trash and most tenants move out within nine months. The management doesn't care, is lousy with pest control, and maintenence of the building. This place should be condemed.


Huge problem with bed bugs in this building. Completely infested.
