For the money, you probably can't do much better in LA.  There's much to like about Villa Brasil.  The exterior is bright and inviting, with flowers cascading above the motel room doorways.  The staff is uniformly warm and helpful.  The Brazilian cafe attached to it was tasty.

The rooms are more of a mixed bag.  They aren't terribly attractive, although they have clearly put more personal touches into them than at your average hotel.  But some of the fixtures and furnishings are a little dingy, and not terribly harmonious with the more colorful touches.  Worst of all, the mattresses and all the pillows are encased in plastic.  I suppose this should make me happy as it is probably hygenic and cheap, but it's crinkly and uncomfortable.

i used to live around the corner and, after walking over to check out the scene, had my mom and sister stay here when they came to town. the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. the two rooms i saw were small, but quaint with the convenience of a kitchenette, flat screen tv, etc. basic, but seriously unbeatable for the price / location. besides, who wants to stick their fam at the econolodge? my mom and sister were very pleased with the accommodations, especially the beautiful courtyard area with flowers galore and a small table and chairs outside nearly every unit. they never mentioned any plastic covered bedding, though my sister did say the bathroom could have been cleaner and that there was actually hair around the bottom of the toilet. when i visited i thought the bathroom needed help, too, maybe a little paint or at least some scrubbing.

I love staying at this little funky motel anytime I'm down in Southern California.  The owner told me that when he bought the property it was a crack-house and he & his wife remodeled the motel mostly themselves.  They did a fantastic job and the place is really attractive now.

Hard to find from the street, but once inside their parking lot, you are greeted by an explosion of bright colors & Brazillian decor.  The rooms are very cozy & contain small kitchenettes complete with a basket of fruit upon your arrival.

I have to agree with the other reviewer that the beds & pillows are not the most comfortable being encased in plastic, but are definitely adequate.  Their prices are fair enough at $80 per night and the adjoining restaurant serves up some delicious flavors of Brazil that they will deliver to your room upon request.  The staff are very friendly and accommodating to your needs.

This motel is charming.  The rooms are very clean.  There is a bowl of fresh fruit in the room.  The mini kitchenette is nice.  Pets are very welcome here.  We will be back for sure!

Eartha Kitt. Someone on staff was playing Eartha Kitt in the parking lot while working. Yes, baby. Her luscious pipings caressed the arc of lively bushy plants all round the small u-shape of ground level rooms. As she sang out "Santa Baby" crimson trailing bougainvilleas adorning the walls let you know that someone here understands color and care.

The owner Fatima also owns and cooks in the Brasilian cafe next door. The food is ok, but she herself is brilliant. We went to the cafe and had a friend along who had special dietary needs and could only have pureed foods. Fatima herself in the middle of the lunch rush made a special dish from lentils and plantains for him- He loved it, not just because it was good- which it was- but because she made something just for him. As we paid I noticed a postcard for the motel next door.

We came back later in the day to check out the motel, and once again Fatima came through- She gave us the key to the largest single room they have. It was small as motel rooms go, but filled with amenities- a small fridge, bowl of fruit, extra blankets, and painted with bright rich colors. And if you need anything else, the staff will find it and bring it by. We needed an extra lamp and an iron- delivered in minutes by a guy that was so easygoing he made his job look like he was just strolling around with a smile. This place was like home with no bed-making or cleaning. Although like home there was a noisy neighbor- soundproofing was not great, but I felt so comfy I fell asleep easily anyhow.

Each room's door is adorned by a small painting of a tropical bird with its brazilian name. Sweet touches like this everywhere. And Eartha Kitt singing. Wild bird. just for me.

squinka loves it here.

Loved it.... the only thing keeping this place from getting 5 stars is the need to have housekeeping early in the morning when needed.... other than that we absolutely loved it....rooms are very homie.. this place almost felt like a bed and breakfast... the restaurant next door was awsome... we were here during the NCLS and wanted to catch the baseball game b4 we went out...we locked our selves in our room to watch it not knowing that the restaurant had to huge flat sceens and was televising it... our dog also loved it maybe the rooms not that big for him but they welcomed him...no doubt the owner was a sweetheart making sure we were happy and making sure coco was doing ok too.. will defenitly stay here again..

I thought that the bedding could have been a tad cleaner, but for a place to crash for a night or two, you'd definitely want to come here. It's got a cozy warm feel to it with beautiful colors and art all around you. I also met some great company to chat and share wine with during my stay.

Across the parking lot is an outstanding Brazilian restaurant with very good home cooked type meals. You don't need to go anywhere far to feed the appetite.

For just 80 bucks a night, I'd stay here again if I was in the area.

loved staying at villa brasil. the atmosphere is beautiful! flower-festooned, tables and chairs ourside each room, creative room names! but the best thing is the rooms! it's as if you are staying with your Latin American grandmother, if you had one! rooms are very clean and smell fresh! bathroom immaculate, water pressure perfect! stayed in two different rooms and beds were super comfy in both. I didn't want to get out! the only thing I missed was complimentary shampoo/conditioner/lotion... so that's why the four stars. but the value can't be beat :)

I stayed here for one night recently and for the money you can't go wrong. Really charming, small, and colorful rooms with an ultra accommodating and hospitable staff. Loved the Brazilian decor, fresh fruit basket and cozy kitchenette.  Selections of cool jazz played in the parking lot.  The doorways were draped with cascading, lush foliage, bursting with color.

** Some earlier reviews mentioned that the beds and pillows were encased in plastic??  Apparently, Villa Brasil has since decided against this practice, thank heavens.  One Grandma Rose in my life was enough.

Upon reading the earlier reviews I'd also noticed that the motel has obviously upgraded the decor since that time.

They are also cat friendly!

I love this place! I stumbled upon it by blind luck during a visit to west LA. I had been very dissatisfied with the options on the big travel sites. It was very expensive (roughly $120+) to stay at the main hotel chains, and apparently they aren't even that great. So, stuck in traffic on the 405 near Culver City I'm checking Yelp for what other options I have close by. Villa Brasil popped up and they had great reviews. Out of sheer curiosity I stopped by to take a look. It was $85 a night that weekend and I asked if I could preview the room. The manager was very nice and agreed without hesitation.

The room was average size, but had everything I needed. Wall-mounted TV, wi-fi, clean bathroom and shower, heater/AC, refrigerator, microwave, kitchen sink. It was very clean. My bed happened to be pink, which was interesting...and my bedside lamp was pink as well...hmmm...

Parking was great, atmosphere was pleasant and most of the people staying there seemed to be older. Overall a very charming place and great place to spend the night. Very conveniently located too, it's right off the 405 and really close to all of West LA.

If you pull into this place off Washington, you might think you'd stepped into another country. The staff is pretty cool - the morning we were checking out, the woman who runs the place with her husband saw me in the parking lot - "Are you staying another night? I'll give you guys the apartment upstairs!"

The rooms are small and cozy so, if that's what you're looking for, this place could be perfect for you. The only downside I really experienced was their internet system was just being figured out - they got it together on the second day.

I'd go back here.

This place is amazing, a real hidden gem.  Everyone is super nice and it has an amazing atmosphere.  The rooms are a bit small, but very clean and suitable.  Nice bathroom, HD flatscreen, mini fridge, desk, and breakfast bar.  There are also little hang out spots outside your rooms.  They have chairs and tables to lounge at.  There is also an awesome cafe as well.

Overall, it's cheap, great people and service and more than fairly priced.  STAY HERE, you will be satisfied.

Free porn and plastic sheets!  Woo Hoo!

The restaurant next door was really good.  Steak, fried plantains, & rice.  Tasty stuff.  Over the top South American pop concert playing on the TV.  Hung out in the cafe a little longer just for that.

The owners did a really nice job decorating the outside parking lot.   Beautiful plant life all over.  I posted some pictures.

The rooms... eh.  Like I said, the beds and pillows were covered in plastic.  And while surfing the channels late at night, i stumbled upon some wicked free porn streaming via windows media player and into our room.  All that and a complementary bowl of fruit.

Most of the motels in the West LA area are really sleazy and really crappy. I was so excited once I found this place! Very affordable, extremely clean. The staff is very nice and the area is very safe. They have wifi Internet, cable TV (flat screen). There is also a pretty nice restaurant next door, Cafe Brasil which is pretty tasty although a tad bit pricey. Parking is also prime, right in front of your room! An overall great motel for this part of the city, I would definitely stay again.

I highly recommend this place--so long as you're not looking for luxury! It is conveniently located in Culver City, near the 405, about 20 minutes to Hollywood and 15 minutes from Venice beach. The rooms are cosy, with tile floors and quaint paintings on the walls. They come with a fridge and microwave and there's an AWESOME Brazilian cafe next door! Plus tasty coffee shop opposite! But, most of all, I love this place because the rooms are super-clean & the staff friendly and Brazilian. A huge step-up from Motel 6, etc. but at around the same price. Oh, and they take pets($20- fee). The rooms are about $100- per night, but they are on the small side. I recommend calling before you arrive to make sure they have rooms available.

The place is cute and is reminiscent of Brazil in more ways than one.

Plus side...The motel is brazilian:

-Cute, brightly colored decor
-Brazilian music piped outside of the rooms; small tables out front so you can read/enjoy the sun
-friendly service
--relatively economical (but add 14% tax to the advertised price--it's not exactly cheap)
--good water pressure in the shower (but no bath mat??)

Minus side...The motel is brazilian:

--Thin walls (motel allows pets so the &*(_ barking dog next door woke us up at 6am a few times)
--I spotted a rat crawling into the brush outside of our room when we first arrived (thank god it wasn't inside)
--They never once serviced our room during our stay (as a rule, they don't on sundays but we were there on more days then just a sunday).
--Our bathroom had a bit of an ant infestation

I might stay there again, but I might also seek out a place with thicker walls so I could get some quality sleep!

This is review comes after 2 visits spaced about 2 months apart.

Our first visit, I thought Villa Brasil was pretty decent. For me, cleanliness is key to rating any motel/hotel, and Villa Brasil did well enough. I did get one suspicious bug bite after this first stay, but it wasn't exactly attributable to our stay.

The second time we stayed here, the room was absolutely disgusting. I hoped they changed the sheets before we arrived, but they definitely didn't do much else! There were half full Corona bottles. A used towel was draped on the sink.  An extra room key was still left on the counter. In the bathroom, there was a used bar of soap as well as used packages of the provided shampoo and conditioner. The towels were not folded nicely. The room just looked like it hadn't been cleaned at all.

The other annoying thing is that there is no curtain for the rather large window in the bathroom for either of the times we stayed.

The thing is, we got the room at about 7 in the evening and then entered the room after midnight. They had time to do a thorough cleaning and they didn't. Very disappointing. We didn't complain because we were only sleeping there and leaving early in the morning, but we definitely won't be staying here again.

That's really disappointing because it's probably the cheapest non-sketchy motel in the area. The decor is pretty cute and the courtyard atmosphere is very cozy, but the cleaning! I showered 3 times after we left. UGH. Tile floors, flat screen tv and wi-fi.

This place was great. There was a complementary fruit basket in the room (the apples were good), along with candy. The inside was very clean and the TV had a lot of movie channels. I would definitely stay at this place again.

The only bad part was that there was a droning noise for most of the night. It sounded like the room next door had its bathroom extractor on the whole night, or like there was a big refrigerator next door. I would still recommend this place over one of the major chain motels cuz it's different. Don't stay at room 104 cuz that's where I stayed and where that weird noise was.

All i have to say is DANG gurl. This place was poppin an lockin with all you would ever need in a motel. We rolled up into our room and BAM....flatscreen tv. Oh ok, i see you guys...hookin us up with the flat screen an what not...cool..cool. All of sudden we turn back to see a mini fridge set-up in the corner of our room!!! Really!? Ok, we were cool with just the tv but yall are goin to go the extra mile an provide us with a unit to cool our beverages?! nice....real nice. The beds were more comfy as hell an felt like we were sleeping in the clouds. The people were as friendly as Brazilians get. All jolly and what not. We also tried their restaurant connected to the motel and all i have to say is.....yes mama. I took that food back with me that night and ate it in my cloud bed. If yall need an affordable place to stay that will accommodate all your needs...this is it. Peace yall.

I really wanted to stay here after reading the reviews, and it's close to where our daughter lives....but they were not nice to us. First off, I called and was told to make my reservation online, which somehow was not that easy to do. So I decided just to go in myself.
When I got there, no one was there and the sign said to go next door to the restaurant. I waited there while the cashier messed with the register tape for 5 mins. Then finally he asked me what I wanted, I said I wanted to stay in the hotel, and he said he could help me. As we proceeded to the hotel he told me the room was $90. I said it was only $75 online. And he told me in a rather rude way that was the online price only...
Unfortunately, I don't like being fleeced so I stormed off....they will never have me as a customer....and I could have been a frequent one as I visit my daughter often

I highly recommend this place. It's hard to find a place on the Westside to stay in without spending a fortune. This place has all the charm and conform of something in a different country. Don't take this the wrong way, that's a plus. It's clean, cozy and extremely quite! The bed is comfortable and there's plenty of hot water. These people really care. The attached restaurant is one of the best ethnic places on the west side. The decor is warm and charming, bold colors, a nice table in front of your room and lots of tropical plants. Worth twice the price! I am in LA a lot for film work and this is a great alternative to pricier and sterile hotels.

For a small motel this place is great. We booked a room for New Years Eve and I have to say we were just as happy as we were two years ago when we were last here. It is nice to go someplace that doesn't seem corporate owned and still get good service. Staff is nice, rooms are clean, but not fancy. It is great that they have a small fridge and microwave in the room. They also had a fruit basket which was very nice. Next time we need a place to stay we will be back.

This place was great!

It's very quaint. I stayed here the past weekend on a mini-vacation. It was very relaxing. Once  I arrived, there was brazilian music that played throughout the entire parking lot. It felt like the music was being played specifically for me for my arrival. I believe every room had a working bathroom/shower, fridge, coffee pot, & kitchen sink. There were a lot of cabinets to place many different items from your baggage to your snacks/food. Dogs are allowed & even though the pet deposit was cheap, i regret not bringing mine.

Someone is always at the front desk to service you or answer any of your questions.
It's a few miles from the Venice Boardwalk and i wish i had my bike because there are so many places to see there and so many things to do at Venice Beach.

Right next door is their owned cafe, Cafe Brasil. Try their Pao de Quejio (cheese bread) it's amazing! Their Rancheira Skirt steak is served with rice, black beans & a salad. It was so tasty.

There will be a Brazilian Festival this upcoming September 8th & because of a great experience here, im definitely thinking of going back to book this place & attend the festival.

FADE IN:

EXT. LOS ANGELES. NIGHT.

A rare dark and stormy night in Los Angeles. Torrential downpour strikes the city.

INT. MIMI'S LIVING ROOM. NIGHT

A modest but comfortable apartment in Los Angeles in a torrential downpour. Mimi sits on her couch a perplexed look on her face as she looks out the window at the cold and windy world.

                                                            MIMI
                                                (quietly)
                                                      I'm starving. There's nothing in here to eat.

Mimi slowly puts her feet to the floor. Sighs heavily. Looks at her dog.

                                                       Let's go Jack.
__________
And with that, I put my leash on my trusty dog, and set out in the rainy wilderness known as LA. It wasn't until an hour later that I realized I had left without my apartment keys and was now effectively locked out of my own apartment. It's now 10pm and I only my drivers license, dog, car keys and $80 cash in my pocket.

I called a locksmith, who couldn't break the lock. My building management was closed for the night and my dog was looking at me like I was a total A-Hole. His puzzled "what the hell is wrong with you and why are we standng out in the rain, you dumb b*tch?" made me realize we had to get a hotel until the apartment manager opened for business the next day.

My handy yelp app led me to Villa Brasil Motel, located in Culver City. The front desk manager was nice and friendly and the $10/night charge for a dog was sweet releif to my meager $80 pocket. The hotel room itself was $60 something, a great deal for a night on the westside and really all I had in my pocket.  

The room was... interesting. A cute little room, with tile floors and a microwave. The bathroom was clean and surprisingly, came stocked with products for showering. The bed was comfortable.

All in all, a great deal for cute little hotel.

I love Villa Brasil Motel,
I stayed here this past weekend and I really did feel like I was in Brazil!
The decor of the motel both the inside and out is beautiful.
I felt like I was staying at a Brazilians house, eating brazilian food, listening to brazilian music, while I talked to some brazilians I met on my stay. Sounds like I pretty much went to Brazil right!

The owners are extremly nice and welcoming.
There is also a Brazilian restaruant right next door.
You can call in and get your food delivered to your room!
And to top everything off staying at Villa Brasil is very affordable!
I love this place.
I highly recomend staying here, you're seriously in for an adventure!

I really liked the decor of this motel, inside and out. My bf and I stayed for one night over the past weekend. The room size was typical for a motel, but they have definitely done much to transform this motel-  to give patrons the look and feel of Brazil. The room was more than reasonably priced, and centrally located; we were mere minutes away from every tourist destination. While we did not have the opportunity to dine at their on-site restaurant, my bf stated that the restaurant smelled absolutely wonderful.

There are only two things I didn't like about it.

The first thing is the registration process. I am used to registering on the phone or online. At the Villa Brasil, their process involves faxing or emailing registration paperwork, including billing information. Once they have received the paperwork, if they have availability for the nights you requested, they register you. In my case, I  faxed my paperwork to them at 2:30 pm CST requesting two nights and received a call at almost 9:00 stating that one of the nights were not available. So, they cancelled the entire registration. Luckily, I decided to call them on the day of our arrival, and was told they had a recent cancellation.

The other thing is the smell of the room. This place is pet friendly, and you can certainly tell. The smell of dog permeated the entire room. I don't own any pets for a reason, and when I'm paying for room accommodations, I don't want to feel like a dog is constantly next to me. Though I was forewarned that this motel is pet friendly, and I really love the concept, I was taken aback by the smell in our room.

I love the look and feel of the Villa Brasil, I just don't love the smell. And so, for that reason, I would probably not return.

You can't beat this place for the money. Unlike any motel you'll see in LA. It screams Brasil !!! Wonderfully decorated & painted. Owner couple is typically super Brasilian nice. Their restaurant next door is awesome too. Each room has a little patio set outside where you can hang out sipping a drink. Although I've never been to Brasil, it felt like I was there.

I stayed here for two nights. I wish the furniture was different. For example, the bathroom sink didn't have any room where I could put my toiletries other than a small space in front of the mirror. I also wished there was a shower door with a bar where I should hang my towels and clothes rather than only having shower curtains and some hooks.

I didn't know how to lock most of the windows, which was a little concerning.

I liked how you don't have to hang a sign outside the door to prevent the maid from cleaning your room (you would have to hang the sign to ask her to do the cleaning).

I really like how there was a kitchenette with a fridge, microwave, and a sink. If you bring your own food, don't forget to bring dishwashing supplies like I did. There's also a coffee maker, coffee stuff, paper cups, plastic cups, various towels, toilet paper, shampoo packets, soap bars, ac you can control, a heater, wifi, and a tv.

Overall, this is a decent place to stay. There's one parking spot per person.

Villa Brasil is a family-owned and operated motel. It is charming and quaint, painted colorfully and reminiscent of the Brazilian Tropical Charm. Each of the rooms has a little sitting area outside of it, and a kitchenette inside.
It is pet-friendly.
I have booked friends here, since i once lived nearby. Every single person who stayed at Villa Brasil came back to me, highly complimentary of the accommodations.
I would check friends/family in at Villa Brasil again.

So glad my dog's animal hospital recommended this pet friendly bed and breakfast (breakfast is not included but they give your room apples). I was short on options since I was displaced from my apartment as the apt mgmn't made my living room and kitchen what seemed to me like a hazmat zone. (Ill be writing their review later)

My 12 year old poodle and I were out of many options and this family owned hotel welcomed me well after regular business hours. I checked in for 2 nights and have been in great health, and my poodle has loved napping and catching up on his rest here with breezy cool rooms (even though its hot n sunny out).

The Cafe Brasil restaurant right out front is also 5 stars in my book bc of the delicious food and the overall feel you receive here.
It's just exactly like a cafe I've always been meaning to find. Super friendly husband and wife duo who make the motel feel like a hotel-- and the food feel like home. I had the Portuguese sausage sandwich and tasted the chicken milaneza even the small side salad is just right. The paradise drink is really good (iced tea and lemonade) -- I would come back for this drink and just sit out with a book. also looking forward to trying the Brasilian coffee. What's nice is when you have a dog and he's napping in the room you can bring eat your food right out front ... honestly, I didn't want to leave!

Thank you Villa Brasil Motel, I got great rest  after an extremely stressful situation and you made 2 days of our lives quite peaceful, that goes far more than 5 stars. Thank you for being so warm and for keeping the room clean. Even though I heard a neighbor here and there making weird noises, the value for the visit has left a lasting impression. I would definitely recommend any friends to stay here for a nice nights rest located right next to a very mouth-watering restaurant.

This is a really cute place to stay. When you pull in the colors are wonderful . It makes you feel like your somewhere other than where you are. The only bad thing is the guy who sat outside my door late at night talking on his phone. That was a little rude to me but thank god I was so tired I was able to fall back asleep fast . The Restraunt next door is definetly  a plus. Check it out. I would for sure come back to this place. Ask for a cash price you'll stay cheaper.

Villa Brasil is a super cute place to stay on the westside. I've been eating at the restaurant for years (LOVE) and recently stayed for one night when I was in a bind. It was clean, affordable, and I felt more than welcome.

I used the wifi to work and was happy with the connection..plus lots of channels on the flatscreen! The room was a tad chilly. I had extra blankets in my car that I threw on the bed.

Check out is 11am. Yummy apples offered in the room..plus a nice kitchenette for those with extended stays. One parking spot is included with the room. Located right on Washington Blvd, out-of-towners can take a short bus (or bike!) ride directly to Venice Beach and it's close to the freeway.

I recommend this hotel to those who are well travelled (outside of the US) and aren't super picky as it is not a luxury hotel.

A vivacious slice of beautiful life Villa Brasil mixes the comforts of home with the vibrancy of Brazil.   The room was quaint and offered a kitchenette with delicious green apples, coffee maker, and mini fridge.    This is a great place at a great price with undeniable character.  We will definitely return!

Yelp 100 Challenge * 38/100

I made our reservation about 2 weeks prior to our stay with great joy knowing that we're paying at a very affordable rate for quality service - and that's exactly what we got! Upon checking in, my parents and I were given two keys to a room with 1 queen bed and 1 twin bed - chocolates on one bed, fresh fruit basket filled with apples, a cozy kitchenette complete with a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker (with coffee, sweeetener, creamer, oatmeal package) and a sink. We had a closet next to the queen bed with 2 extra blankets provided, a suitcase rack and multiple hangers.

Bathroom only had a couple of shampoo sachets. Good thing we brought our own set. There was also 1 soap bar. Television had a boatload of channels so my father and I switched from watching my favorites Comedy Central, NatGeo, Food Channel and some sports for him.

You will absolutely love the Brazilian memorabillia that surrounds the colorfully decorated motel. There were chairs and tables outside each room, a quaint spot to enjoy watching the sky turn from dark to light in the early morning.

Only 1 parking spot is available for each room. Check-in is at 3pm and check-out is at 11am the next day. We managed to have ours extended until 12pm and they were very lenient about it. There is no continental breakfast but you could enjoy authentic Brazilian food right next door at Cafe Brasil at an affordable price. The night we stayed, there was no need for air-conditioning because it was pretty chilly outside. Next morning, you are guaranteed to wake up to song birds chirping and singing outside your window. Felt like I was in another country altogether.

Great staff, everyone from the front desk to the bellhop was very friendly and helpful. I was able to get 2 adjoining rooms, which gave us extra room to spend together. Great location on IT with upscale shopping nearby. Short cab ride to many places. Would definitely stay here again.

What a lovely Motel, situated fantastically right near the metro link and bus stop for all the places you want to visit, Los Angeles including  Venice beach areas, guys polite and helpful. The breakfast was also lovely and the made to order omelette was a special touch.

Our recent return visit toVilla Brasil Motel for a week's stay was as wonderful as the first visit 2 years ago. Beautifully appointed and comfortable rooms and a great location to excellent local restaurants. Thanks Villa Brasil Motel again for being wonderful hosts.

My friends and I stayed here a few months back and although we liked the decor and the price, we didn't like how we had all eyes on us the entire time we stayed here.. We were bringing a small cooler for our sodas into the room and the owners of the motel just kept staring at us. Later in the evening we came back from the beach and they called me and made sure I wasn't having a party.. Telling me this is a family place. Really? (Keep in mind there was only 3 of us) I understand the concern but don't just assume things. I found it very rude and insulting if I wanted to be hovered over I would've stayed at my parents house. We came for a weekend getaway not a place we paid to be babysat

I loved this place, stayed here a week. Very cozy, dog friendly and beautiful flowers all around. Free WiFi. And they have a great restaurant right there.

Down the street there's a great Indian food place and market. I recommend to anyone waiting for a new apartment to stay there a while instead of staying with friends. Private, safe and comfortable.
The owners were really cool too.
