Please bypass this guest review as she is a bit strange, super picky and has some issues. Here are the facts: The building is not older at all, it's less than 10 years old. There are two small water stains in one of the public hallways nowhere near the apartment. There is no smell whatsoever in the apartment, let alone of a cat. There has never been a cat present, let alone a "male unneutered one". As of course, you can see by the other reviews which would have stated the same! Three of us made a trip to check it out during the day, we layed on the floor and smelled the carpet--nothing. We DID notice, however, that the guest was smoking on the balcony and had a special breathing apparatus set up the bedroom. Both of which suggest that the guest may have some prior breathing issue or distortion of smell. Our apartment faces the quiet part (not the tourist section) of Hollywood Blvd. IF you are a light sleeper, you can hear some mild traffic noise in the distance. Most guests are not bothered by it at all as it's just like a normal hotel in a tourist area, and it's on the 5th floor (with elevator). Regarding her final comment, this just shows how ridiculous the guest is: Every parking garage in CA is mandated by law to have the sign that says "this building may use chemicals which can cause cancer, etc". You will see this on EVERY large garage or building with a garage in CA. All in all, a bit of a loopy guest. If you could see the rest of her statements . . .
