NASTY PLACE *BEDBUGS,ROACHES, BAD LANDLORDS!* please don't move here, it will be the biggest mistake! I think this place should be shut down! The building was from the 1920s with alot of history behind it but the two air heads working… Full Review ▶

This place is a serious nightmare; the management is a joke; the security is a even bigger joke. This place is a historical building with a vast history of hollywood and fame. To be left with the stench of trash and… Full Review ▶

First off this is the worst place to live, Eduardo the manager is the biggest liar. He will never fix anything wrong in your apartment. You will never get a parking space in the back of the apartment. You will constantly… Full Review ▶

We have been here for 3.5 years. We have enjoyed our single unit all the while. Now happily moving to a one bedroom in the building. Never a problem with the management or pests. We have been good tenants and treated… Full Review ▶

Absolute worst, they never answer the phone or get back to you. Two young people work the office and are unprofessional and unreliable and LIE about everything. There are roaches and most of all BEDBUGS, I got my last month refunded… Full Review ▶

Don't be fooled. It may look nice and quiet but the truth is that there have been 6 break ins. The building has fake cameras but they don't record. The manager lies and says that nothing has happened. Check with Rampart… Full Review ▶

Aside from it's grand location, being minutes from the heart of downtown, Park Wilshire has been a home away from home. Hailing from the East Coast, I settled in here right away. The new management regime of Anna and Eduardo has… Full Review ▶

This community was the 1st and only one I checked out in October. I immediately fell in love with the Old Hollywood Era style of the building itself. The decor was/is great, thus, I became a resident December '08. The staff… Full Review ▶

I've lived here since June 2008. I'm from L.A. so I understand the busy streets and the sirens. Try finding any place in L.A. without that for the same price. Ok, so first off, moving in, there was a funny smell,… Full Review ▶

Whatever you do, do NOT rent at the Park Wilshire Apartments. Take it from me, I had to learn the hard way. Originally, I was drawn to the place because I like historic buildings, but this place is pre-historic! There is… Full Review ▶

This place is a dump. I can't stand living here anymore. There's a roach problem, constantly having plumbing issues (no hot water/clogged sink/sink spewing disguisting water from the pipes), and the noise is unbearable. Laundry room is crap (some dryers don't… Full Review ▶

The noise is unbearable. I'm not talking about 'city-noise', I'm talking about building noise. Poor insulation and lack of respect for "quiet hours". Additionally, MacArthur park is host to an endless parade of carnivals, concerts, and film producions which contributes to… Full Review ▶

There are small charms to this 1920s building. The crown molding, the park, etc. But that's it. The tenants received notice this evening that in 48 hours our water will be shut off between 10 and 4. Fair enough. Except the… Full Review ▶

I moved in on April 1. They had just done some porcelain work, so the whole place smelled toxic. As the nasty chemical smell disappeared, it was replaced with a nasty, overpowering musty odor. They cleaned the carpet, replaced old pipes,… Full Review ▶

New management IS horrible. But old management was equally as horrendous. Azar and Stephanie were lazy, condescending moody slugs who accomplished nothing. Maybe our new dictator Phillip will at least fix the elevators? Lets hope for the best. This building is… Full Review ▶
