About Paula Samuel

My name is Yonatan Elkayam. As an Artist, Entrepreneur, and a resident of Downtown Los Angeles for over 7 years I have seen the growth and have been part of it. My love for this fast paced city grows each day as I uncover new places to eat, and wonderful venues for night time activities. Los Angeles is the best city in the world for live music these days, and without a doubt Downtown is the heartbeat of it all. Never a dull moment and always inspiring, you'll find me all over this centralized area, usually walking at all hours of the day and night. I was born and raised in this city, and feel blessed to call Downtown my home.

Paula Samuel purchased this condo in 2012

Why Paula Samuel chose Downtown

There are few locations that compare to this one. The quality of restaurants, bars, and night clubs in the immediate vicinity are unparalleled. While at the same time if it's privacy that you seek, the building is quiet and clean. With history and classic style this apartment was a no brainier as an investment. However, my goal was to create a modern luxurious space within the backdrop of history, culture and style.

What makes this condo unique

Aside from the location and accessibility, the building provides a 24 hour door man, making safety a top priority. Just downstairs you will find shopping, local eateries, art galleries and museums as well as a local cafe that delivers food to your doorstep 24 hours a day. With a wonderful roof that gives you a stunning 360 degree view of the city, this location truly has it all. Furthermore, the LA metro system is walking distance, opening up quick and easy direct routes to Hollywood, Pasadena, Long Beach and West LA. There is virtually nothing out of reach from this location.

Great Apartment tough neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

This is a great apartment and a good value for DTLA. The manager Paula is great. As a single woman I was not sure if the neighborhood was a place that I should be staying. After a few days I got used to the homeless and learned not to make eye contact with the street people. Anyone renting it should be aware of the skid row atmosphere. The location is great for walking to great restaurants, whole foods, and the Los Angeles Athletic club.

I was here for six weeks, this is a very a comfortable condo with a bed that was hard to leave in the morning! Had everything I needed to do any cooking, and plenty of places in the neighborhood to pick up food. Very convenient location. Great place to be in downtown LA !

The apartment is thoughtfully appointed for a long stay. Clean and well-maintained. Highly recommended. There's AC and full sized washer and drier, comfortable bed and furnitures. The apartment manager and owner respond quickly to enquiries.

Downtown Los Angeles is great. Lots of wonderful affordable restaurants and activities for whatever floats your boat. Definitely a return is in order.

Best of the three condos I've stayed in downtown.

  • 5 of 5

This was the best property, the best interior, the best location, and the best property manager of three VRBO condos that I've stayed in downtown for work. The interior smells nice, is comfortable, and has a TV in the bedroom as well as the main area. The location is the downtowniest part of downtown, with the most restaurants and nightspots and breakfast spots, I would recommend the Nickel Diner and Botega Louie. Paula is nice, flexible, fair, and responsive.

Overall the best property in all categories.

We rented this corner unit on the 11th floor of this gorgeous 1911 centrally located downtown LA building for my mother when she was visiting. The unit is lovely—nicely appointed, quiet, comfortable, airy. It is set up for visitors and the seven oversize windows let in plenty of natural light. My mother loved it. And Paula Samuel, the manager, is charming, conscientious, and a pleasure to deal with.
