We stayed for six days, and it was the best lodging experience we have had in many years. The innkeeper, Sylvester, is elegant, attentive, and laid back - all at the same time. The inn is fantastic, the garden is shabby-chic, and it is located in absolutely the best place for easy access to all LA neighborhoods. The breakfasts are... More

Just a perfect stay. Rooms are big and super well ornated in 1920's style. It's in a very peacefull atmosphere, but just 2 blocks away you can discover movie theaters, restaurents and exquisite Deli's! Breakfast is really generous and amazing, and Silvester will welcome you in a delicious way! No doubt about it : GO!

Located just at the western end of the Hollywood Blvd., the bed and breakfast is in a house with lots old but neat furnishings, tons of old and new books, statues, and endearing paraphnelia that all adds to the atmosphere. The hearty and delicious breafast is served by the very friendly and accommodating Mr. Sylvester who strived to cater to... More

We spent a week at the Secret Garden and couldn't be happier. Sylvester was hospitable and his breakfasts are to die for, with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and more than enough to eat (we went without lunch on the strength of these breakfasts). The house itself is charming, loaded with antiques, a little funky but very inviting. We... More

We arrived at the Secret Garden, parked at the front and walked to the car entrance, this made it much easier to find with all the fast moving traffic in the Hollywood Boulevard area. It is best to telephone on arrival and then Sylvester will be there to welcome you and what a wonderful welcome! On arrival we were shown... More

Our family really liked this place with antique furniture and lots of interesting art. Very friendly staff, big breakfast. Only drawback is that it can be a bit tricky to find your way the first time, and the GPS tried to fool us. The adress is Selma Av, but the entrance to the parking area is a very sharp right... More

We read some recent reviews & decided to make our own comments. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Secret Garden B&B in LA! We have stayed in LA so many times over the years even stayed in some rather nice/expensive rooms in some of the best known hotels in LA, but never really enjoyed our previous LA trips. In... More

I first time stayed at the Secret Garden Bed and Breakfast 10 years ago, Easter 2002 to be exact, when Raymond Bilbool still hosted the BnB. Since then I (with family and friends) have stayed there at least 10 times over the years. Many of the reviews posted are - I must admit - plain ridiculous. The Secret Garden Bed... More

Some of these reviews are just plain ridiculous. The Secret Garden Bed and Breakfast is an excellent place to stay if you're in need of quality service and hospitality in Hollywood. The location is amazing! Sunset and Vine is right in the middle of Hollywood, and surrounded by so many sights and attractions. I stayed last week on a business... More
