Last year we stayed at Elaine's Hollywood Bed and Breakfast for 2 nights. Los Angeles was our last final stop after 4.5 months of the round the world trip. On arrival there was no one there, so we called the number that was left on the door. A lady who was taking care of the place during Elaine's absence finally... More

We stayed in the "pink" room which was most suited to our family of three. Very cosy. In a good location. Next to shops and public transport.You can walk to Hollywood Blvd. Elaine was so thoughtful, helpful and provides good suggestions to her guests for sightseeing, etc.

It was a shame to read an unhappy review. My 2 reviews are genuine. Excellent stays both times. Even Elaine needs a holiday sometimes so a shame when you cannot rely on others to keep same standards.

I often visit the LA area for both business and pleasure. Elaine's B&B is perfectly located, quiet, friendly and comfortable. Breakfast consists of all my favorite things, great coffee, fresh berries, baked goods and granola. Thanks Elaine, I'm so lucky to have found you.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
