seeing a strip club next door gave us a fright but there wasn't a drama at all. room was good with great a/c. bed was pretty uncomfortable but that was the only downside. brilliant location to everything as we didn't have a car. walking was a easy option and only a 5 min walk to the station if we needed...

This hotel is in a great location, literally a 5 minute walk from the Walk Of Fame & there are plenty of places to eat nearby. The strip club next door caused no problems, it wasn't seedy. On arriving & checking in at the hotel, traveling from London, England we were given a room up some stairs & overlooking the... More

First off, I have to say, despite the many complaints about staff here from other reviewers, I found the management to be sweet, helpful and very kind. The manager gave directions on how to find the top attractions easily, and when I had to leave before breakfast to catch an early plane back to New York, he gave me muffins... More

We arrived at the Saharan quite late but the reception was still manned. It’s on the main road (Sunset Boulevard), and can be a bit difficult to get into if you’re turning left into it, but coming from the airport, it was on our right so a lot easier. There is plenty of parking, though it is a little cramped.... More

The front desk man (I am not sure if he was in charge but he sure acted like it) , was very rude and not helpful at all. A taxi cab was blocking our only entrance as we arrived, I called the front desk to notify him and he RUDELY answered that it was "not his problem". Then we had... More

We chose to stay at the Saharan because of its central location on Sunset Boulevarde. We hoped that this location would mean proximity to great eating places but we ended up with a fast food meal as there seemed little else within even a long walk. The staff were indifferent to the point of hostility, we arrived in the early... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay. We are making improvements to our exterior with painting and landscaping. We have waffles and muffins for breakfast, our coffee is from Royal Cup, a major coffee vendor for hotels. We need to offer limited breakfast because we pass that saving on to our guests. Our hotel does not even charge... More

The location of this hotel is one of the best in the city. If you are looking for location, clean place to sleep, easy access to the main atractions of Los Angeles in a good budget this is the place. It is not luxury, but accommodate very well and walk distance to the walk of fame, Dolby theater, Chinese theater,... More

Stayed here for a night after landing at LAX. Good parking but can imagine it being a little tight to manoeuvre if the lot was full. Our room was decent but had an extremely strong chemical smell.. We left the window open whilst we went out to try and get rid of it. Saharan is a short walk from the... More

we recently stayed at this hotel, and it was great. I had previously reviewed other hotels as we where going to the house of blues for an event, and either they where too pricey or very far from the venue. We did not make any reservations just because we where not sure of which hotel to stay, as we were... More
