If you're looking to explore LA this hotel is in the perfect location, Hollywood Bvld is within walking distance (10 mins) and really good central location to get around. Really good price for a clean, spacious, modern room with a massive bed! The hotel is kept very clean and is within walking distance of restaurants and an ihop for breakfast.... More

For the price this is a great budget option for seeing Los Angeles. The rooms are clean and spacious considering the location. The staff are friendly and helpful if you want to book Tours etc. The breakfast is a bit bland but again, for the price you can't complain.

This motel seems to be located in a rather seedy part of town. We are two female travellers (mother and daughter), and didn't feel very safe here. The reception staff during the day were friendly enough - but beware the night staff, especially a man who goes by the name of 'Rana'. He was very uncooperative and threatening when we... More

We are sorry but our hotel is a limited service hotel. We do not have staff to assist with baggage at 4 am in the morning. Further, the employee disagrees with your statement and insists that he was not threatening at any time. Thank you More

We were a group of 4 travellers from Poland who stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Although the hotel seemed a bit pricey to us, we knew we wouldn't find any cheaper accommodation right in the heart of LA. And the location was terrific! The rooms were clean and we were positively surprised by waffle maker in the breakfast... More

If your searching for just your basic clean room in the center of Hollywood, then this is a good place. I did not have any problems at all, the desk clerk was nice and there is a grocery store across the street. The only problem was traffic congestion due to roadwork on Sunset. ..

The Saharan is a good option for budget travellers. It is in a good location, the staff is friendly, it is clean and beds were comfortable. There was a small fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and flat screen TV with lots of channels, as well as free on-demand TV. There was a phone and an A/C. The A/C worked very well, but... More
