A charming old house that is quite and peaceful. A great place to relax or explore Hollywood. Everything is close by and Dougal is a great host. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend staying here.

We had a fantastic stay at the hollywood pensione in LA. It was a small place, nice and quiet, and Dougal was a really friendly host, who'd give us tips whenever we needed them. He prepared fresh muffins and delicious fruit every morning. The rooms a clean and nicely done up. There's a kitchen you can use and it's 3... More

Fantastic hidden gem in a peaceful location, however Hollywood Blvd is literally on the doorstep. Facilities were all great, bed was comfortable and the freshly baked cakes and fruit for breakfast made the stay perfect. Dougald is the perfect host and would like to say thanks for making our stay wonderful. Will definitely return here if we make it to... More

We came here last October for our honeymoon. I proposed here so it only seemed right to return. We only stayed for 3 days / 2 nights. Nothing had changed. We stayed in the same room which was nice. The location is superb. We went to the local Oaks Gourmet restaurant which is highly recommended. It's only about 10 minutes... More

My wife and I arrived in Hollywood on Sunday, February 9. We were visiting our son who has been undergoing chemotherapy. Since lodging in Hollywood can be a shot in the dark we had absolutely no clue where to stay. We checked and priced many of the local chain hotels which were no bargain. I found the pensione online and... More

Very nice and reasonably priced B&B with a decent sized bedroom and bathroom and use of communal living room and kitchen. Super friendly owner who struck a good balance between being helpful and giving you your privacy. Great location to discover the hip/cool Los Feliz and surrounding areas. No hesitation at all in recommending Hollywood for a long weekend stay.

Hollywood Pensione was our first stop on our trip up the coast. After a long flight we were really happy to spend two nights at such a wonderful b&b. There are several restaurants close by. The metro around the corner took us downtown in less than 20 minutes (and straight to Universal Studios in 10 minutes). Our room was lovely.... More

We found this place to be utterly charming – perfectly situated in LA for access to anywhere, and particularly convenient to the wonderful West Hollywood, Los Feliz & Silverlake areas. Free parking, and you can even walk – yes, walk – to several restaurant options and even to Griffin Park. Doughal is a pleasant, friendly host (we were out a... More
