My wife and I had the pleasure to stay at the Rose Hotel last month. It still remains one of the highlights of our trip. We had such an enjoyable time in this area of Cali. The place is in a perfect location close to the boardwalk and the beach. A number of great restaurants and bars are within walkin... More

The hotel has a perfect location at a reasonable price. But you will probably be sharing a shower, and toilet. And the walls are thin. Parking isn't good. You will probably have to pay during the daytime, and you may have trouble parking at night. We Waite outside for a spot, and stood in it while we got the car.... More

We unfortunately only had one night at The Rose following a long flight from London and a connecting flight the next morning to Maui. However, the co-owner Doug was quick to make us feel at home, after giving us the tour, he pointed us in the direction of a few good restaurants. The bed was so comfortable, the room cosy... More

I stayed at The Rose in December 14 and absolutely loved it. Its beautifully designed with a beach side feel, in pale blues and whites, stripes that fit with the sunlight that shines through the slated blinds, behind which you can see the ocean and the Venice life. We were staying in the family room which was huge and the... More

Lovely hotel which has been converted from a hostel. Surfingl/sea themed- calico and pale blues everywhere.Natural wood communal table in lobby area.Spotlessly clean. Gave a very relaxed and clean feel to the whole place. Tea and coffee always available plus a delicious complimentary croissant for breakfast. Steps away from the boardwalk and beach-although it rained and rained for the 2... More

Visiting Los Angeles we decided to say away from the normal large hotels and opt for a really smart boutique hotel in Venice Beach/ Santa Monica. Really exceeded all our expectations fantastic service, very classy rooms and very laid back, staff could not be more helpful, just ideal. Steps away from the famous boardwalk and many restaurants which serve this... More

Over Christmas 2014 I travelled the Californian coast with my parents from San Francisco, through Carmel - Santa Barbara - and finally Venice Beach... The Rose Hotel was paradise. The hotel itself is a stones throw away from the surf and sand, and fit for a family (big or small); pleasure seekers wanting a beach side retreat or individuals on... More

An über cool beachy surfy dude place, with incredibly comfy beds and so clean you can eat your fish taco from the truck up the road on the floor. Staff super friendly and laid back. Its minimal and no frills but its a great respite from the vibe of the front of the venice beach. I would highly recommend staying... More

Laid back, appropriately coastal and very awesome beach Hotel. The great location itself is enough of a reason to stay, but it was the personable, thoughtful service and hospitality of the owners and staff that makes this place special. Simple, pared-back rooms give a real sense of spaciousness and calm. All rooms including the shared bathrooms were immaculate. The free... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
