This place is right in the heart of it all. It had a great little café. Staff was very friendly and the rooms were very clean. There are no phones in the room which is not a problem at all and internet worked great. Only negative was it was a little dark especially at night but I guess it added... More

A funky hotel that is well situated in LA, it is just a shame that the walls are paper thin. It is pretty bad when you can hear the person next door snoring... Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and the hotel was very comfortable and close to Hollywood, Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.

This is not a real hotel review as I only was at the Palihotel for 20 minutes while staying at another place in Los Angeles. At the end of a long walk on Melrose I found this hotel and thought it was a good place to ask for a cab. In most cases, the difference between a good and a... More

Palihotel is located in the Melrose district below West Hollywood. No doubt a great location. Yet there is no doubt this area does not include stellar accommodations. The Palihotel doesn't change that. I grew up in LA. This use to be some kind of hostel back in the day. Now the hipsters have tried to flip the place into their... More

The hotel is well located if you want to be quite near Hollywood. It is surprisingly small. The rooms are compact by US standards. There's a lovely restaurant attached to the hotel which did excellent breakfasts and has a charming balcony to try out the craft beers in the evening.

My husband and I just spent two nights in the 'Suite' at Palihotel while attending an event at the Improv and could not have been happier. Michael and Jasmine were friendly and efficient at the front desk and we made it quickly up to our room. There is only one suite in the hotel but it is well worth the... More

This is definitely the best hotel for its price. It is also located very well! The service is very good and the staff is very friendly! The restaurant of the hotel is one of the best ones in Santa Monica! Definitely stay in this hotel if you are planning to visit LA!

All the Pali properties - Palihouses and Palihotel - are homes away from home. I really enjoyed Palihotel's modern rustic decor and warm intimate atmosphere. It's a small-scaled, pared-down version of Palihouse (Santa Monica and West Hollywood), but it has everything I expected - friendly staff, good food (The Hart and The Hunter), comfortable bed, central location (surrounded by shops...
