Palihotel is a great Melrose Ave boutique hotel. I mean, the experience you have at almost anyplace is all about your expectation, right? . Expect funky -- with a nice bed and nice linen and a fine bathroom with a great shower and a funky street -- and you will love it!

We enjoyed our stay in this small hotel with its character décor . Our room upstairs with a balcony over the road was an adequate size, comfortable bed, quality linen, aircon, and the bathroom was good. However there was no privacy from the road without pulling the blinds over the doors fully down. Day time privacy screens would be a... More

I stayed here with my partner for a couple of days. Generally I liked the place, with it's funky curtain-and-wood decor and quirky embellishments. The room we had - a 'balcony' room - was very small and annoyingly there was just nowhere to put things (we were travelling with suitcases and seriously, there was just no space for them). Bed...

If you like hip boutique hotels with a groovy interiour you will like this place. Plus it is perfect if you are looking for a place to stay in West Hollywood. The front staff was very helpful in finding restaurants, bars, shopping, etc. Unfortunately the rooms do not provide in-room safes (but you can desposit your valuables with the front... More

If you want to be in the West Hollywood/Melrose location you cannot beat the location of Palihotel. Otherwise, Palihotel is lacking. Connor at the front desk was the best part of the hotel experience for us. He was nice, friendly, and helpful. Otherwise the service was so-so to really bad. The girl in the restaurant at breakfast was absolutely terrible... More

Sure, there are plenty of fancy hotels not too far away, but the location of Palihotel was great. It had easy access to the wonderful Melrose shops and restaurants. It was definitely kind of dark and had funky decor, but it was clean and comfortable. The underground parking was also very convenient. Our room was on the ground floor facing... More

Simple, understated eye-candy and amusement, thanks to a creative use of flea market finds. Cozy rooms maintain the same flavour. Comfy beds. Friendly staff. Great in-house restaurant as well as popular eateries nearby. Good location. Reasonably priced. Definitely recommended.

This hotel was close to everything. Plus the staff was friendly and accommodating. You must try the apricot scones for breakfast. Room and bathroom was squeaky clean.
