My new husband and I have stayed at this cute and quirky hotel twice - 1 night in May 2015, and 2 nights in August 2015. Both stays were pleasant! Check in/check out is a breeze, the kind staff is always happy to assist, and the decor/feel of the hotel is just awesome! Great indie music playing in the lobby... More

Nice hotel in good area, between grunge Melrose and hip Melrose. Sensational italian restaurant Osteria Mozza down the road. Walking distance (for good walkers) of Melrose Place and also The Grove shopping area. Stayed in suite which is a large and pleasant room. Staff friendly, though no maps of area available…

This is a boutique, somewhat quirky hotel. Rooms were clean, comfortable as were the amenities. Staff were incredibly helpful from organising pick up at LAX to booking restaurants and helping with the local transport. Only thing I struggled with was no phone in the room and the only reason this was an issue is the temperature was centralised and could... More

This is a modern place. Good vibe and very good located on Melrose Street. The aptos are good, well decorated and there is a mini bar and a sofa. They rent bikes and the restaurant is very good. Great choice for a good rate.

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.

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!
