Pool is very clean although did not use, rained a bit and too busy sight seeing. Room 19, great, balcony, very comfy beds, clean, quiet, defo recommend, Hollywood is a great place to stay... More

Spent 3 nights here and the closeness to the 101 proved great. I think our room was upgraded as it had more facilities than we expected with a full kitchen instead of a kitchenette. Breakfast in the House of Tacos was unique with a few spicy options although the guy running breakfast was not keeping up with lots of stuff... More

What others have written pretty much describes it. We had a downstairs room with wood floors, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and hair dryer. The towels were a bit scratchy and the were no facial tissues, but there was adequate toilet paper. There was a wall mirrored cabinet in the bathroom so one could put away a few toiletries. Still we... More

after reading reviews in here, I thought this hotel wasn't going to be so bad. I was wrong. See, I'm not sure if these people reviewing know what you should expect from a hotel. This was more of a hostel. The only difference was that you had a bathroom. Granted that the bathroom was poor lighting, old rags as towels,... More

We stayed here for a few nights this past summer. I loved the looks of it from the photos! While it's not super close to the main attractions of Hollywood by foot, it's super-close by car. You can walk it no problem, but it's a bit of a hike. So I wouldn't recommend walking it with a big family or... More

Booked this lovely place a good few years ago (Could only put this year on selection but it was a while ago but it doesn't matter as my friend went back and not much has changed at all) as we were coming from the UK and wanted to experience a more local historical vibe and after researching the area found...

When I first got here, I was a little nervous because of the dodgy rough-looking area and the reception's need for a doorbell/ lock. It's not so bad though, and it's just a 10 minute walk from the Hollywood walk of fame and main strip. There are plenty of restaurants nearby (particularly Thai food) and a great Mexican place practically... More

Stayed here with 5 of us after flying in from Australia. The hotel is modest, but clean and in a great location. A pretty easy walk to the Walk of Fame and the other attractions along Hollywood Boulevard. The included breakfast was at a Mexican place next door and was great. Certainly a bit different to the usual breakfasts available... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
