This is my home away from home in Los Angeles, the staff are super friendly and the rooms, though a little old and worn, have everything you need, and an amazing view!! great value for the money and actual walking distance from everything in Hollywood. A hidden gem!

I was very nervous after reading other reviews, but really wanted Hollywood area lodging somewhat removed from the street noise. The Hollywood Hills turned out to be a delightful discovery. Yes, it is an older structure, and has some dingy aspects. But our room (504) was clean and comfortable. Pros: Absolutely amazing views. Staff are incredibly responsive, friendly, helpful. Great...

We stayed at the Hollywood Hills Hotel and Apartments for 3 nights. We arrived a few hours early to see if we could leave our luggage and car. They were very gracious and called housekeeping to have our room cleaned next. We were given complimentary drinks while we waited poolside at the Magic Castle hotel. A few minutes later we... More

Positives: Plentiful views and pleasing staff Negatives: Everything else Downright uninhabitable rooms. Parking is odd. Grounds are dirty and rooms are in desperate need of a complete remodel. Long, scary, dark hallways. We felt so uncomfortable, we checked out and left. Skip it.

Maybe these people live in a refugee camp or something. The Hollywood Hills Hotel is a rundown apartment building that is dirty and highly inconvenient to stay at. NOT recommended. There are many better choices in the Hollywood area.

My daughter and I recently stayed at the Hollywood Hills Hotel - which is part of Magic Castle Hotel. The rooms are actually a short drive up a steep hill... I think they are much less expensive than those at the Magic Castle. The room was huge...actually it was two rooms. A large bedroom with an attached jacuzzi-style tub with... More

We had a great stay. The hotel is located on a hill in Hollywood with beautiful views. A former apartment complex, there was plenty of room in our suite, complete with a kichenette. And it was clean and recently renovated, absolutely no issues here! Lovely pool and outstanding staff, friendly and helpful. Snacks, drinks, movies all complimentary and are delivered... More

I was a bit confused over its alternative name - "The Magic Castle Hotel." Indeed, the main street-level hotel is immediately adjacent to that famous dinner club. However, the other property is situated about a 10 min walk up a steep hill. I stayed two nights in a room in this upper level. My room was very quiet, being away... More

I think I have visited this hotel 7 times in the past 8 years, and I can’t wait to return for another visit. I sat on the balcony of my suite one night pondering exactly what makes it so special and I came up with a few things: 1. The views – The views from the city view rooms are... More

My girlfriend and I found this place on line and stayed there last week end for two nights. Our room was in the Hollywood Hills Hotel up the hill from the Magic Castle Hotel, where registration and checkout are completed. The property was a bit dated, but very clean and well kept with a beautiful very clean pool and was... More
