It's only worth it if you stay in the rooms that start in the 400s and 500s because it's looking over the city and closer to the pool. I stayed on the first level room #203. Only a view of the parking and with binoculars I might see a bit of the city. Nice little balcony with tables and cchairs.... More

We stayed here as it was within 5 minutes walking distance of the walk of fame etc. So no need to use the car everyday. Our room was basic but clean and very spacious with a kitchen area. Pool towels provided too. The balcony was large, if a little tired. The pool was lovely, clean and gated and very deep... More

Great views, wonderful staff and service, especially the people that shuttle you to the Magic Castle! The free snacks are amazing, first class! Love staying here as it means I get entrance to the historic Castle! :)

We stayed here a couple of nights recently. It is quite an unsual and quirky set up. If you are looking for somewhere fairly central and reasonable to stay and are fairly flexible (and physically fit) this place is absolutely fine. All interactions with staff (check in, check out, breakfast, queries) take place at the Magic Castle Hotel which is... More

This is my 4th time staying here so its safe to say I like it. I don't know that its for everyone though, its a little quirky. There is no elevator, we actually had to walk across the 2nd floor roof (handrails) to get to our 3rd floor room. I don't mind at all though, I actually prefer the uniqueness... More

Stayed at Hollywood Hills hotel & Apts again - lovely pool and easy to get around but a couple of strange things happened this time. My daughter booked three nights from UK but we were unable to book the further two nights we wanted, so we had three nights in one room and two nights in another room that I... More

The hotel is situated in Hollywood with great views of Hollywood Hills. Its a short walk to Hollywood Blvd. Ok the rooms/suits could use a renovation but kitchenette with huge fridge, microwave and all you need for a couple of days is given. The service was great, there is a car driving you to your room on the hill and... More

Situated on top of a hill, with property shared with Yamashiro restaurant, the hotel affords great views of Hollywood and surrounding L.A. Its new pool is lovely, and it was handy having a full-size refrigerator in the unit. Plus I was attending a wedding at Yamashiro, which meant the venue was literally only a flight of stairs away -- so... More

Our second stay with Magic Castle Hotel (first at the Hollywood Hills Hotel because there was no availability at the Hotel for a week stay even 3 months ahead), they are very popular so I suggest that you make your reservation a long time before. Please note that I will make my review taking into account the room rate which... More
