Our second stay at the Hollywood Hills Hotel was a better experience than the first one. The only issue we had was addressed, as the room was a lot cleaner than the one we had in 2012. It had a fully equipped kitchenette, and a balcony offering a beautiful view of Los Angeles. The equipment is still dated, but it's... More

We loved our stay at this hotel. The room was nice, even if it a little old. What really made our stay great was the outstanding service. The front desk staff was very welcoming and friendly and remembered which room we were in when we went through the lobby again hours later (with a nearly full hotel). Free shuttle from... More

This hotel isn't so much about the actual rooms - it's about the property. First off, you check-in at the Magic Castle, and your Continental Breakfast is at the Castle lobby/pool area - wonderful. The food offerings, juice, etc. are okay, but eating by the pool is great. The Castle also provides free snacks/candy and soda 24/7, and we used... More

Had an excellent stay at the Hollywood Hills Hotel (part of the Magic Castle Hotel). Nick, Nick D, Gretchen and the girls probably provided us with the best customer service we have ever experienced at an individual hotel. The Hollywood Hills itself was up the hill with a lovely little pool and big rooms – although they could possibly need... More

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
