This was a craaazy hotel. if you can get a cheap deal then i have no hesitation in recommending it. i would think twice about paying full price. On the plus side: - the hotel staff were absolutely adorable and bent over backwards to help us out! they even gave us bags of candy and bottled water to take up... More

I just went to Los Angeles with three friends and we booked two rooms at the HHH through Expedia, based on reviews we had read on here and because we weren't willing to spend an arm and a leg on a room. When we arrived, it was a bit confusing to know where to park, but it turns out there... More

Okay, first of all you must realize that this property used to be an old apartment building and there are still people who live there (they have rent controlled apartments). The hotel people cannot spend money doing major renovations because they have actual tenants living there. I imagine whenever the tenants finally vacate, they will do massive renovations which will... More

We had stayed at the Magic Castle Hotel previously and loved it, which was unavailable but the sister hotel, Hollywood Hills was available. So we booked it, having had such a positive experience at the Castle. We arrived after a 12 hour car trip in the dark and were quite surprised when we walked in and smelled the room. It... More

The location is the only good thing about this hotel. The outside of the hotel is in a terrible condition - like old, abandoned, dirty appartment building. The room was really big, with the kitchenette, but it smelled of gas terribly . Most probably there was a gas leak from the stove. The bed and the bathroom seemed very clean,... More

I recently stayed at this hotel, and chose it because the photos posted on the hotels website were amazing, and the prices seemed quite reasonable for the area. Let me just say that the photos are not a good representation of what the actual hotel looks like. When my friend and I were driving up the hill to the place,... More

I found this hotel at a discounted price on Travelocity. We paid $110 a night - which seems like a lot, but in Hollywood, it really isn't. I had a hard time finding a hotel in Hollywood for under $150 that didn't look scary. The Hollywood Hills Hotel is truly a unique find. We talked to the owner a bit... More

I love the location! It's only a couple blocks from the Hollywood Blvd and Walk of Fame and other tourist spots. The hotel staff was very nice. I asked for 2 sets of toilettries, and the staff brought 6 sets and more! I’d say 2 things though: 1) if you are going to rely on their shuttle service between Magic... More

I always use tripadvisor when deciding which hotel to stay in and 99% of the time it works quite well. I just got back from staying one night at the Hollywood Hills Hotel and was immensely disappointed. The only reason this hotel deserves 1 star is because of the friendly staff. When I first walked into the room I was... More

The Good: View, Staff, Location The Bad: A little run down Over All: If you like people who will go the extra mile to make sure your stay will be your best experience in Los Angeles, then this place is for you. I highly recomend it!
