This B&B is in a delightful neighborhood of LA, close to some very nice restaurants and shopping, but too far to walk to Hollywood! Bob and Ahuva are wonderful hosts, and they put on a fabulous breakfast made to order. I stayed in the Garden Terrace room which has its own balcony. I would definitely stay here again. I highly...

We are in the cottage, at the back of the property. The beds among the most comfortable ever. How it's decorated... beautiful rugs, thoughtful details, every amenity... I'm loving this place more each day. Bob and Ahuva couldn't be more accommodating. The location couldn't be better- walking distance to the Farmer's Market, The Grove, great little boutiques, restaurants. Lots of... More

We spent three nights here and it was wonderful! The room was spacious and charming. We enjoyed our breakfast of fresh, organic fruits, breads and eggs, on the terrace off our room. Although we were in the heart of lively LA, the Garden Cottage felt like a peaceful oasis away from the hustle and bustle. The cottage is surrounded with... More

Staying at the Garden Cottage was certainly one of the highlights of our trip to LA. Bob and Ahuva were extremely friendly and did all they could to make us comfortable - and the breakfast was amazing! They helped us to navigate the city and recommended places to see, things to do, and restaurants. If we were to return to... More

This super little B and B certainly earns its five start rating. We stayed for three nights and loved it. Everything about it is generous, from the large comfortable beds, to the well stocked kitchen where you can make hot drinks at any time or make use of the crockery to put a meal together if you don't feel like...

I highly recommend the Garden Cottage; it’s a delightful and charming place. Our hosts, Bob and Ahuva, welcomed us with a bottle of wine for my husband’s birthday. After our enchanted two night stay, a grand organic breakfast (eggs were perfect), and stimulating and humorous conversation with Bob and Ahuva I consider them our friends. See you two next time,...

As many of the reviews attest, the Garden Cottage is a first rate B&B. Rooms are large, well maintained, and welcoming (as are the hosts). Breakfast will be customized for your taste, but is always delicious. And the location is hard to beat. There are many top tier restaurants just blocks away on 3rd street (easy walk), a nearby laundramat... More

As soon as you step foot into this lovely B&B, you'll instantly realize why it is the #1 B&B in LA. It is close to everything, is very comfortable, and the owners bend over backwards to make sure their guests are satisfied. We stayed in the cottage. It was serene and well-equipped with pleasant furnishings - full kitchen was a... More

With great breakfast ...all organic.. prepared by host, free and fast WIFI and obviously... More

We stayed for a week and the place was spotless every day. We stayed upstairs in a room with a balcony that allowed us to step outside in the evenings and mornings. This is a very quiet neighborhood and we slept with the sliding door open each night. I felt safe walking the streets to the market or the museum.... More
