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

We heard of this place thru a trip description on Tripadvisor and decided to go for it and reserved of the several rooms the Cottage in te garden: own kitchen with table, sitting area, bath & toilet and sleeping room, thus no interaction with other guests...perfect. 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

We just spent 4 nights with Ahuva and Bob. They are the perfect hosts. It was more like visiting family than being guests. (you can expect amazing breakfasts too!) We had the cottage. It is a very spacious 3 rooms with full kitchen. It was a great place to relax and return to after a day of walking. The location... More

Everything about this B and B is superb - from the accommodations to the couple who run it (Ahuva and Bob couldn't be more hospitable) and oh the breakfasts are incredible, just about anything you want. The guests I've met here during my 5 stays are truly a "cut above," some have become friends. I can recommend this place wholeheartedly.... More

My sister and I stayed at Ahuvas and Roberts delightful bed and breakfast. We found the garden cottage by simply searching for "beautiful garden cottages". As soon as we arrived we were greeted by warm hearts of Ahuva and Robert, and the fragrance of jasmine, honeysuckle, roses and every other brilliant flower so organically curated. The breakfast Ahuva prepares is... More

Garden Cottage B&B proved was an unexpected sanctuary. Friendly, eccentric hosts Bob and Ahuva made every effort to assure our comfort. Delightful breakfasts overshadow the trendy brunches located blocks away. Ambient fountains, potted succulents line the paths, birds joyfully splash, squirrels dashing across the roof of this hidden microcosm. We enjoyed returning each evening.
