I have now had the pleasure of three different stays at Cinema Suites. Every room has been very clean with a full bathroom. The beds are all incredibly comfortable. The housekeeper makes a fantastic hot breakfast and the other guest at the breakfast table are from all over the world. Just across the street is a wonderful pub with great... More

We stayed only the one night and would have loved to have stayed longer. We stayed in the Casablanca room which has the benefit of being on the ground floor. The room was very spacious and comfortable. There is a bathroom with toilet and shower right next door which belongs exclusively to that room. The owners give you keys so... More

We can always arrange to have an "extra bathroom" for you here at Cinema Suites. If the Guest House had not been available we invite our guests to use our own personal bathroom including the shower facilities. Best Regards, Dianne More

We really enjoyed our stay here. It's nice and close to everything. Just a few minutes from Beverly Hills and Hollywood. It took us less than 30 mins to get to Burbank, and the same to Santa Monica. The room was tidy and clean. We were served delicious eggs and coffee every morning by the lovely housekeeper. Would definitely recommend... More

If you're going to Hollywood, this is a great place to stay. Clean, comfortable, and affordable, with a private bathroom with shower/bath and a tasty breakfast in the morning. There is a 7-Eleven and a Starbucks within walking distance. There are four rooms to choose from, each a different size at a different price, so you can choose the one... More

Thanks so much for your great review Nate B! I have a clarification about room sizes and bathtub availability: Nate B stated, “There are four rooms to choose from, each a different size at a different price…” Actually we have five rooms to choose from, with two sizes: four large rooms and 1 small room (where Nate B stayed). We... More

It's a real house you know. It is on a quite street with 7 Eleven and Sturbucks in walking distance. But as far I did see, it is not easy to access to city center if you don't have a car. But the parking is free on the steet. And it is not easy to find a hotel with an... More

Thanks to Zeynepthegezgin for her largely good review. And, thanks so much for the 4 Star rating! (TripAdvisor calls it a 4 “Bubble” rating.) I have three little clarifications regarding things she said, and one comment about check-in times, then I’ll talk about the ventilation in the house. “It is on a quite street …” I think the translation she...

The entire main house smells musty, and the darkened living room/sitting room is crammed with art and collectibles that haven't been dusted in years. We stayed in the guest house in the back, also musty. Our toilet flusher broke, but the owner's son fixed it quickly. Breakfast was good, but the milk was sour. The cook apologized profusely the next... More

“The… main house smells musty…” The furniture and carpets are not old, and they are clean. You can see pictures of the dining room and living room on our website. I think what is happening is that we regularly prepare ten breakfasts for guests, the kitchen is also used for our family’s lunch and dinner, and guests have access to... More

Philip (the owner's son?) was helpful & the housekeeper friendly but, compared to the welcome we've had in other b&bs, the place is unwelcoming. Our room was shabby. The sitting room was in use by the owners the first evening & in darkness the second which meant we felt obliged to sit in our room which was far from comfortable.... More

“Philip (the owner's son?) was helpful & the housekeeper friendly…” We want people to be able to understand “who’s who” at Cinema Suites. Philip was an assistant who worked here last summer. Except for the assistance we received from Philip last summer, Cinema Suites has been run by three people for the last 3 ½ years: myself, Dianne Bennett, Michael... More

We've booked a stay here for 3 nights to visit LA. Upon arriving we had to find a nearby parking spot on the street (free from 8pm-8am). They have no parking of their own (despite what they claim). The street is extremely busy so you'll have to drive around the block several times to find a spot. The building looks... More
