I can't say enough great things about the Magic Castle Hotel. My 3 best friends and I stayed one night to see a play nearby and we were overwhelmed by the friendly staff and the above and beyond extra services! Plus, it is just 2 blocks from the Chinese theater and all the bustle of Hollywood! When we arrived we... More

Where do I begin! This place is fabulous! Never have I encountered such fantastic customer service in a hotel. Staff went above and beyond with a smile on their face! Some of the fantastic things this hotel offers: free continental breakfasts, free laundry service, free hot apple cider in the evenings, free unlimited snacks at any time, free mint chocolates...

We (a family of 4) stayed here for 3 nights in December 2014. It was the first stop of our three week trip and what a start - the staff were amazingly friendly and helpful, couldn't do enough for us. Being our first stop we just assumed that this was customer service in America but they were definitely above and... More

The hotel is in a great location and the staff are amongst the friendliest I have ever met. They even offered free laundry service which I had never heard of before. A family arrived really early one morning at breakfast time and they were all offered breakfast. Such service deserves a mention

We stayed in The Magic Castle Hollywood August 2014 and we could not have been more pleased with our stay! It is situated just one block away from the Hollywood Boulevard as well as being close to Major tourist attractions such as Universal Studios, Beverly Hills and more. The staff are very friendly and very welcoming, and are always there... More

We stayed at Magic Castle December 2014 and although the room was old it was clean and comfortable. However, the facilities and staff were absolutely amazing, free snacks and soft drinks, help with everything from train travel to introducing us to uber. Also placed in the heat of Hollywood boulevard.

Met all our expectations based on previous great reviews! We stayed here for 5 nights. 5-10 min walk to metro station (cheap transport option). Free wifi was hit and miss (intermittent service and the latency will bring a grown man to tears). If you're into fitness, we highly recommend Runyon Canyon, which is a ten min walk away. Amazing views... More
