I cannot give this hotel enough kudos for its location, customer service, LA vibe and the quality of the accommodation. From the moment we walked in & were greeted with fresh lemonade & inter eating info about the hotel, facilities, area, to being showed to our one bedroom apartment, I could not fault our experience here at all. Perks include... More

Stayed here for four nights in August 2014. Great customer service with sparkling lemonade on arrival and great help with things to do and see. Complimentary WiFi was awesome and super fast. Breakfast was plentiful and it was great to see they had some vegemite, Free ice blocks, snacks and drinks were also a lovely touch. Close to Hollywood Walk... More

I came to Los Angeles, CA with my sister, & friend as it was a gift from High School Graduation. I loved EVERYTHING about CALIFORNIA & this hotel. The free snacks were a very nice touch as well. I highly recommend this hotel.

There's only one way to summarise this place - the staff at another hotel said "They spoil their guests". And it's true - free snacks, magicians at Breakfast, sparkling soft drink at check-in. The property is a short walk from Hollywood Blvd, and the staff were more than happy to provide me directions. The rooms are on various levels, with... More

As many people do, we chose this hotel based partially on tripadvisor reviews. It is everything advertised, and more! Yes, the hotel is not a five star hotel. It does not claim to be. it is an old apartment/condo complex converted into a hotel. While not "fancy,"it is clean, comfortable and large. More importantly, what it lacks in fancy appointments,...

This hotel is the friendliest hotel we have ever stayed at. All staff are helpful and offer any service needed with a smile. We made use of the free laundry service, complimentary soft drinks and snacks and they even provided stamps and mailed our postcards! The hotel is only a short walk to Hollywood Boulevard. We would definitely stay there... More

We chose this hotel after reading reviews here and I do not believe we could have done better. From the moment we arrived we discovered exceptional, friendly service and once shown to our huge suite with all the space we needed I knew our 4 days in LA would have a fantastic base. We were half way through a road... More

Hollywood isn't the most appealing of places to stay but there were must do's there and so the search for appropriate accommodation for a family of five began. We booked magic castle based on recommendations and reviews on this site. It really was a little above our price range but that seems to be what you pay in the area... More

It is my absolute pleasure to give these guys a gleaming review because this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at! From the moment they passed us our welcome drinks we felt right at home. The hotel itself is quirky and fun and welcoming. Our room, or should I say large appartment, was like a home... More

Although I had some other more iconic options in mind for our L.A 4 day stay, as we were doing quite few other destinations and spending heaps, We booked this based upon the travel agents big recommendation and the online reviews. Now I have to admit, we came from staying at the Disneyland grand Californian resort to stay here, so... More
