We unfortunately could only stay 2 nights as we were driving to Las Vegas, but had a fantastic time and can't thank the staff enough for spoiling us with wine and cake on our arrival and a lovely card. We enjoyed a one bedroom apartment with the pool view and loved the extras such as snacks and free laundry. The... More

My wife and I were in transit to NY so we had 2 nights in LA and on the TA recommendation we booked the Magic Castle, being rated #1 hotel in LA on TA. Well I can't comment on its ranking but if it's #1 in that huge cosmopolitan then the others must be second rate! Please I'm not complaining... More

We spent 4 nights here in July and had a fantastic experience! Location wise it was great, not even a 5 minute walk to the Hollywood Boulevard as well as being quite close to universal studios. Staff were exceptional, really went above and beyond. The complimentary mini bar and washing service was very handy and the Vegemite in a tube... More

This hotel has no elevator.We were at first given a room on the second level and the stairs are steep.After a 10pm check in we were in no mood to argue. The young fellow on reception could talk the leg off an iron pot!The room was tiny facing the courtyard and had nothing to block out the light.The air conditioner... More

We only stayed for one night and I was taken from the moment we stepped into the hotel. The service is excellent and the staff go way beyond what is expected. We were going to a Dodgers game and as we were heading out they gave us a package of "must haves" to take to the game. To our surprise... More

This would have to be one of the most interesting and quirky places I have ever stayed! The staff go out of their way to provide all these unexpected little surpises - a soft drink on arrival, a bag of lollies, popcorn with a DVD, a pair of slippers, and so on. Guests are actually provided with a list of... More

A great place to stay in the Hollywood area. This is not a sleek, anonymous megahotel. Instead, imagine a really hip friend loaned you his retro 50's - 60's pied-a-terre. The place is a converted apartment complex with period style decor. I was looking for Jim Rockford. The staff is excellent: friendly and helpful. You feel like you're a special... More

This is the second time I have stayed at the Magic Castle; and I returned for the obvious reason that my first stay two years ago was lovely; the accommodations were good and the location is excellent... I booked a one bedroom suite in January for our September booking and I talked it up to my travel companions. I should... More

If you thought it was all about architecture and pools and comfy furniture, (yes that is all at the Magic Castle Hotel), but the hospitality and good vibes you get at the place are off the charts. They remember your name, they hand out popsicles in the middle of the hot day, and will bend over backwards to accommodate. It... More
