I booked this hotel on Tablet Hotels and decided to stay here as my wife was joining me for the weekend and thought we would step it up. It is advertised as a boutique hotel. Key word, hotel. So, i arrived the night before my wife at around 8pm. First of all…. almost impossible to find from the street as... More

I stayed there in May this year. The locale is perfect and the apartments are really adorable but there is much improvement needed in customer service to call this a 5 star hotel. There are absolutely no amenities provided in the rooms. I arrived late at night to find no water, coffee, tea or a snack of any kind. As... More

For years and years and years I have to travel and am living in hotels for approx. 200 nights a year. Believe me, I do know them all. From the new vibrant sleek boutique places to the standards of the well-known five star hotel chains. I have to say that some of these hotels I do really like, some others... More

The Charlie is lovely, it feels just like staying in someone's house. It is old and charming, and the fixtures and fittings reflect this. This is not a traditional hotel, with room service and so on, but is a great place to stay. The kitchen is well equipped, and there's a supermarket within walking distance so you can stock up...

My husband and I decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary by getting away from our daily routine, and the Charlie hotel seemed like a great choice.The moment we stepped into this place we totally forgot we were in the city! We were so close to all the restaurants, shops and West Hollywood "action, but at the same time so secluded... More

Attracted by the charm and quant atmosphere of this hotel. The self contained rooms were nicely appointed with each having its own courtyard areas. The location of the hotel is reasonably close to all your needs. There is no 24 staff on site so be warned should there be a problem. We experienced a problem with our hot water system... More

I took a wild stab at staying at the Charlie because of its great location in West Hollywood and proximity to a very sick friend who lives there. Although I was initially unsure how to get in past the attractive keypadded security gate (a nice plus mind you), I was delightfully greeted by the friendly young family staff Dylan and... More

Stayed in the Steve for only one night. Wish we could have stayed longer but we were in town for a friends birthday party. Not sure what we were getting into but we were pleasantly surprised with the bungalow unit. The property was very well maintained and well planned out. Our suite was clean and very well equipped. My only... More

The Charlie was quaint, beautiful and secluded with close proximity to many sites. We were prepared with our own coffee and condiments, however, there are grocery stores close by if you need to pick something up. The staff was gracious and attentive. This will be our go-to place ANYTIME we are in CA. ps…GREAT breakfast at "Sweet Lady Janes" around... More

Before you can decide if this hotel is right for you, you'll need to be clear on what you are looking for. If you need a place for an extended stay that provides a full kitchen, dishwasher, pots, pans, silverware, air conditioning, cable TV, washing machine & dryer for laundry at a reasonable price. This is the place for you.... More

Thank you for your review DESNY! I apologize that your stay with us was not to your liking. We do provide coffee makers in our rooms.
