“Notable road with contrast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Sunset Boulevard is a notable road with contrast, as there is expensive and luxury houses in the end of Beverly Hills and in the other end you have the area with strip clubs, bars and houses that definitely need to be repaired.

It is a must see tourist stuff, and my best advice is AVOID THIS ROAD IN THE RUSH HOUR. Unless you like getting stuck in the traffic.

“It's a road”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

We drove down the street because it is the tourist thing to do but to be honest I have seen nicer streets. This place has history but it has also seen better days. It is a thing to tick of the LA tourist list but overall not impressive.

“Iconic Road in the heart of Hollywood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

I never thought it was possible to find a road enjoyable but Sunset Blvd is certainly one!

Hotels, bars and restaurants provide the best of what is to offer in the evening on an iconic road.

Cafe Med, Bar Rock and the Viper room are just a few of them many places you can visit along the way. Or just take a drive to get a true feel of Hollywood as the large billboards pass you by.

It will not have great appeal to everyone but for me, this is one of my most favourite places to head to!
