“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

I am a minimalist, so this was a perfect choice: great location (a block away from Hollywood/Vine metro station), 5 min away from the Walk of Fame, 10 min away from the Dolby and Grauman's Theaters... CVS is right around the corner. There's a bus stop right next to the hotel - you'll be able to get to Burbank and go to the Warner Bros. Studio (bus #222). All kinds of restaurants and mini-food markets are within a walking distance, too), great price (I booked mine for $80/night), free breakfast (simple but enough to fuel up in the morning (bagels, juice, coffee, granola bars). The front desk (Karina) was very helpful and super-friendly.
The room itself is simple: a big bed, a microwave, a mini-fridge, a 6-drawer dresser, and a nice bathroom (you can actually sit in the bathtub as there is an "edge" within it for sitting down!). Very clean. No tea/coffeemaker, though, which was a bit inconvenient because I like to enjoy a cup of tea in the evening... Breakfast starts at 8 am on weekdays and at 9 am on weekends. Maybe because they already provide tea/coffee at breakfast, there's no coffeemaker in the room?.. Oh, well. Get your coffee at Starbucks - you are on the west coast, there are tons of them :-)
AC is powerful but you get to control how hot/cold you want it.
To sum things up, I really did love the hotel. It's a great deal and a gem. Will be back for sure.

This hotel was an excellent place to stay at during our visit in LA. We met friends there for the week. They had stayed previously and spoke highly of the property. The hotel is a boutique hotel - small, but a nice hotel. The room was excellent. The room was clean. The staff was very friendly. They provided more personal service because of the size of the hotel. It is a 3-floor walk-up, so if you have issues with climbing stairs, it may not be the spot for you. But, for us, it was great! My wife and I agreed that should we travel to LA again, we would stay there. Plus, we have recommended it to others. The only knock I have is the continental breakfast. The food and drinks were fine, but the food is served in small lobby. Plus, they do not serve until 8 a.m. We were usually already out and about by then. That was not a major concern for us, though. A major plus for the hotel is its location - about 1.5 blocks from Capital Records and about a 2-block walk from the Walk of Fame. It is centrally located to the history of Hollywood.

Convenient location, wonderful staff. Nostalgic/a bit of old Hollywood charm... close to the metro station,.. plenty of restaurants around.. I went without a car and found that getting around was quite easy... but if you have a small child or you plan to do a lot of site seeing you would probably want a car.. but good news, there is convenient parking available but call about the parking rates and options... there is no elevator- its only 2 floors (still easy access), but request bottom floor in advance if you have special restrictions.. I will definitely be booking this hotel again. :)

We Stayed at the Hotel Hollywood for 3 nights. While there we found the hotel to be extremely clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast included in the price was basic and the breakfast room can get a little crowded although a great place to meet people. The location is good and we didn't feel unsafe at anytime. For the the price we paid I can not fault this little hotel.

We have been travelling for 7 weeks, mostly camping in a tent, this was our last stop. The hotel was very clean, staff friendly and only a block from Hollywood Boulevard. Not too badly priced although tents do come much cheaper, lol. Breeakfast was not 5 star but had bagels, coffee, fresh fruit, muffin bars so can't complain. It was enough to give u a start for the day.

Highly recommended place to stay.

the place is somewhat between a hotel and a B&B. First and foremost, it is quite a bargain in this area. My rate was around USD70/double room/night, including a simple self-service continental breakfast with bagel, juice, coffee, fruits.

The receptionist was quite nice and courteous and I saw her giving guests directions with google map print out. The place looked like a cozy joint and there was a little style in its decor. The room was on the small side, but still with usable space. Bathroom was functional with toiletries. Overall, it was a tidy and comfortable place to bunker down.

There were supermarkets and stores across the road for you to stock up, which is a notch up. It was particularly convenient to go to universal studio as it was just 2 metro stops away. Metro station was 5 minutes' walk away. I was not sure whether they offer free parking because I did not see any parking slots within the premises. if you do not want the hassle, you could definitely go around by bus, with some planning. But you may probably need to change at some point if you target santa monica or elsewhere.

If you are wanting fancy service and a pool etc, move on, but if you really only need a place to sleep for running around gorgeous fascinating hollywood, THIS IS YOUR HOTEL!. super friendly helpful staff! great with directions. this hotel is close to everything and you cant beat the price. rooms are basic and keep the retro hollywood yesteryear charm. why pay big money for someplace when you are running all over fabulous LA? they even made special accomodations for me to stay in the same room marilyn monroe stayed in. three of my nights were avail but one wasnt for this room, they switched things around for me and it was such a thrill. to look out the window, and see what marilyn saw, when she dreamed of one day being the queen of the city! and see the capital hotel knickerbocker where marilyn eventually stayed with joe dimaggio on thier honeymoon. great location to everything. i will stay here again and again! VERY clean rooms, quiet, comfortable bed. i will be booking my next stay here also! amazing staff!if i had to pick a downside it is that the parking is down on the next block, NOT FAR though. thats not the problem. i wanted to park during the day and the lot was filled, but nights were ALWAYS open no problem. i came and went and had an amazing visit, and the great fair price allowed me to do other things i wouldnt have been able to otherwise!

Room Tip: many celebs have started here on thier way up to stardom. just ask and they will try to help you get...
