Amazing hidden gem in LA

Worth a visit even if you don't follow architecture views over city give a new perspective. Interior beautiful ask about why the ceiling is so low in some areas.

This house was yet another lovely example of Frank Lloyd Wright's unique style. There is rather limited access to the rooms that you can view (no walk throughs), no kitchen viewing for example, so the time needed to see this house is not as demanding as others. You will not need to buy advance tickets as is necessary for some... More

Not all rooms are accessible, but visiting Hollyhock House is well worth the trip. I found the docents to be well informed and willing to share the history of the home. There was an original,Lionel train set up around the Christmas tree and the grounds visible from the house were well kept. I am glad to see a little part... More

Only a limited number of rooms open, and you 'view' them rather than walking through. Nevertheless the space itself is stunning, and it's hard to imagine the original owner chose not to live there. Feels very inviting to me. The criticism is, that like many FLW homes, it is more a triumph of design and less one of function, but... More

Don't miss this architectural gem in the middle of Old Hollywood. The breathtaking views from Barnsdall Park include the Hollywood sign, Griffith Park Observatory, Hollywood and Los Angeles. The home has been beautifully restored and features Frank Lloyd Wright's original furniture. A guided tour with a docent is a must to get the most out of your experience.

For years, I have read about this unique house based on the old-fashioned flower, the hollyhock. Even though you are limited to the number of rooms you can visit, what you do get to see is just wonderful! I wish they had been able to fill the moat around the fireplace with water (as it was intended to do). The... More

The docent was worth it....so enthusiastic, so informed, so into the house, history, neighborhood, architecture. He knew about the Barnsdall family, Frank Lloyd Wright and the history of how the Hollyhock House evolved...and it evolved! The story of Los Angeles architecture figures into the story which made each of us more intrigued. The restoration of the house is a good... More

A bit ridiculous to pay $7 for what this house visit is. You cant even see the whole house! The fence around the house is also a poor choice. Just a cheap looking metal fence that looks temporary as opposed to something that matches the beauty of the house itself

Spent a Friday evening at Hollyhock House a Frank Lloyd Wright house in Hollywood. The tour was great and informative and the wine tasting was a blast. The lawn on the west side of the home was filled with a fun crowd. Surprisingly there were no California wines to taste.

Aline Barnsdall loved hollyhocks and you can see how Frank Lloyd Wright incorporated them in the furniture and rug designs as well as on the inner and outer walls. As noted in other reviews, visitors can unfortunately only view the first floor of the home. The docents are wonderful and very willing to talk with you about the history of... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
