Let me start with booking. I was desperate for a place to stay while in Hollywood. Contacted the b&b after reading good reviews in TripAdvisor. Initially, they did not have any vacancy for the days I wanted. Elaine went the Extra mile though to recommend her neighbor who also runs a b&b. Unfortunately, there was also no vacancy as well....

We stayed for 4 nights at Elain's and we loved it! Alain is an amazing hostess with a fantastic B&B. The rooms are very comfortable in a lovely Hollywood house, parking is easy, breakfast is delicious and your are in a lovely area of Los Angeles. Do not hesitate to stay here!!!

My husband and I spent 2 weeks travelling up the Californian coast, starting in LA and finishing in LA. We stayed at Elaine's on both occasions. This place is great! The location is fantastic, just a 10-15 minute walk to the main attractions of Hollywood; Graumans Chinese Theatre, Hollywood and Highland, etc. Although you are very close to the hustle... More

Our stay with Elaine und (at that time) her friend Lizzy was fabulous. It was so much fun sitting in the kitchen together having breakfast and listening to their stories. The rooms are lovely, it feels like being at home. The House is very central, it takes 15 minutes to walk to the "walk of fame" and 5 minutes to... More

Located in between Sunset Blvd and Hollywood Blvd. Very quite neighborhood located on a palm tree lined street. There was always a place to park. Within walking distance to the Walk of Fame. The Chinese Theatre is about a mile walk. Would stay here again.

My daughter and I spent two nights. Elaine was out of town, but she left Perry to care for us. He's delightful company. The rooms are pretty and bright.

We only stayed at Elaine's for one night - the night we arrived in LA from England. We arrived later than expected to find a note on the door, which was no problem at all. Perry was covering for Elaine, who was in Antarctica (very cool!) and he was friendly and polite. As we were on a budget, we booked... More

Besides Elaine being a fantastic, down to Earth, hostess, the location is perfect. Walking ~ all the Hwood sights are right there. Driving ~ easy access to Laurel Canyon to the Valley, straight down Sunset to the 101 or going the other way on Sunset to the beach. The house is lovely, homey and clean.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
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.
