Dresden B&B
Ranked #10 of 95 Los Angeles B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Everyone has highlighted all the great things about staying at Dresden B&B, including the lovely lovely host, the charming house, the great location, etc. They are all true!

We stayed for 6 nights, and it was like staying at the home of a really good friend. We were experiencing rainy weather when we arrived, and Dresden lent us two umbrellas (without us asking!) and even a raincoat for my boyfriend who didn't have the right jacket for the wet season (Dresden, I know you'll be reading this. We were so touched and grateful for the coat).

She even allowed us to use her washer and dryer, although it wasn't part of the facilities listed.

It's been a month since our stay, and we still miss our host, the quaint house filled with warm memories, and the lovely street where the house is on. The entire stay was cosy, homey and our host was thoughtful and sincere...how 'unhollywood' right in Hollywood. If I return to LA, I'd stay here again without a second thought.

After month of traveling once around the globe, we found Dresden's B&B.
This was probably the best thing which could have happened to us in LA. The location is just perfect.
It took us about 15 minutes to the Walk of Fame. Within a few minutes you can get to bus stations to get to the Cove or any other place in LA.

We walked around a lot and also at late night and never had any safety concerns around the area where the house is.

Now about the person who will take care of you.

Dear Dresden,
We had an absolutely lovely and great time staying at your place. We wanted to thank you for all the love and warmth you have given us during this time. You and Bo will always be part of our memories of the trip around the globe last year. We miss it as you have been such a great host and helped us out with tips and coupons to get around LA. When we get back to LA we know where to stay. Who needs a fancy hotel when you can have the most lovely host on this planet.

Thank you Dresden

Instead of being an usual tourist you'll get the feeling of a LA local.

Here are some reasons:

- From Dresden you will get the insider tips
- living directly in Hollywood
- feels like home
- Find out new interesting places you wouldn't have found
- Get exercise in the Runyon Canyon in immediate proximity
- Meet nice people
- Parking is not a problem
- Dresden loves people and you'll notice it
- There is a lot of fun
- Dresden loves to share her knowledge and she knows a lot!!!
- Beau is a very lovely and friendly dog. In the morning he will make sure that you won't pass the day useless in bed ;-)

About us:

- always been interested and fascinated in LA, the music and film scene
- german couple
- a rental car to move freely every day
- greed to discover new things

All these things together have led to one of the best holidays ever!!!

Stayed: October 2012

The location of the house was great between Hollywood and Sunset Blvds. Dresden was very kind and funny and gave us a lot of hints about the city although we only stayed there for two nights. We shared a bathroom with another couple but there were no time conflicts at all. So everything was perfect.

We stayed more than 10 nights at Dresdens B&B with a break of some days in between (we went to Arizona/Nevada) and when we came back from our trip I felt like 'coming home'! We enjoyed our stay and we would choose again Dresdens B&B, because it was perfect!
And by the way: Dresden is very kind, humorous and she knows so many (!) good places to see inside and outside of L.A.!

Thank you, Dresden, for this great and unforgettable time! Hope to see you soon again :)

My boyfriend and I were planning our week long stay in Hollywood and were both desperate to avoid disgusting dirty hotels, but with our price range it looked like we were destined to be sleeping wrapped in rubbish bags on top of some gross bed. But I found Dresden's and just HAD to stay there. I couldn't believe all the excellent reviews, and thought that she couldn't possibly be that great, but she was! Dresden made us both feel completely at home, and was helpful, chatty and friendly, without being invasive. By the end of the trip we were lounging by her pool, instead of at the beach, and on our last night in Hollywood the three of us went out for a lovely dinner on Sunset Boulevard. It has been 5 months since our stay but I found myself thinking of her lovely home and ridiculous laugh and realised I had to write a review, as a last way of saying thank you. Dresen helped to make Hollywood our favourite place in California!

Highly recommend Dresden's B&B. Not only the place itself is so well located and in a beautiful quite street and yet so close to everything!
Dresden is an awesome host!! She looks after her guests really well and goes out of her way to assist in any possible way she can. She takes a personable interest in her guests and makes them feel at home. I felt I was coming home every night I stayed at Dresden's B&B after a full day out in LA!
Great service! Great Host!! It should be ranked the number 1 B&B in LA!!!
