“Great inspiration, perfect guide, privacy”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

I stayed at Dresden's BB second time. It was short trip to visit West Hollywood Halloween, spend some time in Santa Monica, visit vibery in Santa Ynez and local food. Location is perfect. Walking distance to Hollywood Blvd, nice areas for morning jogging, it is easy to park your car. House is perfect as well - you have all benefits of living in real, hollywood-style house, but also have as much privacy as you like. Another benefit is, that Dresden, host of the place, can recommend you best places to visit - not touristic places, but real, like Hollywood Farmers Market, Griddles Cafe or nice street with european style restaurants (done with american way).

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Just send email, tell who you are and what is your travel experience - Dresden will recommend you be...

We stayed at Dresden's place in May 2013, and we had a great time.
We started our trip badly with a car accident just miles before arriving at Dresden's B & B.
Arriving with a 2.5 hour delay, at 11.00 PM, Dresden was waiting for us, calming us done and opening a bottle of wine to end our bad entrance in the USA.
The room was clean, had a comfortable bed, WIFI, and a ceiling-fan. The shared-bath was not a problem, certainly because the other room was occupied by our friends, who were travelling with us.
In the morning, we always had a fresh coffee to start the day.
The location was just perfect! No bad traffic, a nice calm street, always a parking spot... and magnificent palm trees. In just a few minutes you can go to the Walk of Fame, but also Universal Studios is in the neighbourhood.
Dresden herself is a very warm person, who makes you feel at home.
I would definitely stay here again in the future, and hope to do so!

The B&B is in a very good position and safe neighborhood. In fact, it 's quite close (walking distance) to the Walk of Fame in Hollywood and the subway station. It has a free parking space available in the street by the house. If you are not sure where to park just ask Dresden. She will be pleased to give you useful information about sights, shops, markets, shopping malls and many others. The B&B offers you a complete kitchen and a swimming pool. In addition, wi-fi and air-con are available in the room. Just remember to book in advance!

I really don’t understand what makes all the opinions about this place so unanimous. We stayed for a couple of nights and it was a great disappointment. In fact, we had three nights booked, but we had to stay in another B&B in the same street because the owner overbooked our first night. There’s no way that this B&B can be a 5star place, despite the kindness of the owner, the place does not really deserve being so well rated. There are two things that you can ask for in a so-called B&B: Bed, and Breakfast. Ok, there’s no breakfast, this is a minor problem. Shared bathroom, this is another minor problem. The pool has no water in august, well, we are not in L.A. to swim in a pool. But when you think of all the minor problems in a place that has all this 5stars you wonder what’s so good about it. The location? Yes, it’s near Hollywood in a good neighbourhood, but if that’s all you ask, just in front of this B&B there’s another one that has room with private bathroom, and they serve breakfast. And they are also nice and helpful with places to visit and where to go. We had the opportunity to stay in both of them and the difference was huge.

Our first time in LA we stayed at Dresden's B&B. Dresden was a fantastic host and her home is in such a wonderful location. We were able to walk down to Sunset Blvd and over to Hollywood Blvd. Dresden had great suggestions as to where to go and what to do to maximize our time in LA. Wouldn't stay anywhere else! Highly recommended!

I can't believe Dresden's in only #5! I really can't imagine staying anywhere else in LA. Dresden's home is lovely, clean, and comfortable as well as centrally located. While she doesn't make breakfast for you, she is the best tour guide you will ever have for LA no matter what you want to do. Dresden's home is centrally located so that you can experience all that LA has to offer easily. I travel extensively, and come to LA often. I haven't stayed anywhere else in the world that feels more like coming home. You have a tv and wifi in your room. I've never had a bad night's sleep in the many times I've stayed with Dresden. You are very close to Runyon canyon if you want some exercise hiking and the neighbourhood is wonderful to walk or jog around. Don't bother looking or researching other places to stay - contact Dresden to book - you won't be sorry!

We have been staying at Dresden's B&B for just over 6 years and as far as Los Angeles goes staying in the heart of this Hollywood/West Hollywood neighborhood is the ONLY way to go!
Everything is here!! Restaurants, shopping, nightlife, Runyon Canyon-a must see& do activity for anyone visiting LA. We walk everywhere which given traffic and beautiful weather and neighborhoods you will want to do. LACMA the great art museum is nearby and so is the Groves and it's world class market where al under one structure you can eat your choice of dozens of international cuisines while sipping wine and beers from around globe. And of course Holywood blvd is just steps away.
Dresdens B & B is beautifully laid out in American arts and crafts period decor. The rooms are very comfortable and the hominess of her special touches are welcoming after a full day of touring through Hollywod blvd. Or downtown LA. Or Pasadena. Or studio tours. Or Silverlake. Or Malibu.
Dresden herself is a breathing compass and amateur historian of LA and so many interesting but lesser known sites are at her fingertips. The pool is inviting especially in summer months.
We have never looked back. No hotels for us in LA ever again. She offers refrigerator space to store snacks wine etc. we always bring snacks back and she stores separately. She also designates parking for her guests ( big plus in LA). Enjoy staying there. She books up well in advance so plan accordingly.

Room Tip: Front room has slightly larger bed and closet space.
