We found this place to be utterly charming – perfectly situated in LA for access to anywhere, and particularly convenient to the wonderful West Hollywood, Los Feliz & Silverlake areas. Free parking, and you can even walk – yes, walk – to several restaurant options and even to Griffin Park.
Doughal is a pleasant, friendly host (we were out a lot and never got to meet his wife). They offer a simple breakfast (fresh fruit and muffins/pastries), but I didn't really expect or want more from a B&B in the big city. Full access to a stove an fridge in a lovely kitchen if you wish to stay in and cook a night. There is a washer/dryer in the kitchen/common room area for your use as well. We stayed in the "Peace" room, which lived up to its name - peaceful and comfortable in a simple, minimalist way. Nice, sizeable bathroom with a huge clawfoot tub that made my bath-favoring girlfriend incredibly happy.
Was here for only three nights, but it suited our needs perfectly, and in fact felt like a perfect base for a longer trip to LA. As much as I am charmed by some places, I generally wind up having an urge to try something different if I return to a place. But I'm quite confident that if and when I do return to LA, I will be eagerly checking to see if the Pensione is available, which, when I think about it, is among the highest praise as I can think of.
