Thomas was very welcoming and we had a good parking spot in a gated area. We were free to come and go as needed. We stayed in the cottage, where we had a great shower area and a nicely decorated room. The secret garden has an at home feel and not for those seeking a sterile hotel environment. Thomas definitely... More

His home is filled with exquisite treasures from around the world,... More

Thomas was an excellent host. We got there because we needed a quick alternative to a bad airbnb-experience and we were glad to find this gem. Host: Very caring and friendly. We would come again just to visit Thomas. Rooms: Clean and comfortable, we slept like babies. No air conditioning but still pleasantly cool. Parking: Is generally available but may... More

My cousin and I wanted to stay another night in the Hollywood area, since we had more to see and Thomas at the Secret Garden Bed and Breakfast gave us that opportunity with a wonderful stay. This is a gem. From the antiques that reflect old Hollywood glamour and a mixture of Hearst Castle type eclectic art to the lovely... More

Since my first stay at the Secret Garden Bed and Breakfast back in 2002, recently renamed Secret Garden Hollywood, I have written several reviews of the BnB, and even if over the years the BnB has changed host the friendly and welcoming atmosphere remains, with a location that could not be more convenient, with nice breakfast and gated parking.

We stayed for six days, and it was the best lodging experience we have had in many years. The innkeeper, Sylvester, is elegant, attentive, and laid back - all at the same time. The inn is fantastic, the garden is shabby-chic, and it is located in absolutely the best place for easy access to all LA neighborhoods. The breakfasts are... More
