After seeing the price of accomodation in LA I had doubts as th whether we would actually stay. Thankfully we found Elaine who was the perfect host. The room was perfect and breakfast was worth getting up for. And when it is walking distance to the Walk of Fame, how can you complain. Loved our stay.

Excellent location. Plenty of eateries just down the road. All bedrooms are upstairs. Bed was firm providing a good night's sleep. No aircon but has a ceiling fan. Room has a TV with adequate channels. Toilet amenities were adequate. Very quiet home. No shoes allowed upstairs. Very amicable host. Our room was tight with one large case on the floor...

Spent 3 nights at Elaine's. We were made to feel very welcome. Elaine and Bijou have a beautiful home. Parking for our hire car outside on the road, which Elaine has signs up warning you about road cleaning on Mondays and Tuesdays. We had a lovely large family room with everything you need, fridge, TV, board games, books & magazines...

The main memorable feature of our stay was being shown around by a lady who was high as a kite. It was our first time in LA and this certainly contributed to the experience. The lady who showed us around was pleasant enough but the experience was unsettling. When she showed us to our room she had to sit on...

This must be a very old review because the lady in question no longer works for me. Perry helps out when I am away and he does not drink! Sorry that you had this experience but things are a lot different now.

We stayed here for 5 nights back in November. We found Elaine's to be a home from home. We stayed in the green room which was a little room but we were out everyday anyway so it didn't bother us, there was also an ensuite. Both were very clean and tidy. Breakfast was continental but each morning we were spoilt...

My husband and I stayed here for three nights while touring the Hollywood area. The bed and breakfast is in a perfect location - right in between Sunset Blvd. and Hollywood Blvd. You are less than a mile from many attractions. We had a rental car but left it at the house most days as it was difficult to find...

A good base for the Hollywood tourist hotspots whether you're walking in or get an Uber. The room we stayed in was pleasant enough, not luxurious by any stretch of the imagination but that's not what we booked in for. FYI, you had to fight with the handle on the bathroom to get out again if you closed the door...

Located in a lovely tree lined street between Sunset and Hollywood about a mile or so from the start of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Lovely house, comfortable room with a balcony overlooking the rear garden. Quiet neighborhood. Elaine is a very friendly host. Visited a local Italian restaurant Cheebo for an excellent evening meal close by. Parking in the...

My second stay at Elaine's, and I was delighted that everything was as good as I remembered. The location is excellent, especially if, like me, you're on foot—walk three minutes up the street and you're on Hollywood Blvd (about 15 minutes to the Chinese Theatre), walk down and you're on Sunset Blvd. There's a good restaurant right down on the...

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
