This was a perfect accommodation choice as it is located centrally to most of the attraction in LA. The staff were very friendly and informative. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Excellent holiday destination. Would definitely return.

I was a bit worried after reading the mixed revues of this Hotel. If you're looking for 5 star then you're way off. But, if you want somewhere that is in a great location, is clean and has the convenience of free parking, Wi Fi and supermarket right across the road, then this is definitely it.

The place was recently updated (5 - 7 years), so the bathrooms and beds are fairly new. The breakfast is fine; carb-filled diet for all the walking you have to do in LA. The only... More

On the Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood. Good ok-sized rooms, straight forward, clean, Andy Warhol prints, good bathroom, seemed pretty safe. Pool was clean and over the week wasn't too busy. Decent price. A short walk to good late night food. Carpark.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
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.
