This place books early and for good reason. This is truly a special spot with history and character. If you are looking for the Hilton, move on, this place is not for you. If you are looking for a boutique hotel with a sixties feel, short walk to Hollywood Blvd with extremely friendly staff book now! We were upgraded to...

Thank you for writing about your experience with us. I'm really glad you enjoyed it so much. Your review was very descriptive. I agree, if a reader out there is looking for a chain hotel experience, we're probably not a good fit. Being an independent hotel is wonderful, and our guests benefit. I do hope you come and stay with...

The only regret I have about staying at the magi castle is that we only stayed one night. The rates are good for this area of L.A. and the staff are excellent - special thanks to Nick and Monica who made us feel very welcome. They upgraded us to a suite without us even asking! Also they give you a...

Wow! What a hidden gem. My wife and our 3 kids had an absolute awesome few nights at The Magic Castle Hotel in Hollywood before flying home to Australia. Fantastic location, hip and friendly staff. Not to mention the heated pool, complimentary breakfast and free snacks at anytime of the night or day, oh, and even a free laundry service....

Christopher W, Happy kids.....happy parents. I really am so happy that your kids enjoyed the hotel so much. Yes, the free laundry service is pretty fun. You shouldn't have to do laundry while on vacation. It's nice to hit the reset button on vacation and have all clean clothes again for the rest of your trip, or in your case.....not...

We stayed in this hotel for three nights in November as part of our highway 1 road trip experience. I cannot express enough just how friendly and welcoming the staff were. We booked a two bedroom studio which was, in fact. a full size double room apartment. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, they took all our laundry...

My friend booked a 3 week trip to USA. I was a bit worried as we are a 5 star family and mostly all accommodation was 3 stars. Out of all of the hotels (even Hilton in Hawaii) this was a favourite. The level of customer service was outstanding the say the least. The 24 hour snacks were a massive...

All the staff were always friendly and helpful. We were given complimentary drinks on check in too. The rooms were large and it was good to not be watching tv on your bed for once. The bedroom and bathroom weren't modern looking but they had been well maintained. The interior looked recently painted. The heated pool was great with pool...

Location of the hotel was great, walking distance to Hollywood Boulevard and most attractions. Room was large and clean, with a sort of retro feel to it. The showstopper here is the staff. They will go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need, from directions or suggestions on where to eat and where to go; they'll...

Magic Castle is well located in Hollywood. Just one block far from walk of fame and Chinese Theatre. If you are lucky you will be able to be on a “hands print ceremony” and have a glimpse of Tom Cruise and Ben Stiller as I did. Not just only the location make Magic castle “Magic”.

We stayed two nights in November and were greeted by the lovely Nick and Kevin who made us feel incredibly welcome. Our room was great - we got one with a kitchenette, which had everything we needed. The front rooms do get traffic noise at night, which we found a bit much as we are not at all used to...
