The service here, and the staff, were almost ridiculously good. They sorted out our car hire, our trip to Six Flags, dinner reservations (including driving us to and from the great restaurant at the top of the hill). There was as much free soda, candy and snacks as you wanted. Free use of LA Fitness just across the road. Free...

Stayed two nights as a stop over and would agree with other reviewers that the best part about this hotel is the service. The location is great and the large rooms are good value for families. They have everything you need. Although physically not the snazziest hotel (think more luxury motel), this is more than made up for by the...

OK. Right off the bat, if you want a 5 star hotel, this might not be the place for you. It is a converted apartment building. It is a bit of a throwback. My kids wanted me to mention that they had to sleep on a sleep sofa. BUT, when I asked them if they would go back, they both...

This was my second trip to LA and a return visit to Magic Castle.. I was really please and happy that the hotel and the service of its staff had not changed and in fact gotten better since my last visit in 2012. The rooms are great, love the kitchen and location. It was a summer holiday this time so...

Super friendly and helpful staff in a close location to Hollywood. We had a suite with lots of room--kitchen, etc.--more like an apartment. Good continental breakfast, also. Not a luxurious hotel, but you feel at home here.

This review is several months overdue, but I wanted to share my experience. I chose this hotel based on other tripadvisor reviews and had a wonderful stay. The best part about this hotel is the service. Everyone on staff was so helpful. We had a warm welcome when we arrived, and our room was available right away even though we...

It was our first time in Californie and we chose Los Angeles as the last stop in our road trip. We did not know in which area to stay but we wanted to be close to Hollywood. We chose Magic Castle Hotel based on the reviews on tripadvisor and were not disappointed: It was litteraly at 5mn by feet from...

This hotel is a wonderful haven of the most incredible customer service, anywhere! From emails before our arrival, phone conversations and at check in the staff are fantastic. The 2 Nicks, Kevin & Mallory could not have been friendlier, or more helpful, as were all the staff! The breakfast, eaten outside by the, heated, pool was lovely and the "open...

Our room was huge, like having our own apartment in Hollywood! Although this is an older building, the room had been nicely renovated. The outdoor pool was beautiful and not at all crowded or noisy. The staff are the best I have found in any hotel, nothing is too much trouble for them. When we arrived we didn't have enough...
