“Best Hotel of our trip!”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

This hotel was amazing! In short; if you are looking for a great budget hotel in the heart of hollywood, go no further than this!

Please read on for a more detailed review :-)

I found it after looking at numerous reviews. Most of them were good so we took a gamble. It paid off!

As a budget hotel, this is amazing. It is really nicely decorated on the inside and our room was tastfully decked out in an old school hollywood theme. So much room!
Bed- so comfy!
It had a fridge, table, chairs in a wee kitchenette corner, a dressing room with one of those mirrors with lights round it (loved it!), a big wardrobe, iron, bath and shower. Cold and warm water were in plenty a supply (trust me, LA in August- you'll need cold showers!!!)

The breakfast was very good, especially as a traveler as we were not used to the American breakfast of Muffins or Croissants. The cereal, milk, toast and spreads were much appreciated! You collect your food then take it back up to your room.

The air con was great- better to keep the windows shut as the rooms facing the road can be a wee bit noisy.

The location? If you want to stay in hollywood you can't get better! It's right there in the middle of things, yet because it's situated one block behind the main drag, you don't get the noise, bustle, or homeless people like you do on the Boulevard.

It has free parking. The lot is small and often full, but the staff are very accommodating and will shift cars around to make yours fit (and even park it for you if your husband is too scared to attempt parking the expensive rental car in a tiny spot...)

Speaking of the staff, we found them all great. Well presented, helpful and friendly. Cleaning service was great too.

The ONLY downside of this hotel is the location. Like I said, if you WANT to be in Hollywood, this is definitely the place to be. However I found Hollywood quite different than I imagined and would not want to go see it again.

However would still stay here again using it as a base to see other parts of the city.

Thankyou so much HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITY HOTEL for a great stay- you'd get 6 stars if I could give them!

My friends and I just returned home a 2-week trip through California, with the majority of our time spent at the Hollywood Celebrity Hotel. As students in our early 20s we were not looking for the best looking hotel but for a hotel that was close to most of the attractions we had in mind with a price that was not expensive. The Hollywood Celebrity was all that plus more. It was extremely cheap for the area, It is located right behind the Hollywood and Highland and just steps away from the walk of fame, many theaters, museums, and night life. But most importantly the Hollywood Celebrity had the best staff and service I have had at any hotel I have been to. We were usually up pretty early in the mornings and out the door to go sight seeing pretty fast. So the continental breakfast provided was all we needed. Because we left pretty early in the mornings we did not really get to know the daytime staff although they were always happy to answer our questions and greet with the biggest smiles on their faces. The best service came from Syed at the front desk. The night before we arrived at the hotel we called letting him know that we would be checking in late. When we arrived the next day he knew exactly who we were and had everything ready for us. We quickly came to realize that we needed a car to get around LA and with out any hesitation Syed had called a company for us and in 25 minutes we had a car. Every time we had a question about where something was or how to get somewhere, Syed would always let us know. He was always sure to ask when he saw us come walking through the doors at the end of the day about how our day went, and to suggest new things to do. The Hollywood Celebrity Hotel was a great hotel for us, the price, location, and most importantly the staff were amazing. I would defiantly stay here again.

We spent 2 nights here before we headed to Florida. The hotel was clean and very spacious. Light Breakfast provided was reasonable. Within walkin distance to alot of attractions and tourist spots including Hollywood Bowl. Subway was close by for easy transport and taxi's were simply a request at front desk. The Hotel is fabulous for those on a budget and not looking for Bells and Whistles.
Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the heart of LA. Restaurants and Entertainment all close by as well as shopping!!!.

Stayed here as we read it was a good location. We were very happy with our choice! Easy walk to the Hollywood walk of fame and the Chinese theatre etc. We were also able to park for free although we had a large car for our stay which we did have trouble trying to find a space. It was really quirky with all of the old Hollywood movie posters in the hotel and rooms etc. The rooms were also fairly large and well equipped and nice and clean. The breakfast was ok but we only used it once and chose to go out for breakfast the other mornings. The hotel itself was really nice and what we expected for the money and the location. The only little niggle is that we were quite near reception and it was quite noisy but not enough that we felt as though we needed to complain. The staff were friendly and showed us maps of places to go and see etc. Foe people moaning about there not being lifts etc – we heard two couples on the first floor asking for help with their luggage at reception and both were helped immediately so I do not see this as a problem at all. Also people moaning that it isn’t modern? You could surely see from where you booked that this was an ‘oldie’ hotel! All in all a good central location hotel which I would happily stay at again and definitely recommend!
