Excellent location, amazing staff!Posted Nov 26, 2013
My family has stayed here twice now and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The location is so convenient to many activities in the area. The Hollywood strip, universal studios, Griffith park, great shopping. The rooms are not fancy but have a perfect little kitchen, and are spotless. The staff were super friendly, especially the lovely lady who runs the continental breakfast. She made us feel very welcome and taken care of, she even asked about family members who were still sleeping and hadn't popped their heads out for breakfast yet. The pool area and rooftop patio are an oasis in the heart of Hollywood. We will be back!

A little Scary!Posted Nov 22, 2013
Pros: Price was reasonable.
First things first... this hotel is very difficult to find. We were using a GPS, and it took us inside of a parking garage. The hotel is actually located on the other side of the entrance. When we did finally check in, the man working at the counter looked like he just crawled out of a gutter. Not professionally dressed at all, he looked like he may have been homeless, or a drug addict. Checking in was quick and easy though. When we first walked into our room, i was very disappointed with the condition of the room. They clearly tried to update the room, but did a very poor job. The tv stand and the bathroom counter were the only updates. The carpet was in very poor condition, and I kept my socks or shoes on at all times. The shower and toilet were both in need of being replaced. Tears/holes in the bedsheets. The nightstand was in VERY poor condition. The overall location of the hotel is good, if you are looking to spend time in Hollywood. I, however, was very disappointed with Hollywood though. Very dirty, run down, homeless people laying on the streets. Felt very unsafe at times.

First Class stay with great locationPosted Nov 20, 2013
Cons: AC system was hard to control/noisy and not a centralised system
Location: Main Hollywood Boulevard is a spit away - what more do you need!
Nothing negative to say about this Hotel. We booked a standard room but were given an apartment unit complete with kitchen and lounge with sofas etc. and 2 flat screen TV's. Location is really good and just a short (2 minute) hop from the main Hollywood Boulevard. Breakfast is included for all guest with pastries yogurts and fruits. Nice pool in the courtyard but we did not make any use of this. Also has good quality WiFi which (unlike so many other hotels) is free! Very happy to recommend this hotel and really can't see why others have rated as they have.

Great hotel, right in the middle of all the action, but still quite at night. Great service and advice from staff, and excellent facilities

Fantastic location!Posted Oct 22, 2013
Location is fantastic- right behind Hollywood Blvd and so close to shopping mall. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Little extra touches like free breakfast, free wi-fi and complimentary water bottles in room were all very much appreciated. We would definitely stay again!

Brilliant location, great value for moneyPosted Sep 26, 2013
Cons: Updated bathrooms
Location: Round the corner from the Hollywood/Highland metro and shopping mall, 10 mins to supermarket, 5 mins to Chinese Theatre.
The location was fantastic, the staff were so friendly & helpful especially Patricia the breakfast lady. The apartments are all that you require, although in need of a lick of paint & updated bathrooms. Very happy & would definitely stay there again & highly recommend it.

Great Location for a Great Price!!!Posted Sep 22, 2013
Pros: Spacious room which included a kitchen with a full size fridge, microwave and free wi fi.

Location: Location is great, close to Walk of Fame, Chinese Theater, Madame Tussaud's etc.
This is quite an older hotel but we had a great stay here. Staff were very helpful and its located in a quiet area.

Nice hotel very close to hollywood walk of famePosted Sep 16, 2013
Pros: Staff, facilities.
Location: Chinese theatre, Hollywood sign viewing platform, hollywood walk of fame, hollywood museum. Very busy area.
The lady on reception when we arrived was brilliant. A cold glass of water on arrival, very helpful with directions (particularly local buses) had arranged for air conditioning to be on in the bedroom as the temperature had reached over 100f (40c) and very welcoming. The room was a little dated decor wise but had everything we needed and the beds were really comfortable. We really liked having clearly defined areas, i.e dining table, kitchen, sitting room and separate bedroom and bathroom. The area is very easy for buses and the subway. We came from Santa Barbara by train and were easily able to transfer from the station to nearby Hollywood/highland subway station which is a 5 min walk from the hotel. It is very close to the bustle of hollywood walk of fame etc. but a bit too like piccadilly circus. It has a small pool and rooftop area and the continental breakfast is actually rather nice and can be eaten where it is served, in your room, on the small patio at the front, on the rooftop etc. There is a computer for residents to use but it can be tricky to get on it as it is in demand even late at night. It has its' own underground parking for those with cars which is probably a bonus for those driving. The area is very central to hollywood sights but for us was a little too busy. Although at first sight the hotel seems a little old fashioned decor wise, this is a well equipped well run hotel with helpful and friendly staff, and good transport links.
