Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Hollywood should be on ever travelers bucket list of must see and do! Where movie magic comes to life!
    Go see all the places where your favorite movie was filmed!

    Iconic Hollywood sign which does not like up at night. Hollywood boulevard the street never sleeps and walk of stars. TLC Chinese theatre with stars hands/feet. Universal studios park and back lot studios! So much more!

    Only down fall to this area, is it dirty like many citys. Homeless is all over sadly rampant. There is tents set up every corner, roads, or nook. It incredibly sad. Been many places this is one worst. I am sure all harmless but take caution for those who my be unstable.

    The Hollywood Hills are a beautiful area. The homes are beautiful. The landscaping is beautiful. The hills are beautiful. We had a rental car and driving through the area was fun and worthwhile. Recommended when in the area.

    It is like a hidden gem amid Los Angeles lights and hustle. It offers some sort of calm and convenience and it is very appropriate for families and kids, where the lake has many nice creatures.

    Good, healthy, light mixed fajitas and meatball soup. Everything was really good there including the service. However, the parking fee ($17.50) was unexpected and exorbitant!!!

    Felt like another country. Felt kind of sketchy at first but that’s if you’re used to living in “posh” places or safe neighborhoods. The homeless here really look needy. I was going here specifically for linen fabric. There’s TONS of stores that hold similar fabric. Some of the linens I got seemed legit and some are probably blends that they passed as 100% linen. Michael Levine store seemed the most legit but has the most “legit” prices to match. Other stores you can bargain a bit, here not at all. Some of the linen fabric was lower than normal and some typical prices you’d find online and or Etsy. Finding parking is easy but pricy. I parked in a lot and an attendant guided me… I struggled wondering if I was getting hustled or not.. but all was well. I did visit the clothing section (Santee alley..) overwhelming as well and full of that Miami Latina and hoochie type style of that is what you’re looking for. Hard to find modest clothing (like barely anything) I was alone and felt fine as I kept it moving but I think the experience is better if you have friends (you can feel safer)

    Overall feels like you’re stepping in NYC, bring your bartering skills and know what you want. Prepare for excess walking and lots of stores!

    pretty busy and not super pedestrian friendly >_< there was a lot of construction when i visited which made it far less walkable than normal and the crowds can be unbearable if you visited during peak hours. and good luck finding parking …

    I was here in the area for BTS concert and had to do Koreatown. While I didn't have much time I was able to eat a good meal and shop at the Koreatown Plaza which is a mini mall dedicated to Korean products think awesome food court, skin care lines, music, Kpop related items, and clothing stores.

    It's a bit far from the subway station if you don't like to walk but you can enjoy stopping in different food places along the way.

    I always wanted to check this site out since I was a youngster. It very interesting with all the different animals that had been caught and recovered from the tar pits. We also had the opportunity to see the technicians work on a fossil in their lab. It is neat that they built the city around this landmark.

    What a lovely surprise this place was! Just a few minutes from downtown LA, easy parking, a fun little gift shop and an interesting guided tour of the Victorian houses. Tom, our guide, was delightful, friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend visiting this place.

    We began our visit to this delightful neighbourhood at the grand Mulholland Memorial Fountain after taking Bus 96 from Downtown to Riverside / Los Feliz. The fountain commemorates William Mulholland who designed and oversaw the 233 mile long aqueduct that brought water to a dry city over a century ago.

    We continued our stroll along the lovely winding roads. We saw Walt Disney's First House in LA and then continued to the marvellous Lovell Health House, from where there are panoramic vistas over the city.

    Ennis House is an architectural marvel. Designed by the famous Frank Lloyd Wright, it is well worth seeing.

    Along the way we gazed at Griffith Observatory, and taking a pathway we ended our morning there, enjoying the tremendous edifice and the attractions within.

    I say hidden in plain sight because it's quite challenging to actually locate this area on most online maps or described in a distinct way as a destination. It's actually an art walk as part of the Disney Concert Hall, but around its building exterior. By name, it's technically a part of the State of California community parks.

    You find it nestled among the facades of the Frank Gehry designed Disney Concert Hall. As you walk up the main entrance steps, stay to your left and just follow the meandering concrete path. One of the first things that will stand out are the unique trees spread throughout. They originate mostly from other countries and are individually marked.

    As you continue you'll find a circular design close by. Along its circular, winding line you will find names of contributors. I understand some people will walk this path as part of mental self therapy. Continue walking and you'll find more open space dotted with plants, trees, and art work.

    Around the back you will come to a "naked coral tree" with the Disney Hall facade as the background. Almost to the right is the more well known Blue Ribbon Garden and the equally known "A Rose for Lilly" fountain, also designed by Frank Gehry. It's made up of 8000 royal delft china shards. Feel free to throw a lucky coin in. Again, notice the lists of contributors engraved in the floor stones around it.

    It's a little gem of a tour you can take on your own for free. Actually, there's a video self tour on the web that visually walks you through all this. However, it's best seeing and experiencing in real person. It's a nice treat one can enjoy while visiting all the other major museums in the Art District of L.A.

    I was on my way up to Hollywood and decided to stop here for a little bit and look around the area after hearing so much about it. There are so many Victorian homes in the area in varying degrees of condition (some are beautifully maintained, others need a bit of TLC) and it has a fascinating history as one of the oldest suburbs in LA!

    Some individual houses have gained their own notoriety by being used in popular films and television series over the years, which makes sense given the neighborhood’s proximity to Hollywood. One house for example was used in the “Charmed” series while another one just down the street was used in Michael Jackson’s iconic music video for “Thriller.”

    It was a pretty short trip and I walked around for about a half hour but it is definitely worth a visit if you’re into Victorian architecture! Just try to be respectful of the residents living here since it still is an actual neighborhood.
