We loved our time at the Magic Castle Hotel. Our family of five slept very comfortably in the suite and the kids loved all the amenities the hotel offered. As did the adults! What's not to love about free ice cream and soda/drinks available 24/7 and snacks upon request. Despite the chilly weather, we enjoyed the heated pool which was...

It's not a 5-star hotel - the physical place itself won't allow me to give it a 5-star review. Can't get around that. It's an old place with - at least ours was - small rooms and a 50's kind of chic. But the staff is absolutely top notch, considerate, and flexible. I don't think it's an exaggeration to say...

Wow what a fun place to stay! If you can look past the tiredness of the property and the rooms you will have an absolute blast here! (If you have your heart set on modern shiny luxury then this isn't for you) The staff were amazing and more than accomodating and the room was the biggest by far we had...

Though not officially related to the Magic Castle (and located adjacent to that property) this is a well kept, friendly hotel. It is well located for walking in Hollywood and a good spot if you are thinking about the Hollywood Bowl. Looking forward to returning.

This little gem in such an easily walkable location for Hollywood boulevard was a terrific find. My daughter and family were staying there while I stayed with duster, we wanted to join them, it's great! I have never received such kind attention to detail in any other hotel, a real stress reliever when staying with a baby. Little duck and...

We stayed here in January at the end of our USA holiday. The service was incredible - they made our family feel so welcome and at home. Complimentary ice cream and sodas were on offer plus many sweets for the kids and we can't forget the popcicle phone. The pool area was welcoming and fun. The staff really could not...

I love, love, love this hotel! The staff are wonderful and very accommodating! It is in a great location, close to a lot of attractions. They do your laundry for free and give you free snacks! You can also go to the Magic Castle if you stay here!

We stayed for 2nights on our way home from the UK. We arrived late at night and were greeted by John who made us feel instantly at home with welcome lemonade bubbles and amazing aroma of cinnamon in the foyer (aroma from cider available). We had a 1 bedroom that was the perfect size for a family of 4. In...

This hotel is one of the most enjoyable places we have stayed. It's a little funky, mid-century converted apartment complex. The rooms are large, the bed very comfortable, the service amazing! Our room, in a back corner, has been very quiet. This morning we enjoyed a magician in the courtyard. The hotel is located two blocks from a metro station...

I was visiting friends in San Diego and we decided to spend a night in Hollywood for some fun activity. The hotel is very interesting; sort of rustic and adventurous. We were on the 3rd floor (or hill rather) and had to call a shuttle each time to get down to ground level. I enjoyed the complimentary breakfast (nothing exciting...

Hello, You actually did not stay at the Magic Castle Hotel. You stayed at the Hollywood Hills Hotel. It is a little confusing, as you checked in at the front desk of the Magic Castle Hotel...then drove 1/4 mile up a hill to another hotel. We share a front desk. I'm going to ask TripAdvisor to kindly move this review...
