“Nice place for an eccentric break”
Reviewed 26 October 2012

This place is absolutely super! If you're in the area, and you need a few days to stay in Hollywood, absolutely take this place into regard! The owners of the place, William and Nina, are absolutely the most pleasant people to be around. William usually is around the kitchen in the morning - Very interesting person. I loved talking with him. The breakfast was plentiful with yogurt, milk, breads, etc. The rooms are really neat. I stayed in the Maverick which is sort of small, but really full of exciting thing that make the place neat. I also stayed in the Biarritz. Wow, what a neat room. Parking is tight, but thats normal for any place in LA. I swear, you will not be disappointed at all with the place. Do indeed try these folks. You won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: I stayed in the Maverick and the Biarritz, and both were absolutely super! I would guess any choice...

If nostalgia for the "old Hollywood" has set in or if you are too young to remember the old, but interested in the contemporary, a stay at the Hollywood B&B is perfect for you. The decor, though a bit "crafty", reflects the decorative skill of your hostess Nina and William's construction skills have crafted a very comfortable setting. The beds are good, the bathrooms are great, the pool area provides a nice setting for post-touring relaxation and the breakfast is sumptuous and scrumptious with every conceivable amenity for a cold buffet.

This place is awesome...w. Hollywood truley deserves this b&b and this b&b deserves Hollywood.
Situated towards the bottom of the hills this establishment has breathtaking views from a beautifully done pool area with plenty of art work and an assortment plants/cactus. Lounge chairs and chairs And tables, spaced out enough where guests have their own nook. The pool area along with the room comfort and it's character really give this house a 5 star rating. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped with every appliance and a sweet selection of breakfast, coffee and teas. William is a good man that truley loves his b&b and it really shows in the pride taken to keep this house cozy and comfortable. I will surely return in my next LA trip.

Room Tip: Take advantage of this great location and explore the hills by walk/jog or car by day and nightly vi...

Nina and william have created an extraordinary experience. From the moment you turn into the driveway off Hollywood blvd you enter a new and fantastical world only they could have designed. Nina is the artist painstakingly festooning every possible surface with brilliantly colored stone paint and tile supplemented with one of a kind statutary lamps tchotchkes maps wall Hangings collected by william over a number of years continents and habitats. The web pictures don't do justice to what is truly a wonderful arrangement and assortment of artistic pieces. It goes without saying the rooms bathes and fixtures are first class five star b and b apppointmens. Breakfast nutritional as well and check out the pool

The reviews that have bee written, express our feelings totally. We stayed in the largest, "Premier" room upstairs. The only thing we would have changed, was to be able to have the bedroom a little cooler; it was pretty warm sleeping. William and Nina are wonderful hosts. The breakfast is healthy...cereal, granola and toppings, bagels and toast. Juice, fresh fruit, milk and coffee are also available. The bus stops right in front of their house. Since we could park our car there for FREE...why would we want to take it out and park it? bus 217 goes by about every 15 minutes, cost $1.50 and takes you right along Hollywood Boulevard. This would be a FABULOUS place to have a little friend/family reunion.

I would definitely stay here anytime I was going to be in Hollywood!

Room Tip: Take the bus...you can also hook into the whole metro system, by getting off the bus near the Dolby...

Great place, well looked after, breakfast - could not get better and I would ask if there is a better B & B in LA??? I doubt it. Situated on Hollywood Boulevard, just 20/25 mins walk from the main Hollywood attractions (Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre, Kodak Theatre etc) or you can take a local bus. Near lots of restaurants. Its heaven away from all the hectic life of LA. Excellent hosts, made us very welcome and advised on all aspects of our visit.
Attractions - did the Warner Brothers visit, this was OK if you knew all the American TV soap programmes so was a little disappointed being a Brit. The Stars tour/LA tour was good but be prepared to photograph the 'front gates' of their homes! Santa Monica and Venice Beach is a must though.

Room Tip: View the B and B website to select a room, although there are not many, they are all excellent and...

Stayed here for one night on our way east from Hawaii. We arrived bleary eyed from an overnight flight but were warmly greeted with breakfast. They got our room prepared as soon as the prior occupant left. We were in Biarritz. It was spacious for us and our 14 year old son on a rollaway(comfy). Great bathroom. The pool is right outside the door and is well laid out with a full outdoor bath/shower as well. We slept like the dead, it was quiet despite location
