Hollywood Hills Hotel
Ranked #145 of 354 Hotels in Los Angeles
Reviewed 9 August 2011

At first sight we were not very happy with our suite at the Hollywood Hills. It was old, not very clean and the direct environment of the suites is a bit odd. In fact these are normal rental appartments that are leased by the Magic Castle Hotel for the season. Guests can use the more than excellent services of the Magic Castle Hotel, but in the Hollywood Hills itself there are no services whatsoever. You have to get down to the Magic Castle Hotel for breakfast, internet, reception etc. and it is a walk down (or up!) a steep hill. We were advised by the management not to walk this route alone in the dark. The hotelshuttle brought us up the hill during te evening. There is however a nice swimmingpool and the rooms are very large, the view is amazing and the prices for a large suite in downtown Hollywood is fine. Combined with the superservice of Magic Castle Hotel we did have a nice stay.

I love finding hidden gems! HHH is situated on the hill between The Magic Castle and Yamashiro in a spot close enough to fully experience all that Hollywood has to offer without having to listen to it all day and night. The pool is lovely, quiet and clean (bonus pagoda!) and the room made my friends and I feel like we had a little apartment in the hills. Comfy beds, great balcony (that view!) and a kitchen with a fridge, stove and stocked with dinnerware and utensils really made us feel right at home. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful to boot and offered a shuttle to get you up and down the hill if you wanted to walk into Hollywood. Loved it! I'll be back soon!

A sister hotel of the Magic Castle? Really. There is a good view and the free snacks are the same deal that one gets at the Magic Castle and the staff - same as the Magic Castle are wonderful. And that's where it stops.

Yes, it is less expensive and the price point has been set based on it's short comings. However --- if you are use to fine hotels like the Magic Castle - you will not be happy at the Hollywood Hills. Don't do it.

I'm a loyal and gung-ho fan of the HHH and usually stay here when in Hollywood. You can't beat the view, the bed, the location... But I must admit that the mildew stains (I'm sure it isn't actual mildew, but the stains left over from scrubbing it so hard forever), the constant smell of gas in the kitchen (that they say isn't a gas leak), the flaking/chipping paint on the balcony and certain areas... well, it's beginning to irritate me. I mean, over the years I've been staying there, they've had plenty of time to do some minor renovations (really, just minor ones). Replace a curtain if it's torn, or re-caulk the tiles in the bathroom. Things like that. But, nope. Nothing's really changed. It always looks the same. A little worn, but with a pretty view. Kind of like Hollywood.

The rooms are actually a portion of an apartment complex. We rented a one bedroom King unit. It had a full kitchen with eating area, separate bedroom, and a very nice deck with view of the city. It is an older facility with signs of wear (mildew in bathroom - draperies worn and drooping) but was otherwise very clean. The bed was very comfortable. Units have high speed wired Internet in the living room area. You have use of the pool facilities and can attend the Magic Castle private club as a perk for renting. Very helpful staff. One quirk; you check in at the Magic Castle Hotel at the bottom of the hill. The apartment complex is up on the hill above and is not set up for pedestrian access. There is free parking near the units but if you want to walk down the hill into the Hollywood Boulevard area, which is just one block south, you need to call the front desk for a ride down the hill. Stop at the front desk to get a ride back up the hill.

Room Tip: Very reasonable price particularly if you are staying a week or more due to cooking failities.

Upon checking in for a 5 night stay our room had not been occupied for some time it had seemed. The apartment/suite was dusty and had to kill about a dozen spiders which were mostly on the ceiling corners. We called the front desk and advised them and the next day the room was spotless, we were also generously comped and treated to a buffet of leftover goodies left in our room by the housekeeper after each day that we got back from our daily activities.

The view is priceless and right behind is the Yamashiro castle which we loved walking up to each night and looking out at the city. As you drive up to your hotel it has a coded gate which adds a sense of security especially if you are parking a nice pricey sports car in your very own designated spot. There is a continental B-Fast down at the base hotel(Magic Castle Hotel)in morning which isn't spectacular yet the staff try their best to please which more than makes for any of the faults you may experience during your stay.

A big thank you to the staff for pampering us!
