Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 June 2014

My sister and I spent five nights here after travelling the USA for over four weeks. This was definitely the best hotel we stayed in the whole trip.
The staff were fantastic. They couldn't do enough for you. Free breakfast and drinks and snacks available whenever you asked.
Accommodations were excellent. Only drawback was the number of stairs as I have a troublesome knee, but once I mentioned this we were immediately moved to a ground floor room. Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in LA.

Lovely, hotel and staff. Spacious room, clean and comfortable bed. What I liked was that all of the staff were happy, helpful and genuinely seemed to enjoy working there. Visible management presence, but they took the time to check guests were happy and also cleared the breakfast dishes away !! Complimentary snacks/ soft drinks 24/7 and free laundry service which I took advantage - it was returned tied up in brown paper ( I even took a picture of it to show people back home!). I must admit I was sceptical when I saw all of the positive reviews, as generally you can't please all of the people all of the time, but I think the staff at the Magic Castle Hotel have found a way to do this.

Room Tip: The hotel is located on a busy road, so if this is a problem for you I would ask for a room at the b...

Where to start we stayed for 7 nights in may. From check in to check out the service was outstanding the staff are so helpful and friendly they couldn't do enough for you . I had read the reviews which made this number 1 on tripadvisor and found it hard to believe it was that good but it was. It is only a small hotel more like an apartment building but don't let that put you off we had a balcony room overlooking the pool and it was fantastic 2 massive TV's a small kitchen lounge and dining area . You are a 2 minute walk to Chinese theatre and a 1 minute walk to the starline tours pickup point {it take's longer waiting to cross the road than get to walk of fame} This hotel is just near everything warner bro's 10 min drive same for universal and paramount .If we ever go back to Hollywood again I wouldn't stop anywhere else wish i had found this little gem when we visited here before. Yeah you get FREE snacks, laundry, dvd's to watch and breakfast but that is just a bonus .I can not rate this hotel high enough if you go to Hollywood you would be mad to stop anywhere else. Yeah there are more modern {and more expensive} hotels in Hollywood but you wouldn't get the service you get here.

Room Tip: 205 was a great room

My partner and I stayed here for 2 short days before we left LA to fly back home to Australia! This place was amazing we felt so relaxed and the service there was incredible. The room we stayed in was fabulous compared to the previous places we have stayed during our 5 week travels. Complimentary breakfast, snacks and movies to top it off. We will be recommending this place to all our friends and family. Thank-you magic castle for your great hospitality.

Great place in the heart of Hollywood, just 3 minutes walk from all the touristy action, but totally away from it as well. Great rooms facing a lovely pool. A really happy place because of great staff especially those at the front desk who go all out to help in every which way. They are led by an extremely visible GM Gretchen who personally supervises. Special mention of Nicola (Nick) and Marcus who really went all out to help on each and every request.
Rooms are really nice, neat and clean but don't go in expecting a 5 star room.
Lots to see on TV including complimentary movies and lots of complementary snacks, soft drinks and chocolates whenever you ask for at the front desk. A totally family place.
Good wifi and complimentary breakfast and laundry.
Hope there are more like Magic Castle in other cities. Thanks Guys!

Room Tip: Pool facing room.

My husband and I with our 4 yo twin girls stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and from the moment we arrived we knew our stay was going to be fantastic. It was an unusually warm day and were were greeted by Nick with a cold drink. The Magic Castle is a simple hotel but the service, amenities and staff make it better than any 5 star hotel. The unlimited snack service, the icy poles by the pool, the continental breakfast, the endless free movies and DVDs and not to mention for Mum, the free laundry service. Just amazing you drop off a bag of dirty clothes and they come back washed, ironed, wrapped with a bow and lavender. It's all the little extras that make the stay so memorable. The location of the hotel is great, literally a 5 min walk to Hollywood blvd shops and restaurants. Thank you to Darren and the staff at the Magic Castle for making my family and I feel so welcome. Keep up the amazing work and look forward to seeing you again sometime soon :) Jessica & Family
