The staff and service personnel were outstanding and friendly. All facilities and the room were clean and well appointed, like-new furnishings everywhere. Management handled all my needs with courtesy and respect. I highly recommend this establishment to others looking for a home away from home, and a happy atmosphere. I have stayed in may places in West Hollywood and near the strip, this is the best value for the money. Breakfast took a little too long to prepare. People on the move would not be able to wait for the service, although the food was excellent.
Design Paper thin walls
very private, friendly and well cared for place, felt very much like home from home, highly recommended.
Hotel is located just off Sunset Boulevard so an excellent location to see the sights of Hollywood etc. The suites are beautifully presented and the staff are so welcoming it feels like being at home! I would certainly highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit LA.
The accomodation is quite ok. Simple, but with a lot of nice lovely things made to be a little adventure. Hollywood downtown is not a place you "must see" in details behind the curtains.
Location , kitchen style
It was nice to have a little 'home'from home' rather than another hotel. The place was really sweet an dlocation was good for exploring Hollywood, just minutes from Kodak theatre It was a little tricky having to negotiate the double bed which was in an alcove so meant climbing over partner to ge to the loo in the night!
great place for 2 couples to stay.
The feeling of being in a luxury home. Not at all like a hotel. The most comfortable bed on the planet.
We were initially surprised at the accomodation location, ie not at all glamorous. Then again, this is Hollywood, not Bel Air or Beverly Hills. Villa Delle Stelle is one of a few houses/bungalows located amongst other houses on a residential street, ie it is not part of a complex. The street itself is nothing special but the location and accommodation were excellent (between Sunset Blvd and Hollywood) so great for doing the Walk of Fame, Hollywood sign, Chinese Theatre etc. The Villa was unique and beautiful in it's decoration, with all the comforts of a home. It is not a traditional 'impersonal' hotel which is what we liked about it. Would recommend if you're looking for something that little bit different - living amongst the local Off street parking in front of the Villa was very tight for our Ford Edge jeep. Anything other than a small-ish car would have a problem. The owner (Brogan Lane) let us park outside her house though, just down the street.
The private patio
We stayed in "Le petit suite". You have everything around you to have a nice stay, little kitchen (if you want to cook yourself, what we did!). Nice little sofa witch satellite tv. The location is good, to reach everything loud AC
bra beliggenhet fin frokost
Pris Og beliggenhet, ok frokost ( paa naborestaurant vel aa merke ) Veldig slitt, webpresentasjonen er missvisende, Daarlig rehold og slitent interior
Laa sentralt, store gode senger, og rent.. Frokosten var ikke akkurat noe aa skryte av..
Store rom, gode senger, rent og pent.
Swimming pool and hot breakfast They have us 2 queen beds when we booked a king. The rooms we're a but run down too with no bathtub.
Kjempe bra beliggenhet!! Utrolig mye for lite pengene. Frokost, parkering og internet inkludert i prisen, kjempe bra!! Anbefales hvis en ikke er ute etter luksus, Walk of fame er 3min gange unna!!! Frokosten kunne vært bedre, men en forventer ikke mye for så billig, men skulle jeg anbefale noe, så en toast maskin nok vært en lur ide, ivertfall hvis en er fra europa..
Friendly and helpful staff. Very nice swimmingpool, clean and not crowded. Walkingdistance to Hollywood boulevard and shopping. Free internett access which worked well. Free parking and good availebility. Very small rooms. Thin walls, we could hear the people in the nighbour room when they were just talking. Filthy carpet. Breakfast was only cupcakes and waffels, no healty option.
I liked that it was right off Hollywood blvd, walking distance to D&B and other places to go out night we stayed Area was sketchy , people walking around looking like their on drugs
Overall 4night stay at LA Brea Inn was great would definitely stay again The room was clean but had a weird odor and parking is very hard to maneuver around.
A clean and comfortable apartment with all the necessities. Location was perfect for our needs and others who are there for Hollywood Blvd. For some this might be a little too closed to the grittier side of Hollywood.
Room was massive for a great price. Ideally located for what we had in mind. Quiet for being so close to Hollywood Blvd.
Price Thin walls, loud, beds as comfortable as the floor. Hallways smelled. Terrible parking.
Beds extremely uncomfortable and staff not very friendly at all. I attempted to call the front desk several times when we first arrived but no answer what's so ever (almost as if the guy at the front desk avoided talking to me)
Clean room, friendly staff, close to Hollywood Blvd Nothing
Nothing especially when you end up paying way too much to stay in a crack house There was no parking is there were people screaming up and down the hallways there was smoking in non-smoking rooms and when I woke up in the morning for the little sleep I could get there was throw up in the hallway and none of the employees had any idea I was even there not worth it never stay there again.
Nothing Parking was unavailable. Website said there would be parking. I use hotel.com a lot (need a room tonight) however I no longer will use unless I get a refund
Location No parking
It was 7 minutes from Universal Studios Hollywood. The room appeared to be really clean. Their very small parking garage was full. There wasn't any street parking available. We had to park down the street and pay $25 to park in that lot. For that $25 more, we could have stayed at a much nicer hotel that had parking for us. We were trying to save money by staying here and it cost us more because of parking.
Parking was horrible
the location (walking distance to subway stations), the friendly staff, the rooms hollywood blvd
Great breakfast, and very clean all around. Super helpful and friendly staff. Lockers in the room for your valuables and a really soft blanket! The beds were pretty good and there were sockets in between each bed with room for about 6 plugs. Everyone showers in the morning so the water gets really cold. This is not their fault though:)
Great location, great staff, and great people staying at this cool LA hostel Shared bathrooms are a bit awkward
Nothing Everything. The minute we get there we are ignored for a good 15min while the front desk flirted with a girl in the lobby. We are finally helped, but with attitude from the minute I opened my mouth to check in. Then we were told I had to have a passport to check in. I provided my out of state drivers license and was told that still wasn't enough. They had to have an itinerary showing that I planned on leaving. Nothing on the website we used to book advised anything about having to provide a passport and i have stayed at sevreal hostels around the US and never once did they require a passport to stay at their establisment. I even double checked my itinerary details when we left to see if there was any disclaimer. We ended up just cancelling our reservations as long as they didn't charge us. The guy checking us in was rude the entire time and had little to no care if we stayed. Never again.
So, to start off, let me say that this is not a hotel. It's a cheap way to share a room with seven other people and have a little base of operations to explore from. The thing that impressed me most was how clean it was. Every time I went anywhere in the hostel, there was someone cleaning something. I felt very comfortable in that. Also, having a lot of internationals around makes for great conversation. And the staff was very friendly and helpful. Great stay overall! The only thing I didn't really enjoy as much (and this really couldn't be avoided) was sharing a room with 7 people. Not that they weren't nice; just the awkwardness of not having much privacy and trying not to make much noise when you come in late or head out early. Other than that, it was great.
Great location and price. Pleasant staff. Very clean. Surprisingly quiet. Long flights of stairs to room. Very slippery tiled shower floors -- I fell! $2 extra for towels.
