This place was a dream. We stayed in the Pink Room (which I highly recommend because of its massive and amazing balcony looking up at the Hollywood Hills). What a bargain! Breakfast was awesome. Elaine was polite, Avik was a wild man, and their friend and helper Jeri (sp?) was a dream. Jeri actually booked our stay and when we arrived, she helped us with great places to visit and eat and things to do. You HAVE to eat at Cheebo's which is a few blocks away on Sunset Blvd. Elaine's is in a neat neighborhood where jasmine grows and perfumes the streets. It's safe and convenient and I would highly recommend it. I thought it was fascinating that Avik is the longest-standing member of the Hollywood Foreign Press and a huge fan of Gustav Mahler. I found him entertaining. Their place is casual and they have a sweet dog who guards the foot of the stars. The room was comfortable, clean and well-maintained and it was just like magic watching the sun hit those cedar trees in the hills. We felt we had an authentic Hollywood experience by staying there.

We have stayed for 8 nights in Elaine's Bed and Breakfast in West-Hollywood and we had a wonderfull time! The rooms (we slept in both) are great, both with private bathroom (we wish we had such great plumbing at home). The pink room is huge, with a large private balcony ('deck') to sit outside and experience the complete Hollywood athmosphere. The neighbourhood is quiet and we slept and rested as if we were at home. Elaine and Avik are great hosts and very helpfull with any questions. The place is right near the Hollywood strip and you will find plenty of places to eat around the corner on Sunset Boulevard (check out Cheebo's: very hip, a little loud, but great food).

The setting in a quiet neighborhood between Hollywood and Sunset Blvds was gorgeous, the hosts were colorful, friendly and helpful on advice and stuff (loaning sunscreen and a corckscrew). The big bedroom has a tremdendous backporch overlooking the Runyan Canyon. Comfortable bed, nice dogs.
