My wife and I stayed a total of four nights. Two before our son's wedding and two nights afterwards. The wedding was fabulous but exhausting and my wife's comment on our return to Hollywood Pensione was that it felt like coming home. Gayle Eisemann, the innkeeper, is warm, friendly and solicitious. Our room was extremely comfortable and we enjoyed the common living room, the updated (as was explained) kitchen and the outdoor balcony. Will definitely want to stay there when we visit Los Angeles again. And that will be soon.

We had an amazing time here. Erika and Dougland, the owners, go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay, and they've thought up just about everything they could do to make this place feel like your home away from home. They are accessible without being intrusive, and they have clearly put a lot of love and style into this place. We didn't want to leave! A highlight is Dougland's fresh "pastry of the day" - every morning there's a home-baked goodie waiting for guests in the kitchen, as well as a well-stocked set of breakfast amenities - free coffee and tea, filtered water, fresh-squeezed orange juice you make yourself. This is more like an upscale fancy hostel than a hotel or B&B, in all of the good ways and none of the bad. If you are noise sensitive, this neighborhood could be a challenge for you, but the hosts have gone out of their way to address this issue: There are earplugs in your nightstand (didn't need them), white noise machine with great sound options, and an air purifier that adds its own white noise. Just remember you're in a big city, despite the outside looking quaint and cottage-like. There will be sirens, noisy neighbors, trash trucks, and traffic, but overall, this was a minimal intrusion compared to how peaceful and Zen'd out we felt during our three days here. Don't miss a hike through Griffith Park, just walking distance from the pensione. We can't wait to go back - this is a great find in a great part of L.A./Hollywood.

My husband and I stayed at Hollywood Pensione for 3 nights, at the end of a 3-week trip in Western America. What a lovely place to end holidays: peaceful house, very cosy room, organic bath produces… Erika & Douglas were very friendly, helpful and attentive towards their guests: their home-made cakes for breakfast were so good! The guests' kitchen and the balcony are shared and we had pleasant chats with a really nice person from Chicago while tasting a fine bottle offered by Erika & Douglas... We totally recommend this place!

My partner and I stayed at the Hollywood Penisone for a quick weekend get-a-way. We travel to LA often to visit family and friends and will make this our home away from home. Erika and Dougland, the hosts, we're extremely friendly. Love the extra touches, such as a personal refrigerator, bottle of preseco, and chocolates. The location is fantastic and off-street parking is a plus. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed.

Pleasant accommodations, friendly proprietors. If I have occasion to visit L.A. in the future, I will certainly check whether a room is available at the Hollywood Pensione.

This was my second stay at Hollywood Pensione, which I believe speaks for itself. The personal touch is what has made the trips for me. The hosts are always friendly and helpful, without hanging around too much. As a female travelling solo I was looking for both a location that was safe and convenient. During the day I was able to take a comfortable walk to the train, an even closer walk to a Grocery store and local village. On arriving home I could enjoy my own meal in the shared kitchen and then move to my own room for a luxurious bath, quick watch of TV, chat with my husband via skype and then restful sleep. The towels, amenities, mood all helped to make me feel at home. Erika and Dougald were able to answer all my questions, giving me confidence to negotiate my surroundings and as a generous touch even took me to the airport on my way home. Erika and Dougald are very conscious of wanting to make the experience for their guests a pleasant one. It’s an easy choise. This is not a hotel, but a much more personal experience.

A wonderfull stay at Hollywood Pensione. Rooms were spacious, close to Echo Park and Silverlake, with delicous home baked treats for breakfast!

Thank you so much Erika & Dougald for their hospitality to two very tired Aussies as they arrived sleep-deprived into LA. Although we arrived early, Dougald supplied a beer on the balcony while our room was made ready so that we could get in earlier and rest up. Dougald & Erika went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible, even down to baking daily for breakfast. Thanks again for a great stay.

We had an excellent experience staying at the Hollywood Pensione and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Los Angeles. We were in town for 5 nights from Chicago. We had originally only planned to stay at the Hollywood Pensione for part of the trip, but once we saw it, we decided to stay there the whole time. The house is beautiful, the rooms are spotless and tastefully decorated, the hosts are kind and helpful, and the location is perfect.

I must say, this is my gettaway to GET away from it all.... Erika and Doug make you feel at home and at ease... They run a HANDS off approach meaning, if you NEED them they are around, however ONLY if you need them... They don't micro manage the facility.... I feel like I'm staying at my friends house.... The bathroom is in the room, EVEN better! Full kitchen, awesome.... They is a patio, as I'm a smoker and a couple of blocks up the street from market and dinning... If you are travelling or just want a gettaway, I highly recommend... Oh... The Bliss spa is not far away, I had the best stay... And, hope to be back REAL soon...... Thanks Erika and Doug.......
