I've stayed several times at the Pensione - usually alone for business. The rooms are meticulously appointed, the living spaces are accommodating and the hosts are warm and gracious. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the Pensione suited a larger group - 6 adults, visiting LA for a wedding. With multiple, private rooms we were able to relax and... More

I live in L.A. in a one bedroom duplex. My sister and her wild boys needed to stay at my place, so I took a little vacation in my hometown. Erika and Dougald were so lovely and warm and made an extra effort to accomodate me last minute - I feel like I've known them all my life!! To be... More

The is my second extended stay at the Hollywood Pensione. The first occurred three years ago when Erika and Dougal first opened shop. The Pensione is every bit as charming as I remembered it.

Hollywoodpensione, Owner at Hollywood Pensione, responded to this review

This review saddens me, and it's hard not to take it personally as this is my home and full-time business. Our one employee, Michelle, a meticulous woman who makes her own non-toxic, organic cleaning products was still cleaning when these guests arrived 2 1/2 hours early. We don't show our Pensione in this condition, but the guests asked to use... More

Erika and Dougal are friendly and generous hosts. The rooms are decorated more like a home than a hotel. The beds area very comfy and unique. They are made in Hollywood and I looked into purchasing one myself, but they are pretty pricey. The location is is very convenient - right in Hollywood and an easy drive to downtown. You... More

I shouldn't be telling you this because I would love this little gem to be known as little as possible in order for me to book a room whenever I'm over in LA.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
