We arrived at Hotel Erwin well before scheduled check in and was delighted when our room was ready for us! We had a room with 2 queen beds with our balcony facing an alley. It wasn't so bad as we could still see the beach from there. The room itself was cosy and had everything we needed. The beds were...

Stayed in june 2016 w family. Hotel is clean & fresh and the rooftop terrace w bar and restaurang is very popular...which is generating crowded elevators in the afternoon & evening. Valid parking w fee just across the street and so is the busstation. Rooms are ok w a "french balcony".

I love the Erwin!! It is hip, fun, super clean and super comfortable- with a lovely restaurant. So convenient for any trips to Venice- right off the beach- much more fun than conventional hotels in the area- close to fabulous food!! My go-to for Venice!!! I wouldn't stay anywhere else!!

This is an excellent hotel located right in Venice beach, a block away from the beach and a short walk to Abbott Kinney, which is a must visit if you like shopping! The hotel offers free passes to spin and yoga classes and has bikes on site that you can take out for a stroll. Our hotel room was huge...

I have written books about where to stay and where to eat in Europe. Sometimes I find small secret hideaways and I choose not to tell. Because it's a secret I want to keep to myself and close friends. If you travel the coast of Europe you will find escapes, restaurants, hotels, hideaways almost anywhere and everywhere where there is...

I got geo-targeted with an ad for Hotel Erwin when I was using my hotel tonight app. It was the nicest hotel by far that was being offered for under or around $200 a night. When I checked in, it seemed to me that the rooms popping up on hotels tonight are the remaining rooms they can't sell during the...

Didn't stay here, just came for drinks in their rooftop bar. Unfortunately it was closed because of the wind. We were disappointed especially when we have realized that my friend has lost a cell phone. However, a very nice receptionist was very responsive and kind in helping us find it. So this is just a thank you note really! :)...

Though the weather was not 🌞. The staff, Joey and Catalina at the front desk were amazing with suggestions for the rainy day. The Barlo ☕️ & breakfast is amazing. A must try. Though the Rooftop experience was not available due to weather. We will defend try again.

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood Profile
Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
