First off I would classify this "hotel" as a Bed & Breakfast and not a hotel as such. That aside we had a great time here, the location is excellent in a nice quiet and safe area with easy access to the main hollywood attractions. We did not have a car and still got everywhere we wanted either walking or using various public transport which are all close by.

The room was large, comfortable and clean. Use of the shared areas (kitchen, balcony & lounge) was great. Overall the place is clean and tidy but showing some signs of wear. The hospitality and provided breakfast was also excellent.

For the price and the location you certainly can't beat this place. I highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The Bamboo room we stayed in is the best of the 3 rooms.

Our experience in this little boutique hotel really was fantastic. It makes a brilliant change to your average over crowed and accident prone city hotel that cares only for the money. The couple that run this accommodation welcome you into their home and offer all of the advice and local knowledge you could possibly need. When we arrived a couple of hours early there had been a water leak, but not only were they prompt in resolving the situation, they apologized profusely and brought a bottle of wine up to the room for us. The rooms may not be to everyone's taste as they are very simplistic, but everywhere is clean and tidy and both me and my partner loved the décor. I really can't thank Erica and Dougald for such a lovely stay in their hotel, for all of their advice and for treating us like friends rather than just customers. A really personal experience that I won't ever forget.

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing, but the Zen room has a slightly smaller bathroom so would be advised for a solo traveller.

We usually stay at some cheap hotel when we travel to LA, but this time we decided on something different. Hotel Pensione was the perfect decision. Dougald was extremely friendly and helpful, and the room was beautiful. When we arrived, Dougald helped us with our bags and gave us a tour of the house. They were generous enough to give us a bottle of sparkling wine and our own filtered water pitcher in our mini fridge. The communal living area and kitchen were very clean and comfortable, as well. Our bed was extremely comfortable, and the room and bathroom were very clean and decorated beautifully.

I was afraid that since it's an older house and our floors creaked that we might be kept up by other guests, but we never heard a peep! It was a wonderful atmosphere to stay in, and we will definitely return whenever we travel to LA for vacation. It is a great value, and we can't thank Dougald and Erika enough.

The Hollywood Pensione was definitely a great find. We arrived in town hours before check-in, so our room wasn't ready yet. However, Erika and Dougald greeted us before 8 am and took our bags for us. They offered to put them in our room later that day when it was ready!

The rest of our stay was filled with the same level of customer service. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the breakfast was superb. We liked how we had a full kitchen available to us and the other guests, our own mini fridge, and parking behind the house. (Note to drivers: they have a very narrow driveway, so navigating to the parking area can be a challenge.) We even got complimentary wine, chocolates, tea, and coffee. This is definitely a place we'd be willing to stay at in the future!

We travel to LA once or twice a year to visit family, preferring a B&B to a chain hotel. This year was the first time we stayed at the Hollywood Pensione. What a find! Comfortable in every way. Erika and Dougald make you feel like you are old friends. Off street parking, and even better, easy access to public transportation if you prefer.
