We loved our three nights here. The room is small-ish but clean and cosy, the bed was really comfortable. The kitchen and living room make it feel like your own apartment. The coffee is awesome, the muffins & fruit are plenty for breakfast and are available for late sleepers. The street is quiet & leafy but walking distance to some great bars on Franklin. The driveway is tight but it's an old place so who cares. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All three rooms look very similar in style & size

We enjoyed our stay at Hollywood Pensione. We were warned about the parking, but we were able to park our mid-size SUV just fine. Upon arrival, it was very hot outside, but luckily the room temperature was just right. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean. Overall, we felt that the room was a bit smaller and more outdated than it appears on the photos, but still a nice enough room.

Confirmation e-mail alerted me about extremely tight parking, so we got a compact car. I was also informed that our bed would not be made, provided a code to get in, and informed that breakfast (fruit and muffins) would be available between 8-9am. Really.
So we arrived 11pm, no phone charging next to bed, but Bed and pillows were very comfortable.
Pumpkin coffee was good. Towels were way above average. No newspaper and the 7-Eleven down the street doesn't get their newspaper delivery until almost 8am, which provided multiple opportunities to squeeze in and through that tiny driveway.
Best things: Pumpkin coffee, towels, pillows
Worst things: announced time for breakfast and then only fruit and muffins.

Dear MBW,

Thank you for your review. I wanted to respond to a few of your complaints. Our beds are meticuloulsy made before each guest arrives and I am not sure where or how you would receive communication informing you that your bed would NOT be made. If you could please contact the office and let us know that would be appreciated. When guests arrive after 5 pm we give them a code to check in as to allow them to check in anytime and not worry about their arrival times. We also have alarm clocks with dual usb ports next to every bed which allow guests to charge any device via usb. Our breakfast is continental (as described in our listings) and features various muffins, fruit, jams, jellies and a full coffee and tea bar. Our breakfast is served between 8 am and 9 am (and almost always before 8 am), but remains for several hours after it is put out and is not just available for one hour. We are going to update this on our boards and information so to be even more clear and not confuse future guests. In the future if you have questions or are confused about something while staying with us please simply call the front desk or knock on the the front door. Thank you again for staying with us.

We enjoyed our four days at the Pensione. Everything is eco-friendly and quiet neighborhood, ample continental breakfast and nice rooms all added up to an A+ stay. The hotel is close to everything! I actually enjoyed being in charge of bed making.

Thanks Gayle for being a wonderful host, we had a great 2 nights here. Great location in Weset Hollywood, appreciated the fruits for breakfast and the amazing coffee machine! Bed was really comfortable. We accidentally locked ourselves out one morning before we were leaving and had to wake Gayle up to help us and she did so without complaint - thank you so much and sorry for the trouble!

This delightfuil pensione is a real gem in the heart of the craziness of Hollywood! Gayle has provided visitors with a refuge, complete with full gourmet chef's kitchen if you want to stay in and cook (ie get away from the endless burgers and nachos!!). The location is safe, quiet and ambient. If you are a lover of muffins, there are splendid large muffins provided, along with fruit, each morning for breakfast. The coffee machine dispenses surprisingly good coffee too, in a country whee good coffee is hard to find!
