Excellent place to visit Los Angeles

For its price, this hotel is very good. The location is not bad, there are several buses coming near enough to the hotel. Moreover, the hotel is located minutes away from the Paramount Studios. The room was clean, but lacking some things (trash in the room and a second nightstand). The staff was very helpful.

Unique & Historical

Clean, friendly and a great value. Hotel has free parking in the rear and is an easy 5 minute walk to Paramount Studios on Melrose. It is not near all the activities of Hollywood Central area and you will need to drive to that area, but we had no problem finding parking. Staff throughout the day was friendly and there is a cafe 2 doors down. Found it convenient to other areas of LA.

Bring quarters if you want to use the parking meters, although they also take credit/debit cards. Read the signs well.

Interesting historic hotel

Stayed here a night and enjoyed it. Not in the greatest part of town, but it seemed safe. Definitely has a historic look and feel, photos of celebs line the hallways. The room was as expected for the price. No complaints, would stay again.

Great deal and convenient location.

Extremely approachable staff. Very flexible with checkout and check in times. Wifi was slow but free. Room was clean and simple. Old time feel in a good atmosphere.

A very pleasant stay!

I checked in during the afternoon and clerk gave me a room on parking lot side. This was much appreciated as the street side has noisy vehicle traffic on Melrose Ave. Just like the hotel name sounds, it is older and noise above and in the hallway is noticeable. On the plus side, the price is great, location is good, internet was solid, room was clean, comfortable bed, free parking (plenty available). Hallways were wonderfully decorated with photos of classic movie stars. I am a big fan of the 1920's LA architectural style! I give HHH a big thumbs up!

Youre best suited to rent a vehicle. I had a memorable drive on Hollywood blvd, Sunset blvd & Melrose Ave. You can feel the history of show biz!

First Trip to LA

I'm a person that loves nostalgia and this hotel was just that. I could feel the history of Hollywood and it was cool that the hallways were adorned by old photos of actors and venues from the heyday of Hollywood. The hotel has been updated, but they still preserved the historic energy. The room was comfortable and had just what I needed, fridge, t.v. and a bed. There is a Cafe in the building and a small local store next door to grab a drink or snacks. If you need gas, there is a gas station across the street. I didn't stay in the room too much. Great location to hit hot spots, restaurants and downtown LA. Just down the street from Paramount Pictures. Also have a great view of the Hollywood Sign from the fire escape window on the third floor.
