My wife and I stayed one night at this unique Hollywood B&B offered on Orbitz. There was no front desk and the instructions upon arrival were unclear as to how to access the locked front door. I called the owner of the house and this did the trick. The host (home owner) was friendly. We were shown to our room, were given some simple instructions and rules and given a set of house keys. We were also told that breakfast was only to be served from 7-9 AM. We did not take advantage of it so we could not opine. Our bed was comfortable, the towels were clean and the counter tops we're neat. But the window blinds looked like they hadn't been dusted in quite some time. It deterred us from opening our windows. A definite highlight was the location; A 5 minute drive from Universal Studios and a 10 minutes drive from Hollywood's tourist center. One concern during our stay is that the owners of the house made us feel rushed to check out on Sunday. They had given us a courteous reminder at about 8:30 AM but then opened our unlocked room door at about 9:00 AM, probably assuming we had left. Also, we never really felt comfortable enough to explore the house and relax. Overall, if you are visiting the Hollywood area or are visiting Universal Studios and want to save some money, try this place out. But, if you are one that likes the consistent services and conveniences that a hotel provides, find a hotel and pay the extra cash.

Service was excellent! They were very accommodating to our requests. They went out of their way to make us comfortable. We felt like it was our home. The ambiance was very homey.

Great hospitality with a private room away from anyone else.

Stayed for a night. Enjoyed the hospitality. Want to recommend to others.

The owners are friendly enough. The cleanliness can be improved in the bathroom/rooms and it can use some freshner. The view is nice and the liberty to bring your own food is allowed. That was good. Breakfast is served but you have to specify what you would like to eat. Overall, it was good for a 2 day stay.

We booked our rooms here at the mini mansion on Orbitz. When we arrived, the host greeted us with a friendly smile and showed us to our rooms with a bathroom (unshared). The rooms were clean and the beds were super comfortable. Note: the layout of this nice home is a Bed and Breakfast and not a stand alone hotel. The hosts served up a delicious spread for breakfast including fresh fruit, bagels, eggs, sausage and cereal. All in all, they were kind and accomodating and very pleasant. The only issue I would like to clarify is there are many steps to the front door. The host was accommodating and allowed us to come through the garage, however, if you arent capable of climbing steps, this isnt the place for you. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality! It was a relatively inexpensive place (comparable to places in the area) complete with breakfast and close to all the local attractions.

Nice B&B close to Universal studio...room was clean and staff was friendly....

This place is very clean. It has the comfort of 4-star hotel. Tourist actions are close by: Universal Studios, Universal City Center, Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood sign, Griffith Park, Getty Museum, La Brea Tar Pits.

Los Angeles is an expensive place. So we kept our expectations low. This reasonably priced B&B was a big surprise. The room and amenities are clean and the place is comparable to a 4-star hotel. For guests who do not care for gym or pool, this place is recommended. By the way, there is a gym within half a mile. This B&B reminded me of B&B's in Europe where we stayed in our extensive trips to Europe. Just as we checked in we were provided chilled bottled water, orientation of the place and assurance of assistance with anything.

Very disappointed to get there and find out that this was someones house not a HOTEL, more like a B & B!

Thank you for your stay and your detailed comments. We are a bed and breakfast and try not to be like a hotel or motel. Most of the guests choose our lodging because we are so close to Universal Studios and other locations of attraction. We try to maintain our place to the highest standard of quality. We apologize for any deficiency and promise to promptly address them.

First, I want to thank you for giving us a chance to host you. Next, I also want to thank you for bringing to our attention the need to use our entrance through garage more often to minimize the climbing. The beautiful views surely come at a price. Beautiful (in heart) guests like you brighten our day. Guests often do not have time to write lengthy reviews - the good and bad side. You took the time to write because you wanted to help others. People reading your review will definitely benefit. Mini Mansion in Hollywood Hills is exactly what you have described.

Most people come to stay here because they like the homey environment of B&B. We take guests to store when they need something essential. We jump start their car, when their battery is dead. We do whatever we can to make their stay comfortable and enjoyable. I wish you told us what we could have done to make your stay a little more pleasant.
