Although it's almost 5 years since we've been there, we still have fond memories of this location. And I will not forget the fever that kept me in the hotel room for a whole afternoon. Very friendly employees, were very helpful with directions and information about what to do, where to go. We stayed at the HHH back in August 2010 and paid $49 per night and today the price has more than doubled. The room price is $105 per night. How come?

It's kind of old-looking. But honestly, for the price you pay + free parking, it's totally worth it. I definitely liked the Hollywood Historic. It's not the cleanest hotel in the world, but it's definitely not disgusting. We paid $70ish bucks a night for a 1-king bed and 1 bath room. It was for a convention so all of the $50 a night rooms were taken. But $70 is still definitely worth it! You're in a little bit of a sketchy area but at least you'll have a relatively safe parking spot and a place to end the night. Definitely check it out if you want to stay in the heart of LA!

Went to this place to stay temporarily and look for apartments at the same time. Thought it would be great because its "historic", rated well and in hollywood essentially. By no means is it historic on the inside except for the bathrooms, hot water takes a night to turn on, sink is knee level. Room itself is ok except gets very humid, with furniture just randomly put and probably bought in bargain stores. Fridge was empty but that might be a non issue or obvious thing for some. Bed was comfortable though, nice a king sized. Service doesnt speak any English except the people at the front desk. Maid doesn't come in unless you specifically tell her with hanging notice on the door. Policies are not ideal and illogical. I thankfully found an apartment sooner than i thought and i tried to cancel the remaining days. Took arguing to do but i managed, but still had to pay for the day i canceled which is fine but they said i couldnt stay there for that remainder of the day (it was still 2pm) and couldn't spend the night either, becuase if i did i would have to pay for the following day. The area is awful as well, it is so not hollywood, it was Korea Town, full of spanish gangs, crappy restaraunts, (except the Nui Cafe) which was surprisingly refreshing and tasty. You are better off springing more for a higher priced hotel in Los Angeles like in Burbank or North Hollywood. Maybe if it was in a better location it'd be great

Very nice for being so affordable! We got a small room with queen bed, mini fridge, coffee maker, TV, closet with iron and iron board, hair dryer in the bathroom. Stayed 6 days. Everyone was nice and accommodating. This is a good central location of LA. Checkout time was noon. There is a super good and cheap Thai delivery place that comes to the hotel- Khun Dom. There is also a hair salon and cafe in the building. I would recommend it.

Had I nice stay, easy to find, free parking and free wifi. Has hair drier, fridge and coffee maker, large tv, comfortable beds and air con. We had no problems and the retro decor is lovely. If you like old hollywood and it's faded glamour it's a great place to stay, views of the hollywood sign from the street, and probably some rooms, though not ours. Liked it enough to book to stay again in a week. Bargain.

Great hotel, great location, staff were friendly, cafe in the hotel was very good. Definitely have to come back. Bathroom a little run down but that was all. Neighborhood was good to felt safe walking at night. Down the road from paramount studios.
