Magic Castle Hotel

Pros: The staff. Just so helpful. The central location
Cons: Modernisation of rooms. Breakfast content
Location: Brilliant location, everything Hollywood is close at hand. You need transportation to visit the wider attractions of LA
This was a perfectly adequate hotel, very close to the Hollywood Blvd. The staff were very helpful and accommodating in every way. The free mid day snacks and ice cream were a surprising bonus which we probably should have made more use of. This is an excellent hotel for people with young children. The pool was clean,safe and heated. What lets the hotel down is that the rooms, or more probably the building is a bit dated and therefore lacks the style and format of say the Marriott chain approach.

Location location location

Excellent location within walking distance of Hollywood walk of fame and the Hollywood Bowl. Staff friendly, helpful and very professional. Willingly gave advice when required. Buffet breakfast very good. Complimentary snacks and drinks available 24/7. Would certainly recommend a stay here.

Local to all you need to do in Hollywood

Everything positive that has been said about this hotel is true, a couple of days during our stay the pool was out of use due to maintenance, and the staff were beside themselves as our son couldn't use it, so organised to transport him (and us# to a different local hotel that had a pool to allow him to have a swim there #the entire time their pool was out of action). Staff couldntn't do enough for you, from organising trips to getting you on the right bus train or taxi. Tuck shop that overflowed for kids and adults alike, continental breakfast the went on for ever, a smile every time you saw them... brilliant ..

Fantastic place to stay

Stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which was spacious and clean with 3 flat screen tv's and DVD's which are free to hire at the hotel. The staff are amazing, so friendly and helpful and even the hotel management welcomed guests. The pool is open 24 hrs a day, heated and is checked daily. Sun loungers and poolside towels makes it a lovely place to relax. Breakfast is complimentary with a fantastic choice and everything fresh. Having free chocolate, sweets, crisps, snacks and cans of pop saved us a fortune and was a lovely touch especially if you have a few children or even adults to buy for. The hotel is just a short street away from the middle of the Walk of Fame so you can feel safe about not getting lost. I have stayed close by to the Walk of Fame before but will most definitely be back to stay at the Magic Castle again. It's a 3 star rating but most definitely a 5 star service. Don't be fooled by the bigger more popular chains of hotels with lack of personal customer service. Stay here.

Nice hôtel close to the Hollywood Bv.

Très belle hôtel typique Beverly Hills!! On est tout de suite dans l'ambiance californienne ! Très accueillant et agréable, les petits déjeuners sont offert, et bien d'autres services sont compris dans le séjour, tel que la blanchisserie, les sodas et jus sont à volonté ainsi qu'un bar à glace italienne le tout en self service ! Au top ! A 100m d'Hollywood boulevard, Chinese theater, musée etc...

Hotel with excellent location worth your money!

The location of the hotel is superb! It's near all the Hollywood must-see-attractions and Runyon Canyon park from which there's perfect view over the city. Metro station is also only a couple hundred meters away and also other nearby public transportation connections to different parts of the city are good (to/from Burbank airport e.g.). Hotel staff is very friendly and they're happy to serve customers 24 hours a day in variety of matters, including ordering in food, arranging pick-up services and doing your laundry.
