No problem, the front desk has complimentary liquid detergent for the washer and dryer avaiable to guests for $1.25 (college style). Complimentary on demand, newspaper at your front door, choclate on your...

Great little hotel in a great location just a short walk all the action in Hollywood Blvd. The included continental breakfast is a nice touch. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Only downside is that you have to lug your luggage down a large numbers of stairs to get to reception and the rooms are quite small and the airconditioners...

This place is great for a few days as it is basically on Hollywood boulevard. The cucumber water was fantastic The rooms were not as clean as they could be and you can tell that the bed linen was very cheap

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at Magic Castle Hotel. I’m so glad you like the cucumber water…..it’s very refreshing on hot Los Angeles summer day. I was very concerned to read that your room wasn’t as clean as could have been. I would love to follow up with this and hear any details you...

Stayed at Magic Castle Hotel for 3 nights in June. Great service, kids loved the snacks available at any time and the dvd's, and the pool which was right outside our room. The balcony was a good spot to watch the kids in the pool. We had a one bedroom apartment... the king size bed was so comfy and the...

We had read the reviews on Tripadvisor prior to booking. Almost without exception everyone raved about the customer service; now I know why. We spent our first 4 nights of a month long trip to the US here in June and we couldn't have started at a better hotel. The downside, if there was one, was that the rooms are...

Even a month later, I’m still thinking about the wonderful stay my husband and I had at the Magic Castle Hotel. From the warm and welcoming staff (we were met with delicious drinks upon arrival) to the gigantic one bedroom suite to the all-you-can eat complimentary refreshments to the more than filling breakfast – everything was fantastic! Unfortunately, we didn’t...

Wow - The Magic Castle Hotel in Hollywood is great. The people working there could give seminars on customer service. As an example, we asked one evening about the menu of a restaurant nearby. In addition to giving guidance about what to order, they handed us a menu. We decided it wasn't right for our children, so we set the...

We stayed here for 4 nights(June 26-30) during our two week visit to the US. I usually don't stay at the smaller hotels like this, but after these four days I have changed my opinion. You feel welcome from check in to check out. They serve a small but tasty complimentary breakfast and they offer you a free mini bar....
