The Hollywood Hills Suites are tucked away on a quiet hill yet 1 block from the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Vine Street - also known as the heart of Hollywood.

Its central location is within 5-15 minutes walk from great sight seeing, shopping, hiking and public transport for easy access to the various parts of L.A. Head one block down onto Hollywood boulevard to begin strolling along the Walk of Fame.

The metro station is located just a block away at Hollywood & Vine, giving you quick access to Universal studios, museums, downtown L.A., Pasadena and beaches

A summarized guest guide-

Hollywood Boulevard: You are situated between two main Boulevards which run East/West and parallel to one another: Hollywood Boulevard to your South (below the property) and Franklin Boulevard to your North (above the property)

On Hollywood Boulevard turn right and start walking West……. You will hit the Pantages theatre, and all the landmarks Hollywood is known for. One block further down is Hollywood and Vine. The Hollywood walk of fame begins here, so don’t forget to look onto the pavement to locate your favorite movie star, director, singer or other entertainer getting their personal star. About 3 X/week a red carpet movie premier is scheduled, along Hollywood Blvd, so you're bound to see the stars climb out of limos and give autographs. For additional nightlife and entertainment, just walk down a couple more blocks to Hollywood & Cahuenga to find a series of more trendy bars, restaurants, clubs and sports bars. Theatre houses and cinemas are all located here or on the Sunset Strip one block West

Franklin Avenue: This is a lovely street to explore. You can even see the Hollywood Sign on the corner of Franklin and Gower. Turn right and continue walking one block until you reach Beachwood Blvd, which will take you up a one mile road towards the Hollywood Hills,..and eventually within a stone’s throw of the iconic Hollywood Sign. Continue until you reach Griffith Park entrance where they offer horseback riding or you can take a beautiful hike up their endless trails into the mountains. Alternatively, if you continue on Franklin, past Beachwood, one more block on, you will arrive at Franklin Village, and a row of trendy, local cafes and restaurants including the Daily Planet (Clark Kent/Superman’s newspaper employer), an international newspaper stand and coffee shop, and few doors down, La Poubelle, Birds, Bourgeois Pig, Sushi, Thai food and the improvisation comedy theatre house, the Upright Citizens Brigade. Also a major supermarket called Gelsons is one block further.

Tours/Attractions/Festivals: For Universal Studios, just go to the Metro on Hollywood and Vine, which brings you right to its doorstep, one stop away. Disneyland is day's trip to Anaheim, so you will need to rent a car. Tickets to live shows such as the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the irreverent but very funny Real Time with Bill Maher, or game shows (Price Is Right, Jeopardy!) are broadcast from any one of the studios nearby such as CBS, NBC. Just go online and inquire.

The Hollywood Bowl is just 6 blocks away on Highland and Cahuenga and is a friendly sociable place where Southern Californians gather to picnic and enjoy outstanding music under the stars, and offers the Throughout the summer the LA Phil presents the best in jazz, (Playboy Jazz Festival) classical, (It's the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic) Broadway, and world music, featuring artists that range from from Sarah Chanto Diana Krall, John Williams to Pet Shop Boys, and Nancy Wilson to Arcade Fire.

About Ana Kar

I purchased this property in 2007, to fill a gap in the accommodations that would allow guests coming to L.A. and Hollywood to feel at home and enjoy living like a local whilst visiting all the amazing attractions this city and especially this neightborhood-the best known in the world- has to offer. I worked in the hotel industry for 15 years, and was finally able to develop my own property and run it with quality service and offer a prime location to guests.

Ana Kar purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Ana Kar chose Hollywood

This property with four 1 and 2 bedroom apartment units offered the perfect Hollywood location for the best known iconic destination in the world. Convenient, walkable and close to all the attractions, yet situated on a quiet hill just off Hollywood boulevard.

What makes this townhome unique

Each apartment is equipped with all the comforts of your home and benefits of a hotel, yet at a fraction of the price, and is professionally managed with a manager available throughout your stay to assist you. The keyless system, gives you flexibility to arrive anytime, so you have a peace of mind, and no stress or rush for a key exchange. If you don't feel like driving, you still can walk or use public transport to get to any place within the greater L,A. area. The metro station one block away gives you quick access to the west side, to downtown L.A. and Pasadena, as well as the beaches. You can wlak to all the main attractions, restaurants, bars, cafes and great live entertainment, including theatres, music venues, jazz clubs and countless festivals. Grocery stores and great shopping are all within a few blocks away. So you are always close to all the great sights yet tucked away in quiet street off of the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Great place to stay in the heart of Hollywood

  • 5 of 5

My family of five (kids ages 10, 5, and 2) just stayed in the Capital Records unit. It was very nice and offered your basic necessities. It offered enough room to feel comfortable for the five of us. The balcony was very nice to sit outside and enjoy breakfast or a cup of coffee. The shared outside area behind the gate was a nice place for the kids to run around, kick a ball, or play catch.

Before arriving, I was a bit nervous of the noise coming from 101 however I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was given it's close proximity to the freeway as well as Hollywood. It's a great location to walk around and sightsee Hollywood....close to Hollywood Blvd, Walk of Fame, Trader Joe's, even a nice walk up into the Hollywood Hills to get a closer look at the sign. The location would suit your needs to explore Hollywood however it's also a very easy location to get around the rest of LA. Our family visited Universal, Knotts Berry Farm, and Six Flags Magic Mountain which all were very easy to get to/from. Overall, a very nice place.

  • 4 of 5

Me & my 9yrs old, and grandparents stayed a week in LA. We really enjoyed the this short vacation. It's very easy to get anywhere. We mostly traveled by Metro, just few mins walk down the hill. I cooked most of the time (very close to Traders Joe & few convenience store). Quiet neighborhood but quite safe. Manager was very helpful. Love the fact have Wi-fi. Everything was clean and in order. Would definitely recommend to our friends!

Great stay in the Hollywood Hills!

  • 5 of 5

3 girls staying in this gem of a vacation rental.

5 minute walk to Subway station. Free laundry facilities on-site were very useful. All the beds were comfortable, except for the sofa-bed which was broken when we got there (my friend was still able to sleep on it, but on an angle). We contacted the owner via text but no answer. I am sure the bed is fixed by now.

Everything was in order and clean, would definitely recommend staying there, as it is a central Hollywood location.

My Visit

  • 4 of 5

After just coming back from staying three nights, my friends and I, 5 altogether, were very impressed with the apartment. it is nicely decorated and has a lovely feel when you walk in. It's location is good as its near most movie studios and if your lucky you can see the Hollywood sign from down the road as well. There is a quite big shopping area around the apartment so grocery's can be bought when needed. The space is good as we shared our beds but still it still felt quite comfortable and spacious. The manager was also very helpful as we did have a few problems but nothing to do with the apartment. Altough the apartment is very secure, you still have to be very careful especially at night as some of the surrounding streets are quite secluded and we saw a few homeless people. Also, parking is located on the front of the building and is quite steep. We got a parking ticket as part of our car was still slightly on the pavement, even though it was a rainy day and the car could not park fully up, so be careful. Overall, the apartment does make you feel like you are in Hollywood so it was great. Thank You Anna.
