About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Villa Valentino #5 is a one bedroom, one bath apartment built in the 1920’s. It has been fully restored and fully furnished. It has a gas log fireplace in the living room and features a beautiful vintage stove in a quaint kitchen that will take you back to your great grandmother's day. The property is located just 2 blocks south of the Hollywood Bowl, and 2 blocks north of the “Heart of Hollywood” at Hollywood Blvd and Highland Ave. Easy walking access to Disney’s El Capitan Theater, the Kodak Theater, Graumann’s Chinese Theater, the Metro station, restaurants galore and many other attractions. Close access to the 101 Freeway. Off-street parking provided.

Designed by the Davis Brothers Architects, Villa Valentino is designated as Los Angles City Cultural Monument #397, and is one of the best remaining examples of the Garden Court style of architecture from the early 20th century. It is a hidden gem. Step back in time.

Place fine. They charge $50 if you arrive after 9pm. I left on 12/29 and received my deposit on 1/11. Except management, the rest is fine.

We had such an amazing stay at Hollywood Hideaways! The host/owner, Carrie, was so sweet and wonderful to talk with. The place was immaculate and so quiet; especially for being smack in the middle of it all near Hollywood Blvd. The walk to the Chinese Theatre and Walk of Fame was so easy. The apartment complex felt very safe and had secure entry/exits for both your car or if you want to travel by foot. The pictures on the website do not lie as to how pretty the courtyards and interior rooms really are. We are already looking forward and want to plan our next stay at this location. This location was also good as a jumping off point to visit other areas of L.A.

Beautiful setting for honeymoon or family gathering. While in Hollywood for a wedding, 4 families gathered at the Villa. We were able to share meals, gather at the end of an evening, coordinate excursions, etc. with ease. Carrie, the property manager, was most helpful assisting with check -in and orientation to Hollywood. Accommodations were exactly as described. Rooms were spotless, fireplaces worked, beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen had enough equipment and dishware to serve six. We felt very secure at the Villa with locked gates. We will be back!

Reviewer Comments:

We loved everything about this apartment and the beautiful historic building it was in. Carrie was a great property manager, providing lots of tips and advice about the area. And Cecilia and the maintenance team were really friendly. We didn't rent a car, instead using Uber, walking or taking the Metro. Really easy to get around from the location without the worry about parking. Felt central enough to get to lots of different locations around the city, but one of our favourites was on the doorstep - the national historic district of Whitley Heights just behind the apartment building. Even though it's in the centre of Hollywood, as the apartment is set back from busy Franklin Ave, behind gates and tall trees, it felt truly relaxing. A great night's sleep every night! Would recommend Villa Valentino to anyone looking for a special place to stay in Hollywood.

I booked this condo for a mother/ daughter getaway and was excited to stay based on the pictures. The property manager was very responsive and the location was excellent. However we encountered the following issues:

- The first night we stayed we heard yelling from one of the other units in the middle of the night. After reporting the disturbance to the property manager, she insisted that this was coming from the hotel next door and that we needed to close the windows to minimize the noise. Our windows were closed all evening, but since it was just one night, I didn't have a problem letting this go.

- Please be aware that the low nightly rates advertised do not include a turnover cleaning fee. This is important since after our stay I received an email from the property manager stating that they found "stains" on the carpet and sofa. We didn't drink or spill anything in the unit that would have caused these stains. The only thing we drank in the unit was water so there was no way that we caused these stains. We used the sofa as a bed, so we didn't even sit on the sofa cushions past the first night. The sofa stain was pink in color and the other an old looking stain on the carpet. The pictures she sent also appeared to be blown up to make them look as bad as possible. They deducted an additional seventy dollars from our security deposit to cover the "cleaning fee". Wasn't this what the turnover cleaning fee was for? Next time we are in LA, we will choose a conventional hotel stay since after paying all the fees, etc we probably could have stayed at the Beverly Hilton!!

Reviewer Comments:

My girlfriend and I stayed at villa Valentino room 5. This was an amazing place. The location is ideal for all the main attractions in Los Angeles including the Hollywood walk of fame (two blocks), Hollywood bowl (up the street), the griffin observatory (10 min car), Getty center (20 min car), Santa Monica beach (30 min car), Pasadena (25 min car) staples center (15 min car). We managed to do all those attractions and more in three days. The location is on a busy street (highland) and you will likely miss it the first time looking for it. It is truly a hidden gem. Once you get inside the gate and park at your free parking space it is like stepping back in time. The beautiful Spanish architecture is not only amazing but historic as well. To get to this apartment you walk through the beautiful, well maintained courtyard where there are is an amazing garden to sit at and relax and enjoy some fresh air. Once inside your apartment you will literally go back in time with rooms that have character and old Hollywood charm. It is truly beautifully designed. It has s large living room with a beautiful sofa that can become a pullout bed. A great bathroom, your bedroom, a kitchen, and a dining room. I could see myself living here as it was so comfortable and cozy. As old as the building is we were amazed at all the great modern upgrades that it including central air conditioning and a coined laundry area on the premise. Your host and property manager Carrie is amazing and was always there to answer any questions or give suggestions. If you are staying in Los Angeles area... Do yourself a favor by experiencing this beautiful Hollywood gem.
