    Arrived at night later than anticipated but was given a very friendly welcome by Masha the concierge. It was like open sesame and driving into a magical fairytale garden, a private, secluded and peaceful oasis in a noisy busy city. The 'Ruth' the house where we stayed had a spacious open plan living area and kitchen, a large bedroom upstairs and amazingly comfortable bed. Gloriously sunny and light in the morning with a great view of the garden courtyard. Liked the fact that it was very private but if you needed information or help you would get it from Masha. Very central position for visiting tourist attractiond.

    The location was only a short drive from where my wife and I lived. We loved that it wasn't a "typical" hotel and that it had some authentic Hollywood history behind it. Also, we got an upgrade from a studio to a much bigger place with no additional charge. Masha, the general manager was excellent. She helped us out so much.

    We stayed in the Marilyn bungalow. There was absolutely nothing we disliked about the place.

    We loved the setting of cottages in the garden. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. Gated parking was very useful. This is a hidden gem - perfectly located in West Hollywood.

  • Family with children

    The rooms were beautifully decorated and restored, and the space was really magical, a true hideaway.

    The customer service was really bad -- we were greeted brusquely, no-one explained anything about the rooms except about the parking (which was kinda small), there was nothing in the kitchen, not even salt and pepper, there was no housekeeping the second day we were there. Also, the gardens were in horrible shape, lots of dead vegetation everywhere, and a view out of the back of the Marilyn onto a wilderness of weeds and cobwebs. I spend 3k on 3 nights for my brother and his family and me, and I think it should have been more gracious.

  • Family with children

    Beautiful grounds, unique setting, walking distance to town.

    Beds need upgrading, not overly comfortable. It would have been nice to at least have coffee in the room vs. Just a pot.

  • Family with children

    We liked every single moment we spent at the Charlie. It felt really like home and the responsiveness of the management were remarkable. The place is really unique in L.A. as it was quiet and cozy in the middle of the most busy areas in LA. We loved how the place doesn't have a lobby and you use the flower paths to go to your cottage with individual entrance to each unit . It felt like you are in a beautiful secret garden. We thank Mike and Masha for making our stay a pleasant and unforgetable stay.

  • Older travelers

    Readers of any of my other reviews for Booked.net will know I don't rave. So here's a first! The Charlie is a total delight. It is elegant, charming, comfortable, friendly, well-located, peaceful and in every way beautiful. From the moment you arrive, you feel you have stumbled on a blissful secret haven. Apart from its modest place in Hollywood history as Charlie Chaplin's old home, and its association with other stars like Marilyn Monroe, in its restored form today it is both stylish and highly functional. It consists of a series of self- contained cottages around a leafy, flowery courtyard, and is entirely self-catering. There is no dining room, and no bar. However shops and restaurants are not far away. Each apartment has a well-equipped kitchen, so why not live like a local and shop with the stars (and save on restaurant bills?) There is a shady communal terrace for outdoor living, and each apartment has its own parking space. It is cheaper than the big-name Hollywood hotels, and nicer.

    I have no complaints at all about The Charlie. However I feel people should know that although it calls itself a hotel, it is really a set of first-class serviced apartments. Anyone arriving expecting the usual hotel facilities like a bar might be a bit surprised to find they had to go out shopping for a drink. Other than that, it's the best.

    The setting was charming and very private.

    While the kitchen was well stocked, they were missing some essentials like a sponge, paper towels and dish soap. We ever ran out of toilet paper.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    history , furnishings, secure parking, something different from standard hotel, lovely patio, owner greated us- personal service. quaint , in nice suburban type location off main roads but so close for sight seeing etc

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    The location was good. It was an interesting and 'different' place to stay. The rooms were well decorated and had a cosy feel to them. Understated classy. Good for travelers who do not want the usual city hotel but take food with you.

    The lack of housekeeping on a Sunday was inconvenient. We had a very late arrival and it was a pity that there was no tea or coffee in the rooms as the convenience store was a fair distance away even by car. No food is available in this hotel. It is pricey and I would not recommend it for a family with children.

  • Family with children

    The Charlie is gorgeous! beautiful hideaway in the middle of west hollywood. Its like your own private home! ... the rooms are beautifully designed and incredibly spacious. It was a nice change from generic hotel rooms, definitely going back!

    This isn't really their fault, but the people who were staying above us were loud and moving furniture around all night The internet was slow and spotty

  • Family with children

    Great location, value for money....and beautiful peaceful hideaway in the centre of the hollywood attractions. A must for any traveller!!!! Thanks we will be back

    Just needed basic supplies for the traveller eg salt & pepper and tea & coffee/milk supplies....every tired traveller wants a cup of tea!!
