Spend lazy days spent by the pool and lively nights at Whisky a Go Go, or snap a selfie at Venice Beach or the Hollywood sign, both within a 30-minute drive of this aparthotel. These one- and two-bedroom Sunset Boulevard suites have a kitchen but you may prefer to head downstairs to the Tesse restaurant for French fare. Pink’s Hot Dogs, a 10-minute drive away, is an absolute must.

    Above Franklin Village and near Griffith Park is this one-bedroom bungalow in the Hollywood Hills. Surrounded by greenery, the cabin-like home has sweeping views of the city, a free-standing bath tub, a Nespresso coffee machine and all the essential amenities that make for a relaxing stay. This airbnb may not have a pool but it does have air conditioning and a stellar two-floor patio that includes a large, swinging bed perfect for gazing at sunsets with a glass of wine in hand.

    A scene-stealing view for two

    Guesthouse
    Map View
    This Moroccan-inspired guesthouse, set in the Hollywood Hills, is adorned with Berber-style rugs and Moorish metal tables but it’s the view that steals the show. Full-sized windows look out over a hazy city by day and a twinkling LA cityscape by night – but the hot tub on the terrace is the place to take it all in. There are Hollywood views from the bedroom too.

    An all-villa thriller

    Villa
    Map View
    This two-bedroom 1920s villa is built in Spanish Colonial Revival style like many of California’s best-loved buildings – whitewashed walls, wooden doors and terracotta roof tiles. The host, Diego, is Spanish, too, and on hand during your stay. The patio, with its outdoor fire pit and seating, is the centrepiece. You’re close to the Hollywood Bowl, where you can enjoy an open-air concert, and Runyon Canyon Park, which offers hiking trails with serious views.
