Room & Other Facilities

This Los Angeles boutique hotel offers 32 rooms, but since it’s in the middle of a super lively district, it’s really important to check out your room when booking. When you’re booking here, make sure to go for an upstairs room with a terrace, as the standard room faces the avenue, and it’s very noisy at night.

As far as the actual rooms are concerned, the design is really cool, with colorful walls, just what you’d expect from a Los Angeles boutique hotel. There was a plush sofa and a very, very cosy bed at our room at the best hipster hotel Los Angeles. Downside: the AC is controlled centrally, and the rooms can get a bit hot.

The reception is also very cosy, and there’s even a small yard that’s perfect to hang out at the best hipster hotel Los Angeles!

Food & Drinks

While there’s no food served directly at the hotel, the place does have a pretty cool eatery: The Heart and the Hunter. A very hip and popular restaurant, it is located right within the premises.

Much like at the Palihotel, the design is cool and hip, although the cuisine is a bit limited. Still, the menu is pretty interesting, mostly inspired by South American food and serving other international flavors. The restaurant’s terrace is really great for brunch and dinner, one of the highlights of this Los Angeles boutique hotel! Try to make a reservation beforehand: as the restaurant of the best hipster hotel Los Angeles, it’s fairly popular and always full of people.
