Movie legends including Charlie Chaplin and Marilyn Monroe are said to have lived in the same spot where you’ll find today’s Charlie Hotel. And it’s easy to believe: The bungalows have a central location between Hollywood and Beverly Hills, just a 20-minute walk from Sunset Boulevard. Each one is fully furnished and surrounded by gardens, offering 2-5 visitors the perfect place to relax away from the hustle and bustle of this glamorous metropolis. The stylishly designed apartments were completely renovated in 2008, but still maintain their original charm.
Apartment hotel: Modern amenities & classic design
With its apartments of different sizes, the Charlie Hotel is ideal for everyone – solo travelers, couples on a romantic break, or families on a longer vacation. The apartments are housed in 14 bungalows and are spread over one or two floors. The exclusive suites have a fully fitted kitchen, air conditioning, cable TV and WiFi, as well as a washing machine and dryer. The interiors have a classic, elegant Old Hollywood style and boast beautiful wooden floors, smart colors, lots of white and dark wood. Fit for a movie star! Sheltered verandahs in the inner courtyard are the perfect place to soak up the southern Californian climate without having to venture out. Each apartment also has its own private parking spot (included in the price).
City hotel: Sunset Strip, Universal Studios and Santa Monica – pure LA
If you want to explore Los Angeles, then there’s no better base for you than the Charlie Hotel. Despite its quiet location, it’s still situated in heart of the action, which also means you can explore parts of this 4-wheel city on foot. You’ll find plenty of bars, restaurants and shops nearby, including the Sunset Strip. In half an hour you can be at Wattles Garden Park, one of the many parks in Hollywood Hills. If you have a car then in good traffic you can reach the legendary Universal Studios in only 20 minutes, and the beaches of Santa Monica in around 30 minutes.
Food & drink: Be your own chef or visit restaurants nearby
The apartments at the Charlie Hotel have modern kitchens which mean it’s really easy to rustle up meals for you and the whole family. There are also grocery stores within walking distance, including a Whole Foods Market. But if you don’t fancy cooking at the end of a long day of sightseeing, then it’s just as easy to pick from the range of restaurants and cafes in the surrounding area.
Sport & leisure: Sport, nature & culture – whatever you fancy
Surfers, swimmers and sun worshipers are in their element on the nearby beaches of Santa Monica. If you prefer a greener landscape, then visit the nearby Hollywood Hills and countless national parks, ideal for walking. In this fitness-obsessed ’City of the Angels’, it won’t take you long to find a fitness studio. From the Charlie you can also easily reach all the nightlife you’d expect from a big city, like sports bars, music clubs (like the House of Blues) and movie theaters.
