San Vicente Bungalows
Reviewed 1 May 2017

This place was terrific as a 60ish 70ish mecca for gay men. Then developers crashed in turning it upscale & overpriced. The place is basic bungalows. Furniture, paint, factory-made art will not turn a charming Bohemian locale which was semi-secret into the Beverly Hills Hotel. The facilities were primitive cabins once used by early filmmakers. Then it was turned into a rehab center in the back for drugs & drink. Actually the back portion is haunted,,I m a medium & know spirits haunt the place. These entities will not like this renovation.

SAN Vicente is a retro, idyllic and cute hotel pretty close to everything in LA. Good pricing, clean swimming pool and ok wifi. Most guest were partying and drinking by the pool and walking into each other's rooms. Wouldn't recommend this hotel for people that want a quiet stay.

I won't go on and on, as I think the place is closing soon. To be gutted and remodeled? West Hollywood is a good location; I was using LA's medical centers. Am told that the price is good for this area.

The staff -- Ashwaque, Maruf, Jeff, Jacinto, and Sean - are helpful and friendly. Miguel and the maids do their best to keep the old place working and clean.

I will never go to the San Vicente bungalows again , my last experience here was down right irritating , the hot water in my shower did not work , the staff was extremely rude , the rooms were shabby to say the least , the place has charm , but it is managed by complete incompetence , the staff called the police on a paying guest because they were chatting too loudly. I used to recommend this place highly for its fun atmosphere and it's close proximity to the clubs on Santa Monica Blvd , however I will now be recommending the Standard hotel up the street on Sunset. Terrible experience all around.

Stayed: November 2016
