Where to stay in Los Angeles; Best areas and hotels

Los Angeles is a huge city, and it's hard to find a hotel that's close to everything. The most important thing when looking for accommodation in the city is that it be a safe area, since there are quite dangerous neighborhoods.

In this post I tell you about the best areas and hotels to stay in Los Angeles.


Before I start talking about the best areas to stay in Los Angeles and various accommodation options, I want to talk to you about the importance of traveling to the United States with travel insurance.

It is essential that if you travel to the United States you do so with additional medical travel insurance. Even if you have private insurance in your country of origin, many of them only cover a certain percentage and sometimes they only cover basic care.

Accidents happen, we get sick, we lose luggage or our documentation is stolen... The subject of healthcare in the United States is very expensive, to give you an idea;

An x-ray approx: 300 euros.

An operation approx: 12,000 euros

One day hospitalized approx: 4,000 euros

A basic consultation with prescription approx: 150 euros
