Mel's Drive-In & Hollywood

While we were in Hollywood, we had breakfast at a nice "historic" diner just off Hollywood Boulevard, Mel's Drive-In.


Loews Hollywood

We had a pleasant 2 night stay at the Loews Hollywood last month.



If you are connecting in Munich and have a couple of hours layover, there's a relaxing area in terminal 2 (G & H gates) called Sleep.

It consists of several "cabins" or pods provided by Napcabs that you can rent by the hour (min. 2 hours, max. 12 hours) at 15 euros per hour, where you can relax and sleep while waiting for your flight.

The pods have air conditioning, alarm clock, internet access and flight information.

If you don't feel like getting one of these cabs, you can however rest and relax in a quiet area next to the cabins, with comfortable sofas and some electrical sockets where you can recharge your laptop or phone, but most importantly, there's absolute silence.
