Top 9 Airbnbs Near Universal Studios Hollywood, California

There’s no better place to be for a cinephile than Universal Studios Hollywood. This exciting theme park and film studio is among the most visited attractions in the country and that’s for a good reason. Being a big film and TV buff myself (and a Potterhead too), I have always found this Los Angeles icon absolutely magical. Where else can you taste a doughnut at Krusty Burger from Simpsons, have a tour of Hogwarts, ride a Hippogriff and feel the thrill of Jurassic World? All in the same day. Book one of these top Airbnbs near Universal Studios Hollywood and dive into the world of entertainment headfirst.
