Small hotel with an exotic Chinese atmosphere, located in the middle of Chinatown's bargain markets and among many Chinese restaurants. Nearby key museums and other cultural landmarks located around downtown, also next to the authentic and landmark train station of Los Angeles and easily accessible by car via several highways. Hearty complimentary breakfast! PS. Some rooms are rather dark or...

This would have been wonderful stay except that a major renovation was underway, and construction was taking place in the room next to ours. This meant hammering and drilling all day in that room AND on the shared wall! It was so loud that it was impossible to work, converse, or have a phone call, much less relax or nap....

On the plus side the room was clean and spacious. The beds were super comfortable, enough towels and a good steam iron with board. The TV had a good selection of channels. The bathroom was small and dated, but clean and functional (except one early morning where there was no hot water, they fixed it the same day, but unfortunately...

Hello: I'm sorry you found the parking attendant rude. I have spoken with him already. As for the parking fee. This is downtown Los Angeles. Parking is always a premium at any downtown property. The reason they need your keys is so they can move the car incase it is in the way of other cars that are trying to...

Stayed here 2 nights and it was perfect. The hotel is located in the heart of Chinatown, and is easily walkable from Union Station. The surrounding neighborhood looks a little scruffy at first but it is quiet and feels perfectly safe. Check-in was a breeze; the lady working at the front desk acknowledged our room request and also gave us...

Downtown LA is pretty creepy, especially at night. Surprisingly, not a lot is open in Chinatown at night. Plenty of homeless panhandlers. The hotel was OK. The bed was extremely comfortable. The tv was new and there was a fridge. However, the bathroom was old and small. The breakfast was OK< but the lady serving was so friendly and anxious...

This hotel is in bustling Chinatown but is very quiet and comfortable. Parking is underneath, safe and very accessible. The value is good without fanfare and fancy furnishings but good solid amenities and service that made our stay memorable.
