Having heard and read good things about Chinatown it is fair to say we already had some expectations. However, when we arrived in New Chinatown we were met with a disappointing scene. The streets were filled primarily with tourist souvenir shops, the restaurants were mainly...More
I had heard that there was lots to do here, but it ended up being very small and disappointing. It was very dirty almost everywhere, the shops did not have anything unique to purchase, and all of the places to eat were very dirty. There...More

Like many of the districts of LA, there is a self-guided walking tour you can do through Chinatown, marked by large bollards bearing a map and details of the various attractions. This is a great way to explore Chinatown and its history.

We didn't stay close to Chinatown, but I am sure you could find a hotel that would meet your expectations. May I suggest to Google hotels close to the area; Tripadvisor, also, could narrow down the selections for you.

I hope this helps. Good luck!
