Room was clean and spacious, and bathroom too. Check-inn was different to any I've had as it was just a desk and a person with information, rather than a reception with people. Location was great, easy to KTown and any transport requirements too. Travel into downtown LA approx 20mins via Uber.

Wonderful place to stay in K-town. Checking in is a bit like checking into a hostel, person sitting at a desk with a laptop and copying your id. All the staff we encountered were nice and helpful. The room was large and clean. The windows opened which was nice. The elevator is a little slow. They have a pool, ping...

Just what I needed, in the heart of Korean town. As an Asian, I felt right at home and blended right in (I dunno if non-Asians would feel the same though, as Korean Town is VERY Asian). The hotel itself was more like a "creative" 3-star and so I found it a bit overpriced at $200/night. The desk staff was...

The hotel staff was friendly and the room was spacious as well as the bathroom. Housekeeping was polite and gave me extra towels when I asked. Parking was $10 ex a night but it wasn't bad. Good hotel will stay again

This place was a surprise. The only negative thing I have to say was that it's a little hard to find at night, especially if you are unfamiliar with the area, and be advised, it's valet parking only, and it's in the basement of the building. The room was nice and clean, affordable, and the way that the bottom floor...

My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights to attend an event at the Das Bunker club. The room was clean and modern with hardwood floors. The continental breakfast consisted of either muffins or donuts, and there was coffee, tea and iced water. The beds were super comfy too! 😀

The room and hotel is great. The place is very clean and the staff is friendly. The area that the hotel is in is not the best. If you are just looking for a room for a night or two this place is good, but if you're interested in a hotel with shopping or other activities this is not the...

I needed a place to stay while spending the night in LA on a long travel itinerary. This hotel has a good rate, was close to downtown, and seemed like a good bet. It was. Check-in was very efficient (as was check out), the room was basic but nicely appointed and exceptionally clean, and there was a coffee maker. What...

Big clean room, secure parking, and helpful staff. The only bad thing I could say, is there is a slight musky feel to the place. But the windows open and fresh air takes care of that. I would definitely stay here again if in the area. Big clean king size bed was very comfortable.

The hotel was clean, small and quiet with generous sized rooms. Located in a mixed residential/commercial neighbourhood but central if you want to access different parts of L.A. (outside of west hollywood). Staff were friendly and helpful. I loved how the windows opened for fresh air or I could control the air conditioning on really hot days. The hotel met...
