Clean and neat
Loved the location! Perfect for DTLA activities.
The room was designed with functionality in mind. My only real complaint is that I disliked the harsh fluorescent lighting.
Location, friendly staff, good price
2 roaches in the bathroom, and the door to my room rattled loudly in its frame every time someone else on my floor opened or closed their door.
Nearby and a Good Value
The hotel is near The Broad, MOCA, Disney Hall, downtown and Little Tokyo. It's comfortable and reasonably priced. The small size of the rooms makes it feel urban and right for a stay in LA.
The lobby needs an update.
The hotel itself is a bit dated and shows signs of age, but it does seem like they're trying to fix things up. Our room was small and the furniture was a bit rinky-dink, but very clean and very inviting despite limited space. We wanted a place to crash after a day of exploring the city and for the price, it suited our needs just fine. The staff we interacted with during our stay was incredibly polite. I've seen a lot of complaints in reviews, but honestly, I feel like this was one of the nicer places I've been for the price.
The club below was quite noisy and I could feel the vibration from the fourth floor, but it was tolerable for both me and my 16 year old who can pretty much sleep through anything. You may want to avoid this one if you are a light sleeper.
Wish there was complementary parking
Victor the valet was very friendly and helpful. Other than that the room was tiny and plain but it worked as a place to crash for the night.
Surprised that I had to pay for parking. TV stand was broken but made do. Bed needs to be replaced soon. You can tell it's been used a lot.
Prime location next to Disney Hall, subway
Probably the cheapest option next to Disney Hall and other Grand Avenue cultural attractions.
The hotel is really basic. Don't stay if you like nice amenities or want to use the room for anything but sleeping.
Hotel would not issue refund even though I had not spent the night not left the room in worse condition than when I had entered. Five minute wait for elevator and no stairs. Hotel situated on top of night club with no sound proofing. Cramped.
Who makes a room above a club??
They gave us the choice of a room above a club and the front desk person told me "it's going to be loud. You won't sleep." Or a smoking twin room. The twin beds aren't even true twins. They're tiny. The room is so small that only one person can walk to the bathroom, one person must be in a bed in order for the other to walk. I was stunned at how small the room was. They wouldn't cooperate when I told them I had a big audition the next day and my choice was between not sleeping or sleeping in a tiny room and breathing the harsh smoking room air. Instead I paid more for the hilton the same night because it was that bad. Never again.
Location was excellent
FAXed hotel a month before stay to request a quiet, non-smoking room. Was put on third floor but noise and vibration from nightclub below was unreal. Thankfully it all died down at ~ 2am but it made for an unpleasant stay and a poor night's sleep.
i didnt like my stay!i have made a reservation 2months ago.first when i have arrived.they didnt give me the correct room.it was reseved for an other!ervrything was bad.i dont advice people!
Very basic hotel, but for the area, jt was an economical place to stay. It was clean, staff was friendly, and location was very good. As a grad student traveling for a conference 1/2 mile away, it fit the bill pefectly.
It was a very basic hotel (pay for wifi). Few amenities nearby, but for the price, its hard to complain.
With a stay at Kawada Hotel, you'll be centrally located in Los Angeles, a 2-minute drive from Walt Disney Concert Hall and 12 minutes from California State University-Los Angeles. Featured amenities include a business center, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk.
