Clean, solid service, reasonably priced

We came into town for the Dodger game and to see the zoo. The location is great for both - no more than 10 minutes. Valet parking with unlimited in and out was just $2 per day more than self park and the attendants were dressed well, spoke English, and were polite and helpful. Lobby staff was equally polite and check in was a breeze. We were on our way to our room in just a few minutes. Our room was quite clean and had a nice view. Although the building is around 30 years old they have maintained it well. The bedsheets were beautiful and super clean as was the bathroom. No stray hairs, smells, etc. Just clean. We had a nice flat screen TV with a working remote, the refrigerator is a nice touch, and the in-room safe is a must these days. The spa was small but relaxing. Will definitely go back.

Good Location

If you're in LA you need a car. Park at the tokyo mall parking lot, it's cheaper than the hotel valet and just a few steps away from the hotel. Save big if you overnight park after midnight, only five bucks!

Good experience

I had an enjoyable experience. The hotel staff was pleasant and helpful. We had a problem with the air conditioner not working well, and the hotel fixed it promptly. The hotel room itself was okay, though not luxurious. The hotel bar was somewhat pricey, however. They have a $6 cover charge and 2 drink minimum, so I would recommend going elsewhere for drinks. It would be nice if the hotel had a swimming pool.

Great hotel for the price!

I stayed here with my bf and several friends during our trip to Universal Studios and Six Flags Magic Mountain. For the price we paid, it's well worth it! The rooms were very clean and nothing needed fixing, which is always a plus. The bed was nice and I LOVED the white comforter they had. It was sooo comfortable! The staff were friendly and helpful. Also, there are a lot of Japanese restaurants within walking distance. We tried Daikokuya across from the hotel. It's a small, but very delicious restaurant that opens late. Their prices cannot be beat! Overall, a wonderful experience. I would definitely come back to the Miyako Hotel!

Nice, quiet, and clean

We've stayed at the Miyako before and found it be clean, attractively-furnished, and quiet. Our room was a non-smoking one, and it smelled clean and fresh. There is a $20 parking fee for valet parking, but we didn't mind paying it because most L.A. hotels charge for parking. We had spent the whole day at the Los Angeles Zoo, so we were so glad that we didn't have to make the long drive back to San Diego. The hotel is right in the middle of Little Tokyo, so we were within walking distance of MANY restaurants and shops. We had a great stay, although the older woman receptionist was not very friendly. She did not crack a smile! We dealt with her the last time, too; they should get someone else to give that first impression of their hotel. The hotel breakfast buffet was pretty good. It had both American and Asian dishes, but it's rather pricey-- $16 per person. All in all, we would definitely stay again because of the location, cleanliness and quiet.

Great location- reasonable price

Can't beat the location for visiting Little Tokyo, Japanese American National Museum, the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, and lots of restaurants & shops. Friendly, accomodating staff and clean rooms. Spa located in the hotel. About 3 blocks from City Hall. Less than a mile to Los Angeles Opera, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Ahmanson Theatre, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Mark Taper Forum, Museum of Contemporary Art, Pueblo de Los Angeles, Olvera Street and Union Station. A little further for Chinatown.

Daikokuya, across the street from hotel, has the BEST ramen...the lines outside prove it! Ebisu, on E 2nd Street, a great izakaya! Be sure to try the different flavored mochi ice cream treats at Mikawaya in the Japanese Village Plaza, entrance just down the street from the hotel.
