The good, the bad, and the correctable.

It was an nice hotel centered down town Los Angels, (Little Tokyo). The staff was friendly and the food in that area is very good. The added price if $17 a day for unlimited parking really caught me off guard. That pushed the price to over $100 a night. It was not mentioned during booking or on the web sight. Next time I will definately check into parking fees and any other unmentioned fees prior to booking the room. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, this is the first hotel I've ever been to that DID NOT have a microwave in the room. Not to mention, I was on the back side of the hotel facing the garage and it wasn't that busy. This could very well be a 4 or 5 star stay if certain things are corrected.

Not for Business

This is a tourist hotel catering to groups from Japan. A bit run down, but not dirty. Tough to find outlets in the rooms a real problem for business travel. No late night room service.

Good for convenience to downtown and good eating in Little Tokyo

If you just need a place to stay that is close to downtown and the Fashion District this is a good place. The staff is great. Pretty average accommodations. A bit old but clean. And the location is superb. Close to little Tokyo, arts district and downtown. Daikokuya is right across the street. Lots of smaller shops and restaurants close by. Good find.

Good location; Basic accomodations.

If you're looking for a decent, clean bed to sleep on in a this part of downtown LA, this place is a good fit for you. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Bed was very comfortable with clean, quality sheets. Wifi was very spotty, TV was from the 1990s. Operable windows was nice for fresh air; air conditioning worked good too.

Decent for what it is

This is a pretty simple hotel in the heart of Little Tokyo. Everyone who works here is Japanese and the overall vibe is representative of the area its in. I found this hotel on here cause it was within walking distance to City Hall. The Staff was not rude but they were not necessarily helpful. They seemed indifferent to everything. When I asked about sights and what to do, they drew a blank stare and gave me an old piece of paper that had a directory of what surrounded the hotel in that one block that is Little Tokyo. The room was nothing special and honestly I didn't need it to be. The toilet was definitely an interesting experience to say the least! Like I said, very Japanese. Bottom line: Would I stay here again? Only if I have to go to LA to take care of work related stuff in DTLA, other than that no. Don't get me wrong its a decent hotel (probably great if you are Japanese) but the location is nothing special and the staff just didn't seem to care. I will be coming back to LA for vacation and will not stay in DTLA again. I would recommend if in LA for work in DTLA.

DTLA is said not to be LA true party scene but they did had some decent spots/clubs that were within walking distance. Not many overall but enough if you are looking for something afterhours near by. The food in the area is on point if you like Japanese Food.
