Very Nice Location!!!

This hotel was great in many ways. I really enjoyed the small and quaint environment. Service was always available and the location really made things accesible. I would recommend this place to anyone. Only bummer...no bed desks or tables.

Terrific for the price! Super friendly staff. Free parking!

The neighborhood is nice, the parking is free, the staff is nice, and the rooms are nice too. You can tell the rooms are apartment units freshly renovated and converted into hotel rooms, but that gives it a unique hotel feel. My girlfriend and I stayed here because we wanted to be close to an event in LA and didn't want to be bothered with commuting to our apartment outside of the city in LA County afterwards. The hotel stay was perfect! Nice bathroom faucets and sink. Nice flat-screen in the room. Free WiFi. Basically, the hotel served all our needs, had zero inconveniences, and we got what we paid for. Sure, it's not like staying at a hotel that costs $300 a night, but it's still pretty good for what you pay. No, I don't work for the hotel and I don't have any affiliation with them. :)

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There are lots of Korean restaurants within walking distance. Also, a 711 -- so you can buy drinks / etc from there without getting ripped-off by hotel prices. It's a pretty good area of LA.

Great place to stay in LA!

I like this hotel because I can walk to the metro train station, 2 blocks. It is clean, quiet and affordable. I wanted to be in the city since I didn't have a car. They are helpful in getting directions to places in LA. It's not a typical hotel in that theres no coke/snack machines. They do have internet access and nice rooms. I walked around and never felt scared in the neighborhood, the heart of Koreatown.

Wouldn't change a thing

Got their late and had a late check in after reservation and it was not a problem at all. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful. They allowed us to use their parking when trying to get official documents taken care of at the consulate. The room was spotless, tidy, and comfortable. It was over all a great stay and comparing it to many of the hotels near Koreatown, this is A++

I stayed Shelter Hotel several times due to its location. If you have a plan for visiting Korea Town, it will be one of the best.

Perfect for a downtown get away

I had a conference in Korea town and this hotel was a perfect choice. It was relaxing and quite and the beds were so comfortable. The hallways were a little dingy but the rooms were clean and new and the neighbored was clean and safe.

Spacious clean room with awesome bed

Room was a little stark with no pictures on the walls, but was clean and quiet (with the fan helping to drown out some outside noise). Free parking garage that's locked up at about 1:00AM.

Farmers Market at Third and Fairfax is a blast with awesome casual outdoor restaurants and free validated parking. About a ten minute drive from the hotel.
