The Hotel is a nice hotel located in the heart of Chinatown Chicago, and is an ideal choice for budget minded travelers. -Only 4 blocks from McCormick Place; -Just 10 minutes way by bus or train from the Chicago Downtown, Grant Park or Museum Campus. -A couple of minutes to charming Chinese cuisine dining, shopping and entertainment venues inside Chinatown. Easy accessible to both O'Hare and Midway airports and other parts of the city.

NRA Convention

Get what you pay for. Shower stall so small every time I turned around I hit the shutoff valve on the water, turning it off. The paint was peeling off the walls and the TV got three channels.

Wasted time.

Not worthy of my time to review. This was a dump. I've stayed at motels on Lincoln Avenue that were better than this hole.

It has a roof and a bed

I was at the hotel on business and couldn't get any other hotel because a lot of conventions in the city. The main thing to know about the hotel, is that rooms are on upper floors and there is no elevator. The TV had three channels, two Chinese channels and Headline News. The hotel was adequate for sleeping and was in short walking distance to the Cermack/Chinatown CTA stop.

Very chinese-interesting location

Inside Chicago's Chinatown, my favorite hotel when it is hard to find rooms during convenions at the nearby McCormick Center. The hotel is surrounded by Oriental restaurants and shops. Short on staff and amenities, this is a basic, no-frills hotel to bed down.

Not bad, if you don't care about bugs.

Smallest room I have ever been, it wasn't ready at check in time (3pm). I just sleep there and it was near the McCornik Place Convention center. The last night I found some bugs running on the carpet and walls and I wondered if they were there the days before that.

Location, the Station, the Chinatown

This hotel is at the heart of Chicago's very own and unique Chinatown. Close to Midway Airport by CTA (Metro) and minutes away from downtown Chicago. If you like exploring the culture, practice your Mandarin or Cantonese, this is a friendly place to do so. If you like Zse Chuan food... the best Zagat rated restaurants are a few minutes away. The train station is just around the corner. No, you don't hear the noise. Rooms are comfortable with showers, don't expect mints on your pillow type of hotel. Hotel service are courteous, friendly, and they do speak English (or Mandarin and Cantonese). You have to place yourself in the Asian culture, so don't bring your 5 star attitude to this place. I personally like to walk so I walked from the Hotel to Grand Central Station and it is a great walk. So for young adventurous; or walkaholics this is a cheap, great, place to spend the nights. Think about it, a hotel room is for sleeping not for watching cable tv or room service. Chicago is a city to explore and this hotel allows you to do it on a budget.

The Lao Sze Chuan restaurant is the best spicy Asian restaurant. In the same place you can also find Hunan, Cantonese, Szechuan, and Shanghai cuisine.

NEVER GO THERE. MAKES DIRTY LOOK GOOD

Where do I begin: First, the furniture was broken! The bed sheets were dirty. When I asked for new ones, they couldnt provide me with any because they didnt know where the maid kept them. I tried to switch rooms and when I did, the other room had mold in it. I could hear the prostitutes having sex. No Janitorial service... someone threw up in the main bathroom and it sat there for a few hours because the front desk didnt want to clean it up. There is no elevator. Just pay extra money and stay somewhere else.
