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.

Although wi-fi never works, and the whole hotel was like being sent here directly from 20 years ago, where else in Chicago can you find a hotel with such location? Staff is also helpful.

Worst possible

Everything is broken including wifi. Worst attitude. In the second day even the hot water was broken and after complaining three times they finally admited it was broken and did not repair it even on the third day morning. Their ridiculous solution was to offer a TEN dollars discount and their manager just hanged the phone when I tried to talk to him!!! Of course their clerk did not care at all either. DON'T SATY THERE! IT IS CHEAP BUT THEY WILL GIVE YOU WORSE EXPERIENCE!

Simple, good value

The cheapest hotel I could find, and not remotely as terrible as some of the reviews suggest. The hotel is just a few minutes from the Cermak/ Chinatown stop of the red line, and you can be in the Loop in 10 minutes. Staff have been very helpful and friendly. My room was spacious enough and clean. OK, some of the bedlinen was a bit threadbare, the wifi can be slow, some lightbulbs were gone in the bathroom and the shower cubicle is a bit barren- but everything functions, there's a telly and there's hot water. This was much better than similar cheap hotels I've had in big cities in Europe. I'd stay there again and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends.

Friendly staff but very cold

I just spent the night there, it was so cold and though I used the extra heating to be able to sleep, the restroom was freezing. The rest room was clean.

Fine for the price

With a 3 night stay in Chicago, the Chinatown Hotel gave me overall savings of $100. The hotel was adequate; the hallway carpets were in a dreadful state but my room was fine and the bathroom better than average. I would have liked a coffee maker in the room but there were tea and coffee making facilities in the lounge downstairs. The wifi worked well and the location perfect for me. Just across the street from the CTA and with a good Chinese bakery almost next door. It worked for me.

Not Worth the Savings

If you think you are getting a good deal because this is one of the hotels closest to downtown Chicago, please think again. You are better off paying a few dollars more and a short CTA train ride. During my stay I was welcomed with a loose door handle to my own door, missing smoke detector, unsanitary bathroom (the used soap from previous guests were still in the cramped shower stall; the bed wreaked of a salty smoked unpleasantness, hair folicles on the bedsheet from previous guests and even some streaks of blood. The blinds in the bathroom were also damaged.

Cheap but adequate

There was no elevator, and the room was small. Nevertheless, it was adequate and clean. Some of the other customers complained about cleanliness in their rooms, but mine was fine. For the price, it is what I expected -- certainly not luxury, but gave me a place to sleep for three nights in Chicago -- so long as you can get from Chinatown to wherever you are trying to go.
