Hotel Normandie

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The best thing about this hotel was the staff. My bestie and I got into town late but the hotel staff accommodated us. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the room. The beds were super comfortable and the housekeepers were friendly. I enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and the restaurant attached to the hotel. If you are looking for a safe place to stay with great food options, then look no further. Hotel Normandie is great!

The atmosphere of this older hotel is great. However, be prepared to stay at an older hotel where the windows do lock/close properly and the entire building is aged. The mini-fridge sounded like it had a dying motor, the windows and doors don't seal well so there is a lot of hallway/street noise and the bath tub would not hold water. There's not a lot of parking in this area so also be prepared to spend $30 for valet.

Upon arrival my room wasn't ready and it was late in the afternoon. Then when I got to the room it smelled of cigar smoke which did not dissipate. Later in the evening there was a lot of noise outside my window, like a cigar lounge atmosphere, loud laughing and conversation which made it almost impossible to sleep. In the morning I was greeted by a big cockroach in the bathroom. I had to kill it. I left it for the front desk and told them about it at Check out. Totally unacceptable and gross. It was an old kind of hipster hotel which I thought would be kind of cool, but I actually thought to myself that it was more what I would expect of a hostel.

The hotel is great, however there are a couple of things that would make it better. My sister and I stayed here and there was only one mirror in the room, the one above the sink. If there was another one that was a full length it would've made it much easier for us to get ready. There is also no room service, you can always order food delivered and meet them downstairs but I think it would make it just a little bit better if the hotel partnered with some restaurants or meal delivery and provided room service. The breakfast is free and good and was one of the deciding factors of staying there. The rooms are tidy and the beds comfortable. Would stay here again, especially if they add full length mirrors.

Right in the heart of koreatown, great food and shopping

The hotel was mediocre for the price. Breakfast was lacking and there were not enough amenities for families with kids. The hotel staff was amazing but the valet staff was not as friendly. The location was good if you wanted to be in Koreatown. There were tons of places to eat and drink nearby. At a lower price, I would recommend this hotel; but at $200+ per night, I would suggest somewhere else.

Very nice and accommodating staff. The room and facilities nice and fit the aesthetic of the hotel. I have stayed here before and would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a bargain in LA and being close to the Metro.

This is my third trip to downtown LA for business, and this hotel has been my favorite stay, hands down!! The historic beauty, comfortable beds, amazingly helpful staff, delicious complimentary breakfast and most amazing location within walking distance of so much are just a few of the things that will bring me back to Hotel Normandie for any time I am in the area in the future.

Staff were very helpful and courteous. Hotel location is very central

The hotel is super cute with a lovely lobby and nice looking rooms. Love the old wooden floors. We were on the 2nd floor and it was so noisy. You could hear neighboring rooms and whatever was going on outside.

Great service, comfortable bed and pillows. Lots of charm and character.

Great boutique hotel experience at The Hotel Normandie! Restored to it's 1920's grandeur, reminded us of many hotels we have stayed in while in Europe. Service was superb, check in fast and efficient, and The Normandie Club speakeasy attached was a great place for a late night cocktail after a concert at The Greek. Continental breakfast was substantial with strong coffee and homemade pastries, granola, hard boiled eggs, yogurt. Try Hotel Normandie for a unique experience in Koreatown. Koreatown itself is full of great restaurants and we even had a chance to sneak in a morning at The Crystal Spa for a salt scrub, massage, and use of their many unique sauna rooms.

We had a great stay the hotel normandie, but it may not be for everyone. It's an older building, with one (slow) elevator, and smaller rooms. But the hotel staff was extremely friendly and the happy hour was a great addition. We had a great stay, but it all depends on what you're looking for and expecting.

I needed a hotel in this area, and I chose Hotel Normandie over the nearby Line Hotel primarily because of price and value, especially considering that a continental breakfast buffet and evening wine reception are included—both very nice. I found my room very clean and very tastefully decorated. The decor is modern antique combined with suggestions of art deco and early-20th-century charm—a pleasing blend of old with new. Koreatown isn’t very clean. As of March 2017 it’s at the bottom of the top 50 in crime by neighborhood—search the web for [latimes crime by neighborhood].

Such as european style and nice building. Dining room for breakfast is excellent and all staffs are welcoming.

Nice stay in a historic building. This was my second stay, came back after a year and they have continued to improve the hotel. The beds and bathrooms are quite nice, good bath products. New since last year is a simple included continental breakfast which is a nice addition. Nothing elaborate but it added to the value of an already fairly priced hotel.

very nice crews. Low price and High quality , really... surprisingly efficiency in light of hotel price.

Lovely hotel, great stay. Would definitely stay there again and was close to everything we wanted to do.

Amazing only downside is there wasent really a nice view just of the street

Hotel appears cheap and lacking in enthusiasm. Bathroom decor is mediocre. A painting was hung upside down and this shows how less they care about their establishment. Hotel housekeeping staff failed to provide the basic amenities, shower gel, conditioner, shampoo, body lotion, and complimentary bottled water on daily basis as promised. Request for a toothbrush took more than two calls to front desk and over few hours to receive. Noise from street is noticeable through hotel room wall despite the room being off the street.
