Pros: convenience
Cons: improve continental breakfast.

Convenient to Union Station and ground transportation. Hotel appears older and outdated and is on fringe of Chinatown. Good for overnight stays. Continental breakfast is marginal and needs more variety.

Historic Los Angeles at your doorstep

Posted Oct 21, 2014
Pros: I like the generous sized room, the free WiFi, free breakfast and 24 hour coffee and the location!
Cons: I think if the lobby were freshened up with a lighter wall paint it would look more inviting.
Location: There is a Subway Sandwich shop and a small convenience store next door to the hotel. Historic Olivera Street is just across the street so I enjoyed a
I have stayed at this hotel twice and found it excellent value and so convenient to Union Station and Olivera Street. As a female solo traveller I require a feeling of safety and this hotel fits the bill. I arrived on a train at Union Station and I could have walked up to the hotel but since it was dark I took a taxi for a few dollars. The foyer of the hotel is a bit dismal in appearance but the desk is staffed around the clock and a decent breakfast is included in the price. Free WiFi and 24 hour coffee are welcome bonuses. My room was generous in size and very clean. It contained a large bed, table and chairs, small fridge, a desk, tv, plenty of counter space, air-conditioning and a very clean bathroom. The hotel staff and helpful and were especially considerate when I needed to book transportation to LAX for my flight back to Australia. There are inexpensive buses from Union Station but I like to treat myself to a fixed price vehicle (Leon) which the hotel recommends.

Convenient & inexpensive

Posted Oct 16, 2014

Cons: Air conditioning was noisy.
Location: Convenient to transport: one block from Union Station, which serves as a hub for public transport (buses, metro). Convenient to Chinatown.
Hotel should be satisfactory for anyone expecting a clean, comfortable room. If you seek prestige, look elsewhere. Only problem was rather noisy air conditioning. Breakfast was satisfactory. Obviously popular with respectable latinos.

Room was quite spacious, staff friendly, a basic breakfast included and best of all within walking distance of Union station meaning ready access to Amtrak trains, airport bus, and subway system.

Hotel close to Los Angeles Amtrak station.

Posted Sep 21, 2014
Pros: Close to Amtrak Station.
Cons: Air conditioning.
Location: Olvera street very nice. Very Mexican style. Lots of Mexican restaurants. Lots of souvenirs.
Hotel hallways not air conditioned, very hot. Rooms were OK. Air Conditioner, window unit, points directly at bed not very comfortable. Vents on unit broken could not adjust.

I arrived very early to watch the games. He let me check in and went to my room to be sure the tv was working well. The hotel is old, but well maintained. The staff bends over backward to meet your needs.

Changes have been made

Posted Aug 2, 2014
Pros: Well set up for inner city visitors and train travellers.
Location: Downtown LA but interesting and close to Olivera Street and China Town.
Very handy to Union Station, We stayed there two or three years ago. It was a bit seedy but inexpensive and quite adequate for us. This time [July 2014] we found it upgraded inside and out, re-staffed, with clean and well-appointed rooms, a good complementary breakfast. We recommend it for all.
