Positive Reviews

Handy for LA attractions

Situated in Koreatown, handy for Wilshire Boulevard and with easy access to Hollywood and downtown LA, this hotel received top marks from many guests for its central location. Additionally, visitors were delighted by the sheer variety of bars and restaurants within walking distance of the property.

Friendly staff with local knowledge

It seems that the staff here - especially the reception team - are exceedingly friendly, accommodating and helpful. A number of guests commented that they were granted early check-ins and some also received great local tips on where to eat and drink close to this boutique hotel.

Free parking a plus

Negative Reviews

Low shower pressure, loud AC, dirty floors

By all accounts, there appear to be issues at this hotel with the water pressure. Unfortunately, many guests reported very low pressure - regardless of the floor they were on - throughout their stays. While many also commented that the in-room air conditioning units are rather loud, others were troubled by the dirt and dust they found on the hardwood floors of their rooms.

Basic amenities and bare walls

For some, the minimalist esthetic of this property is perfect. If, however, you are hoping for more in terms of amenities, this hotel experience may be just a little too basic. Many guests noted the lack of an iron in their rooms while others would have welcomed an ice machine. Some also commented that the bare walls of this property could really do with a bit more decoration.

Parking problems

Yes, the parking is free here. However, some guests were uncomfortable with the underground arrangements while others felt that space was disappointingly limited.
