We're generally good with budget, especially if the location is right, but this was just a bit too budget for us. Smaller than expected, with the bathroom right at the foot of the bed (and the door didn't close fully). The deal breaker, though, was the hot-cold-hot shower, sometimes a dribble, sometimes more.

Very small room with a most peculiar odour that was at times overpowering. Maybe an option for one night but would definitely recommend looking elsewhere for longer stays. Located in Downtown LA close to good food court but long walk to places of interest.

The hotel somehow has an air of Japanese serenity, and though our room was small it had all the usual amenities. Best yet, it's a short walk to the Grand Central Market with its many ethnic food vendors, and only a slightly longer trek to the Walt Disney Concert Hall and the MOCA. The DASH bus stop is only a...

The hotel is located at Hill Street on a quiet neighborhood but close to food haven at Grand Central Market which has plenty of options. Rooms are small but we had a king size bed which occupies about half of the room space. Ours was at the closest to the street so we anticipate some noise. But thankfully we had...

We stayed in a room with a king bed. There wasn't much room to maneuver around, but we did okay. The bedroom looked like it had been recently renovated, it looked like they forgot to upgrade the bathroom. There was an old tile floor that looked like it could be nice if someone would re-grout it. Also, even though this...

Most of the people did point out that this Hotel is quite good if you are on a budget. But I cannot share this. First I do not consider 150.- USD for a night to be any close to low budget, and for this hotel this is way to much money.... Rooms: very small rooms, and I mean very small....

The staff at the Kawada Hotel are friendly, professional, and helpful. The location is reasonably convenient to downtown LA. That's where the positives end. My room had a very loud humming/vibrating noise at all hours, day and night. There wasn't any hot water in the shower one of the days. The internet only worked one of the three days I...

Kawada Hotel is located in an ideal Downtown LA location. Walking distance from Grand Park, Grand Central market and landmarks. Valet parking is offered for $22/day but I parked in a lot next to the hotel for much cheaper. Hotel staff is friendly and check in is a breeze. As for the rooms, it is apparent that they recently underwent...

A budget hotel close to the Metro in Downtown L.A. Felt safe and secure, all staff friendly/courteous. Reported cold shower to John the Manager. Within 30 mins the Janitor in the bathroom running the hot water and explaining you turn it to the RIGHT for hot water.DOH! Room quiet and clean bed firm/comfortable. Everything worked.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
