The three best things about this 4-floor hotel are its location - an easy walk (just about 2 blocks) from Union Station, in the center of Chinatown and close to downtown. Right next store is a convenience store selling coffee & gelato, plus the usual fare. Check-in was easy. There's free wi-fi, but be sure to ask the desk clerk...

I spent 5 nights here in May and it quite possibly rates as the worst hotel I've visited (and I visit the developing world heaps)!!!! Rooms are like you have stepped into a time machine and are hugely dated. Bathroom wasn't clean and even though serviced I think all they did was pour some bleach around for the smell of...

If you want a low hassle visit to downtown LA, Metro Plaza is the place. I was on Amtrak and the Metro Plaza is a block from Union Station. It is also across from Chinatown and Olvera Street. The place is solidly built and the rooms clean. I really like the spacious and tiled bathroom. A great value in a...

We didn't expect the Ritz, for what we were paying, but everything we needed (proximity to Union Station, good parking, courteous staff, cleanliness of room) was provided. The room maid went out of her way to meet extra requests. The staff were very helpful and security conscious for our parking needs. For price, proximity to Union Station (-3 blocks), convenient...

From airport I rode flyway bus to union station. From bus stop, through lobby of union station, totally I walked 10 minutes to this hotel. Room facilities are very old but room is clean and acceptable. You can eat in China Town or Mexico street. Breakfast was simple but nice. In Union station information center you can get free maps.

Simple, affordable and convenient. Travelled with two young children and we walked, lugged our luggages and a stroller from hotel to Union station to catch Pacific Surfliner to San Diego. Walking distant from hotel to Union station took about 10-15mins. Room was clean and it was safe to walk around the area at night.

Not much to look at from the outside, but this hotel (and staff) pleasantly surprised us. Just two blocks from Union Station (from where you can easily get to anywhere), Chinatown (v.safe, even at night), and Skid Row (few derro's but they don't seem to bother anyone). The area's a bit like "little Mexico" but the locals are v.friendly. Hotel's...
