On the Broadway strip of Chinatown, downtown LA- under 100 dollars for an extremely clean room in a well maintained beautifully appointed Chinese hotel. Friendly staff, close to everything- bathroom a little tight but everything you need.

Really pleasant place to stay in the middle of LA. Close to Dodger Stadium but a twenty minute severe uphill walk. Hotel room is standard mid price US fare but clean and good air con. Great welcome at check in with good advice on where to eat. Fully recommended.

I was in the area and I found this place online located in Chinatown and I decided to stay because of all the great reviews on yelp. When I arrived at the hotel I was greeted by this sweet young man named Hoi. He is so cute and such a flirt. I bet if there were no cameras he would... More

So I was looking for a place to stay for the 116th Annual Golden Dragon Parade and I found the Royal Pagoda. It seemed OK, so I booked the room for two nights. It was a pleasant stay, room was comfortable. It's just as advertised, a basic room, which is fine for me since I don't require much to be... More

The place is clean, comfortable, cozy, and quiet. It is a family-owned business and the owner is very very friendly and accommodating-- even gave a discounted price for the bottled water that we bought. There may be complains about language barrier but if you will just listen carefully with what they are saying, you would surely understand. Let's not judge... More

We stayed at the Royal Pagoda on 1/17/15 - 1/19/15. The motel is in the heart of Chinatown. The exterior is deceiving...but it's quite nice. The rooms are small but very clean. The desk staff was pleasant and helpful. The location is awesome! You have your choice of restaurants and it's not too far from Olvera Street or Union Station.... More

Typical no frills motel but very clean,well kept, good beds, quiet, easy parking, free wifi and safe neighborhood. Perfect if you are just looking for a place to rest your head in central LA and don't want to spend a lot of money. Lots of restaurants within walking distance.
