This hotel does not have double beds, so my partner and I turned up after a long flight to find that we had to sleep in single beds despite booking a double with our tour operator, and the room was too small to move the beds and bedside table around! The room had a bit of an unclean feel to... More

I stayed here recently for three nights. The first person we met was the valet, who was extremely helpful. He gave us tips on where to eat and pointed out the Central Market, a block and a half away. The front desk staff were excellent, check-in and check out was quick and housekeeping was really on top of it. My... More

This hotel is a great hotel. Its not really a hotel, but rather a hostel. The rooms are very average and cozy. This would be an ideal place for students or people that cant afford much. The staff especially Estefan at the front desk is a wonderful guy and always willing to help. The location of this hotel is also... More

The hotel is clean. The staff is nice and helpful. The location is great for going to L.A. Courts or to the State of California building. The quality is like a nice motel, nothing more. It offers Government rates that are within the allotted budget.

This hotel is excellent value and in an interesting location. I stayed in this area because of the Walt Disney Concert Hall. It is a hilly area, and there’s a bit of a climb to the Walt, but the hot weather hadn’t really set in. There is normally a funicular thingo called Angel Flight, but it seems to be closed... More

I stayed at the Kawada hotel overnight on Sunday 29th June 2014. I checked in at around 6pm and headed up to my room. Only one of the two lifts was working and the staircase is emergency use only so there was a bit of a wait. I arrived at my room and the first two things I noticed were... More

This hotel is classified as a 2-star property on Priceline. In my view the hardware is older but well-maintained. My room was clean & functional. All the staff i met were courteous and helpful. I would stay there again.

I was expecting nightmares after seeing some of the Trip Advisor reviews on here, but it was fine, and I'd say that next time I stay in L.A. I'll most likely opt for the same place. In terms of prices, I haven't looked at other places enough to know if it was cheap or not. It didn't seem too bad... More

Worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Nightclub downstairs opens until 3am and it feels like you've entered the club the second you enter your room. Room was shaking every night until 3am when we could finally go to sleep. Second day there was a World Cup match being played on a big screen in the nightclub and we were woken... More

I was staying at The Kawada with a large group at the end of a 5 week camping tour, after our visit I wished that I'd stick with the tent! Dated and shabby decor, and an overpowering smell in the hallways that can only be likened to that of a poorly kept nursing home. Turns out the smell in the... More
