I had booked at the Kawada for two stays with an away tour inbetween. When we arrived reception was empty and we had to wait, when they came back they were polite and quickly sorted us. The room was very small - not a problem for us as we use our hotel rooms very little when sightseeing. However on this... More

I stayed at the Kawada hotel as part of an extend stays program. Yes, the rooms are small, but they were clean and the area that the Kawada is in is very nice. In fact, it's up and coming. If you're looking for a crash pad or a place to save money while still being in Downtown Los Angeles, I'd... More

Everything in this hotel seem to date from the 1980s or 1970s if not earlier, including the furniture which is very basic and of very poor quality. Besides, the staff can't care less about customers needs. As there is no tea bag provided with the kettle and I had a call and needed a jot tea late at night I... More

Value for money. Old style but if it is refurbished they should keep some of the old fittings. It would lose something if it were to be "plasticised". I was amazed to see how close we were to the Los Angeles Philharmonic Hall so a good venue for theatre goers. One stop on the Metro to the wonderful Union station.

I booked Kawada thru Booking.com and got a good deal for 4nights, sept2-6/2013, and as usual I would read reviews from tripadvisor before making any final decisions. Room was small and got a kinda strange smell once I entered, I guess it came from the carpet just underneath the aircond which I cud spot some stains on it. Opening the... More

First of all you cannot expect too much from a hotel like this. It is basic accommodation. Clean bed to sleep in. Lock on your door. Roof and walls. Its good if your not botherwd by fancy accommodation and are travelling on a budget but still want privacy of your own room. And then its got a good location, walking... More

we stayed 2 nights here and the room is good enough. It located in downtown which is very close to Little Tokyo. I will recommended for who just stay a few days in Los Angeles without high expectation on hotel facilities and room size - it is tiny, but as a hongkonger i think it's acceptable.
