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

This place is HUGELY over priced for what you get! We had a pathetically tiny room - smallest run down hotel room I have seen! We had two separate single beds pushed side by side, one of which was some sort of roller bed & it squeaked and creaked at any movement, the other wasn't on wheels but was of... More

I stayed here on the 30th and 31st of May 2014. It is convenient, the staff are lovely, but the nightclub downstairs kept me up my second night and after I had been told that I'd be getting a call to apologize from the manager, I never got a call. Many hotels nearby to choose from, no reason to book... More

This hotel was chosen by a travel agent to fit in with a shuttle to San Diego. It was no where near the Lux Bus depot. I have been to LA twice before and I should have known better. The staff were fantastic as my arrival time was early morning from Honolulu. The room was a bit poky but I... More
