Where to begin... While one of the least expensive hotels I could find on this particular weekend (booked late), it needs to be cheaper or free!! Hostles are way cleaner and have lots more to offer!! Hair, scum and dirt in bathroom! Stained carpets. No buckets for ice, no elevator, stained dirty hallway carpets, and furniture is like they picked... More

The sheet did not fit around the mattress, the room was clean on first sight but hair in the sink and dust in the corners showed not the cleanness I expect in a hotel (even a cheap one). The shower regulator knob was loose (fell down), but the shower is nice (when you are passed the black spots -fungi- on... More

I was looking for a hotel where I could get a two room suite at an economical price, close both to downtown and Hyde Park, and this hotel fit the bill. The bathroom was remodeled and clean, which was nice since the rest of the room was a little worn. Our stay did not produce any bad surprises; it is... More

Pros: Affordable rate for budget conscious travelers, near Metro station, about 2 stops from Downtown loop, nice n clean bathroom, free wifi, tv with cable, coffeemaker in the room but bring the coffee! I appreciate that the guy at the reception allowed us to check-in at 6am as our flight was quite early. I also like that its quiet and... More

As a sensual experience this hotel was at best dull, at worst it set the bottom of the range we stayed in for a two week vacation towards the bottom of the cost range for the US. Nothing was nice, nothing was hideous, thats about the best I can say. For the first time in my memory I woke due... More

this hotel's service is very good and Chinese style. I like it very much, and its room service is excellent. If you want to study some Chinese life style, it is a perfect choice. Walking on the street give a good remainder of my family.

I stayed in Chinatown Hotel for the weekend of the Chicago Marathon. The location was just perfect for the expo, a five minute jog, about 0.7 miles down the street. The buses to downtown Chicago were regular and convenient, and if you fancy walking, its really only about 30-40 minutes walk from the centre of the city. I found the... More

stayed here because we were going to Illini game at Soldiers field and then the Bears game the next day. Place was cheap and an easy walk to the games and Michigan Ave. Room was awful - the fire detector and the clasp to the door lock were in the dresser drawer with the screws. Chinatown itself is fun however... More

This is a great budget hotel, bed was comfy, AC was good, TV was good and shower was fine. The electrics were a bit dodgy but I think this was the same for the whole of the US! The hotel is on the orange line which is about a ten minute ride from downtown Chicago, there were maintenance works on... More
