The location is fun, in the midst of China Town filled with great places to eat. The room was clean, and had all the bare necessities. Although the bathroom could've been cleaned a little better, ie. Bathroom light covered in light dust, overall I did not feel uncomfortable in the place. The rooms are small but if you're just looking... More

The motel is in china town, just a few meters down the street you find quite a lot of Chinese restaurants of all kinds. For everything else in LA I recommend a car, traffic is horrible but parking readily available everywhere. The motel offers parking as well, even though( we stayed for 4 nights) in the evening you might have... More

Needed a place at the last minute and found this. Great place, fairly cheap for LA. Great location, right in the heart of Chinatown. Rooms were nice, with hardwood floors instead of the usual gross carpet. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was not really updated, but it was fine. Room comes with fridge. There is a microwave for use at the... More

Sometimes when I need to stay in LA, I just want someplace clean and located close to downtown. The Royal Pagoda fits the bill perfectly! I've always found the staff to be friendly, as well as the other travelers whom you invariably talk to while checking in or getting coffee or tea at the front desk. The rooms are clean... More

An overnight in L A and we needed somewhere close to Union Station. It is unpretentious as you might expect from downtown accommodation. No breakfast, but coffee and tea available at reception. Plenty of restaurants in this part of Chinatown.

Nice hotel, clean and tidy. Great location and friendly staff. The rooms are of the old-fashioned motel size, with gigantic beds and a bathroom you can have a party in. No this is not a Fancy-Schmanzy 7-star Hotel, but for the money, you could do a whole lot worse.
