    The location of this hotel is quite good. It only takes 5 minutes from the subway station(Vermont/ Santa Monica). The room condition is really good. There is a kitchen sink in the room involving the refrigerator. However the breakfast is so so.

    Once I started using the subway it was great. It was only a block away and goes pretty much any where you want to go and comes every 10 minutes.

    Very good value for money, Clean spacious rooms, great location. Near to metro station, All attractions are easily accessible, couple of stops away using the metro! There are some dining options and fast food joints nearby, 24x7 subway as well. Breakfast is awesome! Special mention to Chef HUGO! Lovely omelletes attending to various customisation from guests! I rank his preparation among the best I have had in various places that I have stayed. Not to mention the delicious waffles! Housekeeping is very good! Staff friendly and responsive! Couldn’t ask for more!!

    a little disappointed”
    This is the second time I stayed in this hotel because I was quite satisfied with their location and breakfast, but this time I had some issues I did not encounter before. First, check-in was long. The staff took away my passport and disappeared for a while. Second, when I used my laptop to connect with Wifi, I had to try many times before success. Third, the shower temperature was volatile. The water was either too hot or too cold. The flow was so weak that I felt it hard to clean my body. Nevertheless, if you don't drive, I would still recommend the hotel because it provides easy access to bus and train.

    The hotel looked great from the outside but in need of repair on the inside. The room was ok but the bed creaked with any movement. The pool area was good. The male staff member that checked us in wasn’t friendly which was disappointing. Thankfully there was another person who was much nicer.

    Be careful”
    I would not recommend this hotel for one reason. Before you are able to check in, you must sign a waiver. In the waiver, it states that the hotel is not liable for theft, damage or loss of your possessions (or money) whilst they are in your hotel room. I have been to many hotels and never had to sign any waiver like this. I had a chat to my lawyer and she believes that the hotel is dodging their responsibility for the security of your possessions. If your stuff goes missing, the hotel will point to the waiver that you signed. I was not comfortable in this hotel at all for this reason. Otherwise, the rooms are large but the bathroom is tiny and dated.

    Good Location”
    Location is very good since it is located along a main road and accessible to nearby restaurants, pharmacy, some groceries. I booked for 3 persons but they provided me with only a queen bed. And when i approached the admission counter, they said it is because i clicked the queen bed option at Agoda. But then, when i booked, the choices given was only a queen bed although it says 3 heads for the room. i was thinking they will put an extra bed in the room. In the end, i had to switch to 2 queen bed room and made to pay more. No complimentary water was provided (most of the hotels i booked before provides).

    This is a lovely hotel in a run down part of town. It is very close to the train line which is a huge bonus considering the traffic in LA. You have very little choice in the area to eat but if you plan to eat and then return, it is perfect.

    disappointing”
    a little bit disappointed about the hotel. The location is more or less 20mins away from universal studio, Hollywood walk of fame. It is also few mins away from restaurant and local shops so it convenient. However, it is within downtown where few homeless are walking around. The parking is secure however it was not indicated that I have to pay additional $22 per night even I am the guest of the hotel. The cleanliness is so-so. The breakfast staff is also not nice and very intimidating. Not a staff that I expect from a hotel industry. Overall, it was over-rated hotel.

The air con was very noisy. The room nest to us air con could be heard in our room and kept us awake at night unless it was turned off. With the very hot weather in LA the room gets very warm at night. The hotel is close public transport, train & bus. We caught the supershuttle to and from the airport.

    Location, breakfast & cleanliness.
    The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were able to walk to delicious restaurants nearby, about 15 minutes down the street. The Fred 62 diner was one of my favourites for a late night snack. The Santa Monica/Vermont subway station was about a 5-10 minute walk & there are a couple different bus stops nearby. I recommend this place and would definitely stay there again.

    We stayed in the hotel for a couple of days with kids while visiting LA. Location is very good, room (standard double bed room) was fine for 2 adults and 2 kids (aged 7 and 9). We spent lots of time visiting the LA area. Breakfast was great compared to other hotels in US we stayed in. Good place for the price.

    For the price, no complain ”
    Friendly staff, extremely helpful. Location wise, for those who plans to take metro subway, this is perhaps the best value hotel. Thirdly internet is free. Speed was sufficient.
    My biggest complain was perhaps the cleanliness of the hotel. It looks clean but it doesnt feel clean. But its also not fair to complain since this is an old building. And for the price we pay for it to stay within hollywood, maybe i shouldnt complain after all. Secondly food variety during breakfast was poor. For a vegan, not much to choose. Also staff there not as friendlier as those in the frontdesk. Pluses: Big plus for the location if u planning to spend more time in hollywood. Its just few stops away from santa monica station. And it took me only 2 bus chg to get to venice beach...so location was super. But u planning to use taxi, forget it. I havent seen a single taxi passing in front of d hotel during my 3 nites stay. Conclusion: if u planning to spend more time outside travelling and on a tight budget, this is the hotel for u! Gud luck!

    Terrible”
    Nothing is good.
    Worst hotel that I stayed in California. System broke down upon my check in so have to wait. Poor wifi connection. During my 3 nights stay, the housekeeping lady didnt replace the paper cup, shower gel and shampoo that already been used, didnt bother to clean the room properly. Worst housekeeping service that I encountered. Towels look old, my spec gone missing luckily its not very expensive. When I was dragging my luggage out from the room at 10.55am, phone rang and I turned back to pick up, its hotel staff called to chase for check out. Staff limited the breakfast portion by not replacing the food, only thing I'll give a positive rating is Hugo did a good job in cooking Omelette. This hotel is not value for money at all, I WILL NOT recommend to anyone. Luckily I only stayed for 3 nights.

    The Hotel is near to Metro which only take you around 5 mins. The breakfast is quite good and the room is large. But it a bit dangerous at night, seems not suitable for girls who back hotel late. We complain for the room, as we find it is not clean and with hair on the bed which did not belog to us, but the staff just ignore our complain. It is good that we can join some tour at the counter and shuttle will pick u up in the morning.
