Shelter Hotels Los Angeles
Ranked #152 of 355 Hotels in Los Angeles
Reviewed 26 May 2017

We booked the hotel due to its proximity to friends living in the area, and stayed 4 nights. We were very happy with our choice - the hotel is very clean, with spacious modern rooms and very friendly and helpful staff.
The rooms are spacious and have everything you might need - comfortable bed, nice bathroom with a hairdryer, coffee making facilities (if you prefer tea - it is also available from reception, as well as refreshing cucumber- or lemon water in the lobby).
The hotel has a parking garage for just $20/day, is close to Hollywood and many major attractions in the area. The price for rooms is very reasonable considering the quality you get.
We will gladly stay here again, and will wholeheartedly recommend to everyone!

The hotel is well located, close to the "hot tourists points" of LA. The room is very good, comfortable bed and clean bathroom. However, we order to change some towels and receive some toiletry itens, and they never came. Moreover, the phone from front desk rang forever at night and no one picked up. Be aware that you also have to pay for parking ($30/night).

Room was clean and spacious, and bathroom too.

Check-inn was different to any I've had as it was just a desk and a person with information, rather than a reception with people.

Location was great, easy to KTown and any transport requirements too. Travel into downtown LA approx 20mins via Uber.

Wonderful place to stay in K-town. Checking in is a bit like checking into a hostel, person sitting at a desk with a laptop and copying your id. All the staff we encountered were nice and helpful. The room was large and clean. The windows opened which was nice. The elevator is a little slow. They have a pool, ping pong table, and outdoor sitting area. The wifi worked great. All in all a great place to stay and explore Koreatown.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the 4th floor.

Just what I needed, in the heart of Korean town. As an Asian, I felt right at home and blended right in (I dunno if non-Asians would feel the same though, as Korean Town is VERY Asian). The hotel itself was more like a "creative" 3-star and so I found it a bit overpriced at $200/night. The desk staff was generally very helpful (artistic, effeminate-type males) except for one young female who seemed quite rude with the way she spoke. A bit of a long walk from the subway, but not bad if the weather is cool. Bed was too soft but this seems common in LA.
