Set just west of downtown and south of Hollywood, Koreatown (or K-Town, as it is locally known) is undergoing a renaissance that has seen its popularity soar in recent years. Staying in one of the Koreatown hotels means having a vibrant nightlife and 24-hour restaurants within walking distance—a rarity in Los Angeles. Come here for the food and the culture, and enjoy being in one of the most exciting parts of the city.
FlyAway express buses will take you from LAX to downtown, where you can then catch the Purple Line metro train into the heart of Koreatown. Public buses and taxis are also options for getting around, but the fastest way for you to travel once you arrive in the city is to rent a car in Koreatown. Once you enter the neighborhood, you will start to feel the unique rhythms of the neighborhood. Business signs and street chatter are just as likely to be in Korean or Spanish as English. K-Town is a melting pot of cultures, and staying in cheap hotels in Los Angeles in the midst of it all can expose you to this wonderfully eclectic scene. Soak in the atmosphere before choosing which tasty local delicacy to try first. Karaoke aficionados will think they have found heaven, as this neighborhood is where the serious performers come to play. And speaking of performances, world-class acts are brought within walking distance to hotels in Koreatown at The Wiltern—a performance venue built in the early 1930s. Sports fans can jump on the metro and take in professional basketball, baseball, or hockey games, depending on the season, while those craving the water can drive 15 miles west to enjoy the Santa Monica Pier and the delights of the Pacific.
