Guide to Koreatown
Things to Do in KoreatownView Map
Koreatown is one of LA’s best-kept secrets. It’s a part of town that’s populated by native Koreans who have brought their traditional cuisine and culture with them as well as a large Latino population. This melting pot situation has yielded a few delicious results, in particular Roy Choi’s Latin-inspired Korean food truck Kogi, Guelguetza mole house and Beer Belly.
Venturing away from the familiar into the vast collection of strip malls, eateries, spas and karaoke joints that make up Koreatown is intimidating to some, so most of Angelenos to be found are the locals or long-time residents in search of delicious Korean barbecue and a night of inebriated karaoke.
This neighborhood is credited with having the highest concentration of bars and nightclubs in Southern California and many of these establishments are open for 24 hours.
For the most part, Koreatown has managed to circumvent the tourist radar and build a unique experience in LA, one that’s both authentically Korean and a cultural mash-up.

Our Low Price Hotel Guarantee
We are confident that our hotel prices are guaranteed to be the lowest rate you can find. If you find a lower rate for your hotel on another site, we’ll refund the difference to you. Book with us and enjoy total peace of mind!
If you find a lower rate at any time up until hotel's cancellation window, we'll match the price. The lower price you find needs to be for the same dates, length of stay and room type.
Found a better price?
- The lower price you found must be available on another website directed to consumers in the same locale, and must be for the same hotel, dates and room type.
- If you used a coupon/discount voucher when you made your original booking, you can still claim under the guarantee. We will use the total discounted price you paid and compare this to the lower price you found in order to calculate your refund.
- If you have made a booking which cannot be cancelled — whether it is non-refundable or if you are already within the cancellation window for the hotel — then you can't claim under the guarantee. Bookings that were part of a specific promotion (e.g. 3 nights for the price of 2) are also excluded from claiming under the guarantee.
- Once we have confirmed that you are due a refund under the guarantee we will issue the refund to the card you paid with at the time of booking. We will process your refund immediately but it may take your bank up to 30 days to process it and for it to show on your statement.
