First night I arrived to the hotel, I found reception closed and doorbell wasn't working. I had to knock on the door 3 times until this sleepy guy came to open the door. He placed me on room 215 on second floor and ice machine was quite far away. Room itself was really comfortable, comfortable king-size bed, clean carpets, good walls, no stink, nothing really to complain. Heater was really neat and working, without it would've been really uncomfortably chilly. Safe was working and really useful. Alleys outside of the rooms were bit worn out, but wasn't really bothering me.
Breakfast was as continental and tiny as it can be in 2** hotel. Some (kinda dry) bread, croissants, coffee, tea, fruits, juices.. was so much better than nothing. During my week-long stay, there was 3 women I got to know in the reception, all they were really helpful, friendly and asking how was my day. It's their job.
Location of this hotel is decent, only about 5-10 minutes to the hotel and only one mile to the beach. Target is just couple blocks north from the hotel. In the evening hours, it took me only 1 hour from Downtown by bus, metro and taxi to the hotel. If you have car, the location is really good, even to the Santa Monica and Beverly Hills area.
Overally, I had really good stay in Crimson Hotel and if you want a reasonably decent hotel, I would definitely recommend it.
