a former hotel from 1928 that's had a spell as senior living and is now apartments.
i've got a few friends who live here, and so i've stopped by a few times. my favorite part of the building is the lobby. great chandeliers with cherubs, and there used to be light fixtures that matched in the lobby as well, but they seem to have disappeared and the empty spots haven't even been painted over.
there is an elevator. but you can't rely on it. if the door isn't closed correctly on any of the floors, it won't move from that floor and come down to you.
the units are tiny bachelors-think dorm room sized, and have these tiny kitchen units that are rather cute-a mini fridge with two burners and a sink on top of it.
there's no AC, but there are ceiling fans.
rent is around $750 a month, utilities included.
seems like a nice starter apartment or a nice place for a grad student to live.

I lived there for 5 years in a TINY little joint on the 4th floor.
It is what it is!!!
i had a lot of fun there. A lot of heartache, too.
I don't miss it.
But, it's not that bad and it does have some 'ghetto cache' to it.

Forget about what you heard about The Kipling from before! A new management company took it over and they are renovating the building. I have been here almost two months and I am having a fabulous time! I think it's a good deal! I love the view from my apartment! All my friends and family think I live in a life sized dollhouse! Anthony Bourdain did a special about Koreatown Los Angeles and it definitely is an up and coming neighborhood! Gangnam style is all I gots to say! Peace out!

I moved into the Kipling about a month ago from Northern California, and so far, I've been very happy. Demetria and Rosemary in the office were very helpful throughout the process of viewing and renting the apartment. I've only had a few small issues with the apartment so far (ex. a wonky faucet and a slow drain), but Rosemary, Daniel and Sergio have been awesome and took care of them quickly. The service has been top notch. Personally, I really like the area, as it's right in the center of the city. Getting anywhere is easy. There's plenty of street parking (if you get a residential parking permit from the city). Finally, the rent is really affordable. I think it's a great deal.

This former hotel is now a cheap, residential apartment complex above a popular Korean bar. Each unit is priced at an affordable 675.00 to 685.00 per month that includes utilities and 80 roaches -- yes, I said it! The apartments are crawling with them. The management is haphazard and inconsistent in dealing with this issue. But who can blame them, really. Apartment complexes rely on the residents to stay clean and orderly in order to prevent pest issues. And unfortunately, Kipling is an odd mix of some working professiionals (I know I am) who were wooed by the cheap price that permits one to save some dough for other things, and degenerates -- the majority. Some days when I leave the building and mingle with other residents, It feels as though I'm in a halfway house.
Guess what? BED BUGS!!! A chronic problem that management sluggishly addresses. Doesn't make future tenants aware of the epidemic and won't thoroughly treat the units that have the issue so they keep coming back. And a bed-bug bite is a miserable condition -- it's excruciating. But Rosemary, the manager only has excuses or won't spend the funds to rid the building of the nuisance.
Additionally, there are constant power outtages (at least, three per week), I just had one, that will ruin your computers and hardware, possibly. The water is shut off all day (9am - 4pm) with notice for some kind of repair, at least twice per month, or other times, without notice, it's just OFF!
There are constant "mandatory" inspections for you NAME it, where they have to come into your unit, on a bimonthly basis. Then there maintenance is maintenance, and more maintenance, thus, constantly noise and banging everywhere throughout the day.
Unless you can deal with pest (animal and human), don't move here. I just wish management had been honest with me in the beginning about there many issues, including extensive maintenance and repairs that sound like they're building a railroad under you. You've been warned.
Unless you love misery, don't move here. I think one star is too many.

A friend lived here from 2008-2010. I visited often.
What started out as a charming setup for someone trying to make it in Hollywood soon became an hassle and annoyance, and eventually a get-the-heck-out-of-here.
Water was always a problem. Nothing like going to the bathroom to find the water has been shutoff. There were problems getting Internet (and I think even phone?) set up-old building means old wires and infrastructure. Poor cellphone reception.
First the management changed. The beautiful Art Deco golden light fixtures were gone. The elevator seemed more persnickety than before. The water problems continued. If you were expecting a package, good luck. One amazon order was supposedly delivered but never made it-I suspect they left it outside the building since the doors were always locked and getting in was a problem for delivery folks. I found the best way to send care packages was via USPS...the mailboxes locked and so they could leave a note saying the package was in the main office or that it was at the post office.
And speaking of the main office, at some point they redid it and expanded it out into the lobby.
Unwelcome critters were a problem. Extermination would happen. Not sure it fixed anything.
Street parking was hit or miss. Sometimes it seemed like walking to a restaurant was not much longer than walking from parking spot to apartment.
I admit this was over two years ago. Maybe owners have changed. Maybe they have done major major repairs. Maybe sketchy looking folks don't hang out right outside the doors.
But every time I drive by, it looks like nothing had changed. So, yeah, maybe...but I doubt it.

This place is low price, i pay 635 inc. untilities for a small bachelor. If you live alone and don't want to spend a lot of money this is the place for you. The manager of this building is excellent. He seems to genuinely care about the building, is easy to reach, on top of all repair requests, and all maintenance is completed quickly and well. The hallways, lobby and elevators are cleaned often. I really have had no complaints at all since I moved in.
My apartment has no roaches or vermin and I know that if i need fumigation it is just a request form away.
This place allows dogs (quiet dogs with a deposit)!! and size or breed! which is amazing in LA. and yet I have been living here for over 6 months and have never heard a dog barking!
There is a weight room that is small but well cared for.
There are a couple of downsides... There seem to be some drug dealers who hang around outside at night but they haven't bothered me yet thankfully. There is no parking, except street parking, and the kitchenette does not include a stove, just a small fridge and sink and two small burners. But everything is sparkling and clean and new when you move in.
If you need something cheap, this is a great building.
