I stayed here for four nights in April 2017 and it was perfect for what I wanted from a hotel in Seoul. Very close to three lines on the metro, the war museum and the national museum with fast wifi, it is a great cheap option for a solo traveller. I found my room to be quite big given that...

This hotel is pretty much the definition of "no frills" but, credit where it's due, the rooms and bathrooms are clean, the TV is a decent size, and the wifi is free. By western standards the rooms might seem small, but they are comfy enough for two people to get a good night's sleep. The location is also excellent, near...

Hotel was good and room was spacious! Bed can be considered hard, but after a day of walking, subway stair climbing and sightseeing the bed was comfortable to sleep in. Very close to subway station and is only 3 stops away from Myeongdong, 2 stops away from Namdaemun and 1 stop away from Seoul Station! Many places to eat around...

Just stayed at the Kaya Tourist Hotel and have to say the location is great to Itaewon, Namsan Tower and Seoul station. Lots of places to eat nearby and easy to hail a taxi down to get anywhere you want to go. Check in was smooth and price of the room was cheap for the local area we were in....

The hotel was very clean and warm. The beds and pillows were a little bit hard. It was in a good location near several subway stations. The manager of the hotel spoke passable English. It was located near many restaurants.

Definitely the location is great if you are going on the early morning DMZ/JSA Tour with the USO and Koridoor only feet away from the hotel. You can crawl out of bed and get there in two minutes. Great for the Korean War Memorial Museum as well. Subway stop is close, tons of restaurants and coffee shops....including American businesses. The...

It's the kind of place that would get good reviews on here for value, and also people shocked by how shabby it is. To me given the good location (close to two different subway lines, near lots of restaurants) it was nice enough but definitely an older hotel, with a dated look, a bit musty, small rooms, limited services (but...
