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... More

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.... More

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... More

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...

Kaya is cheap but nice, nothing too special but the location is the key. Subway, train, bus, and taxis are available. USO is right down the street, the Army base is close. The War Memorial is right around the corner. Once again, nothing too fancy here, just budget hotel!

The rooms were not very good. Brds were clean but nit comfortable and rooms not well cared for. I have lived in Korea before and know you can certainly find better rooms for the same price. Expected much more:(.

Kaya Hotel is a nice budjet Hotel in the center of Seoul. Everything was fine except the language and breakfast at the hotel. The managers couldn't speak proper English. I had paid extra for the "Continental Breakfast", but it was neither Continental nor breakfast. I got two pieces of breat, some small pieces of butter and Jam, a glass of... More
