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

We stayed here 10 days, average price for our twin room (1 single bed and 1 double bed) was about £ 40/night. Located near 2 subway stations, but also on the route of the bus from the airport (6001) with a stop almost in front of the hotel. As mentioned in other reviews, loads of restaurants around the hotel. It... More

We stayed here two times for two night traveling to and from Down Under in February (3rd floor) and March (2nd floor). Both times it was very hot in the room because of a not adjustable floor heater. We slept in our underwear, with the window wide open (minus 10 degrees outside!) and the airco on! The sheets were clean... More

Location: Great! 5 mins walk away from the subway station and so much restaurants nearby that are 24/7, quiet, and I actually feel safe! I love where it is located because if you look at the map of Seoul, Namyeong Station is just RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE of the map! So convenient to go everywhere! Cleanliness: Superb!
