When I booked a room at this hotel (actually motel) from travelocity.com, the regular price of the room was higher than $220 for a 3-person junior suite room and it was on sale for $120 a night. I paid more than $270 including tax for two nights. As soon as I arrived there, I found the banner which said "sale... More

Almost killed about 5 mosquitoes per night while still see there are around 2 to 3 fly around the room, i believe those hotels in thailand could manage better. The room light are way too dark. Whenever we get into the washroom, we smell very strong cigarette smell which we have no idea it comes from. Staff are nice and... More

Stayed for 8days7nights in Cats Hotel and my stay is quite a disappointment. Luckily I changed to another accommodation after. 1st of all, when I first checked in to the deluxe room on the 5th floor, the room was very dark with bare minimal lights (4 small yellow spotlights in the attire room). The room was very cramped and small... More

I found this hotel at a great rate and decided to book for 4 nights. Initially, my taxi driver said he could not drive to the front because no cars are allowed in the small alleyway. We walked up a small open-air parking garage to find the main door entrance. We were greeted my two friendly men and check-in was... More

I don't care if this neighborhood is full of love motels, gay bars or something else, all I know is that we have spent a wonderful five-day vacation while staying there! Its location is excellent with three subway lines meeting around , and the staff is friendly. When checking in , you don't need to fill in any blankets or... More

The area itself is filled with love motels and therefore the area might seem a little seedy but in the morning, everything is as clean and well. Close to the subway and lots of decent eateries around. Staff was a little impersonal but efficient. No smiles, Fast check in. Rooms were really small and only one large suit case can... More

The location is excellent but as others have noted in a seedy side alley which can get noisy. I stayed for four nights and although my 'deluxe' room was really quiet, the bed comfortable and the sheets changed every other day, the room was not cleaned and the bathroom was extremely grubby which detracted from its other comforts. Take your... More

The hotel comes across as rather seedy. It's in a good location but it's surrounded by a few love motels which for unassimilated and unbeknownst foreigners, may come as quite a shock. It's seriously hard to find and I was familiar with the area. They spoke no other language but Korean at the reception desk which will make it challenging... More

My wife and I spent two nights in the hotel in Sept 2012. I can only assume the negative reviews were from awhile back. We booked sight unseen for the price and the difficulty of finding a conveniently located place. The price was half the other hotels and located near Insadong, the river walk (Chongkyechun), restaurants, and numerous street vendors.... More

Nice room, the AC worked well, and the location was why I chose it in the first place. We were able to walk to plenty of places: temples, places, parks, the Insadong road of shops and restaurants as so many others have noted. Free ice cream in the freezer by the elevator, yummy. Free parking for our car which sat... More
