We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Cats. Was a little difficult to find originally from the train station but that could be easily solved by having a good map. Hotel was close to plenty of great things to do and eat. Staff where friendly and the breakfast was satisfying. The rooms where warm which was brilliant as it was... More

Stayed for a couple of nights in Cats design hotel. It's situated in a convenient location with good communications when you visit Seoul as a tourist. This is a clean and nice hotel, but it is also a design hotel. That means that some practicalities like lightning, duvets and normal door to the bathroom is missing. The bed was rock... More

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!

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.

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

Staying in Gwanghwamun / Jongno

Neighborhood Profile
Gwanghwamun / Jongno
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul, Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s most important historic sites and neighborhoods. Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighborhoods, the area is rich with history and culture in its palaces, shrines, and temples. Stand in the center of Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt. Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue behind you, and modern office buildings encircling you—it’s one of the best ways to experience both past and present Seoul in one spot. The main street of Jongno is mostly dotted with restaurants and cafes, but explore deeper within its intricate alleys to pass decades-old restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and pojangmachas (tents that open at night for quick bites and drinks) and life seems to run just as it did a decade or two ago. Don’t forget to stop at Gwangjang Market, Korea’s oldest traditional market, where it’s just as fun to explore as it is to eat the affordable market dishes that locals have been enjoying since the market first opened in 1905. For a break from urban life, walk along the restored Cheonggyecheon Stream that runs parallel to Jongno for a moment of natural refuge in metropolitan Seoul.
