“Cheap and good deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

We spent 2 hours searching for this hotel but it was worth it. It was located in one of the alley near to Jongo 3 ga Subway station exit 4. i stayed on the 6th floor which the theme is Business floor. There are computer in the room as well as bath tub. The room was quite spacious too. According to the staff, everything in the room was free including the drinks and tea bag. There are free wifi services and ice cream located at the lobby. The room rate was affordable and im very satisfied with the services. Beside that the staff do not speak english, i do not counter any bad impression with the hotel.

I stayed at Cats Hotel during 3 - 6 Apr 2011 with my friend. I was aware that the hotel could be hard to find for the first time so I tried to collect all useful information from all given reviews and that helped guide us to the hotel. However, as I said that it could be quite hard to fine for the first time so I'd better share the clearer instruction to reach the hotel : )
If you take a bus from ICN (sorry I don't remember the bus number but you can check it with the Information counter at the airport, tell them you're heading to Jungnosum(3)ga (sum = 3) Get off at Jungnosumga bus stop. Cross the road and walk backwards. Look for Mcdonald sign (but it's pretty small). If you see Mcdonald, you are on the right way, walk a bit further till you see Skinfood shop then turn right. Walk down the road, you'll pass 7-11 minimart and some restaurants. Walk until you see the exit from the subway. There will be a small junction in front of you. If you look up, you should see the hotel sign, it's pretty big. Cross the road to the right, there is a restaurant. Turn right to a small alley, walk for about a minute. Look to your left you will find the hotel entrance (but it's very small).

I booked a twin bed but got a double bed which was still fine for us. The room was quite nice, I liked the PC with the internet in the room : ) Also Big screen TV, electric kettle, coffee, tea (but no sugar) and free minibar, it wasn't a lot, just some juice and water but I thought it was nice enough for us.

The hotel staff was ok but they could barely speak English and thus may not be very helpful if you need to ask for information.

The hotel location was very convenience, lots of restaurants and shopping places and most importantly, very near Jungnosumga subway station which is the interchange station to other subway lines.

Room Tip: may not be suitable for a business trip

I stayed at CATS Hotel since they had a very good deal online and I knew the location was very good (Insadong). I was a bit disappointed with the room which looked rather different than on the pictures and was not super clean. Also, the hotel is not quite suited for business stay; there was no iron nor wifi in the room.
