    Liked nothing except the location. If you travel by metro, take off at Namyoung station, turn right exiting from station, walk till the lights, take right, after 30-40 meters, maybe little bit more, you should see Kaya Hotel sign.

    Very very dated hotel. Building including the rooms are very old. I arrived early in the morning after a long flight expecting an early check- in (even with a charge).I Handed in my passport and the guy at the reception did not even look at it and said the check in is at 15:00 hrs. (Be warned Booked.net site says 14:00 hrs) Have serious questions about the cleanliness. First day I had few long hair in the bed sheets. I did not care too much. On the second day they changed them with so called clean ones but they had hair in as well. Basic amenities were there but not for single use such as a big tube of toothpaste, a big hair gel, a big hand cream, etc.Making me feel at home! There was even a bug repellent spray in the room. Even slippers were not single use ones. Staff cannot speak English well. Combining my two seperate bookings, one after another, into one was a real challenge for me. There is escape rope in the room so that in a fire you can escape from the windows (I think Korean Code requires that) However room had two seperate windows one behind another and the outer one could not be opened except for a very small ventilation window. Very expensive hotel for what he promises and provides. Will never stay there again.

    Great location close to Seoul Station and quick walking distance to three subway stations on three different lines. Free wireless in rooms and also computer with internet to use free of use. Affordable and convenient place to stay in Seoul city.

    Excellent location, 3mins walk from the station, airport bus is 5 mins away, 24 hrs cafe restaurants are nearby, friendly staff, english are good enough to communicate, simple but clean room, had air con, air purifier, will definately book with them again.

    Furnitures are a bit old fashioned, no kettle in our room so cant make myself a cup of hot tea and need to bring your own toothbrush which is a minor thing.

    well, i did not like anythng about this hotel,may be the only thing that it was easy to reach to metro stations and the Airport bus station in return.

    1-The room they give me first was like a jail, with half a small window, although it was Wednsday and most of the rooms were empty, after i told them they change me to a little better one. All the staffs were reluctants to talk although i saw a lot of hospitalities in Seoul's people. I did not even touch any supplies in the room and Bath and even used papper towel to dry myself, caz i did not like thier supplies and did not trust for cleanliness of them.The " coffee" shop was like a ghost room, i could go out even for a cup of coffee.

    Only two minutes walk from USO office, from which the tour to the Demilitarised Zone starts at 7.00 am. This was the sole reason for choosing hotel and it was fine for the purpose. Also a reasonable number of decent coffee shops and restaurants and close to Namyeong station. Staff were helpful, with some English.

    It really needs a refurbish. Bathroom was tired and towels poor. No cupboards at all and, en route for a two week holiday, we were falling over our stuff!

    7-Eleven is just near to the hotel. Many restaurants are around.

    Smoking smell in my room, The cleanness is just acceptable. The young male staff is rather impatient with me. It is a bit far from the Seoul Station. Nam Yeong stations is suggested.

    Easy to get to. Can take the airport express train (either the express or commuter train to Seoul Station), then transfer to Line 4 and get off at Sookmyung Women's Uni station (take exit 7, then continue walking for about 5 mins, the hotel is on the right), or Line 1 and get off at Namyeong (there's only 1 exit, get out and turn R, then turn R at the lights, the hotel is on the R and only about 50 meters away!). A few western restaurants around and a lot of korean restaurants.

    The internet was terrible! Pretty much impossible to connect to (especially at night). There was no shower curtain in the bathroom, so each shower lead to a completely soaking bathroom. The room was very very outdated. And, I booked a room with 2 beds, but they would only give me one bed.

    The floor is heated which is pretty nice as you do not have to worry about cold floors when getting out of bed in the morning.

    The beds are a little hard. And for some inexplicable reason, there isn't a shower curtain which means that you have to be extra careful to not flood the bathroom when showering.
