Pros: the hotel is very near the subway station, is 15 min walk to gangnam station/food street/shopping, has a KAL airport limousine bus service at 16000 won per person to incheon airport- takes 70-80min Cons: The hallway outside the hotel is dark and creepy- the lamp is burnt out/broken and noone bothered to change it. Also, this hotel is badly...

We were looking for a hotel close to Nampo Bus station and this hotel is literally three minutes walk from the station, great if you have an early bus out. It is tucked away behind the street front shop, just walk left from the bus station and cross the road at the first set of lights. The room was reasonable,...

I came here for the second time and they renovated the bathrooms. The hotel is definitely a good price. Not only is it in a great safe location but it also has a lot of good restaurants around the neighborhood!!! It can get a little noisy though. The staff also speaks english.

We stayed at California hotel in Seoul during December 2012 and January 2013 for just under 3 weeks. Looking at some other website, many perceived the hotel as a "Love Hotel", but we found it to be perfect for our stay. The room we received was comfortable enough space for two people, only problem was there was no closet for...

Where would one get an accommodation based on strictly criteria settings like cheap, good location with easy access to internet, transportation via LRT or MRT, buses and many taxis, with three or four stop with directly Airport route? Hotel California.

“Best food locations on either streets, all directions. Local dishes, drinking beer and food, pubs, karaoke and seafood restaurants too. Some local dining places employed Chinese workers that communications was not a problem with languages.”
