great location,
useful staff but breakfast was limited

Uncomfortable Room
We were ok with the location as subway is 1 min walk way and plenty of shop. However, the hotel is not our choice as the corridor is dark and the light of the room is not bright enough.

A good deal for a great location
Nice staff, full equipped room, excellent location. But I was disapointed by the breakfast which offers neither a big choice nor quality products.

OK, if you can find it
CATS is an OK midrange hotel, a bit knky, but alright. The real problem is getting there, I had to ask directions from 2 other places within 200 metres before I could find it, it probably helps to have a GPS.

Travel with Family of 6
Good: - Cheap compared to most of the hotels in the neighborhood. - Wifi speed is ok. - A lot of restaurants nearby. - Location is okay, near to subway exit but need to walk quite a lot to reach the platform of the train we need. Cautious if you are traveling with elders. - Provide simple & on-the-go breakfast. Bad: - Been told by my parents that their room's (403) toilet has unpleasant smell. - Floor drainage of my room (703) isn't good, water could accumulates and not flow into the floor drain.

Bed was very smelly
This hotel seems to have a lot of good reviews, including cleanliness. However I disagree with that.. Good things first. The location is really great, a few stops to most of the popular places. There are also a lot of eateries within a few minutes of walk. However, when it was late at night, there were some drunk people and the street was full of litters. Back to the hotel, the room was not clean and there was a weird smell in the room, though I could not figure out what that was. There was a especially strong smell from the bed and I could not fall sleep while smelling it. The room was also very very dark even with the lights on, and all the lights were yellow. (May be this is the trend for love hotel?) The window was very small. One note about non-smoking room. The room is actually listed as non-smoking on Agoda, but it is not the case on other website. While I specially requested for a non-smoking room, I still got a smoking room when I reached there. But luckily, there was no smoke smell in the room.

A+ for location

location, hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, plus ice cream for free, that was very nice
We booked a double deluxe room with a comment that our trip would be our pre-wedding trip. So we expect a nice arranged room. After we checked in, we realized that this was a real design hotel. Many facilities were well design, sometime without thinking about function, for an example make-up mirror without lights. We got a room on the 6th floor, it calls Business floor. It is a non smoking hotel, but we still found some smoked cigarett in the corridor. The room it self was ok for two, but not as nice as we expected for our pre-wedding trip. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast offer was not that much. There were just instand noodles, toast, porigde, müsli and horible coffee from a machine. BUT the location of the hotel was great. You can get to every points by foot or metro. And if you are hungry at the night time you can grap something accross the street or may ask a staff for a delivery call.

Cats Hotel review from German traveller

Perfect location in the heart of Jongno district, close to Metro station, quiet place
The Hotel is a good value for Money and is placed in a superb area of Seoul where one can find many Restaurants close by. Underground Train Station is also very proximate. Hotel stuff is friendly and speeks English. Breakfast is buffet style and a bit limited selection but has western food.
