Niklas from Sweden
Solo traveler
Single Bed Room
Stayed 1 night in May 2017
Low budget hotel in good location”
I had to find a quick stay for a single night, and this was essentially the cheapest I could find on short notice. The location is VERY good, being right around the corner of a central subway station and within walking distance of Myeongdong, one of the biggest shopping districts in Seoul. The room was clean enough, but the bed felt like it was kept together by duct-tape or something. I was also shocked to see there was a small, open window to the hotel hallway from the bathroom (though high up, I admit) that I didn't notice for quite some time, which was quite disconcerting. The building itself lacked an elevator, and I stayed on the 3rd floor - also managed to bang my head on a doorpost in the hallway. Everything from corridors to room was very cramped. Wi-fi, air-con, and TV all worked fine, with a small fridge by the bed. Staff seemed to be mostly foreign exchange students or something. This made it very easy to communicate with them, but they were hardly radiating ambition. The selling points of this place are price and location; if you value comfort equally or higher than those, it's probably not the place for you.

Great location!”
Great location. Many shops and restaurants near by. Stuffs are very kind and friendly. Noisy if you open the window but not a problem. Unfortunately there's someone's hair on my blanket... please check carefully.

Simple place but good location”
The place is very simple and provides only the necessary things. It was perfect for travelers who only need a place to stay for the night. The best part was the location. It was within walking distance to many eateries and public transportation stops. I would definitely recommend for simple travelers and backpackers.

Tan from Malaysia
Double Bed Room
Stayed 7 nights in November 2016
Reserved a double bed room. Room is very small but its acceptable since its just for sleeping. Kind staff. Floor & water heater works well. Hairdryer provided. TV doesn't work. The only big issue was the bed. It is slightly slanted! You could find yourself accidentally roll out from the bed. Lol...This affect the quality of our sleep. I don't know whether other rooms have this problem too. But ours, YES! Hope the hotel can solve the problem. By the way, it is situated at a good location. It is located just at the side of Hoehyeon Station Exit 1. Namdaemun market is just 5min walking. Myeongdong street 10min walking.

Amanda from Singapore
Double Bed Room
Stayed 3 nights in July 2016
Location was good, easy to find. But the hotel greeted us with a pungent odor. The toilet had a foul smell too. The room is really small, no space to unpack huge luggages. More for backpackers. I hope Kingkong Hotel take action to keep the hotel smelling fresh and not give hard time to people who stay there.

Value for money”
First, they immediately e-mailed me few minutes after booking about how to get to the place and even answered my query with the same speed. The two single and one king size bed was really just what our family needs. The place is few minutes away from everything we need in Seoul. We also appreciate the fact that all the hotel staff are English speakers (actually they are mostly foreigners) and are very helpful. I truly would come next time to this hotel. The best for the price.
