    Very good location. Near metro station which we used a lot during our trip. Namdaemun Market and Myeong-Dong shopping areas are within walkable distance. Convenience shops just besides the hotel. Helpful staff allowed us to store our luggage before check-in time because we had early arrival and need to start visiting places. He helped carry our luggage to the rooms. Decent bedrooms & bathrooms. Body wash, shampoo, soap, toothbrush+paste provided. Disadvantage: Not suitable for elderly with knee problem due to steep staircase.

    Humble hostel 💕”

    I was here for 6 days with my family. The main consideration why we booked this hotel was because it is right outside the exit 1 of Hoehyeon Station. It is so convenient, convenience stores and restaurants are right around the corner. The guy at they reception is very helpful, he carried our 2 heavy luggages going up to 2nd floor. Also, I messaged the hotel right after we book that we will be arriving late and they waited for our arrival. All in all this is an affordable and reasonable hotel to stay during your visit in Seoul. My only comment is that, the bathroom has an unpleasant smell and the bed has some hairs. Anyway, the positive on the other hand outscored the negative. I would recommend this hotel 😊

    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.

    Above average”

    The check-in time stated in the app was 12 pm but upon arriving, we were left with a note stating that the check-in time would be 2 pm. The late check-in time had delayed our initial plans of sightseeing on the first day, not to mention that there was no space to actually wait, since the front part of the hotel was filled with luggage and other waiting customers. I really hope that they would improve on this since the lack of transparency would cause a delay in other people's plan. On the other hand, the location was strategic since it was located very near to the subway's exit. The staff were also friendly and helpful.

    Basic hostel with private rooms”

    Although listed as a hotel its more of a hostel with private rooms. Rooms are very small - barely enough room to stand on one side of the bed. Quite expensive for what it is. Location was great though - right next to Hoehyeon station, a 5-10 min walk to Myeongdong and a 5-10 min walk to Namdaemun market. Staff were accommodating and helpful - on my first day I arrived early and was allowed to use a spare room until mine was ready. When I asked staff where to get some good local food, the two girls were about to finish their shift and they took me with them to get lunch.

    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.

    very near to the subway exit no1

    I enjoyed my stay there. What I like most is the location to the subway exit which was just 10 meter away. If you're using a bus from incheon airport to this hotel than its just 5 min walk from the drop off point. The hotel is quite new so it's clean and tidy. The bed is slightly hard . A convenient store is 2 shop away.A few restaurant was just a few steps away.Very near to namdaemun market, just across the road. Love to come back to stay here again.

    English is Hotel but Korea word is Motel”

    English is Hotel but Korea word is Motel. My opinion, more suitable to put into guest house/motel category. What we saw on the photo is very clean but actually those pillow is a bit yellow in color. For guesthouse category, yeah, I can accept it. Good location, nearby Myeong Dong, Namdaemun and subway. If you plan to put your luggage at the counter and go out to walk around before the check in time, there are no space for you to do so safely. Luggage can put at the public area and accessible by anyone walk into the Hotel. And the moment we walk in, no receptionist at the counter/around. No lock at the bathroom. First time staying in Korea hotel, not sure whether is their style. :D

    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.

    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.

    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.
