          Good location - a large number of grocery stores and cafes and restaurants nearby, subway station Nambu Terminal near - about 100 meters, bus station for airport limousine bus 1606 - 50 meters, city bus station Nambu Bus Terminal opposite across the road. Easy access to entertainment for children like Lotte World, coex and so on.Helpful staff, trying to help and solve problems.

          Standard rooms are very dark and in some of these windows look directly onto the wall. (The best for the family is twin room, but they are few and they are much more expensive). Russian visitors at first to populate the worst numbers, it is necessary to require that the room changed. All rooms have no closets, and very hard to put personal belongings. No safes. The hotel regularly used by Koreans as a love hotel. Overall, the hotel meets its cost, but they need to more clearly define to whom the hotel and to improve little things, the more it's not so expensive.

          Great, great, great location. Very near the airport bus stop, very near the Nambu Bus Terminal subway station and very near fastfood restaurants like KFC and Lotteria. There's even a Starbucks nearby! I love the room, it's very clean with a nice big TV and a PC with internet: very useful when planning for my trip and researching for good tours in Seoul. The room rate is also one of the most affordable that I can find in Seoul, especially since I was travelling solo.

          Seems like the California Hotel is love hotel or motel. If that bothers you, that could be a problem. For me, as long as the room and bathroom is clean and comfortable, I am ok with the love hotel concept. :)

        • Couple
          6.2

          Location just 20mt. From Airport Bus stop, 100mt. From Line 3 Subway, near to Restaurant, Cafè and 24 hours shops. Room with a computer and a big tv.

          No wardrobe.

        • Single
          7.8

          Location is good - 1 minute walk from Nambu subway. This is a love hotel, I have heard a working lady cry, however, you get degree of privacy in your room. Big tv, free internet. Staff is Ok.

          Absence of a tourists maps,

          The Hotel is very clean and very comfortable. It have many restaurants, bars and attractions near the hotel. The subway and the bus from the airport stops very close to hotel. Hotel very recommended :)

          The breakfast is very poor (only muffins, croissants and coffee)...

        • Couple
          8.8

          While staying in the Hotel, I wasn't bothered at all by the staff. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The Hotels are neat and Hotel service products are given for the few things that might have been left at home.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Location had easy access to main roads. Enjoyed the king size bed and jacuzzi. Tv was great.

          Room service limited and expensive. No microwave in room. Mirrors not positioned above sink and lighting was poor in bathroom area. No explanations in English on vod on tv. No local numbers to call for food delivery!

        • Single
          9.6

          Good, comfortable rooms at a decent price

          Mattress was quite hard, 'satellite tv' did not display BBC or CNN, only Korean stuff (among which 1 English channel), rooms are quite dark

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Large tv screen, pc with fast internet, free minibar items, bathroom amenities are stuffs that makes this hotel really value for money. It is also 100m to Bus station and Subway. Perfect!!

          English proficiency of hotel staff is poor, but they were helpful.

        • Couple
          8.8

          The room was very clean and the staff was extremely helpful.

          There was a pervasive (though not terribly strong) smell of old cigarette smoke, but this is likely to be a common feature in Korea because smoking is allowed in restaurants and hotel rooms.

        • Single
          7.4

          location and convinience is great. Clean and cozy.

          air conditional is leaking,no curtain for shower

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          Very clean and modern hotel. Even though the staff was not best in English, they were really helpful. Lots of eating places next to the hotel. 50 meters from bus to airport and 100 meters to subway.

        • Single
          6.2

          2 minutes walk from Nambu Bus Terminal subway station. 20 minutes by subway to downtown. Air-conditioning, large TV, computer with internet access was in the room.

          The room is very dark. Sometimes it was very noisy at night. It's definitely a love hotel.

        • Couple
          7.8

          Location was convenient; close to airport bus station and metro station. A lot of places to eat around. Clean room, and free internet.

          Most staff members barely speak English, but at least they try to help as much as possible.

        • Single
          7.0

          The hotel is opposite, Starbucks, Pizza Hut, Baskin Robins and Dunkin Doghnuts. Its is also located right on Numbus Bus station exit 6. The room is quite good with a full HD TV with over 400 channels of which I would say about 20 are in English, so its not so bad. The room is a resonable size and has a PC with internet, the quite cool thing is the one remote control that does the TV and satellite, AC, Central heated floor (if needed) and the lights.

          Now for more of the disappointing things I found, the room comes with a jacuzzi which for me didnt work or i could not find the on button. There is no safe deposit box in the room and no wardrobes, there is also no table to put your suitcase so it wil end up having to be kept on the floor. There is no restaurant and no room service.... apart from all that it is a resonable hotel to stay at.
