          Well worth the money!”

          The room was much bigger than I anticipated. Room Service was quick and the food was decent.

          I felt the Karak Tourist Hotel was very good for the money. All though I had some issues my first night there. The parking lot is very small and the person that parked next to me put their bag on my car and drug it off the front of it. It left several deep scratches on the hood of my 2011 Ford Mustang GT. The morning of my first night, I had some very inconsiderate neighbors and at 615am I was awoken due to their loud tone and the walls not being very thick. The second night, the hotel took care of my car and allowed me to park in a safer place away from the other vehicles and I didn’t have rude neighbors. I would stay there again except I wouldn’t drive my car there. I feel the Karak hotel is well worth the money and is better than the Seoul Olympic Parktel I stayed in a few weeks ago. If you want to get out and enjoy some of Korea’s fun and activities, I would recommend staying at this hotel.

          A few minutes walk from the subway, near multiple convenience stores

          Karak Tourist Hotel was worth the low price. While it was far away from the heart of Seoul, it was easily accessible by subway. The staff is friendly, the maid service does a great job at cleaning up the room for multiple nights stay and everything is very clean. If you have time to spare and are not on a strict schedule then stay at Karak Tourist Hotel.

          Location, Value, Quality

          At first I thought we had made a mistake. We checked in and the doorknob fell off the door. Not a great first impression having been in Seoul for only a few hours for the first time ever. However, we showed the staff and they fixed the problem quickly. They didn't speak a lot of English, but they came to the room and I showed them and they understood and responded. The room was really quite nice. It isn't an American 5-star hotel, but its clean, safe with a great location and for the price its really a fine choice. I would definitely stay there again. The location isn't in the heart of the tourist area, but this hotel is just a block or 2 away from a great subway station with connection service to 2 different lines and the ability to get you anywhere in the city. If you are looking to be near Jamsil or Apujang this hotel is a perfect choice.

          close to Lotte Mart; close to subway station; good service.

          Karak Hotel is very close to a subway station, banks, and Lotte Mart. It is only a few subway station away from Lotte World. We booked a non-smoking room but we stayed in a smoking room which smells smoke obviously. We didn't ask for a change because we spent most of the time out of the hotel. Overall, we had a good time in this hotel.

          We managed to check in the hotel around 11ish in the evening, which is quite late. Luckily our room is still reserved and we get to have a nice stay. An evening scroll around the neighbourhood shows us that we can easily get groceries around. There's even a Lotte Mart walking distance from Karak. Love it.

          Price

          Aside from getting a bit turned around to find the place, I had a great one night stay. Kayak is a no fuss, no frill type of hotel, great for an expensive stay in the city. I was in town for Cirque de Soleil which was taking place about 10 minutes away. The staff spoke some English, was very helpful with giving directions, and check in was a breeze! Clean room, a bit worn/old, bathtub (a big plus in Korea!), and a great TV with English cable channels. I would definitely stay again.

          Price, close to station, close to restaurants

          Nice little hotel, very close to the station. Has lots of food joints around, like a pizza/sushi place next door, mini stop and family mart just down the street... Pho mein, lots of korean foods and coffee shops... Walk across a big intersection to lotte mart which has nearly everything you need.. a few stops away from Jamsil, a huge station with lots to shop from and lotte world.. even if you dont go in, a great place to take pictures... All in all, the hotel was nice and clean, much better than expected 3 star hotel.. Some staff can't speak english but they'll pass the phone to some who can understand a bit better.. the faces of some of the staff are quite cold and stiff though, but I'd still go back for a budget and clean place to stay

          Staff could speak decent level of English, near the subway station (Garak Market), facilities are decent, room size is decent to put luggages and showering facilities are decent. The aircon and heating system appears to be centrally controlled, so mistakes may be made sometimes, which either turns a room too hot or cold. But the staffs will hand you a remote control to manually turn on the heater or aircon. The staffs are very particular on the temperatures in the rooms though. If you are setting the temperatures to something that they don't like, they will call you and ask you to change the temperature, or they will reset it from their desks remotely.
