It was the most terrible hotel we've ever stayed in Korea. I don't even understand how they earned the honor from the city. :-S While I was staying there, maids opened our door 4 times without any knocks or anything. They said their room-keeping system was broken and explained that was why they made mistakes of opening the door when... More

I had researched hotels on trip advisor for my trip to Seoul. This hotel had came up but the reviews were not real good so we had planned not to even check on it. We got in late and it was in the area and had rooms available so we took the chance. The rooms were really clean and service... More

We used the hotel as it was good price and excellent location for both Seoul train station and Yongsan train station (both one stop away). Rooms quite good and clean but the under floor was on full blast This is common thing in Korea and not good for fresh air freaks like me. And get used to rock hard mattresses!

We read some pretty good reviews and were recommended this hotel before we booked. Upon entering the hotel, the receptionist was rude. Once in our room, we immediately saw lots of hair in each of the beds. There were also stains on the sheets. In the bathroom there was hair on the wall, floor and in the bathtub. There was... More

I have stayed here a number of times because of the location and price. The clientele are usually multinational so the hotel front desk is accustomed to dealing with foreigners. Their English was impressive. The rooms have always been satisfactory. Nothing fancy but clean enough for a comfortable stay. The rooms, I must add, look very different from what is... More

Spent two nights here in a 3-bed room. Pros: - Clean room - Good air-conditioner - Water filter in the room with hot and cold options (complimentary tea and coffee packets, although with Paris Baguette right around the corner, I'd recommend going there instead). - Bathroom was clean as well. - Checked out early, but we were able to leave...

This hotel is not suitable for people. When we arrived we were met by a bit rude lady which treated me as a second class person (I should mention that the second receptionist was very friendly and helpful). We received a triple room on the first flow. There was a window in the room but it exited directly to a... More

We had one night here and we picked it because it was two minutes away from the USO at 7am and a trip to the DMZ. There are much better hotels in the area (the Elle (150 000w per night) and the Kaya (58 000w per night) right next door) and this one wasn't worth 60 000w per night. It's... More
