The place is so nice. The surround location is pack of bulkoki in the evening till late at night. There are 2 subways, mostly use Jongno3(sam)-ga station which is nearest. Room space is enough for staying. Bathroom is clean. Bed can make you sleep deep. Common area is so nice. Reception is very nice and good in English..
