I stayed at this guesthouse for 8 weeks and had an excellent experience. Here are some of the reasons why I think so: - The location is excellent. It is easy to find and it's very conveniently located, near both Hongdae and Hapjeong stations. What I liked best was that it's not on a "main" road, but a side alley,... More

I paid way too much to stay in a moldy, concrete asylum of a room. This is unfortunate because the service and amenities were pretty good, but they hardly made up for the status of the place. Well most of the service, the guy running the desk saw me walk in, told me I was in the wrong location and... More

Hello CD, thanks for your review but also really sorry to poor services and conditions. All the Blu staff feel terrible to your dissatisfaction. Sincerely apologize again for making awful experiences during your travel in Korea. That staff was a temporary employee with extremely short training terms, so it made bad service to you. We should have trained more.. Also... More

Its service and people are nice. They quickly responded my mail and willingly answered my questions. But the first time I saw the room I feel a little disappointed. The wall need a repaint, the cleanness of the sheet and towel also need to be reproved. However, after we asked them to switch those things, they made it right very... More

BLU made my first trip to Seoul so easy! Jay Lee and crew keep the place clean and the desk staff is amazing and friendly. The cafe downstairs is top notch. I can't wait to stay at BLU again. It is in a very easy area for a first timer to navigate.
