Decor unbelievable.lime green and blue walls with a false ceiling. Plastic sheet under bottom sheet which made sleeping awful. Breakfast supplied but no milk for the tea or coffee. Catered for Chines tourists. Bus loads arriving late at night and loud. Would not recommend.

10 minutes walk from the subway station- Dapsimni. Exit 4 is the nearest but if you are coming with bulky suitcases, pick exit 7 with the elevator and cross the road. We stayed there for 5 nights in 2 'Twin 1 Double Bed-1 Single Bed' rooms on the 2nd floor. The rooms are clean, with huge TV, refrigerator, air-con, hairdryer,electrical... More

We had five rooms on the second floor. The air conditioner of one room was broken on the first day. It started dropping water on the bed. We told the situation to the front desk. However, he told us that due to the holiday there was no empty room in the hotel and he couldn't do anything. After complaining for... More

When I booked our trip to Korea, I wanted a hotel in the middle of the city. Well this hotel is in the antique shop district and is very quiet. Short walk to the subway and very accessible. The hotel is small, staff very helpful with tours and directions. Speak good enough English too. But the room has a certain... More

The hotel is nice and clean, but room are very small, specially they say it is a double room but the rooms are too small for two people... Besides the size of the rooms the rest of the things are ok, they have a huge tv and a PC and a very cool surround system. The location is ok... 10... More

We were put up here by our Korean Hosts (a Charity Organisation, with a budget limit). The Hotel seems to currently be under renovation. I am unsure if at first we had an old room 506, or a very poorly renovated room. It seemed like new paint, but the colour was a bright deep purple and a bright deep blue,... More

Came here for a self getaway holiday, and receptionist was more than helpful to guide us on where we needed to go. Room came with complimentary wifi, cold tin coffee and a packet of grape juice. These were replenished daily. Breakfast was the same for the two weeks me and my wife was there. Scrambled eggs, porridge, salads, sausages, kimchi,... More

Hi, I am from Iran. Although it is not located in the central and historical part of the city, but it is near the subway station. The stuff were very kind and unlike the other hotels, the rooms were big enough to be very comfortable and also our room included KARAOKE! :D

Obviously a motel with a small room, huge lcd tv and bidet. When we first checked in, the room smelled heavily of cigarrette smoke. The space was so tiny, it was just nice for our luggage and our walking space. However, Mare showed some class. Subway is just 10mins walking distance from motel. Will probably come back. Not for families... More
