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

When we got to this hotel i was more than a little dubious as it was under going renavations and looked poor from the outside. These worries then proved to be totally unfounded. The room was lovely with a big 50" t.v with free movies, Whirlpool bath, free pc and internet, power shower, underfloor heating (a little too warm sometimes,... More

I stayed at the hotel for 4days and I got satisfied with the price, location, and the service. The hotel looks like a motel and i saw some Korean couple who just droped by there, I guess. But the receptionists are so kind and they helped me a lot. One thing I didn't like was the shower. The water pressure... More
