It's a little run-down around the edges and they could do with a fresh lick of paint in some of the rooms and the bed linen and towels were on the old side... so why give the "Biz" a Very Good review? Well, it's location close to exit five of Jongro-3 is perfect. It's cheap. It has a basic breakfast... More

We stayed here for five nights in late June. All in all, we were highly satisfied. PROS: • The location is perfect. Lots of cultural sites of interest nearby, and markets and street food aplenty in the area. It’s also extremely easily reached by subway. Do NOT take a cab to come here from the airport – you’re wasting your... More

Good, and suprised so many Hong Kong people stayed there, almost 70% of all we met in the breakfast room, and not much Mainlanders. This point is very important because the normal soundproof of premises converted from domestic buildings are usually minimal, and the quality of people living around you may affect your sleep seriously. The service was definitely the... More

Ok, so the room is small, the window is tiny. I'm sure the air conditioning is so so in the summer, the decor is a bit hostel like, but right now, in November it is pretty near perfect. It is clean, the bed is comfortable. There is breakfast included, and frankly it is a damn good deal when you compare... More

A bit difficult to find but another reviewer gave a great explanation: "Jongro-3 station, exit 5. look right - see the Standard Charter sign at 1st-floor level? Walk to the right of that. The hotel will be on your right shortly, down the second alley/street." The room had a nice bed, huge tv, fast wireless. Aircon in the room was... More

As long as you set your expectations right, this would be a good place to stay. This is much closer to a hostel than a hotel from the way it operates to the room sizes to the décor to the cleanliness. The plus: - Location was fantastic, close to the Seoul Metro, close to Insadong, close to lots of food... More

After 50+ hotels I think this is the first place that is a little under-rated on TripAdvisor. It seems like a 4.0, but is currently 3.5. The rooms are just OK looking, but probably the most comfortable we had in 8 hotels across S. Korea & Japan though. They were the quietest and darkest (pitch black) rooms we used. Only... More

Just like most have said, this was very difficult to find; even the taxi driver had no idea. We arrived at night, so it was dark and hard to see....but we eventually found it. First impression---"where the heck am I and what have I done". I am used to more upper-scale accommodations and this definitely is NOT it, but once... More

Tricky to find in the bustling narrow back alleys , but this hotel is a safe bet for the budget tourist. Most hotels in this area at a similar price are 'love' hotels, and slightly seedy. This hotel is filled with travellers, and has quirky cute painted halls and stairwells. The rooms are basic and small but have all your... More
