The hotel is located near Namdaemun market and is only 5 minutes away from the City Hall train station. It's convenient, with lots of shops, restaurants and bars near by. The atmosphere at night is very different from the day time. Late night food stalls are right in the alley of the hotel and are great for experiencing local Korean... More

The hotel is located in a lane right across the Namedaemun market (exit 2). It's 5 mins walk to City Hall station and around 8 mins to Hyeon station (coz u need to go through the hectic market, try to avoid this station if you have heavy luggage). There are also quite a number of restaurants/cafe nearby but not so... More

Good enough for a budget, Location is quite ok, in the middle of seoul and in a small alley. But the room is really dark and the bathroom needs more light. The room is clean enough but the bed doesn't seem to be that clean. It itches when i sleep on it. Luckily, it was winter so i had long... More

Was not expecting much to begin with given the budget and hotel type. However we had hoped for at least a clean, relatively well maintained place with the basics intact. The hotel's general location was great, right in the middle of Seoul, but it was in a bit of a dodgy alley, decent enough in the day but gets rowdy... More

We stay at this hotel on our family vacation in April 2013. My eleven Years old twins an two years daughter really love this hotel. The hotel was located at the center of Seoul. The price was reasonable. We booked for 5 nights excluding breakfast. The hotel near to Namdaemun market and just 5 minutes walk to Dongdaemun. The nearest... More

The photos make this hotel look decent but in reality it was horrible. The rooms were both sterile and the layout was awful. The dining room if you can call it that was in the basement in a awful state. We will never go back again.

Good thing in staying in this hotel, price is affordable. Near the train station and the shopping area. Room was fine. The only inconvenient was no towel racks. We stayed for 4 nights and not a good thing for travellers. Room was quite spacious though. Bathroom was too dark. No mirrors in the bedroom area. Overall, it was okay. Like... More

As everyone will mention on their review, location is the best thing that comes out of this hotel, its near train station markets and other site seeing attraction. The customer service was grest, also noting that the GSA knew how to speak multiple language which helps a lot of travelers, but the rooms were not sound proof at all, heard... More
