The hotel is hidden in a backstreet. I'd not call it a hotel but an BnB since there are only few rooms in the hotel and the receptionists were the cooks themselves, and there was ONE person waiting for me since I checked in late and disappeared right after I entered my room - not sure if there was anyone...

I stayed there for one night, and I wish I could have stayed longer. I tried several hotels in Seoul, and I have to say the win is the best value for money that I've seen so far. Room was nicely decorated (no IKEA furniture), very quiet (no noise from the street). I read about people complaining about breakfast, but... More

Excellent location and free wifi is great. In room facilities would be nice such as coffee or tea maker and a small fridge. I stayed in a studi very very compact room or rather like a capsule room, but it was very comfortable. No street noise can be heard. If you return to the hotel past a certain time on... More

Great location for exploring the City and close to hundreds of yummy little korean restaurants. The carpet in the room was filthy and the centrally located computer did not work. The roof top restaurant is not there. Unfortunately the non smoking policy is not enforced and we were woken by guests smoking in the corridor. Very small bathroom with a... More

For us The Win whas overall an excellent clean and cozy base to explore the city for a long weekend. Don't expect an hotel this is more like a homestay. The street is very quite but walking distance from planty of restaurants and bars and just next to line 2 Hapjeong Metro Station, so very convenient during the day by... More

Its a pretty little B&B decorated like a vintage doll house. Room are tiny but very clean. Good location near hapjeong station exit no 2. Breakfast egg and sausage was terrible, but they provided freshly squeezed apple juice with yummy home made jam and yoghurt. Try Mapo dumpling around the corner. Its a small chain that serves very good food... More

We stayed at this "boutique" hotel for 2 nights on the basis of reviews we read on booking.com. It is a cute hotel with a "boutique" feel and helpful staff who speak English very well. But here are a few things to keep in mind if you are thinking about booking this hotel: 1. The area of the hotel is... More

We stayed here for a few nights because this place is close to a friend's house, and we liked the small boutique hotel idea. Strictly speaking, it is not a hotel, but a guest house. Staff are around only at certain daytime hours. For very early or late arrivals, this could be a problem. On the other hand, at least... More

This little B&B is located just 3 min from the metro station yet since it's on the backstreet it's pretty quite. The whole building and also our room is accessible using the electronic security key so if you are a female travelling alone it is very safe. We went to districts around Hongik university and Ewha women's university while we... More

I was in Seoul for almost 3 weeks in May-Jun'11, and i'm really lucky to discover this hidden gem, while it's a small inn (they only have 6 rooms in total), it's an amazing and highly comfortable place. As i'm a female travelling alone...safety, convenience and accessibility of the hotel and surroundings were the key selection criteria, this place is... More
