I booked this hotel thru Expedia for my Sept 2014 trip. After booking, it came up that it was no refund. Well I was stuck but hoped for the best. When I got there, the manger showed me this room and he even remarked "somebody screwed you hard". He was right. The room was maybe 6x8 at best. I'm feet... More

No, you won't find luxury or amenities here, but you will get a clean & functional room (albeit tiny), at a great location. It is within walking distance to many Seoul's attractions including the famed Namdaemun market, Myeong-Dong shopping district and City Hall area. If you don't mind a bit of a pleasant walk, GyeongBok Palace is also not too... More

Travelled to Seoul as a couple and stayed at this place for 6 nights. Let's start with the negative stuff first - the room is small (especially if you take the queen sized bedroom), with no real space for luggage (agreeing with the previous comments & reviews of this place) and last but not least, the sound insulation of this...

Navigating narrow side streets whose names we couldn't read would have daunted us, but not knowing this beforehand sure made our first-time visit to Seoul that much more exciting! We thought we were booking Irene Hotel (a whole building) located near a corner of a major road in Jung-Gu, not its sister hotel which occupied only two floors of another... More

The location must be the best asset of this hotel, but in our thoughts it didn't dissapoint in any other area either. Our room certainly wasn't too small and we could easily spread both our luggages on the floor and still move around. Sure it was smaller than some hotels we've been to but unlike other rewievers, we didn't feel... More

Near city hall station. Can access by hotel limousine number 6015, but please do some prior research. Reasonably sized room. No frills budget stay. Hotel staff speaks a bit of english. Sleep quality acceptable. Just that one of the nights, heard people outside quarelling and knocking on the thin walls.

United lost my luggage somewhere between SF and Seoul (or TSA screwed it up) and I stayed here hoping the luggage would show up before I took the KTX to Daegu. It was $48 for the night. Small room, no real room for luggage, but so what, you get what you pay for. I slept fine. It is only a... More

As many reviews have mentioned, the location is great. Walking distance to myeondong, takes about 15mins. And, it is about 5mins walking distance to metro station. The room size is really small, and the cigarette smell in the room is bad. Am very glad that I am only staying for 1 night in this hotel. The weird part of the... More

In the midst of one of the most vibrant areas of one of the most vibrant cities in the world. The location is fantastic, close to the airport bus and surrounded by restaurants and bars. The room was clean. That's as good as it gets though. The room was tiny, so small that there wasn't enough floor space to open... More
