friendly owner, friendly staff and good location-10 mins walk to Myeongong and N Seoul Tower, 5 mins walk to Namdaemun and train station-Hoehyoen. You are allowed to use their washing machine and dryer machine.

I love this place. I stayed there during April 2013. The place is really clean and the location is totally perfect and just a few minutes away from the Hoehyeon station. The staff is so polite and nice too.
