Two couples stayed for 7 nights and enjoyed our stay overall. The location was very convenient for us to get acquainted with Seoul. The hotel is minutes away from the Chungjeongno subway station (this is also the Incheon airport shuttle stop), the complex has many restaurant options, a Paris Baguette nearby (our primary source of breakfast), a Lotte Mart about...

This place has different names- Brown Suite or Brown Stone. This is not an hotel but what is called an 'offistel' in Korean-small furnished apartments rented long term by students, young office workers etc. it looks like the owner is renting out vacant rooms as an hotel. Overall this is a pretty good value for money- spacious rooms, good location.... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 19th floor from 1 to 6 April. Good location. Within 5-10 mins walk to two train stations, Chungjeongno station and Seoul Station. Lots of eateries around the hotel and a big Lotte department store and supermarket at Seoul Station. 2 airport shuttle buses, nbr 6005 and 6015, go to the hotel which... More

Stayed 6D5N room 3906 is not a good room as the water heater does not works well and we need to wait quite some time to let the water boiled. Besides, the water filter cant be used and we need to buy our own mineral water for our 5 night stay. Basic amenities were all there and they will change... More

Was actually quite afraid of finding this apartment due to the few reviews it had and some reviews over at agoda stating that it's quite difficult to find this apartment and quite troublesome to find the reception. Looks like I'm wrong, it's a really EASY place to find cause of it's very tall apartment (my apartment was on the 25th... More
