The hotel is located in a very central area with plenty of and restaurants and coffee shops nearby. Shopping is not very far and can be walked to. Transit is available about 50m away. My room 1504 was very clean and comfortable and fairly large. It had twin beds, sitting chair and sofa as well as a large desk with... More

I was booked at this hotel for a conference that was located across the street for 5 nights. The lobby had a very strong sewage smell which was very off putting to begin with. I received my key card for the room and was told it was a twin bed. Not what I was expecting but went to my room... More

We have stayed here 2 times. We like the hotel, and love the area around it. There are a lot of good Korean restaurants nearby and a huge outdoor market area within easy walking distance. There is usually someone at the front desk who can communicate in passable English as well, which was nice for us. They are helpful. There... More

Room was pretty dated and didn't feel very welcoming. Bathroom yellowed, and need of an update. Was put in a triple bed room for some reason. Staff was also a little lacklustre, and lacked any warmth or interest in guests.

We stayed here for 4 nights. Our trip was a leisure trip and it was just a street away from the man made stream, city hall, banks, starbucks. It was very convenient! The only thing that we didn't like was the slow wifi. The staff especially the housekeeping was cheerful they kept on greeting us.

We stayed four nights here. Booked a room with no window (it was really cheap). Get a window.....I think you really need a window to adjust circadian rhythms. The location was fabulous. The City Bus kiosk was across the street. Meyongdong, Meyongdong Cathedral, Insadong, gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace and Secret Garden were all within an easy walking distance.

I stayed at this hotel on a visit to Seoul about 10 years ago, and just returned for another visit. As some people mentioned, the property is rather old, but everything in the room worked fairly well, and it's a good value for the price, especially considering the excellent location right in the heart of the city center, and just...

Appears to be an old property, rooms cramped for space. Nothing like a fancy boutique or a standard business hotel. I am 6 feets and surprisingly could not use the toilet of a room primarily assigned due to space, then got promptly changed on complaint. Being a vegetarian, finding an indian restaurant just steps away was a pro.. A very... More
