My friends and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights (April 2015). The hotel was booked via AirAsiaGo. No problems were encountered during check-in. It's located at a convenient distance from Bomun Station. The staff are nice and accommodating. Our room was the triple room with separate beds. The room was not cramped. We had a cabinet, dresser, tv,... More

This is not a fancy type of hotel. So if you wanted a luxury hotel then don't consider this. But overall throughout the 7D6N stay in this hotel I felt quite comfortable. The room was clean and neat but abit old and the room I get is a bit small but just nice for 2 people. The hotel doesn't provide... More

Located in a quiet neighborhood, do not expect much action or nightlife from the immediate surroundings. There are a couple of grill restaurants, some small eateries, convenience stores and fruits stall. But that is all. If you don't plan to waste your time in a hotel room, if you want to save money for better food or for shopping, and... More

Good Points: - Within 5 minutes walk of the subway on line 6, making it very easy launch point for most of central Seoul. - It had free Wifi, which was not advertised. This was very important to me as I could Skype and FaceTime friends and family back home. - Friendly staff. I checked in at 11:45pm having traveled... More

For the price they charge, it is certainly a good bargain for a clean hotel room equipped with basic amenities of a hotel. Staffs were friendly and helpful despite language barriers. The food shop nearby served good Korean food that we even decided to go for a meal before our early morning flight. The food shop (small but delicious) gives... More

It's a good choice for budget travel. Not to expect luxurious & grand decoration, rooms are tidy & clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Food shops are nearby. Located close to Bomun subway station, just a 5-min straight way. If you take airport bus (#6002) to the hotel, you'll stop at Sinseol-dong station. Then take a taxi just at its... More

Not many English reviews on this hotel so I thought I'd add my 2 cents. Stayed for 3 nights - service is fine, most of the staff do speak at least basic english and the rooms are quite roomy in fact, if not the most modern. Free bottles of water, hairdryer, etc are standard. Location-wise, its 5 mins walk from... More
