We booked one night in a standard double room. It was really cheap due to reserving it after the check-in time. The hotel is really close to the Sinchon station. The hallways of the hotel are quite narrow and the ceiling is low. The man at the reception was friendly and helpful. The room itself was in the basement floor,... More

The location is the most important thing about this hotel. It's within walking to distance to Anguk station, Anguk being quite a vibrant area itself. You can also walk to other location like Jongno-3 and Gyeongbok Palace. The room itself, well you get for what you pay for. It's reasonably sized and has room keeping every day. The mattress was...

It has been about a year since I stayed, but I thought I would contribute as I'm using the site to plan my next adventure. THE GOOD: Great location. You are about 2 minute walk from Sinchon Station (on the green/6 line). I very easily got from Gimpo to the hotel, with one line change I believe, and should be... More

Room is soooo dirty ! Hair everywhere dust everywhere i cant touch anything!! Plus stuff is unkind. I Never stay again this hotel... めっちゃ最悪なホテルです。 ベッドは髪の毛にほこりだらけ。 床も髪の毛だらけ(と言うか部屋代にあるもの全てほこりだらけ。) おまけにコンセントは1つしかつかえない、オンドルもきかない。 2日宿泊予定ですが明日出ます

WS Hotel is not true to the pictures provided. The room was unexpectedly small, with malfunctioning TV and fridge. The toilet and fridge has a horrible smell that sets people off. The mutliple power trip (4 in the course of one night) has caused severe inconvenience for me and my friend as she has to wake up to switch the... More

I stayed at WS Hotel for 5 days in October 2014. The location is excellent, very close to the subway and near Honggik University. However, the hotel itself is terrible. Sure it's a cheap hotel and I shouldn't expect much. And for the price and location, I would not have complained about its tiny smelly bathroom and the fact my... More

I wanted to stay in a nice locality so this was perfect for that. Area near Honggik Uni is perfect for nightout, good food and not too far from places. However the rooms are really small. I should give credit that the way they have used space is amazing. Free wifi that works well inside the rooms. Its not too... More

I wasn't expecting much because I've read some bad comments like smelly toilet but our room (203) was really nice - small but it was alright as I was still able to do Zumba and a bit of floor exercises. It would be a bit difficult to find it if you didn't do your research but we did our homework... More

When I booked the hotel, I did so because it was cheap, had good reviews, and was located close to the subway. I made the foolish decision of not bothering to print out a map or save anything on my phone, figuring if I got lost I could just ask for directions or find wifi and look it up on... More

Thanks for the nice and practical review. We're sorry for the difficulty you had. Even though we really want to inform how to get here, we cannot, because some booking sites just use their own map and we can't get the guest's e-mail. So, only if guests ask us by e-mail, we can send the specific map to make it... More
