I stayed at this hotel for two nights on my first trip to Seoul. I booked it because of the rooms with the fun designs and I was not disappointed. Really liked my room (1107) which was unusual (sleeping under a tree...) but had everything I needed: WiFi, a big flat screen TV, mini-bar, hair dryer, kettle - all there,... More

I've stayed 2nights at there. First of all, I was surprized when I opened the main door. It was much different than what I thought, even though it's designed by some special designers which I knew. The rooms are so much fun especially the bathtub which located in the room. ^^ Also the front clerks were very helpful. It is... More

We had a great time during our stay at this hotel. Just one subway stop away from Gangnam, it proved to be a great location. It is about a 15 minute walk to the subway station and the staff were pleasant. The room was nicely decorated and had a jacuzzi tub as well as a lot of English channels, which... More

What a find in the heart of Seoul's Gangnam District! Every room is different and uniquely designed, and the hotel staff will try to move you if you're not happy with your room allocation. Yes the rooms are small but what do you expect? They are fully kitted out, and extremely comfortable. There is lots to do in Seoul, and... More

The location, in-room amenities and the price made it a phenomenal deal. You cannot get that price in one of the wealthiest areas in Seoul! It is only a 5 minute walk to COEX (via Hyundai Dept Store), and CALT (City Air Terminal, Express buses to Incheon/Gimpo). At the end of COEX mall block is access to a train station... More

I stayed here in early Sept 2012 with my husband. The rooms are small but well-appointed: toiletries are provided, there's a small refrigerator, regular glasses and wine glasses, etc. A unique feature of the hotel is that each room is a little different-- the name comes from the fact that several different designers designed the rooms. Some rooms have round... More
