This hotel looks brand new, with lots of tech details in the room. Check in and out was easy. Bedroom was small but OK for a couple. There was a laptop in the room with internet conection. The air conditioning system was on the ceiling. I didnt use it by night, but guess this might be an issue because it... More

For a two star hotel, I would rate this an 11/10. It is incredibly convenient to the convention center, clean and provided wifi that worked fast and consistently. I spent a week in their Polaroid Suite, one of their larger suites. They nailed the details of design from the bathroom to bedroom. The staff were always pleasant and helpful, glad... More

The staff spoke english well however the female clerk whose english was better was also the most rude. She completely ignored me choosing instead to stare blankly at the computer. The lock on the room door did not work. The plug in the bathtub did not close completely making it impossible to take soak in the tub. The room was... More

I stayed in the hotel with this name in Hongdae. The room was small but it had everything I needed. I had the best Sunday brunch with my son at the restaurant downstairs. The hallways had soft lighting and soft music playing. Easy and quick check in and check out. Complementary beverages in the refrigerator as well.

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
