Generally the hotel is a welcome alternative to a downtown hotel. Not much going on in the perimeters but there is a subway entrance nearby. The breakfast is just average .... If you want the same menu served for the next five days. The location and ambience of the hotel are also good if you are part of a Group... More

The bathroom is little too small as for showering. Might knock your hand when turning around scrubbing soap. The location is safe too even till late... More

This hotel is really accessible, it is near two metro station. It is clean and has little and nice kitchen, good beds, big bathroom. Unfortunately the breakfast is not good. Don't forget it's a residence so you might have less service than in a hotel. Good value for money.

Although the location is not really near the city center, it's still convenient and safe. It take 1.5 subway hours from Inchon airport to the residence and probably 20 mins from residence to Doonta area. Good English speaking staff and comfortable room with large space to put all luggage and shoes once you go shopping a lot. The room is... More

I have to say the room is very clean, equipped with a proper kitchen and walk-in wardrobe, similar concept to a studio apartment. There is a washing machine available but everything was in Korean so you would need help to operate it. Did not have their breakfast so I can't comment on that however we did try to have coffee...

This apartment/Residence is quite new so taxi drivers may not be familiar with it. Be sure to take their hotel business card with you! Good location for us as its not sat in the middle of busy streets, you will appreciate the location once you hit Myeongdong shopping! Very easy to find if travelling on the Underground, 7mins walk from... More

Rooms are clean and very functional (you can refer to hotel photos) The washing machine comes with dryer as well. But you need the hotel staffs to... More

Location - A bit far from the city, nearest subway station - Dapsimni or Sindap (both abt 5mins walk) and around 20mins to Dongdaemun / Myeondong area for night market. No other notable building around the vicinity. It's more like a residential suburb to me. Apartment condition - Very new, considered fully furnished as it comes with kitchen and washing... More

Basically it was a newly furnished service apartment. The room was small but comfortable. There was in-room kitchen and washing machine. Unfortunately my friend and I went to Seoul for leisure so we expected more. The location was away from the main tourist districts so it took about 15 to 20 mins by subway for getting the main shopping areas.... More
