Stayed at DW Design with 4 others family members. Room is very spacious and comfortable. Our room were cleaned daily with fresh towel. Sue, the Manager is thoughtful and easy going. Will definately be going back there when in Seoul. Location is good with easy access to Metro stations and surronding eateries.

It is nice guesthouse. Comfortable room and attentive staff.The room is much bigger than expected. And the breakfast is satisfying. There are some restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. Sue is so friendly and she introduces some interesting places around Hongdae. Would stay in this guesthouse again.

Is a lovely hotel, with pretty and charming staff. Near to subway station and lots of things to eat and buy. Distance from sub way station to the hotel is in walking distance, this makes it away from the business area and providing us a quiet place for resting in the night

We stayed at DW Design for two nights, then returned for seven more. Easy to find with directions I had downloaded ahead. Got there directly from the airport by the slow train, which stopped at the Hongdip University subway stop...only a five minute walk to the hotel. Room was basic but had a private bath. Harder beds as per usual... More
