The receptionist is friendly she help us, because we didn't booked before arrived there. So she give some tips, like: book by internet to get good prices. Bed was good, bathron is not new-need to reform. The location is pretty good because is next to tube station and tourist point.

Stayed from March 27 to Apr 4 (about a wk or so). The location of this hotel is its best advantage. Many subway stations within walking distance. Gwanghwamun Square (Running Man location) is nearby where one can check out the King Sejong Story (museum) as well as learn about Admiral Yi and how he defeated the invading Japs while being...

Spent the new year at seoul and booked 5 nights. A couple of things ive notice is that you either have to bring your own toothbrush and toothpaste or buy one. However it was useful that there was a coffeeshop and a 24hour convenient store at the lobby floor. Location-wise it is a 10-15min walk to myeongdong (shopping heaven). The... More

Hot and cold tap/bath water were functioning. Air purifier and TV looked brand new and working perfectly. Cons - The towels smelled a bit if you put it to your face. If you... More

I booked this hotel after finding a great deal online. I stayed a total of 3 nights. Upon arrival, I was met with a presence of coldness, no smiles and a frustrated face. I was greeted by a man whom I felt was a little angered at my presence. I had initially requested early check in via my booking online... More

Food pieces under table and crumbs all over floor + aircon was NOT working. This is summertime in Seoul, people! Awful! SO tired from traveling,... More
