Booked Deluxe Twin room (1 Double, 1 Single) via Hotelwide.com. Room advertised with sauna and jacuzzi included. Requested a quiet, non-smoking room on higher floors. Got a noisy and smelly smoking room on the 7th floor with 2 single beds and without sauna nor jacuzzi. Worst of all, the bathroom has no shower stall but has only an old style... More

To get here and if its your first time to Seoul, you'd better get the airport help desk write out the hotel name in korean. For me it was bus 602-1 to stop at Angguk-Dong for 9000W (and sit at the front so that you can hear the muffled announcement for the next stop). Once there, wave a cab. It'll... More
