I've been to Seoul many times, and 80% of my stays are at this hotel including my recent trip last week. It's not the nicest or the at the heart of the shopping area, but the convenience is there! First of all, it's located at the end of the bus line 6002 from the airport, so if you fall asleep... More

Located just beside cheongnyangni subway station and Lotte Plaza (lots of sales during summer!). 5 min walk to cheongnyangni fruits and vegetable market. Many local "ah jummah" homecooked style eateries nearby, cheap and good meals. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. But no English, although the concierge manager could speak very simple mandarin.

The hotel meets my expectations from reading other travellers' reviews. It was a bit difficult to locate it first after embarking from the airport bus as the sign was not in English (photo showed the hotel from the station). The hotel exterior and facility is typical of 2 star hotel. The hotel is located very near to Cheongyangni Station, so... More

The hotel is hardly 5 mins walk from the subway station, next to Lotte Departmental store. It has a few hawker spots during the night which makes it very convenient. As to the hotel itself - it does look like a 2 star hotel, old and not well maintained. Check in was ok, rooms are ok. we had the triple... More

From airport, take Bus #6002 to Cheongnyangni Station, about a one and a half hour ride. You will see this hotel on a small side street beside Lotte Plaza. Simple lobby with two computers with internet (but in Korean, so you have to figure out how to make it English). Staff is friendly, helpful and good enough in English. We... More

we had a pleasant 1 week stay in this hotel. Like most of the review mentioned in this forum, it is indeed best chosen for budget travellers and affordable enough to pay for some privacy. It's confortable if you are expecting just the basic necessity. the money we have saved here instead of staying at higher class hotel allowed us... More
