Small hotel, modern amenities. Most of the labels are in Korean though like the controls for the lighting and the toilet, so I had to do with trial and error. The housekeeping staff were courteous, and they all look the same I thought at first they were twins. Same hair and make-up. Staying here for 4d/3n.

It is a small hotel but ok enough if you would be sightseeing most of the time. Not near any major tourist attractions but near plastic surgery centers. With mini stop store in front of hotel. Make sure you bring your own shampoo, toothbrush, and toothpaste. It isn't free. They only provide lotion and soap plus cotton buds and shower... More

Strategically located small hotel in the heart of Hongdae neighborhood with good, clean rooms and pleasant staff. In-room items are not free but are in keeping with the hotel's environmental and energy conservation policy. Smart toilets are a nice touch. Rooms could use more windows and natural lighting though.

I stayed in Hotel Sunshine during my visit to South Korea in November 2013 for the Thanksgiving break. I was there for a night before my flight to Jeju Island. I found the Hotel Sunshine a comfortable hotel. The guest room is clean and equipped with ample toiletries. It has free wireless internet, breakfast, with fridge in the room, cable... More

Was in Seoul, Korea last week and my group was booked in Hotel Sunshine in the Gangnam district. Locationwise it was a bit far from myeungdong and other shopping areas and places of interest so a taxi is the way to go. If you're with a tour then transportation wont be a problem. Took a stroll at night to explore... More

Pleasant stay An average hotel.. Kinda small room, with wall mounted tv, clean linens, bathroom is spacious enough. Amenities were complete except for the toothbrush which you have to pay. Loved their digital toilet seat. Heater was working, good thing since the temperature was - 10. We enjoyed the breakfast, not too many courses though, but it was great. Location... More

This is a nice, clean hotel, about a 20min walk from Apgujeong station. Most of the staff can understand English, and are friendly. The biggest problem with this hotel is the noise. It gets very noisy at night since there is a karaoke club next door. We can hear loud music every night, even when we wear ear plugs. We... More

I stayed in this hotel for a week back in end of April - early May 2012. The weather was getting hot but the hotel does not offer air-conditioning which was a bummer because it was almost 29 degrees one night. No joke. This is what the room temperature monitor told me and I'm sure it's correct. The hotel staff... More
