I love this hotel primarily for its great location. While it may be a bit far from major shopping areas like myeongdong, it is located just above the subway station which we used a lot during our stay. The hotel also has a free shuttle service to bring you downtown. The hotel has a supermarket (Lotte super) and a good selection of restaurants and coffee shops in the basement. Another plus is the front desk staff which are very polite and helpful, most especially Ms. Monica Han. The room may be a bit small (as expected) but very comfortable. The bathroom is also clean except for the rubber mat (shower) which i decided not to use because i saw mildew in it. On our 2nd night of stay, I also discovered that the mugs we used the night before were not washed but simply put back in its place. This is forgivable as I understand that it may just be an oversight and happened only once anyway. I will definitely go back and stay in this hotel again (hopefully this april) and will recommend this to my friends who will be travelling to seoul. I just hope that they could assign me a room with a better view (full street view) on my next visit.
