It was a holiday in China and all the hotels in Seoul are taken up, esp the 4-5 stars. I have no choice but to book a budget one and my associates in Seoul got me this hotel without knowing anything about this place.
For around USD80 its very cheap for a city like this. What you get is:
-Clean room (except for the bed sheets which looks rather old, the keyboard for the in room PC desperately needs a clean)
-All drinks (about 5 types of canned drinks) and usual coffee are free
-You get a PC (But those with kids watch out, as there are restricted material in there due to previous 'naughty' guest :P )
-You get all the stuff you need ie Shampoo ,soap, comb etc. Again some stuff that kids might get mistaken as "Ring shaped chewing gum"
-You don't get WiFi but I managed to plug out the CAT-5 cable from the PC and connect it to my laptop (as seen in photo)
-You get a small window and depend on which room, the one I got faced another wall of a building; not too nice
-Aircon, a big 42 or 50" TV with a DVD 5.1 surround system where you can borrow DVD from the reception. There's like 80 over movies titles. It's all free.
-Breakfast served in room, I never try but was told its toast+jam so rather simple.
Toilet and Cleanliness: I say not too bad esp for the price. You can see black mark on the edge of the showers but I seen it too in 4 stars hotel. The shower got fast hot water and good volume of water showering out. The floor is clean that you feel OK to walk around barefoot.
Noise: Somehow, the room next to me gets quite noisy as the sound comes through quite obvious when they walk past/close open doors.
Conclusion: If u are on a budget and USD80 is your budget, this hotel looks like a good choice. I saw there's like 5 other similar budget hotel nearby, you may want to take a look at those. I would not advice families with kids to stay there, but for tourist travelling as singles or as couple, this will be ideal.
