“I will go back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2015

I was staying here for short winter trip with friends. I stayed in 10th floor. The view from my room was nice. I loved the breakfast although the restaurant is a bit small. But overall, this is a good hotel with affordable price considering its location

Pros :
- good location, near mrt
- very fast wifi
- good breakfast
- clean room and nice bath ammenities

Cons :
- unfriendly hotel staff
- lifts are narrow and slow

Room Tip: Level 10 or more will give you better city view

I booked since i was only after it's location.
Was surprised it wasn't too bad at all.
4.5* hotel for the price of 5* , in a city with many of good options isn't the best deal in town, but reasonable.

Nothing to write home about.

Yes the staff is very friendly and helpful. But the room service has to be improved. They do not replace the soap, shampoo although it is over. There is not much shopping around the area. The room is very old and some plug tops, air conditioning were not working properly. Also I did not have the safely vault although my colleagues room which was right next had it

I stayed at this hotel in the mid 90's and you know what? It's same rooms but the outside was remodeled. This is more of the touristy Japanese tour trap but not bad for the price compared to others in the area and Itaewon as well. Old style rooms like when Kim Gun Mo was popular. Not that bad though. The staff was pretty nice though.

Dear friends, i want to recommend you to look for another hotel. I could not say that this hotel is complete disaster, but i am sure you can find much better one.
People who work there are nice, but the hotel is not.
Everything surrounding is cheap and bad quality. I was reading here that this hotel was renovated but only modern thing is the laminated floor on the wall. Yes, they have laminate floor of the wall.
Ceramic tile in bathroom has a dirty seams.
Plasterboard walls have some cracks.
Crome surface from water tap was peeled.
Door to bathroom was falling apart.
Carpeting was dirty, it need urgent wash.
Also there was some strange spots on ceiling.
My room was no smoking but every evening it was terrible smell of smoking. The problem is with air ventilation, so this smell comes from somewhere.
Price for room service is a rubbish. 12 dollars for tea and 14 for cappuccino ? REALY ?
Terrible matres. It was extremely rigid.

Internet was good and fast enough.
Samsung toilets are nice.
Breakfast was only good thing in that hotel. I was sating there for a week and if you wake up in early morning, you can have a amazing chopped beef steak.
But tea at breakfast was terrible. It was a huge water tank with hot water with a 3 teabags floating inside.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor with a backside view. Or look for another hotel if possible.

Excellent hotel in the city. Close enough to subway links to get around and a short walk to the kukkiwon. I was there on a training break so this was great as I could go to the kukkiwon and to local gyms to train. The food was great the breakfast in particular was outstanding. For dinners though I would recommend going out and checking out the local restaurants as they were great. The nightlife was good as well. My brother and I visited a club which for the life of me I can't remember the name, but it was a great experience especially having to make a 2 foot jump to the dance floor after a couple of shandies. It's not a family break but for business or a short trip to Seoul it's great.
