“Good location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

I have stayed here for 2 nights. This hotel has a really good location as it's just opposite of Dongdaemun shopping area and you can find lots of nice food too. My room was at 3rd floor facing National Medical Centre. Don't be too worry as there are not many cars passing by during late nights, I can't really hear noise from outside during my sleep. For me, the curtain is not thick enough to cover the light in the morning. (I stayed awake very late due to shopping until 3 to 4am). If it's possible please request for higher level room. The room is rather small, something like Hong Kong's hotel but it's slightly better than Hong Kong. Small kitchen with simple cookware and microwave is in the room. They provide a big towel and 2 small towels, shampoo and soap. For others toiletries, please bring your own. Another thing I like is they provide hot and cold water dispenser on every floor, so you do not have to boil water if you need hot water. Overall, it's still consider a pleasant stay for me.

Room Tip: Pls request for a higher floor room.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

The location of this hotel is really good, just 5 min walk to the Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Metro Station, and about 10 min walk to the Dongdaemun shopping area. You can do your shopping every night in the shoping area until 4 a.m. and walk back to your hotel, that is very attractive to those who love shopping. Besides, the airport bus station is just outside the hotel, very convenient.

The room is a bit small but clean and functional. There is a small pantry inside the room which utensils provided, so you can do some cooking in the room. The washroom is small and there is no separation between the toilet and the shower area, so the washroom becomes all wet after shower. The water pressure is alright and the hot water supply is steady.

The staff are helpful with good English.

Reommend to those who think hotel location is the most important consideration.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

I went back to Seoul and I stayed back in Euljiro again, because of its excellent location (near to dongdaemun shopping area and the station with multiple lines)

Everything was good, super value for money with a small kitchenette and we even whipped out simple dish like ramen with dumpling for our dinner.

Shortcoming: Room is really small for 2 pax, cause it is mainly a business service apartment and the bed is not as comfy. Although location is great for shopping, there isnt much bakery near the hotel. The nearest bakery, Paris Baguette is at Dongdaemun Station!

However, this time round, I find the room slightly bigger than the previous time I was there. I think because we stayed at the corner room. They have also installed wifi, so no need to use lan cable to surf the net. Washing machine can also be found at Basement 1 with only 1,000 won.

Rooms are quite small for 2 person,especially the bathroom. However, the hotel location is great, just few mins walk to subway station.There is also a airport bus stop exactly outside the hotel, which is convenient.
The hotel staffs are generally okay, though they can't speak English well. There are a convenience store and a post office nearby. If you are in hurry in mail the postcards, you can also request the staffs to do it for you.

I keep coming back to this hotel because of the three reasons on the title. This hotel does the job. It is not in the middle of everything but it's close enough and the subway and buses are literally two minutes away. And there is an airport limo stops right outside, which is a big plus for a budget hotel. There are plenty of restaurants and fast food in close proximity and you definitely won't go hungry. The convenient store and money exchange are just right outside. The service is much better than six years ago when I first stayed here. So they are trying. For its price, I really can't fault them. The only things are the rooms are small and they clean your room daily but don't change the sheets. It's ok if you travel solo but if you travel with someone who wants a bit of space, it's better to go next door to Western Co-op, a sister hotel.
