4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

I stayed there in September 2011 with my family. The apartment is slightly hidden at the back lane, but it has got a 7-eleven at the lobby. Make sure you ask for the location map in Korea language at the reception to show it to the taxi drivers otherwise they will not know where it is.

The apartment comes with kitchenette and washing machine. However, there is no cooking pots and...etc. Unless you request and pay for it.

The washroom is rather small and maybe a little bit too small, but we can live with it.

September (autumn) is a very nice time to visit Seoul, but make sure you closed the window at night because of mosquitos. We all got bitten by them badly!

Breakfast is very simple and not that bad actually, but dont expect any 4-5 star quality and quantity.

Room Tip: Closed the window at night to prevent mosquitos coming in.

This is a typical residence in Seoul, huess 1st or 2nd generation which means not new facility. However, room was clean and neat with necessary amenities including cooking facility if you like ot make a quick meal for yourself.
I paid $80 per night and I was happy with that because it is not easy to find such a quality place in heart of center city.
Location is close to everywhere in a center city, Seoul and you can reach anywhere in 5-10 min by Taxi or subways. Subway station was 10-15 mn walk coz the residence stands in middle of furniture market (or town). I rather used a taxi instead of subway.
Overall, I think this is a good alternative for travellers who like to stay close to Myungdong area.
Based on price tag, it was a goo stay in a clean room.

Since this is a residence, don't expect detailed and extensive travel information although you can pick some brochers and maps at a main lobby.

spent 1 night, room was clean and very neat, downside 2 single beds for a couple. Hotel was on the older side. Staff were very helpful despite the language barrier. Breakfast was good, location was good felt safe walking the streets at night, weather was very cold, snow, and snowfalls but it was winter. Downside trying to find somewhere to eat that looked safe, unfortunetly ended up at KFC, walked all over the city without a problem. Nice Hotel for a short stay. Great view of city from the Roof.

I don't know where to start with this place. Terrible location, (unless you want to buy a motorbike) down dingy side streets and a long walk to the subway or even a coffee shop. Forget about local taxis - we were quoted $33 to go 2 miles. Bathroom was dirty, bed was tiny, corridors were noisy and the whole place was depressing. Dining options are from the small 7/11 shop. Staff are helpful though. We checked out after a few hours and found a much better option nearer the airport - and much cheaper. Avoid unless you enjoy eating biscuits in your room for lunch and dinner.

This is not a hotel for the fastidious. It is getting old. But I also stay at top line Hilton's, Hyatt"s etc so for me when it comes to family and cost the perfet fits into place. If you can take some warts this is excellent family value for money. Just having a good size room for the family is a start. Good service is a quality follow up. The 7-11 down stairs puts the icing on the cake.

better to book yr hotel elsewhere. this place is a 15 min walk to subway , u have to endure the cold in winter. and the night fall at 6pm so its not very safe to walk alone.

hotel bathroom is mouldy and they dont clean the room at all for 9 nights we were there. lots of dust on the floor. I would nt stay here again.
front desk - only one staff was helpful. and dun bother asking the lady, its waste of time. the washing machines sometimes doesnt work and the stove areas have not been cleaned for a while.
