“This was a very good choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We had triple beds room. And for a family of 4 comprised of 2 kids and 2 adults it was plenty comfortable. Beds moved easily to form any size bed.
The hotel seats in a midst of old small industrial shops all around. So the immidiate surrounding is not the prettiest. However I am there to tour the city and the location of this hotel is amazing.
Airport bus stops right in front of the hotel door step where the guest greeter treat you with utmost respect.
The city bus stops right in front as well as a subway train station.
Staffs were all eager to serve each and every guest throughout our entire stay.
Dongdaemun is a short walk from the hotel and Myoungdong is within 10 min walking distance.
Good english speaking staffs.
Room service is priced high so we ate out the most of the time.

Overall, great place to stay. Will come back again next time.

Very close to Namdaemun market, Gwangjang and Myeongdong for shopping. It is a nice hotel, The room was nice and clean. The washbasin and dressing table were outside the shower room and made the room decor unique. We were not helped with our luggage when we arrived though! The view from the hotel is not the prettiest sight, however it is located in a good spot for commute to the important tourist sights with the subway or taxi. It is not located in a touristy sight and is in a road lined with lighting stores!

As most of the reviewers pointed out....its one of the better value for money hotels in the heart of the action in Seoul.
- Location near to major shopping belts of Myeongdong, Namdemun and Dongdamun etc.
- Lotsa authentic and quirky food joints around the areas..you could spot gems among them.
- Clean rooms and fantastic staff who speaks english.
- Airport Limousine right at the doorstep of the hotel.
- The Doorman cum Concierge was No.1 in terms of service. Volunteering help in directions, carrying of luggage to the Limo. And standing in the middle of the road to flag down the airport limo..!

There's a airport transfer bus that's convinently located at the airport arrival and stops right outside the hotel. It costs 10,000 won per person. The bus is air conditioned and comfortable for the one hour travel out of the airport to the hotel. The subway station is right outside the hotel, so you just need to exit and turn right and walk one lane down and it's at the station. Dongdaemun history and culture station for shopping till mid night is one stop away on the green line. Not the best place if you want life and human traffic at the door step.

The hotel is located in an area where lights, hardware and suppliers of office accessories are sold. There are quite a few food stores around as well. There are no shopping or night life here. On Sundays, 99% of the shops are closed and you would have thought you came by a ghost town. It's basically a work area so just to keep expectation in line. But on weekdays, the food stores are open.

The hotel provides 2 bottled water daily, does not provide toothbrush and toothpaste (we brought our own so we don't know if it's upon request), shower gel, conditioner and shampoo are dispenser sort and it's stuck to the wall next to the tub (it's quite decent quality, my hair doesn't dry out frm using their shampoo).

Staff at the reception counter, concierge and bell boy speaks basic English so it's convenient.

For the price paid abt $150 per night, it's above average.

The hotel is directly linked to both airports via the airport limousine (bus 6015 from Incheon). Bus stops right in front of hotel, so, no worries on directions for 1st time visitors to Seoul. The hotel is also served by shuttle bus and is 3 min walk to nearest subway "Eujiro 4-Ga" (Exit 10). Hotel staff speaks good English. Delightful service as I arrived at 10+ am and the frontdesk graciously allowed me an early check-in with upgrade to Ladies Twin. Room is clean and just right for 2 people. There is a convenience store just next door and if you venture down the same street, a couple of korean restaurants can be found. Note though that the washing basin is outside the bathroom, in the walkway to the beds area. So, a bit of inconvenience as you have to carefully keep the washing area dry so as not to wet the walkway.

I picked this hotel because it has an Incheon airport bus that drops you off directly in front of it. Cannot get any easier than that. The Hotel itself did not disappoint either. Location is pretty good for the first time visitor near the Myeong dong area so all the tourist sites are within close distance by subway.

We got a triple room with two single beds and a sofabed. The room looks modern and I had no issues with it. Staff was very nice and spoke English without a problem. WIFI included is always a plus.

If I were to stay in Seoul again I would definitely think of staying here again. But I may try elsewhere to be closer to a different part of Seoul.

This hotel is clean, excellent access to shops, subway etc and was fabulous and modern. That is of course until everyone else turned in for the night.

The wooden floor boards and paper thin front door carry a lot of noise from the foot traffic in the hallways and guests staying above you.

The bathroom is interesting as the basin is in the entrance of the hallway and outside not with the shower and toilet. Of course this is excellent if you wish to brush your teeth while the other person is in the shower.

This room had a full king size bed to the western standards and was not too small so that you felt as if you were in a box.

Nice, clean and modern, however, due to the noise factor, it is unlikely that I will be staying a second time.
