“LOVEly Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Ok - let's say it as it is, this hotel is a love hotel that can be a short stay or not. After an issue with another hotel that we had booked we ended up here. While the staff don't speak fluent English they were still very helpful. We stayed for 3 nights in the large Coffee Shop themed room(most appropriate for South Korea) and it was really clean and comfortable. There were two PC's a TV in front of a two person bath, a huge TV in front of the King size bed, a huge mirror on the roof that could open up to the sky, a phone charger and WiFi oh and lots of "personal products". The only problem we had was the very small bath towels. It is a short walk from the train station and is centrally located.

Room Tip: Just look at the pictures in the foyer but if you are still unsure ask to be shown a room. Room siz...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We choose J Motel for two reasons: Good location and nice pictures in booking.com. First the only negative point: Staff is nice and tries to help but we had some little hickup with our booking.com-reservation since the hotel staff does not speak english.
Apart from that we had a great stay at an excellent price (during the week it is cheaper). The rooms are huge with lots of items that fall under the category of asian kitsch: Huge TV, fridge (with free refill), glass-sterilizer, hair-dryer with hair-iron, asian style toilet, computer, colored lamps etc. etc. The interior is colorful and very creative: Colorful wall papers, shower with TV and "couch", Mirrors everywhere. These types of motels are usually rented by couples for short stays which do not include sleeping and so, towels are small, blankets are few.
However, this Motel motels is one of the modern types which caters also to a presumed female taste, so you find lots of pink, lots of mirrors and a generally cozy atmosphere which perfectly suits any tourist with an open mind. Noise was not a problem at all.
