Hongdae - the center of underground culture and urban arts A district for youths, Hongdae is a unique cultural locale bustling with cultural events including indie music, busking, and flea markets. It is a place where party and music-loving clubbers, free-spirited artists and hipsters come together. It is also a place where digital and analogue coexist, and where graffiti and the footprints of urban art can be found on every corner. L7 Hongdae will replace the Cheonggiwa (Blue Roof) Gas Station - a building that has represented the Hongdae district for the past 43 years - as the new landmark of Hongdae. It is the third lifestyle hotel by L7 following Myeongdong and Gangnam, boasting a rooftop bar, a swimming pool, and various cultural contents unique to the Hongdae district, all in pursuit of value beyond the standard hotel. L7 Hongdae is a delightful cultural station, filled with chic and artistic individuals, that turns the mediocrity of an ordinary day into a festivity.

Neighborhood
Hongdae
Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s top art school. From its assortment of murals to the occasional amateur street performances, creativity and expression make up the wild and beating heart of vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets drawing consistent crowds. At Hongdae, there’s never a shortage of things to do and see; food and drink options are nearly endless as are shops and noraebang (karaoke) rooms. Hongdae is also one of Seoul’s top party and club scenes catering to a younger demographic; if a packed club isn’t your scene, you'll also find a range of music venues and bars offering live music in all genres. Although Hongdae has lost much of its unique appeal and undergone rapid commercialization in recent years, be sure to explore Hongdae’s edges in areas such as Sangsu-dong and Yeonnam-dong where Hongdae’s fiercely independent streak still runs freely.

A fantastic hotel! The hotel is 100m walk from Exit 1 of Hongik University Station, meters away from numerous restaurants (there's a seafood restaurant, Indian restaurant and cafe in the same building), as well as it's own restaurant on 21st floor and poolside bar on 22nd floor.

For the price we paid ($120 all in) this was a reasonable place to stay. Its location is great if you are planning to hang out in the hongdae area (which is somewhat touristy though not as bad as myungdong). If you are accustomed to the US rating system, I would say that this

This hotel is located right at a very good spot where you get to enjoy great food and fun. Also, it's super convenient to take trains to the Airport as well as to other regions of Seoul. Besides, this hotel is new and cost-effective compared to those in other popular regions.

Booked a Superior double for our 3 night stay earlier this week. The hotel is very well located, just a short walk from Hongdae station exit 1 which conveniently had an escalator. Our stay also started well because the front desk allowed us to check in early. This was gratefully

I also recommend the limousine bus service. It's a smooth 5-7 min walk from the bus stop to the hotel, and you just have to cross the road - no stairs or steps, although streets can be a bit crowded depending on what time you arrive. Agree with everyone else above that said the train might be a bit tough with large luggage. If not on a budget, taxi would be the easiest option though!

Dear yingwuen Thank you for your inquiry. Standard Family room based on 1 Double bed and 1 Single bed. Unfortunately, AGODA state is incorrect information. We will change that information as soon as possible. Thank you.

"Upgrade to upper floor really worth for money."
"Do not sleep near the 21st floor"
"i can hear the traffic at night, but this hotel is in the middle of downtown Hongdae so the traffic noise should be expected."
"Rooms not facing the main road"
"Good city view on 19th Floor"
