Located 2 minute walk away from a subway station and within walking distance of the Korea War Museum and Itaewon. The room was large, with modern cable TV and fast Wifi. The bed was rock solid!! The bathroom was quite old. There are plenty of bars and restaurants located around the hotel.

This place isn't over the top nice, but for what you pay you get a decent place. WiFi was strong, bathroom spacious, stalked with shampoos and conditioners, flip flops and the ac unit was stellar. The staff was helpful, especially the one that spoke English. Location was prefect with tons of food options around.

Great location and the walk outside at time is very crowded. The place was clean and service was good. Some of the front desk staff seemed uncomfortable speaking English. Some employees seemed more friendly than others. Recommend for a short stay.

The hotel did not offer breakfast so we had to go find food both days but there is a convenience store just around the corner. No microwave but there was a frig. Easy... More

Rooms are quite small, difficult to move around. Only 1 convenience outlet. Free wi-fi and water. One staff was rude when we requested for additional water. For the price we paid, it did not meet my expectations. There is convenience store nearby.

Not a 3 star hotel, but it has really good localisation near underground and Seul Railway Station is 15 minutes walk from hotel so u can get there by your foot from train (Ktx or arex). It is not hard to find as others say. This is quite Good choice for stay in Seoul.
