The Good: ------------
We stayed here for 8 days and the Hotel staff spoke English well, I never had difficulty explaining myself and they were very helpful in guiding us around the area which we found was packed with convenience. Within a 5 minute walk there , is a major station with several major lines, most important of which is line 2, and that is the closest to the hotel ( exit number 2) attached to the station is a shopping center with many restaurants, a theater, and indoor water park. In the immediate area are many restaurants and most helpful of which are the cafe's which offer decent breakfasts and you'll often find young people who can speak some English and menu's that have English on them, also a there are 2 banks 3 minutes away which you can use to withdraw money without incurring ATM fees at decent exchange rates(and greater amounts then $100). The area is not very touristy but is safe, ( there is a police station and fire station) and all the tourist destinations are just a few minutes away by train. (average cost of a train trip is sub $1 ) To get to the hotel i suggest using the airport shuttle which will drop you at the station, and is faster and easier then trying to take the trains and having to transfer lines, find elevators for your luggage etc and only costs about $15. finally before getting to the room, there is a Japanese restaurant on the second floor which was nice but was a little pricey. Walking through the hotel, it did look a bit dated but is decent , and nothing as bad as I've seen in many American hotels, at least each floor had a different theme. Now the room itself looked very nice, well themed and decorated (romantic) with a nice large tv with a few english channels, a work computer if you didn't bring your own laptop, fast reliable WiFi, complimentary water and juice in the cooler, which got restocked every day and a nice large bathroom and tub. (the room itself was large compared to many Japanese/Korean living conditions) The room also sports a nice lighting system in which you can control the TV, the lights and the air conditioning with a single remote.
The bed was on the harder side, but I had a good nights sleep every time and on the good side it was nice and large so the two of us had plenty of room to stretch out. it was also very nice and clean and serviced every day.
The view was decent (10th floor), but the window was small, then again, on the good side, once we closed the decorative/functional shutters the room became nice and dark as well as silent. Another suggestion is to close all the doors at night, the door way has two doors one as a transition for when you take off your shoes, and the second door really helps block all hallway noise and is meant to be closed anyways.
My biggest concern was the air conditioning vent is pointed at you when you sleep ( we had a deluxe single room) , so it became quite cold at night, we had to rely on cooling the room down at night and then turning it off when we went to sleep. another solution was to put towels in the railing in front of the bed and point the vents down. we stuck with cooling the room off before we went to sleep, and that worked fine. another idea is to not put the temp so low at night.
all in all, for the $55ish we paid per night, i thought it was one of the best values for a hotel that I've ever had, the staff were very friendly and helpful, nice big clean rooms. great location.
