I didn't really read any of the reviews before booking. I just noticed that the hotel had a discounted price, was an apartment style room and have 4 star rating. I wasn't expecting anything special, but on check in Mr. Jiang, as mentioned in almost all the other reviews, was their to greet me. They even put up notes on the wall and door greeting new guests by name.
My trip to South Korea was to just be a few days, but I knew I'd be spending a lot of time in my hotel doing some computer work so I was looking for a cozy apartment style stay. The room exceeded my expectations in terms of having to stay indoors most of my stay. I made a quick stop to the nearby supermarket and was able to cook complete meals myself. The apartment really is stocked with all the things you'd need and perhaps more.
I didn't have any problems with payments, but I it sounds like the other reviews were strictly a booking.com problem. Everything in the room appeared to be as clean as can be, but of course it's still a good idea to wash things regardless. I mean, I even rewash dishes and some utensils before I use them in my own house.
The room I stayed in had a very nice desk for me to set up camp and the computer chair was perfect for all of the sitting I had to do. I also rather enjoyed the indoor balcony. It was nice to be able to take a break from time to time and relax out their with a coffee.
In conclusion, this hotel is great for business travelers or people staying for an extended period of time. If your stay is short and you plan on hurried sightseeing you might not like that it's 20-30 minutes from the city center. All in all this hotel met and exceeded my expectations.
