“Conveniently located for Gagnam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

The hotel feels like a business hotel but has a high standard of decoration and excellent customer service. There is free wifi in all of the rooms which can be a little slow at times but it is free after all.

As a previous reviewer mentioned, there are no shower curtains. This is not a big deal apart from the wet socks when I wandered into the bathroom after a shower. Maybe it just isn't the done thing in Korea.

Lots and lots of food choices in the area to avoid going across the river to other side of Seoul.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

I wanted to stay near Garosugil and found this little gem on the google map! It is just about 10 mins walk to Garosugil via Sinsadong underground pathway exit 3, which is just 3 mins down the hotel. Airport limo bus 6009 stop is also 3 mins walk from the hotel. Though it doesn't have a 'grand' entrance but the rooms are clean, comfortable bed, big TV with hundreds of channels in Korean and English, free water bottles, amenities etc. My only complaint was, no shower curtain!
Next to the hotel there's a convenient store which comes in handy for Ramen supper.
A good, value for money, budget business hotel. Maybe it used to be a love hotel?
