“Enjoyable stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Chocolate tree feels like home after a tired day of shopping. Its clean n comfortable. Even though its a hostel it has all the facilities that a hotel could provide. Free wifi and also rental of the wifi egg. It is really useful when traveling as we can stay online all the time. The bosses here are friendly and always helpful. And there's party every wed!

Just back from seoul. It's really a good place! I love Chocolate Tree! CT brings a lot of memories to us during our seoul trip. All the things there are great! The location is quite near the subway and it's so convenient for us to go anythere in seoul. The staff are sooooooooooo nice and friendly! They are just like friends! really nice to meet all of you! CT offers a wide services like food, skype telephone, washing machine, etc. It makes me feel warm! I like the decoration of CT, it is beautiful and we can write memos and stick them on the board:)
Though the room we lived during 4 nights is not such big but most of the amenties is included! for example, computer, television, fridge. It is surprised that the wifi network is cover all the areas in CT!
I will choose to stay in Chocolate Tree again when i visit seoul in the future!!
Thanks CT gives us a memorable trip in korea:-) Fighting!

It's my first free&easy trip to Seoul. After searching for so many different hostels, I chose Chocolate Tree upon the recommendation from someone.

On my first day, I had issues with the wifi prepaid, they helped me with a refund and offered me the portable wifi egg for the whole of my stay! Chocolate tree has thought of everything for the guests. The entire stay of 2 weeks was so cosy and comfortable that I felt at home (:

The staff are so friendly, always so willing to help us. With greetings and concerns every day, I feel very welcomed.

Times when we're lazy to go out and have dinner, they can help us order food into the guesthouse! (:

It's a nice hostel. We've stayed for 4 nights here. The staffs were kind and friendly to us. We stayed in here is just like a home.

There are enough facilities for us to use. The rooms are clean and neat. Also, we can enjoy our breakfast everyday. We'll come back again next time!

As our trip is a fairly long one of 39days, the budget and comfort level of the room are our main concern.
Came across Chocolate Tree on the web when i was sourcing for a suitable yet budget accomodation for pax of 3. True enough, CT did not disappoint us. In fact, we were impressed with what they had to offer there.

CT is just like our home in Seoul. You can expect clean rooms and great service.
Rooms are equipped with whatever things you will need/have in your room at home. You can even find a PC in every room for your usage.
Shampoo, body wash, toothpaste and even facial wash are readily available for your usage in the shower room.
Best part of the small but warm feeling room is, you can find a big LED TV in your room which you can always switch on to watch the past and present episodes of music shows.. a bonus for kpop lovers~ hahaa!

Other than its great location (Sinchon), in CT, you can see that everything are being arranged to suits every travellers.
There's free toast (with choices of spreads) and even eggs available for all the guests throughout the whole day.
You can even whip up a complete meal if you like in the kitchen.
Stoves, pots and cultery are always there for you.
CT is so considerate that they even have a skype phone for you to call home (foc) should you miss your family while on holiday. I use it to call home almost everyday~

Above are all the material parts where CT had to offer to their guests.
What makes them special are the great service that the bosses and staffs had rendered to us.
We totally felt at home when we are there.
They are like our friends who we can always depend on should we requires any assistance during our trip.

All in all, Chocolate Tree is just like our home in the faraway Seoul.
Thumbs up and we will surely be returning should we visit Seoul again! ^^

This time is my first experience to stay in B&B, and CT is a good choice in Seoul. The room is very clean and the facilities are new and complete, it is just like as my private room in my country. Also the location is quite convenient nearby the subway.

Room Tip: Just tell every your request to them, they will try to arrange....
