I was in Room 902. Since they are all different, maybe the other are better. Be sure to check your room, or you might get stuck in mine. The place was packed, so I was stuck with it.
Lots to like: Good location, friendly staff, speedy Internet. Near a UNESCO heritage site which is not to be missed.
Hyper-annoying issue 1: My room had no window. Let me explain: The single window (perhaps 8 square feet) had a mirror on the room side. So there was no way to get fresh air or natural light without opening the window and letting in the noise of Seoul. I felt like I was in a cell.
Annoying issue 2: There is no place to put soap or a towel in the bathroom. And the shower wand cannot be put at any place above the waist. Essentially, you took a navy shower here.
Annoying issue 3: They have a small screen on the wall that could not be turned off. It's about 3 inches only, but rotates through pictures, so when you try to sleep the light is constantly changing. I kept hitting the button to turn it off but it kept coming on.
Annoying issue 4: Good luck trying to get the TV to work. The place is loaded with foreigners, but everything is in Korean. Just a booklet to help us would let us use the unit.
