The room is clean which I'm very particular about. I must say that it's not easy to locate the hotel as it's located in a small lane. However, the hotel is surrounded by many eateries and convenient stores. It's walkable to Myeongdong (about 10 mins) and Nandaemun (about 5 mins). The staff speaks really good English. They are super friendly and helpful. They really go all the way to help you whenever possible. There was an occasion when I saw a staff helping an old couple by dragging their luggages to the main road to hire a cab. There was once when my friends and I were having breakfast at the kitchen and a staff came to ask where we were heading later. He went back to his reception desk, googled and helped us wrote down the address in Korean on a note pad so that we could show the address to the taxi driver. Everyday without failed, the staff at the reception would greet you and ask if everything was alright during your stay. No wonder this hotel ranks high in Tripadvisor! I will recommend friends to stay here.
