“OK for a few days, relatively price”
Reviewed October 22, 2011

I arrived late, no help with the luggage. Check-in efficient.

The room I had on the 11th floor was clean and relatively large and clean. Beds are to my taste too hard. Breakfast is nothing exciting, but you will find something to eat. Coffee is not good, too watery.

Pros
Location, with subway and lots of bars and restaurants close by
High speed internet for free

Negative
Lobby bar, very expensive
Noise from the main street

If you only sleep there, then it is OK. If you want more then go somewhere else

Room Tip: Try not to get one facing the main street.

OK, if you like staying in the Hilton in Sydney, Australia - maybe this isn't the place for you. I was on business and the hotel is fine! Great rates, food to be expected in Asia. I love Korean food, I don't know why the restaurant serves bad Italian instead??

The rooms are like any standard hotel in Asia, similar to Japan. Small, a little cosy, with funny wallpaper. I like it though, it's easy and cheap.

Location is perfect for me, the office is just across the road. Great shopping in Apguijong, and amazing food. My faviourite place is down the street that is across the road. It is called "Grande' - amazing food, amazing wine, amazing staff. The street I am talking about is called 'carosu' - it has really great food all over it.

I like Young Dong, the staff are very friendly and the hotel serves its purpose. Free internet is always a +, which it has. Subway stop at the end of the street.

A weird and gloomy place. For $130 per night you get settings of a dormitory, a tiny room, poor breakfast, and shockingly unfriedly staff! The good points are location - 3 min walk to Sinsa metro station, free cable internet in the rooms and a street full of restaraunts of all cuisins of the world nearby

Never will I ever go near this hell hole again. There was nothing good about anything and the breakfast was scary looking.

The room was extremely small and since other traveller's skin remains were stuck in my throat I was up all night.

Never go there.

The airconditioning did not work.
The room stank of smoke.
The staff knew NO English.
The brealfast was putrid.
The hotel is an absolute disaster for a travelling English speaking executive.

I love this hotel. I recently stayed there and found it to be clean and friendly and most importantly the rates were sweet. Remember to book ahead. I stayed there for 8 days for $600. I will definitely stay there again.
