Reviewed August 3, 2012

Is it normal to get a receipt by chekcing out the hotel? For the lady behind the reception desk was not. You have had to discussed with her for a long time to get it. And she was sooooo lazy but she can speak English...
The room is in dark color, and you have to used to the staff who speak rarely foreign languages.

After reading many reviews calling it a "love Hotel" I was a little worried about what it would be like. I was very happy with my stay, the rooms were very nice and clean, nicer then many other non- love hotels I've stayed it in Korea. The Hotel was also very near the subway which made it very easy to get anywhere in the city. I would book at this hotel again.

Nightclubs a plenty and its very busy during the night.

This hotel was a very nice surprise. I had read virtually nothing of the hotel and suspected that it was a love hotel. Though I still think the hotel may double as a love hotel (the hotel gives an amenity package that includes a condom), it's really great for the business traveller. The service is pretty much non-existent in the hotel but the hotel is in Kangnam, about a 5-7 minute walk to Shin Noonhyeon station (Line 9) and about a 7-10 minute to the heart of Kangnam. The room is a little bit dark and the windows are small but the room comes with a jacuzzi and a computer so if you can stomach the idea of the hotel being a possible love hotel, it's great value for money.

Room Tip: Try to find a room that faces the street so you don't get stuck with a window that gives you a v...
