For those of you westerners not experienced traveling in Japan or other compact Asian coutries...be prepared for a size shock. The room is very tiny but manages to fit in an LCD monitor, desk, fridge, sink, hot top, and bed.
Be warned: The bathroom is Korean style and thus the shower is in the bathroom space with the toilet and sink. So you will have to step around the toilet while you shower. (and if you are compulsive reader like me...dont leave the newspaper in the bathroom on accident when you shower).
However, if you cant afford the Intercon (and who can these days?) then this is an alternative with the same great access. Staff speaks passable english and really tries to help.
Pros: LOCATION IS FAB, Free Internet, cheap dry cleaning service (for korea)
Cons: Breakfast is a joke (spoiled fruit and warm milk...just avoid), small rooms, the occasional Filipino hooker as a neighbor.
Bottom line: if you want to see Seoul on a budget and cant stand the idea of staying in a "Love Motel" then this place could be for you. If you have an event at the coex and the company slashed the travel budget, check it out.
