This hotel is close to 3 train lines, which makes things convenient when travelling to different places. The breakfast was great, hotel staff service was excellent. The cons to this hotel were that the room was a little small, and you need to walk though small roads to get there (then again Korea is quite safe). Overall, really pleased with this hotel and would stay there again!

You can't beat the location of the hotel. Just steps from the hotel are many restaurants and the subway. Breakfast is excellent also. English speaking front-desk staff is friendly.

Not much down side, except that room is small. But not too small.

Had two nights here recently, the hotel is very central and near airport bus 6002 stop/ drop off point (look at photos posted of the ally way to reach the hotel entrance). It is very much a budget hotel, very clean functional rooms, basic service - no bar etc, but plenty of places to eat and drink near. I did notice stains on the carpets and wallpaper in my room (508) coming off the wall. You get what you pay for - basic and clean.

The hotel is in a central location.. walkable distance to the subway (Jongno 3 ga).
Rooms are clean, staff are friendly.
One thing to note - the taxi driver might not be able to find it - be sure to print out the hotel address in Korean

The hotel is located in a nondescript lane, though very close to Jongno gu (3) metro station (orange line). Given our luggage, we hired a taxi to get there and having the address written in Korean helped. The earlier reviews about the difficulty in locating the place otherwise holds good.

The rooms are small, but cosy and comfortable for solo travellers, with city view on all sides. It came with a writing table, luggage rack and few hangers, but no cupboard. My bathroom had a tub. The rooms were clean, non-smoking and the temperature maintained at comfortable levels. The internet connection in the room was poor.

The breakfast was included in the room tariff and the place has a decent spread for breakfast, including fruits, fruit juice, cereals, bread & eggs, sausages and croissants in addition to Korean fare. However, when I asked for some warm milk, I was told that it was not possible apparently because they did no have a microwave. But in a short while, she was willing to warm our coffee!! That is the first hotel that has refused me warm milk at breakfast. It appears that their microwave warm is lactose-intolerant!

The basement had a laundry room, which can be operated with Won 1500 each for washing and drying. The reception would give the change, if needed. I appreciated the laundry facility in the hotel given that I was travelling with too many soiled clothes and getting it dry cleaned was not feasible within the limited time we had on hand. The laundry room also had ironing facility.

The hotel is within walking distance from Insadong (7 minutes), Changdeokgung Palace (15minutes) and Bukchon Hanok village (25 minutes). It also has several branded shops, a park and a police station on the main street nearby. In the evenings, the street to the hotel is lined with food carts, selling cooked food. While we did not taste any, they did look appetising. The Airport Express has a stop outside Mc Donald's on Jongna gu main street. It plies every 15 minutes or so and takes 15000 Won and nearly an hour (in off-peak traffic) to get to Incheon International airport.

The staff at the hotel reception were by and large helpful. They understood English and tried to help us with our daily tourist plans in their broken English. However, they were very rigid regarding their check out policy. We had late evening flights out of the city, and one of us had over 20 hours of flight travel ahead of us. We would have liked to shower after a day out in the city and before boarding our flights. We requested a 2 hour extension of one room, between two of us, which was refused flatly.

In brief, I found the place convenient particularly for tourists- solo travellers and friends, not families. The services, except the internet connection, were good for its modest price of around USD 90. But the rigidity of policies, particularly with regard to check-out time, left a bad taste in our mouths in the last minutes of our stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with good internet connection.
