Reviewed December 26, 2011

This hotel looks great in the pictures and first impressions are excellent. However, when you look a little closer and are there in person things are not what they first seemed. Our room was about 30C when we arrived. I immediately set the termostat down thinking "no problem". This had no effect so when we went out for dinner we said it to the front desk. Arrived back to no change in temp. My wife went back down and told them, but was told that the AC unit was working so just put that on, and was then ignored. We put the AC on and that blasted part of the room with cool air while the heat remained on. Needless to say I didn't sleep that night with the droning and lights from the AC and the dryness of the air. The other issue is the bathroom, which was large but was a little grimey. Also it had a Jacuzzi-style tub that didn't line up with the low shower head so I had to bend down and lean out to get under it! Not relaxing, not pleasant. We left the next morning and won't be back. Shame as the room was nice if the utilities could have functioned.

Room Tip: Check before you commit as you may not sleep that night.

Read a lot of reviews about this hotel on other site... nothing but good things to say. I would avoid this hotel even though the cost is decent. They have large rooms, good internet and TV... however the room has one tiny window blocked by a fire escape, beds are hard and sheets uncomfortable, and the bathroom is moldy, with no water pressure.

It is a do-able place for a few nights, but our friends stayed up the street for $10 dollars in a much nicer location. I recommend to avoid.

This hotel is about 20 mins from central and quite easy to find.
Janghanpyeong station on purple line 5. The station has escalators to get you out and you just need to follow signs to exit 3. just before there is a short flight of stairs to walk up and the exit has an escalator to get you to street level. once outside you walk straight and 10 paces later you take the road on the right. the hotel is on this road.
You walk past many restaurants where you can decide what to eat after you check in. cross over the cross road walking on the right side and you will come to a coffee shop.
Nobless is just there past meridian a sister company.
This road is paralell to the main road behind you as you come out the station.
This hotel is very convienient and has supermarkets there all open till late.

i stayed here for a week and the first room which was lovely.
Has a round bed, jacuzzi which is clean and works, separate shower and steam facility
:-)
The bed room was quite big and even has a sofa area and tea table.
to the side you have a hot and cold water dispenser on tap which is a bit noisy when sleeping and a massive tv.
you also have a long desk with a fridge and a computer with free internet access.
There is no cupboard but there is space to hang your things and a hidden window :-)

Well my first room had no internet access and the toilet was blocked which didnt feel good considering i needed the internet to find information about my site seeing.
THe next day i went to complain to the reception and they offered me a different room straight away as the technicians were not working on the weekends.
The next room had a strong smell of smoke and it was a different layout from my previous room.
It was a family room with one double and one single bed with normal bath facilities.
i said i didnt want it mainly as the smell was too much.
They immediately said they will change again but i went from the 7th floor to the 1st floor.
Everything was the same as the original room and was also clean and not faulty.
i stayed on the 1st floor for the rest of the stay.
because you have 2 front doors the noise outside was not a problem .
only noise you will hear is if someone flushes the toilet or uses the jacuzzi but that is only for a short time.

Staff i would say are brilliant considering they speak minimal English and i cant complain as i spoke zero Korea. My bad.
Even though i was frustrated the staff still kept being helpful and friendly.

I find this culture is every where in korea.
I recommend Korea to everyone purely for the fact they are one of the friendliest people on earth.

Oh. forgot to mention that there is no food in this hotel. but there is no need to worry as the street is full of food and they even have a cafe just downstairs with friendly staff.
you get discount here too.
they also have wifi and computers in this cafe so you can chill out in there
If you have a travel card, you will get discount nearly everywhere.

Room Tip: i looked on asiaweb and asia rooms. and hotel

Upon entering her hotel, i was disappointed to see it was a complete mess. It's under going some renovations to the reception area. It's very dusty and noisy as the jack hammer starts going at 8.30 am.

The check-in was quick and simple, staff has limited English so communication can be difficult. The Double Deluxe room we booked had a double and a single bed in it. Everything inside was either old or dirty or both. The bedspread was very old and the towels were tatty and dicolored. There is no closet to hang your clothes, the room was the most run down i have ever seen.

Around the hotel there are lots of restaurants and a few convenient stores and that about it. The location is quite out of the way so you will need to catch the subway if you want to shop or sightsee. There are many many stairs in all the suway stations in Seoul, so travelling with a toddler in a pram like us or the elderly/infirm can be difficult and tiring.

For the money i don't think the hotel is worth it. It's more like a very low budget hostel.
