I am surprised that the standard is pretty good. Very accesible to train station Dongdaemun History & Culture Park. Airport bus 6001 stops just opposite the hotel. Pretty close by to walk to the shopping malls.

Likes:
- clean room, smells nice
- on time room cleaning service
- fitness centre
- sauna
- adjustable heater in room
- hot water runs fast
- hot and cold water dispenser at lift lobby
- self service (paying) laundry facilities
- hair dryer quite strong

Dislikes:
- TV programmes don't cater to foreigners
- detergent smell along the corridor (from cleaning the carpet floor i guess)
- dry sauna is not hot enough. I sat for 10 minutes and did not perspire (sweat) at all
- fitness centre a bit small
- no sugar provided for tea in the room

I have been staying at a different hotel for my previous trip to Seoul and this is a fresh change. I definitely will return for my next visit to Seoul.

This hotel is very conveniently located between lines 4 and 2 on the Seoul. A few minutes either left or right as you leave the hotel. It is also across the road from the bus stop for the airport limousine bus. The reception staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is simple (as they emphasise) - toast, cereal, coffee, orange juice: but is adequate. If you pay the day before it's 4,400 wan each ($3+). You can't get cheaper anywhere else.The bed is very comfortable. On the downside the room is quite small and had only one chair, but if you use it as purely a base to sleep its fine.

I paid extra for breakfast package but they only start serving breakfast at 7am. (Standard hotel breakfast starts from 6am to 10.30am) I need to leave for the airport at 6.30am.
Satisfied with hotel cleanliness and location.

The hotel room was small but it was neat. It was neat a lot of place. You could easily get the hotel limousine bus from here. There were nearby convenient stores. The furnitures were very modern as well.

Apart from the lack of breakfast options, this hotel was a good one for the price. The rooms were quite small and the bathroom was not separate from the rest of the room (something I haven't seen before). Good place for 3 people to stay.
