This small hotel is relatively new. Although it has many good aspects, a few wrinkles remain to be ironed out.
First, the good things: The place is very close to the Gimhae airport (near exit 5 of the Sasang light rail station --- three stops from the airport), and it is comparatively inexpensive. The man who greeted us spoke good English and was very friendly and helpful. The room had all the usual amenities, plus a few more (e.g., a computer, hair gel and spray, and a larger-than-life Eric Clapton staring down from the wall). Restaurants are plentiful in the area.
Despite having a map, we had a hard time finding the place. It was indeed near exit 5 --- but, on alighting from the light rail train from the airport, we couldn't find that exit! We later learned that the exit is located in the area of subway line 2, which also serves the Sasang station, rather than the light rail. With that knowledge, returning to the airport was simple and took less than half an hour.
Although the room was adequately large and had everything that we needed, some aspects of it --- and the general situation --- seemed a bit odd. We arrived after dark and, despite the motion-sensitive light that turned on briefly right inside the door, we couldn't find the light switches. After several minutes of searching (and repeatedly returning to the entrance to trigger the motion sensor), we located them, all together, halfway across the room from the door. No one was at the front desk when we checked out early the next morning, and we didn't know what to do with the room key. An open box in the elevator marked "room keys" seemed to be the solution.)
Our arrival just at the end of the helpful man's shift didn't help the situation. More explanation could have alleviated some of our problems, but by the time we knew we needed help, he had departed. The woman who replaced him didn't speak English, and we don't speak Korean, so communication was limited.
