There is also cooking facility (and fridge) in the room. Bath towels are available. Checking in / out was convenient. Very near N Seoul Tower, you can walk to...

Stayed for 4 nights from Oct 28 to Nov 1 on the ground floor. Clean room and toilet. There is even a pole and hangers to hang your clothes in the room. There's a slight slope up to the guesthouse but it's not much of a problem. There are convenient stores and the famous two two chicken along the way....

I stayed with them 2 times. First time in Dec 2010 and service was good and they are accommodating, we can genuinely feel the owner's passion for the business.

When my daughter booked this guesthouse, I was quite worried because of some negative reviews I read. The operative word here is "guesthouse", not a full service hotel.
