my wife and I choose this hotel because we thought it was near the subway and would be convenient . However , we were wrong , we still had to walk like 15 mins to reach the subway. only good thing is it's budget . Really not for family , more like a motel style for backpackers. The hotel reminds...

Overpriced and ugly rooms. The staff were very kind, bit they couldn't speak English. Stay at a local guest house instead for a better experience. A guesthouse will probably include breakfast too, and be just as clean.

For people who want to get around Korea, this location is very close to the subway. It's a local area with interesting shops and a fish market in the area. Not a lot of tourists. Close to the hotel are very good restaurants, I don't mean 5 star, I mean good local food at a good price. We at at...

My friends and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights (April 2015). The hotel was booked via AirAsiaGo. No problems were encountered during check-in. It's located at a convenient distance from Bomun Station. The staff are nice and accommodating. Our room was the triple room with separate beds. The room was not cramped. We had a cabinet, dresser, tv,...

This is not a fancy type of hotel. So if you wanted a luxury hotel then don't consider this. But overall throughout the 7D6N stay in this hotel I felt quite comfortable. The room was clean and neat but abit old and the room I get is a bit small but just nice for 2 people. The hotel doesn't provide...

Located in a quiet neighborhood, do not expect much action or nightlife from the immediate surroundings. There are a couple of grill restaurants, some small eateries, convenience stores and fruits stall. But that is all. If you don't plan to waste your time in a hotel room, if you want to save money for better food or for shopping, and...

Good Points: - Within 5 minutes walk of the subway on line 6, making it very easy launch point for most of central Seoul. - It had free Wifi, which was not advertised. This was very important to me as I could Skype and FaceTime friends and family back home. - Friendly staff. I checked in at 11:45pm having traveled...

For the price they charge, it is certainly a good bargain for a clean hotel room equipped with basic amenities of a hotel. Staffs were friendly and helpful despite language barriers. The food shop nearby served good Korean food that we even decided to go for a meal before our early morning flight. The food shop (small but delicious) gives...

It's a good choice for budget travel. Not to expect luxurious & grand decoration, rooms are tidy & clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Food shops are nearby. Located close to Bomun subway station, just a 5-min straight way. If you take airport bus (#6002) to the hotel, you'll stop at Sinseol-dong station. Then take a taxi just at its...

“it's really a budget hotel , don't spend too much time in your room. go out for fresh air.”

“I had a room that faced the street. The double-glazing did a good job of cutting out the traffic noise but it meant that the room warmed up in the afternoon sun.”
