Our room was not too big, considering there were three of us sharing. But it was clean and quiet. Large flat screen were a plus. One time the hot water in the bathroom wasn't running, so I asked the receptionist. He then showed me (in understandable English) how to fiddle with the automatic control panel (similar to ours) to turn...

Generally the hotel is a welcome alternative to a downtown hotel. Not much going on in the perimeters but there is a subway entrance nearby. The breakfast is just average .... If you want the same menu served for the next five days. The location and ambience of the hotel are also good if you are part of a Group...

This hotel is really accessible, it is near two metro station. It is clean and has little and nice kitchen, good beds, big bathroom. Unfortunately the breakfast is not good. Don't forget it's a residence so you might have less service than in a hotel. Good value for money.

Although the location is not really near the city center, it's still convenient and safe. It take 1.5 subway hours from Inchon airport to the residence and probably 20 mins from residence to Doonta area. Good English speaking staff and comfortable room with large space to put all luggage and shoes once you go shopping a lot. The room is...

I have to say the room is very clean, equipped with a proper kitchen and walk-in wardrobe, similar concept to a studio apartment. There is a washing machine available but everything was in Korean so you would need help to operate it. Did not have their breakfast so I can't comment on that however we did try to have coffee...

This apartment/Residence is quite new so taxi drivers may not be familiar with it. Be sure to take their hotel business card with you! Good location for us as its not sat in the middle of busy streets, you will appreciate the location once you hit Myeongdong shopping! Very easy to find if travelling on the Underground, 7mins walk from...

Location - A bit far from the city, nearest subway station - Dapsimni or Sindap (both abt 5mins walk) and around 20mins to Dongdaemun / Myeondong area for night market. No other notable building around the vicinity. It's more like a residential suburb to me. Apartment condition - Very new, considered fully furnished as it comes with kitchen and washing...
