  • Liked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great value for money.

The room was minimally cleaned everyday. There were no toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, soap and lotion. They charge 1,000 won for toothbrush. They only provide 2 bottles of water upon check in and you must refill it as needed from the water dispenser in their cafeteria. I stayed for 5 days, and the bottle got old of course. The free breakfast only consisted of toast, coffee, juice and corn flake cereal. Nothing else. There was a microwave oven in the cafeteria if you will reheat outside food that you brought. The bathroom was spacious though, with bath tub and shower. The bath towels are not the full size. They only provided 3 pcs of mini towels. The tissue supply was ample though.The room was comfortable, the air condition unit works well. The TV has cable and the wifi signal is strong and fast. The location is great! Very near Jongno-3 Station and there are many affordable restaurants in the area. The restaurants also has a great variety from Korean, Thai, Japanese to the convenience stores and cafe/bars. You can also walk to Insadong and Bukchon Hanok Village from here. There is no airport bus within walking distance. Since we had a lot of luggage, we had to take a taxi to the nearest Airport Bus Stop costing us 6000won.

A disappointing stay

Our stay here was very ordinary. The staff weren't very friendly or that helpful. They were very stingy in providing home comforts and there was no one at reception when we checked out despite waiting for over 30 minutes. The only redeeming feature was the various cultural sights in the area. We have been to hostels which were so much better than this.


Real is not like on pictures

Hotel is not so good, room was clean but seems old and need to be renewal. But staff was very pleaseful and helped us when we asked.

Pros: Close to the center of Seoul and main sightseen spots.
