Our stay was in a perfect location. A place where a tourist want to be at in the heart of Seoul, near to subway stations, shopping areas, and convenience stores, and at a reasonable price.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
My family booked six rooms total on five reservations. The hotel never responded to any of the three separate emails we sent in the weeks prior to arrival asking for our rooms to be close together, which resulted in us being on four different floors. Additionally, several of us had to switch rooms multiple times due to the conditions of the rooms (moldy and musty smells, uncomfortable mattresses, inability to control temperature with temperatures getting up to 82 degrees F due to the air conditioning being turned off every day from about 3am to 8am). While the staff were very nice, the cleaning crew definitely did not vacuum our rooms and they often forgot to replace our toilet paper and empty our trash can. On the plus side, the location can't be beat, with plenty of transportation, food, and shopping options.

Do NOT stay here…especially during the summer. We did not realize that you don’t have control of the thermostat in the room. For whatever reason they seem to turn of the AC in the early hours of the morning. Therefore, when we were getting ready in the mornings, the room temperature was 82 degrees F!! We had to ask for a fan as well as request a room change because of the unbearable room temperature. Once we were moved, it did get a little better but we still had to use the fan every night. The main positive of the hotel is its location.

Room is way too hot. They say that it’s centrally controlled but they control it to 26-27 degrees at night. You can’t even sleep comfortably. Please find a different hotel as the rooms are hot especially if you are in Seoul during summertime.

It is at a very convenient shopping location. Staff are very polite and helpful. Most of them speak english. Special mention to a front desk staff, named Sam. Very helpful to guide us through the complex subway system and was also helpful in accomodating us in our needs.

전반적으로 편안한 호텔^^
주차비가 넘 비싼 거 말고는 서비스도 좋고 위치도 시내라 지내는데 편리했어요. 투숙객에게 주차비는 안받았으면 합니다.
