Alpha Guest House is conveniently located in Seoul's prime location Sinchon, which is near the youth-friendly shopping area of Hongik University, Yonsei University, and Sogan University and is located in the center of Seoul's transportation hub. It is perfect for tourists who want close access to all the famous tourist spots in Seoul. Good language service will be provided English and Japanese. There is a major shopping mall near and convenience stores, restaurants, caf, bar, and fast food chains galore. Next to the quiet and clean Alpha Guesthouse is the historically famous Manduksa Temple where you can enjoy the spirit of old Seoul and experience Buddhist rituals.

Wouldn't Know- Was Overbooked and not Guaranteed

Arrived at hotel around 5PM. Check in time was 1:00. Upon arrival was informed that the room was overbooked. The owner then said I could check in at 10PM because cleaning. However, it became apparent that I was being re-accomidated at a love motel nearby. While, I did appreciate having a place to sleep that night I was highly disappointed with the late check in time. I contacted this travel site about the unavailability of the room and they were unwilling to offer a refund of any amount for the overbooked room (because the hotel wasn't willing to refund). This travel site claimed itself as only a 3rd party travel site, and not responsible for guaranteeing the rooms sold. Can't recommend the hotel or this travel site for that matter.

My Seoul trip

The hotel was actually a guest house. I slept in a bunk bed. I had as much as 5 roomates in a room. I had to walk several blocks to do my laundry, which included a washer and a dryer. In mass transit, the subway system was good, but notthe buses. If I took the bus to certain locations in Seoul, I would've been lost.
