Picked this hotel on its proximity and cost. Arrived later than I thought I would but the staff was very cordial and helpful. Room was excellent. Bed was a bit more firm than I like but I slept well. Would have liked some explanation of facilities and room controls, nothing in english. Though the remote was easy...of course. Thanks

Bang for your buck

This hotel was tucked in a corner a stone's throw from the Gimpo airport, costing only 4000 won (roughly 4 $) for a taxi ride. The room was exceptionally clean and had really nice installations (tv, computers, bath) for such relatively cheap hotel. The staff at the desk was very nice. Overall, it was well worth the money and I will definitely stay there again given the chance.

Do your homework first before you book.

Hotel was terrible. I would never recommend this to any folks looking to travel to Seoul. You all told me I would have two breakfast included and that did not happen. The hotel is in the middle of nothing! Subway was 20 minutes walking in the cold. I am so glad I took just two days there. I will never use [...]to book hotels, I will do it all myself.

Such a cute place!!

I can not say enough about this place. I walked in expecting a run- down cheap place (since this was one of the cheaper hotels in Seoul) but I was pleasantly surprised. I stayed on the 7th floor (each floor has a unique theme). It was the cutest ever. I had a nice and cozy country-style room with a huge King sized bed, a large mounted flat-screen t.v., and 2 computers. The only issue is that it is a bit far from central seoul (about a 45 min travel time) but it is close o the metro, so it is convenient. The room also had a nice surround-sound stereo system and a TV in he bathroom! I would definitely recommend staying here and I would definitely come back again. The hotel personnel are also super helpful and helped us book trips to the DMZ zone, as well as giving us directions to the antique markets and nightlife hot-spots.

Try the street food at the might markets and the HOFs (foreigner friendly beer/soju places). Don't waste your time on any western food...you're in Seoul afterall!
