Ribera (Riviera)

This hotel is great. It was clean, wifi, club downstairs, what more can you want? From the airport you can get on the bus that will drop you off right in front of the hotel. Pay attention though, they pronounce it "Ribera" so I didn't get off in time.

See you again~

My trip was a short, weekend trip. I spent only one night at the hotel, but it was just what I wanted. Lovely room, big bed and it all felt very comfortable. I checked in, put my bags in my room and left to explore. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was quite a variety of guests staying at the hotel and it was fun talking with them. My previous trips to Seoul were spent in a hostel or jjimjilbang. I'm pretty sure I will be staying at this hotel again.
