Property seems to be getting old including fixtures and bath tub. Sink was clogged and faucet needs to be replaced as well. Good location and friendly staff. Hope to see some improvements on next visit !

Good location and amenities easy to go hongdae street shopping

Very nice looking, clean. Staff were very friendly. The lighting in the hotel was super dim by design. It looks kind of cool, but it's so dark you can hardly do you hair in the mirror. They have some neat features -- like a little LCD screen that lets you control the lights and set the temperature. But the screen's brightness was way off and it was almost impossible to read.

The hotel was in a great area close to Line 2 so it was easy to get around in Seoul. The room was always clean. I loved how the bathtub was right by the window so you could see the city. The Hongdae Market was only a couple blocks away so shopping and street food was easy to get to. Also there were plenty of cafes around and a 7 eleven across the hotel. The only downfall was the bed was pretty hard.
