3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed only for two nights. It's just a walking distance to a shopping area. Room equipped with mini kitchen for a simple cooking. Three of us share a room comfortably. A 24 hour mini mart available near by for a simple meals. It's a safe area for walking even past midnight .

This was a great location.. we were in the middle of almost everything.. it didn't only got 3 stars because the front desk people seem to be very unfriendly.. they only looked at you when you come up to the desk to ask them something.. otherwise they ignored you completely.. front desk people need to greet people with smiles and make people feel welcomed.

The location of the hotel is a plus and has easy accessibility to the underground rail, the shopping centres, the amazing futuristic Dongdaemum Design Plaza which is so impressive. The staff is adequate but not as warm as compared to the other hotels Ive stayed in on this trip. The rooms are adequate and equipped like for long term stay with microwave, fridge and a few pieces of cutlery. Beds are single size beds and not the super single size. But I will still stay in this place again because its convenient.

The hotel is just walking distance from DPP and dongdaemun market. They only provide one very soft pillow. No complimentary water bottle. Room layout is not nice. No bath tub. Only shampoo and body wash is available. No bidet.

Logistically good and close to Dongdaemun with lots of shopping and foods. Eventhough staying for more than 5 days, they only provide 2 bottles of complimentary water. Room is small and the water pressure is weak and the inconsistence hot water supply. Not much view you can expect but it is a decent hotel.

Pro: Location is very convenient as it is only 3-5mins walk from Dongdaemum history & culture stn & Dongdaemum design plaza. Less then 10 mins walk to Dongdaemum shopping district. Along the street there are at 4 convenience stores, 3-4 block away from the hotel is food alley! Airport limousine bus stop is right in front the hotel. Room is equipped with basic utensils, mini fridge & microwave. Hotel staff is well versed in mandarin. Con: room & toilet is very small. They don't make up bed daily but will clear your dustin daily. Not all taxi drive know where it is. So it best you tell them near DDP. Taxi fare from myeongdong to hotel is Ard 4800-7000w. Overall it is a pleasant stay for a residence apartment just dun expect hotel service.

convenient location ideal for shoppers esp for dongdaemun area (till wee hr and walk back to hotel) and accessible to nearby stations (Myeongdong etc) and to/from airport. taxi from seoul ktx is approx. KRW8,000. lotsa street food/eateries 24hrs/convenience stores around the area. Rooms are small but sufficient for the minimal requirements. staff is friendly and helpful too.

We’re stayed here for 6 nights in November 2015, we got the Twin room with 2 single beds and was staying on the 9th floor. After reading numerous reviews regarding this hotel I wasn't expecting much but to my pleasant surprise the hotel exceeded my expectations and more! The rooms have a desk area with shelves, table and chairs and a compact kitchen area with microwave, mini kettle, cutlery, fridge etc. the bathroom and toilet was on the small size but good enough. Our shower worked fine you might want to test out the temperature for a bit to warm it up but once it was hot enough it stayed hot and worked fine! The hotel provides slippers, towels, shower gel and shampoo, as for toothbrush and paste remember to bring your own! They also had rice tea bags and coffee sachets. We all found this hotel very convenience, just 7 mins walk to the nearest metro station "Dongdeamun History and Culture Park". The airport bus comes just in front of the hotel means our senior travelers no need to carry their bags for a long walk. Subway station is only 5-min walk and is the intersection points of three subway lines. Many shopping malls and restautants nearby with only 10-min walk. Overall the hotel was a pleasant stay, very happy and highly recommend this hotel, I would definitely stay here again!

If you plan to go South Korea for budget with free & easy trip. This is the best hotel for long-stay like 5 days and above, very convenient and great location just nearby the city center, and also tourist attractions included best & famous shopping area like Namdaemun and Myeong-dong market. The rooms are clean & cozy, equipped with full kitchens utensils, micro-waves, minibars and refrigerators. There are couple convenient stores just nearby and downstairs the hotel. Easy for you to pack some instant food to cook in the hotel room.

First, the location was confusing because there is another Western co-op building in front of it and it was embarrassing being told we got the wrong place. The room it self was ok, it was spacious enough and looked clean and tidy. However, I am not a fan of the room layout. There is a big open area for the under-equipped kitchen and two office desks and chairs (no dinning table), but a relatively smaller section (not room) for the double bed and TV which is where most people would spend most of their time... There was no nightstand so it was difficult if you have anything you normally put beside you when you sleep e.g. prescription glasses, a glass of water, watch, etc. there was also no reachable light by the bed so you have stumble in the dark for the light switch on the wall. But the bed was quite comfy and the floor heater was sufficiently warm. The biggest problem I found is the room cleaning service. I distinctively put the sign out saying I need the room cleaned as we spilled a little bit of food on the sheets the first day (no dinning table remember?), but for the THREE nights we were there, they didn't change the sheets once! I know because the same stain remained the entire time we were there. This was pretty disappointing considered everything else was quite good. It is reasonably priced and located conveniently near the many of the popular shopping mall so it warranted an "average" rating. They do provide a safe in the room but it was quite difficult to understand the instructions and get it to operate properly. If you are going to use it, test it out a few times before really putting anything in or you might not be able to get your stuff back out easily.
