affordable and fun stay

great location, affordable, clean
Stay was pleasant. Wifi access is very fast as each room as its own router. Room was a bit small but for the price it was a great stay in one of the most active areas in Seoul.

budget hotel for sleeping

location as it is nearby city center
The room is just of sleep. However, there is no window which made me felt uncomfortable and you can hear noisy from maids all day long. although the room is small, but clean.

Clean and Tidy, All in one compact hotel room

Clean, necessities, location
Not easy to find when taking a cab, even the Korean taxi driver had a hard time. I think it is easier in taking train. But because the location is in the middle of everything, food restaurants, so it is a little hard to find the sign of the logo of Irene hotel. Just look upwards instead of eye view as it is on top of everything else, the signage. Good thing about this hotel is, it is really clean. I am a solo frequent 34yrs old traveller. Particularly about cleanliness above everything else. The room is small where others complaint in e review, but I think for this price it is reasonable. Clean, comfy bed, toilet has a bath tub, clean, no dirt. I like the fact that the room has everything. Hair dryer, Korean mineral fresh water with no fluoride, fridge, Big TV, ladies facial kit including; Toner, moisturizer, hair band, shampoo, shower gel, ear cleaning bud, and a welcome facial kit with a lot of small samples. How nice for such a compact room. You’ve to take note that it maybe a little noisy because it is on top of the many restaurants and night bars. At night you may notice some dodgy men+women but usually harmless bcos there is quite a lot of crowds. People going there for food, tepanyaki. If you don't wear too revealing, like short tiny skirt and half boobs popping out, should be fine. I was back at 10pm at night, and it was fine. Ask a map from the reception, she speaks fair English (not fluent but good enough to call a cab for you and explain a map to you) nearby shopping mall and underground mall just 10mins walking distance. On call a cab from the hotel to Incheon airport cost 70,000korean. It's a bit pricey but quite a distance to the airport. 20mins and the cab driver can speak fluent American English.
