Great location

Great location, friendly staff & staff able to speak fluent Chinese or English
WS Hotel doesn't has a web site but their staffs are able to reply email almost immediately. it's located in a backlane. so it's a must to read the location map carefully that they provide before you go. room and bathroom are small. the worse thing is that there was some bad smell from the sewage in the bathroom.

Great location, friendly staff, but small rooms

Good location (close to subway, restaurants, nightlight), clean, affordable
the staff are very friendly and will help you find restaurants, nightlife, and sightseeing options in the area. the rooms are small, but clean. the tv is large (especially for the size of the room) and tons of english channels. there is not much of a lobby to hang out in, but it is a great hotel if your in the area for a night.

It was fine for backpackers

Location and price
The location of the hotel is quite difficult to find if the admin of the hotel didn't give a full direction to the hotel. Thanks to him and he can speak english. The hotel is just next to the sinchon station and all the shops. It was just fine if u didn't bring a heavy luggage since there are no elevator and narrow corridor space. The rooms are quite small for 3 of us but it was clean and comfortable.

Good service but poor room condition

Excellent service
The hotel provide excellent service but the room condition is so bad. We booked for a deluxe room but the room given doesn't look like a deluxe room. It was too noisy and we could't sleep well at all. We can even hear the water sound from upstair whenever someone took a shower. It's quite dissapointed and we learned not to trust the reviews given in the future. However, i truly appreciate the excellent service and they allowed me to extend my chevk iut time to 1pm.

Decent Budget hotel

Close to Subway, decent budget hotel
We checked into the deluxe double room at 1st floor and the room size is slightly bigger compared to the standard room. There's enough room to walk about at least after putting our luggages. Room is well equipped with TV, hair dryer and kettle. Bed is comfortable. The in-room floor heating system is inadequate during winter. As such, we felt very cold in the room. Fortunately, we were given a portable heater upon request. There's an unpleasant smell coming out from the toilet's drainage. We lodge a complaint and they duly cover up with a rubber mat on top. Didn't fully solved the problem but the situation has somewhat improved. The cold water from the tap stop flowing on our last day of stay and we made a complaint. The staff who attended to the issue wasn't too friendly as he just told us off See, there are water, when in actual fact the water only came from the hot water tap. Found out that the whole place was affected due to frozen piping. Not sure how long they took to address the issue as we had checked out thereafter. Generally, staff are attentive to our requests and friendly. A guy of the name Win (if not mistaken) is worthy of special mention though, as he is very patient with our requests and gave us good advice around the place. In another budget hotel (in Myeongdong) that we stayed, there were free VOIP facility where we could make international fixed line calls for free! Wish WS hotel have this feature as well.
Hotel Feature Tip: Subway is just 3 min walk away, so is very convenient. There are couple of Korean restaurants right next to the hotel, and a grocery store along the main road. The shuttle bus stop where we took from the airport is right in front of the grocery store, so it's just a short walk to the hotel. To return to the airport, we found out that it's much cheaper (about KWon4k) to travel by subway and is convenient. Subways have built-in elevators so you can move your luggages easily. However, take note that not all subways have elevators. Sinchon subway is connected underground to a shopping center as well.
