            Old hotel with bad lighting for room except for toiletThis hotel for my booked room, the bedsheets is not clean as there's alot of stains and that the room is too antique with the lighting, as you have to press buttons to on aircon and lighting but despite switching on the aircon, i hardly felt any aircon at all, have to switch on the fan, i seriously think that this hotel needs a big upgrade to the rooms, lift and everything... don't recommend any Japanese tourists nor clean freaks or germ-phobic people to stay in the hotel as you will have nightmares and will want to check out immediately! somewhat have the feeling on hidden camera in the room and toilet but then it's just a feeling, i never check it out as i only stayed for a short night only before transferring to another hotel. However the staff of the hotel is really very nice and helpful, just too bad on the facilities and the location which is hard to get a cab nearby to go somewhere else, but hotel is situated between 2 subway station of 5-10min walk away for a female traveller

            It meets the most basic needs.”

            Location is very convenient with access to at least 4 subway stations and shopping areas within a 15 minute walk. The exterior of the building is that of chipped off paints, semi-functioning lighted signs, and dirty windows (exterior side). I opted for for the deluxe double room. The lobby, is the most decent part of the facility. The elevator smells as that of inexpensive car fresheners, with peeling decor. The hallways comes second to the lobby as looking decent. Now to describe the room. Air conditioning is central air that does not function as it should. Ceiling wallpaper(?) ripped and stapled. Vents dirty. Window screen ripped. Closet carpet ripped. Bathroom contains mold along various corners and bathroom vent full of dust. No ceiling light, only 3 wall lights that are very flimsy. In conclusion, don't trust the photos as some are edited. Maybe those photos of the rooms are of the more expensive ones? I stayed for two nights. Lesson learned.

            From the reception to the room, everyone will tell u that it's a basic hotel. If you are just looking at having a place to rest at night, this should satisfy your needs. Especially when u plan to shop into weee hours in the morning, this hotel is within reasonable walking distance.

            this hotel is located near the subway line 1,3 and 5. really convenient for travelling around and shopping. even not by subway, you can get easy access to meodong dong and east gate market by walk. it seems to me that the hotel has been newly decorated because it's really new and clean, not like some people said before.

            The staffs provided a excellent service

            The location of the hotel is very good, near the subway Line 1 and Line 2 with 5 mins walk from the subway station. It is very easy to take the subway to go to any places. Nearby the hotel only have 7-eleven, but no need to worry about if you hungry at the midnight, because have some local food shop near the hotel, the taste are not bad.
