    I stayed in the female only space. It was safe, clean and comfortable. The only downside is that the toilets are outside of the living and sleeping area, unlike the shower stalls that were located inside.

    Room is very clean and located at a convenient location. There is no lack of late night food places as well as shopping places. Housekeeping cleans the room and replace the towels every single day. The downside would be that the room is really small and space is limited. If not, recommend this hotel for short stay and people who don't shop too much.

    Awesome and very strategic location. Very near to Euljiro-1 subway station (with elevator) and not that far from Myeongdong subway station. Surrounded by restaurants, cafes, convenience stores, bars and retail shops. I love the shared pantry with 24-hour coffee machine, ice machine, water dispenser, microwave and kitchenette. Friendly staffs. Will stay again at Calistar Hotel.

Very pleasant stay in family room with kitchen & clean toilet. Spacious room for 3 adults with 1 kid. Very enjoyable for the stay. I will stay in this hotel again once going to Seoul. When I check in, the staff has been confused for how many nights for my stay. The staff is required to check clearly before asking customer. This thing is needed to deduct scores.

    Pros: 1. Located in Myeongdong, steps away from the popular fashion street 2. Near airport limousine bus stop (less than 5 mins walk) 3. Close to restaurants, cafes, 24-hour convenience stores, banks/ATMs, street food vendors, Lotte Dept Store (shopping mall with cinema theaters) & subway station 4. Good room facilities - attached bathroom with hot shower, shampoo, conditioner & bath gel, hair dryer, electric kettle, ceiling aircon & flat screen HD TV 5. Hotel employees speak basic English Cons: 1. Room size is very small, no space to leave suitcase opened 2. No carpeted flooring - could be freezing in winter 3. Couldn't find heater function anywhere in the room 4. Aircon remote control in Korean - didn't understand the functions clearly & if heater is included or not 5. Hotel employees are not Korean. They are Chinese (China) & less friendly.

    Clean but rooms were small and corridors smelly”

    Location was good and overall room was clean. But the room was exceptionally small. Located on the third floor of a mall/restaurant/housing complex, the moment we stepped out of the hotel area was smell of food, in particular bbq smell, which can get quite awful. Breakfast was simple, timing was shorter than expected, from 8-10am. For those who are gg for tours that may require meet ups at 8am or before, would need to prepare their own breakfast. Rooms were also not sound proof, so we could hear the neighbours whenever they walk by the corridor. Location was good, a few minutes walk from the subway and the airport limousine bus. Overall a pleasant stay.

    This place is always booked. I booked a month and a half in advance. I was returning from vacation whe my flight suffered a major delay. I called to coordinate after hours arrival and they accommodated. We arrived to the hotel by 2am and made our way our room. My only complaint is: I booked and paid upfront for a double bed and what I got: twin beds. That is poor service to change a room that's been paid for well in advance just because of late arrival. I emailed days before about the after hour arrival and called on the day of. I will make sure to make mention of this should I ever arrive after hours. Regardless, everything else is favorable.

    I took a shared room with one more person. The main concern was the public bathroom (small and in a bad shape) - it is in the hallway of the building floor outside of hotel facilities accessible to anyone who visits other businesses on the floor. Besides that, the room was tiny, there were no towels provided.
