      Acess to Incheon Airport is easy”

      Great location: 1)subway station(city Hall Station) is about 5 min walk from the hotel. Subway Line 1 and 2 is connected to most of the attractions in Seoul. 2)The airport bus stop(Bus 6701) is in front of the hotel. Room: The room is spacious , clean but a bit old. Overall is OK.

      Convenient location (less than 5 mins walk to the city hall subway and underpass to myengdong area), big room (family room) with wooden floor, clean (thanks to the cleaner lady, doing great job). The front desk very helpful and friendly, even help us to call and find out information for the place we plan to go. The security guard is a friendly uncle. Overall, satisfy and happy stay.

      Great Location”

      We stayed for a week. Everything was great just that the male receptionists arent too friendly. So we always had to skip our questions and googled instead. Location was definitely a plus point. To those who dont mind walking, this is a great hotel. Near to palaces, near to subway (City Hall), and if you know your way, its easier to walk to Myeong-dong then talking the train. We were greeted by the a friendly hotel concierge ajussi every morning. That ajussi always so smiley and friendly. Maybe the male receptionists should take him as an example. Just saying. :)

      Highly recommendable”

      Our room rate was affordable, but could have been more expensive considering how much we loved our stay in this hotel. Our room had a very nice cozy vibe to it, it smelled fresh and clean the moment we entered it ( some hotel rooms could smell old and musty). We got a window that gave us a beautiful view of the city, and it was always nice to wake up to. The cleaning lady did a great job fixing our room. The hotel staff were very helpful too. Special mention to the doorman who was such a cheerful chap! Probably the only thing that did not amaze us as much was the breakfast buffet spread, but for the price we paid, it should just be average.

      Helpful Staff & 'Lively' Atmosphere”

      My family of 5 stayed in 2 rooms (a twin and a double-single) for 3 nights. We found the hotel a great value. Pros: 1) Friendly & helpful staff. Housekeeping greeted with smiles and quick in service. When we had trouble getting cabs, helpful front desk (I think Mr Yoon Nam Kyu) called a cab using his own phone promptly. He also got his colleague (Mr Yul Kim) to get a 2nd cab for us ( 1 cab 1 app). He even taught us how to use the app (Kakao T) ourselves later. Much thanks gentlemen! 2) Great location of power outlets next to beds, with various universal outlets. Important for visitors with multiple mobile devices. 3) Lively atmosphere due to events at nearby sights. Night market at nearby CGC on Day 1, Framers'market at GHM on Day 2, World Cup Live View at Seoul Plaza/GHM on Day 3. Main Cons: Shower is separated from toilet area with only a small narrow glass panel. As a result, water splashed out and wet floor easily. Perhaps adding shower curtain will improve it slightly?

      Great location”

      It is a simple hotel in that there are no facilities like swimming pool, gym etc. But this hotel was chosen not due to these facilities but it’s location. Less than 300 m to the Gwanghwamun subway station and no more than a 10-15 minute walk to Myeongdong. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was decent. The hotel room was clean. Happy with this choice.

      Good as usual, but one front desk staff issue”

      As usual, I had a good stay at this hotel. My only criticism is a minor one. During check in, when one of the front desk staff saw me walk in, she just rolled her eyes and made what seemed to be snide remark to one of her coworkers. I'm not sure if this behavior was directed towards me directly or something else, but I was somewhat offended by it. Regardless of the circumstances, I found this to be very unprofessional behavior. This was the first time (and hopefully the last) I experienced this sort of rude behavior. I hope that Ms. J. Kim will receive better training to show respect toward hotel guests. I had no problems with other staff members; they were all polite and courteous, especially the doorman, Mr. H. Kim.
