Family with young children
Double Bed Room with Private Bathroom
Stayed 7 nights in February 2017
Value for money”
Pros - value for money. Location just next to hyehwa station (1 min walk). Hyehwa station is 1 station away from dongdaemun and nearest attraction is ihwa mural village. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Free coffee, tea, bread, jam, and instant noodle available all day, not only during breakfast time. There is washing machine available but no dryer. Heater warm enough for comfortable stay Cons - room quite small

A nice place”
Modern and safe guesthouse. Small room without window but OK if you don't plan to stay there all the time. Seems like the owner wasn't speaking English. Cleaning lady was very nice. Breakfast was simple but nice. Would recommend to small budgets.

Sam from Malaysia
Couple
Double Bed Room with Private Bathroom
Stayed 5 nights in January 2017
Strategic location but extremely small room”
Pros: 1.location, walk distance to hyehwa station Cons: 1. Extremely small, other than bed , you don't really have much space in room 2. Water heater is not functioning very well. The heat level is not consistent and it goes extremely cold and extremely hot when you're bathing, which it's very not comfortable especially during winter. 3. We experienced black out during our stay but fortunately they fixed it within 1 hour. 4. Their staff can't really speak English but they did tried to communicate ... 5. Limited breakfast although it's ald included in packaged, perhaps it's free ?, it's only bread jam and coffee... Recommendation 1. Fixes the water heater 2. allocate someone who know basic English to handle customer 3. Prepare better breakfast even if you charge extra Conclusion: if you're looking for a budget place to sleep only, it's worth it as the location is convenience and price is ok; but if you're looking for more comfort stay, I would say "no".

Close to Metro, nice staff, warm b-fast, neat room”
The manager was nice, attentive and spoke good English. The room was neat, tidy and clean with fast free wifi. The breakfast brought you warmness in the morning.
My family stayed in the guesthouse for 3 nights from May 26 to May 29 2014. Check-in was fast and the female manager was pretty, nice and friendly and spoke good English. The air-conditioned room although small as expected, had everything in: 3 comfortable beds, a shower room with shower soap, shampoo and conditioner, a good TV, space for hanging clothes, tables, a small refrigerator, water-heater, hair-dryer, electric plugs. Every morning the hotel provided basic breakfast incl. orange juice, coffee, toast, butter and jam. It also had a large refrigerator if you need to freeze more stuff. The hotel is near the Hyehwa Metro station (2 min. walk) which is only 1 station away from Dongdaemun station (shopping, sightseeing location with numerous restaurants). There are also a lot of restaurants and shopping malls near the area (Daehakro) without the need to take a taxi or metro.
