            Pros and Cons”

            This isn't the main area in Seoul but it's close to the subway station. It's only a few stops away from myungdong and dongdaemun which is one of the busier attractions. Def book through Agoda because it's much cheaper than booking at the hotel in person. I asked the reception and they do not do global tax refund which is a shame. Building looks new so cleanliness is not an issue. No laundry service even nearby.

            Perfect location for Seongbuk, Hyehwa(Daehakro) and even Bukchon area with car parking for biz travellers. Modern design by maple wood and white with a toss of industrial interior in a slender red brick outshell. Very decent bed and amenities with a mug of americano at lobby. Some Pork rib BBQ and Napoleon bakery are in walking distance.

            Loved the room, open concept, slick industrial design with everything you need to be comfortable. No breakfast but a selection of drinks available. Open 24 hours. Staff very nice but also limited English ability. Close to the subway, bus stop directly out front, surrounded by good local restaurants. By day two it felt like home

            Great Location and Surroundings”

            Located near the Sungshin Women's University station, the hotel is also on the Blue Line so Dongdaemun station was only a few stops away which made it easy to transfer to other subway lines. It's an easy walk to part of the river/canal and Naksan park. The area is near a university so just behind the hotel, there were trendy shops and restaurants catered to the locals and not too touristy! Room was large and bright, and comfortable.

            Das Hotelzimmer an sich war total in Ordnung, auch wenn es leicht nach Zigarettenrauch roch. Das Hotel ist fußläufig an einer Metrostation gelegen. Von dort konnte man viele Sehenswürdigkeiten im Norden und im Herzen von Seoul gut und schnell erreichen. In der Hotelgegend selbst gab es viele gute Restaurants und nette Cafes. Das Frühstück, falls man es als solches deklarieren kann, war wirklich schlecht (kein Obst, kein Aufschnitt, keine Teller, kein Besteck etc.). Hervorzuheben ist in diesem Fall wohl die Kaffeemaschine. Auch wird ein Restaurant auf derHotelseite, im Fahrstuhl und in ihrer eigenen Werbebroschüre angepriesen, welches jedoch geschlossen hatte. Ein Safe und ein Schränkchen im Zimmer wäre im Übrigen ganz nett gewesen.

            Perfect location for Seongbuk, Hyehwa(Daehakro) and even Bukchon area with car parking for biz travellers. Modern design by maple wood and white with a toss of industrial interior in a slender red brick outshell. Very decent bed and amenities with a mug of americano at lobby. Some Pork rib BBQ and Napoleon bakery are in walking distance.

            Loved the room, open concept, slick industrial design with everything you need to be comfortable. No breakfast but a selection of drinks available. Open 24 hours. Staff very nice but also limited English ability. Close to the subway, bus stop directly out front, surrounded by good local restaurants. By day two it felt like home

            Great Location and Surroundings”

            Located near the Sungshin Women's University station, the hotel is also on the Blue Line so Dongdaemun station was only a few stops away which made it easy to transfer to other subway lines. It's an easy walk to part of the river/canal and Naksan park. The area is near a university so just behind the hotel, there were trendy shops and restaurants catered to the locals and not too touristy! Room was large and bright, and comfortable.

            Room is small but clean. If the ceiling can be covered then it would be nicer. There's a market just about 100m away from hotel, street food and korean food are available til late. Many cosmetic stores as well.

            Das Hotelzimmer an sich war total in Ordnung, auch wenn es leicht nach Zigarettenrauch roch. Das Hotel ist fußläufig an einer Metrostation gelegen. Von dort konnte man viele Sehenswürdigkeiten im Norden und im Herzen von Seoul gut und schnell erreichen. In der Hotelgegend selbst gab es viele gute Restaurants und nette Cafes. Das Frühstück, falls man es als solches deklarieren kann, war wirklich schlecht (kein Obst, kein Aufschnitt, keine Teller, kein Besteck etc.). Hervorzuheben ist in diesem Fall wohl die Kaffeemaschine. Auch wird ein Restaurant auf derHotelseite, im Fahrstuhl und in ihrer eigenen Werbebroschüre angepriesen, welches jedoch geschlossen hatte. Ein Safe und ein Schränkchen im Zimmer wäre im Übrigen ganz nett gewesen.
