    The hotel is very easy to locate from Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station exit 5. Some of the staff at reception counter can speak English. The environment is quite and clean, The rooms are simple and clean and their is room service everyday if you don't need the room service you need to put the "don't disturb" sign.

    Hotel facilities were amazing, great location and staff could help to receive my postage package and hand it to me on check in. The only thing was that the doorknob of my toilet was spoiled and the bathtub plug was missing, just tiny maintenance issues. but overall it is a beautiful hotel to stay in with a great location close to Dongdaemun station

    Bad front desk staff”

    I used to stay here before like 5 years ago. So this time I visited Korea, I choose this place again because of good location. But the bad thing is women staff at hotel ( who work on early morning 7am. / May 3,2019 ). She is not friendly and having a service mind at all. I arrived at hotel for a bag drop and then I asked her for using a toilet, she said " Only toilet available in the room" as I have been here before I know that the toilet located on 2nd fl. Moreover, on the date I depart from hotel, I asked her for taxi info and then she booked a ride for us. She said it's 11'000 krw each for a group of 4 but it's end up that we have to pay 110,000 krw.

    bad service, decent location”

    Cons: - Service from front staff is really bad ... no greetings not reli helpful - shower/bath tub with no curtain so after one shower the whole bathroom is flooded and really slippery - towels are extremely out dated and definitely not clean - there are many hotels with the same name in which the taxi driver always gets confuses. And this hotel is not listed in google map! we went to a compete different hotel on our first night. Pros: - good locations - many local restaurant in surroundings - close to many wholesale shopping centres - pretty quiet despite it is next to the main road - there's 7/11 right next to the hotel

    Cutest hotel ever”

    This hotel is one of the cutest hotels I've ever been too. Although it has no gym or swimming pool or facilities like that, the room is very cute. Each room has its own unique interior design and you get to choose your room at check-in. They also have a cafeteria on the second floor that is also a lounge. The hotel across the street from one of the exits for Dongdaemun History and Culture Park station and is conveniently located on 3 different lines. It is a great location for shopping and there are many great restaurants nearby as well. The staff was extremely helpful, I realized my A/C was not working and they immediate switched me to another room. Also, they let me use the lounge after checking out. Will definitely stay again.

    Great choice for all the shopaholics”

    Great Location. Spacious twin room. Good value.

    Location is great for those who love shopping. Shopping malls just around the corner where you can drop off your stuffs immediately. 10mins walk from station. Lobby is nice and staffs are friendly. A bit disappointed with the interior of the given room as all the pictures I saw show the funky design but our room is pretty standard. Our bathroom is very badly designed where water will flood the floor when you take a shower. The cleaning lady didn't do a very good job of tidying up. Only changed the used towels and shampoos dirty areas are untouched.

    Convenient location, poor quality of staff and cleanliness”

    -We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights, and found that the staff responsible for cleaning the room frequently omitted the replacement of all items in the room. Eg, the toilet paper in the toilet was totally used up but the staff forgot to replace it. I need to go outside the toilet to get the spare toilet roll. He/she also did not replace the instant coffee that I drunk and the shampoo and conditioner one day. Also, there's no hanger in the toilet to hang the towers. As a result, the staff just put the new towels on the table in the room, and I doubt whether the cleanliness could be maintained. -The communication skills of the reception staff on the day of checkout was poor.I enlisted a staff's assistance to ask if his colleague would be able to find something that we left in our room after checkout. He was not helpful and proactive. I sat down to wait for his response. He did not get back to me and so I asked again after a while. He did not seem to understand more complicated English. I gave up.

    Ok hotel, but not on an international standard”

    We stayed three nights at this hotel and the first thing we notice is that the level of english is not what it should be for an international hotel. But I guess that foreign travellers mostly stay at the international brand hotels and don't look for boutique hotels. The rooms are very nicely decorated and clean (although there was some dust on the floor). Housekeeping removed all of our towels after the first night and did not replace them with new ones. The facilities are scarce. We didn't manage to check out the restaurant. Can be improved, but nice concept.

    Everything was good except that we had to shift rooms during our stay! We booked for 2 nights but we were told that we have to change rooms on the second night! I think this is really ridiculous. I do not know how their booking system works but nobody likes to shift during their stay. It was a really nice hotel except for the changing of rooms on our second night. So I suggest that when you book, you confirm with the staff that its the same room you book for 2 or more nights.
