    Bed was very hard and uncomfortable and very hot ”

    The view is fantastic, that is the reason I bought this room. The bed was very hard to sleep on and I couldn't get the temperature lower than 28C!!! It was very hot the entire stay. Knowing all of this now, would I stay again? No... not for 90,000 won.

    Great location, underground train station exit with lift almost at door”

    Premier double room for six nights in July 2018. Room very comfortable, unique with bath on stones in room. Check in prompt but reception staff rarely acknowledged us as we went past, could improve on this. Breakfast area didnt appeal to us. Lift for subway probably 20 metres from hotel door, good for luggage. Street towards Seoul station not the best for walking at night, as hotel side is industrial and motor repairs, but was certainly within walking distance. Good range of restaurants in side street further away from Station. Good hotel and good locations for underground.

    Great Value For Price”

    I'm a very no-frills traveller who prefers to save and stay at hostels but this hotel was worth the extra few Wons. I was a stone's throw away from the subway station and bus. I was also able to walk to Seoul station in 10 minutes. There are many great food options if you walk around and the neighbourhood is very safe. I arrived after 1am but I was able to check in properly and was greeted by a spacious suite with beautiful, modern furnishings and a giant bath. The amenities were great and everything was clean. I was lucky to have a room on the 10th floor and I had an amazing view of the city. Fully recommend.

    Overall excellent experience of 9 night stays”

    Pros: Hotel located right in front of Sookmyung Uni station exit 10. 1 stop away from Seoul station, 3 stops away from Myeongdong. There's GS25 right beside the hotel as well. Several good food places along the road down. Room is spacious for two, but might not able to open up 2 luggage fully at the same time. Toilet seat is warm (love it) and bath tub is big! just need to be careful of water spilling out and wet the floors while showering. Cons: Room was too warm during winter time and there's no way to adjust the room temperature or the heater which we in the end need to open window to let cold air in. Probably because of this, our bed was somehow dusty, and they did not change bedsheet everyday (we asked for daily makeup). Overall, it was a nice stay at the hotel and it's recommended!

    Room is tiny with a giant TV screen crammed in, when there is already no space. Fully transparent glass separating bathroom and mirrors on the ceiling.

    Ruined Wedding Night”

    Booked a room here for my wedding night in October and told the hotel well in advance. They said that they would treat us to a special room but when we arrived (at 3am because we had been celebrating with family) we found our bath tub to be leaking water onto the floor. The staff's first solution was to just put towels down. Ridiculous. They then initially said they couldn't offer us a new room. I complained that they should offer us a refund for the night but they said they could only offer half refund if we stayed. We could get a full refund for all four nights we had booked if we left that night. My new wife had to sit and listen as I argued with the idiot night staff who later said there was a new room available but we'd have to wait 20 minutes. We left, and were given very weak apologies. Absolutely awful staff. Avoid this hotel if it's an important day for you. Useless!

    Our favorite hotel”

    This has become our favorite hotel when staying in Seoul. It is at a great location just one subway stop away or an easy walk from Seoul station. So easy access to everything in central Seoul. Always found the staff friendly and willing to help.
