                Great hotel ”

                The room was small but i liked that the windows were big so light comes in. Actually booked this place for 1 night because i had booked another place for the remainder of my stay, wished i had just booked hotel the ore for my whole stay. Staff were friendly, location wise its away from the noise which is good. Wished the early check in can be alittle more flexible.

                Well located cozy and comfy room for the night”

                The hotel itself is easy to get to from Hongik Stn. The room was spotless and the bed was super comfy. The bathroom is a bit small, but that's not a big deal as we were only there for one night. The only thing that would have made it better was if we could have gotten the corner room (as requested) with a better view of the area. Otherwise, we were very happy with our place for the evening.

                Very Nice Room”

                The hotel was located at Hongik Uni. Station, and a walkable distance of about 10 mins from Exit 1 (basically across the streets is already the Hongdae district). From the exterior, the hotel doesn’t looks impressive, but I did “wow” when I checked into the room. The size of the room was just nice, and it looks modern. However, it might be crammed if two luggages were to open in the room. That aside... I have stayed 4 hotels throughout the trip here, and this the only hotel that has a safe. Oh, and the staff was friendly and helpful as well. I just find that the price was a bit higher than most hotels, but that’s probably because of the location and room facilities.

                Cozy room with all the amenities and close to all the Hongdae action”

                My husband and I really liked this hotel because it was easy to get to and located near all the shopping, food, bars, and clubs in Hongdae. Access from the airport was easy. We took the 6002 airport limousine bus for 10,000won each, got out at the Marigold Hotel stop (2nd stop from the airport), and it was about a 3-5 minute walk. Room 801 was small but cozy. The bathroom is so small that there is no shower curtain, so when you do shower the sink and toilet will most likely get wet. We didn't mind this, but those who require more space may not want to stay in this type of room. It had all the amenities that a typical hotel has + the following extras: -Japanese style toilet with bidet -Heated floors For the discounted rate that Agoda provided, we were very happy with what we got and highly recommend for light travelers who want to be close to everything Hongdae has to offer.

                Great place to stay. Loved the location. The only issue is the shower is combined in the washroom which gets pretty messy. Also the AC was making creaking noises until I could find the setting to keep it from rotating.

                It close to the subway station. It is not located on the main street so I used some time to find it at the first time. But, the location is good. Room was small but clean. The staff was friendly. The only disadvantage was the shower area and the toilet was not separate. Therefore, the toilet get wet after shower. Overall, it is still a good hotel.

                Stayed 7 nights in November 2017

                Clean , cozy and absolute convenient location ”

                Pros: 1. Clean and properly make up the room 2. Convenient to travel anywhere as the subway is few meters away from the hotel Cons: 1. No coin laundry in the hotel 2. Aircon was switch to heater automatically by the hotel in early November and was told by the front desk to open the windows to allow air/wind to cool the room if feel hot/warm But we got insects bite on our face, neck, arms and thighs. My Daughter could heat the buzzzz sound made by the insects as it flies around her face!! Could be good if we can choose to switch on heater by ourselves as the weather is still not cool yet that’s why insects are flying around. Moreover the room is small and if all windows are closed and heater is on is really hot and warm inside. We literally feel cook inside. Overall this is really a nice hotel and we enjoyed our stay here. Although is small but it has such nice high ceiling which is not usually seen in hotels in Korea.

                Very good”

                Decent hotel which situated near Hongik University station. Hotel receptionist able to communicate in English and they also provide booking of Taxi if needed. Room has a high ceiling and the bed was comfortable. Although the hotel do not provide daily water bottles (cups are provided), but there are water dispensers on every level. There are many convenience stores near the vicinity of the hotel. Overall, decent hotel yet affordable prices.

                This hotel was a good choice for us. Convieniently located by the train station and accessible to many cool areas. Very reasonable rates and the service was good. Quiet hotel overall, we didn't hear anyone on our floor or elsewhere! Our trip was amazing and we can't wait to go back to Seoul.

                Location”

                Located us across the streets of Hongdae shopping street. Lots of food available within walking distance. Floor was heated but the heat distribute unevenly. Some areas were too hot. Room only able to accommodate 1 medium size luggage. The high ceiling made the room look a lot bigger.

                The location is really convenient since it is 5 minutes from the subway station and the Main Street of hongdae. Though the room is a little bit small, it is clean and tidy. The staff are also friendly and willing to help.

                Room is a little bit small but still nice since the ceiling is quite high and feels like larger room. Amenity was good but it was a little bit hard to control the air conditioner for me. Close from the station and good to enjoy night time of Hongdae.

                Fantastic location in the Hongdae area”

                Hotel is situated within a very comfortable 5-minute walk to Hongyik University Station. My only gripe is that the hotel room is small, I had difficulty finding a space to open up my 25" luggage. If you are coming back in the night, do note that the alley can be a tad dark so flash your torch lights.

The air con is a bit too cold and we are unable to adjust the tempature. 2. locate inside a street with bar and pub. It may be difficult for first time traveller and dangerous to single girl at night Overall it is good for group/couple traveller

                Location, price, staff

                Well located and priced. The hotel is located near Hongik, which is a fun area. The subway station was only a few minutes away. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Only minor complaints are that the room was a bit small and the bathroom was in the usual Korean style (everything gets wet) ... but those are only very minor complaints.
