                  great location; the room is large; the staff can communicate in English

                  I would like to recommend this hotel to anyone who want to stay in hongdae area, for it is near the heart of Hongdae area, yet keeping some distance way from the noisy crowd. Just 10 min walk, you can reach the metro to the Airport (no escalator on the exit to the ground!). The room is large, compared with the many other hotels at the similar price range. Just that there's a coffee stain on the floor underneath the chair; and the comb provided was packed in a plastic bag like it was new, but it has some white dusts and stains sticked on its teeth which indicated that it has been used without cleaning. However, these were just minor problems.

                  It was located between Hapjeong and Hongdae station an easy 10 minute walk to either. The rooms were spacious and airy. The bathroom was great - with a jet bath and powerful shower.

                  Benikea is a good option if your planning to spend some time in the Hongdae area of Seoul. Its very easy to walk to all the nightlife in the area. The hotel itself is very quiet and relaxing, I heard little noise from the traffic outside. The rooms are spacious and nicely designed with comfortable beds, my room came with a good sized double and twin. The room also came with a desktop computer which had fast access to the internet. Checkout is 12pm which gave me time to relax in the room while watching tv which came with some English language channels.

                  The room i booked came with a queen size bed and one single bed. However when i checked in, the hotel staff inform me that the rate was for two person and since i have a 15 yrs old kid with me, i need to pay extra of 27,000 won ( about 31 plus sing dollars) per night. When i stayed at other hotel in Suwon, ChunCheon and SunRise Cruise hotel, none of them charge me extra for a third person when the room were equipped with one more single bed. Please be aware of this if u wish to book Hotel Marigold. The hotel is clean and location is best. It was near Hongjie, airport bus station and sub way.

                  This was the second time my spouse and I chose to stay at Marigold. We love the location as it is close to the main subway station Hongik University which links up to the Airport railway. We also love that the room was just big enough and the jacoozi was great as well. My only area of improvement is that the beds could be softer, but that tends to be the case in most Korean and Asian hotels.

                  Booked for one night, in a good location near the Hongdae shopping area. There is a weird supporting pillar in the room between the bed and the vanity table. Small wardrobe more likely for business travellers. The floor is not carpeted, so very cold to walk on barefoot in winter/early spring! Otherwise one of the more pleasant hotels we have experienced in Seoul.

                  I had a comfortable stay at the Marigold Hotel. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean (although I did find a stray hair in the sink when I first arrived) - but I was most surprised to not find an in-room safe for my valuables! Would have thought that to be a basic provision of a business hotel, at the very least. Location wise, very good proximity to Hongdae and Hapjeong, and also buses (particularly the airport bus) and the subway.

                  Hotel is right in the heart of Hongdae, the college party area of Seoul. You can easily walk to the club area is about 10 min. The restaurant was over priced so I didn't try it. The room was nice but need a fresh coat of paint on the wall. Bed was comfortable although all they had left was a room with 2 twin beds. The bathroom was great. Clean, bedae toilet, and a jacuzzi tub. Just needed more light as some of the lights were not working. Overall I would stay here again...hopefully at al lower price

The room is not that big but suitable for our needs, and they have bathtub in the bathroom which ideal after al long day of walking. The only thing is they seems to have limited staff attending the reception area, we have to wait for 20 minutes for a person to check us in on the first time we came.

                  Being a solo female traveller stopping over for 2 nights, I chose this hotel purely for the location in Hongdae and its price. But I immediately regretted it as the whole place was cold and kinda creepy. It was safe enough but there was no crowds and not much fellow travellers. PROS - Great location. Near the airport limousine bus (right in front of the hotel so you don't have to drag your luggage), 3mins walk to the heart of Hongdae, large hotel room size (for those who need space to spread your shopping), clean sheets and good pillows, cafes like Tous les jours is next door so you can grab coffee and breakfast in the morning and a 24hr noodles and dumplings restaurant further down besides the SPAO boutique. CONS - Cold and kinda creepy quiet premise, rooms are not well cleaned (my bed was unmade but only the rubbish bin was emptied and towels changed??), no sunlight from windows (the rooms mostly faces inwards towards other rooms). Generally not a very warm or that safe a feeling.

                  Central Hongdae, close to nightlife”

                  Location, Clean, good size rooms

                  Hotel is situated very centrally in Hongdae. It's about a 10 mins walk to the Hongik Uni. Station, which is a stop on the Arex. Very convenient for getting from and to the airport. Main hongdae restaurant/bar district right behind the hotel. Rooms were a good size and very clean. Bathroom was nice, however there is oddly no shower curtain.

                  Fantastic room, but horrible service”

                  Comfortable room, central location

                  Regarding the hotel itself, the room was pretty comfortable and big, with adequate facilities - all at an affordable price. The hotel was also located in the Hongdae area, which was convenient for us to sample a large array of local cuisines. The walk to the station was also fuss-free and straightforward (approximately 7 minutes) and the Hongik University station was well-connected to the AREX line, which was definitely a huge plus. However, the WIFI connection was intermittent throughout, and the aircon temperature was preset at 19 degree celsius. The room service was acceptable, though often not very thorough. That aside, this hotel had one of the most horrible service staff that I have ever encountered. We had arrived early, yet the hotel refused to let us check in, leaving us to sleep in the hotel lobby for more than 12 hours. And although we had upgraded to a deluxe room (which has a double bed and a single bed) as there wasn't an option for a 3-person room on Agoda, the hotel tried to charge us more upon checking us in, insisting that 'only one person can sleep on the double bed'. Later on, we decided to extend our stay in Seoul, and paid for an extra night - but the first staff that handled the booking did it wrongly, and we had to come down to the counter on a separate occasion to settle the booking again. Overall, the staff were rude and snappy in their handling of all situations, including mere enquiries on AREX timings. This is a four and a half star hotel with fantastic facilities, but the staff can definitely do with much more improvements.

                  Spacious and clean real Hotel”

                  Clean, good space, right in the middle of Hongdae

                  This hotel is a quality, real hotel amidst streets of love motels. It is clean, spacious, and some of the rooms have great views. We had a room where the window opened into a empty square the building was built around. The hotel is also right in the middle of the best part of Hongdae, where you can find food, bars, clubs, or shopping in minutes. Me and my wife will pick it whenever we go to Hongdae in the future.

                  superb!!!”

                  bathroom, bathtub, cozy bed

                  i was shocked by the room because it has everything. the bathroom was superb!! it has bathtub with some jacuzzi jets, complete toiletries (they even provide with a sachet of facial foam for face!! not even 5 stars hotel provide it), small refrigerators, hair dryer, large mirror, bathrobe for two, slippers for two, quite high tech tv and many many more. the hotel was quite close to the subway around 4-5 mins walk which is close however since i stayed there during winter so 4-5 mins walk was somehow feel so far. in term of food, there are a lot...they have a buffet restaurant in the lobby of the hotel, there are also tous le jours around the corner along with convenience store and there are also lots of spa and saunas places around the hotel though i i did not have the time to try the spa and saunas places. it was a pleasure hotel and i will definitely would want to return to this hotel.
