    The location of the guesthouse is very strategic! It is just opposite Dongdaemun Design Plaza and there are so many foods and stalls around the area. The entrance subway station is just a few steps away from the guesthouse. Because it is a guesthouse, so basically you need to self-service for everything. Simple breakfast is provided (cook the egg on your own). We stayed at the 16th floor and have an amazing view of the city. Very pleasant stay.

    Location of this guesthouse is most ideal for shoppers. The area is full of malls and very alive and vibrant throughout the day and night. It is located above the Maxtyle mall, rooms start on the 15th floor and the office for checking-in is on the 18th floor. It was quite difficult to find at first. After you come out at Exit 1 of the Dongdaemun History and Culture Park station, you will face the huge Maxtyle building right in front of you, across the road. Cross it, and walk to the left of this building. There is a side entrance on the left side with lifts leading to 18th floor for checking in. Or alternatively, you can enter the shopping mall and ask the kind doorman for help. The rooms are huge and clean. We booked a twin but was given 2 twins and 1 double bed. There was plenty of space to spread out. The shower and toilet are together, the sink is outside. There is a small kitchenette with a kettle for boiling water. But no sink here. We are often reminded that this is a guesthouse, not a hotel by the numerous signs. Which means we do everything ourselves. There is no housekeeping, changing of sheets or towels. You have to bring the used towels to 18th floor to get new ones. Breakfast was also on 18th floor, with seating only for 10 people, though there are 2 tables on the corridor. You fry your own eggs, toast your own bread, make your own coffee. Which was quite fun for our group! Location, size of room and decent room rate makes up for the lack of housekeeping and DIY breakfast. Will recommend this guesthouse to groups of friends or families who require big rooms at affordable rates.

    Good location but have to improve on the cleanliness ”
    Take some time to look for the lobby lift to reception area and its located at level 18. The lift is behide the money changer. Check in at around 10.30pm, overall the room is spacious, toilet is clean but the bedsheet and the pillow case is not clean so in advance I have prepare a towel to cover on my pillow case. The guesthouse provided a small towel so please kindly remember to bring your own towel~

    Good location.
    Very unhappy that being forced to stay 'Family Room A'. 😠😤 We booked Deluxe Family Room B which was paid more room fees. The guy kept on saying we booked 4 people room A, we said B B B for 5 persons. We heard the guy made a call and confirmed by the other side that we booked Room B. The guy explained it was system mistake, obviously someone entered to the system incorrectly. He ignored what we said and complaint. Agreed on his own to force us to stay Room A without apology. 😠😬 We were so tired and didn't wanna to talk to him without solution since he just mada his own decision. The room was on a side with a slope ceiling which made the room more smaller. We all think that we should get a refund of room fees difference approximately HK$70 difference per night x 3 nights, we should have HK$210 to be refunded from Maxtyle/Agoda. 😠

    The room given is very spacious for four. View from the room number 1710 was fantastic. Location was great as it is about 5-7mins walk from Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station. Unfortunately, the room was not clean at all during our stay. No proper drinking cups provided, only paper cups given. Heater was very noisy. Overall is a pleasant stay.

    location , spacious and rooms cleaniness
    Staff could not converse in english. Breakfast room too small. We have to eat at the tables placed outside the lift as the breakfast room is over crowded . Breakfast is do it yourself ie fry your own eggs. The hotel limit one egg , two slices of bread and a glass of juice , per guest. No storage area for your luggage after checking out. All luggages are placed around the breakfast room at your own risk. Tiny check in reception , also situated in the breakfast room on the 18 th floor. The hotel DO NOT provided bath towels . Only face towels are provided. Bath room is spacious. Overall i am quite happy with my stay for the price . Quite fun to cook your own breakfast. Could do better with bigger towels. Room size is fantastic big and clean. Location is big plus for shoppers.

    Good location, great view and spacious room
    The location and view from the room is good and the apartment is new and spacious. However, the breakfast I ate everyday for 5 days are 2 X slice of bread + 1 X egg + coffee/orange juice. The reception attitude is extremely poor and don't dun expect good service. When I intend to leave my luggage at the reception after checkout, I have to negotiate and plead the reception to accept my luggage to collect at 9pm due to my flight is 1:40am. Aircon system have a consent knocking sound even when it is off, body soap is empty when we checked in, no bath towel is available (survived 5 days with only face towel). Unless you are going there for shopping and with about 5pax in a room, consider booking this hotel. Value for money but no service.
