Great location, great value
Hotel is within walking distance to Myeongdong and Namdaemun market is just across the street. Airport bus stop is within 5 min walk of the hotel. The hotel is of reasonable size for a downtown hotel. It's clean and modern. I stayed at the second building and there are only 3 rooms per floor so super quiet. The hotel is located in an alley way off the main road. It's a slight uphill walk. Keep that in mind if you have heavy luggage with youl

A very pleasant stay
All staff have been extremely helpful and courteous. Location is perfect which is within minutes to shopping area and metro stations. The YouTube clip is an excellent tool to show me how to get from the Namdaemun Market station to the Hotel. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay.

Great rooms and location
Rooms are a bit small but very clean and enough for a visit to Seoul. Subway station is about 10 minutes walking and there are several attractions within walking distance of the hotel as well. Staff was friendly and helped with any questions asked. Great hotel.

Great Service
It was August and summer time. Perspiring under the scorching hot sun and panting with the heavy luggage. Finally reach at the hotel and the front line staff saw that i'm perspiring like waterfall and quickly took out a roll of tissue for me to wipe it off. Great observation and service. Forgotten to take down her name. Short hair with a great smile. Next she allows an early book-in time and upgrade my room due to some internal mix-up error for the book-in date. Although Agoda shows the right date but it does not reflect in their system. The cleanliness is fabulous and i must say the cleaning staff done a fabulous job. Overall, i'm very satisfied with the service and definitely value for money. The only issue is the location. Very near to Lotte Plaza and Shinsegae shopping center. but need to walk further to myeongdong shopping belt.

Exceptionally helpful staff
The assistance offered to travelers at this hotel is among the best. The staff go to great lengths to make sure guests are comfortable and cared for. The hotel itself is pretty nice. It's a small boutique hotel without a lot of extras, but the lobby is great, rooms are well designed, beds are comfortable and everything is well maintained. There are a couple of really great contemporary sculptures and paintings in the lobby and just outside the front door. This hotel offers by far the best value I've seen anywhere.
