                Great Stay!My fiancée and I were blown away by the service we experienced as soon as we walked in the door to check in. The gentleman who checked us in was very helpful and offered us complimentary cookies. This hotel also has a 3D printer and printed a personalized name tag for me. The room we stayed in was very industrial chic and was very clean/ cozy. We were impressed at the amount of amenities in the room as well as the quality. We would definitely recommend staying at this hotel! The location is perfect for Myeongdong shopping and eating. Our only complaint would be that the interest speed was quite slow but other than that it was a great stay.

                Stylish Boutique Hotel In Prime Location Great location - one street away from Myeongdong (the cosmetic shopping district), 50 steps away from Euljiro 1-ga Station and 20 steps away from Bonjuk (literally the best place for porridge - must try!). Those craving for mid-night snacks will be spoiled with choices as many restaurants and street stalls are opened till late around the block. I stayed in 3 types of room: Standard Double, Corner Relax (favourite room as it comes with bathtub) and Corner Pleasure. Overall experience at this hotel is fantastic, all the staff can speak English and is attentive, friendly and ever so helpful in accommodating to room changes and calling taxi. I will definitely stay here again.

                Excellent location and serviceThe location was really good. It was so near the subway and most of the shopping area were in walkable distance. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had problems with the activation of my Korean SIM card initially and asked for the reception staff's help. She even helped me call the Korean call center as it was really difficult to activate. The rooms were very clean and you have everything that you need. Love the minimalistic style of the hotel. Another good thing about the hotel is that it is a non-smoking hotel so you will never get a room smelling like cigarettes. For travelers from Incheon airport, you could take airport bus 6015 and alight at lotte hotel/ibis hotel at myeongdong area. SHBD hotel is just about 300m away and it cost 10,000won per pax. I would definitely go back to this hotel again if I were to visit Korea in the near future.

With the simplicity style and good location where is near to myengdong and lotte mall, our team had a pleasant living. You can walk to subway only 2 mins. There is a cafe underneath the hotel so it is so convenient to grab the light meal and go. Behind the hotel building,there are a tons of yummy food such as the rib pork BBQ.

                Location; Style

                This is a hip, boutique hotel near Myeongdong, just opposite the Lotte Hotel and Department Store. It was interesting to see this hotel among the restaurants frequented by salary men from the nearby office buildings. The room was new, clean, and fairly spacious. Both minimalist and practical in design. I would pick this hotel over the overpriced 4 star ones in this area.

                Great, from the service staff, to bed comfort, to cleanliness of room. Very convenient location due to proximity to main Myeongdong shopping area, Lotte Hotel, Subway (Euljiro il-ga). Only drawback was the wifi in the room - not great.

                Hotel staff is friendly and prepare a nice gift for us to celebrate Christmas. Gift consists personalised name tags, cookies, cheese cake and travel pouches. Location is near station and walking distance to Myeongdong shopping street where all the Malls and shops are located. Room is clean and spacious. Bed is comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay at this small yet cosy hotel. Highly recommended to all.

                Decent stay”

                Size of room was reasonable, there's daily complimentary americano for hotel stayers, place is 5-7mins away from the subway and close to f&b/ convenience stores. They could do abit more to brush up the room maintainence/ cleaninesss, there was a damp smell in the toilet and bathroom, but otherwise, it was alright.

                Although the location of e hotel is so near the subway exit and the busy junction of Myeongdong, but it's surprisingly quiet at night! Had a pretty comfy stay. The staff is very approachable and friendly too!

                Location & Room Safety”

                Great location near to subway station less than 100m away. Surrounded by office buildings, convienence stores, cafes, bakeries & restaurants. Feel not safe where you need to return the key every time you left the hotel. How if any stranger just mention any room number and got the key from reception counter? Also, fee quality Americano coffee from 10am to 10pm, just show your room key number. Overall is a great place to stay, will definitely come again for next visit.

                The design of hotel is minimalist and really cool. The location is great and staff are really friendly.

                I will stay in Small House Big Door again if I come to Seoul in the future. I love the minimalist and modern design of the hotel. The location is just 2 min walk from metro station and around 10 min walk to Myeong-Dong, really convinient. The staff also very friendly and nice. I quite enjoy my stay in here.

                Located just 1min from Exit 2 of Euljiro 1 ga and <5min walking distance to Myeong-dong. Like the minimalist décor and creative use of space. Bed was comfortable. Aircon/heating was centrally controlled so the room can be a bit warm with heater on. Heating in shower didn't work properly so the water became too hot for comfort. Overall all enjoyed stay at the property.

                It was a real pleasant stay, for those who wants to opt for a fuss-free stay, this hotel will be perfect. The rooms in the photos displayed seemed a lot bigger than the actual room but since it's minimally furnished, it gives one a spacious feeling.

                Location, staff, restaurant attached

                We enjoyed our stay. Room is compact designer style with hair dryer and basic amenities. Coffee and tea poor quality and not replenished daily. Shower gel, shampoo, conditioner looks fancy from bottle but again could be better quality for price of hotel. These too we're not replenished daily. Supposed Eco hotel but towels always wrapped in unnecessary paper. Hotel did have great staff, very friendly and very helpful. Also impressed by bistro restaurant that seems to be the main focus of the business. This has a wide selection of drinks and food. Location is great, just 2 minutes to tube station and 5 minutes to main shopping and restaurant area of Myeongdong. To improve hotel needs to provide more consistent hotel services and could look into better breakfast options (cold soup is great but more choice needed).

                We had a very pleasant stay. The location is superb - a short stroll to the Subway and Myeungdong shopping district. The place is quite new and very clean. Our only gripe was that they had no iron to lend and we were going to a wedding.

                Great location, it was easy for us to find the hotel as we spent few days in Seoul already. Close to Lotte Department Store and metro station. Friendly staff, they gave us welcome cookies (I think they were homemade) which was very sweet. The reception and all the furniture was very stylish, very suitable for young travellers to stay in.
