    The room is very comfortable and clean.

    The computer was in Korean language and no intrent service in the room wich is very necessary for me.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Good location n have free wifi. Plus my room include a desk top with internet for the guest to use. So convenience!

    If the hotel can provide the hotel map/ address both in English and Korean together would be much easier for the guest to find the hotel.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    surrounded with variety of local restaurants and in the heart of local shopping area

    lighting in the room is not sufficient. hi-tech equipment is trendy but too complicated.

  • Single
    5.0

    The hotel is located between Numdaemun market and Bookchang-Dong area, and is easy to get to to the nearest landmark with taxi once familiar with the area, though you would need to walk a little as taxi drivers do not speak English and would not be able to drive you right up to the hotel. No subway line nearby. There was a Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, though I did not try using it. The room had a pc with free internet access, and there was a 50+ inch lcd tv in the room. Overall a reasonable type place to stay on a budget (3+ star), however the rooms were priced perhaps slightly more than it should, a little extra could easily get you to a centrally located 5 star hotel.

    The phone number in the Booked.net reservation confirmation did not work, and I had to spend international data charges to look up the correct number on the hotel website through my mobile, and spent a great amount of international roaming calling charges for a call between the taxi driver and the hotel to get the correct directions. No taxi driver knew of the location, and it is not on the local gps maps. The area though is a little seedy and there are a number of gentlemen clubs in the immediate vicinity, though you would not notice it during the day. The hotel itself was small and basic, no significant facilities. The room was a little cramped, and I had to leave my suitcase on the bed. The shower head in the bathroom was misplaced just above/next to the toilet bowl, and seemed like a mistake in design, while there were only two small spotlights in the bathroom making it very dim, especially in a bathroom covered entirely with black tiles. The pillows a stale smell though the room and hotel seemed new. Some hotel staff could improve on English to provide better help. Overall a reasonable type place to stay on a budget, however the rooms were priced perhaps slightly more than it should, a little extra could easily get you to a centrally located 5 star hotel.

    The location

    Over priced, stayed at very expensive suite that looked exactly like the rooms. They claimed bigger but wasnt. Only one elevator. No bell boy . no cafes. Very discomforting room design shower has no tub nor place for shampoo and soap, have to keep them on restroom floor and step on it and slip some lights not working room service were guys in casual clothes scared my wife when walked out of the room, she thought they were robbers terrible hotel !

  • Group of friends

    Bath room, with jacussi and modern toilet.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    I like that I had a pc in my room with internet free of charge. There is not many hotels that will not only provide you internet, but a free pc in your room. I also enjoyed the friendliness of the front desk and willingness to help/answer questions.

  • Couple
    7.8

    The rooms are newly renovated, and look minimalistic/design with black stone, and white covers. The shower and jacuzzi are very good, although the bathroom is rather inpracticle, with the water of the shower running over the bathroom floor to the sink, at the other end. Airconditioning is very new, and not noisy. TV also provides CNN and BBC, on a very large flatscreen TV.Breakfast is good, with a choice of korean or western breakfast (fresh fruit, cereals,, toast), and a choice of fresh made fried, scrambled, or cooked eggs.The area lies central to main attractions in Seoul, like the palaces and Namdaemun market.

  • Couple
    7.0

    (1) Polite Staff at Reception. (2) Nice Breakfast included in room rate. (3) Very Good service by the male waiter on 29 and 30 Apr 2011 (forgot to get his name). (4) Location near to Namdemum Mkt and lots of eating places at night near the hotel (5) Prompt service or attention to the request when it is made (see the comments below)

    (1) Bathroom Facilities : location of shower head and lights could be improved. Previous reviewer mentioned the awkward shower and dim lights. There was no shower screen and the shower head is located away from the jacuzzi which means u have to shower next to the WC. The entire bathroom floor is therefore wet as there was no shower screen nor any difference in floor level to keep the wet shower area from the area of the WC. The bathroom decor wall tiles are black and with only 2 spot lights (only 1 was working when we check in and had to request for it to be fixed) and hence it is very dim. (2) The room we had contains a double bed and single bed for a total of 3 persons. Though we indicated 2 pp, the replacement of towels for each of the 3 nights is only for 1 bath towel and even though we highlighted to reception, there is no change and so it's kind of disappointing that they do not listen nor register the feedback to the housekeeping colleagues. (3) Only wired internet from their PC is allowed as the ethernet cable pt is concealed and hence if you bring your own notebook, you cannot connect it too. Free wireless is only on 1st sty reception.

    I liked the most the stylish room, and the location of the hotel.

    the bathroom is a bit strange: nearly no light in the toilette, and you have to jump to get into the bathtub, not really comfortable and dangerous

    1. convenient location, 2. in-room computer,3. jaccuzzi, 4. one remote control for everything

    1. No door for Jaccuzzi; 2. the hotel telephone number on Booked.net confirmation was wrong and it took us a long time to find the hotel as the taxi driver did not know the hotel

    helpful, English speaking staff. wonderfully heated floors and clean sheets. daily housekeeping. nice bed. location close enough to markets and yet away from hustle and bustle.

    dark bathroom and insufficient lighting. odd placement of shower head outside jacuzzi/bathtub made it difficult to shower. cabinet for hanging jackets unusually high as if for 7 ft tall person. pillows were uncomfortable. bathrobe too flimsy. hotel a bit difficult to find as locals don't seem to be aware of hotel.
