In short, you get what you pay for. Price is fairly cheap, but same as any other motel. In fact, this is what you would call a motel in Korea. There was trash from previous guests that were not cleaned just sitting on top of the computer keyboard, and the smell of the room was not pleasant. As stated, if...

This is one of the hotels which is not on any major booking website although it is a very nice and clean hotel. The price/quality is excellent and the rooms they offer are nice (Japanese style). Floor heating is very comfortable. Location is excellent as it is very close to Seoul Main Station. Highly recommended.

Friend booked this hitel for 1 night. Bed was hard, but manageable. Wifi detected from room. Tv included. Kettle included. Elevator installed in building. Walking along corridor seemed scary, its not brightly lighted.

It was the most terrible hotel we've ever stayed in Korea. I don't even understand how they earned the honor from the city. :-S While I was staying there, maids opened our door 4 times without any knocks or anything. They said their room-keeping system was broken and explained that was why they made mistakes of opening the door when...

I had researched hotels on trip advisor for my trip to Seoul. This hotel had came up but the reviews were not real good so we had planned not to even check on it. We got in late and it was in the area and had rooms available so we took the chance. The rooms were really clean and service...

We used the hotel as it was good price and excellent location for both Seoul train station and Yongsan train station (both one stop away). Rooms quite good and clean but the under floor was on full blast This is common thing in Korea and not good for fresh air freaks like me. And get used to rock hard mattresses!

We read some pretty good reviews and were recommended this hotel before we booked. Upon entering the hotel, the receptionist was rude. Once in our room, we immediately saw lots of hair in each of the beds. There were also stains on the sheets. In the bathroom there was hair on the wall, floor and in the bathtub. There was...

I have stayed here a number of times because of the location and price. The clientele are usually multinational so the hotel front desk is accustomed to dealing with foreigners. Their English was impressive. The rooms have always been satisfactory. Nothing fancy but clean enough for a comfortable stay. The rooms, I must add, look very different from what is...

“If you are hungry there are two nice food options. Both are down the alley on the road where Namyeong Station is. You probably walked by them to get here. The first is Born To Be Fried Chicken. Great for takeout. I like the spicy version. It has a nice sweet and spicy sauce. Good for a late night snack. The second is Seo Seo Galbi. It is across the street. This BBQ place has really nice meat and and good prices. It is one of my favorite Korean BBQ places in Seoul. And they are open very late.”
