I very much enjoyed the stay at Roi House. It was very clean, the service was nice and I generally liked the area which Roi House is located in. The Hongdae area is very central so that access to most sightseeing locations is very easy.

Great location, as it is in the quiet part of the University town of Seoul, but near enough to the train station (only a 10-minute walk) which you can take directly from the airport or to Seoul Central Station. The area felt safe to walk around at night, and there are several restaurants nearby that you can't go wrong with....

Neighbourhood Profile
Sinchon / Ewha
Neighbouring Hongdae, the Sinchon / Ewha area by Yonsei University and Ewha Womans University is a popular student hangout spot known for its youthful jovialness. The two respective schools and their beautiful settings are among the best in Korea. As the main demographic in the area are younger students, most of the businesses cater to their tastes with price ranges to match. The plethora of things to do in the area makes it busy all through the day and night.
