excellent location. near to airport bus location. comfortable bed. except for the air conditioning system as during winter all hotels will change to a heating system instead of cooling system. however, luckily hotel has got portable fan.

just few mins walk to Euljiro-1 subway, 10 mins walk to Gwanghwamun and Gyongbukgong. Lots of eateries around, Laundromat on 2nd level just 2,000 won for wash and 2,000 for dry. Very friendly staff to help and free shuttle to Seoul station and Gwangjang market.

    Location is perfect in Myeongdong, steps from plenty of restaurants and cafes. A block or two from Lotte Department store and subway stations. Easily accessible and parking right on the premises. Only downsides are rooms are a bit small and thermostat doesn't work very well. Otherwise, a great hotel.

    Not for families with children”
    I would have given it a perfect rating if not for the rude front desk staff who kept giving us judging stares each time one of my kids would make a noise in the lobby. I’m sure it’s not the first time they had guests with small children. We travel a lot and I’m not really the type who tolerate bad behaviors from my children especially in public places but kids will be kids - sometimes they can be really playful. A little understanding from the staff comes a long way - not the constant smirks that makes you feel unwanted! Hope this won’t happen to other guests with young children.

    This hotel is less than one year old so everything is clean and nice. The room is nicely designed and all amenities are provided. However, the pillows are too low, therefore did not provide a good support for the neck. In addition, the room temperature is set at 28c, really too warm to get a good sleep:( the hotel provided free shuttle to make attractions which was a bonus. All in all, a good hotel if they could improve on the pillows and lower the room temperature.

    Great hotel to stay, clean rooms and good location ”
    What I liked about this hotel 1. Service staff was always helpful and friendly, smiling attitude. Their English was acceptable and did their best to understand each other. 2. Housekeeping. Always pristine and clean to the same standard as checking in. 3. Room conditions. I have to say this would have to have one of the cleanest and best maintained toilets. Their tile lines were all white. 4. Facilities, hotel provided coin laundry, ice and water dispenser (on top of bottled water), making staying there very convenient. What I didn't like. 1. The room we stayed had a pillar in the middle of the room (viewable from the agoda pictures). This resulted in somewhat oppressed and cramped room which would otherwise be fine. But I must stress this is the layout and I guess in no way any fault of the hotel. 2. The toilet had one door for the shower and the wc area. We tried and found out that whichever way we closed the door when showering water would still seep into the main toilet.

    Good location, good housekeeping!”
    Our 6N stay was from 13-19/Dec. The hotel location is good, accessible to metro stations, shopping (Lotte, and street shops) and eateries. From Incheon Airport, we took subway from Seoul Station to City Hall (Exit 4), the nearest station travel from airport, about 10 mins walk from City Hall to the hotel. Landmark: McDonald, Angel-in-us Cafe at cross junction. During winter, only room heater was in use, aircon was not available. The window could be open to receive cold breeze. The toiletries are well-supplied, water flow is strong. Cons: Need to 'climb up' to the narrow bathtub for bath, and young children or those with knee problem must be careful. Drinking water (hot and cold) was available at the level corridor, very convenient, so no need to boil water if too tired to do so. We would definitely choose this hotel again in our next visit.
