Fabulous 8.6 From 134 reviews

Very Good 8.0
A tiny clean hotel in city town
It is a tiny hotel in city town. Many local restaurants and attractions near by. The hotel is relatively clean, but the room is too small (just like Japan's hotel).

Very Good 8.0
Good location, 6 mins walk to Myeongdong, but without the expensive price of staying in Myeongdong. The rooms are small, not much room to put 2 luggages or walk around. But the beds and pillow are comfortable, place is clean and there is even free breakfast. Overall a good stay if you’re not fussy.
Tsui Yin, sg2 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic place to stay
I am very satisified with the friendly service starting when I checked in and until the day I left the place. Staff are very friendly and polite. Although the room is quite small it is very clean with the amenities I need during my whole stay. The locationis conveniently located to a lot of tourists spots. I will definitely recommend this place and stay again in my next visit.

Good 6.0
Good but could be improved
The hotel is good overall, good location, clean and in good condition, staff is nice and the price is good too. However a few negative points: the walls are quite thin, so if the rooms on the sides happen to be noisy it's hard to sleep... It happened a few nights during our 6 nights stay, noise until 3am when we needed to wake up at 6am to go on a tour, it kind of ruin the next day. Also the room we were in was quite small, just enough space to walk from the door to the bed, no space to put the luggage. Last thing: the hotel offers a korean traditional breakfast: a chicken porridge, and delivers it to the room which is nice. But the quantity is a bit ridiculous, about a mug of it, so had to buy more breakfast outside.

Very Good 8.0
nice boutique hotel in Myeongdong
The room is small but clean. I understand what other reviews mentioned about hearing the shower from the other room but the noise was minimal and doesn't bother much. Overall, it was a nice boutique hotel.
