Fabulous 8.8 From 351 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great location and very comfortable and clean
Great location. Easy to get to metros and airport bus service. Close to many restaurants and walking distance to all local attractions and markets. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Many coffe houses close and opposite so dont need to worry about breakfast. Would highly recommend
Satish, gb3 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
The room was very clean and the room cleaning service was excellent. They restock us on amenity everyday. The bed was super comfy and the blanket was like sleeping on a cloud. The hotel smell great and the elevator was quick and smooth. The staffs also helped us call the taxi which was so helpful because the language barrier was a huge problem when trying to communicate to the taxi drivers. Hotel is not too far from the shopping district like a 5 min walk away. The only cons are that the pillows are too flat so I got neck pain in the morning and the lowest temp in the room was 25°. Regardless of what temp you set the control setting is ultimately up to the hotel. Overall We would come back again. Ohh and the coffee shops near the hotel is soo good

Very nice and clean hotel, good location
Overall a nice a clean hotel. Everything was great. Very new and modern feeling to the hotel. Clean and good service. I would be sure to ask for a quiet room because it seems that during busy times, it may get loud. But overall, everything was great. I would definitely stay again. It's also less than a five minute walk from a popular strain station

Good for the price
Really good price for the location. The first night however the temperature in my room was at 28 degrees, even though I had it set at 20. Had to go down to the lobby at 2 in the morning to let them know. It did seem better after that. That's my only main complaint. Everything else was fine. Even a half decent workout room, just need heavier weights.

Very Good 8.0
The service from this hotel is superb. Meyongdong about 10mins walk away, close to train and many restaurant nearby. But air con was shut down and quite stuffy during our stay in Oct. Called to complain and they quickly bring a fan over. Overall this hotel is clean, near to subway and service is superb! Will definately come back.
Sharon, sg3 night romance trip
Very Good 8.0
Good central location
Location is convenient for taking the metro. Only 2 mins walk to Eujiro 1 ga stn with lift access. Also walking distance to palaces and some attractions, Myeongdong shopping area etc. Though surrounded by small alleys but appear safe. Also the alley shops provide many choices of food restaurants, cafes, and convenience shops. Hotel reception is friendly and helpful. Hotel also has free shuttle to a few locations which is really a plus. Room size is adequate and clean. However wardrobe is a bit small and has no door to it. Bathroom shower door is not proper as water always spilled out from the shower area to the wash basin area making the whole bathroom wet.
