Best gangam affordable

It was located close to gangnam and right at a subway stop. It was easy to find and the location for exploring the southern parts of Seoul was perfect!! It was also great for other parts as there is a subway!!!

I booked this room specifically because it had a tub, but unfortunately, it was very dirty so I didn't even get close to the tub. Not only that, the room was not clean. There was an old sock left under the table, and the room was very dim but yet I was able to clearly see the sock. Also, they make a big deal about the room being non-smoking, but the first thing I smelled when opening the door was cigarette smoke. The toilet seat was very clearly loose and opening it to clean the toilet would have been an indicator, yet it remained loose on my second day. There was a burned out light making the dark room even darker. And last but not least, there was a long hair inside the packaging for one of the bathrobes. Ew.... I was disgusted but stayed only because booking another room where there is a language barrier would have been worse.

Good basic hotel (motel type), convenient location

Right at Nambu Bus Terminal and Nambu subway station, the location is excellent and easy to get to. Good for a stay on a limited budget.
