4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The location is next to Hanok Village which is a very nice place to walk at night with different little restaurants and retailers. There is a 24 hrs 7/11 store across the hotel and a local convenient store similar to 7/11 on the right side of the hotel. This hotel is very close to the metro Jongno-3 sam gu station exit 3. The only inconvenient I find is it is very difficult to walk dragging your luggage thru the street to the bus stop to and from the airport ( 10 mins walk). We ended taking a taxi from the hotel to the airport. I just wish the airport bus is close to the hotel then this will be an ideal location for future stay in Seoul.

  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities

Good points are : - Location is nice just in front of many restaurant and bar. Near center also by feet. Not too far from subway station either. - staff is nice and welcoming, speak English and Japanese and ready to help. Bad point are : - cleanness was lacking. Shower room had dirty water left and brown marks. - Bed sheet wasn’t change from day to day and left some hair when the bed was made. - The air conditioning wasn’t properly functioning (couldn’t stop it at first then couldn’t start it after). - I wouldn’t recommend the morning breakfast. It was not really good and even juice was syrup made.
