3/5

Service was extraordinary. Cleanliness, not so much. I found 2 bugs crawling around my shower curtain and fungus in the washroom. I guess the building being so old, some damage is unavoidable. Location is a bit off from the central Gangnam area and it is on a hill. Be prepared to hike

Stayed 7 nights in Oct 2019

4/5 Good

Room was clean, and the space was good enough. However, the dryer in the room was very old fashioned, it needs to be replaced. The front desk employees were not well trained, and the check in speed was very slow.
