    Highly recommended, reasonable price, clean facility. However, you should be noted that most of amenity are not provided due to eco-friendly policy. Body & hair shampoo, soap only. the toothbrush, paste shaver are not provided but you can buy them GS25, 7/11 neighbour of the hotel. Spa, fitness included. Plus, it's not that close to metro station but just right next to Insa-dong street and Iksun-dong alley.

    Various local restaurants around, easy walk to Metro and bus station. The property itself is typical Iibis style, overall stay experience is satisfied.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Overall a great moderate budget hotel with gym, hot bath, and roof top seating. Close to everything you need. My ONLY complaint is that the hazelnut coffee provided sucks, so bring your own instant coffee/tea.

  • 6.0.Good

    Okay but not ideal.

    Service was good, staff was friendly and spoke English well. Bed was uncomfortable especially if you don’t have a good back. I could feel the springs underneath and it was painful. Breakfast was 9000 won and decent but it should have been free since it was more continental style food. Location was far from the bus stop, a 10 minute walk and from the tourists attractions like Insadong and the palaces. For a first trip I would not recommend this place as it was not as convenient as I would like.

    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.

    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.

    Pros: location, personnel, toilet :) Cons: cleanliness needs to be improved (don't look under the bed, you will get scared), we had a couple of issues, one of them required us to change rooms and the other one involved the washing machinr that works with coins. Not a perfect stay, but the staff was good solving our issues.
