Overall. Decent hotel.
The air conditioning was pretty bad. Felt like a sauna in there. But beyond that. It was a pleasant stay.

Good Hotel at a Fair Price
I found this to be a very good hotel. The rooms were clean and reasonably comfortable, the price was fair and the service was very friendly. And, the hotel is only a 10-minute walk to the Coex Mall.

Cute and quirky
We just stayed one night so we could go to Comic Con. They staff was very friendly and helpful. Our one complaint is that Waze does not do a good job helping English speakers find the hotel. With no Hangul skills, it is a little tricky to find. We actually got close enough to see the sign from down the little alley as we drove past. Tucked away and quiet. Quirky and fun. We really enjoyed our room. I wish I would have had time to enjoy the amazing bathtub!

convenient hotel
Although the size of room was too small, it was ok for a short business trip. Its convenient location is one of its strengths.

Good value
Nice room at a great price. The only issue is that most of the rooms seem to be quite dark, and the windows are blacked out (no view anyway), so it's not great for working in
