4/10 Fair

This hotel was not comfortable at all , there was no separate shower in the bathroom and the bed was very uncomfortable. Very hard mattress , even for Korea. Plus the towels were worn out and the sheets had old stains. On the plus side the location was nice and quite, close to small shops and about 800 meters from train station ( sinimun station, exit 1, about 8 min walk).

The hotel is right by a bus stop or a 10 minute walk to Sinimun station (I recomend the station). We were able to check in using only English.

Clean and comfortable-Near subway
Pros: Price and easy subway access (8-10 min walk from Sinimun Station-line 1). Clean. Towels changed daily. Easy check-in (let me check in an hour early). They seem to allow you to leave your luggage behind if needed (saw plenty in the lobby area). Small cafe on the first floor, but also has lots of nearby convenience stores, restaurants, and cafes nearby. Cons: The room is very small, so not ideal for those with a lot of luggage (was not a problem for us). It was a bit hot in the winter, so you may have to ask to have the floor heating turned down in the room. *It is kind of out of the way from most tourist sites BUT this should not be a deternt because the subway is so close by and easy to maneuver to all the sites! Additional Info: The beds are somewhat firm which is standard for Korea, but some may not be used to it.

Reasonable no thrills hotel
Upon arriving at the hotel it looked closed for refurbishment but it was actually open and it was obvious that the hotel had undergone some re-fitting. A couple of days and the lobby and Café took shape properly. The room provided was adequate (though small) as a base to explore Seoul but not for spending too much time in. With Metro Line 1 Sinimun station close by it took about an hour to get to most places of interest in Seoul. Local restaurants were worth exploring but language can be an issue, English is probably behind Japanese and Chinese but many have picture menus. Wi-Fi connectivity was an issue in our room with sporadic connection and loss of Internet routing. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful although English communication was quite difficult (Mandarin helped much better). All in all, for the price, a reasonable hotel to base a short stay on for independent travellers not wanting to use major hotel chains and who like exploring by foot and public transport.
