Exceptional 10.0
Very comfortable and enjoyable stay. The staff here are incredible! Everyone is super nice. This isn’t a fancy hotel but it’s cool and spacious and a great place to chill.

Exceptional 10.0
the facility was tiny and had a minimalist theme, but had all that needed for a room. The man in the front desk was so nice and even helped to arrange a taxi for us.

Well-designed and pleasant
I very much enjoyed my stay here. The room itself was pleasant and minimal. It is white and grey, with a wooden bed. Everything standard is included: a mini-fridge, powerful air conditioning, a window, a hair dryer, a shower, a separate toilet, and a separate sink. There is a TV, but unfortunately it seems to require payment for even the basic channels. Also, my view was of mechanical equipment in an alley and thus unpleasant. Wi-Fi is spotty within the room, but if you stand by the door it is fast. Staff were helpful and spoke English as needed (although I recommend at least making an attempt to speak some Korean, for politeness sake!) I got free cookies with check-in. When I requested to pay for extended nights, they were happy to oblige at a reasonable price. Housekeeping was attentive, and door tags for "do not disturb" and "please clean" were available. Housekeeping was even willing to accommodate my crazy schedule of waking up late. They provided plenty of fresh towels and cleaned up thoroughly. The area is not very exciting for a tourist. There are restaurants and convenience stores, as well as the Lotte Department Store nearby. For a livelier area you can walk to Namdaemun Market (which has various small shops for souvenirs and general goods) or Myeongdong (which has large chains for cosmetics, food, and clothing). You can also take the Metro, which is located a minute or two walk from the hotel, to any part of Seoul. My stay here was well worth it.

Very Good 8.0
Design Forward Boutique Hotel in a Great Location
SHBD is quite a unique experience. The extremely minimal design of the rooms in this small retrofitted building is incredibly inventive. While a bit of a challenge for those used to plusher digs, we appreciated the high style, monastic environment. The lack of concierge-type hotel services for tourists may be a problem for some travelers. The young staff is kind and helpful, but is not particularly polished or committed to a career in hospitality. All said, I really liked this place, its superb location, and it's calming sense of cool.
