      Booked deluxe double room for myself. Good for solo traveling for the weekend however the bathroom/shower is so tiny. It’s a meter spaced. Beside that was good, nice location. I’d get bigger room next time.

      Nice Place, Great Staff, Better Kitchen Please

      Nice hotel in a great local. The staff were kind and attentive. There was a troubling aspect to my stay, however. The common area saw breakfast served with guests tasked with cleaning their dishes. I noticed several guests not using soap and only giving their cups, dishes, and utensils a cursory rinse under the water. NO SOAP! The staff then told me that no further cleaning/disinfecting was done. THIS IS VERY TROUBLING DURING A HEALTH CRISIS. Anyway, I made sure to wish my cup beforehand after that.

      Lovely hotel in a great location. It had an amazing view from the rooftop and the free breakfast was great. My only issue was that the bed was quite hard so it was uncomfortable, and the room was quite cold with no way to make it warmer.

      Great value for money and close to everything.

      A cosy little room but you are not in the room often only to sleep. View was pretty cool. Breakfast was great. staff were friendly and it’s so close to Myeongdong shopping street. They were doing renovations but that didn’t deter from our enjoyment. Bathroom was tiny but the shower was good. For the price I would say it’s great value for money.
