Very Good8.0
Great hotel, room too small.
Hotel was really nice and hotel staff was very friendly, but our room was incredibly small for 3 people. Best part was that we were really close to many tourist attractions (less than 10 minutes from one of the palaces and more).

They clean the bedrooms all day long making noise.

Convenient, Clean, and Affordable
The hotel is conveniently located in central Seoul, close to many of Seoul's main tourist attractions. Downstairs from the hotel are great coffee shops and convenience stores for travelers. When we arrived, we realized the previous guest at the hotel has smoked in the room. The hotel staff were courteous and friendly in getting us a new room. Our room, a deluxe double, had a beautiful view of the Jogyesa Buddhist Temple behind the hotel. I had previously lived in Seoul for four years, and since coming back to visit, never realized there were also great restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. Highly recommended for anyone to stay, whether a first time visitor or experienced traveler to Seoul.

Pleasant stay
Very nice, clean, stylish hotel. Staff said they were not supposed to book taxis for guests but they did it on their personal accounts anyway. +1000 for staff, -1000 for policy. Breakfast buffet was nice but it would be even better if they changed just a little bit every day for more variety.
