객실 상태는 양호하였지만 객실 사진과 다른 곳
객실 사진과 저렴한 가격을 보고 숙박을 결정하였습니다. 그런데 객실 사진과 실제 객실이 상당히 큰 차이가 있었습니다. 그리고 커튼을 열고 싶은데 옆 주거 건물이 보여 커튼 열기가 곤란하였습니다. 그리고 혹시 몰라 치약과 치솔을 사서 가지고 갔는데 샴푸와 바디워시가 통만 있고 채워지지 않은 상태였습니다. 아무래도 오피스텔을 개조해서 운영하시는 것 같았는데 화장실 헬로우 키티 스티커는 없애는게 좋을 것 같습니다. 그래도 에어컨을 잘 나오고 객실 청소상태는 양호하였습니다.

The hotel name is no longer Chungmuro Residences but Merlin Hotel. This is already a BIG misleading for people to book the hotel. So many amenities were not available as well like washing machine, iron and a shower curtain. Bath towels will actually run out of stock.

2/10 Poor

I have stayed at more than 100 hotels in my life. This hotel is the worst hotel. Room is terribly small, the bed and pillow were terribly uncomfortable. The light at the bathroom didn’t work. There is nothing at the bathroom except for a soup. It is the first time for me to write review. Just not stay this hotel. 정말 여러 호텔을 다녀봤지만, 이런게 호텔이라는 놀라움을 감출 수 없는 호텔이다. 모든 것이 엉망인 호텔이다, 베게는 너무 불편하고, 이불도 엉망이고, 침대 또한 엉망이였다. 다시는 이용 하지 않을 호텔이다.
