Fabulous 8.8 From 367 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Loved it!
The only complain I have is that there was a pillar in the middle of the room which made getting in and out of bed awkward. Everything else was perfect! Hotel was clean, service was excellent, friendly staff at the reception who went way out of their way to help me with anything I asked for. Location is right near the Myeondong shopping street, metro access, and mall. I would definitely stay there again.

Great Hotel with Great Rate
General Info - 3 people in Triple Room for 3 nights - visiting families in Seoul. Pros - Absolutely clean room and bath room. 3 singles beds were very comfortable with fluffy comforter. Mini refrigerator with 3 free bottle of water. Free Wi-Fi with better speed then what I have at home. Secured access to the upper floors with keycard scan in the elevator. Smack in the middle of everything, 5min walk to multiple subway lines and Airport Limousine Bus Stop. Free shuttle ride to near by Point of Interest. Hotel staff was hit or miss. Some were super nice, some were not. I read some reviews about sound coming through the walls but I did not experience that. It was super quite through out our stay. Cons - Pillow was flat? I really did not find anything negative about the place.
