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.

Great family room
We stayed in a family room which had two single beds and a bunk bed. My kids loved the bunk bed. The hotel was lovely, new and clean. Room amenities were great. Staff were polite. My only complaint was that the room was very warm. The air conditioner couldn't be set below 22 degrees and, even when we had it set to this temperature, the room temperature was between 26-27 degrees the whole time we were there which was uncomfortably warm for us. We did try to communicate this to the hotel staff and they sent an engineer to our room but he didn't understand what we were asking. I tried to indicate that we would prefer the AC set at 18 degrees and thought we was going away to update it but this didn't happen.
