    Very convenient location in between Myeongdong and Insadong. Good beds. Lots of restaurants nearby. Super clean.

    Lowest possible temperature to set for AC was 22 °C and I’m sure it didn’t even reach that.

    The hotel is truly well equipped with comfortable beds and adequate space. It’s my second time here and I enjoyed it immensely. The staff attending to us when we checked in was so friendly and kind. The location is good too. Walking distance to myeongdong shopping street. I’ll definitely stay here again if I return to Seoul.

    We were told that it’s a non-smoking hotel, sadly, a guest was probably smoking indoors on our floor and it stank our room. However the staff was kind enough to come to our room upon request to spray some air refreshner. They told us to contact them anytime should we need more. That helped and the smell didn’t bother us for long due to that.

    Very nice hotel in a great location in Myeongdong area. Tons of little restaurants around with great food, close to 7/11 and the metro station is less than a 5 minute walk away. The hotel is not big but they make good use of the space, the gym was very nice and open 24 hours which is great. The breakfast is very simple and they don't really change it, but what they do have is decent, just don't expect much from it. You are better off getting breakfast at a nearby restaurant in my opinion. The first room we got was very very small and had a weird pillar in the middle of it which made it even smaller and difficult to maneuver around the room. We were staying for 9 days so this wasn't going to be comfortable for us, we ended up upgrading to a different room which was much better. We had to pay extra for the upgrade of course, but i do not believe the room with the pillar is very fair, it is quite ridiculous to have something like that. Not sure how more than 1 person can stay in a room like that. Staff were very helpful on numerous occasions, as were the cleaning staff. Overall it was a nice stay, just make sure you don't get the small room with the pillar in it. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in the Myeongdong area.

    Small room with pillar, had to upgrade to bigger room which cost more money.
