Convenient location, easy to reach from Seoul station, very close to Namdaenum market and a metro station, also walking distance to the central Seoul Plaza. The room has new wallpapers, but the furniture is old and shabby (the TV table looked like it would crush under the TV any second). Bed, pillow and blankets were comfortable for a 1 night...

The hotel sits right next to a subway station, which can be quite comfortable if you wish to hop on and hop off to see the city sights. Affordable as well at about $50 per night for a Double Room during non-peak season. They provide free coffee/tea, wifi and airport transfers at a good price. Overall, good service.
