I wasn't expecting much because I've read some bad comments like smelly toilet but our room (203) was really nice - small but it was alright as I was still able to do Zumba and a bit of floor exercises. It would be a bit difficult to find it if you didn't do your research but we did our homework... More

When I booked the hotel, I did so because it was cheap, had good reviews, and was located close to the subway. I made the foolish decision of not bothering to print out a map or save anything on my phone, figuring if I got lost I could just ask for directions or find wifi and look it up on... More

Thanks for the nice and practical review. We're sorry for the difficulty you had. Even though we really want to inform how to get here, we cannot, because some booking sites just use their own map and we can't get the guest's e-mail. So, only if guests ask us by e-mail, we can send the specific map to make it... More

Pretty much everything is fine with this hotel except one thing, which brings it down from a 4 stars recommendation to 2-stars. Pros: - Good location, very close to metro station exit, only a 2-3 minute walk after exiting Sinchon metro station exit 8. On the opposite side of the main street is the famous Sinchon shopping street, so the... More

We stayed here for 8 nights. We booked the Deluxe room as we knew we'd be there for a full week and wanted to make sure we'd be comfortable. The rooms are small but they really include everything you need. If you're going for travelling purposes you wont spend that much time in the room anyway so it's totally enough!... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and overall it was a pleasant experience. The service was always great, and the room was fairly nice and comfortable.

“Purchase the most expensive room. For me it was only about $8 a night more and wore it for a slightly larger bed and room. When coming from the station with luggage, use exit 7 as it has an escalator, rather then carrying you bags up the stairs at exit 8.”
