Hotel rating is overated given its current state of condition. It has long past its glorious peak, hotel location is good and worth commendation, in between Myeongdong and Seoul stations. Opposite the hotel is Namdeman. There are few 24 hours convenience stores (including one local family run store) and eateries around. Walking distance to many places, if you are willing... More

Rooms are a bit shabby, with holes in the bedclothes and generally dowdy. However everything worked and the shower was good. Reception areas are gloomy but staff helpful. Soundproofing awful - a group of schoolchildren was staying the first night and not only giggled but banged doors constantly going into each others rooms. A bit of a shock after Japan... More
