The outlook and lobby look inviting and everything but dont be fooled by it. We went on a tour and this hotel is part of it. After we got the key a staff guided us..out of the nice reception, into a small alley next to the hotel and to another ugly entrance. Yes, just the right start for a horror...

Classic case of what u pay is what u get. The hotel is old and dated. The rooms look like blast from the past, linen looks old and the floor smells musky. The toilet looks like it stuck in pre-war era. I was sharing the room with my mom and due to the condition of the hotel, she was spooked...

We stayed here for two nights with our tour group. We did not get a chance to explore the area because we returned to the hotel late both nights, so I can't comment on the location. The hotel itself is dated. The rooms smell of smoke and despite the effort to keep the rooms clean there is mold growing on...

If you are not paying a lot and looking for a convenient location near to MRT this basic hotel is for you. A basic room and a basic breakfast. Thinking of the price you are paying if not a lot compares to other more pricey hotels, one should not complain to much. I enjoy the local eateries nearby (walk out...

However the air condition was on as it was during the autumn season so weather was pretty cooling already. Room had a few mosquitoes though. But hotel was 5 minutes walk from subway. Pretty far away from central seoul....

We stayed in this hotel for 3 days. The hotel looks ok from the exterior but it's worn out internally. The hotel corridor looks tired and dimmed. The door is not fully sound proof as we can hear people talking inside the room while walking towards our room. Despite the old building, our room is clean but not spacious. The...

I stayed here for three nights on a business trip in May 2013. This hotel is purely surviving because it is in a good area, close to several department stores and restaurants, as well as its close proximity to the subway and the airport limousine bus stop. Otherwise this is a budget hotel at the minimum. The hotel is old...

We stayed here for a week while visiting family and sightseeing. The hotel was booked and paid for by my generous family for it's location. The staff members are so courteous and helpful. The rooms however reminded me of a budget inn, complete with the stench of cigarettes.

“About 7-8 stations away to city, but going to the city shopping streets of Myeondong is the same line and does not require changing train using MRT. Flag a taxi from the hotel to the airport is about 60,000 won (inclusive of toll charge that the taxi driver will ask you to pay separately). From airport, one may take the airport limo (actually it is bus but called limo) and directly to Miasageori station). 15,000 won per person, about one hour ride. Pretty convenient too. May buy the bus ticket from the airport bus/ limo counter.”
