This was recommended by a friend, and as soon as we got there we could see why. The location is perfect. Right next to a subway station, in the heart of the Myungdong market with tons of shopping and dining around, only a couple blocks from City Hall and an easy walk to the main palaces.
Hotel was small but pleasant. The room wasn't huge, but had space for two to move around in and the bathroom was a good size with a spacious shower -- something small-sized places often skimp on. And of course everything was very, very clean.
My only complaint was that the breakfast buffet (included in the rate) wasn't very big at all -- usually only one western and one Asian option plus toast and cereal. But since it's surrounded by Dunkin Donuts and other coffee shops, low-cost alternatives abound.
Would definitely stay here again on vacation, although next time we may look at a place closer to Itaewon solely to try out staying in a different neighborhood.
