Reviewed 15 November 2017

This hotel is on the opposite side of the busy Myeongdong shopping street. It is within walking distance of Myeongdong Station (exit 4). Limousine buses from the airport and outbound daytrip buses also stop in front of the subway entrance (or nearby), thus putting this hotel in very strategic location and suitable as base for exploring the city. It is also very affordable, clean, and modern compared to other hotels nearby.

If you arrive to the city/Myeongdong by subway with luggages, please be aware that there will be section with staircase-only (no lift/escalator) access. Exit 3 has escalator.

The bed was comfy, but the standard room is a bit smallish with very small window. Our room on the 6th floor get no natural lights in as it was facing a big wall. Thus fresh air is hard to get in. It was november, and the hotel has turned off central air-con, and they declined to turn it on for our room. So at night, we were kind of struggling to go to bed due to the warm room temperature (eventhough it was pleasantly cool temperature outside).

My advice is to request a room with outside view, that way, at least you get access to natural light and fresh air. Get a family/triple-bed room and you'll get a much, much bigger room and bathroom

I wasn't impressed with the work of the housekeeping. We stayed 5 nights, and the sink hadn't been properly cleaned and wiped of soap scums the whole time. Amenities were not consistently replenished. They did not provide body lotion either, which definitely would have been helpful for Seoul dry air. Our shower did not drain quick enough due to the design.

Big flat-screen TV and dimmable bedside lamp was a plus. The lift and reception/lobby was nice. The reception service was hit and miss, depending on who served you. I got a reception guy who didn't smile at all during checkout. It was probably part of his nature, but it didn't exude warmth/welcoming feeling for guests being served. Some speak good English, some have limited English.

Room tip: Rooms with outside view (facing the street) have ccess to natural light and fresh air. Family/triple-bed room has much bigger room/bathroom.

We are group of 5 people. Booked the hotel via Agoda and spent 8 nights there. Really feels like home, simple hotel but really nice and quite. Once you enter the lobby you will smell the grape fragrance it's like hotel's signatures fragrance =p

We booked two rooms. One twin beds and other one is double bed plus one single for my parents and little sister.

The hotel located in the main road, this is perfect. Do you know why? Because taxi can easily stop there. I recommend you not stay in the Myeongdong Center Area it's too packed and taxi hardly go in there. Pick hotels in the main road it was just 5 minutes walk to Myeongdong Station and Myeongdong center where you can go shop and eat. There are a lot of choices of hotels there but I really in love with this hotel.

Like the location of the hotel which is right infront of Myeongdong station. Very close to the N Seoul tower. However, amenities in room has some operations default. The plug has issues operating well and seems friends travelling together is not too happy with the staff service.

We had a pleasant stay. The hotel location is very accessible and convenient. Myeondong street shopping area is around 5mins walk. Visiting other tourist spots from the hotel is also easy since it is located near the station.
The hotel has a rooftop which offers a nice view of NSeoul Tower. The room was spacious enough for 3 persons. The bathroom is wide and clean. They offer breakfast with few selections but it was fine with us. The staff were also helpful and nice.
Will stay here again when we go back to Seoul.

Room tip: Rooms on higher floor facing NSeoul Tower
