Positive Reviews

Great views

Kind and professional staff

Reviewers feel truly cared for at this hotel. The staff are described as attentive and professional, ready to help with any issue that might arise. Requests and complaints are reportedly met with the utmost grace and speed.

Convenient location

Visitors frequently note the hotel's proximity to the metro station in their reviews. They are able to access the full range of Seoul's attractions without any undue trouble. Many appreciate being a bit out of the city centre as well.

Negative Reviews

Impractical design

Reviewers feel that this hotel was designed with style playing a more central role than functionality. This means that rooms lack all sorts of practical fixtures, such as hooks for towels, bedside switches for lights, and other mundane features that make a hotel room comfortable to stay in.

Rooms can smell of cigarettes

Guests say that some of the rooms at this hotel smell like cigarettes. They find it difficult to breathe easily because of the lingering odour, which air freshener does not adequately take care of.

Breakfast is lacking

Travellers say that this hotel's breakfast offering needs work. They wish for more hot food options and say that the food options are somewhat strange for a morning meal.
