Hotel staff spoke English well, never had difficulty explaining myself, i found that the station which is about a 5 minute walk away, is a major station with several major lines, most important of which is line 2, and that is the closest to the hotel ( exit number 2). The room looked very nice, well themed and decorated (romantic) with a nice large tv with a few english channels, a work computer if you didn't bring your own laptop, fast reliable WiFi, complimentary water and juice in the cooler, which got restocked every day and a nice large bathroom and tub. (the room itself was large compared to many Japanese/Korean living conditions) The room also sports a nice lighting system you can control the TV, the lights and the air conditioning with a single remote.
The bed was on the harder side, while i have had worst hotel beds, i had a good nights sleep every time and on the good side it was nice and large so the two of us had plenty of room to stretch out.
The view was nice, but the window was small, then again, on the good side, once we closed the decorative shutters the room became nice and dark as well as silent.
my biggest concern was the air conditioning vent is pointed at you when you sleep, so it became quite cold at night, we had to rely on cooling the room down at night and then turning it off when we went to sleep. another solution was to put towels in the railing in front of the bed and point the vents down. the floor could have been cleaned more often.
the hotel room is comfortable, and one can be provided tv, computer, refrigerator, drinking-machine, and free-wifi---if a wardrobe is provided, it will be perfect.
the around district is quiet, but a lot of restaurants. most of the restaurants serve barbecue style food. there is a small porridge restaurant, and its porridge is pretty good and special---i cannot remember its name, and it is on the opposite of the nearby mcdonald's.
one can buy toiletry and bottled-water in nearby stores like mini-stop and 7-11.
the hotel is close to the metro, line 2 and 5, so it is convenient for travellers to go to every corner of seoul.
I picked it cos its cheap and it offers what I want. Close to subway station, just that probably not many muslim tourist have stayed there before so all those neighbourhood aunties and uncles stared at us weirdly cos of the hijab.
