Property seems to be getting old including fixtures and bath tub. Sink was clogged and faucet needs to be replaced as well. Good location and friendly staff. Hope to see some improvements on next visit !

Old, Dark & Outdated
The room was too dark, half the lights were out. The pillows were rock hard and the bedding felt old. The whole room was tired looking and had a lot of dust. It does not look like the pictures at all, I would not have stayed here for full price at all.

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
Location was good and easy to get anywhere in hongdae, haepjeong and sangsu, need to work on cleaning rooms, very dusty and the counter had something sticky, easily taken care of with wet wipes. Sometimes the bathtub is a part of the room so keep that in mind if you are booking with friends. Staff was super friendly when we spoke with them, slightly nervous I think about speaking in English but I am never bothered by that. Building next door is under construction but that’s not the fault of the hotel, but be warned if you are a light sleeper in the AM.
