Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A clean boutique hotel conveniently located within minutes’ walk from the Hongik University Subway Station, 9 Brick is also full of elements of intriguing designs. Beds are comfortable and everything is okay. The only thing to note is that the left luggage service - guests’ luggage before checking in and after checking out are put in the lobby just next to the reception. It seems safe enough though, coz it’s just within the watch of the reception staff.

An amazing location in Hongdae with a great view over the main shopping street! Checking in was easy and the aesthetic of the place was a solid 10/10. The staff were all incredibly friendly and accommodating, both the cleaning crew and the front desk. I recommend to stay here if you are looking to base yourself in Hongdae be it for shopping or for the clubs, being able to walk "home" after the night was incredibly handy!

My only downside, which wasn't even bad enough to lower the score, was the lack of place to hang up clothes. My friend and I stayed in a two single bed room and only had 3 hangers between us. No hangers on the walls either. Staying for 2 weeks you kind of want to be able to get your clothes out and not leave them in the suitcase.

Regardless I would not hesitate to stay here again.

The hotel should 4 star and not 3 star. The room was amazing. Probably the best hotel I've been too in a while. It had amazin view and awesome bathroom. The hotel is also proximity of all the well known shops and metro station.

However our stay spoilt by one of the night receptionist named Jae Young. Who was rude, unwelcoming and doesn't even care that you're there. Even my wife was gobsmacked. Apparently this has been the case for sometime now and there's been complaints about his unprofessional behaviour. It makes me wonder why is he still working there as this hotel would have been perfect except seeing face makes me wish i had booked to another hotel. Management needs to take an action because although i liked the hotel, i would never book again because of his actions.

I asked the hotel to provide another set of comfort but get refused. They said it will cost 100,000 Krw per day with bad attitude. I have live for over 100 hotels around the world and have never been charged for comfort. Please reconsider before you make booking.

The staff at the 9 Brick are very friendly. The check in process was pleasant. The room was clean and the amenities were good. The bed was comfortable and good for two persons. The tub and shower were perfect. We did not eat or drink at the hotel; so I have no opinion on that. The area is safe and full of restaurants. The hotel is close to the subway. I recommend this hotel.

Location not too bad. Near the Hongik station. Very comfortable bed and many food selection nearby. But the bathroom design not well design. A big gap between the door hence while bathing, water will leak outside causing mould outside the bathroom. Overall a good hotel

Picked this place for it's location and great price. It was not a bad decision. The location is awesome, very close to the main subway line in the city. Many restaurants and bars nearby. Plenty of shopping within walking distance. The service was fantastic. No word of a lie, check in (had booked online) and check out took less than a minute each. The room was super cool and the toilet was pure ecstasy :) Plenty of tv channels, several in English. If I'm ever back in Seoul, this is the place I'd go back to.

Let me start with what I like about the hotel. Location was great as it was within walking distance from many restaurants and shops. The hotel lobby looked great. I have a thing for warm lighting and brick walls so the ambience works very well for me.

Prior to my trip, I read about the hotel rooms being too dark and a challenge for ladies to put on their makeup. THIS IS SO TRUE! I struggle everyday to doll up and even applying a lipstick was difficult.
On my return to the hotel one night, I realized I misplaced the key card (they only provided one) and had to request for another one at the front desk. The manager who was at the side of the desk snapped at me and said I have to pay 10,000 KRW in order to get a card. I have stayed in many hotels in different countries and have never heard about paying for an extra key card. Of course I paid. It was very late, bitterly cold and I just wanted to get back into my room.
Overall, service was average but I wonder why the front desk staff always look annoyed and irritated (housekeeping staff were nice though).
I like the area this hotel is located but I have also noticed at L7 is just across the road so I will rather stay there in future.

Location is great at the heart of hongdae.
Rooms are with modern design.

The receptionists didn’t speak english at all and also were not very welcoming. When we arrived too early in the morning the first thing she said was ‘you can only check in at 15:00’ and that’s it. Didn’t welcome us, didn’t offer us nothing after a long night flight.
The rooms smelled weird with ashtray smell from the toilets. The bathroom is not separated from the actual bedroom so you can see and hear everything the other person is doing.

Doesn’t worth the price in our opinion.

It was my second time with 9Brick Hotel, just within 7 months! Location is great and the interior design is decent! Receptionists are always helpful!
I would expect my third time stay at 9Brick again 😉
