Stayed in Room 527 from 23rd to 26th Dec. The room is considerably big since we are in Seoul. It is clean, comfortable amc WiFi /heater are all good. It is situated not too far away from the Insa-dong shopping street and it’s near the metro station. So everything is convenient.

Hello, yes, there are toiletteries at the hotel. As for a shuttle bus, there are many buses in Seoul leaving from Anguk Station (2 minutes walk), and the subway is easy and really inexpensive (so are the numerus taxis in town). Subway: Line 3, Anguk station, exit 6. Make sure to have the hotel staff write down your destination in Korean if you take a cab! Enjoy!

Hi which rooms come with washer/dryer?
I was mistaken. They are actually combo washer/dryer units in all their rooms.

Can a single queen/king bed be split into 2 beds?
Don't know, but the bed I was in was very big. Plus I'm not sure the sofa in the place was not also a sofa bed. I was in an apartment room. You should be in direct contact.
