We stayed 6 nights at the hotel. The location of the hotel is very convenient. The interior design is very modern and new. Once we alight from the AREX, we followed the signs at the underground till Exit 1, where we could take the escalator up to the ground level, from there we turn right and walked around 3 minutes to the hotel. There was 1 'express' lift that takes visitor directly to the 21st floor reception when we arrived. There were 3 other lifts that can be taken to all floors. The staff helped us with the self check-in computer and it also dispense the room cards. They were able to converse in English.

Our twin bed rooms were on the 9th floor, we could see McDonalds right in front of us. We can hear some noise at night when we get back to the room, but the noise did not disturb our sleep. The beds are comfortable and 2 pillows of the same hardness are provided, 1 big, 1 small. It would be a good touch if the hotel can stock up on harder pillows in case guests request for it. Drip coffee was provided in the room, there was a kettle and 2 bottles of mineral water provided. Or we could choose to get hot or cold water from the water dispenser available on every floor. Paper cups were provided in the bathroom and also beside the kettle for the coffee, however no mugs or spoons were provided, in case we wanted to make a beverage. I would also suggest that a tumbler could be provided in the room to get more water at a time from the dispenser.

Lift was quite slow as mentioned by other guests, so it's best if you leave the hotel ahead of time. The view from the room is really nice and the lights in the rooms are really bright, which is a good touch. However, it would be good if we are able to switch on the bathroom lights without switching on the light in front of the table as it may disturb the sleep of your room mate.

There were around 60 channels available on the TV. There is a good gym with many facilities inside. The dining area is perfect as well with many areas to take good photos. For breakfast, we are able to choose a dish from the menu and get free flow items from the dining area such as yogurt, coffee, tea, fruits, milk, cereals, eggs, meats etc. However, we went late and only 1 item on the menu was available. Although there is only a small variety of free flow items, but it is sufficient enough.

The LINE shop is right below the hotel at the 1st floor, and there is also a seafood restaurant and a VR game place below as well.

Nice and comfortable hotel...very convenient to the subway system and nightlife around the area. Breakfast is nice but it was the same selection (stayed here for almost a month). Rooms are well kept and staff is very nice...only downside is elevator system...seems to take forever.

This hotel provides stunning views of the city. We stayed on the 11th floor which isn’t one of the premium rooms but if you want any room above 11th floor you need to pay a bit extra. Lobby is on the 21st floor which has stunning views. This hotel is very modern and and central, the metro is a 3 minute walk away. The bed itself is very comfortable and the pillows are the best I’ve encountered!

Staff are lovely and helpful. A girl at reception helped us order chicken to the hotel! Although there were some issues because the hotel aren’t allowed to help you order anymore because apparently there have been cases in the past where people have stolen the chicken and they have had to pay.

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon travels in September.
The hotel is very easy to find from Hongik University station which is a direct train line from the airport. It is only 5 minute walk from the station.

The check in desk is on the 21st floor which I thought was nice at the beginning, but by the end of the 5 day stay I could see how this was a huge annoyance as it creates unnecessary lift traffic.
We were given a room on the 19th flood facing out the back of the hotel which was lovely. The front of the hotel can be quite noisy as it is a main pub/restaurant street, but he hotel provide you with earplugs in your room.

The room was immaculate, very spacious and cleaned to perfection every day with fresh towels/bottles of water.
Check out was quick and efficient, although when asked if we could store our luggage, the two female receptionists started laughing and just took the bags which I thought was quite rude. If you make check out 12pm, you need to allow for easy storage of bags in the hotel as out flight wasn’t until 11pm.

The pool on the top floor was nice. There was only 3 other people there when we went, but it is quite small I can imagine for a very hot busy day. It is expensive, and they charge extra to have a seat and a towel which I think is a bit ridiculous. The hotel is expensive enough I think one day should be free of charge at least.

We had a very comfortable stay here, but I think the hotel does need to tweak some areas a little bit, hence I haven’t given the 5 stars.

Cute and modern. The perfect distance from the super busy streets that are packed with energized college kids. On a main strip that has great restaurants and shopping. The house keeping was great. Security at the 1st floor where the elevators are AND you need a room key to use the elevators- perfect. The rooftop bar was a little spendy, no cocktails under 20 USD but the service was impeccable and the view was stunning. And, the cocktail, Birmingham Spring was superb. Great modern, fun, clean, casual hotel in the middle of everything.
