No, you won't find luxury or amenities here, but you will get a clean & functional room (albeit tiny), at a great location. It is within walking distance to many Seoul's attractions including the famed Namdaemun market, Myeong-Dong shopping district and City Hall area. If you don't mind a bit of a pleasant walk, GyeongBok Palace is also not too far. The hotel is also smack in the middle of restaurant & nightlife area. It remains vibrant until late at night. A great place to find local delicacies, and they are available at wide price points. In short, I felt it was worth my $.
Another plus: it is also within walking distance from at least 2 airport buses and the City Hall subway station.
I also appreciate the fact that the reception staff spoke excellent English and was helpful with local maps and tips.
Do print out a map from the booking site before you leave home. It's not as difficult to find as some poeple said.
