“A high end love motel”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

Gold comforters and dim lights make this hotel more of a motel, but a high end one at that. It's got a great location for anyone that wants to head out into Hongdae for the night and be able to walk back to the place easily. Staff is helpful and the room was big and easy on the budget. I would rec. this to friends visiting Seoul.

Reviewed 17 June 2012

This is more of a motel than anything else: no kitchen so no breakfast or room service. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from Hongik University station but is close to some very nice Korean BBQ places and bars. The rooms are all key locked and you have to leave them with reception if you want to go out. The rooms are big: I stayed with a mate in one and we both had double beds; massive 50 inch tv. The bathroom consisted of a bath tub, toilet and separate wet room which, if you closed the glass door turned into a sauna. Amenities included a shower, conditioner, shower wash, toner and make up remover, mosquito spray etc... all very nice if you want to use them, but had my own stuff anyway. The aircon was bust and acted more like fan/blower than anything else. The window was blacked out with some kind of film to block out the sunrays but could still be opened to let air in.

Overall, the hotel is clean and affordable, and is great if you're just going to use the room to sleep in and dump a few things in the fridge...
