Our 2 nights stay here were great. Location is near to Sinchon station, just a 5-minute walk. Staffs I met are all friendly.Room space is not that big but just enough for its price. Bathroom is a little bit small for me. Overall, our stay was great and would like to go back here again.

My wife and I was fortunate to chose Chocolate Tree (CT) for our lodging in our first trip to Seoul. Despite us arriving really late (1am+), Sam was there to receive us and assist us in great details on where, when and what to do for our impromptu Seoul trip. Throughout our stay, all of the staffs never fail to make us feel welcome and help us out in booking and checking reservations for shows, air port queries on claiming tax and etc.

The room and toilet is clean, cosy and comes with strong wifi signals. On top of the basic facilities in the room, there is a desktop PC for surfing the net and a enormous LED TV. Nearby are dotted with convenience stores and a few famous eateries. Our favourite BBQ happens to be right beside CT, is always buzzing with customers,to try out BBQing meat on oil barrels stoves if you are there!

Sinchon subway station is a short walk away and easily connect us to everywhere esle in Seoul City. For those that has problem climbing stairs however, do try to arrange your rooms to be on the ground level. Overall the experience with CT is excellent.

I was nervous for my first trip to Seoul, especially by myself, but as soon as I came to Chocolate Tree, I felt right at home. The staff was so helpful, kind, and spoke English well. It is close to Sinchon subway station and the airport bus stop, and super easy to find, even when I was tired from jet-lag and carrying my luggage. Jin even ordered chinese food delivery for me one night when it was raining crazy monsoon-style - thanks again for that, you're a lifesaver, Jin! I appreciated all the free amenities, especially wi-fi and breakfast. Such a good value in the middle of Seoul! Thanks for everything, I will come again!

Chocolate Tree is situated relatively near to the Sinchon subway station. The rooms are clean and big enough able to accommodate the three of us and our large luggage. The room itself is well-equipped with a flat screen TV, desktop, and a private bathroom. The beds are slightly harder than we expected, but are still comfortable enough for us to sleep through the night. Face towels are also provided.

The staff are all friendly and can converse well in English. We were welcomed warmly despite arriving late in the night. Throughout our stay in Chocolate Tree, we have received endless help from the staff. A special thanks to Jin, who was always ready to help with our numerous requests and questions. Chocolate tree also provides services like wifi egg rental and booking of NANTA tickets at discounted prices.

Chocolate Tree provides a cozy feel – especially the basement where breakfast is served. The staff were a great help to us during our visit in Korea and we would definitely choose to stay at Chocolate Tree again for future visits!

My friend took us to the hostel that she stayed last time, and she didn't disappoint us a bit. I had a pleasant stay in Chocolate Tree. All the staff there are very helpful and considerate, always taking good care of their customers. The rooms are clean and cozy, all sorts of information and facilities comes in handy. Location is convenient, with lots of cafe nearby and close to the subway entrance. If i do travel back to Korea, i will definitely choose CT for my stay again. :))

地點方便,離逛街的地方都不遠,走出來立刻就有烤肉跟很多咖啡廳。早餐都有供應蛋跟吐司可以自行打理,該有的設備也都沒有少。員工非常親切,像朋友一般又不失該有的禮節,提出的問題也都盡力協助解決,各種資訊也非常齊全。另外也會邀請賓客參與聚會,也相當有趣。

I would definitely return to this budget hotel when i visit Seoul next time. affordable cost, great location, helpful staff, efficient check in and out. Surrounded by many good restaurants and coffee shops. Nearby 2 subway station (2-5mins walk). A lot of value added service e.g. wifi egg rental, discounted show tickets. It will be perfect 100% score if they offer water boiler in room of one free bottle of water in room. Having said that, they have a small kitchen, common room at basement that guests can use, they provide free water and equipped kitchen (microwave) if you want to cook some easy food like noodle. Very impressive hotel and I will recommend to my friends.

Room Tip: good barbecue store nearby (the standing bbq type sells Korean beef is so popular). Nice coffee shop...
