This clean, descent hotel is priced well for the excellent location. A good place to crash if you are looking to stay at Itaewon, Seoul's most interesting entertainment district for Western visitors. If you are looking for above average service or amenities in this area, you should be prepared to pay more at better hotels.
They don't have any rooms with king-size beds, which is a shame, as they are good size rooms. The rooms are equipped with a full and a twin. Generally, Korean hotels have firm, comfortable mattresses. This one is decent, although not as good as other ones I had tried in my three-week trip. The florescent light bulbs were a bit much. Like many Korean hotels, their centralized control system in the room is cumbersome to figure out. They have a sitting area with a love seat, two chairs and a table. That would be great if the surfaces of the seats were not so murky from overuse and, apparently, infrequent steam cleaning.
Their bathroom is clean and of a descent size, however dated and not easily functional. Both the sink and bath faucets were leaky and splattered water all over. They could install wider shower curtains too. They only provide motel-rate soap and lotions. So be sure to bring you own toiletries.
The bell desk is quite useless. We had accumulated several pieces of luggage at the end of the trip and two bell boys just stood there and watch us struggle with the luggage. Finally I had to ask one of them to at least hold the elevator door for us to load it. NOT COOL AT ALL!
I would only come back here if my budget was limited and I just needed a place to crash after nightlife. Good for that.
