“booked a different hotel, got a different one.”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

I booked two rooms for three people in each room, at the Studio Tong located at Dongmyo, but then when I arrived I was told that no rooms are available there and I must move to another franchise two subway stations away at Jongno 5 Ga which is this Hotel Tong. We were given three rooms that fit two people. But I already paid for the Studio Tong room! I'm not sure who cheated, either the hotel management or agoda.

Another thing that disturbs me is that, for a room this small at this Hotel Tong, I can get a similarly sized hotel with breakfast included at Myeongdong at 1/3 of the price of this Hotel Tong. Not going to book with this company anymore.

The hotel is conveniently located near the subway station Jongno 5 ga (it takes 3 minutes from the hotel), near the airport bus stops (only 5 minutes). The hotel is very nice, designed in eco-style. They even have a small and lovely garden and a kitchen. The rooms are tiny but equipped with all the necessary amenities like a hair-dryer, TV, fridge, shower gel, shampoo (please mind there is no tooth brush and paste). The staff is very friendly and helpful, they all speak good English.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the rooms on a first floor - the karaoke club is near so you will suffer from the...
