We stayed at Hotel Shin Shin for four nights on our way through Asia for a family wedding. We made sure to ask for a king size bed and were assigned a room in the tower above the restaurant. Overall, we found the room comfortable and relaxing, and truthfully, more modern and cleaner than some hotel rooms we've seen in the US of comparable price. I know folks had issues with construction in earlier reviews, but we never heard it...though that might be because most of the heavy structural building seems to be done, and we always had the white noise of the a/c going when we were in the room.
Foodwise, there's a 7-11 down the block, and a few bakeries within a block or so. There's also a few 24 hour restaurants within two blocks that were great to visit as well! The hotel restaurant is "ok" and honestly, with the cheaper food options nearby, there's no need to rely on it if you don't feel like it.
Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer and explore more of the area, as it's just up the block from Namdaemun Market, a great place to wander around!
