“AVERAGE... Nothing to write home about”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

Stayed in this hotel at the end of November 2013... on a business trip. Not bad... not good, so I would classify this as an average stay.

Getting straight to the points, I have this to say:

POSITIVE POINTS:
Hotel is very clean, and internet is free and works very fast in the rooms. Staff is friendly, and tries their best to help with a smile. Good options for restaurants 5 minute walk from the hotel... Dongdaemun market. Price is reasonable.

NEGATIVE POINTS:
Stayed in a BASEMENT room. Didn't like that at all, since it was small... and gave the sensation of being "stuffy". In my opinion, it is a very basic hotel, that I would classify as a normal 3 star hotel... far from being a 4 star, as they say. Staff is friendly and try to help as much as possible... but english is a problem for most of the staff, since they understand very BASIC english. FIXED breakfast... NO choice at all, only a plate with eggs, bacon, toast and little more. Would good to have better choice.

SUMMING UP:
As mentioned, this is what I would consider as a standard 3 star hotel (by European Standards). Price is reasonable, but for the same price, I have stayed in better options in other places of the city. Hence my AVERAGE classification.

Room Tip: AVOID THE BASEMENT ROOMS... make sure you ask for a room that is ABOVE Ground level. At least you wi...
