5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I was so surprised at how nice this place was! I had a bath tube that could have fit 6 people in, the bed was fairly comfy for an Asian country and the property was just about 5 min walk from the subway and all the hustle and bustle that hongdea has to offer! I will always stay here when in Korea. And it was super cheap!

      • Liked: Staff & service
      • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

      Honestly it was nothing like the images showed. The room was tiny with little to no space for the two of us to put our suitcases. the bed on the left side had broken bits falling off. Honestly the rooms were so basic and nothing like the images or the concept of the hotel. Was just overall disappointed as it was nothing like we expected. However the staff were very helpful and kind.
