Great location! First time staying here and will most likely come back. Every time we visit Korea we try to stay in Dongdaemun area because itโ€™s easy to get to other areas of the city. The hotel was great because it was very close to the subway and late night shopping. Only complaint is that the rooms were smaller than expected.

Booked this hotel because the pool looked amazing in the pictures. They do have a nice outdoor pool. But you need to make a reservation for a time slot only per day (for 80 minutes) when you can use the pool. Too many people for a small outdoor pool, so I understand why they have this system but why does this pool have about 20 sunbathing chairs only while they allow more than 50 people at the same time? The size of the pool itself can't accommodate more than 20 people, but there are so many people packed that it looked like a bathtub rather than a pool. And funny nobody actually checked the reservation at the entrance to the pool so who knows maybe some people snuck in the pool without making a reservation. Breakfast, again, has this system that you need to choose one of the four time slots to determine what time you can enter the breakfast restaurant. Having stayed in many 4-5 star hotels in Seoul, this breakfast place, by far, is the most chaotic place with the most limited food option. The layout is just strange, as well. There are 3-4 food stations separated from each other in a narrow hall and the tables are located closely to each other in between so you have to wade through the myriads of tables and people to get what you want. In conclusion, it is painfully obvious that this place is struggling with too many guests with too little resource and space. I know so many better Seoul hotels I could've booked with the money I spent on this one. Never again.
