Summary: A new, clean, and nonsmoking hotel that is hidden, but comfortable and great for the price point <$50/night.
Details: Not in most GPS databases and nkk ok one has heard of the hotel or the address (!), so even the taxi driver got lost. Don’t try to take the subway and go at night—take a taxi and hope for the best. It’s virtually impossible to find unless you have been there.
The rooms and building are new and clean, and rooms are truly non-smoking.
Hardwood floors are nice and there are a few hangers for your clothes, but no closet, or place to store luggage. Big comfortable bed. Fast wifi. But the rooms have no chairs or table (just a long counter), so you need to stand and eat. The bathroom is Korean/Chinese style—the shower and the toilet are literally not separated. A shower will clean the toilet so that is why they provide slippers. Seems like a way to save space in a small room.
Staff speaks English well and will call a taxi or help you get around. A great bonus!
I recommend you spend a half day walking and acclimating. There are three convenience stores within 10 minutes, an Illy Espresso bar and a local coffee shop with great lattes, and a local expresso bar within a five minute walk (the espresso bar is next door).
Restaurants are about 15 minutes towards the station or in the opposite direction.
Bottom Line: I’d stay again if in the area.
