Nice, safe and convenient location for first time tourists. Will recommend others and will stay there again on my next visit to Seoul. The only inconvenience I have is not having in room iron and microwave. Have to go to some other floor to iron.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The location of the hotel is great and in general the stay was nice. However, the room I stayed was not very clean and it looked as if they had not been taking care of it much for a while, it also needed some rennovations, particularly the bathroom. There were some stains in the bathroom, I asked the staff to give an extra clean up to the bathroom but they did not, even when they say they did. There were also some stains in the carpet. It was a very hot week and the AC was not working properly. Breakfast was okay but could be better, there were not a lot of options.

Light switch is on a weird position on the head side of the wall where the pillow will accidentally press the switch. Room was dirty and lack of basic amenities like comb, laundry bag.
