Awesome stay, quiet room, everything I needed (except an iron) with a great shower and overall sleek clean bathroom design. Busy breakfast, with lots of options from sweet to savory and everything in between. Definitely not the most "local" stay in Seoul - there's smaller neighbourhood accommodations with a lot more traditional character and historical beauty, but this hotel makes international travel approachable and seamless. Great helpful staff.

Awesome location! In town for a business visit and hotel is literally steps from the station not to mention just one train ride albeit 60+ minutes long from Incheon airport.

Loved our stay here! The hotel room was very clean and felt safe, and the staff was very friendly too. The hotel is also located right in front of the station which was very convenient and was within walking distance to hongdae shopping street. The hotel is also connected to a convenience store at the bottom floor which was very convenient too. Would definitely come back again for the location! :)
