The view was great, the hotel was clean and modern, the bed was comfortable, and the staff was friendly! It’s in the same building as a shopping mall and it’s basically connected to the subway station and streets of Hongdae, so the location is perfect!

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room was clean and spacious. It was enough for one or two people to stay in. However, the door that closes on the shower and bathroom tends to make the water go all over the place. There should be a better way to stop the water from getting all over the place. Other than that, I had a comfortable stay.
