Location was good and easy to get anywhere in hongdae, haepjeong and sangsu, need to work on cleaning rooms, very dusty and the counter had something sticky, easily taken care of with wet wipes. Sometimes the bathtub is a part of the room so keep that in mind if you are booking with friends. Staff was super friendly when we spoke with them, slightly nervous I think about speaking in English but I am never bothered by that. Building next door is under construction but that’s not the fault of the hotel, but be warned if you are a light sleeper in the AM.

I LOVE the oversized bathtub in my room. The coffee machine wasn’t working at the Humming Bella coffee shop / bakery shop. Tea was available though.
