Modern, spacious, comfy, high tech Junior Deluxe
Posted Dec 18, 2016
Our room at the Charis Hotel was great. The bed and pillows were quite comfortable enough for my American taste. The description said "full size" bed, but it was really a queen size. The room was extremely clean and non-smoking with no smokey smells at all. The bathroom was very modern and high tech with an overhead rain shower plus handheld shower, jacuzzi tub, and high tech toilet with heated seat and washing features. Big sliding wooden door to enter the bathroom, with separate glass doors on the left and right for the shower/bath and toilet sections. The sink/vanity were in the middle section and you can see into toilet and shower sections. There's a window to the bedroom but there is a magic button for privacy glass. Room fridge kept things nice and cold. Hotel staff were extremely nice and helpful, although most spoke very limited English, or none. All in all, we were able to communicate enough. There isn't a concierge desk like some of the larger hotels in Seoul have. The subway was a short walk and easy to navigate even though we spoke no Korean. Took only 45 minutes to get to the heart of Seoul. Convenient "shopping mall" right across the street with an amazing clean modern grocery store and drug store on the bottom level. Mall has everything; toys, books, lots of great clothes, nail salon, food court. Starbucks, Burger King, Dunkin Donuts, and 7-11 are also across the street. Would definitely stay here again. Breakfast buffet was also good.
