Older hotel in a good location
Posted Nov 10, 2016
When I first booked my reservation, I was wary of the previous reviews and wasn't sure what to expect. Reviews were mixed between good and horrible, so I prepared myself for the worst.
Expedia had a great deal, so my family and I went for it, knowing we wouldn't be in our room except for sleeping anyway so even if the room was a disaster, at least we weren't going to be there a lot. But when we checked in (they accommodate late check-ins, our flight got in at midnight!, and the hotel staff speaks mandarin!), the check in process was brief, and we went up to our rooms. The hallways are kind of small with four rooms on each floor. We booked two rooms, and they were both surprisingly clean. Sure, the walls could use a new coat of paint, but the room was spacious with comfortable beds. My only issue was the layout of the bathroom, could really use a towel hook or a shower curtain that didn't stick to you while you were showering. But there's a jacuzzi, big mirror, and a good amount of table space.
The hotel itself is on a smaller street with lots of restaurants, places to drink, and street vendors. It might not be appropriate for families with little children. It can get pretty loud at night if you sleep with the window open, but there's definitely lots to eat if you're a night owl or wake up in the middle of the night hungry. The hotel is a great location if you're looking to shop at Myeongdong, and it's close to different subway stations which makes it easy to get around.
