  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I was so surprised at how nice this place was! I had a bath tube that could have fit 6 people in, the bed was fairly comfy for an Asian country and the property was just about 5 min walk from the subway and all the hustle and bustle that hongdea has to offer! I will always stay here when in Korea. And it was super cheap!
