    It was cute, the balcony has a good view of Namsan Tower.

    Be warned-- there are spiral staircases.

    It was relatively cheap and easy to be there.

    I had no hot water and when I told the management, not complaining, just to let them know, they told me I was wrong and argued with me about it. At night and in the evening I ran the water for more than 10 minutes and both times it didn't get warmer than lukewarm. Also there was no one there to check me in and by the time I found someone they didn't know how to do it properly. To her credit, she was really lovely and did a great job with everything else.

    Good location, quiet place, beautiful view from the terrace, not far from Mount Namsan.

    Everything was super, except for wai -fi, which was necessary for me to work. , I had to run with a computer and catch the signal.

    The rooms are spacious and the bed is comfortable and there are a lot of convenience stores and restaurants nearby. Though it is a bit hard to find it for the first time, there is a video on YouTube so we could follow the instructions.

    It is a good walk from the station.

    Staff was very kind (they talk English very well). They have some suggestion about where to eat, or some famous places around South Korea. Location was fine, close to a metro station and Seoul Station (I think was 15min walking)

    I don't have nothing to complain about, since proce was very cheap.
