Must stay at if your in Dongdaemun
What I gathered from my 2 weeks stay. I really enjoyed the room decoration as they changed the decoration every few days. They had a very friendly but fun feel. The owner was very nice and helpful. This hotel offered so many amenities like: free coffee in the morning, washer in room, and even a free phone to use for when you are away from the hotel. The only problem I had was the bed was a little to hard for my liking. I wish the hotel would have put some kind of mattress pad to soften the bed up.

Convenient Stay for Family in Center Dongdaemun
We were with 4 adults and 3 teenagers and had plenty of space in the large apartment, suitable for our 2-night stay. Ms. Ponny the owner connected with us via email and later an app and was very helpful with given directions in Seoul, even assisting us to with public transportation. Plenty of towels, a mix of bunker- and kingsize beds. Easy to find as it is right behind a gigantic eMart and Starbucks (1 minute walk!!), though Ponny's Unicorn has also a nice cozy coffeeshop by itself, which functions as the reception to the around 15 or so apartment rooms. It came very handy that Ponny and her small team speak English very well, and communicate around the clock for anything needed, being very friendly and helpful. We walked in about 20 minutes to Dongdaemun Market & clothing shopping malls area. Ponny also assisted in calling a large van who drove 7 of us with huge luggage safely to the airport for Won 100K at 7am. We would surely recommend Unicorn if we return to Seoul and need a large family room.
