Fabulous 8.8 From 427 reviews

Very good 8.0
First Myeongdong Review
Good location helpful staff nice breakfast
gb5 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
The room was very clean and the room cleaning service was excellent. They restock us on amenity everyday. The bed was super comfy and the blanket was like sleeping on a cloud. The hotel smell great and the elevator was quick and smooth. The staffs also helped us call the taxi which was so helpful because the language barrier was a huge problem when trying to communicate to the taxi drivers. Hotel is not too far from the shopping district like a 5 min walk away. The only cons are that the pillows are too flat so I got neck pain in the morning and the lowest temp in the room was 25°. Regardless of what temp you set the control setting is ultimately up to the hotel. Overall We would come back again. Ohh and the coffee shops near the hotel is soo good

Exceptional 10.0
Very nice and clean hotel, good location
Overall a nice a clean hotel. Everything was great. Very new and modern feeling to the hotel. Clean and good service. I would be sure to ask for a quiet room because it seems that during busy times, it may get loud. But overall, everything was great. I would definitely stay again. It's also less than a five minute walk from a popular strain station

Very good 8.0
Good for the price
Really good price for the location. The first night however the temperature in my room was at 28 degrees, even though I had it set at 20. Had to go down to the lobby at 2 in the morning to let them know. It did seem better after that. That's my only main complaint. Everything else was fine. Even a half decent workout room, just need heavier weights.
