Best Hotel to stay in Hongdae
It was a pleasant surprise to find the room clean and big enough with rooms for luggage. Service was good and with my gold status, they even upgrade and checked us in early when rooms are avaialble.

8/10 Very good

Loved the location of the hotel. Very near metro station and AREX. Lots of restaurants and stores nearby. Though in a bustling area and there was a construction next door, noise could not be heard. Staff are helpful. Will stay here again !

Not bad and I'm not a difficult traveller la
Female receptionists service was great.. i wanted to go Namdaemun but not sure how to use their train, 1 receptionist guided me so well and in so much details patiently.. Everything was ok except 3 things: 1) bedroom slippers is of flimsy and low "paper" quality 2) this is the only hotel which refuses to lend us iron board and iron. The male receptionist was a little rude when he asked us to go to basement if we need iron and told us that we have to pay for it.. ridiculous coz the cheap hotels also provided it, y cant an expensive hotel like this provide us with something so basic?? 3) the lobby is not on the first floor so when we needed to rush back to the room due to either heavy groceries or stomachache etc, we had to get to lobby on 4th floor and then CHANGE lift to go up to our room.. quite inconvenient

4/10 Fair

Disappointed on the service standard
Staff doesn’t have the service mind as we need to leave early so we requested them to prepare a box of food instead of eating in restaurant. They just simply said can’t do and can’t offer anything. They even mention that can’t refund the breakfast cost. We are disappointed on the service standard. Room is quite dusty. Lobby area is so small. Breakfast is not worth to pay (it is a set in weekday - unchanged menu for whole week)
