4/10 Fair

Very disappointing
First of all, the location could not be better! It is a short walk from lines 2 and 4 and close enough to the main Myeongdong hub without being too affected by the noise. Unfortunately, that was really the only positive I had about staying here. I had to wait in the reception while the worker behind the desk showed guests around which wasn’t very necessary. The rooms are extremely tight which was never much of an issue but, because there are no windows, it was far too warm. We were not allowed to put the air con any lower than 25 degrees which didn’t make much difference and people would switch it off through the night. The bedroom light also stays on throughout the night and the curtain does not do a great job at blocking the light so I did not get a full nights sleep for the entirety of my 4 night stay. My biggest negative would be that the

6/10 Good

The staff could not speak English, so communication was difficult to solve my issues. I was confused about the description at the last exit to walk to the hotel. The description says explicitly 'turn right ' when leaving exit 5 but in fact I should have turned to the left. Before I realized this, I crossed a big street and I needed to ask people about the way to Calistar. was confused. The location itself is crowdy so that is almost impossible to get a seat in restaurants around. Very good is the transportation system. But you need to know where you are and where you want to go. There is a special app for this to support you.

2/10 Poor

Note: Double room / Twin room has NO WINDOW. My work mate checked in first and I realized that the room have no window at all. I did not wished to make any issue since I visited Seoul for work not for leisure so I did not make any complaint. However, unlike its photo, the room DOES NOT HAVE ANY WINDOW. And trust me, having window do make big difference in terms of your breathing comfort. Plus, you can hardly see front desk person when you check-in. (My work mate checked in at 7PM and there was another group of people whom waiting for front desk person to show up) Later 10PM, I again found another groups of people whom waiting for Front desk person to check in.

Extremely good location. Unfriendly hotel staff. No proper cleaning of room after each day. Small room, but rather functional. Stay here for the location, nothing else
