    Location in Hondae is great, however there are also other areas in Seoul that would be convenient to stay as a tourist.

    Our room had only 1 window to the inside of the hotel, ZERO daylight. The hallway is just outside of that window, which meant that there was no privacy and we had to have the curtains closed at all times as well. This meant the room was dark and we only had artificial light. We were not aware of this before booking and I feel it should not even be allowed to offer rooms without a window to the outside. It was also not mentioned in the booking details. The room was also very, very small and we could hear our neighbor talk and the TV play at night. Breakfast is basic and got very crowded after 08.30 (plus only is available until 09.30). If you want to make sure to get a room with a window to the outside world, book another hotel!

    Location was excellent. Just above Hongdae train station. Right there on the right when you come out of the at no.8 exit of the train station. Staff spoke English fluently, check in/out was smooth and very quick.

    Breakfast crowd could have been controlled better.

    I like location. I like staffs and maids, too. Very nice people.

    Breakfast is very boring. Hotel really needs to improve variety of food. If you stay 1-2 nights, it might not effect you. But if you stay 3 nights+, you might prefer having breakfast at cafe outside. Also, aircon can't be adjusted. I hate pillows, too. Actually, pillow is the worst thing in the hotel (for us).
