The reception is from 8 am - 12 midnight. Try to arrive before 12 otherwise you wouldn't be able to checkin in case you'll be arriving later than 12 mn....

Zaza is located up a small hill opposite the vibrant Myeongdong Shopping Street. The room, though small, was clean. We planned to travel to Busan and Jeju and back to Seoul but we didn't want to carry our heavy luggage around. So Zaza offered to safekeep our luggage in the room and that really helped lessen our burden a lot.
