To start my review, I had to begin with this is a LOVE hotel. The owner might want to rebrand it to normal hotel, but the layout, the room overall is only focus on one direction, is LOVE hotel. But to be fair, I shall review it without prejudice. 1- This is STAR hotel, where it doesn't have it own lobby, is just a shabby ground floor no bigger than your living room (maybe smaller most bungalow rooms) but it is connected to the next building ( STAY HOTEL GANGNAM ). That is what I believe a more family friendly hotel compare to this one. The staff at STAY hotel till check you in , take care of the room key and payment etc... 2-Room size is decent, big enough even for family of four. But. the room is a king size bed, a 50 LCD tv, and a two person bath tub,. No issue with size, but the room ceiliing is mirror .. :D.... very good if you going for a love session, not so happy when you trying to sleep with family and keep seeing your own reflection while trying to get some sleep. But after two night, it doesn't seem a problem at all 3- Cleanliness. This hotel need a lesson in basic clealiness, not sure about LOVE hotel practices, but I strongly believe basic cleanliness should be uphold at all time. They fail, but after my complain, they did come back again and thoroughly clean it again. After 2nd time they merely meet basic but its acceptable. 4-Location. This hotel location is superb. It is almost just right beside YeokSam Metro Exit 3, which come with escalator and lift as well. Few dozens eateries within walking distance, and at least 3-4 convenience store open for you at 24/7 5-However, to get from YeokSam to most other tourist attraction, please reserve at least 15-25 minutes of metro because is right beside Gangnam which is south of Seoul 6-Price, this hotel room per night is really a gem in Seoul. That is why I book for my week long holiday to say a huge $$$ compare to stay in the hot spot area. 7-We feel very safe in this hotel neighborhood. 8-Staff fast acting, and respond to our request does help for me "softer" review. Kudos to the staff. 9-Free wifi, and the wifi speed , when people say Korean has the best internet speed, they are not joking about it. Superb Connection ! 10- In this room , they got a split unit air condition. Thanks god, I really so happy when I see one in my room, because most hotel have central conditioning which is poorly control and I really glad this cheap hotel come with one .. hahaha To end this, I will not recommend it fairly to most people, but to budget conscious travel, its worth to explore this hotel as an Option As me anything if you have any question !

(1) Great LOCATiON. Just 1 block to the Yeoksam subway station's exit 3. (2) Fast WiFi. (3) 4 Convenience Stores around you. (4) Small WiNDOW. Look at the photos. A bathtub big enough for 2 ppl to lie in. No view. No News channels (no CNN, no BBC). Mostly Korean programming. Makes me wonder if this is a "love hotel". Please click "thanks" if the photos were helpful. Room 504 in the district of Gangnam.

The first staff that we encountered on checking in was a bit unprofessional and not helpful compared to the other guy when we were checking out. Towels were not enough for two even though we have 2 beds that can fit five people. The hotel was at the back of the main street where a lot of bars and restaurants are everywhere but they close as early as 8pm. Convenient for accessing subway trains and airport bus is just across the street. They do not have toiletries except for shampoo, conditioner and bath gel. That's it.

I stayed in this hotel for 8 days. Location is the biggest plus for staying in this hotel with the Yeoksam subway line Exit 3 just 30 meters away and Limousine bus stop just 50 meeters away close to Exit 4 of subway line. The main drawback of the hotel is rooms are spacious but no enough cupborads to store dress especially if you have to stay for 1 week. Overall value for money...

Good value for price. Looking a little worn, but clean room, convenient to amenities. Room was warm with little ability to control the temperature. Opening the window resulted in a noisy sleep with partygoers leaving the restaurants at 2-3am. Otherwise, great location.
