I like this hotel because it's easy to get around. It's within walking distance from the US embassy and Gyeongbokgung castle. It was a rainy day when I wanted to run some errands nearby but the hotel provide umbrella for me and my family. The room is clean and the right size for a short stay!

The hotel has a modern atmosphere with clean accommodation. I stayed for 4 days and the staff was kind and it seems like the hotel owner has a sense of what travels need for a foreign country stay. The wall outlets have their own converter from 110v to 220v. I stayed the first two days in a room with the basic option. It had a tiny tea table which was difficult to work with so I upgraded the room for extra 5 dollars. That worked for me as the room has a desk and a desk lamp. Overall I enjoyed the hotel at a great price.

The accommodation was taken by chance. I really like the clean bedding and quiet facilities. Mobile is very convenient because the subway line 5 has been rejoining. The street is nice and it has lots of government office. It's safe. I recommend it.

This hotel's breakfast restaurant is famous for its high cost-effectiveness and a good menu for its breakfast, so we've enjoyed it a lot as expected... Hope to come bake to the hotel sooner or later...
