Overall good
Really good location, a little noisy in the evenings. No room service and need to take 2 elevators to get to your room (one to the lobby and then a separate one to your room). Staff is super helpful and friendly

The location is in heart of Hongdae. If you are looking for entertainment in Hondae area, this hotel should be your first choice. Parking is 10,000 won with in-and-out privilege. Staffs are super nice. Room is little small, but has everything you need and very clean. We had trouble with slow drain sink, but technician came within 15 minute and fixed it. There are tons of places to shop and drink and have fun. Super convenient with subway and buses. Highly recommended if you want some fun, and need comfy place to rest.
