8/10 Very good

The hotel is very nice and the staff was wonderful! The bed was the traditional hard mattress and not very comfortable. You have a choice between a Korean or Continental style breakfast. There are many restaurants, shops, and things to do in the immediate area. The one major complaint we had was the air conditioner drained into the bathroom. This is not unusual in Korea but the water did not run straight to the drain; it pooled around the drain and we had a pool of water in the bathroom by the sink and toilet.

깔끔하고 직원분도 친절하세요 그런데 오래되서 그런지 환기를 해도 담배냄새는 안빠져요 화장실 냄새도요 제가 냄새에 민감해서..그리고 스타일러 사용했더니 빨래 안빤 구리구리한 냄새가 옷에 배겨서 아주 별로에요 보일러는 따뜻해서 좋았어요 대신 침대는 딱딱합니다
