    The hotel located in good location you can find a minimart around this hotel like G25, 7-11 and CU mart. This hotel is near subway line no.1,5,3 at Jongno 3 station and they are also near Anguk station exit6. They have many restaurant and cute café opposite hotel. The room is fitted for two persons in double room but I don't like their bed because the mattress is too soft including pillow. The amenities in bathroom are bad because they didn't provide anything just only shower gel and shampoo. I think they should have more like shower cap, cotton bud, etc.

    Highly recommended, reasonable price, clean facility. However, you should be noted that most of amenity are not provided due to eco-friendly policy. Body & hair shampoo, soap only. the toothbrush, paste shaver are not provided but you can buy them GS25, 7/11 neighbour of the hotel. Spa, fitness included. Plus, it's not that close to metro station but just right next to Insa-dong street and Iksun-dong alley.
