    It was a nice hotel. The heat was on and it was unseasonably warm outside so the room was quite warm. I left the windows open but when the cleaning crew came through they closed them and the room got very hot again. The hotel overall is nice. It could use an extra cleaning in some areas and a little fresh paint in others, but overal a nice stay in a great location.

    Great hotel

    I have only good things to say about this hotel. If you are looking for a nice place to stay in Iaetwon this is the place. Do not even bother with the hotel 5 min away next to the metro station. This one is a million times better.

    Great location

    Great location and close to all the hotspots for entertainment and eating. Not a place to stay if you want peaceful and quiet night. It would be nice if there were USB outlets to charge portable devices.

    I think the hotel is such a unique place to stay. I really enjoyed the lobby area. I won't give away any details besides it being pretty cool. The rooms have different pictures on them depending on the type of room and maybe the floor you are on. We stayed in one with a leaf which was cute. The bathroom has to be the best part. The bidet was nice to have, and the shower had the rainfall shower head which was so nice to use. There is a club I believe under the hotel so we asked to have a room higher up which helped. The only thing was there was construction going on and the noise was pretty distracting and made it hard to sleep. But* we just happened to have been staying while this was going on, so the noise won't be a problem if that construction is done. The staff all spoke English well enough to understand any concerns or requests we had. Some spoke better than others but they were happy to help regardless. One staff member named Bob was very enthusiastic and I looked for him specifically when I needed some help. There is a restaurant in the hotel as well as a Godiva cafe. The restaurant is like asian fusion. It was good, the bulgogi soup I think is that it was, had noodles like in a pho dish, that was really satisfying. The location is great! I would keep this hotel as an option if I ever travel back but it is close by to shops, restaurants, convenient stores, etc. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay here and I highly recommend it!!

    Room furnishings and decor is modern. It’s clean but Carpeting needs shampooing. I smell cigarette smoke and probably That’s where the smoky smell is coming from though My room says non smoking room. Overall it was a good stay.

    Hip and trendy hotel in the heart of Itaewon

    Great location, hip and trendy decor, and wonderful housekeeping staff. Front desk is solidly helpful when needing to call a taxi, and the gym is decent enough to get a simple workout in ( think dumbbells and weight plates for barbell workouts, one treadmill). I recommend staying on a higher floor ie 11 or 12 due to muffled noise coming from the club on weekends located on B1.
