    Ondol Room is a traditional room that is mostly preferred by Koreans. It has floor heating to keep the floor warm during the winter season. The word ONDOL means "warm stone" in Korean. Since Koreans are used to sleeping and sitting on the floor, a hotel without an Ondol room would be incomplete.

      • Just loved the location, wonderful hotel staff and good for the money. Best western Korean style and friendly service. Free internet is a bonus.

        Noisy bbq parties on the terrace keep guests in the rooms awake.

      • The location was good too, the room was normal size for a hotel in Seoul and the service was satisfactory, staff were very friendly helpful. Amenities in shower dispenser smelled great.

        The breakfast buffet has limited variety of western food.

      • I liked its location, near mapo subway station and good restaurants in the vicinity. The hotel was clean, comfortable, staff were friendly and the room rate was very reasonable making an excellent value.

        Furniture seemed to be a bit dated, the breakfast is poor too.

      • Good location to visit Seoul and cheap taxi ride away from Hongdae. The hotel lobby is nice, for the price one paid would be better to choose something that offers much more and staff is friendly. Room is clean and quiet, elevators are smart and modern, the food is just alright for me.

        Low quality breakfast and furnitures and toilet too old style. Expensive sauna and no pool no break fast.
