    Ideally located for nightlife and only a few minutes walking distance to the metro station. Clean and lots of electronic gadgets in the bathroom and room. Would come back again to this hotel.

    You cannot open the window

    The lobby design

    Yes, there's no NON-smoking floor (or Smoking floor). Although the whole block of the building indeed is non-smoking, but guests are out of control and they smoke secretly. I can smell it in my room from time to time through the centralized air-con system.

    Superb

    Brand new refurbished hotel , Very nice modern art decoration , Confortable rooms ,Large flat screen TV , Close from subway station (300 m) , easy to find . wifi is available in the room (with passwod). Laptops are available for rent . I am not sure if computers are available for free in the business center . Very good location .

    price is a bit higher than other hotels in the area , but still quite nice .

    The service was efficient with receptionists who spoke good English and were courteous and friendly. I arrived in the morning around 10 and yet they allowed me to have an early check-in without having to wait till the afternoon (which I really appreciated as I had had a long journey). The location is even excellent- the Itaewon metro is within walking distance and so do all the shopping attractions. For Muslims, the Halal foodmart and restaurants are nearby and you are spoilt for choice. It is easy to reach from the Incheon Intnl airport as you can take Shuttle Bus 6060 Gate 7 Floor 3 (journey 1hr or so) and you are just steps in front of the hotel. Every 20 min there is an Airport Shuttle bus to the airport from in front of the hotel with a fee of 15,000KRW (approx 15USD). Indeed convenient!

    Friendly staff, nice decor and great location.

    The corridors are so dark its almost like a black out during an air raid

    The hotel just exudes an air of clean comfort mixed with a myraid of colours that simply lifts up your mood.

    I didn't like the swings in the lobby. They are creative, but they spoilt the ambience and look out of place.

    Fabulous

    i liked everything about the hotel. the location was very close to metro station (just down the street), it was very clean, had an unique interior, staff were competent in english and were friendly at all times. we also had a problem with our toilet one morning and they sent up a plumber within 5 minutes of telling them the problem.

    Very good

    Many restaurants close by. Perfect place to catch airport bus - it is right at the front of the hotel!

    It's not too far from the Subway station but it is quite a bit of distance especially when it rains!

    Quirky, cute hotel - good value for biz & holiday - great location. Yes, as other reviews have commented, the corridors are very dark... it kind of amplifies the lightness of the room! :)

    Very comfortable

    Way over priced. The hotel room was nice but not compared to the price paid.

    Fabulous

    Location - hotel has own stop on bus to airport. Plenty of places to eat etc. on street outside. Great view over the city.

    Room was over designed in attempt to look cool but reduced functionality. In particular the shower had a large head with spiky nozzles at a low height which you could easily hit your head on and wash- basin ends up spilling water everywhere.

    Fabulous

    Very good location and interesting design of lobby and rooms. People and staff were ver friendly. The restaurant offers very good lunch and dinner buffet. Bus transfer to and from the airport just on the doorstep.

    Maybe it tries a bit too hard to be a "boutique" hotel and some things are a bit over the top. Showers in bath room were a bit small
