  • The Plaza itself is nothing special, what makes this place is there is always something going on. Markets, shows, exhibitions. If you are around drop in and see what is going on today. 
  • Go hang out in the spring and autumn outing, holding the only protest day picnic Bento go we need you to go learn to show the damage go

  • Very luxurious and inexpensive compared to other hotels, 100%would stay again. Also they speak English very well if that matters to you.
  • Fantastic hotel situated right in the heart of the city. The location is excellent, with easy access to City Hall station and Myeong-dong via the Sogong Underground Shopping Centre. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful. Definitely one of the best places to stay in the city. However, the room rate is on the high side and the rooms are rather small.
  • Very stunning view from top of the hotel facing the mountain and blue house. Many touristic sites that can be reached by walking. The room is not big but enough space. To set the light, open or close the curtain, set alarm, set temperatur, are all in one touch screen monitor. City hall and Seoul National Library arr right in the front. I enjoyed my stay here.
  • Very good location in the city center. Close to two subway lines. From here you can walk to a lot of places. Hotel is comfortable and very nice style.
  • Great location. Outstanding service and great breakfast. Would definitely recommend for someone interested in staying in the city center. The rooms were very modern and with a very comfortable duvet. Plus awesome shower glass window opening into the room.
