  • At Seoul Plaza square on the scene spoke Korean opera singers. Free to good Italian singing opera hits: Aria Duke from Rigoletto, Funiculi Funicula and more. There was no celebration, just singing opera for all comers. When listened, remembered thought Akio 22, one of the founders of Sony, of his memories "made in Japan" after a trip to the SOVIET UNION: "As having such a ballet, it is possible to do such a bad Electronics?" Here the inverse logic: to make smartphones for the entire world and machining center Doosan, it is necessary that the Opera was publicly displayed in the center of Seoul. Though not every day.

  • We are on this square ended up twice and both times there was something fun to do. The first time children played traditional games. The second time there was a traditional Korean circus. With great pleasure we have looked at the show!

  • 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.
