    I likethe idea of every room having a different theme and it’s one of the reasons I picked this hotel. I thought the layout of the room was very clever and enjoyed my staying there. I would have liked more spots for drying bath towels, but that’s it. Other than that the people on staff were polite and nice and we had a nice stay.

    I travel regularly and tend to go towards this brand because of my first experience with them. I have gotten one room that I asked them to change because it was dirty and wasn't worth what I paid. They obliged me and were very friendly. I appreciate the steps they're taking to ensure the safety of guests in the current climate. I will try to find their locations when I travel.

    Great value for money, but.. you get what you pay for”

    Booked the designer room not the basic room. I had a good experience. I could stay there again. But I would try somewhere new before returning there. Pros Staff was great. location was great Room art style was great. Bathtub was very nice (except the lat night) phone charge Cons 1. No hot water my last night. Warm water yes, but not hot. I payed extra for a Bathtub. The tub was nice, but the lat night I couldn't use the bath because the water was too cold. Took a shower instead, but couldn't stay in for too long. Not warm enough. 2. Breakfast is very basic, It would have been worth paying more to have a better meal. Also if you arrive after 9am most of the good food is gone. 3. You can't adjust the heat in your room. if it's too hot you need to open a window or turn on the AC 4. I slept well, but some people might not. the Bed was unusual for a hotel. Mattress with a mattress pad on it. The frame seemed to be a wooden box. sometimes it made noise when you rolled over.

    Location is about 10-15 mins walk from samseong station. It was quite cold (between 2-10 Deg celcius); did not expect to walk quite a distance in the cold. Upon reaching, the staff on duty was slightly unfriendly and wasn't of any help when we asked what are the recommended places to eat while we wait for check in. Upon check-in, the room that we stayed in has a round bed and bath tub. Pretty satisfied with the design of the room. Water heater is working well. Room is quiet enough for peaceful sleep.

    Location is good, But It doesn't look like hotel.”

    Their bed is really bad. There is some weird smell in the room. Their facilities are poor.

    Good Designer Hotel”

    I knew of this hotel because of Channel Soshi TV where Girls Generation Taeyeon filmed in one of the rooms. That’s why I booked the designers suite. They have a lot of different room designs so I wasn’t expecting I can get the exact same room that Taeyeon filmed before. But I was very very lucky!!! The room is Assimilate with Nature if you wished to specify for it. Staffs were very attentive and helpful. Near Samseong station and COEX Mall. Slightly pricey for one person but I think the price is very reasonable for 2 or more people. Room amenities is awesome. Would gladly be back again to check out other room designs if I travel to Seoul.
