    Exceptional

    Great location! Just about 15 steps from the airport bus stop at Toyoko Inn and 10 steps from the Dongdaemun subway station exit #4. Plenty of restaurants and shopping at the nearby Dongdaemun area (walking distance). The owners are very hospitable, speak good English, and very willing to help. The single private room with the bathroom included is quite small but clean. The size of the room is just enough for one person (as listed) and a carry-on luggage. The bathroom includes a shower-head hand-held nozzle although without a tub, the water gets all over the toilet and sink (close the bathroom door while showering). An LCD TV is also included as is WiFi throughout. A common kitchen and laundry machine (with powder detergent) is also available. All in all, a great budget place to stay in a great location for solo travelers.

    Very good

    Well the place is very hard to find at first. Easiest way to get there from Incheon is by the airport limousine bus 6001 and stop at Dongdaemun Historical and Cultural Park. If you are getting there by subway you should stop at Dongdaemun Historical and Cultural Park and take exit 4. The signboard is pretty unnoticable so look up hard and you will sure to find it. Just stare harder or ask the people around. I travelled with a friend and we booked the single room (each of us got a room for ourselves). The place is pretty modern and suitable for those planning to splurge on shopping since it's just 5-10mins walk to Doota (cheapest place to get souveniers for friends back home), Dongdaemun shoopping distric and fashion town. In term of cleanliness is quite ok, they have a pantry on level 3. However the pantry could be rather disgusting if the person(s) staying there didn't wash up their plates and mugs. Hey Jun-i guess you better put up a sign to impose additional charge for anyone not cleaning up after their mess. Well, the other thing is the awful smell of uncleared rubbish. Other than that is pretty good place to stay. Mr Bong and Jun are also very kind to direct our taxi driver when we got lost the first day we arrived in Seoul. Hmm the contact no given by Booked.net is wrong. Luckily my friend saved the picture of the Hotel signboard from the website so we managed to call the right number in the end and Jun picked up the phone. They also arranged for the free shuttle bus for our ski trip to Jisan which is nearest to Seoul. In overall the place is very2 very good in terms of location. But too small for a family stay. Some whom are used to living in a home with a room of their own might feel that the room is the same size as their closet (i kind of feel that way too). I guess the size is around 7 by 8feet- this include the closet, bathroom and bed. Hmm and the room at the end is pretty cold. I would suggest middle room since it's really warm.

    Fabulous

    The location was perfect, couldnt ask for a better location,about a few min stroll to the Dongdaemun market, and plenty of little stalls along the way. The rooms were very clean but cramped, but with the market so close you probably wont be doing much in the room anyways.

    The room was very small, basically a small carry on would fit but thats it.

    The location is very good, just 1 minutes' walk from subway station. Even the room is small, I think it's good enough.

    the air conditioning is a little noisy at night

    Guest rating

    The location is convenient. Near subway station. The airport bus in front of Toyoko-inn Hotel which is next door. The staff are friendly.

    The whole place is smelly, though they did have perfume.The room and bed is very small. The Hi-Fi internet doesn't work well. There are insects in the room.
