The room rate here is around 100,000-880,000 won per night, depending on the room type and time of booking.

The room we stayed in was a Twin Room, which was about 90,000 won a night with a promotion, a good price for the extremely popular area.

The room contained all the amenities needed and even though it was not very big, it was well organized so the space was used effectively.

If you bring valuables, you can store them in the safe for your peace of mind.

Also luggage can be stored under the bed so that it doesn't take up precious space.

On the head of the bed there is a USB port to plug your chargers into.

The bed is comfortable, but for tall people, their legs may hang off the end.

Because of the small space, the sink counter is located outside of the bathroom, which is actually very convenient because you can brush your teeth and wash your face while the other person showers.
