The fan is there for a reason cos the air-conditioning moves like an old man. If you put your fingers near the ventilation, you'd be lucky to feel a faint, slight movement of air. Of course it didn't help to complain cos all rooms were the same & we didn't want to go thru the complexities of language with the hotel staff.
All the basic amenities were there including the hair dryer, although my favourite auto wash toilet funtion wasn't there.
Emergency flashlight in case of power failures.
Emergency ropes for climbing down the building in case of fire. I am not kidding.
I guess that's what you probably need to have when all the rooms are smoking rooms.
This was really in a more suburb Seoul where you could see school children walking alone, people sitting outside their shops minding their own business.
The hotel staff spoke some English but not fantastic enough to completely understand one another. The rate was about 80,000 won (RM240) BUT it apparently did not have any non-smoking rooms & the room was slightly old & dark in their decor. It's basically clean but it was just too smoky for non-smokers like us. But they gave us an air purifier when we requested for one, & that really helped a lot!
So yes, we'd recommend this hotel if you'd need the convenience & the free shuttle service to Gimpo airport. Otherwise, there would certainly be better hotels in Seoul.
And so we slept the whole morning, woke up around noon, & were on the go.
