After spending a few days in Itaewon, I wanted a more Korean neighborhood experience, so I found Hotel Tong Vivace in the Dongdaemun district. I paid about $68 for a single room. This is more like a guesthouse, with minimal services. The staff was very nice and spoke enough English to make life easy. They will give you a combination to open the front door (the front desk isn't always attended after 6pm), and a combination for your room. Room was simple, clean and safe. I appreciated the room A/C and really solid wifi. I liked the Korean hustle and bustle and felt completely safe, even in the narrow streets. I don't speak Korean, but managed to get what I wanted when I needed it. So, I recommend this for anyone looking to live amongst working Seoul residents, away from tourists and foreign travelers. Very close to the fantastic Seoul Subway!
I hit my head going up the stairs, but that was sorta my fault, I'm 6'1". The location is a little sketchy...tucked in a very narrow street, that is VERY untouristy. Their map is pretty good, just keep peering down the alleys until you see the City Lights building, then walk confidently into the alley! Lots of rancorous small businesses selling everything from cell phones, to house goods to live eels (which they'll happily BBQ for you right there).
Modern design, comfortable room, good price for a hotel, REALLY helpful and friendly staff, great location (1 minute walk to Metro station), good enough wifi. Controllable A/C in room, comfortable bed.
Could hear guy next door snoring, kinda sketchy short walk from main street to hotel that looks scary, but once you're at the secure hotel, it's fine. Directions are good, just trust them.
really good rocation. we can dicid the room security no. it fell me so secure. room was so clean. the hotel staff was so kind. there are no claim to say. it was helpful for me which is so reasonable, anyway.
Clean is the best
convenient location, staffs are friendly
the lock system sometimes didn't work can hear noise from street and next room
Very conveniently located near subway exit and the airport bus stop.
The bedsheets and comforter are somewhat dusty. Floors are slightly dirty. Can up the cleanliness level on that part.
The owner put up the wrong address on the website. And apparently we were told that there are 5 hotels with the same name. The staffs even asked my friend and I to walk to the correct branch (about 15min walk away).
Room is small but facilities is ok. Metro lrt is nearest.
-Suddenly swap over staying destination to other places. -Environment a bit noisy. -Coridor quite darkness.
Location very near Dongdaemun station Exit 5. Walking distance to Doota fashion mall at Dongdaemun market.
Hotel room is very small. Water heather not functioning very well. No lift in the hotel, so if you're travelling with big luggage is not recommend.
Writing the review for this hotel is difficult. We booked the Tong Vivace but when we arrived we were shifted into the Studio Tong. Its basically a trick that did not sit well with us. Our general feeling is that the hotel trick you into staying at Studio tong by describing it as an annex. An annex is an extra part of a property but studio Vivace is around 15 minutes away from Tong Vivace. So be very aware of booking the annex as you will get a nasty surprise. Studio Tong is down some back alleys and is not safe for solo traveler. As we checked out the receptionist brought up 3 new guests and took them into our room. Now let me explain that we were just closing the door to our room as he came with the new guests. He took them into our room, uncleaned, not made up and honestly essentially still our room. Its the strangest thing I have ever experienced. Whats more our room hadnt been cleaned in our 3 days there so it was dirty and the bins were over flowing. Such strange behaviour doesnt make you feel safe or comfortable in a property. We feel the hotel is run by people who have no clue and generally the clients are young Chinese who do not realise such things are not acceptable or normal.
The location is convenient.
The staircase in the hotel is narrow for travelers with big luggages.
Good location,close to Dongdemun shopping area .
Located just 1-2 min walk to the Dongdamun metro exit 5, Udon Soup noodle selling in the restaurant facing main road is extremely nice and cheap for kw2,500, we can't get when we travel to Jeju n Busan
Room is small
-the location is very good as it is very near metro -staff is helpful -the room is clean
It is great if the fridge can be more bigger
very clean room, free wifi, smiley staff
