It was really comfy and pleasant to stay at this hotel. It has strategic location from subway station to bus terminal. You can find a lot of good restaurants and 24 hours minimarket besides the hotel. The breakfast was super delicious and complete. The room condition is clean and compact. Everyday the staff can take out your trash and change the towel regularly. I hope I can visit the hotel again on my next trip to Seoul.

About

South Korea is a country in East Asia that covers the southern part of the Korean Peninsula. The country is called Hanguk by South Koreans.

Korean history begins with the establishment of Gojoseon in the 14th century by Dangun. The three Korean Kingdoms of Goguryeo, Baekje, and Silla governed Cape Korea. Later, the struggle for the Korean Peninsula ensued and for the first time was successfully unified by Silla in 676 called the Silla

Unified. However, United Silla collapsed in the late 9th century due to domestic unrest.

Until in 1392, Taejo founded the Joseon Dynasty. The Hangeul alphabet, which is now the official letter of South Korea, was created during 1397-1450 by the Fourth King of the Joseon Dynasty, King Sejong. The seizure of Korean land by Japan occurred in the 1870s until Japan surrendered in 1945. In 1945, North Korea and South Korea separated, and each formed a new government in 1948.

The capital of South Korea is Seoul, officially known as Soul Special Metropolitan City. Seoul is the largest metropolis in South Korea which is located in the northwest of the country.

Not only that, South Korea is also famous for Kimchi, which is the country's global specialty. Kimchi is made from fermented vegetables using traditional South Korean spices.
