Una habitación acogedora y tranquila (genial por su precio). Super limpio y con un personal de 10, muy cerca del centro (unos 6min en bus) y con la parada en frente. Sin duda repetiríamos :)

직원분 정말 친절해요! 청소 매일 해줬고 이불 교체는 요청해야 해주는 건지 모르겠으나 교체는 없었어요~ 방 깨끗하고 해도 잘 들어와요 집 주변에 식당도 많고 마트도 가깝고 센터도 도보로 이동은 가능 해요. 대체로 만족입니다~
