      We stayed for 5 nights in hotel irene city. So far we are satisfied with the room. It has an average size for the 2 persons based on an asian standard. The room and bathroom are clean. The linens are fresh. In terms for vicinity, convenience stores, restaurants, and bars are just around the hotel. Though it is in the city center, Hotel Irene City location is kinda hard to locate to the nearest train station which is Hoehyeon Station exit 6.

      Absolutely the worst hotel.”

      Not only was there no window, but my room didn't get cleaned once for the entire 7 days. There is no staff on the front desk because of "covid", covid regulations were lifted a long time ago from South Korea so that doesn't make sense at all. The room was so tiny that I couldn't even properly walk to the bathroom. For the money I have been to actual hotels and good ones with actual staff and windows.

      Avoid at all costs”

      The most sus accom ever in my entire life. I never reckoned I would’ve been this dissatisfied ever… it actually made me pay extra costs and move to another hotel. They didn’t even have a staff at their reception and another door-locking tool other than the card key, so they could defo come inside the room if they had the master key. I was so bloody frightened to the point I had to go to another hotel with not getting any refund from the hotel. Plus, this can’t be deemed as a hotel it’s rather be called just a sleeping place. That’s all if I may say so

      I have stayed here for 2 weeks due to a business purpose. I got a room without a window but it was cozy and good enough to accomodate myself. For a long stay, there is cleaning service on every Monday and Friday, but you can visit the front desk for your daily water bottle supply, toothpaste&brush, towels etc. At the 4F there is a small washing machine but you need to ask the availability of hanger as there is no drying machine.

      직원은 너무 좋은데.. 손님 응대보다 자신의 업무가 급한 사장님.. 프론트에 있는데.. 전화기를 넘어서 널리널리 퍼지는 사장님의 목소리에 앞에있는 저희가 부끄럽더라고요. 직원을 하대하시는 사장님.. 그러지 맙시다. 직원분 힘내세요!!
