Good Facilities, secure and the staff is helpful and nice but the location is a little bit far away from the city center. It's not easy for me to find a place to eat something good. It would be better If the bathroom and the toilet be separated. In a word, it's value for money

Besides, what the metro station already clearly indicates, it's "children's rear park in Seoul", it's wonderful especially to come here in springtime. Within 15 minutes of walking distance from Phil House, you can relax...

Third, the location rocks because it...
