Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Room was small but fairly clean with fresh sheets, no bad odor, a desk, free Wi-Fi, hair dryer, and a separate kitchenette stocked with essential pots and utensils which were nice. Main sleeping area had a washer & dryer combo unit in the built in closet. I did not use the kitchenette or the laundry machine during my week long stay but it would have been nice for guests that may have use for them. There were no other amenities to speak of outside the room but I knew this before checking into this 'residence' type facility. Room service came by few times during my week long stay to clean the room and to restock with fresh towels but no soap/shampoo.

Biggest issue I had with the Blooming House which I learned the hard way during the first two nights of stay was that my room was infested with mosquitoes. Returning to the room late first night jet lagged and tired, I was kept up good part of the night constantly being harassed by all the bites. Next morning and upon returning to the room late that night, I made sure all the mosquitoes were terminated. During the process, I noticed close to dozen squatted mosquitoes in the various spots of the wall & ceiling telling the story that previous guests must have suffered the similar fate during their stay throughout the summer. Windows had no screens on them and they must have gotten in when the house cleaning was in the room to clean and air out the room.

Without the mosquitos, overall rating of Blooming House would have been a 2.5 stars (Fair) and considering 'performance to value' factors, a solid 3.0 stars (Good) but due to all the bites/harassment & squatted blood/mosquito spots on the wall, it drops back down to 2.5. Rating would be even lower than 'Fair' range if the mosquito problem would have persisted beyond the first two nights of stay but since rest of the stay was fairly pleasant after some serious mosquito termination, I would rate the Blooming House 2.5 stars out of 5.0 considering all factors including but not limited to facility, location, service, price, etc. etc. Would I go back? Sure but...I will have to think twice during May~November (my stay was in mid-October) unless Blooming House installs window screens or some kind of anti mosquito repellant device(s) in the rooms to keep the mosquitos out without using the harmful chemicals to breath in.

fully equipped place (equipped with a washing machine and complete cooking utensils) and very strategic position, near to yoeksam mrt station and bus stop. if you want to the mall and want to find halal food is also not too far away. in front of the inn there is a minimarket and there are selling korean typical food as well. just highly recomended.

We booked up this residence to allow us to spend time with my son who is working in Korea. Having researched the accommodation before I was pleasantly surprised by what we found when we arrived.

The room is well equipped with a small kitchen fridge/freezer and microwave kettle and washing machine a real bonus during our stay.

Location is good really close to the underground station and gangnam a vibrant part of the city. Daily cleaning of the room is very good and plenty of of space to store your cloths.

Down sides .. the mattress is very hard not comfortable at all and you do need to ask for extra pillows and coat hangers, the wet room/bathroom is a little cramped but quite functional I suppose.

Generally a nice stay good location and staff are quite friendly clean room and all you need for a stay in this city. My only personal down side is the distance from the airport over an hour and twenty by car and the General cost of eating and drinking which was more expensive than you might experience even in London.

Overall appearance was good. The rooms were good enough for two persons. Fast Internet was included in the price. Near the subway station in Gangngam district. Good access to COEX and Gangnam Station with lots of restaurants cafe and pubs. We loved it.

Clean and conveniently located near the subway.
It's really a studio service apartment with little or no service.
- On approaching the hotel ( check in at 10pm) there are couple of 'bums' in front of the hotel foyer. One is lying on the bench smoking the other one is playing with a stick or a baseball of some sort. Turns out - one of them was the front desk check-in guy / manager. Nice.
- Toilet is v small - you basically shower next to the sink! There's a hose that feeds from the sink tap - and that's where you shower. Good thing is you can brush you teeth while showering. And the next person using toilet gets a free foot cleaning coz the floor is all wet.
- Stated for 4 nights and was provided with hand towels to use as bath towels for the entire time. Front desk keeps saying they've run out. What ? 4 nights in a row ? Also the towels needs a slight touch of massive bleaching
- Bring your own shampoo and soap. 1tiny hand soap - you know the tiny little ones - provided and that is it. This is sad. Had to run to 7-11 next door to buy a travellers pack. This is a hotel - at least give me a cheap sachet of body wash or something..
- Had to check out at 630am to catch and no one is there. We simply left the key on the unmanned front desk and walked out. But that's fine coz they didn't take our credit card details on check in.
- The in room free wifi didn't work. Didn't bother complaining coz we had our own pocket wifi.
- No available electrical socket anywhere near the table lamp. ( used up by the phone and the wifi router) fortunately the wifi is useless so we unplugged them to make room for the table lamp.

Overall impression: if this is sold as a hostel or pension, I wouldn't complain that much. The basic service is just not there.

I stayed here in January 2014 on a business trip for 18 days. Overall the hotel (technically small, serviced, apartments) is really nice, extremely well located and definitely worth recommending. I stayed in a twin rooms with one of my colleagues, and whilst the room was rather small and didn't have any view (this being crowded Gangnam, after all!) it served us well. The rooms were very clean, all the equipment worked well (including the bathroom and kitchen appliances) and, crucially for Korea, the AC worked well! Also, the kitchen was well equipped, despite it's small size, with a cooker, fridge, microwave, cupboards along with all basic kitchen utensils and pans.

The staffs comprehension of English was fairly poor, but I was working with several Koreans so this wasn't a major issue. However, they were very helpful whenever an issue arose.

The hotels location was perfect. It is 1/2mins away from Yoeksam intersection/subway station, which is on the (in)famous line 2 which takes you all around Seoul.

I have very fond memories of this trip and Blooming House certainly played a part, as it was a very relaxing place to return to after work. If you're happy with small rooms and no amenities, but a very comfortable bed, I would recommend trying this one!

I love this hotel because the room was very convenient. It had a small kitchen with stove and oven. They even prepared pans, plates and dishes for the guests. A washing machine also stood in the closet. Though the room is truly small (no extra space was left with all the things inside), I felt really comfortable living in it.

I stayed in Blooming House for 4 days. Room is very small, around 17 m2. Bathroom is around 2 m2 so it is really small. When you take the shower the whole toilet is wet. There is a small kitchenette in the room and 32 inch tv on the wall. There is no chair in the room. Some cupboards cannot be opened since too much stuff is placed in the kitchenette. There is a microwave oven fridge in the kitchenette. Rooms are cleaned every day and they are clean. There is a washing machine in the room and you can get free washing powder from the reception. There are few restaurants in the area but they are costly. I recommend to take a subway to Gangnam and eat there. Housekeeping might come to your room without ringing the door bell when you are still sleeping in the morning around 9 AM so don't sleep late. Don't stay in this hotel.
