HOTEL BAROATO – SEOUL CITY

Conceptualized with the use of uncovered mass concrete, wood, metal and glass-interior finishing materials, Hotel Baroato provides the experience of a modern Korean living.  Literally translated, it means upright (“baro”) gift (“ato”).

The hotel is strategically located, being a few distances only from the Hongik University subway station passing by artsy cafes and restaurants and no need for line transfers when going to and from the Incheon International Airport.  The challenge is, it is specifically situated in one narrow alley, although still manageable.


ROOMS

There are six room types in this hotel.  These are:  bunk beds dormitory for male and female, double room, twin room, triple room and Junior Suite Family room.  With an industrial type interior design, the accommodation feels more homey and comfortable not to mention the spacious area it offers.  Click to check other room types and rates.

We were reserved in a triple room that comes with a double bed plus a single bed.  There is a Korean style bedside cabinet as well as part of the ornaments, with a dressing table, vanity mirror and a chandelier.

The room comes with a free breakfast.  But being bordering to a hostel, of course breakfast is not the same with the usual buffet offerings.

SERVICE

With English-speaking receptionists and staff, there is no difficulty on raising concerns and even for asking directions when intending to go to a particular destination.  There’s less encounter actually with the hotel’s staff as you get to mingle more with the co-tourists, like a hostel.  But when needed, service is excellent and staff is definitely of great help.

There are common areas in the hotel and the rooftop dining area is a good one to lounge.
