Chungbu or Jungbu Market, Dongdaemun,Seoul, Korea

Chungbu or Jungbu Market, Dongdaemun,Seoul, Korea

My hotel Ramada Seoul Dongdaenum is located just 2 minutes walk from Acacia hotel

(where the airport bus stopped). This hotel unfortunately does not have individual heating or cooling system in the room. It is centrally controlled. Every time I feel that the room is too hot or cold, I have to call reception and they have to adjust my room temperature for me. It got to the point that I have to sleep with the windows open and being woken up each morning from the noise in the street.
