We stayed at Hotel Bonbon during our stay in Seoul this time round. Scott had stayed at Hotel Bonbon before, but couldn’t remember its name besides the fact that he loved talking to the owners. To his delight, we spied Hotel Bonbon situated right across Lotte Hotel when we lodged there the previous week! How serendipitous.
Word of caution: there’s no elevator, so those with huge heavy bags might want to beef up. The owner’s wife attempted to lug our medium-sized luggage up to level 4, but she was smaller than me and I felt really bad while she attempted to do so at her insistence. I managed to steal it back halfway because she was too winded. I’m stronger than what my stick arms suggest (probably not by much, but still).
