Day 1 - dinner and sleeping time

Since we had already arrived late here in our hotel.  We checked-in on the 19th floor as it was where their reception was and rooms were from the 10th to the 18th floor.  Reception speaks good English, that's good as it made the check-in process much easier.  But there is one thing that spoiled the evening, the receptionist told us that only the smoking rooms were available and that we had to stay on them for tonight, so we really had no choice and he offered us to change rooms the next day.  When we got to the room, there was really a heavy smell of cigarettes and I really hate it.

I did a mistake of not reiterating that I wanted a non-smoking room.  So, be reminded when booking for a hotel room anytime, anyplace be sure to reiterate on the remarks your request for a non-smoking room. 
The rooms were small but just enough, since most of the time we will be outdoors.  Why did I book this hotel though.  I researched TRIP ADVISOR, and this was on the top 10 list of hotels in Seoul and also one of the cheapest since we are quite limited on our budget for this trip.  One thing funny about this is that they don't have toothbrushes and toothpaste free for you.  They do have a vending machine if you need to though, but why bother just bring your own.
After much deliberation we decided to head out and look for a place to eat.  Looking for Korean Restaurants that were still open that night.  We stumbled upon this.
And it looks so yummy we ordered Pork Bulgogi at 12,000 Won and 2 rice for 4,000 Won.
What's fun about Korean Restaurant, there is always a no. of appetizers to munch on before the meal.
Kimchi - really spicy
Eat if straight up dipped in onion sauce
Or do it Korean style wrapped in lettuce and their tasty Korean paste
It was a cozy place to have dined in
