Forget about boring hotels where the mini fridge is the most fun thing in the room, Song Minsu, gives you rooms carefully decorated with different themes with slides and swings that will make you never want to leave the room.

Adorable little characters scattered throughout the interior make the place warm and inviting. With a mini library, dedicated play area and toys, your little ones are going to feel right at home at the child-centric Song Minsu.

If you ever get bored staying in (we think not), you can borrow a bicycle from Song Minsu and go for a scenic ride with your little ones.

We advise you to book the rooms in advance if you are planning on staying at Song Minsu, probably months in advance as the rooms are limited to five.
