Have you seen a cafe that has different themes on each floor and the hotel looks but it’s not? Here’s a place where you can hang out with your friends.
Hotel Seine 호텔세느장 is one of those cafes that can be found in the downtown of Seoul, Ikseon-dong exactly. This is an old hotel which is renovated into a cafe and bar. Built with 6th floors including a rooftop and a basement with a unique and awesome interior inside and a red carpet outside the building.
The cafe became more popular because guests can find traces of the Korean drama “Hotel Del Luna”. Here it goes my chingudeul.
Hotel Seine 호텔세느장 x Hotel Del Luna Experience
1st Floor: Lobby
The first floor is the Lobby, don’t be fooled but this is actually where you order and pick up your order. The Concierge, a front desk style is where the baristas and waitresses actually work. While waiting for your order you can able to look around inside. The cafe’s concept is something new and creative actually, that’s why a lot of customers visit all the time.
Right next to the counter is the bakery where you can buy pretty cute cakes for at least KRW 2,500. Other cakes are placed on the counter and it cost around KRW 8,000. The coffee costs around KRW 5,000-6,000 and the non-coffee, ade, tea, and smoothies cost around KRW 6,000-7,000, and the beer costs around KRW 8,000 per bottle. The desserts and drinks might be expensive from other cafes but it’s actually deserved the price because it’s really delicious.
2nd Floor: Cake Factory
Cake Factory is on the second floor, where they baked the delicious cakes of the cafe. While customers can enjoy their foods and drinks in a cozy hotel lobby-like theme with a lot of seats and a bedroom-like space too. On the right corner, they have the Hotel Del Luna space where you can able to take photos with you and with your friends.
3rd Floor: Art Salon
A living room can be found on the 3rd floor of the cafe and it’s called the Art Salon. The design of this floor is similar to the second floor with just different colors and artistry.
4th Floor: Full Moon Lounge
This floor is the Full Moon Lounge which you can find on the fourth floor. There’s a balcony too where you can enjoy your drinks and desserts while looking out at the beautiful sky (the night view is perfect and romantic) on this floor. In addition, Jang Man-wol name means “full moon” in English.
5th Floor: Rooftop
The rooftop usually opens at 6:00 in the evening up to 12 midnight because it’s commonplace for parties. It’s a cozy place where you can able to relax and chat with your friends while having a small drink of beer or cocktails.
