Looking for a short getaway from Seoul for your winter romance? Staying in the outskirts of the city doesn’t mean that you have to rent a room in a shabby love motel. Although the Lee Design Hotel, located in Yongin, is just a short drive away from major attractions such as the Korean Folk Village and the Nam June Paik Art Center, you won’t want to leave the building once you set foot inside. Boasting a “cozy and unique” concept since 2012, the hotel was built by BND Architecture, famed also for their Hotel April, JS Hotel and Urban Hotel. The rooms include two types of penthouses, two types of garden rooms, the Duplex, Premium and the Standard—all designed in a European aesthetic with an industrial concept. All of the rooms come with sleek, dark leather furniture, Yamaha audio system, laundry service and Simmons beds. Each of the rooms is visually appealing and the dimly lit corners don’t hide a speck of dust (the hotel is well-reputed for its cleanliness). The industrial concept is especially recognizable in the Duplex rooms where gray bricks line the walls and the steel stairs lead up to the sleeping loft. With the white bedding, maroon and gray cushions in the bedrooms and freestanding oval-shaped baths, there’s still enough softness to each individual space—making it easy to cozy on up.
