Seoul’s Gangnam district will soon welcome a new, unique stay for young socially-conscious travelers when Hotel Cappuccino opens in November. Situated in Nonhyeon-dong, the hotel sports a casual minimalistic look with a total of 141 rooms that include the Quad room, which features comfortable bunk beds for those traveling in a group of four, and the Bark room, where the hotel welcomes dog lovers traveling with their pet friends. Its 18-storey building comprises three below-ground floors, and the hotel is equipped with a fitness center, function rooms for events, as well as a laundry room. Among its dining venues are the Hot Eatsue restaurant and a rooftop bar located on the 17th floor, where guests can enjoy a view of the city over a variety of local dishes and cocktails.

Hotel Cappuccino has also teamed up with a number of organizations as part of its efforts to ensure a continuous contribution to the society. Its Earn & Giveaway program ensures unused amenities by guests during their stay are donated, a collaboration with local organization OTCAN allows guests to donate clothes, and it also works together So Car, the Seoul Metropolitan Government’s official car-sharing service, which is available for hotel guests. A portion of profits from the Bark Rooms will also go to KARA, a local organization that helps care for stray dogs.

“Travel is an important part of the modern lifestyle,” says general manager Susan Lee. “The millennial generation, in particular, is highly interested in Shared Value, and this interest is reflected in travel, too. Based on these trends, Hotel Cappuccino was created to offer a lifestyle destination combining the embodiment of these values with affordable prices. We may not be a big hotel, but we hope to contribute to joint corporate-social development.”
