It was not so long ago that Hillary Clinton was relishing her status as an icon among young feminists, who cheered her resilience to political attack, her use of her stardom to advance the cause of women worldwide, even her trademark pantsuits.

Decent views if there's no smog but not worth the cost of admission otherwise because you won't see much. Definitely avoid if there's a long queue to get in.

Very close to the green subway live and the Myeongdong market. Great breakfast spread. Free potable water. Some rooms may be uncomfortably cold in winter but they'll provide a space heater on request.
