The hotel is designed by the world-famous architectural firm Michaelis Boyd. The internal design embodies the vigorous integration of multiple elements. The industrial style of concrete and brass is combined with the bright pink floor, and the artistic fresco of the external wall and the unusual suspended sculpture in the hall show the extraordinary artistic air of the hotel.

Some suites are specially customized by the creative artists, including photographer Laurent Segretier, the collage artist Charles Munka, the Seoul artist Yeojoo Park who applied shadows and colorful film to illustrate the space and multimedia story writer Maekan. These "artist suites" showcase the vivid individualized characteristics and strong aesthetic atmosphere, which echo the youth culture of Hongik University.
