This is a five star hotel.

Hi. I was listening to some music earlier this evening. "Make me wanna die" from "The pretty reckless" is pretty cool. The lead vocal, Taylor Momsen, is actually an actress who plays the role of Jenny on The Gossip Girl. How talented is she! :)

-짜리 is used when you want to express the quantity or quality of something. It carries the value of the object is equal to the quantity in comparison. But depending on the context, it could mean that either the object as cheap or as expensive. For example,

A: Your bag looks so expensive.
B: Not at all. 이 가방은 만 원짜리에요. -> This bag is only 10000 won.

A: Your bag looks like a fake.
B: No way! 이 가방은 백만 원짜리에요! -> This bag is as expensive as one million won!

More examples:
이 아파트는 방 두 개짜리에요. -> This apartment has two bedrooms.
이 사과는 얼마짜리에요? -> How much is this apple?

Check out this and this for the counting ways.

Bye for now.
