A week in Seoul

Overall service, personal touch, location, price, accessibility
7.3
We stayed at this hotel during the 2nd week of November. We travelled to the hotel by airport limo bus from Incheon airport where we alighted at Chang Deok Gung bus stop along the route, Hotel is very close to Hotel Ibis which is a very good landmark. From the bus stop walking with luggage it took us 10 minutes on foot. People working in the immediate neighborhood seemed to know the hotel as well and were helpful. When we arrived in the lobby, Mr Oh, the front desk manager has been waiting and expecting us. Check in was fast, and Mr Oh was very helpful answering our questions on where to find a cheap enough lunch 2 minutes away. During our stay, Mr Oh helped us on Subway information, getting around, while Mr Baek, the owner took us out to lunch one afternoon - this was a nice surprise for us. Both of them and also Mr Baek's wife spoke good English. The breakfast room in at the basement level, with bread, butter, jam, cake, juice, tea, coffee and eggs. ( you can steam the eggs in the micro wave and if you like the egg steamer, you can also buy it). Making friends with the cook made things nicer since she shared some kimchee with us one morning. The location was good. Basically walking distance to many sights nearby, including Insadong Street that was full of souvenir shopping and places to it. There are grocery shops nearby in addition to the subway line. Will we return - yes..

Nice budget-hotel in good location

Great location
7.3
The hotel is a nice budget hotel in a good location. The room: clean enough, but there are spattered bug bodies all over the walls and window curtain, the comforter needed a good wash, and the towels were hit or miss if they were truly clean or not. Fast enough WiFI Breakfast consists of toast, a small pastry, and hard-boiled eggs. Note on getting there: from Jongno-3-ga station on line 5, take exit 5 (4 if you want escalators, then turn around and go to 5), and cross the intersection. Directly across from where Supyo-ro hits the intersection is a large and busy alley. Take it to get to Samil-daero. Make the first right onto Samil-daero 30-gil. Make the first left (onto the street right before the Ibis hotel). And the end of the street is a staircase on your right. Take it and go left, and the hotel is right there. This will allow you to avoid walking all the way up Samil-daero and around the school which isn't much fun if you have heavy bags.

Comfortable, rooftop terrace, ideal location

Comfortable firm beds, close to vibrant neighbourhoods and still a quiet hotel, rooftop terrace is a big plus. Ideal location: close to subway, restaurants, shops. Friendly and helpful staff
9.3
We had a very pleasant stay at hotel ICON. The rooftop terrace is a big plus! Nice view over the city and the mountain. And ideal for smokers. We called it our 'living room'. The rooms are basic, clean and comfortable. The beds are very firm and comfortable. Good wifi in the rooms. The shower is typically Korean: hanging over the sink, but nice and hot. A small fridge, free water bottles daily. Aircon and floor heating (we needed both during our stay!) function well. The breakfast is very basic but of good quality: boiled eggs, toast with butter and jam, croissants, coffee/tea. And there's a Paris Baguette around the corner, as well as a small supermarket. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. To help us find an address that we didn't know completely but where we were supposed to meet people, the receptionist called around for us and gave us perfect directions. The hotel is ideally located: in walking distance of the subway, restaurants, shops, Insadong and Bukchon Hanok village. And yet situated in a quiet street which means quiet nights! On our last night the couple who own the hotel took us and a few other guests out for a Korean dinner at a unique restaurant. They were the perfect hosts!

Value for money, great service, great location

The owner Mrs Jung makes all the difference. If help is needed, it is rendered. Mrs Jung drove my family to the bus stop at 5 am.

The hotel is very basic and bed is very firm(which I like) but very clean. Towels changed and rooms cleaned daily. Breakfast is basic but what else can you ask for given the affordable rates Hotel Icon offers.

Our first visit to Seoul

Convenient location. Clean. Best suited for individual or couple travellers.
6.3
It was pleasant and very close to many tourist attractions in Seoul. Subway station is just 5 minutes walk away. We always come back to a clean room and can't help but notice all of our clothes were being nicely folded. Thank you also for the complimentary yoghurt drink! Room for improvement include mini kettle in the room had a dirty water pitcher (hence we resorted to the 2 bottles of complimentary mineral water daily supplied by the hotel). Would consider this accommodation for future revisits.

GREAT LOCATION

Location, clean rooms, friendly staff

We needed a hotel for one night in Seoul. The Hotel Icon has pro's and cons: Pro's: Clean, good location for bus to Incheon, Metro, palaces and sights. Nice neighborhood. We didn't have any problem finding the hotel. Cons: Our room on the 200 level was very noisy….every time a person entered at night the main door below made a chiming sound. Rooms are typical Korean style….very very firm mattresses and tiny room, which was not a problem as this is what we expected. Overall, the Icon is good value for the price paid and we would stay there again but would ask for a room on a higher level.
