Ho W. Business travelers China, December 14, 2012
Very Convenient Hotel

Close to City Hall and Central Station as well as major shopping area
Very convenient place and close to the shopping area... It is very nice if you like to do shopping in Korea... Particularly when it is under X'mas Sales.. This hotel is very clean and easy to access. But the room is very small and no place to true around... but for shopping and short stay.. It is a good choice.

Lovely hotel and great location

Great location, friendly staff, convenience
loated near to the city hall subway station where city hall station just one station away from seoul station (seoul station is a main station where all the metro meet, ktx, metro to air port, korail...) less than 10 min walk to the hotel. lotte duty free shop, lotte world by metro only 30 min. most famous shopping paradise, myeong dong just within walking distance, can reach by walk underground. isadong(korean traditional market) also just few station away from city hall station. some sightseeing attraction just located beside the city hall. the only things to be concerned is irene city hotel entrance lacated at the back of the street, it is quite unsafe to back too late. some compliment, the hotel try to upgrade our room from standard to triple room foc. although we did not take it, but we appreciate such arrangement.
Shopping Tip: Accross the road there is a local market which sells dry and wet goods. Most of the local people shop there. If you like some small souvenier such as ear ring, hair deco, necklace.... You might get surprise in there. It just across the road from irene city hotel, try to ask the reception

Nice & Tidy Hotel, but small

the hotel is located in buk chang dong, which is located just next to city hall. all the gourmet restaurant is located near the hotel. however, the area at night time, the bars and clubs located and attract the people, so is not good for the familly travellers. the room is little bit small, but pretty new and clean.

Convenient Location but small rooms

New, clean, modern and well kept
My 2nd time staying in this hotel. Location is very central. Close to the palaces along Gwanghamun, Insadong + (Bukchon Hanok village is a bit further away but still doable), city hall subway station, the famous city stream, across the street from Namdaemun & Shinsegae as well as Lotte departmental store, Namsan park + tower and of course Myeongdong. It was a toss up between here and Hongdae area but I chose this place again because of sensible location. You're really paying for the location only. The rooms are new, clean, modern with heated floors and are very well kept. Hotel has a lift with key card access. Room service on a daily basis with fresh towels, toiletries and I appreciate the safe in the room. Windows only available for single twin rooms and not standard double rooms. The only thing that may be negative is that there are a lot of nightclubs in the area and a lot of solicitors on the road at night. I have spent a total of 20++ days here between 2 trips and although was approached, never really felt threatened. Just kindly say no thank you and they move away fast. Take bus 6015 or 6011 from Incheon Intl airport. Get off at Namdaemun market. U need to cross the street, backtrack untill u see a bank and take a right. Go untill u see a GS25. Bus stop to hotel <10 mins. Take down the address, use google map under satelite and go to street view. U can't see the hotel but it's along the same row as GS25 and next to Y house. Enjoy your stay .
Restaurant Tip: There are alot of restaurants in the area in Bukchangdong. U can also venture into Namdaemun market if you want more cheap + good food. U really have to wander into the alleys as the row of restaurants are not visible from the main rows of the markets. Expect to pay around 8-10K Won per serving. The noodle shop opposite the GS25 is really cheap though just 3-4K Won. Great breakfast spot if you're rally hungry. Forget the hotel breakfast. U didn't fly a few thousand miles to Seoul to have toast for breakfast. Remember to be adventurous as ordering your food is nothing less than challenging. Be prepared for a lot of pointing and sign language.

Great Location and room but no curtain in bathroom

Great Location and room
Great Location (10mins to main shopping area, 5mins to metro) Clean and good room but it's strange that some rooms do not have window- curtain in bathroom (that means outsider can see what's happening inside the bath room) though the view outside is quite far. Due to the full booking, we cannot change to another room. We tried to stick the towel on the window to resolve the issue.

Obscure Hotel, in city central.

Location, quiet, clean, daily cleaning
Bed/sheets/pillows were clean. Bathroom was clean, there was a tub. There was a daily maid service, which surprised me because I thought it was more of a motel. A/C Flat screen tv. Location was 5 minute walk to City Hall Subway station. 10-15 minute walk to Myeongdong and Namdaemun. Starbucks 2 minute walk. Staff was friendly Room was very small. The location was real random, down an alley, that at night could feel intimidating to some. It was near many restaurants and bars, so expect to see many drunk people at night. However, noise was not a problem. At this time, there is construction going on, and it did cause a problem with the elevator (Hotel is located on 3rd and 4th floor). Also, there was noise due to the construction. I do not know how long this will continue.
Shopping Tip: Myeongdong and Namdaemun are 10-15 minutes walk.
