Back to the past..

Location is good if you are willing to walk and explore. Plentiful of food and convenient stores nearby.
Hotel rating is overated given its current state of condition. It has long past its glorious peak, hotel location is good, in between Myeongdong and Seoul stations. Walking distance to many places. Hotel is dated with musky smell and heavywooded furniture, staff are not exactly foreigner friendly. The corridors are dimly lited. Room size is good, but everything else remains in 70s or 80s. Shower curtain has turn mouldy and yellow. No bath mat and anti slip mat provided in the bathroom and bath tub. In-room slippers appear disgusting. There is only 2 usable power sockets in the room. No air-conditioning available in the room, only warm air. You have to open the window to let cold air in. Staff will bring you a fan if you find it warm. Air-conditioning is only available at lobby. Hotel lift cannot take more than 4 persons together, the overload warning will come on. There are pimps around the hotel in the evening soliciting. Most Korean hotels do not provide toothbrush and toothpaste (some do give toothpaste though).

Average and old style Hotel decoration

Location is near to eateries
Hotel decoration is typical and average. Room had a funny sweet smell which fortunately fade off the second night. Bath room is small and basin is low (FYI, I'm 1.74m). I was surprised to be charged 2,200 WON for 2 bottle water which I thought were complimentary (i.e. standard arrangement). Although that wasn't much I felt the hotel had been un-cleared on the chargeable items.

Rex is King...not really

Location, housekeeping, convenience
It was ok...location is right off a main artery street in Seoul, it was close to metro entrance, nearby to Namdaemun Market and Shinsagae Department Store, right on the border between Namdaemun and Myeon-Doeng, sorry for spelling errors. Housekeeping left towels near my door when daily cleaning was not asked for. Convenience closely tied to location, but there were so many shops, restaurants, transportation right outside the door. All really good to have. Oh, great internet service (with room), but this is typical throughout Seoul (free). However, the let down was in the listing on Agoda, they claimed to have Laundry and Dry Cleaning services, both of which were not true, when asked the front desk replied that I'd have to go out and look for a couple of places nearby, no map or directions. I don't read Hangul so reverted to looking into windows that looked like they did laundry or dry cleaning, which are a must for a business hotel. Couldn't even get an iron on request. It was a good experience maybe for a tourist, but my stay there was definitely for business and cannot afford to be without these services, and were the very reason for selecting the hotel in the first place, well aside from location.

Value for money

Location price comfort of room
Good location with short distance to subway. Myeong dong is just a stone throw away from Shinshigae. room is of decent size with comfortable beds. tthe bottled waters are chargeable and no complimentary toothbrushes. bath mats should be provided as the floor is wet after washing up or after a shower.

Location. That's the only positive
My stay at Rex Hotel was unpleasant at best. The hotel has the feeling of being transported back to the tackiest part of 1996 with outdated everything, excluding the flat screen TV. Midway through the night our air conditioning in our room stopped working, the hotel staff told us it would be resolved in "10 minutes" and then another 10 minutes, so and so forth for 2 hours. The only consolation we were offered was a fan. The hotel is dingy and not worth the price given Love Motels exist for travelers. Look elsewhere people. This hotel shouldn't be operating as a 3 star with is 1 star service and accommodation.
