Reasonable price with good location
Not luxury, but clean and attractive price. Walkable distance to the shopping malls.

Good Value For Money
I stayed at this hotel with my family during our holiday and it is a good value for money. Clean room and good location. The only thing need to be improved is that the staffs should be able to speak more English.

2.5 star hotel
My family of 4 stayed in this hotel for 3 days (12/7 in 15/7 out). Pros: The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The staff are polite and speak sufficient English. Cons: Rooms are small. There is no closet and basically no space to put the luggage. Breakfast is too simple and local. There are a couple disappointments. First, we chose the hotel because it listed a "fitness center" in the web. But the fitness center has only 2 old treadmills and an machine with a belt---no clue what's that for. Worse yet, it was closed for repair on the day we checked in and next morning. On the third day morning, it opened. I ran the treadmill for 17 minutes and both treadmills suddenly stopped together. I noticed the front desk. Next morning, I checked it again, only one treadmill could be turned on. I didn't use it again, who knows when would it stop. Second: I borrowed two sockets from front desk on the first evening. The staff told me that I had to deposit 10,000 won for each which would be returned to me when I return them. (I had been to numerous hotels, this is the first time.) When I checked out, I returned the two sockets with the room keys. I was standing there thinking there was something I forgot. The front desk lady looked at me and told me something like "you are finished". So I walked away thinking that the English language is tricky. Then I recalled the deposit on the taxi. I sent them an e-mail to ask for the deposit money back either by depositing it on my credit card or send me a check. They replied that they could not put the money back on my credit card or send money through mail. The only way to get my money back is to visit them again. I don't understand why!

Price is very reasonable. Good service from staff. Staff are detail-minded. Location is a bit far from the shopping centre and railway station i.e. 10-15mins walk. Deluxe twin Room is big for family. Overall is satisfactory.

We started out our Korea experience at one of the cheaper "motels" that was claimed to be an amazing option for the money. Horrified by the standards we sought out sanctuary for a clean, quiet and non decaying place to stay. The summit was a welcome savior being exceptionally clean, quiet, and centrally located to absolutely most everything you'd want to do in Seoul. Subway stations were a 10-15 min walk, close to multiple markets, art districts, close convince stores and coffee shops to walk to, as well as a very accommodating and professional staff. (English secondary but fluent and easy to work with)

Hotel centrally located
Good sizeable beds which are excellent for family with older children. Near to metro stations & Dongdaemun shopping. KAL airport bus stops at doorstep of hotel. A very good Korean restaurant across the road.

Great location and friendly receptionist
the summit hotel located is very convenient as we can travel around with 2 different subway lines (the hotel is in the middle). we are able to shop around till late night around the APM mall and good morning city and walk back in a short distance. so you do not need to carry your shopping haul from far to the hotel. believe me you will buy alot of stuff in korea!
