    ideally located and very clean Hotel with all facilities a traveller can ask for . Except a cup of coffee is very expensive at cafe almost AUD15 per cup it was a very pleasant stay . Very friendly staff and very shining Hotel premises. Incheon Airport shuttle bus stop is across the street ( 2 minute walk) near Hotel Lotte which is very convenient .

    Dumb business decisions ”

    I booked a 4 night stay at a “long stay” rate and then upon arrival asked about extending my visit for 3 more days. The price quoted was double the rate I was paying. The hotel is average, at best, but worth it for the discounted rate because of the location, cleanliness, and fitness center. For the higher rate, I found 6 other places that were nicer. Also, skip the overpriced breakfast - again, there are many, many options within a block that are much better and less expensive - there was literally plastic wrapped “American” cheese on the buffet ... gross!! I’d only recommend if you get it for a very discounted rate.

    Good location”

    In general, the hotel has good location and very convenient. However, the air-con was not working they did not informed me upon check-in. Initially, I thought the air-con in my room was faulty but was later told on the phone that the whole building's air-con was under maintenance for 2 weeks. It would have been better if I was informed upon check-in of such details.

    Impeccable front desk”

    My daughter left her passport at a hotel in Pyeongchang snow resort just a day before departure to Spore but front desk staff Mitchelle and others discussed with me in the wee hours how President Hotel can help to retrieve the passport and we got it back, excellent. Location is good only 5mins walk to airport shuttle bus stand and 10mins to famous Myeondong night market. Those with children would enjoy the hotel spacious room size typically bigger than many others in Seoul.

    No air circulation in the room”

    Rooms are old and ageing. I booked 2+ person room but when we checked in could not get extra bed. They let us change room on the next day with bigger bed but had to pay extra per day (33000 won). When we got into the other room, all the switches and everything’s in the room was really old. And no ventilation in the room. It was so hot we could not sleep. They gave us a fan to use. But not much use. Even with all the window open, still too hot. ( outside temp was around 10 degree and below)

    Overall very good. Although staff English is not fluent, they are helpful, especially the housing keeping staff is extremely helpful. Location very good (center of the city and next to Lotte Hotel/supermarket). Transportation for underground/metro (1 min walk to one of the underground exit) and airport (4 mins walk to the airport coach station) is very convenience. Room size big enough. Free upgrade. Room overall clean. 10-15 mins walk to MyeongDong (but need to know the way to walk through those underground shopping streets, like SogongDong underground street.).

    1) Location is great. Many tourist sites are accesible by foot. 2) Traffic is terrible. Use public transportation except taxi Taxi drivers are not kind even though it was call from the hotel. 3) A bakery shop in the first foor was great. 4) My booking was made because it said triple room but it was twin room +extra bed. 5) hotel is old building but everything was fine to me. However if you like fancy, modern style than it might not be for you. 6) house keepers are so kind

    Solid option for business travel”

    This hotel is well located in the 'old' downtown of Seoul. There is a bus-stop right outside the hotel for a special bus that goes to Seoul-Incheon Airport in about 70 minutes, which is really helpful because taxis there are very expensive. Hotel is nice enough, standard fare for a business type hotel. Nice breakfast.

    Decent hotel right next to Lotte Myeong-dong”

    Location is very convenient, right on the left of hotel you can go to subway station, on the right there's lotte myeong-dong. Just walk further down and you will reach myeong-dong streets with all the cosmeticshops and food etc. Hotel room heater is sometimes too warm, and the room service staffs are not exactly friendly. If that doesn't bother you much, then I think this is hotel is pretty much recommended.
