              Classy Hotel”

              Hotel itself is a typical old classy hotel . I like this type of hotels such as Chosun and Sejong. Compare to other classy hotels in Seoul, this hotel has smaller rooms and beds. Staffs were just okay not as welcoming or accommodating like other classy hotels. As far as the location is concerned, this can either be inconvenient or daring due to awkward access to public transportation. Hotel bell hops won't even try to help you get a cab. They just tell you to go out on street and find one. This hotel is geared towards those who are brave enough to drive in Seoul. If you are not driving, look elsewhere.

              Nice and convenient location. The hotel is clean and the rooms are quite big. Some good restaurants around the hotel (street at the back). Breakfast is a bit disappointed but there's some coffee shops and bakery around the hotel so good to go out.

              The hotel is really well-located in a wealthy area of Seoul. The hotel is old but it's still decent. However, the hotel air conditioning was too dry and the central air heating wouldn't turn off so my skin was dry and irritated during my stay there.

              Overall it was nice. Inside the hotel things cost a lot though. To sit in the coffee shop and relax with some morning coffee costs almost twice as much if you took it out. I got room service one day, a coke was not on the menu but i thought it cant cost too much, $12!!!! For a coke!!!! Shame on me.

              It was a pleasant hotel. First impressions were good, with a welcoming lobby layout. The room is standard sized but the channel selection on TV was impressive. The worst thing that can happen to you is to land in a country where 99% of the channels offered are only in the native language. Breakfast was at about USD25 but well worth it as the spread was a good mix of Western and local foods. Where else can you find barbecue pork ribs for breakfast?

              The room was reasonable size. Free wireless in the public of the hotel.
              1O mins walks to nearest subway. Not many shops or eateries around.

              The hotel is served by Airport Limousine 6010. It stops right in front of the hotel. The location is not that great. It takes 10 minutes to walk to Chengdam Station which is served by line 7 metro. Some korean restaurants around the hotel but they are not used to foreigners. So it was difficult to order food. If you intend to do sightseeing around the city center, then I would not recommend this hotel. It is very far out. For instance travelling to Myeondong took roughly 1 hr necessitating chnaging from one metro line to another. I was a leisure traveller, so this did not bother me. The room was clean and reasonable size.

              Airport express buses stop right in front of the hotel, so it is very convenient going from and to the airport, and it takes only 50 minutes. The distance to the nearest subway is about 300 m, a pleasant 7-10 minutes walk. Located at a distance from most tourist attractions, and a lot of times I had to take 3 subways to go, e.g., Myeongdong, Dongdaemun, or Itaewon. Shoppers may not like it. However, it is only 2 stations from COEX. Staffs are friendly and flexible, I asked for late check-out and got it fine.

              Prestigious Hotel in Isolated Gangnam suburb - Australian Review.”

              This prestigious hotel was located in the outer district of Gangnam. Very isolated ~ far from everything ~ hotel restaurant/buffet is pricey, room service food is 50, 000 won per person. Taxi Services : NIL. You have to catch your own taxi. They dont book for you. Outside hotel available (sometimes). Airport Services: ONE BUS. Airport shuttle bus @back of the hotel given at designated times. No other option. Closest public transport : Subway station. Closest one was 45min walk to a Gangnam (GREEN LINE) Subway Station. FOOD: Small E-mart convenience store ACROSS the road. The road is a MAIN ROAD so you need to go through TWO pedestrian crossings to get to the other side. OTHER FOOD:The hotel does not allow Delivery food services to park at the front of the hotel. You have to meet the delivery guy at the back of the hotel 3RD LEVEL FLOOR; Car Park Area. The closest restaurant is a min. of 50,000won per person. But if you want to go to a "shake shack" burger 45min walk.

              Good location in Gangnam, Seoul”

              Even if the nearest subway station is around 10 minutes walk from the hotel, it is actually loacated in the center of the Gangnam in Seoul. Bus stop is right in front of the hotel and it's easy to catch taxi. My wife and I enjoyed the stay for the purpose of participating the year-end parties occurred during the weekend. In-door pool was also a great plus.
