Great location and comfortable. Recommended.”

Pros: - direct line from the airport with no stairs, many lines cut through gongdeok station - e-mart just a 3 minute walk away - many convenience stores and food options around the hotel (7-11 inside the hotel) - counter staff able to speak English - room was comfortable enough (not too small esp for Seoul standards) and clean with good amenities (no toothbrush though) - hotel felt luxurious and more expensive than what I paid for Cons: - while gongdeok station can bring you anywhere, there are no attractions per say nearby - because many lines operate at gongdeok, be prepared to walk 5-10 mins to the right platform - linens were not changed for my bed despite putting the change linen cloth on my bed before heading out which was a bummer since I had a relatively long stay Overall a great stay and would definitely go back to GLAD mapo the next time I'm back in Seoul. I’ve visited Seoul extensively and GLAD has been the most comfortable at a moderate price point.

Exceptional and friendly stay”

Couldn’t ask for a better location: right in front of a train station with elevators and in a quiet area, with the hype and food happening if you cross the street. We booked as a Mother’s Day gift to our mum, and I had left a message requesting for the staff to prepare a Mother’s Day card if possible for us as a surprise. They didn’t leave a card. Instead, they went above and beyond: they left a colourful message on the window in bright markers, that we could see immediately when we stepped into the room. My mother loved the surprise. Their creativity and service is just amazing. The front desk is always ready with a smile, and was extremely helpful even with questions not involving their hotel. I am completely blown away by their hospitality. I wish I can take more of their amenities away, they smell really good and comforting. Housekeeping is very neat, no flaws there. I’m very happy to have stayed at Mapo glad and will do so again if I ever travel to Korea! Thank you again Glad Mapo!

Best customer service and great facilities.”

We loved Jeny at the reception desk. She upgraded our two rooms and let us check in three hours early. The rooms were large, comfortable, and well-lit. We really enjoyed the bar. The bartender was fun and personable. The buffet restaurant was lovely. One of the waiters was so kind. I wish I'd gotten his name. My daughter dropped and broke her wine glass. The waiter rushed over and asked if she were hurt. I just love that his first concern was for her well being. She was embarrassed but everyone made her feel like it was no big deal and quickly cleaned up the broken glass. We also stayed at the Seoul Lotte for a few nights on this trip, which was also amazing, but I preferred the Glad Mapo. It was less pretentious and the employees were all just so kind.

Great stay at the Glad Mapo ”

We really enjoyed our stay at the Glad Mapo! The location is perfect — it’s easy to get here to and from Seoul Station/Incheon Airport. The subway station is right outside so it’s very easy to get to other parts of the city. The hotel is also surrounded by lots of great restaurants and coffee shops. Our room was spacious with a spectacular view from the 24th floor. The bed was luxurious and very comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Seoul!

Superb stay in Seoul 👍🏻”

My family and I stayed in Glad Mapo for 6 nights! The rooms were very clean, tidy and most importantly comfortable! (took some photos of our room - Deluxe Family Twin) Staff was extremely friendly and helpful in assisting in check-in and out and also gave useful tips for our trips! Thanks Elena for the great help! They have convenience stores (7-eleven) in their reception area! Super convenient for those who might want to have a maggi supper. Not forgetting that I had went to the gym during my last day before I check-out. I was wowed by their facilities, everything was so well maintained and super clean! They also provides towels and bottled water. Will definitely stay back this hotel when I come back to Korea next time! Highly recommended!!

Glad mapo location is right outside the Train station exit 9 (using airport train) using the escalator. It is very easy to go to this hotel bringing luggage from the airport. And also near bus stop so very easy to go to downtown or uptown seoul. Room, bed, bathroom are comfortable. Overall glad mapo is a good hotel.

Spacious room and convenient location”

Glad Mapo is attached to Gongdeok station exit 9, which is very convenient and close to Hongdae and Seoul station. Room is super spacious and you can fully open your luggage in the room. Our room was just next to the elevator but we found it very quiet. Just a point to note that heat is not adjustable as it had been rainy and was bit chilled at night so hotel had turned on the centralised heating system. Staff is very friendly and speaks fluent English. I would definitely stay here again for my next visit.

1.) Very close to metro station (city and airport) 2.) 1 halal (Indian) restaurant across the street. Bakeries, bagel, sandwich shops nearby that have some Muslim friendly dishes (but not halal of course) 3.) Room has iron and ironing board 4.) Wish there were more English channels on TV 5.) We asked for a high floor room and got it. 6.) Close enough to the rest of Seoul via Metro 7.) Mapo bridge and Hangang park not too far away 8.) Itaewon is only a few stations (without needing to change trains) to get more halal food 9.) Shuttle food delivery found the hotel very easily - great to get halal food delivered to your hotel 10.) 7-11 at lobby of hotel extremely convenient. Went there 2-3 times a day. 11.) Reception was helpful in answering questions about an emergency alert regarding the weather we go on our phone. 12.) Spacious bathroom

Great Hotel in Central Seoul”

The GLAD MAPO hotel was great and the staff was super accommodating, even allowing us to change our rooms after some confusion regarding the initial booking. RIght outside the hotel were a few bars and restaurants in the area (Gong-deok road was right there and there was a variety of food choices in this fusion of old and new street) as well as two exits to the metro station (Exit 8 and 9). The location is also great as it is in a central location in terms of all the metro locations, including a 5-10 minute rides to Meyeongdong, Itaewon, Gangnam, and more. All in all, I would book here again on my next visit.

Check in was quick and staff especially Leah was very accommodating. I emailed them once when I was out on a tour for something urgent and she immediately replied.

I stayed at this hotel for about 2 weeks last fall and loved staying here. I recommended Mapo Glad to my parents who stayed for about a month last month, and they loved it as well. The rooms are clean and the location is great. Most importantly, the hospitality of the staff is top notch. Kevin at the front desk helped my parents countless of times, and they couldn’t say enough nice things about him. He was professional, kind and extremely helpful. I can’t wait to stay here again on my next trip to Korea!

Very good location with good interior design”

We stayed at this hotel in January, which is a very cold month in Seoul. We chose this hotel as it is just above the Mapo Station and only a few steps from the exit no. 9. Also, we went to emart via exit no. 4 for shopping before we left for airport. You can also get tax refunds on non-perishable items at emart. Coffee shops, fried chicken stalls and eating places (even Korean beef) are just opposite the road. The interior design of the room is modern with shelves, storage, hangers and beds are all very handy with a feeling of your own house. This is the best hotel I have stayed after years of travel in Korea.

We stayed there for five night, the location was perfect as we wanted to stay somewhere closer to airport subway lines. The room was nice and staff were very nice. Especially thanks to Kevin who helped us to checked-in, him and his colleague prepared a nice complimentary wine and a nice hand writing card for our anniversary.

Great first stay in Seoul with GLAD Mapo”

Extremely convenient location, direct line to Incheon Airport and has high connectivity to many subway lines. For those who don't want to lug your luggage up buses / walk far distances after a long day of shopping with your loots - GLAD Mapo is the one for you. Situated near a couple of F&B options such as 'Eggdrop' (serves breakfast like Isaac's Toast) as well as 'Fritz Coffee Company' (a cool, retro cafe which serves fresh, quality bread, tea and coffee). About 3 convenience stores within walking distance too, great for picking up late night snacks! The only downside is during Autumn, as it is cold outside, they do not turn on the aircon hence the air in the room gets really stale. There was also no Bluetooth speakers as mentioned in the website. The 'make up room' service was also not consistent as towels and some toiletries were not replenished on some days. Generally, it is a good stay as the facilities were clean, modern and new. The bed and pillows are to die for - very comfy!!
