The room was very clean and spacious! Love the bathroom, big TV and high ceiling. Location was great - very near to Namdaemun market. The only issue was that the staff at the check-in counter was quite unfriendly in my opinion.

Disappointing. Do not recommend.”
First room toilet's ceiling was leaking, and there was a pungent smell. Requested for a change room but i was only able to get it at 9pm the next day. When i went to collect the key card at 11pm as we were out the whole day, the staff looked at the clock and look at me as if i did something wrong. Second room had flies and there were hair everywhere. Would not recommend.

Strange”
There are 2 doors to the room but without one at the jacuzzi. We booked here cos of jacuzzi but u won’t want to use cos it’s very dirty. The loo is very dimmed. The safe cannot be locked. The wardrobe can be use if you are at least 3m tall. The strangest thing is to have a block of ‘wall’ in the middle of the room where the tv is. It blocks the aircon and makes the room very small. U ve to move around carefully otherwise u will get hurt. City Hall is a better nearby station. The food around the hotel is great!

Corner room — second door to the left”
First of all, we booked a corner room with three beds. We ended up getting room #02, which had two full beds. We didn’t complain because we didn’t need the third bed and were worried that the corner room might end up smaller than our current situation. The hotel has very thin walls and floors. We were awake and at the hotel at random hours such as 2PM, 10AM, and 3AM but at all hours you can hear banging from another room or someone running the bath. #01 (the corner room) must have been a “pay by the hour” room because it sounded like there were new people coming in and out everyday. Some people have mentioned in their reviews that this hotel is located in a sketchy area. I’d agree. There’s always men smoking and drinking at the entrance of the road and throughout the road on the way to the hotel. However, its accurate to say that the hotel is located within a 10 minutes walk to Myeongsong shopping street. Hotel was sufficient. Housekeeping came when requested but didn’t change sheets which already didn’t seem fresh. Walls need new paint. We had to buy our own converters because the power outlets are all Korean style, unlike other hotels which will at least provide you with free converters if your devices cannot fit. We wouldn’t stay here again.

Location is excellent! Right in the middle of the action and close to night markets. As other reviews have suggested yes there is no door to the shower and it has a jacuzzi (i didn't use it). Staff speak very little english but I didn't mind as I didn't need anything. Would recommend.. it was cheap and excellent for me!

Tidiness, helpful staff, private jacuzzi
I sent an early check-in request the day before my departure, requesting a super early check-in (like 9-ish). Got no reply frm the hotel even at the very last minute before my flight set off. As I arrived at the hotel that morning, I was surprised that they had aldy cleaned up a room and had it ready for us. I was looking for a Korean BBQ restaurant but couldnt find anything on google. I asked the FO for help and she provided assistant w patient and heart. I will say, the FO service was impressive.

Great hotel which has a big jacuzzi (the kids loves it) and opposite is Namdaemum market. Getting transport is not a problem (2 Subway lines) and the hotel sign can be seen near Korea Post. There are lots of the eateries that closes late at nite plus drinking joint at the back lanes.

The Hotel was much better than we expected. Centrally located to all attraction's (walking distance) as well as near to all transportation (MRT/ Bus). Night-live around the hotel was superb with night food available easily. if you are hungry late night, hop down you will find food stall. Shopping belt's just a walking distance (2 mins).

Staff are also very friendly. And lots of eating areas around! I only wish the room was a little nearer to the Train Station.

Clean Modern and Centrally Located Hotel”
New Modern Design, Clean Room, Good Location
Hotel Irene was a surprisingly wonderful hotel to stay at. from the first time i step into the room, i was amazed how big and spacious the room was, not to mention they had a huge flat screen LCD TV, a big jacuzzi (was staying at the suite room) , and even the toilet seat had electronics and a centralised remote to control the room. the staff were nice and spoke good english, but unfortunately on the day I arrived the staff did not tell us that I had to inform them if I wanted house keeping, which is not truly a common practice in most hotels which I have stayed in thus far. on the second day I told them to clean the room but they forgot to do it, on the third day i asked to clean the room but they told me the house keeping cut off time is 3pm. They did not bother to tell me earlier about the timing, and thus my room was unkept and unmade for 3 days straight with the dustbin was overflowing.

Modern hotel with great location and big room”
Convenient location, big room
Good location for shopping, just 8-10 mins to Myeong Dong, nearer to Namdaemun. Deluxe room is huge with one double bed, one single bed and 2-seat sofa, but still plenty of spaces for luggages. Bonus that jazzuci and computer are available in room. Very high ceiling. Black and white modern style, but the walls and bedsheets are old. Corridor between lift and room is narrow and dull. Front door of hotel with black glass appears like love hotel, but I think it's not because there are families staying there.

Unusual hotel that grew on us”
Good location, airport bus access, near food and attractions
We read the earlier reviews and were prepared for something out of the ordinary but were still quite the fumbling guests upon check in. After getting used to the automated controls for everything, we appreciated other merits e.g. that it was a large room for the price and location, that the bed was comfortable, that there were two complimentary cans of juice (besides two bottles of water) in the fridge every day, that they loaned guests umbrellas for free. Also, there is no lack of food options around the hotel. Namdaemun and Myeongdong shopping all walking distance. Likewise the Gwanghwamun tourist area. Reception staff polite and helpful. It was a pleasant experience overall.

Convenient location. Nice views from 10th floor.
Booked a spacious suite room on special which had great views from the 10th floor and a nice jacuzzi. Hotel has a modern 'business' feel with a largely black and white colour scheme to lobby and rooms. Convenient as close to Seoul Central station for arrival/departure. A short walk to subway stations and . No breakfast facilities as such though meals available in the 'pub' in the basement.
