Great Hotel in Seoul”
It was my first time to visit seoul with my family,and be a guest in JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square. We did enjoy our three night stays in executive rooms from 10 Dec to 13 Dec 2015. The services were good, the rooms were fabulous, and the executive lounge was great (especially the breakfast was delicious). I would like to thank the Asst Concierge Manager who helps to drive us to the airport bus stop with our heavy baggage, so that we could get the bus on time. I am much appreciated with his help. Thank you once again the staff's help. I appreciated everything that they did for us. We must stay in JW hotel next time. I definitely recommend this gorgeous hotel to my friends and colleagues.
1 of the newest hotel in Seoul. Centrally located”
From check in to check out it was super smooth. Great room with view of the shopping area and the tiny river below. The room is very clean and bed was big and comfy . Located right next to a metro station, cab ride to Myeoundong was within 15 mins , easy access to tourist attractions. Overall a very good stay at the dongdaemun jw marriott, although I do think location wise Myeoundong is still my first choice
friendly attentive staff”
best hotel in Seoul. i live here for 4 days 3 nights. the staff exteremely helpful and attentive. they were very informative in everything i've asked for. the room spacious, clean and high tech. love the sound system and large bathroom . also the room has big window with a good view of dongdaemun. close to public transport and next to main shopping areas. Love this hotel so much. will definitely come back and highly recommended.
brand new hotel, very impressive”
its a brand new luxury hotel located at dongdaemun ( one of the best shopping area in seoul where shops open until 5 am in the morning). staff are nice and friendly. transportation from hotel to other places is very convenience. Subway station entrance is 2 mins walk away from hotel. this hotel also locate at the city centre which is close to all the other attraction
5 Star Staff at this Great Hotel”
We arrived in Korea and found it a bit difficult to get to the hotel from the airport. We took the airport bus to Dongdaemun and we did not know which way to go to get to the hotel. I recommend that the hotel try to put some signs at the bus stop to show us where to go. We had to walk about 15 minutes from the bus stop to get to the hotel. The lobby of the hotel is small and unimpressive but acceptable. We checked in and the staff was very courteous. The concierge Olivia was very helpful in helping us plan our trip, made reservations for dinner for us at the N Tower, a dinner cruise, and booked a tour for us to Nami Island. She is so patient and friendly with us and we appreciated her attention to detail. We couldn't have gone to these places without her help. The bell girl Jay is also wonderful and cheerful. Kudos to all the staff here at this hotel. The other best feature of this hotel is the Free WIFI that is actually quite fast. Very Recommended for business travelers sick of on/off snail speed WIFI at other hotels. And it's Free! Keep it up! Room is nice and clean, only downside is that they forget to stock our coffee/tea twice in our five day stay. Quite annoying. Other thing I recommend is to have a bidet installed on the water closet. Location of the hotel is quite nice too. The subway station is just outside the hotel. Dongdaemun shopping complexes within walking distance. Shop till you drop till 2am or even 4:30am if you can stay awake. Tip for the traveller, allow yourself at about 1.5-2 hours to get from the hotel to the airport so you won't be late for your flight. Take the taxi. I took the subway...Big Mistake!
We are a family of 7 including children, stayed in three deluxe twin rooms over 8 days end Dec. The double bed is big enough for an adult plus a child. The hotel staff were very helpful, arranged all three rooms next to each other (advance request), that was tremendously considerate. They helped us in every way we required, transport booking, restaurant recommendations etc. The property location, though many guests reviewed as great, we couldn't completely say yes to that. I guess it depends on what one is looking for. This area offers many middle to lower end retail, mainly fashion apparel, and many small eats and food courts. Not an area for upscale shopping or fine dining. There wasn't much to offer for children who have no interest in fashion whatsoever. I would recommend travellers to search up on the different areas in Seoul, choose the right area for you before booking. For sightseeing, pre-book private tours with transport if budget permits, saves a lot of hassle.
Excellent location and services”
My experience is excellent. The location is excellent and super convenience as it is located next to the exit of Dongdaemun Station. In addition, the hotel is situated in the centre of Dongdaemun which makes me easy in shopping. The most appreciate point is I got the room ready when I was early checked in at 10am and the staff are very helpful and polite.
Good Value of money for JW Marriott brand”
It's located just a few steps from Metro Dongdaemun exit (2 or 8). It's good considering we are travelling in winter around 0C. The staff is very good and friendly and they can answer all your questions. You can install an app on your mobile to communicate with the staff too. It was my wife's birthday during the stay and the hotel offered us a birthday cake as well! The gym was really great and large with most of the thing equipped. This is one of the largest gym in hotel that I have stayed. The only drawback of the location is that it is located near all of the fashion (wholesale / retail) shopping mall, where there is lack of small specialty shops and famous restaurants around (compared with Myeongdong and other tourist spots such as Hongyik University). But this is minor as those malls opened all night long and there are still local restaurants around.
Gorgeous place and wonderful service”
Everything perfect from start until check-out, Staff very helpful and kind in every area. Room very nice with breathtaking view of Dongdaemun. Centre locate you can go out to shopping and come back to keep your stuff quickly. Spa and Sauna very nice and clean. Breakfast in the executive floor a bit small of choice but still good.
Great Stay, Excellent location, Excellent Staff”
Excellent stay. The hotel location is great. only few steps from the subway Staff is fluent in English, my special thanks to the concierge staff. They know very well the hotel surrounding and very helpful in finding information for us Room is very clean and spacious. Definitely will stay again in this hotel if I'm going back to Seoul
Best stay in seoul”
That was a superb staying in Seoul. Room is big and clean. Staff are very helpful and most importantly can speak English too.This is a new hotel so everything in it are very new and nice. I will rate it even better than the Lotte Hotel in Meongdong.
JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square”
An excellent hotel that's right by the famous Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP)! Excellent view & wonderful area to explore!
Very good one”
Excellent hotel. Good location, staff are helpful, polite and all can speak fluent English. Definitely will book this hotel again if I travel to Seoul next time.
Great hotel for service and location ”
Depends on what you want to do. If you want to shop in DONGDAEMUN area. This place is in great location. The selections of breakfast is outstanding.
Love the location to go around Seoul. However the airport bus is quite a distance from the hotel. Room is comfortable but pillow is too soft. City view is not that great as the hotel has only 10 floors and surrounded by buildings therefore the curtains have to be drawn all the time.
Enjoyed my stay here!!!”
It was amazing for me and my mom to stay here for 4 nights and the location is super convenient!! I may chose here again at my next Seoul trip!
Luxurious Pool, Comfortability, and Cleanliness”
My partner and I stayed in a Deluxe King Guestroom. Toothbrushes and toothpaste were not provided. We felt the checking in and checking out process was too long and inefficient. Our room was unable to contact front/information desk. On the other hand, our favorite feature of the hotel was the pool. We felt the hotel and our room was very clean. The bed is very comfortable. We appreciate the staff's attentive and accommodating service. Lastly, instead of digging your fingers into the mini bar snacks and beverages and getting overcharged, I suggest going to the local convenient store for your money's worth.
good location if you want to shop at dongdaemun area”
near doota 24 hour fashion shopping mall in dongdaemun.
The staff was nice to arrange the transfer from twins bed to double bed and 3 rooms on the same floor close to each other. When having problem in internet access, staff was helpful to come to the room quickly. Don't know who had breakfast but billed my room, the staff still trusted us not to charge our room. I surely will stay at this hotel again.
Great location, mediocre service ”
After seeing the hotel under construction the year before, we were looking forward to staying here. The location is perfect if you plan on doing some night shopping. It's across the lane from Doota, and across the intersection from many wholesale shopping places in Dongdaemun. Unfortunately our stay didn't start off well at all. The check-in staff were friendly by reserved, most of them spoke perfect English, and were obviously new to their roles. There was confusion over our request to purchase room upgrades, and that was just the beginning of it. Over the next four days, most of our requests were met with half answers, or non-answers.We were given directions to the nearest post office, but weren't told it would be closed. Our shower flooded every single day there, and it didn't get fixed, even though we asked them about it. Despite the great location, we won't be staying here again. For the same room rates, you can get a much better experience at The Plaza or The Shilla. With hotel staff that actually make you feel welcome too.
