    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.

    5 Star Staff at this Great Hotel”
    Location, Staff, Wifi
    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Great location, mediocre service ”
    In the middle of the night shopping district Dongdaemun, close to public transport
    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.
