"Shilla Stay Mapo is very easy to find, 5min walk from train station exit 1 and if you take taxi, drivers know this hotel, you don't have to show address or map. Room is small, not very new but very clean. However, location is not convenient for shopping and eating. If you like to shop at Hongdae or Dongdaemun or Myeongdong and thinking it's not far away, you are wrong! Although it's just 1 stop away from Hongdae, but you have to walk inside the train station for 10-15min at least, so to go to Hongdae, it takes you almost 30min! Can you imagine?! I have no complains about this hotel, their staff is super friendly and helpful but I will not stay again because of the location. I want to put my shopping stuff back to hotel and go out again, or I could do last min shopping like in Myeongdong, apparently with Shilla Stay Mapo, I cannot. In future, I will choose to stay at Hongdae or Myongdong."

"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."

"I stayed with my family for the second time. The last stay was much better then the previous one. It may be because I am getting to use to a great service, nice environment of the hotel. When you travel with your young child it is important room condition, for Lotte Mapo this wasn't the problem, the rooms that I have stayed were so clean with good housekeeping service. Swimming pool is important as well, we enjoyed using it. The best is it works until 10 p.m. The other good thing is the hotel provides a shuttle bus to main shopping areas. Also, public buses and KAL limousine bus stops to/from the airport are located right in front of the Lotte Mapo. The Dongdeuk subway station is right downstairs of Lotte Mapo hotel. "

"It was really convenient for us to get around - 1min to Mapo Station (exit 3) and 4min to Gong Deok Station (exit 8, direct line to Airport). There are also plenty of bars, restaurants, cafes and convenience stores just BEHIND the hotel. If you're looking at bars/pubs, there is an entire street of it diagonally left, across the road. My husband and I loved that Kyochon and BHC (2 of the best Korean fried chicken places) are just in the street behind the hotel! There was a little hiccup though, our bolt lock broke down and we got locked in, but they got us out within half an hour. The hotel manager's professional attitude and service made up for everything - we were promptly upgraded to a bigger room and offered lunch on the hotel (which we declined as I wanted to have waffles from Caffe Bene). Our luggages were moved to the new room, so there was minimal disruption. I didn't think much of it when the hotel manager asked when we would be returning to the hotel, but he actually stayed through until we came back from sightseeing that night (around 9-10pm). Overall, an excellent experience!"

"The location was great, right on the metro Line 2 and could easily get around the city. Additionally directly on the bus line to Incheon airport which made getting to my flight easy as well. The place itself extremely nice and clean, individual bunks with a curtain for privacy. The breakfast area is delightful and sunny in the morning with breakfast prepared for you by the host. Hosts were very friendly and nice, offering advice on what to do around Seoul. Would highly recommend SeoulCube to other travellers!"

"I stayed in the guesthouse for 7 days with my two daughters (aged 6 and 13). The room (large for 4 persons) is clean and amazing, with a sitting room and an open kitchen (commonly used by other two rooms). It was close to the Mapo Subway surrounded by restaurants. It was managed by a couple, a lady and a man assistant (also a puppy). All treated you as friends and gave you feeling at home. They picked up us at Subway by car. We played board games and had hot drink at the common area on ground floor. The guesthouse had a rooftop garden. We joined a New Year Eve party with a band playing Korean pop music. I thanked the lady assistant to company my daughter, who originally went outside alone at evening, for 3-4 hours in her own expenses, until I met my daughter. It is better than many star hotels. I highly recommended this guesthouse to anyone who wanted unforgettable holidays."
