Decent hotel for a decent price at a decent location.”

I believe my stay at this hotel at the time I booked it was about $180 after taxes. The room was not very impressive and was smaller than I had expected. After visiting other Novotel hotels in the Republic of Korea and I'd have say that the room was marginally bigger than the one at Pusan and smaller than the one in Daegu. All things considered, I think the price would have been more appropriate in the $120-$150 price range. I gave the location 5 stars because it is very close to Yongsan station which is a hub for subways and trains. A short walk from Yongsan station will lead you to Shinyongsan station which is a couple stops away from Seoul Station, and Myung Dong. Yongsan Station also sits underneath IPark Mall which has a large selection of restaurants and stores to shop from. Cleanliness gets 4 stars because I found hair on the floor in front of the sink. Staff was extremely polite when we checked in and checked out. They even offered a upgrade!

5 star for 3 star prices”

I think this is one of the best values in Seoul. Pros: new hotel, great gym/sauna, location right next to Yongsan shopping mall (with great and plentiful food options) and train / subway station (3-4 minutes). Cons: although the hotel is centrally located (and ideal if commuting into “City Hall”/business district or Yeouido) the immediate vicinity in front of the hotel is less than ideal in terms of scenery / beauty. It is the “electronics market” and sort of old and run down. To the East however is a short walk to Yongsan station and many amenities there (restaurants, movie theatre and tons of transportation options) Overall this place is hard to beat if you’re on a budget.

A good hotel near the big transportation hub”

It’s located closed to one of the transportation hub in Seoul, Yongsan. You can initiate your city travel conveniently. A bit of odd bathroom with convertible doors, so please do not panic if you have to share a room. Strangely, hot water was very much lukewarm, possibly because of hot outside temperature? I don’t think so...A very nice bed and TV and high speed Internet, free parking and lots of EV charging stations although some of there were occupied by none-EV.

The hotel is very nice and maintained. You’re easily impressed when you arrive and there’s an aroma that smells amazing throughout which makes you want to stay. The location is conveniently located at Yongsan Station and there’s a small taxi ride to Itaewon and Seoul. I think the staff could be a little more welcoming and friendly. Overall not bad.

A typical Novotel, great breakfast, dont like bathroom”

The location of this hotel complex is weird. It only makes sense if you are at an event, convention etc in the complex. Otherwise stay clear. This is a typical but not great version on a novotel. Every thing works. Staff are nice and helpful, breakfast very good, bed comfortable. The bathroom works - if you are staying solo. There is not enough privacy in the bathroom for this room to be suited to a couple

Very nice stay near Yongsan station”

I've just picked up this hotel due to its facilities ( Gym, pool ) but the stay was much beyond my expectation. Room, Staff, location everything was fine, not so far from Incheon ( under 60min by Taxi, when road is not jammed) . Inside the hotel 24hours-open convenience store. Also breakfast has many menus and I could enjoy variety of Korean food there. Thank you so much for the staffs for responding many inquiries, it was really nice stay. I should spend more time inside the hotel.

The Hotel is within a big Mall called Dragon city. May be it's too new. No driver knows how to go there during my entire stay in Seoul. Even when the hotel staff wrote instructions in Korean on my Agoda booking print out, no driver can find the place without trouble. Hotel staff also unfamiliar with surrounding areas. The only cafe in hotel only opens at 10am. It is ridiculously inconvenient.
