Well-established Hotel in the Heart of Seoul”

convenient location, efficient hotel staff, well-maintained

I wouldn't normally book hotels of this price range but the Agoda promo at the time of my booking was very attractive. And you know what? It was worth every penny! From my first email inquiry a month before our trip to the speedy check out on our last day, Sejong Hotel really made us feel like VIP's. Three main things that we love about this hotel - convenient location, efficient hotel staff, and well-maintained facilities. Location - Right in front of the hotel is the airport limousine bus stop. A few steps from the hotel facade and you're at the nearest train station. Cross the street and you're at the Seoul City Tour bus stop. Behind the hotel is the Myeongdong shopping district where you can find all kinds of shops, restaurants and cafes. There's also a big hospital, a Catholic cathedral and several fast food chains surrounding the hotel. Staff - Arrived at the hotel at 11:30PM and was pleasantly surprised with the fast check-in process. The reception staff is very well-versed in English too which is quite impressive. They are also very courteous and efficient. They politely asked us every day if we had laundry, if we wanted our room tidied up or if we just wanted the towels and sheets changed. They efficiently attended to all our inquiries about directions, restaurant suggestions and tourist spots. And these were all done with a smile. Maintenance - It wasn't exactly a newly built or newly renovated hotel but it was very well-maintained. The common areas like the lounge, bathrooms and hallways are always very clean. The room is spacious, equipped with luxury hotel facilities and amenities. We also felt very safe leaving our things, including valuables, in our room while we toured the city. All in all, I would recommend this hotel to any one who's looking for a convenient and worry-free trip to Seoul!

Seoul Convenient”

Location, location, helpful staff

Landed 4:45am at Inchon International Airport, Seoul. Exchange rate in the airport was better than my bank in Hong Kong. (but its even better on the streets in the various shopping districts). Locating the various exit/gate numbers and where the bus ticket, tourist info booths etc. is easy by looking at the directory board near the exits inside the airport. There was only one open bus ticket booth open at the hour of arrival, it was near exit 5B. For us staying at the Sejong Hotel we took the 6015 bus (KW10,000/person) which departs from bus stop 5B (right outside the ticketing booth) every 20 mins. The bus operates in a loop and stops at various other hotels. (see attached photo of bus route and note if you are arriving at Gimpo airport, you will take bus 6015 to get to Sejong Hotel.) Got on the 6:10am bus, there are audio broadcast for every stop, arrived at the hotel at 7:20am. The bus stops right in front of the hotel main entrance. The doorman, concierge and receptionist were all very helpful and friendly. Check in time for our room was not until 2pm, but if we did not mind having rooms on the smoking floor, they could let us check in early, we declined. Left our luggages with the concierge and went out to explore. Turn right as you step out of the hotel, you will find exit 10 of the Myeong-dong subway station (station#424) (Myeong-dong line is line #4, light blue line). Walk along further down the road about half a minute, there is the Skypark hotel and a nice Paris Baguette coffee shop, an americano coffee there is KW3000, and a pastry is about KW1800. they have free wifi. About 2 minutes further down the road on the opposite side is a Macdonalds. Along the way, on the right hand side, there are a few side streets that will lead you (within 100 metres) straight into the Myeong-dong shopping district, it is like Causeway Bay in Hong Kong, Westwood in L.A., Wangfujing in Beijing or maybe Shinjuku in Tokyo.

Awesome Location with Toiletries ”

Sejong Hotel is located just outside exit 10 (no way to miss it). Took AREX train to Seoul Station to transfer to subway to Myeongdong station. Took other guests' recommendation to exit at exit 7 because there is escalator instead of walking up stairs to exit 10 with heavy luggage. However, my advice would be to take exit 10 instead of exit 7 because exit 7 still have some flights of stairs without escalator. Moreover, it is a long walk from subway station to exit 7, then need to lug a 13 kg luggage on uneven flooring to find Sejong Hotel is tough for me despite obtaining the correct direction from locals which took another 7 mins from exit 7 to Sejong Hotel. If empty handed of course is only 2 mins walk provided you know Sejong Hotel location. I'm surprised that hotel provides toiletries including toothbrush, anyway, I brought mine. Housekeeping services are awesome - make up room everyday. Awesome location-just 3 mins walk to night markets & shops; really shopping paradise!

A pleasant, comfy and cosy stay in Sejong Hotel.”

Near to Myeongdong shopping area, Near to Exit 10 of Myeongdong Subway and an Airport shuttle bus stop just in front of Sejong Hotel

It was a great, pleasant and enjoyable stay at Sejong Hotel and Seoul. We were able to check in at 10AM and was upgraded to a Deluxe Twin facing the N Seoul Tower. Check in was fast and easy. Room was spacious, neat and tidy but a little dim. Amenities were provided, however toothbrush and toothpaste will be charged for a fee. The only down thing is they already off the air-con and on the heaters despite not entering into winter season yet, so the room is kinda stuffy and humid. We had to open the big window for some cold air to come in but as our room were facing the main roads, it can get noisy throughout the whole night. They were very kind enough to give us late check out till 1PM. Checking out was fast & easy too. We then board Airport shuttle bus 6015 back to Incheon Airport, right at the doorstep of Sejong Hotel. Although the journey took about 1.5 hours to and fro, we are able to catch some sleep in the bus. Definitely will visit Seoul and Sejong Hotel again and recommend it to others as well.

Dependable place to return to”

Right at the Metro Stop, Good location for city life and near to the park for walking.

Excellent as usual. We often have a 24 hour layover in Korea and we have stayed in a number of different hotels and locations. Sejong is one we return to whenever the price drops to being attractive. Even when arriving in a heavy rain, Sejong is simple to reach by taking the AREX train from Incheon to Seoul Station and transfer to the Metro to Myeong-dong which is only the second stop away. The hotel entrance is just next to exit No. 10 at the Metro making it a short dash through the rain. The hotel is also good with lending nice big umbrellas and a mobile phone comes with each room.

Great location but upgrading noise ”

Location and good hotel services

I would say Sejong hotel is a perfect location and great hotel service if only not the room given to us was just above the upgrading floor. We arrived Seoul at 6am, after a long flight. Upon arriving the hotel at 9.30am, we understood the checkin time was 2pm and went to shop around the hotel area. We were given a large family room at level 12 after 2pm and we were ready to rest our dead tired body after shower, hammering n thrilling started to flooded our room. I called the front desk n they apologized that level 10 and 11 were upgrading but did not inform us upon giving this room to us. Asked if we would like to change, but we were too tired to repack again, since the front desk said noise only exist from 10am-6pm. 2nd day was fine as we left hotel at 9.30am n returned at 9pm. 3rd day of saturday morning, loud hammering n thrilling just below my room woke my family of 4 up at 8am!!! Confronted front desk n left hotel quickly at 9.30am to avoid inhaling the chemical smell in the room. Hotel apologized sincerely and given us free breakfast vouchers n wifi usage in the room for inconvenience caused after 4th day. BUT when we returned after a long day of event out at 10pm, sound still EXIT!!! Summoned a front desk staff to our room to witness if it appropriate to work at late hour when guests were about to rest. He managed to stop all noises then. We would leave the hotel happily if not the grading noise just below our room given without advance notice. Hotel has great location n staffs were very attentive and polite when needed. Family room size is perfect for traveller with children.

A very convenient hotel for travllers in Seoul”

Closet to Myeongdong railway station exit 10

Around 7:30 p.m., I and my wife get back from the Yong Pyong ski resort. This is the first time we travelled by the railway system in Seoul. After taking train by around 30 mins, we arrived Myeongdong station. We can easily locate Sejong hotel at the exit 10 of the station. Although there is a porter attending the entrance of the hotel, no porter service was provided. Luckily, the check-in process in very efficient (i.e. less than 3 mins). The room is not very big....but you know, it is of reasonable size when compared with the room size in Hong Kong. The room is equipped with water heater, hair dryer, shampoo, body lotion and some green tea bags. Also there is a mobile phone for rental, which is free of charge for receving call inside Seoul. The location of the hotel is superb. It is so close to most of the attractions, eg: Nansha Tower, Myeongdong, the palace, etc. We can easily get to these places within 30 mins. On the second night, we asked the receptionist about the price and time needed if we going to Itaewon by taxi. The receptionist explained in detailed. I am disappointed when I was told that there were no fitness centre. I have checked in many website, including Sejong's offficial website, that there was a gym room.

Our family of 3 had a pleasant stay in Sejong Hotel. Wifi connection in the room was good. Rooms were cleaned everyday, and staff in the hotel were friendly and approachable. There's an exit (Exit 10) leading to MyeongDong station right outside the hotel. There are convenience stores and bakeries located along and opposite the hotel. Myeong Dong Shopping Street is a mere 5 minutes walk away from the hotel. Food is readily available in Myeong Dong. And there is a cinema 5 mins walk away from Sejong Hotel.

Good experience”

Location

My friend and I stayed at Sejong Hotel solely for its location. There was a 50% off deal from Agoda when we booked it and it seemed to be a good deal. Pros: Location - right out of exit 10 at Myeongdong Station, lots of shopping and restaurants nearby (a 2 minutes walk away is Congee House - the congee was DELICIOUS and the owner was nice enough to give us a 10% off card after our first visit. I had the seafood congee and abalone congee.) Size - The room was big, washroom was big - nothing to complain regarding size Phone - Yes, each room comes equipped with a phone!!! I was meeting a friend in Korea and it was so convenient to carry a phone around, especially when incoming calls and text are free! If you make outgoing calls, I believe it was 600 won per minute and texting is 400 won per text. Airport Shuttle - The airport shuttle stop was right outside the hotel. SUPER convenient. If you take the AREX and then the subway, you would have to carry your luggage up up up the stairs. Cons: Noise - Since the hotel is facing the main street, we could hear the cars and in the morning, honking. Age - The lobby and room had some age to it, but it was not a huge factor for me Price - Even with 50% off, the room was pretty pricey. I have stayed in 10+ hostels in Korea, and for about $40 - $50 a night, you get a nice (but small) single room with a private bathroom. Seoul has a lot of nice hostels and if you are young and do not mind the size of the room, go to a hostel.

Simple and nice”

Location, space and accessibility

I was in Seoul for 3 days with my sisters (3 of us). We booked the twin room with 1 extra bed. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay (after a gruelling 1 week in japan sleeping like sardines) we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room! It was huge (we could open our 3 luggages and still manage to walk around the room). We were given 1 queen 1 double and 1 single bed (imagine the size) room. Sejong is located conveniently (3 mins walk) in the meyong dong area where there are streets after streets of affordable shopping (mostly cosmetics some apparel and gazillion local restaurants). Also, there are 2 convenience stores nearby the hotel (for certain travellers like us who are always short of something... be it tissue or breathe mints). And a little bakery (Paris baguette) for a quick snack. The down side of the hotel is no FREE WIFI :( We had to gather around the lobby to use it for maps and such. Also, the seating area at the hotel lobby is very limited (1 3 seater sofa and 2 single seater for a hotel that has more than 10 stories).

Great time”

We were very pleased with the staff. Very helpful very attentive to our needs, great service and great service. We had additional family come from Daejon and was able to get the room next to us. Close to Myeongdong but far enough not to hear the people flowing through the area. We were able to walk to the Seoul Tower and to Namdaemun. Hop On Hop Off was across the street. Our Conceige E Chung-dun(hope I spelled it right), was our Hero for Sejong Hotel. He answered all our questions about tours, how to get there and if he didn't have one he got you one before he got off his shift. Our hats off to him and dedicated service. Highly recommended.

awesome location, in the heart of myeong dong”

location, comfortable, prestige

Stayed in Sejong for 5 nights. Very please with the location - shuttle bus to airport just located outside the hotel, very close proximity to myeong-dong train station, 5 mins walk to heart of Myeong-dong. Beds and room were very comfortable, wide screen television. All-in-all, very satisfied. Didn't try the dining in the hotel as we were spoilt for choice in myedong-dong area.

Nice location, excellent service. Will be back!”

Location; service; convenience

Some reviewers have commented that the Sejong Hotel is a bit old and dated. I personally found the hotel to be like a grande dame, aging but still graceful and reminiscent of a past era. The hotel style feels very 19th century with the marble and wood accents and the impeccably outfitted doorman/bellman/staff. I was very welcomed and the reception was nice enough to change my room from a twin-bedded to a queen sized bed at their own initiative. Room service was impressively fast - my lunch was delivered in 5 minutes although they had initially informed that it might take up to 20 minutes to be prepared. The location is super convenient as well - the airport bus stops right in front of Sejong for both Incheon and Gimpo airports and the subway exit 10 is just mere meters away from the entrance. The shopping streets of Myeongdong are just a short stroll away - TIP : if you use the side entrance next to the washrooms/side elevator it is even nearer!

Centrally located to shopping area ”

centrally located, easy access to ariport and transport

The hotel is located at Myeondong with great access to the main road, metro and easy access to airport. From the airport, purchase a bus ticket (KRW10,000 per person) from the ticket counters outside the arrival area. Ride bus #6015 at bus stop 5B for about an hour and it will directly drop you off in front of Sejong Hotel. The front desk and the information staff are friendly and helpful. The room we booked is a triple room which has 3 single beds and the room is big for us to put our big luggage. The bed is comfortable but the pillow is a bit too soft. Our room cannot access to wifi and the staff turnover service very fast. They have suggested us to change to another floor with excellent room wifi access. I am impressed with their good services. The location is very central giving the tourist access to the shopping area and restaurant. Overall, we are very satisfied with this hotel for it helpfulness, friendliness and location. I will recommend friend to stay in Sejong Hotel when they come to Seoul.

Very good location and pleasant stay”

Location, Cleaniness, Friendly Staff

This is my first time in Seoul, and I read positive review about Sejong Hotel so I gave it a go. And it's indeed the perfect hotel! Why? Because it's so convenient located right beside Exit10, I always go back to the hotel to put my loots (from myeondong & hongdae) and then back to shopping again :) it's just 2 stops away from Dongdaemun! Some of the days I even went back for a quick shower/rest before heading to other location. And the room is very clean, spacious and perfect for a good rest. I will definitely come back to Sejong again.

Closed to shopping area & subway!”

Polite and good in english speaking staff, closed to Myeong-dong shopping area and very closed to subway station

Sejong Hotel is a well-equipt hotel, but the equipment inside are a bit old. Anyway, the room is very clean and the staff are very friendly, helpful and they can speak understandble english. I've stayed in the highest floor, and my room can see clearly the N Seoul Tower, a very very nice view. Very convenient to take the airport shuttle bus, because the bus stop is just in front of the hotel. Location is perfect! Myeong-dong shopping area is just downstairs of the hotel, you can shop or eat whatever u want. And very closed to the subway station. I'll highly recommend to short trip travellers.

Extremely Pleasant Stay”

Location! Ease of Travel! Very clean, nice and roomy room!

Sejong is a very cosy, clean and beautiful hotel to stay in. Hotel staff are friendly and efficient. Very enjoyable stay! Sejong Hotel is easily accessible via the airport limousine bus which stops right in front of the hotel. Sejong is right next to the Myeongdong Shopping District, which surprisingly stayed OPEN throughout the entire Seollal public holiday! Moreover, the Myeongdong subway station exit no.10 is also right in front of the hotel. The superb central location of this hotel is really the trump card~
