    Great Location”

    Hotel is just a stone throw away from subway exit and Myeongdong shopping areas. Airport city bus stop is also within walking distance. Very convenient. Except if you coming by subway with heavy luggage, not advisable to take closest subway exit 10. Instead go by exit 5 or 6 with escalator then walk along main road to hotel. The room is nice and comfortable but the replenish of toiletries is inconsistent. Sometimes toothbrushes are provided sometimes not. There was a staff protest outside hotel going on during our stay but they were harmless and peaceful. These staff just wanted to let their presence felt by lodging outside the main entrance and probably raised awareness among the guests of their unfair employment treatment. Else, overall value for money. The hotel sent a thank you email for our stay after that.

    My Comments:- 1)Not Wheelchair friendly. 2)Should have halal breakfast in order attract Muslim customer from Singapore,Malaysia,Indonesia and Middle East. 3)Every room should have a Qiblat sign(Direction for muslim prayer). 4)Normally tourist are older people and some have difficulties with staircase.

    Very pleasant stay, highly recommended”

    We booked two rooms and they were able to accommodate our request to have adjacent rooms so it was very convenient. Housekeeping was very efficient, always ensuring that our room was well stocked up for the number of people we booked per room. Rooms were also very clean and the beddings and pillows did not have that usual weird smell like in most hotels. The front desk staff were also very helpful when we left something valuable in our room. The only down side was that some of their employees were holding some sort of a labor strike in front of the hotel. But it was peaceful and they did not disturb the guests.

    Need to update everything. ”

    One of the best location hotel that u can find in Seoul. Near everything. MTR station shopping area, and near many tourist place to visit. ( Buk chon, Insadong, palace, national museum etc) and place to eat. Draw back is that hotel is too old. All the furnitures are very old, and inside room, light and temperature control is not operated by switch. When fan ( heating system) was on, we (all of my family) started sneezing. Could be dust from fan system. Bed was big enough. This time they gave us bigger corner room and let us checked in early (around noon). By the way we caught a big cockroach , (which was very unusual for Korea) We stayed few times in the past because of their location.

    This hotel was quiet and clean. The atomosphere was classic. Staff were not so friendly but polite. They were very kind and helpful. I had a problem about the payment of my dinner at a bulgogi restaurant in the town. When I came back to the hotel, I showed my receipt to the hotel staff and asked them what written in my receipt. After talking a minute, they phoned the restaurant for me and asked the meaning of the prices printed in the receipt. How nice! Those staff were so kind.

    I’ve been staying here over the years and it is consistently nice. Helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms, pkenty of amenities. My one complaint was the airport bus stop was moved from directly in front of the hotel to 2 blocks down the street. It was fun trying to push my 4 suitcases when I arrived, and waiting in the rain (there is no shelter) for 20 minutes on the way back to the airport.

    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!
