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.

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.

Room can be very warm during winter”

The hotel was okay. Quite near to subway station. Use Exit 7 escalators if you are lazy to climb up and down the stairs to get to the hotel. Near to Myeondong shopping street. The staff were quite friendly and we were allowed to check in at 1pm. Room was very clean but very warm. They use a centralized heating system and we feel that the temperature set was too warm that it was getting uncomfortable at times. We had to open the window which can only be open around 2 inches wide. They provided us with a small electric fan but it was still quite warm. Overall it can be a great hotel if it wasnt that warm.
