New & modern living Apartment!!”

Apartment with full kitchen and washing machine with dryer

This serviced apartment was build since 2009 but it is still looks brand new from outside! Friendly front desk staff. they will try all the way to assist in your request. the apartment I booked is for two person but can sleep up to 4pax. Apartment is huge with an island Kitchen, refrigerator, a kimchi cold storage and a washing machine. the whole apartment is 90 percent auto system, modern furniture, daily house keeping except weekend. they have indoor spa, huge gym, medical care centre, etc. I take this as my home in Seoul and I regretted not staying for 5 nites. The rate was affordable when I booked it, but I think the price went up by 10 to 15percent. Not sure if I will be booking again if I am coming alone.. it is worth staying if you have more people to share the cost. there is a 10 floor high end shopping mall next to Classic 500 it is call Lotte Department Store. You can get everything here in this department store, MCM, Coach, burberry, all the skincare products, food, etc.. very convenient. I stay in one of the day because of too exhausted after more than 8 days of traveling in Seoul..I got some fish and vege to cook 2 meals inside the apartment. If u are traveling with kids, E-mart is a good place to shop for all the cooking stuff and it is much cheaper than Lotte. Overall, I have a wonderful stay at Classic 500 and will definitely be back.

Absolutely Fabulous!”

Spacious, high quality finish, well maintained, restaurants, service, location, convenience, beds, bathroom, views

we stayed at the classic 500 serviced apartment from 1 sep to 12 sep 2012. we had 2 very young children, 1 years old and 2 years old, and i was pleasantly suprised by the space of the rooms. our apartment was at least 125 sqm with a very generous bathroom (more about the bathroom!). we stayed on the 11th floor and had district views which were lovely at night. our whole stay was fabulous! the space meant the kids could play and crawl around the rooms safely. everything was modern and very well maintained. the beds were firm and very comfortable and every thing worked! nothing was broken or damaged. the kitchen and laundry were well utilised and i just needed to ask for extra cutlery and glassware when we had guests over. we had a kimchi fridge as well as a large fridge/freezer so there was plenty of room for fresh fruit and vegies, as well as drinks. the room and furniture was very well laid out so every space was utilised with lots of storage space. the baby cots were almost new and very clean. housekeeping was discreet and did a fantastic job each day. they didn't mind taking the dirty nappy garbage. our bathroom was spacious with a rain shower and lots of storage room. the best thing about it? the bidet! this was fully automated with seat warmer, multiple water features and dryer. i was reluctant to use it at first, but then try it once and you're hooked! oh, and there's a tv in the bathroom as well. we eat at the buffet restaurant and the food and service was outstanding. the serviced apartment is next to a shopping centre and department store so it was very convenient for us. the train station was 200 metres away so we took the train to do some sightseeing. there are plenty of shops just outside as well and it really comes alive at night. we plan to go back to seoul and we'll be staying at the classic 500 again.

Highly recommended.”

Lots of space, homely and comfortable.

We have to spend 5 nights in Seoul and cramming 3 persons in a hotel room will be so uncomfortable especially when the son is 170 cm tall. Found the Classic 500 and it turns out to be a real classic. 2 large beds and an also large sofa bed with a really huge LCD TV with lots of channels mostly in Korean though. It feels like home. It's located 10 mins slow walk to the Konkook University Train Station and the number of restaurants in that area is mind boggling. Very happening location with Lotte Department store next door, Starbucks and Coffee Bean downstairs, is like home away from home. First time in my travels, I am not home sick. Finally the staff is really helpful especially MinJee Kim. First time experience anywhere in the world that a hotel personnel actually asked us how was our day out, what we did, go and do. No regrets with the Classic 500.

Extremely satisfied”

The Classic 500 has got to be one of the best hotels in Seoul. The room is extremely large and it is very clean. We saved a lot of money, since we only need to pay for one room, instead of two. The room was very spacious considering there were five of us staying in the room. Also, the location is awesome. Right next to the hotel is Lotte Mall, lots of cafes in the hotel lobby, such as Starbucks and Coffee Bean. Also, in just a 3 minutes walking distance, you can find lots of stores and restaurants. It roughly takes about 15 minutes to go to famous places such as Myeongdong or Gangnam. For such an affordable price, Classic 500 is definitely such an awesome place to stay for a big family. Totally worth it and will always stay here if we come back to Seoul again in the future!

Excellent!”

It's an impressive, self sufficient apartment

EXCELLENT! We stayed 8 nights in Classic 500, in 2 different suites with different layouts. Well spaced, carefully designed layouts and intelligent. It feels like a designer home the moment we stepped in. From the toilet (sensor toilet bowl) to the laundry area (airing function) to the work area (well designed for a business traveller) to the beds (2 double beds with controls to the head rest and leg rest) , it was a real value for money deal. Location, though far from Myeong Dong where the tourists go (about 20-30 mins taxi), is filled with rows and rows of really good eateries at extremely affordable prices. There's so much to eat. I also went for a hairdo at Juno salon nearby. Konkuk station is only 5 mins walk away, and Starbucks and Coffeebean is located on level 1 (no need to pay extras for the hotel breakfast as they serve pretty decent breakfast). There's a 7-11 at Basement level that offers the basics (close at 12 am)

One of the best accomodation in Seoul”

Great location, very helpful frontdesk staff.

I am very surprised when I opened the door to my suite. A large living room with an equally large screen TV greeted me. There's even a kimchi fridge. The Classic 500 is recommended for those who had experienced typical hotels. It's a welcome change and highly recommended for anyone with family. It's located next to a Lotte department store and lots and lots of eating shops across the street. I will definitely stay at the 500 when i make my trip to Seoul again without any hesitation. Like Simon Cowell says "you have 4 big yeses"

Great Hotel with nice room services”

The appliances, the view, the sevice, the tv channels, the heating, the toilet (..yes indeed)

it has been a pleasure to have stayed in the classic 500. it basically have hospitality and advanced technology all wrapped up as one perfect suite. as i have young toddlers travelling with me, usually we find it hard to calm down the kids. but since this hotel is so user-friendly, and considerate in its room designs, it tends to be more of a easier task to keep the crazy kids under control. we can finally have them go to the toilet by themselves, since everything is automatic. plus they won't fuss about when they finish showering because the heating was sufficient and the cold weather in seoul won't get us in the room.

Great place to stay - Home away from home ”

Big, spacious and comfortable

My friend recommended this place as she had stayed here previously. Although it is not very near the shopping areas of Myeongdong and Dongdaemun, it is not that far either. Taxi cost between 10k-12k for 4 people. There is a K-mart just in the next building which is like a hypermart with everything you need. I would definitely go back to classic 500 if I go Seoul again. Airport limousine stops right in front of the hotel which was great. Definitely would go back again.

Fantastic Hotel, Highly Recommend”

Spacious and High Tech Suites

The Classic 500 is a first class hotel in a convenient location. The suite I stayed in was huge, filled with all the amenities and appliance, staffed by courteous and professional people. The hotel was family friendly, and has convenience store in the basement to buy necessities. Overall, I liked the experience very much and will definitely return in my future trips to Seoul.

Perfect for Travel Group”

Spacious, Easy Access to Metro, Well Equipped Gym

An ideal staying place for group travel, rooms are spacious and fully equipped like you stay home away from home. With the equipped open kitchen, we enjoyed cooking of local Korean food every day since it is easy to buy local food at the Emart downstairs. Our kid enjoyed the space and although we booked 3 rooms, the staff is kind enough to arrange us on the same floor, so save us a lot of trouble! Only weakness in room is there is no bathtub, only shower. Location wise, although not located in city centre, it is very close to Metro Station Line 2 and 7, so you can easily go to downtown by 20 minute ride. Nothing more to add, just say I will definitely choose The Classic 500 again when I visit Seoul next time.

Memorable and luxurious stay”

Comfort, Quality, Class

It was an unforgettable four nights stay at The Classic 500. No doubt a high class, five-star hotel featuring large suite rooms that are not only well-furnished but also well-kept. I guess the fact that this hotel was only recently built in 2012 attributed to it. Nonetheless, friendly staff provided good service at the reception and the buffet breakfast though relatively expensive, was enjoyable with the large and varied selection of food. In overall, what was most memorable about my stay would be the suite itself - luxurious.

Great location, spacious room (suite)!!!”

Spacious Room!!!

We stayed in Classic for 2 nights in Oct 2012. The suite living room was really large and "home feel"!! It's very clean and modern! There were 4 individual air conditioners in our suite! We cooked 2 meals in our stay with the utensils provided. There was a washing machine and enough spaces for clothes drying but we did not use it as we only stayed for 2 nights. We had a good sleep for the nights. The bedroom with 2 double-bed-sized beds stick together!! For the location, it is convenience to travel the sight as it is near to metro station; It is convenience to shopping as it is near Lotte department store and Emart; It is convenience to eat as unlimited restaurant around the hotel. We really love this hotel and will absolutely choose and stay in this hotel again when we travel Seoul in the future. Cons: I cannot handle the screen controller because it was in Korean.

Large serviced apartment with simple modern decor”

Beyond my expectation in various aspects. Still have room for improvement though.

location - right next to konguk university,eastern seoul - it's not a popular spot that guidebooks usually recommend. but surprisingly, the community has almost everything a visitor wants/ needs - department store, cinema, book store, countless cafes, shops, korean sujip (pubs) & sigdang (restaurants), supermarket, clinics, beauty salon & 24-hour bistros! transportation - though it's away from incheon airport (west of seoul, it takes merely an hour for the airport bus (6013) to take you to and fro. the bus stops are just right outside & opposite to the apartment's entrance. - subway stations (2 lines) are just 5-min walk. took less than 20min to get to myeongdong room & in-room facilities - almost nothing to complain about - new, large (everything!), hi-tech, well-equiped, comfy bed, good lighting (great for someone who stays for business) - minor comments: - no dvd player (or i didn't notice it?) - no trash bags in the kitchen, which makes things a bit wetty & dirty if one gonna cook - no detergent, dish washing cloths & washing powder. i don't think any visitor would bring those stuff along on their trip! service - polite, sincere & helpful staff at the reception/ concierge counter - speedy check-in & out - comments: - i called the operator at around 5-6pm requesting for housekeeping. however, the staff said that the service hour was over. the hotel management may consider making the service hour more flexible especially for guests who would stay at the apartment during daytime and don't want to be disturbed by housekeeper till the evening - i tried the gym on 4f - spacious & equipments are new. but i was so surprised that there's no locker available for guests' temporary storage room rate - rather high-end among those serviced apartments in seoul. yet value-for-money given such a good quality overall - comment: the hotel management could have the rate competitiveness increased by offering complimentary fitness & spa

It's my second time to stay in Classic 500 hotel. Don't ask me why. When you stay it here for one night ,you'll get the answer and thumbing up is a must. Classic 500 seems to be my 2nd home when I stay in Seoul.

What a great hotel in Seoul ! ”

very very very very spacious room

When i just arrived at the lobby, the staff came to help me to hold the baggage. Their smile and warm greeting gave me a feeling that every customer is their V.I.P !Check-in service has been done quickly( less than 3minutes !) What made me very very surprised was that the room was really spacious (125 sq.ft.) but with a fairly low price. I had fun with my wife playing 'hide and seek' in the room !^^ The view was superb !I could even see the N 'Seoul tower which was very far away from the hotel through those big big windows! The design of the room is simple but modern. Every electronic device is high-tech. The sofa is very large and comfortable . The size of TV is also bigger than those 5-stars hotel that I have stayed in Seoul. The feeling is really really great when you lay on the sofa and watch the euro-cup. The only bad thing if you want me to point out is that the location of the hotel is not very close to those 'hot' places for shopping such as 'Myeong dong', 'Dongdaemun'...

Excellent Serviced Apartment with Minor Flaws”

Spacious, Convenient Location and Good Service

the classic 500 is located next to konkuk university station along the green line that connects city hall, sinchon and hongik university stations. it is also located next to starcity, a big complex housing lotte departmental store and e-mart, this is where you could purchase your groceries. the suite measuring up to 125 sqm is very spacious and comes with a intelligent home design such as automated toilets, lighting systems which you could control with a panel (but it was in korean so we didn't manage to feature out the full functionality of it). the kitchen comes with a kimchi fridge, food waste disposal unit, a very good oven (baking and roasting is possible), induction stove (4 slots), kettle and a decent ventilation systems. it would have been better if there were more pots and pans (not non-stick) and a ladle for soups. sugar wasn't provided for tea and there don't seem to be any coffee in the minibar. the toilet needs some touching up, the rain shower needs to be fixed and one of the doors couldn't be locked. you could do your laundry in the suite too with the washing machine provided. if you plan to do some exercise, the gym is very impressive. our room was 1506, it was facing the rail station and a park, hence there isn't much of a view even though we requested for it. nonetheless, the hotel should be commended for granting us an early check in at 1300 instead of 1500 hours. late check out incurs an additional 11000 krw per hour. the breakfast buffet was average at best. there was much variety but enough to start the day with your classic breads, anchor butter, jams, salads, 4 kinds of cold cuts and a modest selection of hot food.

great residences but bad house keeping service”

big room space & next to lotte department store & e-mart

my second time stay at The Classic 500! We arrived at about 8am in the morning and as usual the same front desk lady as my previous stay (her name is Sue, it was her last day@ Classic) check for available room for our early check in. She got a room for us but it was diff layout from the previous stay, this one without an island kitchen so i ask to change to the same as previous with island kitchen. She got a room for us but have to wait till after 3pm, we don't mind to wait as we are staying for 5 nites, we went for our breakfast and some shopping at e-mart and back by 3pm. When we check-into the room, everything was fine except for the kitchenette things like plate, bowl, pot and fry pan was not wash properly after the previous guess check out. We can still see and feel a tick layer of food & oil stain stick on the plate, pots and pans.. and they don't supply dishes washing detergent, u hv to buy it. I call the house keeping to sent me new set of pans, pots, plate,etc.. when the house keeping lady arrived at my room, she first tell us everything is inside the drawer but we couldn't find some of plate bcos of missing and the housekeeping lady making so much hell of noise and show her totally "BLACK FACE" to us and talking and argued so loud with the front desk ppl although I don't understand korean word but i can understand her body language.. this is so unprofessional for a 5 Star rating hotel to their guest!!! I then decided to give it up and ask her to leave my room as i was exhausted! As for front desk are having a lot of trainee staffs currently, they claim they understand english but they always misunderstood our meaning! that's two of the trainee guys that can really bring u to hell if you are in the hurry for meetings!! after a few incidents, I decided only Speak to the senior staff there. if you are going to stay there, please only speak to Mr Park or Mr Patrick Lee both of them are very senior & speak fluent english especially Mr Park was so helpful!
