friendly english speaking staffs, spacious room”
I was there with my parents for three nights. A bus stop is right outside of the hotel and the hotel provides free shuttle bus to major stops like the subway stations (hongjae station and seoul station ) and itaewon. It takes around 15 min to arrive seoul station and 30 min to arrive itaewon). we joined the DMZ tour where the travel agency provides free pick up service from the hotel. the name of the travel agency is cosmojin. you can get brochure about the tour from the hotel lobby. you can get discount if you join the morning half-day DMZ tour (gather at lobby around 7.40am) with a minimum of 3 persons. it was really convenient especially for travellers with aged parents or young chikdren. The hotel is spacious with 3 rooms where the master bedroom comes with a walk-in closet. the other rooms have big closet and a writing table. the living room is very big with a six seats dining table. the kitchen is spacious too and equiped with a stove and cutlery and wine glasses. The hotel also provides washing machine and dryer.
Good and affordable for family travel”
Even it is a bit far from city central, the room is larger than we expected. We liked the washing machine and dryer inside the house that we didn't need to spend time to hand wash and hang clothes, which saved time and we could be more relax after a full day of activity and tired. Kitchen is clean and tidy, we enjoyed cooking. However, we hope the hotel can have more shuttle bus schedule, especially in morning and night time. It is inconvenience it runs only hourly. We missed 2 times in the Hongje station at late night that we had to take 20-min to walk back to the hotel. No Internet access inside the room is not good.
hotel has a shuttle bus every hour to bring the hotel to the main tourist spots in seoul. the staffs are very accommodating. the rooms are too big for us. the housekeeping did their excellent job. the location is pretty ok that it is near at the shopping marts and 10-15mins away from the subway. the location is safe that you can go home late night.
Service Apartment ”
the hotel is too big for business traveller unless you plan to organize a party in the room. if you are travelling with the family, it's definitely a good choice. the room is big with kitchen, washing machine, cooking utensils.
me with 4 friends stayed at grand suite residence for four days and 3 nights in a 3 bedroom suite. the location is good, just 'bout 15 minutes away from the city center through taxi. local shops and restaurants were just a few steps away. the only negative with this hotel was the unavailability of internet access.
The cleaning is too dirty.”
The cleaning is too dirty. The building is too old.
Quite good for the price”
This was my third time staying here, and it was as nice as usual, for the price. Not a 5-star hotel definitely, not even a hotel, since it is a residence. If you are looking for a place to treat yourself with a luxurious moment, this is not the place. But for a large group, especially with a kid, this is the one budget place I would recommend. The location is not very good, and there is nothing around the building. But there are shuttles to Hongdae and Itaewon.
Excellent service, Spacious, Very clean”
Overall experience was great! The staff were incredibly accommodating, spoke english well, made us feel taken cared of; we are very grateful to them for making our stay in Korea very pleasant. The "take me home" card they gave us upon check-in proved to be very useful when taking a cab. The room was very large, had equipment and toiletries; cleaners came everyday. Location is uphill, 15min walk to nearest subway station, near 7-11 and restaurants. No wifi. It's a good place to relax from the busy world.
Not as good as we have expected”
The room is really big and price is reasonable. It is a bit far away from the Subway, the furniture is a bit old and need renovation. There is also no free wifi provided in the room. We sent a email to confirm with agoda that children under the age of 12 can stay for free when using existing bedding, but the hotel staff told us that children is included when calculating the number of guests stayed in the hotel. They could have charged us fee for 4 extra guests but instead they let our children stay without any extra charges, we really appreciate that.
Seoul is suitable for all parties related visits”
We used the 4 bedroom for my family (2 elders, 2 adults and 3 kids) for 9 nights, we have our own privacy place. We used kitchen, washing and drying machine every day. Hotel provided a shuttle bus runs on an hourly basis. The shuttle stop and return point not clearly for traveller. Although the location may not be very convenient. We are missing few times for shuttle bus, so that we need spent extra money for taxi. I definitely would recommend to family travelers.
Very much self catering”
Stay was fine, wasn't amazing. Thought it'd be semi self catering but it's pretty much entirely self catering, they do provide shampoo & shower gel and that's pretty much it. Beddings were changed every 2nd day (even the cleaner accidentally picked up my pj's as well.. never saw them again). There were 2 small bottles of water given initially.. Cookware, silverware & cutlery are all provided but not washed. There is a dishwasher but not gonna start it for 2 plates and 2 cups? No toaster available for borrowing, DVD machine wasn't installed (we didn't ask for it as weather as nice the whole time). Play room was a bit rubbish. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Free shuttle bus to nearest train station and popular area Itaewon. There are lots of local shops around, supermarket, 7-11, local restaurants, coffee shops, quick walk away is a busy road packed with makeup skincare shops, eatery, train stations, a bit of street food. Very pleasant trip to Seoul for us. Trains are incredibly easy and convenient though it drives us a bit crazy with how many people there are. I would definitely this hotel for a family stay but be prepared ;)
great hotel for family and extended stay”
This hotel was very nice for our family. It felt like we were living in an apartment. We used the 3 bedroom and it was very clean and had a lot of amenities that made staying there very comfortable. We traveled by car and the parking was very convenient.
not a great location but large rooms”
rather than a hotel, it is just like my own house! It's got a living room, kitchen, three rooms and toilets... I would certainly recommend the hotel to travelers who stay for a long period in Korea as they can wash their clothes and cook in the hotel (residence). Although the location may not be very convenient.
Great room size and comfortable accommodation”
This hotel offers many pleasant surprises, including good room size, clean rooms, good location to experience local culture, many inexpensive eating places that one can enjoy good and hygienic local food. I would recommend this hotel to families that are in Seoul for a longer stay and have the plan to enjoy local culture and food. Transport from airport to hotel was easy and inexpensive Transport from hotel to nearest metro train station was free. If preferred, walking to the nearest metro train station was not difficult, in fact it was very pleasant during the Oct days. The nearest station is not far from many of the tourist spots, therefore traveling fee was inexpensive. I would stay in this hotel again if I visit Seoul for holidays.
Spacious residence with complete amenities ”
Grand Suite Residence is the perfect place for a small family on vacation. It reminds me of a Korean home in the city. The place is quite spacious with it's own living room, dining area, full kitchen, laundry. There are 2 bedrooms with one Master bedroom and another single room. It is located in a tranquil area yet right infront of the Grand Hilton hotel. There is also a parking area for guests. The staff are courteous and fast to respond to concerns and informs guests in writing when these are addressed. Overall a very good experience! I had used this for a business trip but in the future I highly recommend to stay during a vacation with family or friends. For dining, dine in the Grand Hilton if you don't want to cook! Wifi is available but you need to purchase.
Value for money hotel”
The airport bus pass the hotel. So its very easyto travel to thehotel by the airport bus. The room is quite spacious with 3 bedroom, one big living room, one dining area, one kitchen and laundry machine. There is a shuttle bus travel to myeondong area. The subway statin is about 10 -15 minutes walk. It's quite convenient to travel to Myeondong from the hotel.
Decent hotel but lack of proper service etiqutte”
i stayed at a 3 bedroom apartment and i had to pay for the additional bed upon check in as 3 bedroom only applies for 4 pax (i had 5 pax). to my dismay, the apartment actually had 5 beds already! 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds each and the masterbed room with a king bed...and one "additional bed" which i paid for, parked in the corner of the master room. so now i have 6 beds, with additional charges...doesnt make sense does it?
Nice hotel ”
we got the 3 bedroom suite, the rooms and living room is quiet big, it has kitchen, microwave, washing machine and just in front of hilton hotel. there is an airport bus stop, only 10,000 won for the bus fare going to the airport. the location of the hotel is a little bit far. it cost us around 10,000 won also to go to myeongdong. there is also a 7/11 store nearby.
Fantastic hotel with large rooms and nice location”
i would definitely come back to this hotel the next time i'm in seoul. very accessible by taxi and by subway line only a 10 minute walk away. the rooms are large, they have 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom suite at very affordable rate. we cook our own food in the kitchen, and you can tumble and dry your clothes in the washing machine provided. the kitchen has plates, utensils, kettle, refrigerator, gas range, and cookwares. the lcd tv is big, and there are 3 or more aircons in each suite room. the beds are clean and the view is amazing. the complimentary shuttle ride is a good addition to their excellent service.
Very Nice and Friendly”
Hotel is in the compound of Grand Hilton Hotel, beside Hilton Convention Center. We've been to this hotel during winter season, we're from tropical country so we appreciate the very good heating of the unit. Kids love the rooms, there are plenty of beds, good for 6 persons in a three bedroom unit. We would have loved it if there's an internet connection in the unit, but if your intention is to bond with the kids, no internet and no tvs in the bedrooms is much much better!!! You can bring and cook your own food, there's even an oven,a dishwasher and a big washer and separate dryer. Unit is cleaned everyday and everything is replenished. they even booked us a transfer night before our departure, very smooth checked-in and checked-out. Use the shuttle bus by hilton going to major shopping area and subway stations.
