Airport shuttle in front of hotel and subway station just a few meters from the hotel

vabien suite, with a 7 eleven store and a korean restaurant on the ground floor, an outback steakhouse on the second floor, paris baguette across the street and seodaemun station just a few meters away, this hotel is definitely a convenient place to stay. the suite is clean and extremely spacious . a sofa and 2 arm chairs in the living room and a dining table with 4 chairs in the opposite room. the bedroom has twin beds comfortable enough for 2 adults and 2 children. built-in closets line the entrance to the dining/living room and a walk-in closet in the bedroom. the kitchen is equipped with microwave/toaster, oven, fridge, dishwasher, and clothes washer and dryer. and floor heater during winter. basic hotel amenities such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, tissue paper as well as 2 bottled water are provided only on the first day. gwanghwamun, where the popular cheonggyecheon stream is located and where the (hop on, hop off) seoul city tour bus departs is one stop away from seodaemun station. namdaemun market and gyeongbokgung palace is about 5 minutes by cab. take airport limousine bus 6005 from incheon international airport (at 10,000krw per person), the bus will drop you off around 2 blocks from the hotel. going to the airport, the bus stop is outside the hotel, in front of 7 eleven. we will definitely stay in this hotel when we come back:-d

room size. Feel like home away from home
none

Clean and good size suite. It has a lot of wardrobes, unlike the other 2 hotels in seoul that we stays which have no wardrobes. With other facilities in the suite, we feel like 'home away from home'. The tv has many international channels and not just local korean channels. The aircond/heater is centralised so we cannot control the temperature in the room. We found the temperature is a bit too warm (25 degree C) for our liking during daytime (good for laundry though) but pleasant (22 degree C)at night time. Location is very convenient. Airport bus 6005 is right in front of hotel. Seodamun subway station (line 5) exit 6 is 30 steps away to the right and Paris barguette for fresh bakery is 20 steps to the left, 7-eleven is on ground level. Seoul station if travel by taxi only cost 4000won. Staff is professional and speak good english. They were happy to store 2 bags at the hotel for us 1 week before our check-in date while we travel to Busan and Jeiju island. They do not allow early check in regardless of room availability. We turned up at 2pm as most hotel check in time is 2pm, however, Vabien's check in time is 3pm. There are 3 Vabien suites so taxi may drop you off at the incorrect building. Vabien 2 is closest to Seodamun subway station exit 5 or 6, then Vabien 1 (next high rise building, 20 steps away) and Vabien 3 is further down the road and kind of not on the same main road. The taxi took us to Vabien 3 as we came from the other direction. Another taxi took us to Vabien 1. The 3 building are within 5 mins walking.

A good stay”

Vabien Suite 2 is a good value for money place to stay as well as good location. Main positive points are: • Very conveniently located - near the Seodaemun Metro Station where we took our subway rides when traversing the city during our stay • Hotel was neat and clean and staff were friendly and spoke some English • There was also a 7-11 at the Vabien II itself to purchase the T-card (KRW 4,000) for subway and bus rides to the city • Staying at Vabien II, the airport bus (called limousine here), picked us up right in front of the hotel. So convenient. Bus fares were KRW 15,000 each and the bus schedule was available at the hotel - and the buses were very punctual! One minor thing that could be improved on is to provide better range of cutlery like larger mugs to drink water or for coffee/tea making in the room instead of tiny cups and no small spoons. Overall, still a good place to stay.

What a find”

Kitchen with washer/dryer
The water in the shower took a long time to run hot.

The Vabien 2 is exactly what I want in a hotel. Fast internet connection, comfortable bed, kitchen - including a washer/dryer and iron and ironing board. It was 35 degrees in Seoul while I was there, but with a washer dryer I took minimum quantity of clothes. Being a sole (female) traveller, I could chose whether to eat in one of the restaurants or buy food from the many convenience stores in the immediate area and cook my meals. It was my first time in Asia and I was anxious about not being able to find my way about. I thought I would have to take taxis everywhere. And the hotel is at exit 5 or 6 at Saedaemun subway station. And that's the great thing about the subway - all stations have a number; and we can all read numbers. If you know the subway station number and the exit number from that station - you can find just about anywhere - otherwise I was lost. The hotel is also a 5-10 minute walk from the main Seoul station. I took the KTX (bullet train) to Daegu for a business meeting. Cheap, quick and comfortable. The staff at the Vabien were very helpful. I have been recommending this hotel to everyone I have met in Korea.

Vabien Suite 1, 2, 3 are convenient”

We have 04 people include old person and young child, spent time in Vabien Suite 2. Just take 02 minutes walking from Vabien to Seodaemun Station or Bus but take about 10 minutes walking for catching Taxi point. You can walking few minutes for local restaurant with reasonable price. 7-Elevent locate at 1st Floor of Vabien Suite 2. Not big but enough for normal usage. If you travel 01 or 02 people, use the public transportation is cheap but if travel by group for 04 people as my family, Taxi is ok price. You can not order Taxi from Frontdesk because Hotel Reception is just support for Airport Taxi only. Finally, I vote for Vabien Suite 4* service, location, clean and reasonable price (Special for Family travel)

Convenient, clean”

Place was clean and location was convenient. From Incheon airport terminal 2 (where most international flights land), take bus 6005 and it stops right outside the hotel. Bus fare should be 15k won and you pay the bus captain directly (there’s a money box). There is a subway just 3min walk away on the right side of the entrance from the hotel. Just walk past 7-11. The station is called Seodaemun station and it lies on Line 5. It’s a straight way all the way to Gimpo Intl airport so it’s really convenient if you’re taking domestic flights to Jeju or Busan. The subway system in S Korea is organised so you’ll have no trouble switching lines at stations to get to your destination. I recommend downloading the Metro map to plan where you’re going. The Hotel receptionists at Vabien were friendly and speak basic English so there’s no problem with communication. Just don’t be difficult about it. They will help you to hold on to your luggage before your check in time if you arrive early.

Convenient location”

Airport bus stop in front of the hotel and subway station just next to the hotel

The best feature of Vabien is the location. It is very convenient to move around Seoul with subway and Seodaemun Station is just a minute away. It is also easy to go to and from Incheon Airport and the Airport bus or so called Airport Limousine run every 40 minute with the cost of 10000KRW each. The room is kind of Ok, low maintenance, not so clean ZI found coins in the toilet and shopping bags in the drawer, apparently from the previous stay) and with cooking facilities. There is free LAN internet but not Wifi. Anyway, the layout is weird. With 2 bedroom, there is only 1 bathroom with space for shower. another bathroom is very small just like a toilet.

Serviced apartment in a great location”

7-11 on ground floor, next to the subway, walking distance to Nanta theatre, just the right room size

I stayed in the Vabien Suite 2 Residence with my friends. We love the place for its cleaniness and great location. It is a stone's throw from the subway and has a 7-11 on the ground floor which enables easy top-up of funds in our T-Money cards. However, by the time I return to the apartment, the 7-11 has very few items left in terms of burgers and microwave items. My advise is to buy these items at other outlets. Otherwise, the store is adequate. The check in counter (which doesn't look like the usual check in counters I've seen) has been moved to 3rd floor so travellers please take note. Though the building is adaquately heated, I find that the lack of moving air in the room is pretty stuffy. No fan and no remote control for the aircon either.

A good choice for travelers in Seoul”

- Good location (near Kwanghwamun and central Seoul) - Big room, friendly front-desk service - Convenience store inside the building - Airport bus stop right in front of building
- Would have even nicer if the floors had been just a tadbit newer or refurbished - The neighborhood was a bit dead on Sunday

The Vabien II is a good deal overall. It's conveniently located near central Seoul, just a short taxi ride to Kwanghwamun Station or City Hall. In fact, if you have about 20 minutes to spare, you can walk to either of those locations. There is a 7-Eleven and a few restaurants in the building, and a few bakeries and/or coffee shops within about a 5-minute walk. The rooms were spacious, with a built-in washing machine and kitchenette. The bathrooms were fairly large and very clean. I enjoyed my stay there and would recommend it for travelers who want a nice room, centrally located, without the price of a luxury hotel.

Beautiful apartment and helpful staff”

Excellent location just next to the underground Soedaemun subway station

We stayed for 4 nights in early April 2012 at Vabien 2 suites. Arrived late at our apartment by airport bus which stopped in front of our apartment. Took a lift up to 3rd floor and checked in at K stay office without any difficulty. Had a nice 19th floor room facing the police station. The room is well equiped with kettle, fridge, microwave oven, dish washer and LCD Tv. Bought a T card for 2500 won from 711 shop at the ground floor of Vabien 2 suites and topped it up to any amount you want so that you can use it to travel the subway with discount to various parts of Seoul throughout your stay. Very convenient for us.At the end of our travel we can redeem back the balance money less 500 won from the T card at 711.

Spacious room”

Quiet environment

The room has a studio room concept with a kitchen n a washer machine. It has a ironing board and more than enough wardrobe spaces. Juz b extra careful when u are in shower or using the basin tap water, the water pressure will fluctuate and the temperature of the water may get too hot. It has no wifi but has a LAN cable. It is located Near seodaemun subway line 5. Line 5 is convenient for gg airport but not downtown stations which is mostly in line 2 and 4.( Take a cab can save u fr alot of walking which cost abt 5500 won fr myeondong area.) If taking airport bus, the waiting point is juz in front of vabien II. It has a 7-11 at the entrance.

Airport bus stop in front of the hotel ”

Convenient, Airport bus stop in front of the hotel and subway station just next to the hotel

we traveled in group and booked 2 standard double room, 1 superior twin room and 1 two-bed room suite. from all above types of room, the superior room is the most spacious and with the right space. the bed room and bathroom for the suite are a bit too small with rather big living room. so i would not recommend a suite for any travelers. it is better to book 2 separated room. overall, the stay at vabien 2 was good and it was very convenient to go around seoul. just short trip to namsan and myeong dong.

Very good, large room”

Kitchenette, good seating

There are three Vabien Suite Hotels; Vabien 2 is around the corner from the airport bus stop. Our room was large and well appointed; the small kitchenette was very useful for making coffee and breakfast. Having a large couch to sit on was a bit of a luxury in these days of tiny hotel rooms. The location was good, being very close to the metro, upgrade at this metro stop meant it had both lift and escalator - a bonus in Seoul where either are few and far between. There are a few restaurants around, not as many as in other parts of the city, but the metro makes it easy to go wherever you want. Staff were not always as helpful and friendly as in some other places, but on the whole OK. I would stay there again for the size of the room, the metro with good access and the kitchenette.

Great find for families!”

Location near many attractions, great service, free computer use next to the lobby

this hotel was excellent! we were in a family suite with two bedrooms containing a double and two twin beds, respectively. the suite also had a full and a half bath, a kitchen with fridge, freezer, oven, stove, microwave, pots and pans, and dishes. the beds were soft, the bathrooms were nice, and the a/c and tv were easy to work. we were able to get a second room key card for a deposit. the subway was easily accessable; the seodaemun subway station was just down the street. it was a lovely hotel and it would have been great to stay longer.

Convenient location ”

Location, friendly service

It's a modern hotel with great transport links. Shuttle bus 6005 at Incheon Airport (gate 12A) has a stop for Vabien Suites, it costs Won and takes about 1 hour 20 minutes. The nearby subway station Seodaemun (number 532) is on Line 5 (purple), from there it's easy to get to anywhere. Our room on the 19th floor, although a bit small, offers lovely view. There is only wired internet service in the room, but you can get free wi-fi in reception and the 3rd floor office area. Some staff speak limited English but some can speak rather well. They are all friendly and helpful. There is a convenience store 7-11 on the ground floor, plus plenty of shops and restaurants in the nearby streets. We have enjoyed our stay and would use it again.

Any thing at my own home can find at Vabien Suite 2 Residence

It is very convenience to reach Vabien Suite 2 Residence from Incheon International Airport with Airport Bus 6005 becouse the bus will stop just in front of the hotel and this is my second time staying there during my transit stay at Seoul.

Excellent”

Very clean and modern and spacious. Vabien 2 is a serviced apartmenr which for me is more than 4 star! complete with amenities and located near subway line.
the exterior of the hotel doesn't show its a serviced apartment. in fact some of the lights of the signage of the hotel are burnt out. Address is also confusing as there are several vabien hotels around seoul, and this city being non-english speaking, you will definitely get lost which happened to me

I was upgraded and the rooms are perfect! very clean, modern and complete with all amenities. internet connection may be wifi as i could not find a lan cable. Pity i only stayed only a night in this hotel. it makes me wonder if vabien 1 and 3 which are just beside vabein 2 also offers the rooms. There is limo bus form the airport that stops in front of the hotel. There is also a subway station across the street so very convenient to move around. I will definitely stay in this hotel again as it is near the office of my client and near the shopping area of namdaemun and lotte.

Decent Stay”

Amenities, Location

I have been staying on and off in this hotel for past 5 years. Vabien used to excite us earlier given the good price & Residential facilities (Read Kitchenette, Washing Machine, Iron Board, Refrigerator, Oven etc). This visit was a little disappointing though: 1) Breakfast spread has been made Pro-Indian but the quality and variety of spread is reduced considerably, few fruits, no desserts, mostly tea runs out by 9:15 am, Coffee milk is cold (I am a Vegetarian from India but I still missed the variety of fruits, desserts, pasta, salads they used to present in the Breakfast Buffet) 2) Kitchenette - The main reason of staying in Vabien used to be that this is a Serviced Residence but this time there was a hollowed Kitchenette. I had to call up the reception to get cooking pans and saucer plates and glass (Hotel Staff did personally visit the room and replenished it though within an hour) 3) I had specifically mentioned for a room on a top floor but I was given 12th Floor (This has 18 Floors). Two of us had done the booking together but the rooms could not be given together 4) Wifi used to be astonishingly fast here in my 2011-2012 stays, but now it's been made free and speed has reduced considerably, disconnects quite often That said, I do have good memories of this place from earlier visits when it used to be a true 3 Star property by International Standard. Hope the facility regains the former glory. May be this being off season in Seoul, I found it off color.. Overall a good budget stay..
