Although this hote is a love hotel with a nightclub downstairs this hotel was very clean tidy and friendly. Had we not been travelling with a local we would never have known. Taxis didnt seem to know where this hotel was located which created some confusion.

I was in a business conference at Sheraton, which is very expensive, so decided to book the Dodo. I took the junior suite. The room is big enough, the tv is big as well and many facilities are all controlled by the remote. Few drink in the minibar, all for free and are added every day. The rooms are a... More

This place is clearly a love hotel, with a Gentlemens Club located on lower ground. Business men in the lobby with females paying for use of hotel rooms by the hour. Neon lighting. Worn down and very tacky room I stayed on Level 4. Good thing about it was the warm tiles in the room, free Wifi and friendly staff.... More

If all other hotels are fully booked this will do . It's a seedy hotel with a dodgy ' men's only ' night club down stairs I should have read the reviews before booking this hotel. We paid extra for the suite room as it advertised a jacuzi bath - The jacuzzi bath jets are all sealed up - so... More

I stayed here 4 nights. It's clean and quiet. It's about a 5 - 10 min walk to get to either one of two subway stations. Food and shopping is on the way to the Yeongdeungpo station as well as in the station. Some of the staff speak good enough English but not all of them.

The rooms are dark and gloomy, the bathroom was awful the lights were red mixed with yellow and green. When we checked in earlier (10:00AM) they charged us 25,000 won. Trash from other customers were left in the trash bin in the bathroom. Used soap was left in the soap dish and the shower and lights were malfunctioning, the lights... More

That cliché phrase "You get what you pay for" exists for a reason. Here I thought I found quite the bargain. $80 for a double twin in August? That's a bargain. The staff is nice and accommodating. Luckily, language isn't that big of a problem for me (I am Korean-American, grew up speaking Korean with my parents) so maybe that's... More

Location-wise, Yeungdeong-po is not convenient for either leisure or business purpose. Seoul is very spead out so even though it looks close to some places it is actually a lot further than you may expect. For example it takes 30mins from the hotel to CIty Hall by taxi. The closest subway station is 10-15mins walk. I am told by my... More

We booked a semi-double which was a good size for 2 of us. Very clean inside with it's jacuzzi bath and a good selection of toiletries. TV mainly Korean but we were able to watch some films in English. Just be careful of the soft porn channels if you have children. The staff didn't speak the best of English, but... More
