I haven't stayed at the Lake Hotel for over a year because I rented an apartment. The hotel is as good as it was since my last visit. 100% consistent. Now they have new TV and aircon in the room, however, the last ones learnt old, so not really an improvement. Location is great and reception staff very friendly. It... More

Hotel Lake is a perfect place for short stay in Seoul. Great location, clean rooms and nice staff. Near to shopping and many restaurants. Moderate price, good deal for the money. You can't go wrong by staying here.

I had a room on the 6/F with a nice view over the small lake and Lotte amusement park. There's nothing special nor fancy about this hotel, but I liked it this way. The room is big and clean, well furnished. The bathroom is big with shower and bath. There's a fridge and a hot and cold water fountain. The... More

situated overlooking a lake and the lotte world amusement park. lots of nearby restaurants and night spots. most hotels in area are nearly twice the price, and this hotel has all most people need. a fitness center is the missing item. the restaurant is good for dinner, western style, but breakfast is limited. many restaurants in area make up for...

Over the last 6 years I have stayed at the lake over 30 times. This hotel is 100% consistent. The rooms are very large, spotlessly clean, with a full bathroom including walk in shower. This is not a 5 star hotel, but it is a fantastic business hotel. Very high speed internet (wired), huge lcd Tv, water dispenser with ice... More

Stayed at the hotel for four nights during a business trip to Seoul. Hotel room is quite Ok, although the view of the backside is not so beautiful. Breakfast is something you better skip, costs around 10$ but this is not a buffet, just serving of what you ordered - American, Local or continental type, very minimalistic. Around there is... More

I stay at the Lake Hotel at least 8 times a year. It is consistently good. The rooms have slightly different themes, but similar layouts. This is not a luxurious holiday hotel, however it has everything you need, very spacious rooms and is exceptionally clean with very efficient staff.

Well located hotel with large,comfortable, scrupulously clean rooms with great tub, shower and bath supplies. Fridge and coffee/ tea station and well regulated heat/cool and television all remote controlled. Pleasant accommodating staff. Didn't try the restaurant because there are great soup restaurants, a coffee shop on the park and a dessert cafe to die for within less than a block.... More
