This is a great hotel for the budget traveller, close to subway and shopping malls and markets. Room was very clean with great a/c although we had a basement room with no window but large bathroom. Staff very helpful and eager to please. Nice breakfast of fried eggs toast cereal juice and coffee. We will be staying here again.

We find the location of the hotel ideal as it is situated very near to the Hoehyeon Metro Station. It's also walking distance to the Namdaemun market as well Myeongdong shopping area. We do not find walking up the hill to the hotel a problem unless you are carrying heavy luggage. We also like the simple breakfast which is just... More

The hotel is located close to Myeongdong. The room was spacious and very clean. The breakfast was served in a small restaurant on the ground floor. Wifi was available in the room. On my opinion, this hotel was a good choice for exploring Seoul, specially for its reasonable price and pretty good service.

We stayed nine nights in mid May and were quite surprised by the cleanliness, with towels being changed every day. The staff could not do enough and were very polite. The location, near the markets and Shinsegai department store made it an ideal place to see the heart of Seoul. A very enjoyable stay. Did not find the walk uphill... More

Positive- good service from staff who speaks English, nice, clean, big rooms, Negative - worst location for fast-paced travelers, it is far from the subway, far from shopping malls & any tourist destinations, and it really is literally uphill. It would really require extra effort from the time you get out of the subway up to the hotel. Means of... More

If you are looking for a good, cheap hotel in Seoul, I highly recommend the Hill House Hotel. It is well located near the subway line and a number of the most popular attractions in Seoul. I noticed someone complaining about having to walk up a hill? come on, really? It's not steep and if you have that much luggage,... More

Location is the weakest, need to walk uphill. Quite inconvenience if you carry heavy luggage! Staff are friendly. Interior decoration is chic. Bathroom is very big and clean. If they put a bathtub curtain would be much better. In conclusion, it's better than expected!

Very nice and near new hotel. Location is very good. It's up a bit of a hill but if you plan your trip and climb it via the right streets it's not too bad. Breakfast was included and consisted of toast, eggs, jam and coffee. The staff were great and the rooms were nice. I would return.

I got impression that this hotel is just next to subway station. Distance is maybe somewhat few hundred meters uphill. Hotel itself is clean, good and nice service. Nearby many 24/7 small kiosks and restaurants. Subway in Seoul is handy, even though we had problems with baby trolley as this station does not have lifts from street level to platform,... More
