This hotel is in a spectacular location. Easy walk to the cable car, shopping street, markets and tons of restaurants nearby. The rooms were a good size, solid 3 star. Despite the cold weather outside the rooms were so warm. They were also quiet which was great. The breakfast wasn't very exciting but adequate. The bathrooms could have used a... More

The hotel is about 5 mins walking from the main street so it is quite but it is a bit difficult for taxi driver to find the hotel even I gave them the hotel card visit. The room is clean and cozy, the staff is nice, I like the breakfast. The location is good, 7 mins walking to Namdaemon market,... More

We liked this place. The directions given by reader Purobi were spot on. (Thank you.) There's a reason it's called Hill House Hotel. We found the approach rather steep when pushing two large suitcases and carry-ons. (Seoul was the start of a 3.5 week journey.) I say this as someone who has run four marathons and still does half-marathons. Of... More

It's centrally located in Seoul; walking distance away from Namdaemun, Myeongdong and the famous Namsan Park and Tower. A short walk away from Hoehyeon Station (Line 4). Downside is that cabs aren't available in front of the establishment but the hotel can ring one up for you if you'd like (for a van, you need to inform them at least... More

We were guests at a wedding recently and we really enjoyed the experience. The house was Built on the Beautiful rolling countryside of Wicklow with views of the sea. Easily accessed from the motorway. The original house itself is not as grand as other houses of similar style but nevertheless it has made a big effort to attain the feel... More

Nice hotel, basic but clean and great service, staff speak good english, breakfast included gluten free options (eggs, fried rice and cereal). Beds quite hard but I liked them just fine. There was both kettle and fridge in room, supposedly a microwave but I couldn't get mine to work. The area is perhaps a little intimidating to inexperienced travellers (lots... More

We stayed for 4 nights in August 2015. The staff are friendly, especially the lady who serves breakfast. The rooms are not very spacious but they are comfortable and very clean. The hotel is in a great location near the tower, market and shops. It is great value for money.

I liked the hotel.. Mild hill.. Breakfast was good.. Rooms were clean too .. Close to many attractions and markets .. Close to subway station too ... The only comment I have is that if you want to go to a western style restaurant you might have to walk for a bit but there is fast food restaurants close by... More

Location wise is great, since it is near the Metro. Its a bit up a hill so I wouldn't recommend trying to walk to it with your luggage. It's about a 5 min walk to Myeongdong so its very easy to get out. The tram to N. Seoul Tower is also close by. It came with a free breakfast buffet... More
