There is a airport shuttle bus, which stops nearby and makes going to and from the airport simple. Good thing is that the motel is located close to a subway station, which makes traveling around town much easier. Surrounding the motel has a couple of eateries, so getting meals are easy. The motel is small and simple, rooms are also... More

The unprepossessing entrance (up steps) belies the comfort to be found within. Mr Kim went out of his way to be helpful. It was typical of the kindness I found in Korea. I stayed in a room which was clean and comfortable with air conditioning, bathroom supplies and soft drinks in the fridge. That the room was windowless somehow made... More

Mr. Kim is the friendly and helpful owner. Four of us stayed 19 nights in his small and small priced hotel. A great place in the centre of a great city. Culture, architecture, shops, markets, food, cheap taxi's, perfect subway system, parks, palaces, 24 hour economy, bars, theaters, football, baseball, nightlife, it's all there in abundance hard to cope.

I was on an official trade mission and didn't want to pay international hotel prices so booked Motel B, I was more than happy with it. What I hadn't appreciated is that in Seoul, whilst it is possible to pay international prices for almost everything, a second much more value economy exists. This does mean adapting a little to local... More

We spent four nights in this motel at the end of our trip across Japan and Korea, and we were very happy with our choice. The location is a stones through away from city hall and many of the tourist attractions in Seoul. Add to that the fact that the rooms are clean and comfortable, and at a very good... More

We selected the Motel B based on the previous reviews and we weren't disappointed. Location is very good and the owner is very friendly. Internet is free and there is a PC in the room (ours had Korean and Japanese language only, so typing English was a problem). The rooms can be quite noisy. Drinks in the fridge are free.... More

One of the hotel with the best service! Excellent! Mr. Kim, the owner is very helpful with all the things we needed and gave us useful informations about the city. He even moved us to a bigger room the next day (we stayed here for 4 nights). Everything is worth the price. Located only 10-15 minutes from the major attractions... More

We booked our room on the internet. Upon arrival we realized that the internet rate was higher than the rack rate advertised at the motel. However I wouldn't be surprised if all motels and some hotels have different rates for foreigners. The manager was very friendly and helpful. He came around regularly with complimentary drinks even though the minibar was... More
