Spent a business week in this very conveniently located hotel. Close to the main traffic flow, mayor offices, right across from the US embassy, lots of restaurants and convenience stores. Staff, as in any place in Korea was very attentive, always wanting to assist and please. Rooms were great - stayed on the 15th floor - the executive rooms -... More

Stayed here for one week on business trip. This Hotel is located within walking distance of many nice locations in down town Seoul. Also convenient: it is very close to the starting point of the Seoul City Tour hop on/off bus which allows you to see a great deal of the city. https://vimeo.com/115077174

While lobby is lovely some rooms are dirty with stained carpets and odorous bathrooms. The hotel is supposed to be totally smoke free then why do some rooms have ashtrays and matches in the bathroom and cigarette smoke seem to sneak in from air vents? Makes one wonder about the management of this hotel.

Hotel and room were very clean. A little bit dated but not without charm. I'd recommend this hotel if you want to stay somewhere fairly central with easy access to markets and shopping areas, but not right in the middle of the hustle and bustle. Easy walking distance from metro. Airport limousine bus stops and pick up right outside this... More

10-15 mins walk from street markets. On busy road but no roadnoise. Always good prices. Inchon airport bus stops outside. Restaurant average. Staff average. Weekend events on the road outside. Aircon a bit suspect

Great location, but get with the modern day times! If these guys want any of the business / middle tier tourist population, it's obvious the building's old, but if there's one thing they need to improve ASAP!, they absolutely have to improve internet speed AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Too slow!!! in comparison to vast majority of alternatives.

The hotel is perfectly located in a very cetrnal location. Many sites in a walking distance and two subway stations are just a few steps away. Also the KAL bus to/from Incheon airport stops next to the hotel. I stayed in a "business twin" room on the 12th floor. The room was very spacious with a comfortable bed and nice... More
