I've chosen this hotel because I got just one full day in Seoul and haven't time to waste with bus or taxi to visit the city center. I couldn't choose better. The location is very good, I visit a couple of great buildings and I found a amazing restaurant (not fast food, I real Korean Restaurant) just walking!!!

Great hotel, very centrally located near City Hall. The Korean Air Limousine bus from Incheon airport drops off directly outside - this is a very good way to travel from the airport into downtown Seoul It is expensive (as is all of Seoul) but their are many small restaurants around the area which are much more reasonable to eat at

Hotel was mediocre at best. Good internet though in a good location. The shower and soap offerings were poorly put together. The blinds did keep light out though for jet lagged persons though and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel is just antiquated at the end of the day. Unsure if there is much that is that much... More

Hotel is a bit old, but very clean. The breakfast is very good with a lot of varieties. All the staff are very polite and helpful, and is at a very convenient location. I was with a tour group that booked this hotel. The area is very safe.

Nice and comfortable rooms, spotless clean. The hotel is in a commercial area, and right in front of it is the the busstop for the airport shuttle. Breakfast is (I'd say) excellent but I'll admit that my experience with Korean breakfasts is limited. I can't really compare, but I liked it. The wifi connection is one of the fastest and... More

Staying in Seodaemun

Neighborhood Profile
Seodaemun
Walk within this area, centered on what used to be the western gate of traditional Seoul, and you'll get a glimpse of Korea’s past through the beautiful and historic buildings that are scattered throughout. Whether wandering around Deoksugung’s palace walls or touring more historically somber sites such as Seodaemun Prison, this is one of the best places for culture, architecture, and history lovers. Jeongdong in particular is a beautiful place for a stroll in spring and autumn.
