Selected this hotel based on the previous reviews and location. We were arriving late at Incheon so I thought I could use their free shuttle from the airport to the hotel. Upon more detailed reading I realized that the free shuttle rides at specific hours in the day and the last one goes by Incheon at 19:30 which is earlier... More

We stayed one week here, a family of four. We booked a family room through Hotels.com. I must say the hotel is perfectly situated right in the heart of Myeongdong, a crowded, bustling shopping area in the city center. But the room was really small and the view on the 5th floor was nothing but looking into another building. My... More

We really had a great time at this hotel, it was on a great strip and very nice for the price! They offer a shuttle from the airport for no additional charge, but you must schedule this in advance and also they dont start until 7am and end at 8pm pickup.

We choose this place when we fly through Korea from Fiji en route to UK. Korean Air give you an overnight included in the flight. Most folk stick with the dull Marriott at the airport but we request this hotel in the middle of the Myeongdong Night Market area. See here for Myeongdong Night Market reviews: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g294197-d553546-Reviews-Myeongdong_Hyper_Shopping-Seoul.html The hotel is... More

We changed hotels half way thru our short visit to Seoul to his hotel. On-line reviews were good and found a good offer, so we tried to upgrade. At the end the room was tiny for a family of 4 and wifi signal was very weak. Overall It was better than the Sejong Hotel but I was expecting more.
