My Agent always book me in the Lexington since his office is 5 mins away. I do not really like it as the rooms are getting very old and smelly. The location is good with some bars and restaurants in walking distance. There is a great coffee shop behind the Hotel called Coco Bruni. I recommended this, not the Hotel.... More

The front is magnificent, but once you get to the rooms they are tired, dated and somewhat dirty. This room was booked for me, I certainly would not book for myself unless I had work very close. Lots to do outside, just a pity the rooms could do with a refurb.

Hotel look grand from outside but the room is kinda outdated, well maintained though. staffs are very helpful, we took midnite flight and arrived early in the morning, they let us check in without extra cost! really appreciate that! was it me who didnt explore enough or it is simply located far from everything.

Hotel looks grand exteriorly and in the lobby. Stayed 2 nights over here during last autumn as part of a group tour, so did not experience the poor airconditioning of the room. Rooms looked old but comfortable and stayed 2 nights without much complaint. Eateries and convenience stores can be found nearby. Just exit the revolving door behind and proceed... More

I have stayed at over 3,000 hotels and this one should be torn down, I checked out and went to the Marriott Courtyard. They knew the air-conditioning was not working on my floor so they brought me a fan when I called for service. They admitted that it never worked below a certain floor even though in summer in Korea... More

The hotel looks nice from outside. The main lobby is okay, but the rooms and bathrooms are small, old and dirty. There is a sauna, but for men only. what the heck? The service was good. They helped me with our luggage and cabs, but I noticed that the female staff group is nicer and more helpful that the male... More

Hotel looks great from outside and the lobby also looks appealing. Check-in was done very swiftly. Once I was on 12th floor, I realized the carpet really dirty and the walls not taken care for years. Ceiling had one white light and two bed light and 2 other lights. Bed lights did not work at first, once repaired they could... More

As other reviewers said, there is a marked difference between lobby and rooms. The hotel might have been impressive 20 years ago but not now. The lobby is like a 5* but rooms like a 1* . the. Carpet was filthy, black around dado rail, 70s wall paper on ceiling and walls. Air conditioning is an old floor standing one... More

The facade of the hotel is quite impressive. Although the lobby is small, it has a certain old world appeal to it. Check in was swift albeit came across to be as a little impersonal. We were quite tired after our flight from Busan and expected to have some assistance on the luggage. There was none, not a big deal... More

It is a period western style hotel located walking distance from the Korean parliament and about 20 min walk to Building 63. Breakfast is standard Korean and Western mix, acceptable.
