Had a 24 hour stop over in Seoul. Took the airport bus # 6015 to the hotel which cost $10 per person. The bus stop was just outside the hotel, a bit of hassle taking the luggage up the escalator. Check in was easy. They offered extended stay after the check out time by the hour. The rooms were really... More

Excellent service by the receptionists and bellhop; I was happy enough to have had my room ready 2 hours prior to official check-in time. This was greatly appreciated as I'd taken ill. Staff were very courteous, room was spacious, heated + automated bidet, well-stocked amenities etc. Approximately 3-minute walk away from downtown Myeongdong beauty shops, and just 200m away from...

This hotel is great and easily accessible to the subway. What I like is the fact that the Airport Limousine Bus 6015 stops right at the door step. Also very easy to get to by airport train to Seoul and then two stops by subway from Seoul station. As you get our of the exit 10 of Myongdong station, the... More

This review is aimed at the Elysee, the hotel buffet. I've been a frequent visitor of the restaurant on the second (or third, I forget) floor. It's an all-you-can-eat buffet for 50 USD per head. In the past, it was a gem. Food was excellent. But today, it's not. Honestly, 50 USD per person for a buffet in Korea is... More

The hotel is located in Myeong Dong area close to the Catholic Cathedral. It is on the last stop of the Airport Limousine 6015, costing Won10,000 per person. It is right next to Myeong Dong underground exit 9! The shopping area is just round the corner, plenty of cosmetic shops, cafes and restaurants. The night market is just full of... More

They begin to turn on the air heater instead of air cooler in early November but it's good that the room has a window that can let in cool November air from outside and it's not very noisy since it's tall enough. It's strange that the hotel porter is only helpful on the first day when we arrived with our... More

If you're looking for a 5-Star Hotel, this is not it. But if you're looking for a decent hotel in great location, this is what you want. It's located in Myeongdong, which is a huge shopping area in Seoul.
