The room is dirty. The cleaning staff should be fired. The tub had a ring. The side of the bed sticky. The walls dirty. The outside door of the unit had very visible hand and finger prints. When you use the shower, the water flows into the room. The ac varied greatly in temperature. It was hard to get the... More

This excellent hotel is close the COEX convention and shopping centre, 2 blocks away, located in a quite back street with nice little BBQ restaurants, bars and other interesting stores just metres away. The hotel is relatively new (2-3) years and each room is decorated with a different theme. I had one of the cheaper rooms but it had the... More

i had two superior rooms in the hotel... the first one was british themed (nice!), the second one cool white... the concept of having each room in a different design was intriguing and has its appeal; however the hotel needs to do something about ventilation: with the jacuzzi an integral part of the room, there is always water spilling over...

It's close to COEX on a backstreet (with a great coffee shop and some great fried chicken shops along the walk). Google Streetview shows just a sign where the hotel is, but Domu or Naver (Korean search engines) have updated street views if you want to see the hotel's location before you go (search for 호텔 더 디자이너스 and it's...

Hotel was nice looking and in good location, friendly and relatively quiet (back) street, close to 7 eleven and tube station and restaurants/ cafés. Room not large but totally fine, bathroom door is only an opaque glass pane though, and the shower and toilet are quite compact. Also had a funky smell in the bathroom which was difficult to air...

Just a 5 block walk from the COEX venue, the Designers offers a unique set of rooms, each with its own artful theme. My room - a single suite named "Self Expression" - was warm and bright with ample space. The technology was quite welcome - reliable free WiFi, remote control for all lights, climate control and the large flat... More

Other that showing confusing directions on their website about how to get to the hotel (there are two Desidners in Seoul, far a part from each other) my stay at Hotel The Designers was more than good. Excellent the courtesy, availability and promptness of the personnel. The location is excellent to attend events at the 5 min walk massive conference... More

I would say that the hotel is comparable to many European 4 stars hotels in big cities, I was here for a conference in coex. Most of the hotels recommended by the organizer asked for about 160euro a night, while this one was only 80. The staff was extremely fluent in English, the rooms all new and nicely furnished. Also...

These guys tried to do something different. The room designs look good, but they are not practical. My room had an oversized bathtub in the corner, which took a lot of space. It made it difficult to walk around the room, let alone sit down at a desk. Closet too small. Maybe other rooms are better design. I liked the... More

We don't want to stay at those chained hotels, so were attracted to the unique and stylish theme. When we booked the suite double, the picture showed on hotel.com was Room 906, when we arrived at the front desk, they assigned us to a room with messy theme and said we did not appoin the theme room when we booked,...
