It is like staying with friends...Mr. Baek & Mrs. Jeong were wonderful and very generous. The room was clean and in a great location to a variety of train stations. Close to a number of tourst attractions. Highly recommended. If we have the chance to return to Seoul, we will definately stay here. Nice to have breakfast included.

I can't say I was overly impressed with the hotel Icon, it's very small hard to find and not exactly the cleanest or nicest hotel I've visited. The instructions of how to get to the hotel from the airport had us lost within minutes but thanks to the locals we finally found this little hotel stuck around the back of... More

Unprepossessing exterior but well placed for some of the most impressive sights of Seoul. Room was clean though not large. Great hospitality from owner and husband who couldn't have been nicer. Look for the Ibis hotel which is tall and close by, when you are trying to find it. Thoroughly recommend!

We stayed twice during our trip, both for 3 nights.When researching it seemed to be one of the cheapest around and were not disappointed. Rooms were clean, comfortable. Not big but we don't need big.

We stayed for a week at Hotel Icon recently. On arrival, we found out that there was a miscommunication and we had to go for a smaller room during the first night. That was definitely not the start we were looking for. However, the owner of the hotel came over and recovered the situation. Some goodwill was offered and we... More

My family including my 2 kids stayed there for about a week. The hotel owners, Mr and Mrs Baek, made our stay very enjoyable. Specifically, when my kids arrived at the hotel, they were throwing tantrums, and Mrs Baek gave them toys and cookies, which pacified them immediately. Also, she willingly drove us to Lotte world, a popular ginseng chicken... More
