The staff were very friendly, the breakfast was excellent. It was easy to get from the airport on the airport bus and into town on the subway. I would definitely stay here again. The beds were great and the tv was huge,

I stayed here for one night for work. I chose this hotel since I needed to go to the north end of Seoul and this was a reasonable distance to where I needed to go. The location for me was good but for people visiting the centre, you should expect some travel time. I would also advise getting the exact... More

Holiday Inn took over this hotel which was formerly Margaret. You can still see traces of Magaret logos, names and deco around the building. You have a direct Airport Limo bus stopping in front of the hotel. There is also a daily free shuttle sending you to key shopping areas of Seoul city. Other than that, the location of the... More

I stayed here for work. The meetings were taking place at the hotel, so the location didn't matter much. However, it was quite far from everything. They do have a shuttle that runs twice a day each way to downtown, which is nice, but very limited. Taxis are not expensive (US$10 from the hotel to downtown), but take about 20... More

Stayed in this hotel because of a meeting. The hotel is decent and clean and staff are nice, but it's by no mean a hotel that I'd return to. The location is not central, the decor is classic and unimaginative. Overall an average hotel, but staff are very helpful and nice.

Stayed here last week on points. Was received warmly by the Front Office Manager who very efficiently sorted out bedding configurations for my 3 kids. The hotel shuttle was a great value add service. Would highly recommend this property for families with kids.

Lovely hotel run by excellent staff. Stayed here using Priority Club points for a few nights. Excellent value hotel. Located off the beaten track in Seongbuk - a suburban location which gives a lovely insight into everyday Seoul life.
