Stayed from March 27 to Apr 4 (about a wk or so). The location of this hotel is its best advantage. Many subway stations within walking distance. Gwanghwamun Square (Running Man location) is nearby where one can check out the King Sejong Story (museum) as well as learn about Admiral Yi and how he defeated the invading Japs while being...

Spent the new year at seoul and booked 5 nights. A couple of things ive notice is that you either have to bring your own toothbrush and toothpaste or buy one. However it was useful that there was a coffeeshop and a 24hour convenient store at the lobby floor. Location-wise it is a 10-15min walk to myeongdong (shopping heaven). The... More

I stayed in Best Western New Seoul hotel before I stayed in this one. They are next to each other. I would prefer Best Western in this case. They do not have safe in the room and the bed is on the down side. For the price I paid, I would definitely go with Best Western New Seoul for the... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Pro - Close to City Hall subway station. Room seemed newly renovated. Everything was clean and new, toilet and bath were impeccably clean. Hot and cold tap/bath water were functioning. Air purifier and TV looked brand new and working perfectly. Cons - The towels smelled a bit if you put it to your face. If you... More

I booked this hotel after finding a great deal online. I stayed a total of 3 nights. Upon arrival, I was met with a presence of coldness, no smiles and a frustrated face. I was greeted by a man whom I felt was a little angered at my presence. I had initially requested early check in via my booking online... More

Food pieces under table and crumbs all over floor + aircon was NOT working. This is summertime in Seoul, people! Awful! SO tired from traveling,... More

Overall we were very happy with our stay. We stayed in a renovated room, and eventhough the furniture and walls are a bit banged up, the room was clean. The linens and pillows were great. The buffet didn't seem worth it to us at $18 p/p, but I could see it being good for the right person. Instead, we ate... More
