Location is strategic; there are taxis pool in the main road which is nearby hotel. Certainly u can go to incheon using taxi instead bus (if u have >2 ppls). Room is terribly bad, dim light, worn carpet, no free mineral water, service is not friendly, and there is unpicked food near shoe places (slime on the food).

Location is good, just behind shinsegae dept store, across the road, it's myeongdong. The staff is terribly! Not friendly at all! Room maintenance is poor, carpet, smoke smell, towel and lighting are unacceptable!

Very convenient, 10 min walk to myeongdong, hoeyeon subway ext 1 is only 2 min walk, only problem is the limo airport bus stop(6015) is quite far to walk to the hotel. The nearest stop is outside Korean bank and can easily get lost coz there are some many cross over roads. Our room is decent size and seem clean,... More

Location, I give it a 5 star. The hotel is about a 3 minute walk from the Line 4 (Blue), Hoehyeon Station, exit 1. Namdaemun is across the street. Myeongdong is just 10 minutes by foot. Seoul Tower is within walking distance. There are hundreds of restaurants, convenience stores and coffee shops nearby. The twin room is large compared to... More

Hotel is not what we expected for a 4 star hotel, rooms were dimly lit, there was a certain musky smell when we went inside the room. Temperature for AC/heater was hard to adjust. Bed was ok, but pillows were flat. No complimentary tea / coffee. Wifi internet access was good though. Location was good, near Myeongdong Shopping (10-15 mins... More

I stayed at this hotel with my parents in June, and didn't have a good experience at all. This trip was not planned, it's one of those "why don't we just hop on the plan and go" kind of a thing, so didn't spend any time to research at all. Anyhow, all lights in a were not working, AC was... More

Located just across Namdaemun Market & Shinsege Departmental Store. Hoehyeon Station of Seoul Subway Line 4 is just 2 mins walking distance and getting a taxi is also very easy. Shopping in Myeongdong is only 10 mins walk. Dongdaemon (Doota, Migliore, Helloapm, Maxstyle) is also a very short drive by taxi and it doesn't cost much for 3 or 4... More
