This hotel is a bit old but it is still functioning properly. It has all the basic amenities that one would require. Competent and helpful staff, clean rooms and bathrooms, air conditioning, a restaurant, a business center, and a souvenir shop. Despite what others say about this hotel about not having toiletries, that is not true. Our rooms are replenished... More

We booked a twin standard room. Room sizes are okay, big enough to accommodate 2 persons. Bathroom comes with a heated toilet seat with automatic water and dryer and a bath tub. Toiletries are initially provided. Room cleaning is done on a daily basis, whetther you light up the "make-up room" or not. Towels are changed daily too. Location is... More

I know other reviewers didn't like the Rex and perhaps since I'd stayed in a less desirable hotel nearby the night before, it didn't look so bad. It could use a little updating and the carpets are a bit ugly but not too bad. The staff was good for me. My room did not smell like smoke and in Asia... More

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
