This hotel is cheap compared to many in Seoul, which is great if you're on a budget, but it's not the nicest place as far as the rooms go. My main issue was that I asked for a non-smoking room, but the room I got smelled like it was a smoking room. Apparently, people ignore the non-smoking signs, and the... More

We booked this hotel because it was reasonably priced and close to the DMZ USO tour start. It is really perfect for this as the tour starts very early. It is also close to some central subway stations and near the War Memorial of Korea and Itaewon . Still we were glad we only stayed there one night. The love... More

Older hotel but easy to get to from the train station and a quick walk for an early morning USO tour to the DMZ. Would recommend if that is your plan. Hotel doesn't have a lot to offer though if you are planning on staying over for several days. Bathrooms were big and beds were comfortable. Hotel is aged and... More

I stayed here a few years back and really enjoyed it. This time around it had seemed to lose it's comfortable feel. As I was coming in, I kept noticing couples of all ages coming in and out with a bit of paranoia and secrecy. It had become a love motel basically but besides that, it wasn't too bad. Staff... More

This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. The design of the rooms are spectacular... honestly beyond words. Every time I went to Seoul I stayed here. The area is great, but the room is so awesome I didn't want to leave!

This hotel is not belong to any big company or chain-hotel group. It's kind of local hotel and having a bit similar to love hotel. However, it is clean and spacious room . The room we stayed has 1 Jacuzzi bath tube and separate Toilet room. Only one complain for the room, the bath room has no door.

This hotel is right next to a subway station but at the same time is very difficult to locate. It's a decent hotel for the price but felt a bit dirty. Room service plates were left in the stairwells and smelled pretty bad. Not sure why they're left there overnight. It's a good location and a good price and thats... More

After having to pay up front for our 3 day stay (450,000 Korean Won) we then seen the room. The toilet was leaking on the floor and smelled of urine constantly. The large tub did not fill up, and drained onto the floor. When I wanted to check out early, they did not give any type of refund for the... More

The Elle Inn hotel is very good for the location, the room and the money. The rooms are very spacious and confortable with a nice jacuzzi on the rooms. It has smoking rooms available and it is very, very close to a subway station that you can reach anywhere in Seoul. I do recommend it and If back to Seoul... More

We stayed for 3 nights at this Hotel and it was the best choice even I was a little bit worry because of the "Love Hotel" reviews. But don't worry it looks like one and I wouldn't recommend it if you stay with your boss in the same room unless you like him or her a lot since there is... More
