This hotel is clean, has nice rooms and an excellent location in a cool and nice neighbourhood of Seoul, located close to the Seoul main station which is a quite central place. Moreover staff is friendly and rooms are very well equipped and are cosy.

We stayed there for 5 nites. Yes, the hallways are dark and warm, but the A/C in our room worked perfectly. The room even has a dehumidifier. The big flat screen TV is nice, they even have desktop computer. Wifi worked great. But the weirdest thing is the jacuzzi tub. I am one of those who is a little leary... More

The room was very modern, with a jacuzzi bath (which didn't actually work), large flat screen TV and a computer in the room. Plus all the other mod cons kettle, air con... More

I was very excited to stay at the Elle on the advice of a friend....a drunk friend. While the location was fabulous, the hotel itself left a lot to be desired. I really should have read the reviews first. The hotel room was spacious yet musty and run down. There was a ice laden fridge, dusty everything and the spa... More

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.
