It's not the first time to Korea but it's really out of my expectation to stay in this hotel. We are a family of 5 with a kid and requested adjoining rooms in advance, hotel did provide room upgrade to fulfill our request of adjoining rooms. Staff is nice and able to communicate in limited Japanese or English. even we... More

I can't deny that there is a toilet smell at the lobby and the room. And it is quite strong actually. But the room is overall clean, and the triple room is spacious that all of our suitcases can lay flat on the ground. The bed is rather firm, but for me it's not uncomfortable at all. The air-conditioner is... More

This was our 3rd trip to Seoul. We like staying in hotels priced somewhere from $70 to $90 and like the Namdaemun area since you have two major markets in close proximity. Palace hotel was our choice for this trip. Here are the pros and cons. Pros: LOCATION- it's the closest (except for the Love Motel) hotel to the metro... More

Hotwire rated this hotel a 3.5. Given our budget, this seemed like a pretty good deal. When we arrived, the room didn't look like in the photos. The lighting was poorer and the room looked worn down compared to what was shown. There was also no closet space and we immediately smelled a sewage odor. That being said, I still... More

We stayed at this hotel last week and we occupied a room meant for 3 people. Our room number was 209. We had booked through Agoda and the room rate was quite reasonable. The room wasn't very big and the bathroom was small. There was a small tub and shower and shampoo and bath gel were provided. There was no... More

The location is the best thing about this hotel. It's a few minutes walk from the metro, few minutes to the market which shares the same name as the hotel and 10 mins from the popular shopping district myeongdong. The rooms are small and can get quiet squeezy after all the shopping especially if one has done loads of shopping... More

In terms of furnishing and cleanliness, the room was fine and about what you would expect from a 2.5-3 star hotel. However, there was a terrible smell in the bathroom and it seemed like there was an issue with the sewage system as the bathroom smelled horrendous. If that issue was not there, I think the place would be great... More

We booked 2 triple rooms. The first one seems more spacious, while the other one's beds placing are quite terrible - I need cross over a bed to get to the closet. Staffs are helpful but not really accommodating. They would answer all of my questions politely but didn't offer or provide help to solve our problems. Other than that,... More
