Stayed here for one night on business, had two meetings with customers in the hotel.
I arrived on an overnight flight that got me into ICN at 7am *yaaaawn, stretch* - taking to Airport Express to Gimpo and taking the subway line no. 5 was a breeze, SKW 5000 o/w, took 70mins. The airport bus 6008 stops 2 mins from the hotel entrance, so I got that one the way back for SKW 8000, it took 80mins. Ideal location for people who are not too fussed about being downtown and who prefer a nice hotel in a good area closer to both airports.
Checked in at 9am (!!), which may have been helped by the fact that I am an Elite Gold member. Room was not too small at all for me, decor very modern, functional and cleverly designed. Agree that people with inhibitions might feel a tad uncomfortable with the glass-wall seperating the bathroom from the bedroom, then again if you are that prude you probably would not be sharing a room with somebody else anyway. I did find that it made the whole room look more spacious, which was nice. Shower big and modern, water pressure high, toiletries and towels in abundance. Queen-sized bed very comfy, not too soft, with lots of feather pillows.
Room service was good, food got a bit delayed, but they made up for that by very good food (had Tenderloin Steak and Haagen Dazs ice cream) and not charging me for the internet as a compensation for the slight delay - I still only had to wait about 40 mins for my food to arrive. Internet reasonably priced otherwise and fast.
Staff very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Executive lounge on 15th floor smallish, but tidy and well-enough equipped, plus huge garden terrace.
Very much enjoyed my stay and would definitely come back - paid SKW 190,000 for one night all in.
