We stayed here for 2 nights in Dec 13. The hotel itself is okay but expensive for what it is. Room itself was clean and relatively spacious and our room had a nice view of the mountain behind the hotel. However, the location of the hotel is its downfall and is far from ideal if you are new to Seoul and want to do sightseeing, etc. The hotel is in a residential suburb and there is nothing much around. Public transport is also not readily accessible from here. It is attached to a convention centre so it's designed for people to stay when they are attending a conference there. There is nothing special about this hotel that would justify staying this far from the main centre of the town at this price. Even though I didn't give Lotte Hotel in Myungdong the highest ratings (reviewed previously on Tripadvisor), I would still rather stay at Lotte Hotel again or a at least a hotel around there.

What I like about chainhotels, is that you know ( most of the time) what to expect and you usually get it! Same thing for Hilton hotels and in this particular case: even more...
The rooms are spacious, modern, homy and very comfortable.
Check out the toilet!!!!! I guess the expression: " sitting on the Throne!" Does apply entirely for this one!
Great service from the entire staff, helpful and friendly.
Restaurants ( a bit pricey for me), but the variety and quality is amazing!
Loved the seafood buffet!!!
Locationwise: just 15 minutes by shuttle ( hourly) to the city with several stops!
Good gym and fyor the fittest amongst you, I would say; climb/run up the mountain behind the hotel and run along the path. Great view of the city.
If you like longer runs, you can run almost entirely covered following the highway above you for several miles to the river. No traffic just for pedestrians and bikers.

We got better treatment at a much less expensive Comfort Inn in Denver before we began our trip to Seoul. We loved the Marriott where we stayed the first 7 nights of our trip for location, service, and room quality.

The accessibility of the hotel was very poor. In addition, there is no convenient store in the hotel, thus customers had no other choice than using the hotel mini-bar even when they are trying to buy a bottle of water. Lastly, they do not provide a good selection of TV channels, therefore, a couple major broadcasting channels in Korea were unavailable. I think the hotel price and rate are quite overated.

You just have to check-in and out, no other worries, trustworthy staff, so nice and helpful. Shuttle is great and there's wi-fi at the lobby. Suites are great for sharing w/ friends and the zone is quiet and safe to walk around or to have a good rest after work and after enjoying nightlife.
