“Fastastic Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Staff are very friend and let us checked in early. The airport shutter bus reach the Door step of this hotel. Posh and clean and even though it's aged, everything is still spanking clean. Myeong dong is just around the corner!

The Myeongdong shops & restaurants are just round the corner. You can get taxi or MTR easily from there. The rooms are more spacious compared to other hotels in Seoul. The only drawback is it's too old-fashioned.

Good size room but beds are old. Need more update on decor and bathrooms. Very convenient location with being the last stop on a direct bus from Airport. Hallway carpet is old and smelly.
It's a good value hotel !

The location is just perfect! You can get off and on the airport easily. MTR station is just in front of the hotel. However, the hotel is a little bit old-fashioned.
Notice: hotel does not provide tooth brush and toothpaste. Please bring your own set. I understand it is eco-friendly. But the hotel should state in their website and tell the travel agency. Moreover, if it does not provide tooth brush set, it should not provide other one-time bath gel, shampoo, etc.

The hotel,though dated, still has some flashes of elegance. I was really pleasantly surprised that the hotel upgraded our accommodation to executive suite. The room was really huge with separate area for guests. And what's more? it provided me a complimentary mobile phone where I can use during my stay. Outbound calls are charged at standard rates, while inbound calls are free. its location couldn't be any better. Airport buses are just right at the door step and subway stations about 15 steps away. Plus it's in the middle of Myong-Dong. How can you get wrong?

Room is big, clean with good view. Interior design is kinda 80s style. Nice toilet amenities.

Good location in close to subway station. Airport limousine bus drop off/pick up just next to the hotel entrance. There is a convenience store and currency exchange shop nearby.

Free wifi provided in the room too.
